Before I talk about ronaldo , I just want to you to see two clpis
This is ronaldo and nesta
http://youtu.be/d9gThIpUFCo
This is nesta and messi
http://youtu.be/IXUVVh-S4pI
After you see two clips , you will see that at two clips , one clip is that ronaldo and nesta when nesta is young . Although nesta sometimes use violence to lock ronaldo but I have to say that he is rather tired when he face with ronaldo than messi . . Another clip is nesta and messi when nesta is over 30 year olds and is injured . I just want to say you not compare ronaldo with messi . Actually , if you replace ronaldo by messi or messi by ronaldo ,they hardly can do well their work . . Ronaldo is good at center foward beacuse he is strong , fast so he can over defenders who has tend to use violence like nesta to score golds . In contrast , messi is so small so he hardly over big defender who has tend to use violence to score golds .but messi has perspective about tactics in football which ronaldo never has . That is why people can't replace ronaldo by messi or messi by ronaldo because they has different telent . I just say about best messi 's talent when he doesn't have inniesta and xavi , all pleople who has ability of hold ball well . Actually , after argentina 's coach Alejandro Sabella replace by batista , maradona . , with play right position ,Messi show his talent . He play at the top position with Sergio Aguero and Gonzalo Higuain and help his team to score golds and score golds . In contrast , when batista , maradona is coach of argentina , messi must be people create dangers and score gold alone which can't do with a small player like messi to face with many big defender . About at braca he can socre many golds because they have all people who holds ball well such inniesta and xavi and with titi taka , they never let their enermy team have chance to get ball and creat danger before golds .

To answer the question: Yes, for me it was that good.

I remember watching the sports news on Sunday when I was 7 or 8 (At that time he was in Barsa) and everything they said was "Ronaldo scores again", and everytime they showed highlights... there he was... Ronaldo, Ronaldo...

I was like "Can anybody stop him???"

I accept that he didn't won many Leagues... but other than that, he was pure magic, power and determination. I feel bad because his injuries prevented him from being the very best of all time, but still, despite all of that, despite his 2 knees got destroyed and all his weight problems... he still made a career bright enough to be on the top 5 all time players... Just imagine what he could have accomplished if healthy... there wouldn't be any questions: he would be number 1 (IMHO).

That's why he's that good for me.

He was the most talented(and the best too) forward of all time, not Messi not van Basten not Baggio, FIFA World Player of the Year 3 times, 15 Goals in 3 World Cups.
Over 500 played games and over 300 goals, he was the best!!!


He always played equally well both in the league and in the national team, not like Messi as an example.

(sorry for my bad english)

Ronaldo was a fantastic striker, but he was also a selfish player. Messi for example, aren't that selfish, better at dribbling and a completely different finisher. Maradona was a playmaker first and foremost, and made all the teams he played for a lot better, so there's really no point in comparing.

I don't think Ronaldo is overrated as a player, but I don't disagree with Amateurs initial statement that Raul+Morientes probably were better in combination. But there's other things to consider than just pure goals, as Ronaldo was a huge star that probably brought in a lot of extra bucks because people wanted to see him do his magic.

He's clearly one of the greatest strikers of all time, but there are several other great strikers who are more or less equal in my opinion.

If you're a fan of Ronaldo, by all means he is the greatest but the whole world wouldn't agree with you... but does that really matter?

To the guy above me;
Messi scored 8 goals in 4 matches last season for Argentina, who generally lacks everything but strikers. I believe there was a hat-trick against Brazil in there as well.

His club tally is 333 matches, 259 goals and 103 assists. And he has 6-8 years left to play on top level... In other words, he's Ronaldo's equal goalscorer in nearly half the matches... and Messi is not a target striker.

[MENTION=170451]Sabatasso[/MENTION] : thank you . I total agree with you . there are stll some players who are better than him such batistuta , romario , Marco Van Basten, roberto baggio but I still like him . In addtion to his talent , I think that he also has many enery to over difficulty . I still remember at qualifying tournaments of south america zone at world cup 2002 , although ronaldo is injured but when he still shined with rivaldo to help brazin win champion at world cup 2002 . Similar to , when he is injured at ac milan at 2008 , almost people think that he hardly return to play games . But he continue shining with 23 golds in 38 matches and 12 golds in 27 matches when he return brazin to play for Corinthians at 2009 and help it get sao paulo cup and brazilian cup after Corinthians get champion at serie B . That is why I alway like him more than anyone even though there are still some players which is better than him . Thay is also reason why he is called El Fenómeno , not because his talent is more than anyone but a strong enery to over difficulty .

Also messi : I also agree with you . I also think that messi is better at midfielder than a stricker .

Really is good to see, one thing that drives me mad is this title he's received over the years 'Fat Ronaldo'. One of the most disrespectful titles in the world of football, man deserves better.

I hope it's still okay to say 'Fat Frank', though.
It is most certainly not.

"THE LEGEND" is what he should now be referred as. Even [MENTION=76586]BarnDoor[/MENTION] said it in the ShoutBox last weekend when he scored.

You know I was only pre-empting your faggotry when I said that. It was certainly never meant.

'Fat Cunt Frank' is more apt.

Frank Lampard is the most admirable English player since Gary Lineker. Frank Lampard is already a legend, and he's still playing near his top level, England should be damn proud to breed that kind of player.

How is he the most admirable English player since Gary Lineker? On what grounds?

786 matches, 239 goals and 131 assists from MIDFIELD position. What more do you need? 27 goals in 94 international matches, mind that England has a craptastic national team.

Frank Lampard is a legend, and still going strong. One of the greatest English players in history, there's no denying the statistics, including PL player of the decade (2000-2009).

You can wonder all day long, it doesn't really matter because a goal is a goal and as a Barcelona fan you should know that better than most.
