Nee contest last night, messi was superb, ronaldo did fuck all.
Im sure if Ronaldo had Xavi and Iniesta bossing the game he would have been superb as well. Iniesta was the best player last night imo, its like a striker getting man of the match because he scores the winning goal
so its always Messi that has the best game for barca now then?
Which would you have at Sunderland?
Messi for me by a country mile.
Iniesta would have a bigger impact at Sunderland than Messi
To be fair Georgy, Ronaldo got no service last night. MAdrid couldn't get the ball. Messi would have faired no better had the roles been reversed.
Ronaldo is fitter though............as lasstold me last night after I said Messi just shat all over Ronaldo
I think hes an absolute arse, but Ronaldos been in the Premier and proved himself to be quite effective, so I'd have to say him
One of the best players on the planet.
couldnt agree more, iniesta was fantastic with xavi a close 2nd for MOM for me......Messi not far behind but if not for those two giving him the freedom and space to perform a pretty much free role doubt he would have stood out as much
Is the correct answer.
That was the best football ive seen from a team since Brazil in the 82 world cup.
Dragged the nipper in to watch it as it was a footballing education.
They should show that game to kids over here as an example of how the game should be played.
Was a joy to watch, how football should be played imo short snappy passes instead of lump ball.
Barca could have scored twice as many if they weren't spending so much time just toying with Madrid.
So many times they could have put someone clean through and chose to do a few more little triangles
Messi and Ronaldo are two completely different players, Ronaldo would have more effect here than anyone in the Barca team due to him being a one man show, a single Barca player would not shine so much due to the inability of the players around him.
However Ronaldo would not fit into the Barca ethos as they are a great team, Messi is 100% part of that team and they work for each other.
Ronaldo is all about himself. He genuinely believes he is the greatest player of all time and as such the other players should be built around him and jump to his tune, so when he is made impotent it buggers up the whole team.
Messi fantastic BUT wish we had a centre half like Barca have.Poyou or whatever his name is, now that would improve our side.
Both superb players but Messi's the better player IMO.
I'd love to see Messi play in the Premier League but that's obviously not going to happen as he'll be at Barcelona for the duration of his career.
Who? I think thats a stab at Puyol? I hate him to be honest. One of the biggest divers and moaners in the game.
In Spain Messi is better, but if they both played in England Ronaldo would be better.
how did u come to that conclusion?
if they played on the moon lionel would still be better.
