Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Last year in the CL final he was brillaint for 90 minutes, almost costed United with the missed penalty. While this year he worked hardd for 90 minutes, the mid-field just failed to supply with the regular good stuff..
Messi starred in youth tournaments, was going ok in WC06 for Argentina, was annoymous in the Copa America final because again he was muscled out.
It was Xavi, Iniesta n Eto'o who where dictating the play
I'd go for Ronaldo, although Messi's infinitely more likeable. He's a bit more capable of carrying an attack I'd say. Or at least, we know he can, whereas we're not sure whether Messi can because he's never had to. I think he'd probably fit into more systems than Messi too.
The whole "doesn't perform in big games" crap is such bollocks too. Anyone who ever has a bad game in a match against a decent side immediately has it thrown at them, with the fact that Ronaldo scored crucial goals in the first knockout stage second leg, quarter final second leg and semi final second leg somehow conveniently forgotten. It's bollocks when they spout it about Messi, and it's bollocks when they spout it about Ronaldo.
Performances against the other teams in the big-four is also often down on when he slaughters the likes of West Brom, Hull or Totenham.....
Ronaldo. He's the better overall player I think. Better in the air, with the dead ball( penalties and freekicks), faster and more strength. Better at running with the ball. Messi has a slight edge in aesthetics and his kind of dribbling is better. Ronaldo can't do that because of his frame compared to Messi so uses speed more with his dribbling to go past players while Messi uses ball control.

Ronaldo is a more rounded player and can do more things well, Messi is far better at what he can do though.
