Messi still on overall top. Both of them will surely pass Raul soon as well. It's hard to separate these two lads!

Cristiano Ronaldo....there is no adjective that hasn't been used to describe this guy.

I can think of a few silly abjectives that have never been used before.

Both Messi and Ronaldo are simply on another level. We are so lucky to get to see them! It's natural to compare the two best players but what I don't like is when either set of fans disparage the opposite player- if you think Messi is the best, fair enough but you don't have to call Ronaldo 'Cristina' etc, and if you think Ronaldo is the best you don't have to say 'Messi is nothing without Xavi and Iniesta'

Incredibly lucky to have both Ronaldo and Messi playing at the same time, although I do think the Ballon Dor awards have been a bit unfair to Ronaldo so I hope he keeps up current form.
