That's More Like It!

delighted with ronaldo's response after last match's disappoinment.i think i would've had a nervous breakdown if he didn't show up for this game.nowadays i'm so worried if a trick would come off or if he'll get past his marker or not that i almost forget why i became such a huge fan of his in the first place.he's all about generating excitement and brining spectators to the edge of their seats and watching him play today, i was reminded of that ronaldo and it brought a smile to my face.


ronaldo looked charged up and ready to take on defenders right from kick-off and that's always a good sign.not to say that he doesn't put effort into every game but he seemed especially determined to get things right in this one.i think the first half saw a deadly mix of ronaldo's many attributes: delightful skills, amazing pace, heading ability and assisting goals.united took the lead inside the opening 10 minutes and ronaldo was the architect.after a tottenham corner was cleared, ronaldo received the ball near the edge of united's 18 yard box and ran forward with a defender tagging along.he passed the ball to ruud and kept running and ruud's return pass seemed to be heading out for a goal kick but ronaldo's pace helped him get to it just in time and make an outstanding pass from the left, with his right foot, to rooney in the 6 yard just had to look at ronaldo's fist thumping reaction to see how happy he of his skills were treated to some delightful footwork...the wasteful nature of his skills in the last match didn't discourage him from using them again and it's good to see that he's always optimistic.i remember him turning a tottenham defender inside out and then finding park with a no-look-pass.then there was his lightning fast stepovers that made david's later attempt look ,umm, amateurish.his tricks also had purpose today as i recall him sending silvestre free with one backheel and getting the ball to a teammate in a tight situation.

the second half saw tottenham dominate possession so ronaldo wasn't really getting much of the ball or pushing forward.but i remember him making a clever run into the box where he received the ball from giggs and while his first touch was great, he ended up shooting over the bar.a commendable effort nonetheless 'cause it's not often that you see ronaldo making those striker-like runs.he spent most of the time in united's half trying to defend...i've seen him cover players but him closing down someone running with the ball is a rare sight for some reason.i'm not saying that he has to do that but maybe some fans would like him better if he did.maybe they'll stop their incessant 'rooney rooney' chants and for once take ronaldo's name. or maybe not, 'cause whether he scored and they're cheering him or he's playing bad and they're trying to encourage him, all i ever hear is rooney chants. anyway, i'm not going to spoil my current mood by brooding over's hoping we see similar impressive performances from ronaldo in the remaining fixtures.

What The Hell Was That ?!

i can't begin to explain how angry and disgusted i feel right now. last night's game was unbelievably painful to watch, and to think i stayed up late for that, when i had an important test today morning.i don't claim to be precognitive but before the match, i thought to myself that this could well be a lots-of-possession-but-no-goals encounter and unfortunately, i was right.ronaldo frustrated me a lot, i was ready to tear into him today in my entry but reading what the media wrote about his performance changed my mind.he has been labelled the 'culprit'. would you believe that? when the whole team was sloppy, wasteful and sub-par? i f*cking hate the english media.there, i said it.


as for the actual match,i don't know where to was basically a childish performance by united in the first half and as an 'arm-chair' fan, it was even more frustrating for me as i couldn't scream my lungs out at the players for their stupidity.i've lost count of the number of times ronaldo made space for himself, ran the length of the field, got himself into dangerous positions but was completely ignored by his teammates. rooney was visibly selfish and opted to shoot from all over the place instead of feeding the ball to an unmarked ronaldo, you could tell ronaldo was livid. but then again, ronaldo really didn't help himself.when he did get the ball, he seemed uncertain of what to do with it.but that still doesn't excuse rooney's and other's decision to not give ronaldo the ball when he's right infront of the goal, unmarked.and what's with the close-ups of ronaldo? i remember seeing several replays of ronaldo falling in the penalty area and it looked like an honest slip, infact he didn't even appeal for a penalty, but it seemed like the replays were shown just to suggest that ronaldo was diving when that clearly wasn't the case.i don't recall seeing replays of park tumbling and rolling when he was touched so what the hell are they trying to prove?

i thought the team played a more mature second half but it still wasn't enough for a win.ronaldo for once was given a pass at the proper time and he shot at goal, but the sunderland goalkeeper blocked it in time.i don't remember much details but ronaldo seemed to put in more effort and i recall him winning balls a few times.anyway, i was too ticked off by then to really concentrate on the game.i was waiting for a miracle of sorts, some magic from ronaldo that would win the match.but nothing came.sometimes i wonder if it's wrong to expect so much from his as ferguson said after the game...but i feel he's capable of all that and much more.


Predictably, Ronaldo was the worst culprit. Every time the ball reached the Portugal winger, he appeared to look upon it as a chance to experiment.

Ryan Giggs, a gnarled veteran of dogged championship fights and hardly lacking in ability himself, felt it necessary to admonish his young team-mate at one stage and it was Ronaldo who got robbed by Justin Hoyte to start the move which ended with Jonathan Stead turning a fine chance into the side-netting.

Ronaldo was denied two glorious goalscoring chances by his own team-mates, with Ruud van Nistelrooy intercepting one Wayne Rooney pass before it reached the winger. Then Rooney himself ignored his better-placed team-mate in the final minute of the first-half, although he did force a fingertip save from Kelvin Davis.

"predictably".it's manchesteronline with their usual anti-ronaldo bollocks.i remember when they gave him a 6! after his perfomance against fulham at OT where he scored a brace and even added that he 'lacked end product'.hello, what were those two goals.after a lot of protest by more sensible fans, they did change the rating but that was their actual attitude towards's funny how they mention that ronaldo was denied two clear goal scoring chances by teammates and still hold him responsible for the unexpected draw.what about rooney's selfishness and ruud's poor first touches and lack of finishing? giggs's two skyed free kicks? it's always ronaldo ronaldo ronaldo when something goes wrong.screw the english press.

Man. Utd. vs Arsenal

you'd think i'm crazy but i'm not the happiest person right now, even though united just won a crucial game against arsenal, that too with a 2-0 scoreline.reason? ronaldo's, he didn't make any glaring mistakes or disappear from the game, but i was expecting so much more from him yesterday.while i admit to day dreaming about ronaldo scoring a hattrick, i'm not upset that that didnt materialise...i just hoped his brilliance showed through more, when a larger audience than usual was watching the game. what happened to 'big game player' ronaldo? i recall him being truly impressive in two big games this season: cheslea at OT and carling cup final.he needs to step up his performance in more important games, go out of his way to make an even bigger impact.that's how he's going to shut his critics...i take criticism of ronaldo quite personally and it frustrates me when he doesn't help his cause by not doing what he does best.i just want him to do well damn it.

now to the game.i was expecting ronaldo to have a field day against flamini but every time he charged down the wing, he was closed down by gilberto/sanderos, along with flamini, and that reduced his effectiveness in beating his marker and crossing into the box to some extent.he also seemed to play a smaller role in attack yesterday, i remember ruud, rooney and giggs/park surging forward on one or two occasions and ronaldo wasn't on the screen because he was still in midfield.


ronaldo played in the centre for a few minutes in the first half and i found myself pleading him to move out wide and use his pace to run at flamini.i don't know if it was for tactical reasons but ronaldo seemed to avoid going forward, opting instead to feed the ball to neville who was in a more advanced position than ronaldo on many occasions.anyway, ronaldo did make some important interceptions and worked well and ran hard to keep the ball in play several times.if i remember correctly, park's goal happened because ronaldo ran back several yards on the right wing to keep the ball in the field and then fed it to neville who passed to rooney and the latter set up park's goal.

it would be wrong to say ronaldo had a bad game and i don't want anyone to get that impression from my entry, but i think my lack of satisfaction with ronaldo's performance has to do with my high expectations before the game.i don't think i'm wrong to expect great things from him because he is capable of them.he was a pressure reliever of sorts yesterday, the team would give the ball to him and wait for him to attract the defenders and this would take some of the pressure off them...i would've preferred seeing him involved more in attacking though.oh well, there's still the chelsea game.

Cristiano Ronaldo was magnificent in flashes yesterday while the versatile Ryan Giggs continues to impress, but they lacked the sustained excellence of Rooney. 
(that's exactly what i didn't want to hear/read after the game)

p.s. i thought ronaldo was going to be presented with his pfa award before the game? all i saw was rooney with his barclay's award.

Finally...Some Noise

it took ronaldo two months of back to back impressive performances to finally get some recognition.welcome to the premiership.though i thought ronaldo deserved the PFA Fan's Player of the Month award for his performance in february, i'm equally pleased to see him land this honour for his efforts through march.


Ronaldo's top dog in the Premiership

Manchester United's belated surge and chasing down of Premiership leaders Chelsea has been due in no small part to the scintillating form of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been a revelation this year - even by his own high standards.

moving to the whole speculation surrounding ronaldo's future and his supposed desire to move to madrid this summer, i find it amusing that some papers are making a meal of the whole story by printing selected quotes to give the impression that ronaldo has 'opened doors to spanish interests'.i was impressed with ronaldo's honesty when he shared his dream of playing in the spanish league with the entire world, instead of insisting that he'll stay at united for life and then ending up sneaking out the backdoor a few years from now like some footballers.

check out what Manchester Evening News published and compare it to ronaldo's quotes from Sky Sports . the former source has conveniently left out the part where ronaldo says he's only thinking about united at the moment, probably to create a stir.i guess this is what you get for being honest.

i've come across several real madrid fans who would be more than happy to have him play in the white shirt and surprisingly, some of them were even aware of how ronaldo is largely unappreciated in england.people seem to be confident of ronaldo doing well in the spanish league, almost expecting him to do for madrid what ronaldinho did for barcelona and i'm not sure if such high expectations are healthy.

i've said this before and it wouldn't hurt to say it again, i'm completely torn over ronaldo leaving united now or in the immediate future.i'd love to see it happen and at the same time,i'd hate it.maybe i should just listen to ronaldo himself and let things run their course.sigh.

United vs Bolton

just last wednesday ronaldo looked like he was really enjoying his football, but another incident involving a referee turning a blind eye to a foul on him left ronaldo frustrated and seething with angry ronaldo looks irresistable (from a girl's p-o-v) but one thing's for sure, he isn't half as effective.
ronaldo started brightly (albeit a little late, since neville was back as right back and did his usual 'ignore-ronaldo' routine for the first few minutes).anyway, when ronaldo got the ball and started running at the defenders, he looked unstoppable, and his pin point cross to rooney in the 10th minute or so added a threatening end product to his pacy run.had rooney not fluffed that shot, and saha reacted quicker to a great corner taken by ronaldo from the left, united would've had two more goals in the first half, and ronaldo would've had 2 assists by then.

ronaldo seemed to be closely marked by atleast 2 bolton players the entire first half, one of them being stelios ginakpxznbcxu (pictured above) who had the nerve to ignore all the voices raised against diving recently when he indulged in some theatrics at ronaldo's expense.while the two were fighting for the ball, stelios collapsed and clutched his face like his eye had just been plucked out.sure enough, the referee fell for it and gave a foul against ronaldo...replays showed that ronaldo didn't as much as brush his hand against his wonder ronaldo looked like he could kill the referee.

ronaldo didn't see much of the ball for long stretches of the's like when he loses the ball once, his teammates stop trusting him with it, so he's the last passing option.anyway, one positive build up by united in the second half ended with ronaldo shooting only inches above the bar.the goal keeper hardly reacted

and had the ball gone in, it would've been another long range special from ronaldo.
the clear agitation at decisions going against him showed in ronaldo's play and the referee finally booked him.though ronaldo reacted with a sarcastic applause and you-cant-be-serious smile, the booking seemed to calm him down and after ruud's introduction, ronaldo played with new drive and motivation.he was back to his 'west ham' form and was being a thorn in bolton's defence with his pace and creative dangerous, pin point - okay: beckhamesque- cross from ronaldo could've been poked in by ruud but he appeared to be fouled and his penalty claims were turned down.then ronaldo presented saha with a goal scoring opportunity on a silver platter when he received the ball from ruud, ran to the 18 yard box and made an unselfish pass to saha to leave him one-on-one with the goal keeper but the latter's shot was blocked.ronaldo was denied two more assists.anyway, all's well that ends well and united got the 3 points at the end of the game.

by the way, time's running out for ronaldo to win his 15 goal bet with ferguson.united have 6 more games to play in which ronaldo needs to score 4 more goals to reach his would be awesome if he scored them against arsenal, tottenham and chelsea.

Sky Sports

a few ronaldo clips from yesterday's game thanks to Ronaldo7

after figo 'recommended' ronaldo to real madrid's president, ronaldo has confessed that he's like to play in the spanish league some day:

"If God wants it then one day I will play in the Spanish league," Ronaldo told Marca. "It is one of my aims, but I am just starting out in the game.

Despite the rumours, Ronaldo is in no hurry to leave Old Trafford, where he has a contract until 2010 and insists that he is not distracted by stories linking him with Madrid

"I am playing for one of the biggest clubs and only think about Manchester United," he concluded.

i for one sure want to see ronaldo in the spanish league...just don't know when.

ronaldo, february's Opta player of the month, landed the fifth position in the Opta list for his performance through out march:

Cristiano Ronaldo also enjoyed an impressive March, peppering the opposition goal with a total of 19 attempts and bagging the opening goal in the 2-1 win against Wigan. The wily winger also provided two goal assists as well as setting up 14 goalscoring chances for his team-mates, a divisional high for the month.

Player Club Index Score
Henry Arsenal 2255
Vidic Manchester United 1644
Mendes Portsmouth 1642
Adebayor Arsenal 1516
Ronaldo Manchester United 1483

he set up 14 goal scoring chances...14.of which only two were converted into goals.and people say he has no end product.

United vs West Ham

it's been a while since united played a mid-week game and i actually enjoy staying up late, fighting sleep in an attempt to not miss anything that unfolds on the tv screen and being jolted awake from my half drowsy state every time ronaldo does something amazing.makes the whole ronaldo experience a lot more surreal.yes, watching him is an experience on its own.


yesterday's game saw another emphatic performance from ronaldo.i loved everything about it - his amazing acceleration, mazy runs, how-did-he-do-that ?! moves and even ball distribution and crosses.i thought ronaldo saw more of the ball on the right wing than he has in recent matches...maybe it was down to pique playing in neville's position as he seemed more willing to feed the ball to ronaldo.not much has been said about this but i thought ronaldo picked out his teammates really well with his passes, he made use of every little opening.though details of both the halves are hazy, i recollect a ronaldo penalty appeal being turned down (no, it wasn't a dive), a few good crosses which weren't taken advantage of by the players in the box and one of those jolt-me-awake moments.ronaldo had moved to the left wing from the right, and after receiving the ball and advancing with a few graceful strides, in one sudden, unexpected and quick move he accelerated past benayoun and was...gone.vintage ronaldo.

the first 10 to 15 minutes of the second half saw united play some free flowing, entertaining football. ronaldo wetted my appetite for some hardcore skills when some nifty footwork left two west ham players rooted to their place and the entire stadium buzzing.the reaction of the crowd must've excited ronaldo as his next few touches were some skill or the other.he even did his 'keepy uppy' trick, the one that had the andy-s green and gray fuming at its "disrespectful" nature (what next, ronaldo's skills encourage racism in football?). there was only one instant where i thought ronaldo should've done better...i love his rabonas but this time the better option was to pass and he realised that the second after he did the move.the second half saw more of ronaldo's killer pace as he outran the west ham left back to put the ball to rooney with his left was great work from ronaldo and his ability to use both feet is a big advantage for him.anyway, rooney hit the crossbar so what could've been an impressive assist came to nothing.had ruud and rooney converted all the great chances created for them by ronaldo so far, ronaldo would've had a lot more than just 5 assists this season.ronaldo's pace continued to create problem and at one point, while running down the right wing, ronaldo fell down after being tackled by a defender but he was up in a split second and won a throw in.i love seeing such determination from's hard not to have faith in his development when you see him play that way.
while ronaldo's skills were a joy to watch, he did end up giving the ball away a few times but i don't see why some are using that as an excuse to single out cristiano for criticism.all through the match i saw every player give away possession in some way or the other.everytime ronaldo picked out ruud with a pass, the latter's knee gave way mysteriously whenever a defender approached him from the back so there went united's possession.some of park's runs were halted by easy tackles.don't get me wrong, i like them both but if we are going to point out how united kept giving the ball away, we might as well mention all the guilty parties.

big praise for ronaldo from west ham's manager pardew
"We can take a lot out of this game. We have come to a world-class club and played against world-class players.

"A lot of our players have made a huge step this year. To see Cristiano Ronaldo playing like he did shows the level of individual we are now in the grace of."

Why The World Cup Is Crucial For Ronaldo

it seems like whichever site or forum i go to, ronaldo is a victim of stereotype, and opinions on him are greatly generalised, sometimes even prejudiced.i cannot really fault some of them as they don't watch ronaldo on a weekly basis, but they still feel the need to comment on him, ending up sounding like the average english football pundit with the 'all flash and no/scant end product' view.people deny it, but they're greatly influenced by the media's approach to certain players.when talking about the likes of messi and rooney,most football fans automatically praise them even if they haven't been particularly impressive in recent matches but with ronaldo, it's a matter of thinking twice before crediting him with something, even if he has been playing well.the media hasn't really made much of the fact that since ronaldo found his form after his 3 match ban, united as a team have been playing this observation has gone largely unnoticed. ferguson recently pointed out the extent to which the media inlfuences opinion when he questioned the efficiency of the FA's compliance unit :"The compliance unit doesn't react unless the press report it. When Stephen Jordan made that horrific tackle on Cristiano Ronaldo, the press didn't report it and the compliance unit did nothing."

general opinion on ronaldo ranges from the ignorant to the absolute ludicrous.the other day i came across someone who said cristiano was the most predictable player around because he's breaks into a stepover sequence everytime he gets the ball.seriously, when was the last time you watched him play? ronaldo has long proved those who criticised him for a being a "one trick pony" wrong.ofcourse, now those same poeple have given him the "no end product" tag but if you're going to sit and criticise him, the least you can do is read up on ronaldo's latest 'flaw'.speaking of end product, no player in the world has a 100% conversion rate and in ronaldo's case, his 'lack' of finishing is greatly exaggerated.those who don't watch him regularly are bound to produce the same point over and over again in defence of their criticism of ronaldo.
and then there was a member who was convinced that ronaldo was an international flop who has done nothing for the portugal national team so far.i cannot imagine anyone in his or her right frame of mind making that claim since ronaldo has been one of the primary reasons for portugal's great euro 2004 form and unbeaten run in the qualifiers by scoring goals, making assists and simply being present on the field.


this is where the world cup steps in.ignorant views stem from seldom watching a player or team play and the world cup would provide the ideal platform for ronaldo to show the world what he's all's more or less a make or break situation, ronaldo has to sieze this opportunity or be written off permanently.the likes of rooney can afford to have a bad torunament as they always get the recognition they deserve (and at times, don't deserve) anyway, but sadly that's not the case with ronaldo.i do acknowledge that not everbody is compelled to love ronaldo but it gets highly irritating and frustrating when people criticise him for the wrong reasons.ronaldo has to help his country go far in the competition and prove his many critics wrong...i can feel the pressure already.

on a slightly different note, given that ronaldo continues to have a free role in the portuguese team, his ability to play in all forward positions (wing/centre midfield/upfront) would also be highlighted and that's crucial in deciding where he's used for his club because, although his pace and trickery have made him a success on the wings, i've always felt that he'd be more lethal as an attacking midfielder or support striker.

this is a big year in ronaldo's career and judging from recent interviews, he's fully aware of what's expected of for me, i can hardly wait for the world cup to get underway.

United vs Birmingham

writer's block has complicated my task of updating this blog and i've been putting off writing something for the past half hour or so because i don't know where to begin!anyway, putting this less than perfect introduction behind and getting straight to the match, ronaldo's passing had me drooling yesterday - yes, i'm talking about his beautifully executed chip to rooney which left the latter one on one with the goalkeeper.for all the talk on ronaldo having no vision or football brain and other nonsense of that sort, he showed great presence of mind with that one move.even though i was watching the game on tv, and had an aerial view of birmingham's half, i wouldn't have thought of doing that.take a bow, cristiano.

ronaldo was having something of an off-day as far his his tricks were concerned but otherwise, his passing and mazy runs made him one of the best united players on the field.remember when he streaked down the wing and put in a perfect cross which richardson couldn't really convert? and when he went past 4 birmingham players with his pace alone only for his efforts to go to waste by ruud's offside position? after the game, some were of the view that ronaldo was wasteful and unnecessarily elaborate at times but i recall only one incident where he probably should've done better than give the ball away, otherwise i thought he played a pretty direct game and when he lost the ball a few minutes before the end of the match, he went back and calmly retrieved it.he seems to doing that more often these days.

ronaldo had a hand in two of united's three goals.he won a free kick near birmingham's 18 yard box which giggs converted for united's 1st, and it was also his flicked header right into rooney's path that set up united's 3rd.2 great moves initiated by ronaldo to set up rooney had earlier been wasted by the latter so it was something of a relief to finally see rooney do justice to ronaldo's efforts.

Again Giggs was involved as his flick from Cristiano Ronaldo's pass sent Rooney clear, but the England man could only fire his left foot effort just wide of Taylor's post.

Then an even better chance came, this time it was Ronaldo who threaded the ball through the static City defence - only for Rooney to once again fire wide with Taylor looking beaten.

The goal was real route-one stuff as van der Sar's clearance was flicked on by Ronaldo, Rooney took the ball down and past Martin Latka before firing past the stricken Taylor.

But the abiding memory of the first half an hour will have been United's dynamic play with Rooney and Ronaldo in their element as they displayed some devastating footwork.

Rooney should have got on the scoresheet himself but squandered two clear-cut chances after being put through by Ronaldo.

Times Online
Rooney then contrived to miss two one-on-ones • the first from a beautiful flick by Giggs, the second from a delicious chip from Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a field day

after city fans voted ronaldo the most notorious diver in the premiership which is a blatant lie, i think i'll take scant comfort in the news that Gordon Taylor, chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association, said Drogba should follow the example set by Cristiano Ronaldo and learn to stay on his feet when tackled.
"We had a similar thing in the past with Cristiano Ronaldo and he was known for going to ground too quickly. He is looking to remove that from his game and as a result he is a much better player."

and this is another must see video of ronaldo teaching some lucky kids a few tricks, also includes SAF and wes brown's interview where they talk about ronaldo:
