Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by rasputinn(m): 10:09pm On Jul 29, 2010
Seriously,I think Arjen Robben is a more effective player(better) than Lio Messi for club and country
What do you guys think?

I did not know that they have started selling red string Thai marijuana in Nigeria.
Re: Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by rasputinn(m): 10:53pm On Jul 29, 2010
^^^
Messi is not a Nigerian,or were you referring to yourself
Messi is useless in any team where Xavi,Iniesta and co are not there to feed him the ball,but the same cannot be said of Robben

As recently as from Chelsea to Real and then on to Bayern,Arjen has been consistent;VERY CONSISTENT.

I dare say that the moment Messi leaves Barca for any other team,his shyte value will be exposed BIGTIME

O boy stop having fantasies about Messi and be objective
Re: Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by tkb417(m): 7:51am On Jul 30, 2010
he did well in PSV and sought a move to the premiership (landed in chelsea)

left chelsea after getting fraustrated for lack of 'plenty playing time'

was sold by Real cos he was considered surplus to requirements

did well for Bayern and country last season

Verdict: one season is not enuff to compare him with a soccer god like Messi

Messi on the other hand single handedly won U-20 for his argentine your team
was part of the olympic winning team
helped Barca to a UCL title
was the highest goal scorer in the world last season

is unfortunate to be a member of a cursed national team.
Messi can play in any other national team apart from Argentina - FACT!

Arjen Robben should be compared with Nani, Obertan shocked and Malouda
those are his mates grin grin grin

Re: Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by Ibime(m): 8:24am On Jul 30, 2010
Since Messi success is solely down to Xavi and Iniesta, I would expect Ibrahimovic to be scoring 100 goals a season from the same supply line. . . . Even Eto in his pomp never managed more than 36 goals. . . compare with Messi's 46 goals. . . and Messi isnt even an out-and-out striker.

Some peeps just get carried away with World Cup and start yarning opata anyhow. . . . thats only 7 games in a 60 game calendar. . . . and besides, Messi was still the best player for Argentina in the World Cup.

Robben should try playing matches with 3 players marking him all the time, lets see his quality.

What kind of thread is this sef?
Irrelevant discussion here.
Messi had a bad three weeks.But he had an excellent 9 months before that.Is three weeks enough to judge a player?

Are you sure that you actually watch football? Dont get me wrong Robben is pretty amazing but do you really watch both of them for club and country and come to the conclusion that Robben is a better more consistent player? really?

Robben would have made himself easily greater than Messi had he scored those 2 sitters he missed against Spain!

Even if he score those goals it wont make him greater than messi because we dont judge good players by scoring only.

Messi Messi!
They compare him with grate Pele
They compare him with Maradona
They compare him with Ronaldinho
They compare him with C ronaldo
They compare him with Kaka
They compare him with Roney
Now they compare him with everything.
Pls in my opinion,our own Mercy Akide Udoh(super falcon striker) is better than messi.

Re: Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by medjai(m): 5:54pm On Jul 31, 2010
quite frankly, Messi performed better than Robben at the world cup. Messi was only behind Asamoah Gyan with most shots in the world cup and he really forced the goal keepers to pull some great saves. Messi was a one man army. Its only unfortunate that he found himself in a team that just weren't it and he couldnt find the back of the net.
Robben, great player but Messi, Messi is a myth

So how comehe couldn't put even one past Vincent Enyeama??he couldn't even score a single goal at the world cup just because Xavi,Iniesta,Puyol,Pique were not in the Argentine team??
Re: Arjen Robben Is Better Than Lionel Messi by Brisingr(m): 2:44am On Aug 16, 2010
D fact dat he didn't score in d world cup doesn't mean robben is beta afterall almighty wayne rooney didn't score.Messi scores beta dan robben just bout edge robben on skillz and completely beta dan robben when it comes to fitness.
