P'd me off today. Felt his touch was off. But, if you ever want someone to win you a game it's Ronaldo.
Yeah he didn't have a good game on that level, definitely. Wasn't on his game tonight, his feet looked slippery on first touch.Sure, but we're talking first half hour here. Plenty of simple errors he never used to make.
This is all I ever said about him and people believe I had an issue about him.He’s playing against players who in some cases he’s technically old enough to have fathered…
He should be an impact sub, not having the team built around him.
Eh I mean, that's the thing with this guy at his age. He produces the goods even when his moment to moment football isn't up there. And it's not like its sporadic either, not the first time he's had a mare and scores one or two goals and the end result is points/win.The scary thing is that he had a bad game but still managed to get the penalty and finished it nicely. It might look ugly, but he has won the game for us again.
He was appalling, as were all United's attackers. His penalty shouldn't cover up his poor performance.A player who wins the game gets this criticism is disgusting.
Blame the other players. He score a penalty which isn't easy you know!? Scapegoat
He saved United from disaster with a pressure penalty . Give him credit.
Agreed.He was bad, but the game he tried playing isn’t his game.
He needs to stick to being a penalty box poacher, playing on the shoulder.
He’s dropping deep way too much and it’s a mistake. He’s not very good at shielding the ball or holding it up and him coming back trying to do it is just a recipe for failure.
100% this.His old legs are struggling to keep up with the pace of the premier league unfortunately, I saw it against Palace and the same today. He needs to be used more sparingly, maybe a sub in the league and starting the CL games.
Exactly. Ronaldo is a United legend. And he's been our best player this season. Has 1 rare bad game and peoples first reaction is to blame Ronny is bizarre and seems agenda driven when the other players have been poor all season and poor tonight. He saved United tonight.. he misses that penalty we don't win. Massive pressure he was under and he delivered he loves United.Odd reaction here today. Not at his best at all but the supporting cast were even worse and he's now at a point where he needs them to perform and to feed him. Whether he's what we need in that position at the mo is a different argument (I would never say no to having him in the side) but to focus on him in a game where there were far worse performances seems odd to me.
