Love it. Keep em coming. Man Utd cant sell Ronaldo considering his form at the moment tho. That would be all but conceding the title...in fact probably not considering the chelsea turmoil. Still tho hes the only reason i rarely watch an EPL game
the Ronaldo transfer is for the summer, fergie wont sell him until then, but me beeing a die hard man.utd fan i would only sell him for a world record transfer fee plus players and were talkin stupid money here.
Yeah but i really dont think they can afford to lose him. He and giggs are the only real players i see trying to make something of the game (and rooney when hes not busy smashing glass bottles over opposition heads). He tries so hard to get things happening, like beckham did with his passing, ronaldo does with his dribbling to get the fans excited and get united to a goal-scoring opportunity. With giggs getting no younger (tho still playing great and willing to play on for a few seasons more) and quite a boring midfield otherwise i dont think they can afford to let him go, unless they splash the cash on a risky replacement. If it aint broke dont fix it, no matter how much theyr paying
