Alright, let's look past the point that Messi has never proven himself at another club, in a different league, with a different language, etc.
and let's make this "fair":
Ronaldo (Portugal):
apps 60, goals 21. Ratio: 0.35

Ronaldo being 3 years older makes no difference really. Both have been part of their national teams for a similair period of time.
ANd BTW, this whole thing was simply to illustrate the point of Ronaldo having proved himself in more than 1 jersey. A point which is, to many people, simply a given fact.
"To many people a given fact"? Lol. It's a fact for everyone. For me included. I don't see how it makes Ronaldo more complete than Messi by any means. If he was good at adapting he would've had no trouble going into Clasico matches by now but he still struggles. Poor lad.

Basically, he said:
1. Messi is amazing, but he does play for what is basically an unstoppable team.
2. Ronaldo is more complete and better in the air.
3. Ronaldo plays for RM, where it is more complicated to play, and thus more difficult to perform.
4. He's also proved himself in England.
5. In 2011, the calendar year Ronaldo's stats are amazing (more goals scored than Messi).

And he has a point there.
Ronaldo is not more complete than Messi. All-around he may have more physical attributes compared to Messi but he's a mentally weak player compared to Messi, who has a much better footballing brain too. And what Messi lacks in the all-around physical department, he compensates for by being unique when it comes to agility, balance, acceleration and close-control.

Callejon is a much better bet for Ballon D'or anyway.
By complete, he basically meant that Ronaldo is two-footed and can head the ball
Ronaldo two-footed? LOL I'd trust more in Messi's ability to use both feet.

:facepalm: good morning Cryuff
Have you ever seen Ronaldo make a proper cross with his left foot? No you haven't. Why? The answer is simple. He is NOT two footed.

And does this make a player fit the bill of being two-footed?

If it does then that makes Messi a player who is good in air because he scored a header against United in a Champions League final.

Someone who is a proper two-footed player can use both feet successfully consistently. Not once, twice or thrice in a decade.

CR on the other hand has been poor for Portugal for as long as I can remember with his selfish fits on the pitch and being close to anonymous while being outperformed by Nani game after game. His play for Portugal is a shadow of what it is at RM

No. He just excels, like Messi, at certain attributes that Ronaldo doesn't. Of course not at the same levels as Messi by any means.

Callejon, for example, has a higher passing percentage than Ronaldo, commits less fouls, draws more fouls (see last season where he was fouled more than Messi and Ronaldo), has a better defensive work-rate and is really great at running deep, beating the offside rule. Not to mention he's a very clinical player who doesn't need a lot of chances to convert them into goals.

I like him especially because he plays for the crest and the Madridismo shines from him every time he plays. He's our youth product and a very good one at that.

messi is clearly the better player but he is clearly not tw0- footed.. you may have some personal problem with ronaldo or something but you cant deny that he is quite good with his left foot.. and he is more complete than messi in a way .. messi keeps it simple but whatever he does he does it the best.

I like how you marginalized the tremendous amount of work he puts in for the club by saying he just "beats the offside trap and grabs a goal".

For me he is already a top player. He is successfully competing with our usual starters for a spot in the starting eleven, he does what is required of him whenever he plays and he's part of one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Mourinho made a perfect choice when he allowed Callejon to take on the challenge of being a player for us.

At the end of the day... Ronaldo has taken Portugal to a Euro final and a 4th place finish in the World Cup. All after the "golden generation" was past it.

Messi, on the other hand, has done nothing with an Argentinian team with possibly the most gifted set of attackers that ANY team has ever seen.

You may say that Messi is consistently the best player, while Ronaldo seems to be anonymous, but, just like the end result is what really matters in terms of the Barca v Madrid argument, the same holds for National team representation.
Even Argentinians hate Messi, because he just doesn't perform.

I like how you make him sound like a better player because he runs more than Ronaldo lol. Just a heads up Di Maria runs twice as much as Callejon and is 3 times the player. You must first dream of Mou benching DI Maria before benching Ronaldo lol.

Now, I am a huge fan of Callejon. And frankly, I'm a much bigger fan of his than of Ronaldo's... but Callejon will never be of the same quality as Ronaldo. I do think he'll be awesome, given time and regular minutes. But he'll never be on Ronaldo's level.
Nothing to be ashamed of either.
