In his prime he was at least equal to all of them.

thats what bothers me about ronaldinho and ronaldo. to think as incredible as they were, they could have been so much greater

Ronaldo if not plagued by injury and health problems. And ronaldinho if he had not lost focus and lost himself

Those Ronaldo knee injuries robbed us from something incredibly special.

imagine if Ronaldinho had stayed at the top, a front trio of him and Messi on the wings with the ability to cut inside and create/score, burn players with tricks and/or sheer blistering pace and Eto'o in the middle, who would've scored even more goals than he already did. Would've been scary.

If only.

And I cringe when I read comments that stupid. He was unplayable for a 3 year spell. As good as Messi and Ronaldo for a time, but without the added consistency over a longer period. I still remember when he absolutely destroyed Cech in the Champions League. Cech may have been the best goalkeeper in the world at the time, and Ronaldinho just left him standing completely helpless, wondering how the hell the ball went in the net. Astonishing player a few years ago.


Steve the memories alone

Injuries ruined Kaka. Knee injuries are a killer.

Kaka in the 06-07 Champions League was ridiculous.

Dammit Ronnie being overrated is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard on these forums. Sure he got lazy, fat and lost all of his work ethic which was one of the most depressing things I've ever seen in football. But fuuuuu he pretty much single handedly saved the sinking ship that was FCB in his prime. We would not be seeing the same Barcelona today if Ronnie hadn't elevated the club the way he did.

THE GOAT.

Impeccable player, wish he didn't fall off like he did.

Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.

Re: 2012-2013 Discussion Thread for La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, etc

It's hard to say if Ronaldinho is overrated or not. The thing is that while he was a wonderful player, he looks even better on youtube, and that would be where the the whole 'Pele + Zidane+ Maradona = Ronaldinho' comes from. I also think he's underrated by some due to fall from grace coming right at the same time as Messi's rise. Which can give the impression that Ronaldinho perhaps wasn't that good after all, because look what this little Argentine is doing in his place, etc. It reminds me a bit of how Romario tends to be underrated these days because Ronaldo essentially went everywhere he did, and did better. The fact is though that no one comes off well when compared to Messi, and it was unfortunate for Ronaldinho that he has always suffered from those comparisons.

Overall I'd say Ronaldinho is probably in the top 5 players of the 00s. I can't be bothered making a list, but given he was the best player in the World for a good 2 year period of the decade, I'm happy saying he's in the top 5, probably high in that list too.
