    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Difference I see between Ron and Messi Ronaldo has proved his ability in more than one country. Messi has a team built around providing him the ability to shine. For me it adds up to Ronaldo being the better player. They both play in the same league which apart from 4 teams is not massively competitive . One has a team built around him. The other plays with a team of superstars. Messi looks very good running at people and the benefit of a low centre of gravity which most of the top players had. Ronaldo has an around better game and has wonderful balance for a tall bloke If rating out of 10 Ronaldo 9 Messi 8.5

    Why do all youngsters......

    The word literally is the one that grinds my gears/boils my piss. If you really need to use it, at least use it correctly.

    Magnússon on his way

    Interesting one as I personally think he will go on to much greater things than us . Is it just me but it seems the better the opponent the better he played, certainly looked good playing against top level opposition but a bit weaker against lesser teams. A bit of the Rio Ferdinand about him in that respect. I too think he has been mismanaged. Made a scape goat by the manager at times. And even blamed for goals by the manager when he wasn't on the pitch if I remember rightly on on RB interview. He has been shunted around the defence when others are out injured and suspended and dropped when they come back even after good performances. I really do think he has been treated poorly by the head coach.
  4. Really!! You nearly lost your kids and wife over 11 sweaty blokes kicking a bag of wind around. Astounding!!

    England's Greatest XI

    Maybe. And that's probably when I have watched him. Truth be told I am not that interested in watching Barcelona or anything much in the way of modern football, which leaves me a little cold by its commercialism and badge punching journeyman. That said I don't mind going on YouTube looking at talented I individuals show reels

    England's Greatest XI

    Exactly. Pick out the best bits of many people's career going back many years. So get watching and don't limit yourself to post the date you started watching football. Thank you for backing up my argument ;p

    England's Greatest XI

    I don't pay for subscription tv. I have seen Messi live maybe 4 times in my life. 2 games average what's all the fuss about. 1 game anonymous. Game outstanding. Based on that my opinion should be he is average. But I somehow know he is not average

    England's Greatest XI

    Without doubt all magical and in terms of skill ability head and shoulders above him. But as complete footballers not close I'd put Maradonna at the top of those. He pretty much won napoli 2 titles. I know the had a couple of other decent players but never has 1 player turned an average side the way he did. Once he left it went down hill pretty quickly. Best could be in there but his talents were never seen on the world stage Sorry gone off track.. none of them are English :laugh:

    England's Greatest XI

    Well that wasnt the qustion. If you are putting in your own stipulations probably best you don't reply. At the end of the day I could say Albert adomah is the best player ever as I have only seen Messi occasionally on tv and YouTube, never live over a period of time to judge him. It's a pointless blocker you are trying to put in. What happens if I have only ever seen Messi play on tv 3 times and he has had a shocker in all of them. Is he shite? Or do I decide he is not shite due to football writers opinions, fans opinions and statistics?

    Even the player who played in 66 reckon the 70 team was better. Shows best doesnt always mean winner

    England's Greatest XI

    Rudd Gullit for me. Left back, right back, centre back, wing back, winger, centre midfield, off the striker, centre forward. He could play them all at a very high level. For me the most complete footballer that ever lived. Yes better players in certain positions. Bet never has there been a more complete footballer. Best player ever for me.

    England's Greatest XI

    Without doubt, talent is talent, if they had the same training and diet they would still be greats, whether some could have got away with the physicality they used then, I don't know, but potentially the likes of Maradona, Pele, Matthews Best Charlton would have been even better than the current crop, as they had to deal with hatchet men, they would love the protection they would get in today's game. It would be interesting to see if Ronaldo Messi et al could adapt to being cut in half every single match. Like you say a very different game, but I believe the old stars would adapt to the training pace and diet. Class and technique is always there

    England's Greatest XI

    Hell of a lot better, but Pearce had some attributes better than Cole. Cole for me is the one of the few English true world class players we have had in the last 15-20 years
