Lionel Messi

Post by Cjay » Wed Jun 20, 2018 9:48 am

Since we got a Ronaldo thread seems wrong to not have one for his great rival.

My praise for Ronnie as an athlete aside, Messi is the one i voted for as The Greatest of All time.

Think he is a genius, he doesnt dive, he is graceful, just a joy to watch.

Most people seem to prefer Messi, most polls have him winning.

Could post a video of his highlights, but think this one sums him up best.



Did you spot him meeting Ronaldo's son?

GOAT is Cruyff, then Pele. After that it's perm 1 from about 20

Nobody will ever convince me that Billy Bremner wasn't the greatest of all time. Heart of a lion that nobody, before or since, could match.

Flip a coin, Cruyff or Pele for true GOAT. If I were building a team I would take Messi ahead of Ronaldo; he has a more well-rounded, complete game in my humble opinion.

Messi's goal against Nigeria was one for the ages.

I think Messi is getting a little better than he was at influencing his teams game plan, plus he actually scored a goal with his right foot.

That is, imho, more noteworthy than you may think.
