Manchester United sucks. Cristiano Ronaldo is a crybaby and a ball hog.

Barcelona has won many cups before too. Barcelona happened to have one of the best players in the world. I mean the best player in the world. Ronaldinho

the club's major achievements include:
http://www.sportspundit.com...
* 18 La Liga
* 24 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) (record)
* 7 Supercopa de Espana
* 2 European Cup/UEFA Champions League
* 4 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup
* 2 European Super Cup
I dont know if my opponent is lying about the number of trophies. I have evidence to back my argument up. My opponent makes no point about the number of trophies they won because that doesn't matter. What matters is who has the better team.

>I thank my opponent for his response.

>I will take the "major achievements" as a tie. They came from the Manchester United website.

>Next, my opponent claims to have the best player in the world in Ronaldinho. Firstly, Ronaldinho doesn't even lay for Barcelona, he plays for AC Milan (http://www.acmilan.com...). Next, Ronaldinho's production has dropped off recently. He went from 21 goals to 8.

As far as the best players go, Manchester United has three of the top strikers in the game: Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, and Carlos Tevez. Additionally, they have a player who scored 42 goals last year in addition to winning the Ballon D'or (http://news.bbc.co.uk...): Cristiano Ronaldo.

>My opponent did not address the worth of Manchester United ($) or their history. He therefore drops them.

>I hope this is an easy vote. My opponent did not beat anything I said, and di not even know who played for his team. Please vote CON. Thank you.
