Maybe Ronaldo at his peak was better. of course Ronaldo at his peak was probably the best player in the last 15 years. I'd say Ronaldinho is better than Rivaldo, and has more of an overall impact on the game than Romario. He's single-handedly turned around the club! If Barca play at this level for a couple more years, its success will be attributed mostly to him, and so he's going to be on any all-time greats list. I'm the biggest Ronaldo fan. But I think he hurt his credentials as an alltime great player with his injuries and the Madridista claims of unwillingness to work and selfishness. He was spectacular at Barca and at Inter when he played, and both the 98 and 02 WCs, despite his collapse in the 98 final.
