    I haven't really seen R. Baggio play much because back in his time I wasn't really watching players themselves too closely, I just watched games. I know Messi is amazing and for me the best attacking player in our generation at the moment, but was Roberto Baggio better? People on here say he was amazing and one of the best as well. If you have watched both, please tell me what you think?

    Ive seen way more of Messi so it's not fair on me to comment. However at International level at THIS STAGE there is no comparison. Baggio 3 world cups, 9 goals. Messi has scored 5 in 3 world cups and last world cup did nothing in the knockout stages. Scored his goals against Bosnia, Iran and Nigeria in the group:confused:
    Afghan-Juventus repped this.

    There will probably never be another player liek either of these two.

    Messi's speed and close dribbling
    Baggio's balance and astonishing vision on the ball

    who knows.....
    throw in cruyff, zidane and maradona and there are the 5 best palyers I've ever seen.

    Baggio? Obviously a legendary player of a very high caliber, one of era-defining players. For a couple of years, he was among the very best players of that time.

    But bias (to both directions) aside, he isn't on Messi level.

    Here is a video I published yesterday, of Roberto Baggio in his 1992/1993 days -- it's not the *ultimate* most comprehensive video about him, but I think it's the most complete video of him in his 92/93 days,

    Messi is the better player. Baggio is the more creative player

    what a pos of a poll! If you want to make an honest poll you pick contenders of appropriate quality, otherwise you're just one of messi's ass-lickers
