    Who was better overall from the ages of 18-20 years old, and rate them in order?

    Compare them in the main attributes such as dribbling, speed, accelration, finishing. (Remember only from the age 18-20)

    And who played the best and scored the most goals for there club (PSV, PSG and Santos) and their National Team Brazil.

    Thanks

    definitely Ronaldo.

    I don`t think Ronaldinho produced anywhere near his top form at PSG.

    Ronaldo at 18-20 is going to win every time in every single category you posted. It is not even fair to the other two.

    Neymar is better than 18-19 year old Ronaldinho though. Ronaldinho show flash at that age but didn't blossom until his early 20's.

    How does Messi compare with Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and Neymar at 18-20 years old?

    Well, Messi made it into the top three players in Ballon d'Or votings before he turned 20, like Ronaldo - but unlike Ronaldinho and Neymar. By that time, he had cemented himself as an important part of Barca's core.

    1. Neymar

    3. Ronaldo

    As Kaka10725 said, it is not fair to the other two to compare them to Ronaldo. Between the ages of 16 and 21, Ronaldo is a strong candidate for best player of all time. His only competitor is Pele. Because he suffered so many injuries, he remained a good player but, he was no longer as dominant as he was in his earlier years. Consequently, his overall career grade went down a bit and that is the reason that he is not mentioned in the top two by many experts. Can you imagine if Ronaldo had won WC 98 and had not suffered more serious injuries? Surely, he would have dominated the soccer world for the next four years and would have won WC 2002 in even more dominant fashion. Maybe, Brazil would have also had a strong showing in 2006. Also, Ronaldo's last world cup would have been 2010. Wow! The Best Ever discussion would have been interesting.

    As for Ronaldinho, he simply was a genius with the ball. He did not get as much coverage as Neymar is enjoying right now. There were no youtube and social media like facebook and twitter then.
    Neymar is a very lucky fellow as he is extremely talented and due to the various media available nowadays, he can become a better student of the game by watching so many great players and incorporating their styles into his game. The best thing that ever happened to him was the thrashing of Santos by Barca in the recent club world cup. That experience will keep him focused and he will continue to work diligently in order to become the best player that he can possibly be. Already I'm seeing some improvements in his game this year. I never thought he was selfish but, he is becoming an even better team player. He is physically stronger. His technique (i.e heading, long range shots, dribbing) has improved as well. Playing in Brazil has helped as well because he is playing with confidence and he is getting plenty of opportunities to hone his skills. I think he will be ready to play in Europe and make a huge impact next year but, if he waits until the next world cup to make the move, I will understand.

    Izzy9,
    Do you agree with me that Neymar is much better than Gotze and every young player today?

    Because I created this poll thread called (Which Young Player Has The Most Potential) and Gotze has gotten alot of votes.
    If you want go and check out the thread in BigSoccer Polls and vote for Neymar :)

    I think that Neymar is the best Brazil player since Ronaldo and Ronaldinho.

    Agree with Kaka10725 and some others .. that not many "child prodigy" could have rivaled Ronaldo from 17-20 but Pele, and possibly Maradona, Cruijff and Messi
    Before turning 20, Ronaldo got ~150goals/150+games all together ... amazing - Only beaten by the KING with 250+goals in less than 250games !

    Neymar is better than Ronnie at same age and seems to be ready to to to Europe to rival Messi (xfingers)
