Messi the greatest ever? My a**e 21:58 - May 7 with 2090 viewsBloomBlue

He has it easy in the Spanish league where he gets loads of space he would never live with the pace of the prem, if he was the greatest ever he could play in any league.

With the Spanish teams winning world cups, European trophies and best player awards you think he has it easy? Joke.

He's scored 26 CL goals against the best English teams, vnearly double what any other player has managed. He went two of his team mates in on goal tonight and they fluffed their chances. He can't do it all on his own.

The ‘he’s never done it in the Prem’ argument makes no sense. Up until tonight he’s always shone against the top English sides in the Champions League so don’t know why people think he’s going to come unstuck having to face Lewis Dunk in a 1v1.

I don't agree but one reason Ronaldo will earn more respect in some quarters is that he's done it in three or four different leagues and countries.

His goal record against the top 6 in the Prem is excellent, see above. If he can do it against them your naive to think he'd be rubbish over here...

Messi is quite simply one of the best players ever in my view. Maybe the most complete. He is certainly up there in my lifetime with Cruyff, Pele, Best and Ronaldo (annoying cheating .....etc, but what a player). I suppose I should really include Maradona but I just can’t.

As someone who has seen Messi play in the flesh at the Nou Camp, both in European fixtures as well as La Liga, I can tell you that you are speaking a load of rubbish.

The guy is by far the best footballer I have seen play live in my lifetime, if he was as bad as you said he would, he wouldn't have scored as many Champions League goals as he has against English clubs.

For me he's better than Ronaldo, because Messi doesn't have the ego, is a better person off the pitch from all I've heard, he doesn't dive around like Ronaldo and isn't petulant.

He's also a much more complete player than Ronaldo. Not only has he got a better goals per game ratio but he's way ahead in assists and other stats like chances created, pass completion etc.

I didn't suggest anything of the sort.

I seem to remember his early record against English teams wasn't all that.

His early record? Are we talking about in his early 20s? We're living in today and the only players who have more goals against the top English clubs is Aguero and Vardy.

The 'other leagues' argument is a load of bobbins. You honestly think Messi would flop if he went to Juventus/ Manchester United?

The current Liverpool team is outstandingly world-class. The fact that they and Man City are 23 and 25 points clear at the top of a division as competitive as the Prem (containing also such big beasts as Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs) is indicative of their exceptional quality, mental and physical.

To be stopped cold by them is no real disgrace.

The OP said he's always shone against the English sides.

He wouldn't have the same class of teammates around him at Juve and definitely not at United, so would he flop? No. Would he be nowhere near his goals and assists for Barcelona? I reckon so.

Serie A is poor, Juve walk it every season. I'd expect Messi to take that league apart. The United of now aren't really comparable to the United that Ronaldo played for.
