@ manutd fan: no need to knock CR7 to please the haters. The kid is good, has tremendous talent and is a bit of a prick. end of

CR7 is a rare player, rare talent and a dream signing. I don't think he is better than Kaka but what scares me is that he keeps on improving. I always knew he had it in him but he has exceeded my expectations as a goalscorer for sure.

Strangely enough I think Robinho would play better at ManU than CR7. Robinho isn't that much into the glam lideftyle (although is 10x the party animal), is humble, faster, more skillful, less selfish (i.e. will surely feed Rooney) and Nani looks to become a more than adequate successor to CR7. The only problem is that he is ov a very slight build....that and I don't rate him as a free kick taker. CR7 is very well built and is far more sturdy (and less injured) than Robinho. If in his early days Robinho was too slight for La Liga.....it's either he is going to be waaaaay faster than the defenders or is going to spend all his time on the stretcher.

I think Robinho is faster. CR7's speed is overrated. Kenwayne Jones, Aaron Lennon, Gabriel Abonglahor, Walcott and CO. will smoke him without breaking a sweat

lol well fergie has said he will let ronaldo rot in the stands rather than go to madrid this summer, and apparently he has told Barca that they can have him for 5 million less than Madrid offer (if its a big offer)

I doubt Milan would have the money to spend for him either, though i could be wrong.

lennon and Abonglahor and Walcot are quicker, but Ronaldo has better acceleration, plus defenders bounce off him as opposed to the other way around with the likes of walcott.

I wasn't trying to please the haters, i've said before that ronaldo has 3 different sides to him, as a person in interviews and behind the scenes he is really funny and looks like a good laugh, but then there is his play acting which i hate, but then sometimes I just think, like you, that considering his rate of improvement he could be scarily good. I mean, he's played vs what 45 teams this year? and he's scored vs every team minus Barca and City(suspeneded for 1 game aswell), I don't think i've ever seen a player like him in terms of goals as he can score every type of goal possible consistently.

Nike is doing speed testing on their players and CR7 is nowhere to be found....the top sprinters thus far are lennon Abonglahor and Walcott

LOL We might move for him when he is 31-32. Well that will give Galliani the chance to say he wanted to sign him 7-8 years ago but he was to expensive, bla bla bla.

continuing the discussion here - yes kaka has dissapeared in some big games too but lets not forget tonaldo with the sheer quality and depth of the team backing him up ihas got an easier opportunity to dominate the big games whereas our squad is a little depleted and lacks man utd's quality and depth

he hasn't said anything yet, 2 days ago he said 'in the next 2-3 days' so i think he will speak tommorow.

Its a 100% guarantee that he won't be leaving this summer anyway, or so fergie says anyway.

`RONALDO TELLS AGENT HE WANTS REAL MOVE`

Posted 04/06/08 08:22

EmailPrintSave



Cristiano Ronaldo is reported to have told his agent that he wants to leave Manchester United in order to fulfil his "dream" of playing for Real Madrid.

The Guardian reports that 'The Portugal international has informed his agent, Jorge Mendes, that he wants to play in Spain and his decision has already been outlined to Madrid, encouraging them to step up their attempts to prise him from Old Trafford.'

Earlier this week, Ronaldo informed the Spanish press that he would make an announcement on his future in the next two or three days. However, that deadline is set to come and go with no public word from the forward. Instead, says the Guardian, 'one of his associates briefed the Portuguese journalists that Ronaldo, as suspected, was hoping United would relent on their refusal to entertain the idea of negotiating a world-record transfer.'

Ronaldo's dealings with the press are becoming, depending on your point of view, either all the more bizarre or all the more telling. That he has developed a propensity to only talk to Spanish press is itself revealing, and an example of the nudge-nudge-wink-wink approach that has kept the story running on both the back and front pages is detailed in this morning's edition of The Independent.

'When a Spanish journalist upstaged a press conference last week at the squad's base at Viseu, northern Portugal, by presenting the player with a Real team poster and telling him: "I am here to say one thing: 'We want you with us,'" an employee of the Portuguese Football Federation tried to intervene,' the newspaper reports. 'Ronaldo waved away the official's protestations and insisted on receiving the poster. "It's a present for me. I want it," he said.'

No wonder the Spanish press are convinced that Ronaldo will start next season in a white shirt.

interesting that he scored the most in the last 15... any idea how many were important versus how many were games that were already over?

he scored a lot of goals when say we were 1-0 up, and he'd pop up with a goal or 2 late on.

everton (2-1)
derby (1-0)
arsenal (2-2)
liverpool (2-0 selaed the game on 85')
aston villa (2-0 scored the first around 85 mins)
spurs (3-1 scored twice)
Sporting Lisbon (2-1)

these are the only games where he scored late on that were important. I may have missed 1 or 2.

IMO his peformances is 06/07 were better than those in 07/08. Lots of times this season he played badly and nicked a goal, wheras in 06/07 he was MOTM in just about every game and had the top assists in the league.

he's more of a 'predetor' now.

thats not too bad... to be honest ive always felt that he was a very selfish player... but leading the league in assists kind of contradicts that i guess... hmm...
