    That's if the right pass if found...

    Considering Real have scored more than Barca over 37 games this season, it's difficult to argue that Real haven't been more productive despite much less possession over the season.

    Stats hardly ever teall us who is the better player.
    We have watched them both perform and Messi has been best footballer this season as well.

    Not many people that have the composure/confidence that he does :(

    So lethal in the air too.

    He was a world class player for us, absolutely brilliant. He instills fear in opponent players. Something this team misses.

    It would be something if Ronaldo returns one day. I would love it.

    That's your opinion. Ronaldo has been much better than Messi this season.

    Much better? How the feck can you be much better than a player who has scored 72 goals and got over 30 assists?

    Are trophies won by the team they play in the only condition for you? Has Altintop had a better season than Alves?

    The same way that a lot of people claim Messi was much better than the player who broke the La Liga all time scoring record last season.

    The fact is Ronaldo made the difference in the big games this season, Messi bottled the 3 biggest games in a row.

    Never mind "better", he is saying "much better this season".Cal? why is it only you that seem to believe that ? Why are you so lonely on this opinion that Ronaldo's been better this season ?

    How has he been much better than Messi? He's been incredible, yes, but Messi has been better and has been simply phenomenal. Please enlighten me though.

    How do you translate that quote into "Ronaldo has been much better than Messi" ? You're a weirdo of the highest order

    We don't have to agree with everything Charlton says that because he's a club legend.

    I believe last season the argument was goals are most important thing in football because they win games. So whats changed this season? :lol:

    Worth remembering there were TWO league meetings this season. Dare I remind him of how the two performed in the first one in Madrid?

    Just a top top guy can't help but love him. Best player I've seen live.

    In the big games? You mean against Barcelona at Camp Nou? The only big game in which Ronaldo made the difference.

    I hope he stays at Madrid for a few more years, because if he leaves, chances are the asking fee will be too much for us and I wouldn't want him winding up at any of the alternatives unless its some place like PSG or Italy.

    Apparantly in the full interview, he mentions that united is still in his heart and that despite city having a good team, he thinks we'll be kings of england. I miss him.

    Ronaldo: Messi makes me better

    Cristiano Ronaldo gets tired of the comparisons between him and Lionel Messi but believes the pair push each other to keep improving.

    Since Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid in 2009, his goals battle with Barcelona forward Messi has captured the imagination in the Primera Division and around the world

    In the recently-completed season Ronaldo hit a remarkable 46 goals in 38 appearances, but was bested as Messi struck a scarcely believable 50 goals in 37 matches.

    The Portuguese believes it is futile to debate which player is better, but is inspired by his opposite number's high standards

    "Sometimes it makes me tired...for him too because they compare us together all the time," he told CNN World Sport.

    "You cannot compare a Ferrari with a Porsche because it's a different engine. You cannot compare them.

    "He does the best things for Barcelona, I do the best things for Madrid, so the number (of goals)...everyone says 'it's incredible'. For him and for me because we beat our own records, so it's amazing.

    "I think we push each other sometimes in the competition, this is why the competition is so high. This is why Madrid and Barcelona are the best teams in the world because everyone pushes each other."

    Ronaldo also spoke about his first La Liga title, which Madrid secured with a 100-point haul.

    He was clearly delighted to usurp Barca but conceded it would be tough to enjoy such a successful season again.

    "My high point is to win the title here in Madrid," he said.

    "It was my first time, so I was so happy because it's my best moment here in Madrid, the most important trophy. In terms of individual, it was great for me, the goals that I scored, to break my own record...to do 100 points in the Spanish league, which is a record too.

    "It's phenomenal. I think it's hard to have a better year than this one. For me this is the most difficult league in the world. To compete with Barcelona, as everyone knows is very complicated and we beat them."

    Ronaldo also told Sky Sports News he was disappointed to see former club Manchester United lose their Barclays Premier League crown to neighbours Manchester City - and not just because it cost him money.

    "I saw a few days ago (City scored) two goals in the last minute, 91 and 93. I had a bet that Manchester United would win the league but I lost," he said.

    "I feel very disappointed because United is still in my heart.

    "City have a fantastic team now, but I think Manchester (United) will carry on being king of England in my opinion."

    Turning to his own future, Ronaldo declared himself happy at the Bernabeu but declined to make any long-term predictions.

    "The future? Nobody knows. (But) I feel very happy here. It's a great club, fantastic fans...it's great.

    "In one year or two you never know. A man's head is always complicated."

    Same with Cantona too. And Keane. And Beckham.

    Gayers.

    Keane gets nothing but stick (deserved too, to be fair) on here a lot of the time despite giving his best years to United. Cantona is a club legend. Not arsed about Beckham personally, but regardless, he doesn't get anywhere near the level of man love Ronaldo does.

    Yet Ronaldo left us for one of the most cuntish clubs in world sport. He's gone three years now, I reckon it's time for us to move on.

    Either that, or most posting in this thread are kids. I refuse to believe an adult football fan would still be swooning over our best player who fecked off elsewhere.

    Believe it. I'm 31 and I'd take him back to United in a heartbeat and I'd replace nearly any member of the squad with him, why? Because along with Messi, he is head and shoulders above any other player on the planet.

    Also, his last years here were incredible and he played a major part in the success we had around that time period. When you've had a WPOTY at your club, you don't forget him easily.
