Definitely tough on Dortmund. 2 great games between Monaco and Dortmund, either of which would have made a great final. I’d love to see Monaco go and win the thing now but I personally think this is Juve’s year. They’ve been knocking on the door now for a few years but the way they took Barca apart showed me they have progressed even further. I don’t want to see Real Madrid win it so any of the others are fine by me but I’ll stick my neck out and go for Juve. How about you?
It’s almost impossible to compare players from different eras I feel. The only thing you can really compare is their impact & influence on their respective eras. Messi and Ronaldo are clearly way ahead of the rest currently and you’d have to argue that their influence and impact on the game today is probably as big, if not bigger, than those of Pele or Maradona. For me, Messi is on another planet and easily the best player of his generation.
For me Messi is the most naturally talented player we’re probably ever likely to see. Ronaldo is an example of the combination of ridiculously hard work and hunger which most humans just don’t possess. If I had to choose one, I’d probably opt for Messi
