oh come on. That's not a one-match thing.

I am totally biased off course. I just cannot disconnect Ronaldo's performance from how he appears to be as a person.

Personally I can’t stand Ronaldo. However he is now at his peak while Messi’s glory days are over. He should have stayed in retirement.

More than 4000 life saving pediatric surgeries payed by him directly, 1250 jobs just in Portugal directly payed by his enterprises in Portugal. He also spent more hours than any football player ever in fan meetings and autograph signing sessions.

Every coach says he is the first to arrive at any given training session, and the last to leave.

Several players report seeing him training with the kids after his training sessions.

Yes, he earns a lot of money, and he isn´t exactly modest, but I wouldn´t be either after his career. He has broken almost every record you can think of and, at 33, he has the physical condition of a 26/27 year old player.

What do you see in him that makes you dislike him? Arrogance? cos I can see where that comes from, but I can give you a whole lot o examples of how he is diabolized by the Catalunya press, the same way Messi is by the pro-Real Madrid press.

By the way, he played for 3 clubs in all his career. He is loyal, that is for sure.

In his peak? Glory days over?! Numbers would argue otherwise.

To me it just feels like Messi doesn't give 2 shits about his national team, that's all, they must have a really shitty team spirit or something, ARG would have lost against any other half decent team today.

Ronaldo might be a skilled football beast (I'll give him that), but I can't stand him. That last freekick foul yesterday was an acting masterclass too.

Just like LeBron in basketball, a beast and probably best player, but can't really stand him.

 

Not talking about off the pitch personas at all, talking strictly about players during a match.

I’m just glad I’m alive to be able to see both Messi and Ronaldo play the sport at their level.

Transfers weren't working last night for me, but worked today.

They may be still available today, not really sure how the lockout works.

And, yesterday Layun and Matic saved me from falling from 1st....But. today, my only player is Courtois. I hope he does good, but several English and Belgium players there, so Losing 1st is almost guaranteed. Good luck everyone.

It’s safe to tell them today. It’s too late to transfer the big guns into the team 😂

Oh dear, my league position shows how out of touch I am with football. Years of supporting Sunderland have taken their toll.
