I was thinking this too, we looked a little too eager to find Ronaldo everytime.And yet, having said all that, it felt like we were looking for him too much. Plenty of balls jacked in his direction that he wasn't really going to win (Shaw in particular) instead of playing our football and working a better chance, or getting the ball to Ronaldo and then pausing to admire a job well done instead of getting alongside him in support.
People talk like he's slowed down. I don't think he has really. I mean OK perhaps he's lost a little but he's still really fast. He just knows now that he's got to manage his body and manage his workload that's all it is. To get through a full season and to still play a key role in key moments he knows he can't do what he used to.Ronaldo also had the fastest sprint of the afternoon.
Quick question amigos.
Do u ever wonder when The Man has the ball at his feet in the box with 3 defenders blocking his route to goal, what his teammates scream to make him aware of their availability?
Can't be Christiano surely, too many syllables.
Chris? CR? Or maybe just God?
