Quick vote to see who people think is best. (Trying to settle an argument at work more than anything else)

Ronaldo for me.

Reasons, Messi use of HGH as a boy-young adult/Lack of International Win unlike Ronaldo/Messi stayed at Barca - Ronaldo moved in various leagues.

None really completely compelling, but just my own opinion on it.

Both lose points for me on refusing to attend the Balon D'or when Modric won and they knew they wouldn't get recognition.

We are blessed to have been witness to two players of this level in our lifetimes however.

Totally different players, same results though (goal count)  their styles are not the same so hard to separate as people will prefer their own
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

A pointless exercise. 

Just enjoy the 2 of them, cause there'll be some hole when they're gone... Nobody else currently comes close

Two phenomenal players Ronaldo's performance the other night was outstanding he had no right to score that first goal but sheer will got his head to it.

Messi will always be the best for me. Ronaldo's antics from when he was younger and the fact he's such a diva round the place does my head in. . . plus he played for the most horrible club in the world and I've had one cheer himself up after the weekends humiliation by telling me "Ronnie is the best player in the world Ronnie is a red!"

Big Ronnie for me. Always felt Messi was a bit of a one trick pony.

I think they are the best two we've seen so far and it's not that close to third. Who's better is up to personal preference, don't think there is a definitive answer.

The only discernible difference in the 2 players is the fact Messi is no great header of the ball . . . his passing is far superior to Ronaldo's in that  he actually passes the ball!

Good Lord....have you not seen his record this year v 'The Big Clubs'?

Not something you could ever accuse Messi/Ronaldo of....no shows.

I just like knowing Ronaldo could do something spectacular to win a game. Good in the air, a rocket of a free kick, back heel, overhead kick, a strong solo run Yes he can be a petulant child, but Iíd much prefer to watch him than Messi. Messi is one dimensional and even though heís very good at what he does, he doesnít interest me like big Ronnie.
