this will probably be the end of his career.
he was one of my idols as a kid :(
I'm a fucking detective, me.
i thought you might've mean wet head ronaldo not tubby ronaldo
is horrific :(
as World Cup 2002 mind. Do you mind laughing at all the kids who shaved their heads except the fringe?
THAT's football? :O
that's not Ronaldo, it's Chris Kamara.
was an incredible player at his peak.
but not really a massive suprise.
In his prime, he was one of the best strikers I have ever seen.
to finish his career at the end of the season?
"I heard a horrible sound, like a bang, it was a strange sound"
if a bone breaks, i imagine there might be a bang, but a TENDON? fuck me, that's painful just thinking about it
its just the mere thought of a body part popping. Its just made me feel a bit queasy.
i was getting defensive. but yeah, it's a distinctly icky thought
Ronaldo at his best was a phenomenal player...
The greatest player of our generation? Discus.
Zidane was better.
wasn't my generation. I would have been 3 at the height of his powers.
Zidane was consistently awesome, whereas Ronaldo (mainly due to injuries and obesity) was only sporadically so. However, during these phases (i.e. at Barca, and at points whilst with Real and AC), Ronaldo was literally untouchable.
The football romantic inside of me says Ronaldo, just because he was slightly less head-butt prone and a more adept purveyor of the beautiful game (i guess through his role in the team and the fact that he's Brazilian)...
first you stick up for Iniesta, now you slag off Luis Figo? :(
just said zidane was better
why am i so tetchy today?
calling zidane a better player than figo is slagging him off. Zidane was the greatest player of our generation.
Bergkamp>>>>>>Figo as well btw.
bergkamp was nearly the best player i've ever seen
the best player I have ever seen at arsenal. And yes, that means Bergkamp>>>>Henry
but defo better
dunno why? he's obviously brilliant, but theres something about the way he plays that wasnt as nice to watch as say rivaldo or zidane
because I am left footed.
between 1998 and 2003?
There it goes
There it goes again
Ronaldo is in pain
And Milan can complain
His knee's broken again
so ronaldo isnt fat anymore then?
he'd really worked hard on his fitness over the last few months, so for this to happen to him now is even more terrible. i can't see him going through another 18 months of recovery and fitness work.
