Ronaldo 2008. Whenever Ronaldo had the ball in that season, you felt it was always going to end up in the back of the net. Rooney's playing well but he's not giving off the same excitement level for me.

Why not wait until you've won a league title and a champions league with Rooney leading your team, before starting such comparisons?

Isn't that what Rooney's like in 2010?

I said i don't care who is better, since both are doing the job you dumb ****.

That is very much relevant to this thread..Deal with it

Bit of a hard question as I don't think Ronaldo would have been so prolific if Rooney wasn't there to help him.

I'd vote for Rooney, though, because I'm a biased cunt.

That makes no sense. It's like you are saying we won the league and CL with Ronaldo only. We dropped alot of points when rooney was not present in our lineup and Ronaldo was.

To answer this thread, Ronaldo was more magical more exciting BUT he had Rooney on his side. Rooney does not have a "Rooney" by his side. This is why i vote WR. Ronaldo did score some wonder goals though, goals not many players can pull off

No, because whenever he's in and around the box, you don't expect him to score, but test the keeper. Ronaldo was banging them in from anywhere he wanted. He's the best player I've ever seen at United, Rooney isn't top 3.

Ronaldo fired in 176 shots – the most in the Premier League.
he scored 31, and was at 2 more league goals than Rooney at the same time.

Wait till Rooney bangs in 40+ goals in a season. He's playing well but Ronaldo is one of the greatest players to pull on the shirt.

Both special players, for somewhat different reasons. Ronaldo is different to anyone, a magician... while Rooney is also amazing, however, what makes Waz "special" is that he is the heart of United and symbol of what this club is all about.

Ronaldo of 2007>both of them.

Rooney's been terrific this season, as was Ronnie in 2008 but their goalscoring exploits elevated some of the praise IMO, fantastic seasons but i've yet to see Ronaldo's season of 2007 be repeated by anyone outside of the great Ronaldinho shows from 03 to 06. Messi is in and around that area too.

I think Rooney could very well be the closest of all to Gaucho's magical seasons, the potential is there but he can't do it all on his own. Replace Scholesy and Giggsy properly in the next few years and Rooney would have a worthy supporting cast to make him the very best player in the world.

Ronaldinho of 2005 can't be compared to Rooney or Ronaldo at any level ..

Dinho is another category, man was like WTF! :proud:
