Best ever? Joke thread, right?

He's not even the best player at the moment, his attitude stinks and he's not half the player he was last season.

Overpaid egomaniacs.
The beautiful game indeed.

He's apparently a soccer player so he most obviously isn't the best at anything...except maybe soccer, but that just makes him the best at soccer and no one cares about that. :P

#9 Posted by NikePortugal (4 posts) -

Well that "joke" is well on his way to winning all major awards in one year... so you can go ahead and eat your words now.

THE BEST!! 8)

#11 Posted by NikePortugal (4 posts) -

Well.. Eusebio was great  in his day as well I guess 8)

I'm not a fan of his attitude at times but I certainly think he's a great player.

However, I haven't always been a supporter of his, when he first joined United he used to wind me up so much. Never passing, getting around the defence but never crossing. Urgh.

Am I also the only one who actually thinks he's wank at free kicks? Sure he occassionally hits one sweet but, watch how many he wastes in a match. It's frightening that he controls every free kick United (and I would presume Portugal) get.

Good, yes.. Great.. Sure.. Best of all time?  Nope.

Someone neds to break christiano the cunts legs -hard

Maradonna.

Pele.

#17 Posted by NikePortugal (4 posts) -

Yeah actually for Portugal, Deco takes a lot of them for obvious reasons.. Simao likes to get a crack in too.. Petit if it's really far (and he's playing). Queresma sometimes takes some but he hasn't been the greatest lately.

#18 Edited by Dudacles (1442 posts) -

I like Christiano Ronaldo, but he'll never be the best until he manages to perform his best consistently. He played very well last season, but now he's in a dip once again. He's a fantastic player, but I'll only consider him one of the greatest of all time when he starts to perform his best at all times, and not just against some of the weaker English teams.

Last season yes, this season not so much, Del Piero is playing some outstanding football so far this season for his age, dedicate a post to him.

you're forgetting other great players, Eric Cantona, Ronaldo, George Best, Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, those are TRUE legends.

I lost respect for Zidane when he devolved into a Ram.

lmao

and to reply to the OP:

C. Ronaldo is a great soccer player. Besides the attitude of course. I don't think he's the best ever though.

one mistake does not erase a history of greatness and glory, what zizou did was wrong, non the less he's still a legend and one of the best football players in history.

The best player in the world now plays for Real Madrid.

#25 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

OI! DID YOU SEE THAT LUDACROUS DISPLAY LAST NIGHT? FOOTBALL IS GREAT!

#26 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

He sucks monkey nuts, and the fact that Madrid was stupid enough to pay 90 million for that shit makes me realize how ridiculous football has become these days.

#27 Posted by MattyFTM (14342 posts) -

He is one of the best players playing at the moment. But he is no where near the best player ever. I really really hate Christiano Ronaldo, because he could be one of the best players ever if he did 2 things. Firstly, he needs to put 100% effort in for the whole 90 minutes. Secondly, he needs to stop diving. When you look at some of the best players ever, they always played their best game, and never dived. Just look at this George Best goal:

  

He was fouled twice there, and carried on and scored a fantastic goal. And that isn't the best example of that happening to George Best, it was just one I found easily on youtube. If that happened to Ronald, he would have fallen over at the first opportunity he had. Ronaldo has the potential to be in the same league as George Best and others that are considered to be the best footballers ever, but his diving nature is stopping him from being in that league.

No he's not, and he's gonna suck balls at Madrid. Just like Beckham did before him. Leaving Manchester was his biggest mistake ever...

He's not even the best of this period. That's Messi.
