FFS the amount of people slating him on this site, many being United fans, is shocking. Let us consider: A) His dad died a few weeks ago this alone should have people lay off the kid, do people somehow think this doesn't affect him deeply even now?.....but noooo! Kick him whilst he's down? B) He had a rape case, media exposure and a lot of BS to deal with in the last few weeks.... C) He is 20 years old. By default that means he is allowed to make mistakes and have poor games. D) He was never fully intergrated into our team in the first place. Why is it that now 'all of a sudden' people wish to call him on this? Tied to point C you'd have to be retarded not to understand why when things are going wrong for him, morseo than any other player we have it sticks out like a sore thumb. He deserves stick for this? E) Before he signed the new deal the same people slating him now were begging for him to sign.. how can you do a 180 within a few weeks? F) He has shown in glimpses from his first season thru to Euro 2004 and WC qualifying for Portugal and even last year for us what a talent he is. He hasn't 'all of a sudden' become a bad player...let us consider points A B C and D again shall we G) Ronaldo is not the player to look for when the team is in dire straights. He is not 'the one' who will lead a team out of troubles and into the light. Do you know...I feel I could do a whole alphabet here please use this thread as reference for idiots across big soccer who feel the need to slate a 20yr old who is having the worst calender year of his entire life! that is all.
