Why I'm teary eyes reading this and all those flashbacks with Ronaldo haunting me.Wow i still can't believe it, i was updating our site and Fabrizios when "BOOOOM", we announced that the deal was a Here we go!" - and i just frozed up and couldn't move or say anything for at least 2 min before starting to laugh like a moron and my wife asked me what was going. And when i told here she ran to me and just hugged me and I got tear my eyes, and i looked at her and she had tears as well, we both just looked at each other with tears in our eyes for a minute before starting to sing "Viva Ronaldo" and i can't remember football made me so happy. No matter the results of this transfer, no matter trophies, how many goals/assists he provides - this is so much bigger! Cirkel of life. I just want to say that I love all you United fans, the club, SAF, the players, Ole and football! In hard times, somehow, it can always make you happy - and i am so grateful my father introduced me to this wonderful sport and specielly this amazing team almost 30 years ago. I really hope every person has a passion for something in life, besides the obvious things like family, friends etc, like we real football fans do.
Once again, thank you Manchester United for everything.
Allegri has had fall out with different players throughout his managerial career. He and Ronaldo seem to have fallen out. After sacking Allegri, Juventus couldn't replace him. Now he's back, they think it's better to end Ronaldo project, so they can rebuild.Why did he want to leave Juve? Did something go wrong there?
Yeah and when they signed him they would have worked out his wages and what they could afford etc etc. Then covid happened...I think he moved to Juventus and the Serie A to win a CL with a team from there.
That was not going to happen. I also think Juventus couldn't afford him anymore. Alongside him being subbed out quite some times - think he just felt it was the time.
There was a aftermath video from Fab after Ronaldo transfer where he describes initially why Ronaldo wanted to leave Juv. Basically they promised a top team around him when he initially came and first year backed it up with MDL. Last season they were supposed to bring in Pogba but covid struck and their finances dropped significantly. This season the only incoming has been Locatelli and that did not move well with Ronaldo. So he wanted to look for options.Why did he want to leave Juve? Did something go wrong there?
No doubt. His level of professionalism is high and with smart management, he will be able to perform highly for a while still.I think he will play until 40yo, and still will probably be banging in 20+ goals a season. Not saying that will be for us though ha.
People get too hooked up on ages these days, which is weird as its not the beer swilling 1960's anymore. Ronaldo will do the business for us.
And he chose the toughest league to come to. That tells me he's hungry to show he's still got it, and is up for the challenge.No doubt. His level of professionalism is high and with smart management, he will be able to perform highly for a while still.
Multiple souces including the Athletic Exclusive are reporting Juve were always adamant on a fee because they wanted to offset some of his existing deal (on his 2nd last year), and City were willing to pay it - before United swooped in.Makes you wonder why we had to pay a transfer fee. City were trying to sign him on a free by all accounts.
So signing Ronaldo makes OGS a coward? Get a grip mate, we just re-signed a former United great and still one of the best at what he does in the business. If this is your reaction to that, where do you find any enjoyment in football as a whole?This is the biggest mistake this club can make. We already have an ageing Cavani, now an ageing Ronaldo. What happens to Mason now? Reduced playing time.
I have felt for a while now that OGS is a coward. He keeps giving young plyers 1 or 2 isolated games. Apart from Mason 9 an exceptional talent) he has not given anyone else a long run. Elenga had a great pre season but James is still given time ahead of him, same for Diallo. Even OGS must reliase that that Lingard can never be a part of a PL or CL winning team, so why is he playing. Why was he a sub against Saints while Hannibal was not even on the bench.
I can see in a couple of years
Mason asking for a transfer as he is not getting playing time
Hannibal, Elanga, Diallo doing a Pogba and going off to Dortmund or Juve or Leipzig
We are going backwards not forwards. I have followed United since the early fifties and apart from when we were relegated I cannot remeber a time when I felt we were making so many mistakes as now, given the money were are spending
I had to deal with a bunch of sour faces at work. I have coworkers from Liverpool, Chelsea , City and Spurs. They know what's bound to happen now so they're not too happy.I was pinching and slapping myself in work today, at one point genuinely thought I was dreaming
Same..It's 2 am and I'm still going strong.I can't sleep heart rate been up since the morning!
I won'tDon't. You'll wake up to Gaitan joining United.
