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

We are, two incredibly gifted footballers. Their work ethic is unbelievable and even though both are in their 30s now that desire to win is as good as ever.

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

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!

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 Id much prefer to watch him than Messi. Messi is one dimensional and even though hes very good at what he does, he doesnt interest me like big Ronnie.
Could you explain in what way Mess is one dimensional?

"Messi is one dimensional"

Some people are just willfully stupid.

I've had a look and all I can see is you saying that he's a one-trick pony which isn't an explanation.

These debates usually turn into who's a Utd supporter and who isnt.
