Ronaldo The Best, Again

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the third player in the history of the Premiership to have won the Player of the Month award for two consecutive months.

Manchester United's Portuguese winger dazzled everyone with his outstanding displays and free-scoring form in December and it's no surprise he got Barclay's monthly award again, having secured it in November, too.

Only two previous players managed to win the award in two consecutive months and they are Robbie Fowler and Dennis Bergkamp. In terms of consecutive awards Ronaldo has left behind the likes of Eric Cantona, Alan Shearer or Thierry Henry who never managed to put together two such magnificent months in a row during their illoustrious career.

Ronaldo earned a dubious penalty at Middlesbrough, scored the final and decisive goal in the Manchester derby then he scored braces against Aston Villa, Wigan and Reading. His displays were largely responsible for United's successful festive period and he deserves most of the credit for our current six-point advantage.

'I am really pleased to win this award for the second month in a row,' Ronaldo told ManUtd.com.

'December was a busy and crucial period for us. The whole team is playing well at the moment and I am enjoying every minute of it. Let's hope we can continue our good work.'

Congratulations, Cristiano! It really could not go to anyone else this time.

An amazing player with so much skill.Remember all the idiots that said he was a one trick wonder!!!!It was wonderful to see him at Roots Hall and I think we must be one of the only clubs this season to keep him faily quiet.Although it did take our keeper to make at least two amazing saves from him.Cheers

Essien is hardly an unsung hero... he's been praised throughout the last 4 months... deservedly, of course, he's the one who keeps Chelsea in the title race.

Although I watch Championship football until next year when it will probably be 1st division football I try to watch as much premiership as possible.What I have seen is that Ronaldo has been heads and tails above anyone else.Essien too has been great but I wouldn't say he is unsung.What about players like Bentley for Blackburn or Arteta for Everton?

Bentley is a bit up-and-down at times, not the most consistent performer but he's capable of scintillating displays. Arteta is brilliant, managed to soften the blow of Tim Cahill's injury for Everton. I thought they would go into freefall without the Australian but they coped magnificently.

I still stand firm.. he's a very technically gifted player and has the ability to disguise what he's doing. If he cuts out the cheating he'll be brilliant and earn himself a heck of a lot more respect.
