Out of those 5 strikers you put down Rooney can rival any of them, maybe not with goal tallies but he is still a top class striker and definitely one of the best in the world.

...I class Messi as a striker, although a midfielder too. :p
If you put Messi in the list then you'd have to put Ronaldo in wouldn't you?

He is asking for out and out strikers here.
Its a tough one really but the following are the best 10 imo: (in no particular order)

Eto'o, Drogba, Ibrahimovich, Torres, Henry, van Nistelrooy, Villa, Aguero, Benzema and Klose.

Top 5 I reckon......

1. Drogba (when he is fit and firing)
2. Ibrahimovic
3. Torres
4. Eto'o
5. Henry/Nist/Benzema

Thats really top 7 lol, but I cant separate them now. Ill come back to it.

Villa
Torres
Ibrahimovic
Eto'o
Del Piero

A healthy David Trezeguet or Ruud makes this list too. And Totti is right behind Del Piero.

I'd say Messi is more of a striker then Ronaldo, mainly becuase of where the two
are played, 9 times out of ten Ronaldo is put on the left right wing, fair enough he
drifts, but Messi is often put in the "Rooney" role, or as a supporting wing forward
as such in a 3 pronged attack somewhat similar to Chelsea's formation...

why's everyone putting Henry in? i thought this thread was basically about the top 5 strikers in the world currently i.e 2008s best.

if thats not the case then (out of players still playing)

1) Ronaldo (brazilian)
2) Henry
3) Nistelrooy
4) Shevchenko
5) Raul

what's a strikers first job? goals.

He may be as good as or probably a better all round player than all of them, but he is not a better striker.

I think it shows, even on a Man Utd forum, some people (people whos opinion you can respect aswell) haven't even put Rooney in their top 10.
