No, Messi plays more as a cross between a 9, a 10 and a 7 these days.

As for 'best since Ronaldo', I don't necessarily disagree, but Thierry Henry?

Why is Benzema there?

It's between Aguero and Suarez.

Lewandowski is awesome and wanted us to sign him for ages before he went to Bayern, but he's not quite on Suarez and Aguero's level. He's in sh*t hot form though and that's why he's being hyped up. Probably the most natural finisher of those on here.

Aguero and Suarez are very close for me, Aguero's still only 26 too. Both are as good as Messi and Ronaldo on their days, but Aguero's injuries obviously ruin his rhythm. He's come up with big moments as well but hasn't always performed for his country whereas Suarez from a footballing perspective has and is already Uruguay's top scorer. Despite his rashness, Suarez is the best out and out no.9 for me since the original Ronaldo and can score all types of goals, from all kinds of distances - and has done it on a number of occasions in a number of competitions.

Aguero has been the main striker in a team of superstars for 4 years now, Suarez is finally getting to play in one of those teams and delivers every single week. Even formed a great partnership with Sturridge and almost single-handedly dragged Liverpool to the title - he did everything he could for them to win it, but was let down by p*ss poor defending and goalkeeping all season long.
Massive lol. Pretty much agree with everything else though, Suarez is definitely the best no.9 out of all of them.

Why is that "massive lol"?

Aguero scored 5 goals in less than 20 minutes last weekend.

Suarez is the best out and out striker since the original Ronaldo, does it both for club and country.
Think Thierry Henry might have something to say about that. It's a ****ing joke that he never won WPOTY

I could score 5 against a McClaren Newcastle side. If there was ever a manager and a club that defined specialist in failure they'd be the ones...

Also that Martial pocketed by Mert comment

So? If that was the case we could say there are hundreds of players (past and present) who are as good as Messi and Ronaldo on their day. What distinguishes those two from the rest is that they can produce the goods on a consistent basis.

Also, scoring 5 goals, as exceptional as that is, just doesn't warrant the same credibility when it's against probably the poorest Newcastle side I've seen in quite some time. Aguero loves to go missing on the biggest stages in football, both European and international, where Messi and Ronaldo thrive.

Right now it is Lewandowski.

Overall though it has to be Suarez. However it would be Aguero if he managed to stay fit.

"On his day" - if scoring 5 goals doesn't count as being on his day then not sure what is. That was my point. Messi and Ronaldo have scored 4/5 goals in games before - but even thats always against piss poor opposition bar Messi v Leverkusen.

I agree he hasn't really turned up for Argentina, but he's scored consistently in the big games in the Premier League, 2/3 against Bayern last season, think he scored against Barca and Real as well as the most famous Premier League goal of all time.

Even those two are nowhere near peak Henry who was regularly winning games for Arsenal single handedly.

I hated facing that Arsenal team so much. He always ****ing scored a wonder goal against us.

His back heel against Charlton was one of my favourite goals ever tbh. Sheer genius.

I didn't put my original point across well, what I was essentially trying to say is scoring 4/5 goals in one game doesn't put you on Messi/Ronaldo level, even on 'their day'. I wouldn't class Julio Baptistas game against Liverpool at Anfield where he scored 4 goals as being the same level as Messi.

For example take Messi's performance against Bayern last season, the quality of the goals and Messi's overall contribution to the game is what stands him out. Even his game against City in the second leg, he didn't score but it was one of the best performances I'd ever seen from him.

Do you understand what I'm getting at now? I've never seen Aguero control a game like Messi has, Aguero is simply an outstanding finisher and quite a good dribbler, but he will never give off the same vibe as Messi. Suarez is a lot closer to that level though. That's why players like Zidane and Maradona are regarded as being some of the best players, they didn't score a huge amount of goals but their ability to lift poor sides to unreachable heights whilst displaying great amounts of football abilities is what won over nations and people all over the world.

EDIT: The closest Aguero has gotten to that was his last minute gasp against QPR, and he'll always be remembered for that. I'll probably get my head bitten off for this, but the more I think about it, the less impressive it feels. Not like City were some desperate minnows and weren't expected to win the title, he just saved them from huge embarrassment.
