    Point blank period Messi is the best. I would put Brazilian Ronaldo above them all though.

    No issue with Ronaldo, but I'm very wary of these types of stories. Neither this nor the golden shoe auction were picked up by mainstream press and I struggle to believe they’re accurate. They appear to originate from one source, and then be spread via Twitter.

    Both Ronaldo and Messi have some ridiculously fanatical fans who will go to great lengths to make one look good while disparaging the other. No issue with either one in my case, both the best players in my lifetime (with Messi top) and I’ve no doubt do their share of charity.

    Ronaldo the man is a fantastic guy by all accounts, I think a lot of people think folk chose Messi because of Ronaldo’s perceived personality traits mainly arrogance.

    I like his arrogance truth be told, but Messi is simply a greater footballer. No question about it.

    I always think that even if a celeb makes a donation and it's seen as a PR stunt, that in itself dosen't really matter, as long as people are able to benefit from the gesture, that's the important thing.

    Ronaldo is a * on the pitch because he's a born winner and you can tell it just gets the better of him and turns him into a win at all costs type of *. But he's clearly a good human being, messi still better tho.

    You’d probably enjoy Ronaldo’s movie. Shows an insight into his personality that’s not like how he’s often perceived.
