I think that cristiano is an awesome player. His speed, power, and technique makes him an excellent player. I think that in a way cristiano is better than messi. Because he plays like himself in any team. He doesn't need other good players to help him do what he does. However messi has an advantage over cristiano its clearly not his SPEED but is his control of the ball while dribbling. Messi is a tough player to get down and steal the ball from. Cristiano is much softer but I think that if he played a little bit tougher he'd become the best player in the world for sure. Even dough I am a huge fan of ronaldo. I still think that messi is better. But not for too long. I have a feeling cristiano is going to get better and better every day.
Messi is over hyped, whereas Ronaldo gets targeted for every little mistake!
No one seems to bother about the fact that Messi missed the penalty vs. Chelsea and was non existent in the games which really mattered - he kept plundering goals against weak teams in pointless games. Meanwhile Ronaldo shone when his team needed a leader - be it for Real Madrid or Portugal. His performances against Netherlands, Czech Republic, Athletico Madrid, Levante, Barcelona... Were just unreal!
Ronaldo is simply the best doesn't matter what anyone says, his skill, his focus and most importantly his motivation to do well, cristiano isn't like any other player in the world and doesn't copy anyones playing style unlike messi who just another replica of maradona, ronaldo takes the game to another level ronaldo is #1 messi is #2 and no one is close to these players because they are like gods and ronaldo is god and messi is jesus one step down and that's what it is, ronaldo dominated 3 leagues and his second year with real won the league and many more trophies too come CRISTIANO RONALDO IS IMMORTAL AND that's THAT PEACE
CR7 HAS PROVEN TO THE HOLE WORLD THAT HE THE BEST NOT BY WINNING THE LEAGUE WITH DIFFERENT TEAMS BUT ALSO BEING ABLE TO ADAPT IN 2 MAJOR DIFFERENT LEAGUE IN THE WORLD THAT ENGLAND AND SPAIN WITH HIS UNIQUE STYL OF PLAYING FOOTBALL AND ALSO COMPARE THAT HE doesn't GET THE SERVICE THAT MESSI GET FROM THE LIKES OF XAVI AND INIESTA SOME TIMES HE HAVE TO STRUNGLE ON HIS OWN AND ALSO THAT HE IS NOT A STRIKER BUIT THE WAY HE SCORE GOALS YOU CAN COMPARE HIM WITH ANYBODY IN THE WORLD, AS MESSI I don't THINK HE THE BEST BECAUSE HE GROW UP IN BARCA HE NEVER PLAYED FOR ANY TEAM IN HE WORLD TO PROVE THAT HE IS THE BEST HE STATERD FROM BARCA AND WILL END AT5 BARCA SO you CAN SAY THAT PERSON IS THAT GOOD COMPARE TO A PERSON WHO PLAYED FOR 2 DIFFERENT TEAMS AND WON LAGUE WITH THEM AND ALSO BROKE THE RECORD THAT WAS LAST BROKEN IN 1976 ON HIS SECOND SEASON IN SPAIN AND ALSO WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR PORTUGAL LOOK AT THAT AND TELL ME THAT PERSON DOEST DESERVE TO BE THE BEST
Look I'm not voting for ronaldo because I like I'm voting because he has the right for it he has 10 times more strength, more stamina long lasting stamina! Plus he has very fast sprinting style which helps him a lot! @! His mental stress on football is very less and can tell where the defender is moving and has the ability to jumb 14.2 inch to grab the more than a professional nba player he even ins a very unique player because his body is shaped in such a way that when he goes for his famous knuckle shoot his other foot gets too much pressure which gives 30 kg on the foot! Which a normal footballer suffers can end his career so please vote for ronaldo because he deserves it and will always be the best till the end
Ronaldo has better physical and mental attributes than any other player on the planet. His efforts for Real Madrid last season were immense and he scored vital goals at vital times. Other players (Van Persie, Messi etc) were found wanting at key points in the season. It's time for people to drop the Messi comparisons and start to recognize the worlds greatest footballer... Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo is an inspiration to any young person out there who feels he has the talent to play at international and championship level. He is awesome on the pitch, he is very strong, versatile, can play in all different positions, when he is in the mood he can be like the Usain Bolt of football from one end of the pitch to the other in seconds! There is no-one to match him at the moment, he is the modern day George Best, Pele of soccer. He is down to earth, human but in an extraordinary way, in a league of his own for sure!
I think Ronaldo is the the best because of his style and quickness in the the game especially la liga tournaments he the the best in the world. And plus Missi lacks Ronaldo true power but still Messi is a good player and between them there always has to be respect. Also he kick with both of his feet and he barley works out on his free kicks the only time he really does that is when he is in the training ground with caccilas but remember Ronaldo is always a beast in the games he has been playing
Ronaldo can do it all! Messi may score more goals but look at the midfielders he's getting passes from and his goals counted for nothing! Ronaldo cannot only score goals but he can deke his way pasts opponents and take exceptional free kicks something messi really lacks in. He was undoubtfully the best player of the best team to ever play in La Liga he 100% deserves this years ballon d'or (plus his Euro 2012 campaign helps too)
Messi is the better overall player, but he did not play as well as Ronaldo did this year. It is a YEARLY award, not a CAREER award. So this argument should be backed up by titles and accomplishments for the player and teams THAT YEAR. It's also not a scoring title - that's what Golden Boots are for. Messi won that without a doubt. He did not win La Liga with Barca, no Champions League, and Argentina did nothing. Madrid won La Liga with 100 points, Portugal got to the semi-finals of Euro because of CR7, and Madrid got just as far as Barca in Champs League. By sole facts, this should be CR7's award this year. He just had a better year than Messi in terms of championships and team accomplishments led by CR7. Get over it Messi fans, he had an off year in terms of being an MVP and getting his team to the promise land. It's okay though, he won 3 in a row. He'll be fine and probably win next year
Cristiano Ronaldo has the speed where rarely found in other players. He can do well no matter which team he is in. I don't get it why people often compare him with Lionel Messi. I should admit that Lionel Messi is one of the world's greatest footballers but Cristiano Ronaldo is far better than him. I was impressed with his speed when I watched his videos. Plus, he has a lot more abilities like freekicks, dribbling skills, ability of using both feet to score goals..
Ronaldo has showed that he is better than messi he has won the super cup with real madrid. He has scored an awesome goal against cezh republic. And got there team to the semi finals. He has broke the record for the most goals in la liga for four years. He scores awesome free kicks. He is on the best team on the world. He won the golden ball. He won the best player of the english league. He is the best player in the world. He has more better skills than messi has. Messi was good before but he is not as good as he was 2 years ago. Thank you
He's a complete player, unlike Messi he is good in the air, amazing at taking free kicks, and we have all seen how important magic tricks and dribbling could be in Ronaldinho's case... As he aged the magics and the glue on his boots faded... Football is not just about dribbling. Its about being able to score from anywhere anytime under whatever the circumstances are, and Ronaldo is the man for the job because he does not lack anything is a player. Pace, dribbling, control in the air, free kicks, shot power, technique, finesse, physique, passing, experience of playing in the most competitive league in the world ( Premier League ) and being trained by simply the best managers in the world, Sir Alex and Jose Mourinho. Messi lacks many of those I mentioned. Ergo, Ronaldo comes out on top. The only reason he has been coming short of first place in the race for Ballon D'or in the past two years is his behavior, Managers and players are the ones that choose the prince of football every year and we all know how they feel about Ronaldo's behavior whereas Messi is this shy, innocent looking kid who just loves football.
I'm young, I know I'm only 12, but its not right to put other great Soccer players down just because you think you favorite is better! My personal favorite is Ronaldo but Messi is a great player too. I look up to them because one day its my dream to be in the Olympics. And I know it might not happen but it can. My jersey number in 7 in love of Ronaldo. Messi does have more ball control then Ronaldo though. But Ronaldo is faster. Not to brag but I have both of those things and one day ill use them and prove to everyone that they were wrong and you can follow your dreams. I know I'm young and this may not mean anything to you but it means something to me. Ronaldo and Messi FOREVER!
Ronaldo is player that is often scrutinized for his theatrics, but as far as I am aware isn't that part of the game of football. Name me on player that doesn't take part in such theatrics. Ronaldo should have won the FIFA Ballon d'Or award for many years consecutively and after FIFA's President Sebb Blatter in late October towards Ronaldo and clearly stating his preference for Messi, we now can start to speculate why Messi has won so many times. This is not to say Messi hasn't deserved it, he has and is most definitely one of the leading players in the world. But is he worthy of winning it four times in a row. Absolutely not. Ronaldo has proven himself over and over again, and just because he pulls a few tantrums and takes care of his appearances he is not worthy of such an award. Like Ronaldo says, its all in the facts, the statistics show that not even Messi can compare up too. Its a shame the FIFA Website has even gotten his statistics all wrong and dumb it down for him. FIFA is world organization, and an organization that it supposed to recognize talent, never to discriminate and demonstrate unity. What FIFA's President has done is shown the complete opposite. He is the face of the organization and what he has done is put such a global brand to shame. Everyone is entitled to have their own preferences, but as President, you are supposed to show support for all team players and most certainly not disrespect any of them. In my opinion, its time for Blatter to go. FIFA should not be represented by such a character. Ronaldo, I do hope you achieve all the greatness you deserve, and no award and disrespectful comments will ever be able to match what the facts show!
I think that Cristiano Ronaldo is the perfect player for the first top. Because ronaldo is having more skills than other players besides he can jump too far away like the NBA players and run faster than L. Messi even he make spectacular goals and he can make the game go to better. Lionel Messi is a good player but his magical skills are only in running with the ball but Cristiano is riding the ball and make extraordinary shots and he can play well against any team any player any where any time but L. Messi is so good only with little clubs but against the Kings like Real Madrid, AC Milan, Man UTD... He will be lost like he is not a member of the team. So that's why C. Ronaldo is better than Messi for a lot.
I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the best soccer player in the world Messi don't desrve to be top the only thing Messi is good at is dribbling and that's it Cristiano Ronaldo is good at skills, short range shots, long range shots, freekicks, penalty'sand dribbling at the super cup second leg Cristiano Ronaldo proved that he is better than Messi with that flick and still scoring could Messi do that no so people better put Cristiano Ronaldo top because he is truely better than Messi...
What can I say, after looking at those goals scored in this La Liga season by Cristiano Ronaldo. Especially the ones scored from nearly 25 meters! Anyone can just accept and admit that he is the best football player in the world than anyone else. Even Messi knows it for sure. No one, I mean no one other than Ronaldo stand a chance for the Ballon d'Or and the FIFA Best Football Player award.
Ronaldo is one of the fastest soccer players in the world and is ambidextous. It doesn't matter where he is on the feild he can shoot on the goal from either side and with extreme power, speed, and agility. Lionel might be more experienced but is not as athletic. Tests have shown that Ronaldo is the most observant and quick-minded players in the realm of football. He is also movable, he plays more than one posistion so he is much more valuable because of this. He has perfected his shooting to make it nearly impossible to block and still has many years left in his body to play football. This is why I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the best football player in the world.
I think cristiano ronaldo is the best ever :he is the faster player, he is the best penalty kicker free kick kicker and best tricker... And if I keep saying what he's good at ill never finish... And he has earned almost all the trophies that can possibly exist... Well... While the trophies are for singles or groups like real Madrid and Portugal... Messi is good to but cristiano ronaldo is better!
Ronaldo is the absolute player magnifacent, brilliant exicting good looks good body nice to look at.. The feet are the most amazing to watch, the speed and it is just everything about this guy that makes CRISTIANO RONALDO THE SCORING MACHINE AND HE IS AMAZING, UNREAL.. There will never be another, not in my life time... HE doesn't NEED ANYONE TO HELP HIM. He can do everything on his own.. THE TRICKS, WELL, ONE JUST STITS THERE WITH YOUR MOUTH OPEN. MESSI CAN ONLY SCORE ONE WAY, ronaldo can score in so many, many ways... BRILLIANT PLAYER
Cristiano Ronaldo had been working for his whole life, he had changed teams 3 times and he had to adpat tos all those new things. Now messi, he had all his life on barcelona, he did not have to adpat to nothing, and when he got in the professional team, men, he had the bests of the world with him, while he was there as they say "scoring and shining". Cristiano ronaldo was fighting to make his effort worth his success. He went to the nacional team and he almost made it, he did not have all the players messi did on argentina, but he kept on going strong. That's why, he have to be the best this year - XxninaxX10
He is still the best player in the world but I want to say something to you ronaldo I don't now your gonna read this message or not you belong to realmadrid its your home and freinds are still freinds all freinds fight but then they still love you and you still love them but ifyou leave real madrid then messi would take your place you must be proud of your self your still the best my name is ibrahim I live in turkey I have always dreamed of seeing you I love you vry much
Strengths: Ronaldo will take on any defender with searing pace, and mesmerising footwork to boot. His ability to beat a player and whip in crosses makes him a feared opponent. Add to that the way his free-kicks swerve with pace and power and this winger would be an asset to any team, past and present.
Weaknesses: On occasion, he goes to ground far too easily which attracts the ire of supporters and sometimes tries a trick when a simple pass would do.
Career high: Winning the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008, and subsequently being named FIFA's World Player of the Year.
Career low: Losing to Greece in the final of Euro 2004 on home turf. His tears were caught on camera for all to see.
Style: Fast, tricky, strong, a mesmeric dribbler.
Quotes: "I have nothing but praise for the boy. He is easily the best player in the world. He is better than Kaka and better than Messi. He is streets ahead of them all. His contribution as a goal threat is unbelievable. His stats are incredible. Strikes at goal, attempts on goal, raids into the penalty box, headers. It is all there. Absolutely astounding." Sir Alex Ferguson, July 2009.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a top quality player he is fantastic he can dribble the ball better than anyone else and he can run very fast and much more I think that Ronaldo really should be in 1 st because is messi a good player YES but is messi a good free kick taker NO whilst Ronaldo is I'm not saying Messi is bad just saying Ronaldo is better!
