Christiano Ronaldo - The Best Player On The Planet?

With Ronaldo scoring 27 goals this season so far, 19 in the league is an unbelievable feat for a midfielder. With outstanding performances week in wek out for ManU and recently putting in arguably the best free kick ever seen in premier league history, can we say Ronaldo has finally topped Kaka? Is he now truly the best player on the planet?

We all know the unpredictability of life. Ronaldo has started well this season, i hope he ends well. However, i hope he truly matures into the best in the world. For now, it seems to me that if an England based player would win the FIFA player of the year award it has to be him. No player in europe (where the major considerations are made) has been in the same vein of form. As per that free kick being the best as someone said , Highly disputable by me cause i have seen free kicks and have seen free kicks. i was highly disappointed by SAF's comments about that.

The major trumpeter in Ronaldo's cause has been SAF, and while i accept the fact that you have to urge your wards on, i think it is not too good to over hype them, we all saw how disappointed Ronny was st the last FIFA gala, not just to losing out to Kaka but being beaten to third place by Messi. i think that is what is urging him on this season. Come end of the 2007/2008 season though, i see a thin line between him and Adebayor for the PFA player of the year with Fabregas not too far behind. By the way Fabregas started this season in superb form too, his inconsistency in goal is just an indication of how Arsenal has improved over time ( they dont need him to score all the time although he still gets his goals when it matters). I am a UNITED FAN and i hope we still have domestic relevance in terms of titles at the end of the season but if Manchester united does not win the UCL this year and Portugal does not do well at the Euros, Ronaldo's form would count for nothing at the next FIFA gala.

'it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for an England based footballer to be FIFA player of the year ' believe me.

Men! Segun & Tosinadeda, abeg relax yourself. I am a Chelsea fan myself but I have to say that Ronaldo is the greatest player I have ever seen and I dey watch football properly since Senegal '92 . From the first day I saw him playing Portugal Under-21 before Man Utd signed him, I wanted to write mr Abramovich and beg him to sign Ronaldo for us.

Basically, Ronaldo is a one man wrecking machine. He is the only player that plays two positions at the same time. Right wing and striker. He is so fast coming off the wing that he makes up another striker. And he also defends as well. Righ back to his eighteen yard box. Messi and Kaka don't even cross the half way line because their clubs give them the freedom. Plus they can never score or assist like Ronaldo. Man Utd IS a one man team. Let them play any game without Ronaldo and see how they struggle.

I remember when Portugal lost to France in WC. According to WorldSoccer magazine, Ronaldo launched a one-man assault on France whilst his team mates were overawed by the opposition. Roma players even said they were begging Ronaldo to take it easy on them last season. My guy, if you don't know the truth, then know it now. Ronaldo is the G.O.A.T and time will prove it. Don't blame him for playing for a weak team like Portugal.

And Segun, how dare you call Cantona's name in comparison? Cantona is not respected outside England! Even Zola outshone him when he landed in 1997. Cantona used to shine when there no foreigners in England, before the English knew anything about tricks and skills and their whole style was long ball. Look, even George Best, Man Utd's greatest ever player said: "Many players have been called the new George Best, but only till Ronaldo was it a compliment to me.". And George Best died two years ago, even before Ronaldo started shining like this. Abeg Fashi, Ronaldo is the G.O.A.T. Pele and Maradonna better watch out!

But if you watch Newcastle, Derby County, Portsmouth and Fulham you would agree that Ronaldo is a big Arrow for the small games and never for the big ones

No doubt about it, this guy is pretty hot right now, but for him to be better than Kaka he has to lead his team to the champions league final like Kaka almost single handedly did and he also has to set the Euros on fire during the summer. However, having said all that, the guy would have won the award if only he didn't dissappear when his team needed him like the FA cup final and the 2nd leg semi final against AC Milan.

Its not sound to say Ronaldo just as it will is the best player to have graced the premiership, whatever happened to the Thiery of Henry's, the Eric of Cantona's. Ronaldo will have place in the all time list if he continues like this in the seasons to come. One even forgets to mention the combative and ever loved duo of Patrick Viera and Roy Keane, this two dominate most premiership XI all time list I've seen.

@ Tosinadeda,

You must be suffering from a brain tumor.

Ronaldo does not really play in a position where he can influence games like Scholes, Kaka or Fabregas.

He plays too wide to make serious impact in any game . . . .

READ THIS FROM YOUR MANAGER(ARSENE WENGER)

The Arsenal manager admits Ronaldo would get his vote for Footballer of the Year, based purely on the last 12 months up to now.

"I did not expect Ronaldo to score as many as he did because he plays on the wing," said Wenger.

"Someone asked me what is the difference between Ronaldo and Lionel Messi?

It is the goals. Messi is more of a dribbler in a very short space, but Ronaldo is good in the air, good on free-kicks, right foot, left foot. He has developed very well.

"Another quality Ronaldo has is he is healthy. He does not miss games. He has missed less games than [Wayne] Rooney and Messi in the last two years. He can take the kicks."

I HOPE THAT ENDS THIS DISCUSSION.

@ Dayokanu,

Platini is a donkey for spewing this trumpery.

Ronaldo lit up EURO 2004 four years ago so i don't see any reason why he won't have a good performance this time around.

I am backing him to have another outstanding tournament this summer.

Ma problem is with these idiots at FIFA/UEFA . . . . .

Ronaldo has to prove himself in EURO 2008 and reh reh reh.

George Weah won European Awards and FIFA awards and he never played in the WORLD CUP or even African Cup of Nations as at 1995.

Tell me . . . . . .how contradictory are the theories of getting this award if it's not political?

Platini To Ronaldo: Prove Yourself On The Big Stage

UEFA president and former French footballing legend Michel Platini has issued a challenge to Cristiano Ronaldo, saying the phenomenal winger must produce his unstoppable form on the grand stage of this summer's European Championships to be a truly great player,

@ Tosinadeda,

In the community of mental-handicaps, u are the chairman.

What a load of drivel and applesauce from a cretin . . . .

Ronaldo chickens out in big games my Bottom . . . . . .Is Ronaldo a striker?

Why compare someone playing in wide position to a support striker if u have any brains at all . . . . . . .

How many times has Figo, Seedorf or any other winger score this season . . . . . .

Same Ronaldo scored against AC Milan, Roma and fuckever last season.

He has 100% goal ratio in all competitions this season as a winger and u idiots keep saying he chickens out in big games.

How many WINGERS score in huge games? When was the last time Hleb, Rosicky or Walcott scored in any big game.

This is a midfielder that has broken a huge barrier by hitting his 19th league goal in January and yet u ignoramus keep saying he chickens out in games.

Jealousy and Envy has blinded u lots and a huge smoke of stupidity has beclouded your senses.

on the contrary, ure the dumbest. . .check the games between AC and Juve, Inter and Roma this season and pick Kaka out.

he was nowhere to be found.

You people should get ur records straight b4 u start spewing bollocks.

Ronaldo is the highest goal scorer in the EPL and even one of the highest in europe right now, thats if hes not even the highest and you people will say he hasnt done it in the big stage.

OK, how come hes got 5 goals in the UCL and the only player sharing that with him is Ibrahimovic. Or the UCL is not a big stage anymore?

schmuks!!!

@ ndubest,

It seems what u know is less than what u don't know.

AC MILAN, INTER MILAN and JUVENTUS . . . . .Why do u guys talk as if there are no shitty teams in Serie A and La Liga as well.

It beggars belief when people talk from their Bottom all the time to defend what is not . . . . .

How is Wigan different to Torino, Empoli or Cagliari?

In other words . . .It is fyne by Kaka to score against these teams but its wrong for Ronaldo to score against Wigan and Birmingham?

The way people think these days is appaling. Is Global warming affecting the human brain as well?

Technically, u are saying Serie A is better than the EPL and that to me is the most moronic statement anyone can spew in 2008.

Same Italian football, where the commentators have to scream so LOUD when there's a throw-in to make it exciting.

Backwards football like their tanks in the WORLD WAR. How many teams in the Serie A are still in the Champions league?

Everytime i am suffering insomnia i thank God for Italian footie, there is no sure fire quicker way to get to sleep than watching italian football.

At least in the English league sides don't have to pay to get results, well unless you are Arsenal of course.

Do everyone a favour by keeping your warped opinion to yourself. You spew more bunkum than Folahann.

@ segunpc,

Ma age has nuthing to do with this discussion, silly.

Name me any 22-year-old in the history of the Prem that has been able to take football to this level.

From being the most hated figure in the UK to the most admired player takes some hard work . . . . .

The media kept slating him and he kept his head down to let his football do the talking.

Y'all can say all u want but Henry, Cantona or Zola has nothing on this kid.

The only player in England that has the same efficiency on the left wing and the right wing.

U might have to thaw out the 2 brain-cells in ur cranium to understand why Ronaldo is the best player on the planet.

At the moment, Crisatano rules the world, but his winning the FIFA world player of the year award will depend on how well Portugal performs in Euro 2008.
