It was by far a bigger choke what happened in the Penalty shootout against Spain in 12'.

You cant really judge him on his 2 CL finals.

He played against a defensive juggernaut in Chelsea in 2008 that even Messi hasnt scored or performed well against.

He played against a GOAT Barcelona team. He was the only player from Man U who tried in that final.

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.

Agree with this. You could stick ronaldo on a lot more teams than messi and he woukd be more effective to me. Messi is an all time great, but I would love to see how he would fare in the epl, I think he needs to show he can perform like he has in the past in a less fortuitous and altogether different team/ league to be considered GOAT
