I don't know if any of you thought into it seriously but do it now. There was that George Best chap, he scored 32 goals in a season as a winger - in the '60s when there were much more goals, much more space to play and much, much, much clumsier defenders.
Now, in 2008, we have a winger who scored 33 goals so far and it's only March, for heaven's sake! What he did is almost unimagineable, I don't think anyone would have ever thought that Best's record will be surpassed in this era. So Ronaldo was deservedly proud after his two strikes against Bolton gave him the record - and especially as he was wearing the captain's armband.
'It is always good to be captain at this massive club,' he told Sky Sports. 'For me it is an honour and a pleasure.
'But my responsibilities are still the same. I do not change my game or personality just because I am captain. It was a marvellous night for me.'
I can't help thinking that Fergie gave him the armband because he believed he would score at least one goal and would deserve to be skipper on such an occasion - after all, you don't surpass the record of one of the greatest ever footballers every day.
'Cristiano looks for that kind of responsibility, I think he`s very comfortable with it,' Fergie explained on MUTV.
'Not everyone wants to be captain to be honest with you, but he carries the mantle very well.'
'It was another marvellous free-kick. He does practice them, as we know, and he has a technique, but the practice thing is the most important aspect in terms of getting shots on target.'
I could never have imagined Ronaldo being captain but he looked like it - he's not a natural leader but can be a great skipper in games like these. Well done Ronaldo!
