Yes, and i think the Spanish league are looking after their top stars. How many time are them two allowed through on goal basicly unchallenged. Its daft.

I'm going for Messi. I think Messi could have Ronaldo easy. Messi looks like he's got a bit of karate tucked away. Doesn't talk about it. Saves it for when it's needed. Know what I mean? I think he owns a few nunchucks.
Ronaldo looks soft as pigpoo. His mam dresses him. He's a marshmallow. You can tell by his sulky crybaby face. The boy Ronaldo's a blouse. "Ronaldo" means "lacks the vitamins" in english I should think.

Danny Dyer would back Messi. I think he's right. It isn't even a contest.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Makes Messi & Ronaldo look like sh*te.
He'll turn you outside in.

Nah, he was ok, just not that spark she's looking for. But I don't really want a footballer as a son in law, it would bore the censored out of me.

I've told my daughters there only allowed to go out with boys who own snooker clubs. Whats the point in having daughters if you cant get a free game of snooker?

Ronaldo cos he did it in the Prem and la Liga. Messi looks like a dodgy plumber.

I think I'm going to have to go with Ronaldo as well. Not only has he proved he can do it in another country, and another league, but if you look at the stats between the two, there isn't much difference in the assists*, chances created/key passes etc, so he's every bit as good when it comes to being a team player.

*most pointless, irrelevant stat invented, admittedly.

If you were to build a footballer, you would build Ronaldo. 6ft, fast, strong, two footed, strong in the air, skillful etc. He is the perfect footballer.

He is a bad team player though so I would load him with the attitude towards others as Messi.

There's not much in it between the 2 but over the entirety of their careers i think Messi. And in my eyes He s prettier (personality) and more understated too. As Nakamura mentioned though if you were to build a perfect footballer on paper purely from a technical & mechanical perspective then Ronaldo would fit the bill and over the past 12 months he's been the best. It just seems the football gods when creating him gave him too many personality weaknesses like envy/jealousy/insecurity e.t.c although he uses those things as fuel to try and improve. Messi though seems to have none of those personality flaws and yet over the entirety of their careers still manages to be the best (accrding to the stats) and he's nearly 2 years younger too.
The square is a great shape, and one that is criminally underused in modern game design. In the push to ever more granular, chaotic environments, games have lost sight of the simple pleasures of right angles and straight lines.

For me the perfect player is Alan Shearer. Pace, power, great shot, great team player, strong in the air, able to hold a ball up and a lethal finisher.
