Ronaldinho won the world cup at 22 years old. He won every title, worls cup, balon d or, footballer of the year, champions leauge, spanish league, copa del rey, european super cup, everything. He is a mid fielder, not a striker like messi. He scored goals and creates goals. Why do u think eto'o was so deadly? Because of Ronaldinho's passes. Have u seen frank lampard or steven gerrard or Xavi or iniesta scoring 40 goals in one season? NO! They are midfielders. They provide passes. Ronaldinho was a midfielder, but a special one, he scores and he makes others score. Messi is a fantastic player. I will bot deny that. He is a deadly striker who can score from any angle. Take Xavi and Iniesta out of the midfield and see how many goals Messi will score a season. By the way, Ronaldinho is the one who brought Messi on the scene. The first goal Messi scored was from a Ronaldinho pass. Ronaldinho is the foundation of the glory that Barcelona has now.

Apart from Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, Lionel Messi has got no Competition in world football today, During Ronaldinho's era, too many players were at their peak and playing at an exciting and equal level, thus it was very difficult to evaluate just ronnie without critically looking at other players of that era.

Ronaldinho alll the way... he was way toooo talented..

in the era of ronaldinho, how many of us here were 'man u fans', 'arsenal fans', 'madrid fans'? then we were all united and loved good players. i bet that if ronaldinho were still a barca player today , all of you would not say anything good of him. why? simply because ure madrid fans, or arsenal fans or man u fans. messi is better than ronaldinho was. messi scores much much much more goals than ronaldinho did. in terms of mid field play, messi is equally as gifted as ronaldinho. he even has more assists than ronaldinho had. ronaldinho won the world cup because he had carlos, cafu, lucio, gilberto, rivaldo, kaka, ronaldo, juninho, denilson, edmilson, roque junior. so to say 'ronaldinho won the world cup' is a very dumb statement. some one says remove xavi and iniesta bla bla bla. messi shone in 2005 junior world cup when he took the world by storm. messi has the highest assists in barca for several seasons now. messi has scored hattricks and braces without xavi and iniesta playing. so how dumb can we get making such statements? alot of soccer pundits have called messi the greatest they have seen play the game. a lot. alot have compared him to maradona and pele. lets not play down his greatness simply because we are madrid or man u or arsenal fans.

haha. Well said. U really know how to talk poo. Probably u didn't watch the last world cup. How many assists did messi make? How many goals did he score? Scrape the cataract off ur eyes. Ronaldinho in his prime had no competition. Messi is the greatest today, but he is not far from ronaldo. Some are even saying that roaldo is a better player because he does most stuff on his own but messi has a lot of help. Check ur facts.

what the f*<k who the f*,k is this guy? in the last world cup, almost all in fact 90 percent of argentina's goals were as a result of messi's genius. i remember one particular incident against korea when messi took out 4 or 5 korean defenders only for his shot to rebound off the upright for higuain to tap-in. higuain scored 5 in the world cup but he wasnt even half as good as messiin the world cup. so if a player does not score a goal then he's a flop according to dadz. haha. messi's acievement for barcelona at 24 are astronomical; sorry to hurt you hommie, like it or not messi is being mentioned in the same phrases with pele and maradona nowadays; not ronaldinho, not ronal... oh sorry penaldo. i did not say that, it's all over your tv set and your internet. penaldo? does stuff on his own?? what u been smoking talk about individual moves and goals, penaldo does not get anywhere near messi. its not by taking 20 shots in each game from 5 yards, 10 yards, 20 yards 40 yards, 60 yards to score only one. it's about dribbling through 4 or 5 defenders consistently. and you know who.
Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by optimusprime2(m): 3:58am On Dec 07, 2012
I could'nt help posting a Comment even though this thread is old;
Ronaldinho VS Messi

I Critically observed both of them (the analysis was very easy since both of them played in the same team around 2008)& I Realized Ronaldinho, was one sick magician. No doubt Messi is awesome, but Ronaldinho mheeeeen... he made of football, what Shakespare made of poetry.

For crying out loud how would you guys compare Messi to a tactical Play maker who was one of the best in the trade?

Messi wey never even finish competition with CR7...
In Ronaldinho's era with the other sick playmakers that were there eg Totti, Riquelme, Recoba, Kaka etc he still clearly stood out undisputably.

Messi scores goals, but Ronaldinho scored goals that took breaths away(special goals-ask David Seaman & Oliver Khan).

Messi dribbles plainly, basically to evade defenders, but Ronaldinho's dribbles are tactical and strategic(like he has a dribble radar) every move has a motive basically to setup himself for another move or tee up another player(he dribbled with Rhythm).

Messi delivers to the crowd, but Dinho entertained the crowd while delivering.

A Ronaldinho set peice is more dangerous than a Messi set peice till tommorow.

Ronaldinho is freak'n both footed, Messi uses only his Left.

Ronaldinho is one of the most creative footballers that ever existed(he pulls out ideas in sticky situations), Messi is not that creative- his approach to offence is rather direct.

One of Ronaldinho's main assets is his technical ability to understand team formations and setup other players, but Messi is not that kind of Player.

Of course we all know Ronaldinho is a great Passer of the Ball- he makes an 80yard pass look so easy, I dont see Messi do that, Messi'd rather stick to his amazing dribble runs.

Please because irresponsibility killed Ronaldinho, doesnt mean you shouldnt give him his credit, when he was in form, he oozed out Magic in every move- it was truly a joy to watch him play.

Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by Dadz: 3:39pm On Dec 07, 2012
Exactly. I bet all of those who are saying that Messi is better, never evem watched a game with Ronaldinho. How dumb it is to say that Messi scores more than Ronaldinho? Get a brain transplant or clean the poo out of your head. Messi is a striker and Ronaldinho is a midfielder. Obviously Messi is gonna score more. Dumb fucks!
Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by homesteady(m): 6:04pm On Dec 07, 2012
my dear friends.....why the bruhaha over here,why the argument. Even dhino has said it,Messi is the best player the world has produced.He also said that he is happy that he gave the pass to Messi in which Messi scored his 1st professional goal.
Come on,Even Blatter nd Platini(d 2 superiors of football) call him the world best,so i wonder why toothless dogs(pls its nt an insult) like you guys say dhino is better....lwkmd
Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by Oahray: 12:03am On Dec 09, 2012
For me...

Skills: Ronaldinho (Only Okocha comes close)

Passes: Messi (these days, I wonder if he is better than Xavi and pirlo)

Teamwork: Messi (Dinho was a one-man player most of the time)

Goals: Messi (undisputed)

Assists: Messi (for those saying Messi is a striker that's why he scores more goals, how come he assists better than most midfielders and more than Dinho had even when Dinho had Eto'o, one of the best finishers of the game?)

Consistency: Messi (Ronaldinho didnt last)

Spotkicks: Ronaldinho (messi doesnt come close)

Fear factor: Messi (yes, more defenders mark messi in every game than dinho was)

Versatility: Ronaldinho (good with both feet)

Ronaldinho was a much more entertaining player...
Messi is more efficient.
The best player is the the most efficient... Else Okocha ought to have been world best at least once.
Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by Nobody: 5:27am On Dec 09, 2012
Let's not forget, Ronaldhino's best years were when he was playing along side Messi at Barca

Messi is a Better Player

Ronny was more fun to watch in his prime though.

Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by Dadz: 4:43pm On Dec 09, 2012
Ronaldinho's best years at Barca were in 2004-2005... Messi didn't break into the first team as yet.
Re: Do You Think Messi Is Better Than Ronaldinho? by homesteady(m): 11:12pm On Dec 09, 2012
Messi just broke a 40years old record 2day...thats more reason he is the best player..
I support that guy dat said he is more efficient.
Btw,has any game(PES,Fifa,wining 11) been able to copy Messi skills? They have copied all dhino nd cristi skills,bt not Messi.....dat is 2 say Messi is more creative

His best years, he played alongside Eto'o. Messi was still an injury prone teenage footballer then.

messi is his name. i started watching football because of dinho and became a barca fan. If each and every one of us is to put sentiment aside and say the truth, u will see that the answer is messi. My problem wt pple is that they don't watch barca matches yet they will rush to comment. comparing messi wt different names said it all.MESSICO86

Messi been mentioned in the same phrases with pele and maradona , then AFTER that the next question comes if he is better than ronaldinho? ronaldinho was mentioned with maradona and pele at his prime many times . If you wasn't there at the time that's not his fault. But still you think if its not enough ,may be there is a good reason cause he was always mentioned with not pele not maradona , with Zidane.. Pele says Neymar best Maradona said messi , They v been asked about Zidane , both answer was he is best of 3.
And 90 % goal was happened because of messi last world cup. ?? Wrong Information ,just like Higuain scored 4 not 5.... and 90% of goals came with messi magic then in 9 goals(90% of 10 goals) at least messi must had 6 5 or at least 4 assists , Again wrong ...just one for him. 1 for veron 1 millito 1 burdisso 1 aguero 1 maria . 6 of them happened without messi , so if you are a true football fan not because of some individual player fan like messi or the other one , you can understand the game is not played by one man . Argentina is a strong team with or without messi ,same goes for barca also the madrid and the other gay.

HAHAHAHA....so we are judging player by video game moves , U are one of a kind sir. In games by animation you can crate any moves which isnt even possible (like any fantasy soccer game) and cant create messi 's move. Salute to you.

maybe its other way around , FIFA and Pes guys dose not interested to create messi's moves cause he never did one. Messi hardly dose skills he is a dribble kind a guy , and games are more tactical now a days not one man show , thats why skills like rabona fake are very hard to see. Try to watch real football .... Kids these days ......

I can't forget Ronaldinho's performance in the two games against AC Milan. He made one of the fiercest defensive midfielders Gattuso look ordinary and got Gattuso subbed in both games.

Dinho clearly beats Messi. He created magical moments when he graced the pitch.

Messi is breaking scoring records. He has never been a classy all round player. No one can argue if Messi isn't one of the greatest finisher but he hasn't been artistic outside Barca.

Even last year Ronaldinho has been magical with Miniero. Leading them to the Copa Libertadores title.
