    every one in england says he's the best player ever, maybe even better than maradona and pele. they preformed in the big games;
    when has he, never is right. can u english people not see he only plays well against ur watfords and shefields etc

    I'm not championing Ronaldo here, let's get that right for a start.
    However, the lad has a hell of a lot of potential, he's still very young, and his time will come... it's wrong to exect too much from him at this stage of his career...

    When he's been around a bit, and fulfilled his potential, he could possibly then be quoted in the same sentence as Pele...

    FYI - He didn't get any change out of Rob Kozluk when we played them at Old Trafford.

    I think he's had an incredible season considering the public feeling for him after last summers Euro Championships... full credit to the lad for turning things around.

    I'm not standing up for him, I'm just pointing out how ridiculous you are when you talk of (and for) your countrymen.

    But you're just a kid that's been hit in the head one time too many.

    Ronaldo has had a fantastic season, but he faded away for Manchester Uniteds in our last 8 games.

    Hs has made so much progress in one year that he has the potential to be the best in the world in maybe 2 or 3 years time, especially if United sign new players and Rooney continues to improve, so he can play with class players.

    Without Ronaldo United would have finished about 10 points behind Chelsea this season I think.

    Also many top players suffered from poor finishes to the season like Ronaldo, Lampard, Terry, Gerrard?, Drogba.

    Maybe the world cup along with fighting for 4 competitions has taken too much out of some players this season.

    Ronaldo is no Maradonna and never will be, but he's made amazing progress and if if does continue to improve he will end up being a leading player in Europe.

    Champoins League 1/4 final 2nd leg.
    Manchester United start game 1-2 after 1st leg.
    Driving force behind 7-1 destruction of Roma.
    Sets up 1st goal for Carrick with great skill to take pressure off United in the 1st 10 minutes.
    Scores amazing 4th goal the kills the game for Roma (the 2nd or 3rd best team in Italy?)

    even when our Ronnie has a dull game he still has to be carefully marked
