    Messi versus Ronaldo

    Just to come back to the Best v Messi comparison.

    I've been lucky enough to see both and fantastic players they are/were.

    Given that GB played his last really top games in 1973 and Messi plays in the 21st Century, I think the game (fitness levels etc) is so different that it is almost impossible to make a reasonable comparison.

    Having said that, they were both the top player in their era, IMHO (and with Pele, who was also fantastic, a contemporary of GB, that is praise indeed.)
