Just catching up but have to say that Ronaldo debate yesterday was a joke. couldn't hack the Prem? Unreal. We just had a 35 year old Zlatan bury 27 goals in a season. Ronaldo is a freak. He can't be measured with the same measuring stick. Top of my head the lad has never had more than 5 months out injured in his whole career.
People say his pace has gone. Has it? While he may not be lightning anymore he is still rapid. Look at his sprints next to some defenders. Its explosive speed over a short distance. He is saving himself for the right moments. He knows his body. If you watch Messi, he pretty much stands still without the ball.
Ronaldo would still do the business here. He would cause defenders nightmares the night before a game on reputation alone.
He won't come back though. he's done it all at United and Madrid. Ronaldo never strikes me as a guy who looks back. Always forward.

He's been looking back plenty whenever he wants a new contract though.

17 Jun 2018 09:41:17
I've got no problem praising Ronaldo for his immense achievements and his brilliance over the years - he did well the other night, nothing more. But if a Mexican player scored 3 goals like that today, there would be 0.0001% amount of praise being dished out. I think people are being swayed by the tabloid headlines, he actually didn't do much.

Ronaldo's general performances have been getting worse as time goes on, you barely notice he is playing most games - you barely see him beat a man as well - he is just clinical now and how many chances do we create? Signing him would be a massive mistake, entirely the wrong type of player we need. We don't get many penalties and those DDG mistakes are once in a blue moon things, so is his scoring of freekicks. So based on that is he really that necessary?

If Oleg Salenko was about today and scored 5 in one game I can just imagine the fans wanting the chequebook out - it's just media overkill corrupting people.

BTW - All we ever hear from Ronaldo and his agent is how he wants/ wanted to come back to Utd, during contract negotiations time of course. I have never heard a player 'look back' with their comments as much as Ronaldo - has there ever been a bigger tease? So because he scored a hattrick on the big-stage we can just say whatever we like about him now, so long as it is over-the-top nice even if it contradicts facts about how he has carried on since he left us?

I literally can't believe the over reaction to a pretty poor hattrick aside from the freekick, which again was against his typical record, throw enough darts at the board! You can see freekicks like that scored walking the dog, it happens often - several others scored in the WC already! It was good, it was dramatic, but come on - that is the criteria of still being World Class?

We are also not as good as Madrid as well, or as bad as Portugal (we have other people that want the ball as well) - he would see the ball less, get far less chances and is physically declining. The fear-factor would wane within weeks, the media circus would be horrible, not too sure he would fit a style that we play either to be honest as he struggles to beat a man now and he would have little support. Seriously I'd rather keep Lukaku.

17 Jun 2018 10:07:03
Can see Real signing Ronaldo on again as if they let him go he could haunt them badly but if anywhere in Europe I can see a Ronaldo to PSG and Neymar to Real deal happening, maybe not a swap but the players going in those directions.
Ronaldo in the Prem, I dunno, if he was CF at City opening Liverpool then he prob would be just as devastating because he is so clinical and those teams create bucket loads of chances but he won’t join them and only United in the Prem but as Beast says how many chances do we actually create, RedRom would have to make way, his wages would be ridiculous, it just wouldn’t work for me.
Brilliant player for us and gone onto unbelievable heights, for me he is prob the best player of all time, maradona, Pele, Best up there, he’s outstripped Messi now for me, done it in La Liga, the Prem, International, 5 ballon dors, prob be a 6th, half way to a golden boot already, can’t say enough about how he looks after himself and what he achieved, but as crazy as it sounds after saying all that I wouldn’t want him back as it’s just not right now.

17 Jun 2018 10:37:47
Never heard a player being criticised for being ‘just clinical’ before. Said it before and I’ll say it again. Nobody at our club is anywhere near as good as him.

17 Jun 2018 10:58:39
Clinton N'Jie started the season with 6 shots, 5 goals, all 6 on target, that's somebody that was 'just clinical'. Sign him up!

Our old favourite Wazzer was the 3rd most clinical player in the league last season. 21.5% shot conversion apparently. Not sure how much else he brought to the table.

17 Jun 2018 11:54:27
The guy remains phenomenal. I'm sure he could contribute in the prem for a couple of years. I don't care how it happened but scoring 3 goals against Spain is extraordinary and something inconceivable for any English player (I hope to be proved wrong during the next month) . But the reality is his overall contribution will decline markedly every year, while the attention demands of his massive ego and the constant press attention will probably not. His massive salary will reduce funds needed for investments in new players and will block the natural progression of younger players and the team in general. A reunion between United and Ronaldo is just a piece of nostalgic twaddle. It won't and shouldn't happen. It can only end badly.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath about Ronaldo returning to MU.}

There it is the cherry on the top. Not only did we deny Tris the title, but we have made a scouser proclaim the now immortal line and new LFC club motto "next year will be our year". Lol.

{Ed001's Note - I put that in especially for you mate.}

Fellas, this post may not mean much. But I've been on this site since I was 16 years old, I'm now 21 moving in with my missus (god help me) .
Today's game just shows how far these pages have grown, yes people on here don't see eye to eye all the time, but I find it the best site on the Internet, and whilst I don't know anyone on here personally, I value each and every opinion.
Today's match, was just a start of how far these sites can grow, Benny baller, what you have helped put together is amazing. I hope this is an annual thing, and I'd have loved to have played but due to other commitments I couldn't.
Too all the Ed's and players, I'm proud of you all!

Was thinking about Ronaldo and how he might adapt his game as he gets older. Seems like he's looked after himself so potentially he could play at a top level until he is 40. He's already changed his role from all out winger to pretty much centre forward. Could he play as a no 10 or even deeper as a playmaker? Does he have the skilset? I could see Messi playing a deeper role as he ages but i'm wondering if Ronaldo has the passing range and defensive positioning needed for a deeper role? Is it just a case that he's a football genius so would exell anywhere on the pitch, even in goal or at centre half?

I'm interested in this because their is always talk of him returning to Utd and the only doubt about whether this is a good idea is his age. However, if we could get 5 - 7 good years of top quality Ronaldo then that's got be a good thing. It might not be peak years flying down the wing Ronaldo but that doesn't me and he can't be bloody good and really effective for us for many years. I've read talk that he couldn't hack it in the Premier league anymore and that's just crazy. I think he's plenty hard enough and capable of taking care of himself. A sensible manager would look after him and make the most of his big game temprament. We shouldn't need to waste his miles in the tank on playing Huddersfield at home.

I think Ronaldo is exactly what Utd need right now. He's a total winner and I think we could get many years of great football from him. Most of though he brings some wow factor and I'd love to see him back playing at OT.

Agree0 Disagree3

17 Jun 2018 08:06:25
I can see him in America in a year or 2 .
I think he will want to go out at the top not fade away .
Last 2 seasons he has scored 25 and 26 league goals great return for any player other than Ronaldo.
I think he would find it harder to score goals in the EPL and maybe the physical nature of the league but you never know .
Messi scored 34 and 37 in comparison and that's playing a deeper role, if Ronaldo can't continue that standard I think he may look at America or even France with psg.

17 Jun 2018 09:16:28
Off your rocker jred if you really believe that.

If you look at his stats during his time at Madrid, the last 2 seasons were extremely consistent with the years previous in terms of games and goals.

He played 29 league games in 2016 and 27 league games in 2017 scoring 25 and 26.

He played 46 games scoring 42 in 2016 and 44 games scoring 44, entirely consistent with his previous seasons, average a goal a game since his start at Madrid.

Incredible how you can question this guy given his record.

Comparing him to messis return isn't the debate here, it's whether or not he could do it in the PL. I don't think there is any argument.

17 Jun 2018 09:50:02
He could do it in the premier league if he had the teammates to create the chances for him.

17 Jun 2018 09:58:43
I haven't questioned his record, what I said was I think he will want to go out at the top not fade away .
Last 2 seasons his goal return and games played in the league were his lowest since joining .
His overall goal tally for this season and the previous are the lowest since his first season with Madrid.

I think he will want to keep that tally up and will find that hard to do in the epl and with United I don't see him hitting 50 or 60 a season for United. Even the 42, 44 he over the last couple of seasons .
And at 33 years old coming back to the EPL is big ask .
So it's not if he will score goals it's if he will score as many and be as influential as he would like in this United team .
Psg makes more sense ibra scored 38 league goals in his last season and then 17 the following for United.
I think it's harder to score goals in the EPL than either French and Spanish league and a lot harder on the body . Ask ibra
Ronaldo could probably prolong his career avoiding the EPL.
Buts that just my opinion.

16 Jun 2018 22:15:27
Well where do i start, been a long slog over the last 8 months, but today went of without any hitches.

Everyone turned up, which was my biggest fear, so thank you all for playing. Seeing 24 strangers instantly know each other, was the weirdest thing i've ever experienced.

I want to thank each player individually, and i hope i did that today. For here i want to thank our two captains, Pete and Ken. Brilliant role models for the rest of us today, and set the tone for a strong competitive ( but fair ) game.

£730 has been raised so far, which is brilliant, and will be split between seva and macmillan, however i want to hit my target of £1000, so if there are any last minute donations, please send them to my paypal (go fund me took £20 of the £300 raised there, not too happy)

Kens awful dive

Mk scousers one run

My second goal disallowed through a shocking call from the linesman ( make your own minds up)

BXL red nut megging someone who then subbed himself

Two wonderful speeches at the end

And many many more.

But for now. Ed002s, Walham green east wapping, carpet cleaning rodent and boggit exterminating association, ( thank god i don't have to type that for 12 more months) HOLD THE MATT HAWKER CUP! :D

Once again, thank you to all involved and all donations.

Fantastic effort made by yourself Ben, you can be proud. I had a great time, and will definitely be back for next year. Well done mate.

16 Jun 2018 22:57:06
Well done to all involved, what do we search in you tube to find the highlights.

17 Jun 2018 04:11:50
Make it ireland next year yeah.

17 Jun 2018 05:18:14
Wow what did I miss?
Guys anybody recorded the game and can provide a link to video or something?
I am sure I’ll enjoy this more than WC.
I’d love to be able to fly over from Asia to next year’s game to watch and interact with y’all next year.
Great if anyone can provide the recording. Thanks in advance.
Even better if there is self intro of all the players 😉👏.

17 Jun 2018 07:56:30
666Red, if you have Facebook they are on the "football-rumours" page. Benny will be uploading to YouTube at some point. However, I think he's earned a day or two off. He has put in a huge effort to pull this game off, and the success of it was down to him.

17 Jun 2018 08:02:48
Well done guys. A great effort from all involved. Benny we will use VAR when the highlights uploaded to sort out the goal.

{Ed001's Note - no need, it was clearly a mile offside and ken was brutally hacked down....}

17 Jun 2018 08:07:42
Great effort well done to all involved.

17 Jun 2018 10:09:15
I read it wrong, Thought it read uploaded to you tube already.
No panic, you all deserve a few days off, Ken might need 2 weeks😀.

17 Jun 2018 13:21:51
Leahy i think i'm dying. I put 1 foot on floor when i got out of bed and fell over😂

Great day and i'd like to thank atko top right back lee who scored and grand master ramrod ( top class keeper) and shappy who is as nice a person as you could wish to meet. For holding up our end from the United page.
Still say it wasn't a dive but the coverage us there for you to see for yourselves. 😂.

17 Jun 2018 13:35:25
Thanks Shappy for that.
Benny look forward to whatever you have on the guys. Thanks in advance.

"We have 23 high-level athletes, Fred is not in a position to play, " said Tite
Looks like Fred won't make the squad tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2018 09:48:44
Tite said Fred.

16 Jun 2018 21:35:33
It been said that Spain and Man utd Goalkeeper David DeGea may be suffering from Concussion after last night's 3-3 draw with Portugal.

Mr Hierro has told Reporters that during the game Sergio Ramos hand collided with DeGea causing what he suspects is mild Concussion

If test results come back posistive then it would explain the below average performance from a player once called the greatest inthe world.
