I hope this is just trying to respect the opponent and deep inside you dont feel this way, but if you really do then i dont really know what to say... Barca is a big club for more than 100 years but they wouldnt have been the barca we know today if it wasnt for Ronnie... he changed the culture, he made us popular, he made us exciting, he won the fans. Why do you think there are so many Barca fans?

Embarrassing? Really? For all the good Dinho did, you can't ignore the bad either. He was a big off the field distraction which effected him on the pitch down the road which led to his dismissal from the club, if he was more of a professional he could have very well become the greatest player of all time with all the talent he had, shit we all saw it week in and week out at the Cam Nou. Dinho's prime was 4 years, it was one of the greatest stretches for a player ever but if you look at it in the grand scheme of things that isn't a long time of peak level production.

I'd give CR the edge due to his consistency over the course of his career & the fact he can do everything on the pitch Dinho could do (though Dinho was superior play-maker and a better free-kick taker) plus with CR you don't have the distractions that come with Dinho and the injury concerns either. We are going on 6 years deep into Cristiano's prime already..

Cristiano could do everything Dhino could?

I'm dying

Dhino could do anything with the ball - In his prime men were lining up to get beaten. Ronaldo does a couple step overs and wins a corner if he doesn't lose it....maybe sends in a cross. Dhino would carve up your entire squad effortlessly.

Score yes, that's a broad statement though. There any many different ways to do so that everyone can't do as in free kicks, left foot/right foot, headers, from distance & penalties which he has all of those on lock. He can also carve up opposing defenses via tricks or pace (if you say he can't you don't watch games) and he can playmake though it comes in spurts and maybe not as often as people would like. The only real negatives to his game is he dives alot, he doesn't defend, he disappears in some big games & he's not Leo Messi.

And which of those things Ronnie couldnt do?

And you are telling me about off court stuff like CR hasnt done them... are you serious.. he is all over the news every month.. whether with his gf, whether he made a kid somewhere, whether he was at some club...


What are you trying to prove here really... but hear this, if it wasnt for Ronnie, you wouldnt have that guy on your avy now... wanna know why?
well because he wouldnt have been this good now, thats why

CR7 is clearly an all time great. His team would be nothing without him and he's probably the most complete player in history.

There is no doubt that he would dominate any era the past greats have played in.

Just a physical specimen with fantastic ability.

Also, I don't like the idea of Messi being on steroids or performance enhancing drugs. For a majority of his life, he was taking growth hormones to help his growth.

That is not a natural athlete but a manufactured player.

I had more skills than some basketball players in the NBA but I am not tall enough to make the team. Does that mean I am an all time great? If it wasn't for growth hormones, Messi doesn't make the team.

What do they all have in common?

In all of them he was the main man
. Not to mention his wonderful technique, crazy passing, crazy shots with both feet and leadership.

Zidane is one of the best players of all time there is no doubt about it.

Bullshit , he has been the man once and that was in 2006. Players like Makalele, Thuram ,Ronaldo ,Raul , Hierro , Casillas, Djorkaeff, Henry,Dechamps, Desailly, etc have been equally as important as Zidane both for national team and club in their sucsess.

I think through his trickery, the 2 goals in the 1998 wc final and the volley in the 2002 final he earned this legendary status. other than that he didnt do too much. the media, fifa and fans have mistakenly given him more praise than he deserves. I dont think he deserves to have 3 world player of the year awards, just one for 1998 for making the cl final and winning the world cup. in 2000 and 2003 it was his repuation than won it. france won euro and madrid won the league and there wasnt too much to choose from.

Look man, iwas talking about a f*cking peak ( 3-4 years ) cant you f*cking read?

anyway drogba shouldnt be on the list whether its about peak or career, have you heard of dennis bergkamp?

and you was around 5 years old when Cantona played for United anyway, so dont give me that im a united fan shit anyway...

and yeah so was i, but its not only my opinion, look at all the united and premiership awards, cantona pretty much owns them all ( lately though they gave them to giggs as a lifetime achievement )

The level of retardness here is skyhigh. Drogba has dominated the Premier League AND Champions League in a way both Bergkamp and Cantona could not even dream of. Bergkamp and to a lesser extent Cantona have not carried teams at times like Drogba has done.

Hold up ; You're a fan of Barcelona,Bayern Munich , United , Arsenal and Juventus ? GTFO fool
