This has come up before on DXX, but it's time for the question again - who is the better footballer, and why?
For me it's Messi. In terms of performances on the pitch he just slightly edges out Ronaldo, but it's his overall attitude as a person that makes him stand out for me. On the pitch he's almost the complete player, whereas Ronaldo (in my opinion) is much more selfish and although he's managed to shake off most of the stigma surrounding his habit of diving he's still a whining girl at times. Also Messi does loads for charity and has never forgotten his roots, Ronaldo does everything he can to play up his lavish lifestyle.
So yeah, I know that paragraph essentially says "Ronaldo is a prat," but if we're speaking strictly about football Messi is still a better player. I think the only thing that would help prove that point is if he one day moved clubs, Ronaldo has proved he's excellent for both United and Madrid but Messi just for Barcelona - where to be honest if I played alongside Xavi, Iniesta, Villa etc I'd probably score 40 a season.
Bit of a late post but I would have to say Ronaldo. I do think Messi is a great player but I would have Ronaldo in my team any day. A lot of the criticism Ronaldo gets is unfair such as not doing enough for charity, I was reading an article the other day about how he paid for an 8 year olds fan super expensive cancer treatment. Not sure if it was true but I've read a few like that. He doesn't diver anywhere near the ammount as he used to. People often say Ronaldo isn't a big game player but he just broke a record and scored in 6 consecutive El Classico's and they don't get much bigger than the classico. Sure, he doesn't too well for Portugal but at Euro 2012 after a slow start he pretty much carried them through to the semi's whilst Messi in an arguably better Argentina side doesn't look as good as he does at Barca.
It's all good, and you make some fair points. Internationally Ronaldo is far superior for sure which is something I overlooked, he did indeed carry his country in the Euro's whereas Messi usually looks really average in an Argentina shirt for some reason.
Saying that he has scored 12 international goals in 8 appearances in 2012 for his country, so it looks like he's finally putting that bad omen to rest.
Okay I voted Ronaldo... Not only did he play a whole match with a dislocated shoulder he scored; he also played till he was blind in both eyes lol. More seriously attribute for attribute he is better and he does help defensively unlike Messi who just loses the ball and leaves it for others. Ronaldo has proven he is a good player no matter the team, Man U, Madrid or Portugal... Messi cannot perform without his pillars, Xavi and Iniesta
