Anyone signed Ronaldo in the game? I did in my Liverpool game but shocked though he wouldnt come because he may have had the reds under disliked clubs guess not i payed 109mill to get how much have people paid for him ?

I bought him for my Man Utd team after second season for 90 mil, transfer my eventually rise to 109 mil.

Ok I might say i started a save with Real Madrid he plays absolutely brilliant 23 games 15 goals 10 assists.

But i would never give 90 mil for a single player.

Fabio MVP
09-04-2010, 10:30
I would. He is the best in game. And the way he can contribute is out standing. I first 4 matches he scored 6 goals and had 4 assists IIRC.

I've signed Ronaldo and he wasn't very good.

Cristiano Ronaldo however wouldn't be worth the money imo.

Surley he made a joke, right? Because he is not stupid to think that someone would pay for the Fat One 109 mil.

I've got a game as Real at the moment, C. Ronaldo is utter class. 7 games, 8 Goals and 7 assists. Taking teams apart left right and center. I've also signed the original Ronaldo for Q.P.R once, along with Vieri, they banged in about 70 goals between them one the way to getting me promoted in my first season, but thats another story.

Yah, the asking price at the game start for him is like 500+Million. I remember I checked once on FMRTE a long time ago.

Anyway in one of my Holidayed games, Werder Bremen signed him on a pre-contract! http://community.sigames.com/images/smilies/eek.gif

I never even consider signing him, for 120 million I could still get a world class starting 11 and probably even facility upgrades.

Plus I don't like him, would only sign him if he was going for free and all my players that play in his positions all had broken legs.

I signed salvio for 4m and Afellay for 9m and now they're both on the clubs favoured personnel list after both being nothing short of magical and now Barca are chasing Salvio.

In life yes, I played him at Dinamo Buc. for a season after which he retired 15 games 9 goals. you might say it's not bad but, 3 where penalty's I can't say i was disappointed though he came to an eastern European club.

But for say Premier League, Seria A, Primera Division he won't cut it anymore.

I've re-trained C. Ronaldo to play as a striker (I think he starts off as competent, or accomplished?) and he was electric, easily the best striker on that particular game.

I hate it that these days whenever you search for ronaldo, cristiano comes up. CR7 is a very talented footballer but he will never be close to R9. For those of you who need a memory refresh or those who were to young when the true ronaldo was in his prime here's a reminder:

Nah. Messi is absolutely unbelievable if you get him playing and the team playing properly. I'd take him over Ronaldo any day.

So would I. I never have much of a liking for ex Man U players anyway, but Messi is light years ahead when he enjoys your system.

I've just signed him on a free transfer on my game, he was released after his contract expired. (First time i have signed him on FM10)

http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/4729/87835993.png


He doesn't look that impressive at the moment, but about 15-20 clubs had offered him a contract including West Ham, AC Milan, ..etc.

http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/5004/12180560.jpg


I managed to get him by offering him more than what he was requesting and a large signing on fee, i'm fair chuffed with this signing. :)
Maybe now he can help me beat my highest place finish of 10th in the Premier League. :thup:

I'd have him on a free, but I'd never pay for him. I really dislike anyone who is successful at Man U or Real Madrid. Childish, perhaps, but I just can't get away with either club.

BroxBorough
08-09-2010, 13:55
I've never signed him on any of my saves, seen him leave Madrid a couple of times though. Once to join Arsenal (can't remember the price, was less than the 80M Madrid had paid) 5 or 6 seasons into the game and the other time to City, 5 months into the first season for 64M, he'd played just 13 times for Madrid scoring 8 goals :S

I bought him for 17.5m as a 32 year old, simply because i had never used him before and even at that age he dominated in the Premier League, Scored his 1st goal in a home debut against Manchester United :D

Emiloprisa - That Video is class i forgot how Good Ronaldo was back in the day!

Yeh nice vid, in my eyes brazilian ronaldo was the best ronaldo. To win FIFA player of the year twice, come second, get injured for 3 years and win it again first year comeback is just insanity. For me he had likeability aswell which whining cristiano lacks unless you're a Man U or Real fan. Just my opinion though.

Barkermush
08-09-2010, 14:42
Oh yeah, i forgot about fat Ronaldo. :)

He was a great finisher, the best finisher in the World back in his prime..?

But he just got real lazy.

boroboy87
08-09-2010, 14:51
One of the best finishers and the ball somehow glued to his feet :) I'm not entirely sure wether he was lazy or scared of injury, seeing as though any strenous activity such as a small jump and his knee fell off.

And on topic, I wouldn't sign cristiano ronaldo, purely because I can't sign people I don't like, and he costs waaay too much, so I just go for neymar instead :D

Alan A Wadge
08-09-2010, 15:17
I signed him for chelsea as a 33 year old free transfer. Played in as a striker and he was fantastic, 29 goals in the premier league in his first year and over 100 goals in 3 seasons!!! Not a bad signing for a 33 year old!

I have had an offer of 120 million accepted but decided to buy Pique, Pepe and David Villa instead. If the save had of not been deleted I would have bid for him the following season. Scored 49 goals in 40 games for my Madrid side at AMC, I think he is the best attacking player on the game along with Sergio Aguero.

I totally agree with you The real Ronaldo was the best player in my generation....

To be honest i think the majority of players from Fat Ronaldo's Era were altogether more 'magical' with a football, I miss the likes of Zidane, Figo, Rivaldo, Davids, Cantona, Gazza, Vieri, Romario, Bebeto, Del Piero & Roberto Carlos and the likes, Infact thinking about it the Brazil team was pretty special in all positions at that time, which is in stark contrast to the quality of their team today!

The brazilian will always be better. Cristiano dives too much, complains and is selfish.
I would not see him get past the injuries the real Ronaldo had. And win the World Cup after it in dominant fashion.

Ronaldo, in his Barcelona days, was astonishingly fast. Not even Usain Bolt would have beaten him in a race.
Oh, and Ronaldo would run a with ball, while racing Bolt, and still win. And I didn't mention anything about his dribbling and finishing ability.

Having hots for him?

The thing is CR would most probably never get injured like that as he is psyhicaly far more superior the Nazario de Lima. As for attacking instincts Ronaldo is untouchable, but overraly I think CR is more complete footballer. Let alone nowadys it's much harder to do things that Ronaldo did before and CR still manages to do almost the same things.

Oh, and CR is faster then Ronaldo when both in their prime. Anyway, I honestly do think that Ronaldo is the best attacking players of all time.

I don't know how old you are but i have seen both in action and i can tell you that Ronaldo will always be from my point of view the best player i have ever seen live. As fof the CR psyhically superior stuff it's rubbish. Ronaldo ran just as fast but was much more masive that CR. And remember Ronaldo still plays today and scores plenty eventhough he is overweight and played at the highest level until 2008. The game hasn't changed that much since 2008.

Truth be told, watching that video made me realize how dreadful the defenders of that era were. They all seemed to lack the decisiveness to stop him. If you want to stop him, dive in. Don't just run backwards in front of him like a moving pylon dressed up in a shirt and shorts. If any of them had the stones to just dive in, they might have been able to leave the field with at least a margin of pride that they at least tried to stop him.

Still, some of those finishes were brilliant, dodgy defending or not.

Too bad they didn't have you on the sidelines giving them lessons in defending. It's so easy to stop Ronaldo, but they were just mere clueless professional footballers. You'd think they learned how defend from a blind monkey with two broken legs.

Oh bravo! Sarcasm! My goodness, what a beautiful post.

I'll start by drawing your attention to the goal scored at ~1:00 into the clip. Ronoldo legitimately beats the first two defenders, but the third defender in his path gets caught flat-footed and with his body twisted-- before Ronaldo even taps the ball past him. Poor positioning, poor agility, poor decision making. Furthermore, no one ever tracks the second attacker who goes to the right... in fact, #3 on the defending team stops running before the goal is even scored. Professional footballers indeed.

The next few goals are beautiful pieces of individual skill, and then we come to the goal scored at ~2:20 into the clip. Not a single defender tracks the run, plus there is an attacker in an offside position when the through-ball is played, and a case could be made that the goal should have been whistled dead. Again, more sloppy defending.

In the goal scored at ~2:38, given that there were four defenders around him, including one who was further ahead of him, one of the four should have brought him down and conceded the free kick, given that it could have been done >30 yards from goal. Given the likelihood of scoring from there, I'd take a yellow card in exchange for dramatically reducing the likelihood of a goal being scored.

I'll pause now, so that you can build up your reserves of sarcasm before you ineffectually unleash them again. Much love.

Since i had a discussion these past days about Ronaldo i decided to start a career as the Corinthians manager and see if i manage to get him to play at least to some degree like he did in the good old days. I was not dissapointed. Although not the genius he was before he still is a top class striker. Here's a screenshot half through the season:

http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h123/emil_ecd/FM10/th_ronaldo.jpg (http://s63.photobucket.com/albums/h123/emil_ecd/FM10/?action=view&current=ronaldo.jpg)

I managed to extend his contract for another 5 years and though it's pretty expensive there is no replacement for the feeling i have every time he scores. It brings back beautiful memories from my youth when i stayed glued to the TV, with a R9 shirt on to see him play for Barca, Inter and Brazil. He never dissapointed me back then either. He is the main reason i fell in love with the beautiful game.

Cheers!

As good as the highlights of his goals are, the videos on youtube still don't do him justice. Watching him play for a full game in his prime was amazing. I'd actually say he was better than the likes of Pele, Maradona, Cruyff and Zidane during those years, its so sad that he hit his prime by the time he was 22 and just seemed to turn into a joke in the eyes of most people towards the end of his career.
