In and out of the box........packing!!!!
Apart from Ronaldo name a better player than Messi during the last 20 years.
That's of no relevance. Messi is continually rated as the world's best player yet when his national side sell him short he can't handle the pressure unlike Ronaldo which would suggest that he is a tad overrated. It doesn't disparage his skill or ability on the ball just, in my eyes, doesn't make him the world's best player. There is little to chose between both on the pitch but that significant bit of leadership that Ronaldo has makes him better.

I don't think opinion is as clear cut as you make out, plenty of people think Ronaldo is a better player, me included as I said earler.

That bloke Chambers who plays for Arsenal is cr+p, but I guess he's not rated anyway.
Sissoko (Spurs). They luv him at Spurs but he's cr+p, too
Jesse Lingard. Guaranteed to miss chances and do the wrong thing.
Barkley. Already mentioned.

Antoine Griezmann is one. Barely produces anything these days. Delle Alli is another as is Jack Grealish.

Also Iscalad mentions Danny Mayor of Argyle but that striker they had up top on Saturday was amongst the worst i've seen. Zak Rudden. May as well have had a 5 year old on the pitch.

Richarlison at Everton, scored a few goals but has never really impressed me when I've seen him on the box.
