Ronaldo is ok in the EPL where the technical standard is lower than in Spain (in general) put him up against well organised, better players and he just resorts to pouting and sulking.

Messi is sheer genius. Ronaldo, the Graham Hick of world football

Messi or Digeo M Who is better?
too early to tell

let messi finish his career before we judge but at this stage maradonna
I haven't  seen as much of Diego as you but for mine is one of the best i have seen. Messi is looking so good. I guess he would have to perform at a World Cup and dominate like Diego did.

these days i cannot see one single player dominate a world cup as much maradonna did in 86 and 90

the 1990 argentina team were complete pish but he and the goalkeeper got them all the way to the final

86 team were class but again maradonna got them there
