it's quite ironic how i have little time to update my blog now that ronaldo is the toast of england.ofcourse, his detractors still exist in every nook and corner, but ronaldo turned around his fortunes in such dramatic fashion that any criticism of him looks baseless now, and not just to his fans.
looking back, his story has been a fairytale of sorts (one that would be complete if united go on to win the premier league and ronaldo gets some personal awards).
the maturity and courage shown by ronaldo after the whole WC incident not only impressed his critics but also propelled him to a near finished product, at the age of 21.the boy who lost his cool when 60,000 benfica fans booed his every touch last season became the man that took the english fans' abuse in his stride and used it to fire him up. i've lost count of matches in which ronaldo shut up opposition fans with a goal/assist/match winning performance this season.in the blackburn away game, the very people who booed him gave him a standing ovation when he was substituted in stoppage time, that's the sort of reaction ronaldo has come to evoke.
judging from the matches played so far, it looks like it's finally ronaldo's time to exact revenge. he marked his return to england with a brace against oxford united in a pre-season friendly, and opened his premiership season with a goal against fulham. since then, there has been no looking back for him.against benfica in the away CL fixture, ronaldo gave a MOTM performance, the same ground where he was booed off and responded with an offensive gesture last season. against manchester city, he scored the 3rd goal, a game in which he was sent off rather harshly last season.
i'm not attempting to recap this entire year in one post so i've probably missed out a few defining moments. i might blog more often in 2007, and i have a feeling it'll be cristiano's year.

Hey there!! Glad you're back and I totally agree that he's in the most incredible form ever! His performance this season has been brilliant in spite of all the jeerings from a very crybaby English crowd! Like you I have not missed a single Man U match this season so yay!!
On a totally unrelated note, try not to let heaps of books kill you! Take a minute or so to breathe, we have a human right to!
Btw, Happy Eid Al-Adha! :)

Hello samia, finally your blog-it again :)
"I am very happy" cause things I've predicted about the shining of CR7 with Man-United finally proved one tine at a times, and definitely it's not so hard to predicted since CR7 got the skill from top to down, and Man-United also a big club with great tradition of exeptional players.
2 times in a roll for Player of the Month, we'll wait for CR7 hattrick :))
