    Messi and Ronaldo are the only great ones. The others don't come close.

    Maybe Falcao, Xavi, and Pirlo.

    Messi is in a different class to all the others, Ronaldo is a world class player but still can't do the things Messi can do. Plus Ronaldo is annoying at times ! Messi is a guy you can imagine running down to the park with his friends just to kick a ball.

    Don't think Van Persie is a world class player, yes a great player but too many injuries over the years to show his full potential. He will do well with Man Utd but only has a few years left at his peak. To be fair he was up against it playing in a average Arsenal team for the past few years.

    Surprised you don't have Iniesta, what a player he is !

    Oh come on guys!! Messi over Ronaldo?

    Ronaldo is a very complete player- headers, freekicks, everything. I think he is the best player, Messi and van Persie are somewhere below that. van Persie is not consistent enough to be called one of the greatest, however if he has a great season this year then who knows.

    Did you see Messi tonight for Barca, he had a quiet game and still scored 2 goals !

    Messi can do everything, Ronaldo almost can do it all as he cant pick the ball up from goal 60 yards out and beat 5 players to score a goal like Messi.

    Only people I know who rate Ronaldo better than Messi are Man Utd fans who would love him back !

      He can do it.. It's just hard to do it when you're playing against

    The factor that makes Messi one of the best players of his time is he is extremely hard to tackle. His size and center of balance make him a very tough player to defend against.

    I watched a bunch if highlight videos about Messi and he doesn't really seem to use fancy dribbling moves; just uses the basic cutting and changing direction.

    Rolando is a great player with out any doubts. I just don't believe he will be able to keep up with Messi the 2012-2013 year.

    EDIT BY MODERATOR: Why does your location say "Chicago" when your IP is in Romania?
    I'm staying in Romania for a while but I'm from Chicago, is there a problem?

  • I think it's hard to call Messi or Ronaldo as being the better player. Messi is more creative and impressive on the ball where as Ronaldo is more physical/powerful and has done it in more than one league. These two are by miles the best of their generation and are true greats. RvP isn't anywhere near the same league nor are any of the other players mentioned.
