Topic: Ronaldinho

Marvellous player, a much better version of Rod Marsh. Nice quote:

The Brazilian legend Tostão claimed: “Ronaldinho has the dribbling skills of Rivelino, the vision of Gerson, the spirit and happiness of Garrincha, the pace, skill and power of Jairzinho and Ronaldo, the technical ability of Zico and the creativity of Romário.” Above all he had one, very special ability: he made you smile.

Re: Ronaldinho

The problem with players like Ronaldinho and Gazza (yes,  I rate Gazza at the same level - Maradona a level above obviously) is that they make it all look so bloody easy

You even think about try and doing some of the stuff they do and you fall flat on your face

He still looks like Goofy though

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Re: Ronaldinho

What would he be worth in today's (obscene) transfer market? Or Marsh, Best, for that matter? Or Gazza, Hoddle?

Re: Ronaldinho

He'd have been even better if he hadn't had to play in those big baggy jumpers.

His attitude as well, like it is just a game, supposed to be entertainment.
