It's Ronaldinho, Mr.Wenger

It was in the quarter-final clash against England in the last world cup that I realized how good Ronaldinho was. He was then the young pretender, much talked and written about, but the world had not yet seen him in all his splendour. After several seasons showcasing his potential for PSG, Ronaldinho finally became the irresistible force he was expected to, last season. Entirely coincidentally, Barca's fortunes underwent a transformation, though it must be said Frank Rijkaard had something to do with it as well. Barca were quite unlucky going out the way they did in the Champions League, losing by a whisker to Chelsea. But for many, they were the best in the field and there was no doubting who the best in Europe and possibly the world, was. Now vindication, nay confirmation, has come from all quarters. Watching Ronaldinho, Messi and company tear apart Real at the Bernabaeu was an awe inspiring sight, even as the football itself was sublime, quite the embodiment of the beautiful game. As much as I admire Thierry Henry, I have to say I disagree with Arsene Wenger's assessment of him as the world's best. Right now, no one - not even Zidane (who's obviously slowed down) - is better than Ronaldinho. - NK
