Goodbye Winker!

News reached us this afternoon that Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to be moving from rain lashed Manchester to Madrid. He's the latest in a long line of 'Galacticos' to drive their luxury motors into the players car park at Real Madrid. 

£80 million pounds? Is ANYTHING worth £80 million? Maybe Kent or Somerset but a PERSON? The world has gone cuckoo.

I won't try to put forward an argument that Ronny isn't a fantastic player with superlative skills.
 Unfortunately, his skills,- especially his powerful shot and the ability to hit top pace within 5 strides aren't enough for me.

 I just can't stand him. 

He has the ability to turn a game, single handedly, with his fleet footed abilities. Why resort to diving and trying to con the referee?

Now, if only we could get rid of Didier Drogba, I would be able to sit through Match Of The Day without wanting to kick the screen.

Cristiano Ronaldo - Casual Rating.

Despite officially being one of the top 3 players on the planet, there's not going to be any tears from me when he leaves.

I'm rating him as a superbly well made, perfectly fitting, limited edition green 'Fila BJ' tracktop. These articles of clothing are legendary and if you have one it really is almost one of a kind. 
The Ronaldo version is all of the above with a a great dollop of bird poo running down the shoulder as a metaphor for his flawed character.

Ronaldo is a wonderful player but he had made few friends here.

Marco - You could buy a former PL club, settle it's debt, rebuild the side, finish the stadium and run it for ten years with £80m! Dave.

But if Charlton Athletic in a parallel universe were buying him I bet you would forgive his diving and tantrams I know i would.

You might be right Colin.
It's fairly easy to sit here holding the moral high ground when our best player should still be worrying about his paper round and if he'll ever get a girlfriend.
