Wanker....a shadow of his former self.
But I have to say in my opinion the greatest player ever.

Only ever saw the end of Pele's career.
Johan Cruyff was special....but Ronaldo comes up trumps time and time again.
He never chokes, never bottles it.

Yes, he's good but Twinkle Toes is also a cheat.

And a horrible person.

You know where my unflinching support and loyalties lie......

But being realistic I can only see us reaching the Quarters, Semi Final at best.
Same old problem; a superbly talented squad but Southgate far too negative and incapable of adjusting tactics during games etc.
And defensively we aren't too clever.
Hopefully they'll prove me wrong......

I am also firmly in the 'Anyone but Argentina' camp.

Yes, he is a cheat - not in the magnitude of that horrible, little fat Argie - but a cheat nonetheless.

Ronaldo is incredibly self-absorbed, but I can't help but appreciate his footballing talent.
He's never shirked a challenge and absolutely ALWAYS delivered the goods.

Not the sort of person I'd choose to go for a pint with but......

For sheer consistency hard work and talent I'd go for Kevin de Bruyne

De Bruyne is a great player.....but hasn't won anything apart from The English Premiership etc.

Look at Ronaldo's record with United, Real, Juventus and Portugal.
And he does it in BIG games time and time again.

We've been fortunate to witness some truly great players in our time, some have lasted at the top for only a few years and some longer.
Ronaldo's longevity is remarkable.

Alright mate.
I totally agree that Ronaldo is the GOAT. He does it whenever he plays. He has now scored in 5 WC tournaments.

Ghana players need to check their studs ffs. Woulda been a legendary goal.

Good to see you mate.

That would have been incredible wouldn't it.....the reaction of Ronaldo would have been truly priceless.

I'm looking forward to watching Brazil tonight.
I can't see past them winning it but at 7/2 they were far too tight a price.
I've backed The Netherlands at 14/1 to win it and 13/2 to get to the final.
I also had smaller wagers on Uruguay to win it at 50/1 and 20/1 to get to the final.

Early days.

I also bet on Uruguay at 50/1. Crazy. I put a fiver each way so 25/1 to get to the final. Ladbrokes.
Put a few quid on Portugal at 14/1 too.

Half time Brazil match they are sheeeite so far. Dreadful.

Spain - Costa Rica 7:0 devastation, we will play against Spain on Sunday, does not look good for Germany in this world cup. Maybe we need to fall hard to get back again, I think that lesson is needed. Where is the innovation from before we won the world cup??

Good luck, mate.

Looking forward to the inevitable semi final against Germany and losing on penalties!

Ah Wales, wtf. Couldnt score in a brothel. Bale looking like a liability.

I read today that Neymar is out for the rest of the group games. The next two matches. Brazil were much better when he was taken off the other night. Much better. Seems he's similar to Bale in that he has to start but everyone knows they're better without him.

Looking forward to USA humiliating England once again a la 1950.
Nah i jest. Its not gonna happen again. Not tonight anyway. Sure its not. Is it?

"And he does it in BIG games time and time again."

Except when his Manager wants him to come off the bench and he flounces off in a hissy fit?

Not this time Carpy, not this time. I wish my country would get that far but not seeing it happening at all.

If not Germany, who will we lose to on penalties in the semi?

Yeah your next game is a huge one. Yiz gotta get a result. Its kinda weird not looking at Germany as one of the favourites. Because they always in my lifetime anyway, been right up there in terms of who can win it.
Transition period maybe?
