Who is your favourite player? ..why?... and if possible add YouTube highlight reel of that player. Mine is Ronaldo (prime Ronaldo, not the chunky version that came back after over two years out injured). The reason he is my favourite is because he remains the best striker I’ve ever seen. A major reason I got Sky Sports installed was to see him play when he signed for Barcelona. Every single game he delivered, not just goals but ridiculous moves. I rank Ronaldo as the greatest sportsman of his era, an era which included Michael Jordan. In his prime he was rapid, his finishing was clinical, but what stood out most was his footwork in one on one situations where he would execute moves to go past defenders or go around goalkeepers. His career was similar to Muhammad Ali in that they had two parts to their career, first half they were lightening quick, both then had two/three years of inactivity for different reasons, second half they were much slower but still achieved great things (Ronaldo winning 2002 World Cup where he was top goalscorer, Ali beating Foreman). I think he walks into an all time greatest XI alongside Pelé in attack.
