Shame at such a young age but hopefully he will learn loads from the Master himself
Oh, at 40, that seems impossible for his position. It's not like he's a goalkeeperRonaldo is just a once in a generation player, no-one is topping his international record for a long long time - if ever. And I doubt he will be stopping any time soon, can still see him playing for Portugal at 40.
He's not just any ordinary player though. He looks after himself, is in extremely good condition and adapts his game to deal with the fact he is ageing. I think he'll play at a high level beyond 40. Giggs did. Now ok Giggs retired from international football but I think Ronaldo is on another level altogether. Ronaldo is the Brady of soccer.Oh, at 40, that seems impossible for his position.

As for the record, I completely agree with you.
To accommodate Ronaldo we would need a second person up front. That would mean either dropping Bruno or changing formationHe certainly wasn’t part of the plan a panic signing to stop him joining City.
I don’t think Utd can play this way with him in the team he needs a Rooney type near him that can buzz around and do the hard work that he can’t do and Bruno isn’t that.

Unfortunately the team aren't creating a lot of chances for him though so he's on a bit of a hiding to nothing.He offers little else to the team if he’s not scoring goals. He’s now a bit like Hernandez with inferior work rate. His ability to link play is poor and the quality of his first touch is inconsistent. He is no longer suited to a counter attacking tactic.
Last night he was a lot better that he'd been in the last few games and he obvious had his hero moment but you do need more from your centre forward.
He'll be dissapointing with the one on one he missed as well took it beatifully just didn't get the accuracy on the finish and someone needs to have a word on free kicks.
That Zapata that came on is nowhere near the ability of Ronaldo but his movement caused us loads of problems when he came on.
Funnily enough my brother, huge huge United fan, was texting me moments before asking why he was still on the pitch. I said because he scores big goals. And with that Ronaldo stepped up.Champions League: Man Utd 3-2 Atalanta
Today is why you play him and keep him on the pitch. Also absolutely busted a gut in that second half.
