CR relies on speed and Messi is slow but skillful and control, and using his brain well too.

I like Kenny Daglish.....he had scored many crazy goals. He's a brilliant scorers...simply simple goals and crazy way to score. He's a legend goal scorer.

Ronaldo is more technical and quicker, but Messi is faster and has better ball control.

C Ronaldo scored 40 goals in 38 matches La Liga season. More than a goal per match.
He is actually wing, not forward but this year he scores more than any forward player.
But the best player is decided by not only goal scoring.(for the sake of goalkeepers?)
C Ronaldo is genius and so is Messi.
But they need to win a title with their national teams respectively.

I am a Barcelona fan and I like Messi very much.
I feel like if he is my kinship.
I also appreciate C Ronaldo's ability too.

I even learn Spanish because of loving Spanish football(La Liga and Spanish national team) and Spanish songs.

Both insanely good players, for similar and different reasons. Obviously with both of them you're going to get a lot of goals.

I think Messi offers more trickery with the ball. His close control is amazing, and he can just glide through a defence like it isn't there. Ronaldo is more of a power player, using his height and strength to get past players, as well as millions and millions of stepovers.

In the end it really comes down to which player I'd rather have in my team. I might be slightly biased here, as he was in my team, but I'm going to go for Ronaldo. I'm more of a fan of the tall powerful winger, and I think Sir Alex Ferguson is too. If you look at the likes of Nani, Obertan, Bebe, and to a certain extent Welbeck/Macheda, they all have that same muscular structure. Sadly Obertan and Bebe don't have anything close to the ability.
