100% True but I just really wanted to know what CR7 fans that I don't because I watch both play all the time and the answer is pretty clear to me that Messi is by far the better player he offers way more than what CR7 does.

Sure a lot of the flair has been removed for the sake of pure accuracy, but his ability to consistently be in the right place at the right time for one-touch finishes impresses me a lot regarding positioning.

His mindset (people complain because he scoffs when his team mates score and he doesn't but his mindset is score by any means necessary). Dudes drive is just something that i wish i had when it came to anything in life.

All this to say i don't really know how hard messi works im sure he does just as much if not more im just not privy to it like i am CR7

That is for sure... his mindset of just wanting to be the best is something I wish I had as a youngin.

Ronaldo is always there and he'll always be a threat - even if he's having a bad game. That's what gives him the edge over Messi. Messi almost becomes useless if he can't touch the ball. I have to say that Messi is the greatest talent I've ever seen and probably will ever see - but building a team for the next 15 years is different.

Hope that makes sense,...

Building a team for the next 15 years I would def want Messi. He will make everyone around him better than what they think they are. To me all CR7 has over Messi is his work ethic and his goal scoring abilities. His free kick game fell off if you ask me. I actually rather have Messi take the set pieces than CR7, I used to think the opposite.

People complain about his easy goals but he has sick instincts and determination/will combined with the physical ability to get off the mark and accelerate to get there.

My nephew is a huge RM fan because of me and I always **** on Messi in front of him and tell him CR7 is better. Everyone needs a hero laugh.gif

 

Lol poor nephew haha jk. Messi's quality of play>Ronaldo. Messi makes the game so beautiful to watch and even though he doesn't score as much as CR7 he def scores enough to be up there with him. 

 

I just want to point out that this is the first time I ever had a small debate about Messi/CR7 where people are actually making sense. Everytime I bring this convo up with a CR7 fanboy they just say the dumbest **** sometimes talking about Messi is garbage he doesn't do anything blah blah blah... so respect to you all for sure. 

 

 

Overall I see Messi as someone who can create more chances in a game for the team to win... he can take on 5 guys and make them look like they never played football in their life. Dribbling is on another level and his passing game is just unreal. On top of all this he can score a ton of goals as well (btw Quality of his goals just wow.) Point is to me Messi>CR7 he is all around the better player and has literally everything you want in a footballer in one person. Salute to you all though for a respectable discussion. Never thought I would have a normal discussion on this. Salute ya.

How yall gunna say messi is better than ronaldo or vice versa? Both are neck to neck in goals all time one passes one then the other reacts

I would rate them the same
post #5919 of 50774
It really is awesome how they push each other to higher levels to match and pass one another. Similar to how you sometimes see in tennis players at the top.

His second goal to the top left corner was great. Thought nobody was watching this game since it isn't the epl, la liga or a big team so I don't even bother posting.

I watched some of the match, was also watching the Ipswich vs Birmingham City match.
Mali and Muto were putting in work, it was a good game to watch.
As for Ipswich, I'm so happy to that Niles was loaned out there. He's been a major part of the team since the first game of the season. Just hope he can keep it up

Idk man, CR7 stan since forever..but that goal Messi pulled off in the Copa Del Rey finals last year finally made me see the light. I'm still left wondering how he pulled that off..

But I'll only admit that on a here. I have talked way to much **** to ever admit Messi > CR7 in real life roll.gif drunken debates about this topic never end well
post #5924 of 50774
CR7 makes around 1 free kick per year. Let's not make him out to be some type of set piece expert laugh.gif I like both of them if that matters. I just hated how Messi became a fat @$# and stopped trying until last year, and I hate how Ronaldo takes all these damn free kicks when he knows he's complete @$#@ at them. Ronaldo free kick pose->camera close up on his face->watch the ball go into the stands or into the ankles of the defenders laugh.gif

Here's the line-up and subs for Chelsea thanks to Twitter.

Starting 11: Begovic; Ivanovic ©, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Pedro, Oscar, Hazard; Diego Costa

Subs: Blackman, Terry, Mikel, Ramires, Loftus-Cheek, Falcao and Remy

Ivanovic is starting as per usual......

Arsenal is going to ABUSE him. He's Mou's boy without doubt. It was nice while it lasted Baba. He's not even on the bench. Hell I just realized Willian ain't out there to cover for Ivanovic either. Arsenal's speed is gonna be a sight to see. I say we lose this 2-1.

Only just noticed the odd white section on the back of the Gooners kit... I guess it was designed to be worn tucked-in.

Good morning.

Wish I watch all games today. I am in Chicago for my best buddy's wedding.

It's really good to have Oscar back.

Good pace so far, both teams getting opportunities. Theo needs to time his run better.
