Ronaldo Off To Madrid At Last

Ronaldo Off To Madrid At Last

OK, so we almost believed that Ronaldo was going to stay. After all, he spent most of the spring talking about how wonderfully happy he is at United - yet he is off to Madrid now.

According to the club's statement, Ronaldo himself asked to be allowed to leave and Real put in an unconditional offer of 80 million which, roughly, is an absolutely staggering amount of cash which we will receive straightaway when Ronaldo signs his deal.

It's not a question that he will leave now, I'm sure he'll be able to negotiate a good enough deal with Florentino Perez. I can't say I'm happy and I do not kid myself: the current squad is not good enough to win things without Ronaldo. However, the foundations are there. We'll need two or three major signings to be able to compete with the biggest teams but as usually, I trust Sir Alex to deliver these players for us.

sign Tevez and get Ribery and you'll be fine.

Finally! Lets hope we can bring in a top class striker (Eto'o) and a winger who can cross (Ashley Young). Hopefully we do a loan swap with nani for moutinho as well. I kinda wish we had done this deal under the table though, because with everybody knowing you have £80M burning a hole in your back pocket, you can hardly negotiate a fair price, can you?

the only class midfielder that we have and we sell him, although 80 mill just cannot be refused - perhaps we could buy some new legs for Hargreaves

He's the best player in the world. Don't kid yourself. Even with 2 or 3 major signings, losing him will make you a weaker team.

Tevez is on his way as well! Soooo, that's Berba up-front. Mr "nine goals in one season" and Rooney is ummmm, still a good strike force! There's always Danny Welbeck!

Anyway, we know how much it hurts to have Real steal your players. Robben has never really been replaced. Maybe you'll sign him?!

Good riddance. Now we wont have to see the fake dives and the "I'm going to phart in your face" stance when taking free kicks.

Ronaldo is definately irreplaceable. You only have to look at the quality of the wingers our nearest rivals have to count on to see that ronaldo is in a different league; in fact with some of his achievements he seems like he is playing a different sport sometimes. The key to surviving in the post-ronaldo era will not be replacing him, it will be changing the style of play so that we don't need him. We have been unique in the last few years in terms of playing two strikers who get loads of assists and a winger who gets loads of goals. Hopefully, we can turn that situation around and get a winger who gets assists and strikers who score goals. Despite being a tosser, he is a big loss to the league in terms of talent. Of the top 5 players in the world, england now only has one (gerrard) and his position in the top 5 is debateable. (based on the top 5 being Messi, Ronaldo, Kaka, Xavi and Gerrard)
