Default Cristiano Ronaldo = GOAT

#Fact

Edit:

Cristiano Ronaldo scores 17 Champions League Goals in the 2013/2014 Campaign to settle a new Record. (Breaking the previous 14 by 2011/2012 Messi.)

Messi's 14 = Boosted by 4 Penalties and a 5 Goal Match vs Leverkusen in the 1st KO Round/Round of 16.

When it mattered: Didn't make the Final. Stayed scoreless in the Semifinal. Only scored twice on 2 Penalties in the QF's.

R16: 1 Goal 1st Leg - 5 Goals 2nd Leg.

Meanwhile Ronaldo: 17 Goals in 11 Games (Sat Groupstage Game and QF 2nd Leg OUT!) Only 2 Penalties, only 1 scoreless Game. 1.6 Goals per Game ratio. Champions League Title.

Greatest Champions League Campaign Ever.

6 domestic titles

2 domestic cups

Ronaldo's a great player but anyone who's actually played football appreciates that Messi is the better player of the two.

Bit of an overreaction to Real mauling Bayern. Perfect counter attacking team to exploit Guardiola's tiki-tika recklessness defensively. We saw Bayern do it to Barcelona last year for example.

Messi actually has 4 Ballon d'Or's. The 3 are just since FIFA officially put their name on it. He won it the year before that too. One of Ronaldo's Ballon d'Or's was won under the same circumstances.

Messi is like a system player. He plays well under a system. It also doesn't help that he sucks badly now. Goal keepers run more than him. Can't be GOAT when you are not even top 5 best player in the world right now.

CR is the player that you put on any team and they become instant contenders. CR plays in many different systems and excel at it.

Again, I am not saying CR is the greatest of all time but he is close because the guys I have watched are Maradona and Zidane. Those guys will always be the greatest but I have also watched CR and Messi they are pretty much even.

I would only have CR in the conversation as the greatest of all time because if Messi is in it, then so should CR because CR is the better player in my opinion. Messi is the product of the system and it doesn't hurt that his running mates are considered the best at their positions too, Iniesta, Xavi and Alves.
