    Messi vs C.Ronaldo

    Peak Casemiro isn't better than peak Busquets, that's just nonsense. Also, Benzema of the 3-peat years wasn't better than 2010/11 Villa who carried Spain upfront to their World Cup triumph. Furthermore, Mascherano and Varane is a lot closer than you think. The latter is certainly more error prone.

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    I mean how often have we scored more than 2 goals in a match since he's been here? You can probably count the number of games that has happened in the last 3 seasons on less than 2 hands.

    Champions League 2020-21 #CeferinOut

    I rank the midfield duo of Modric & Kroos higher than what anyone else has. Definitely a historic partnership.

    Anyone who says Icardi would be a good fit for current Juve simply doesn't understand football.

    Barca did the same for Messi when he broke some club record.

    Juan Cuadrado

    That's interesting. Yeah, I always felt it was around the turn of the last decade. Most notably when players like Ozil, Juan Mata, Di Maria etc rose to the fore is when I saw assists come into fashion. And not too surprising to see the names with the most assists in Serie A.

    Juan Cuadrado

    I don’t think assists even really became a valuable stat until the 10’s. I’m pretty sure nobody mentioned assist totals when the likes of Ronaldinho, Kaka, Zidane etc played in the early to mid 2000s

    Federico Chiesa

    It’s not certain whether Mbappe will ever reach Neymar’s peak level never mind Ronaldo & Messi.

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Depends on who those great 'additions' are. There are less than a handful of players that can guarantee you a goal a game like he does. Even less that are ever-present and never injured like he is. His consistency is virtually unmatched. There's no guarantee whoever those additions could've been...

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Lol. Most of their fans are either utterly bitter that he left or would take him back in a heartbeat. Benzema aside, he's lightyears ahead of all of their attackers combined. Yeah Benzema started scoring more but their whole attack has regressed massively. They still have their stellar midfield...

    a supposedly more reliable source now reports it. But I still don’t see it as much more than paper talk unless he goes and plays for almost free.

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Madrid won’t sign him, it’s just paper talk. They let him go when he was 3 years younger so why would they re-sign him now on likely astronomical wages (that they weren’t willing to give him even back then) especially when they can get one of Halaand or Mbappe in the next 2 summers. Beyond...

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    I won’t put his performance the other night down to any decline because even in his prime CL years at Real Madrid, he had similar performances on rare occasions. In that CL campaign where he scored 2 goals against us at the Allianz (one of them that preposterous over-head kick) he was pretty...

    Federico Chiesa

    Yeah 22 is actually a favourite number of a few attacking players.

    Dejan Kulusevski

    He also lacks mullers natural in-game intelligence (one quality that stands out most for him imo). Muller always knows where to be and what kind of passes to make. His decision making on the pitch is always at least a 9/10...a skill that he seemingly always had. But I guess that can come with...
