i have read from most of your post that you are a big CR7 fan its hard not to be with the form he is in
but that does not mean that everything he does is perfect
if your were a beginner, R9 and ronaldinho's stepovers are the perfect examples to follow... simply because they have the closest to perfect technique
ronaldo is no doubt brilliant at stepovers very quick and great technique
R9 and R10 on the other hand beats the defenders (leaves them running the wrong way) by selling the move so well
are not as fast (but still quick)
are not as many (but still skillful)
i completely accept that ronaldo is utterly devastating with his stepovers
but i completely disagree with this
then u will see how devastatingly good ronaldo is when his is more direct, he jus prefers to freestyle alot aswel which makes him alot more entertaining.
you cannot see past you biased view, if you think that Cristiano is more entertaining than either of the brazillians... then how can you expect anyone to beleive that his stepovers are the best, its just you saying what you want to hear
Ronaldinho was possibly the most entertaining player to ever grace the game... everything he did was simply jaw dropping, he owned the whole world for 2 years... he was loved by everyone, because he was the symbol of what the game means: skill and joy, he was the kid of the sport who did things for fun not for glory... and if you followed football in his prime not cr7s you would love him to
Ronaldo was world player of the year 3 times and any person who follows football understands that this man would have been up there with pele and maradona if it wasn't for injury (and hes pretty close as it is)
CR7 has brought great skill, great thrill... but he is over paid, selfish and spoilt... he is nothing more than a greedy prat... representing all things bad about football, money lust, over indulgence and arrogance
i absolutly love his abilites on the playing field... i think he is an extraordinary talent, right now he is the best in the world... no one was even close to challenging him (we saw plenty of players flop this season ronaldinho, henry, kaka) but no man, he is not and never will be as entertaining as ronaldo or ronaldinho...
when it comes to stepovers
for Cristiano it takes 17 to get a crowd to stop booing
for Ronaldino it takes 1 to get a crowd to start screaming
and just because you love everything he does, does not mean that someone else in the world can't do it better
Cryuff, Pele, Maradona and Zico
were as good if not better than best at dribbling
i am not trying to shame you, but merely try to get you to look past you favortism that so many people have today, so many people think that:
"ronaldo is a god"
the real thing is:
"ronaldo thinks hes god"
and you seen yourself he was a massive flop in big games this season. which should never happen to a truly great player.
he is irresistible as a player right now, but he is a nobody compared to most greats until he sorts out his mentality... which doesn look like it is gonna happen
bottom line is:
the brazillians stepovers are better because they have the best technique
the ronaldo stepovers are savage but not as good a style to start learning from
