Why not? He's not 50 years old. Other people can do it, now he must work during the summer to get in shape. He did good for us these 6 months, but next season he must get in shape.

Who are these "other people"? Name one player who has improved (physically) after injuries and age.

Also, how fucking thin do you want the guy? If he is a fucking twig then he is going to get pushed around like a little bitch upfront. You need to learn logic my friend, and stop supporting anorexia.

LOL @ anorexia
i personally do not want him as thin as inzaghi ( ) it would definately not suit him,....and he doesnt need to look like a anorexic bitch but just go from FLAB to FAB lol
replace the fat and huge stomach with abs

in the pic above, he looks pretty good imo, even the abs..

Well I think fat Ron is far better than the combine effort of Inzaghi, Gila, and Oli in this season. So I think Is okie to be fat.

Maradona is also fat and yet he is rated as the world best footballer

I'm not saying he plays bad, but why settle for a player playing at 80% of his abilities when he could play at 100%

I doubt Ronaldo can play at 100% of his abilities again,
He no longer has the pace and strength he used to have.
But then again a 80% Ronaldo is good enough.

You seriously need to stop just pulling shit out of your ass. HOW THE HELL do you know that he isn't performing to his abilities? Can you read minds? HE HAS AGED, people get old, they get slower. All you do is talk and talk nonsense, please give some evidence that SOMEWHAT substantiates your view and I might be obliged to agree because right now you sound like a total ******.

You blind or what?


It's not because you didn't see him play in his young days you have an excuse to not know how good he is. Ronaldo can play better, if you don't see that then you should simply not watch football cause you don't get it. And age is an ridiculous excuse. He's fucking 30 years old! How come Cafu could play like he always did till he was 35 and Ronaldo's getting old at 30???

You need reminding of the career threatening injury Ronaldo had, because of which he still can't fully twist his right knee, the effects it had on his body during the rehabilitation process (which added a lot of muscle mass) and the psychological effect that turned Ronaldo from that daring unstoppable youngster into a somewhat fearful and reserved player.

Ronaldo's 80% is better than 99% of the other players' 100%. Whoa.

Has Cafu had repeated knee injuries, one which managed to keep him out for an ENTIRE year? It's you who is obviously blind. He has been fantastic this year even with his form issues and he is probably going to be even better next season. What you are trying to say is that a player who has been badly injured in the past and aged has no excuse for being less capable than he once was? Have you seen the man run recently? He is nowhere near as fast as he once was, does that mean he is trying to run slow? No, he can't run any faster. You're acting like he isn't trying, he is trying he just can't give anymore physically.

I'm not acting like he isn't trying, I'm saying the man can't run faster because his body doesn't allow it. And if he would get in perfect condition he could run faster and could turn faster than now. He comes from a team where there's an alcohol smell in the locker room. A team that refuses to sprint if their coach asks on training. And you think that after 5 months of decent training he's in his best condition?

I think teis has a valid + strong point. Ronaldo has to focus at maintaining the prestige at Milan, seven times winners This summer will be crucial, and I think he knows it. He has the possibility of winning a cup that has eluded him in his highly decorated career with the squad Milan has. He has to work hard to get himself in prime condition. Losing the extra kilos + more work on his body prone persistent injuries would improve his game by quite a distance. I'm not saying he hasn't been somewhat of a success ... just that there is room for improvement, and I'm sure he knows it. If he's really dedicated, he'll work on it.

Well do you expect someone who had being playing at 70% to 80% ability for the past few years due to health and injury problems to suddenly recover at age 32 or 34? Do you expect Ronaldo to be running as fast as he used to be when he is 10 years younger?

Age does make a difference, my friend.
Unless you agree that if Pele trains everyday, he will be able to play at 100% of his ability.

Ronaldo is the best striker ever in the entire football history, but he had already past his peak although he is still good.

Can you count till 30? He's 30 years old, not 32 or 34. He got injured when he was like 26-27(?). So how come players like Jankulovski and Ricardo Oliveira, who both got similar injuries, come back but Ronaldo can't? Jankulovski got injured when he played for Udinese and hardly played his first year with us because of that. He was out for 6-9 months if i recall correctly, but now he's back. He even got injured when he was 28, so he was older than Ronaldo. Ricardo Oliveira went back to Brazil to come back after his injury.

So give me one decent reason
