    Great to be able to watch Ronaldo play in this country again.

    Nice try, Cristiano.

    A recent high-water mark for Forest, I feel.
    What about the Brian Clough trophy last Saturday?

    I understand he's not everyone's cup of tea, but he's one of the best and most entertaining players to watch, and that's what I want.

    It sure beats watching Forest defend a 2-1 defeat, anyway.

    Watching Messi & Ronaldo live should be on every football fans bucket list. There won't be 2 like those for a long long time.

    To be fair to him he's still at it at the very top level at 36 and that's because he keeps his sen fit & is 100% committed to draining every last drop out of his playing career

    Some half arsed younger players would do well to take a leaf out of his book

    he's still a bellend though & I hope it goes tits up at Man U

    Same here. My mate who works for the port police gets himself in a right fluster at the mention of his name.

    Totally agree, I think CR (based on his antics with Man U and against England) is almost the textbook example of a twunt

    But, he is dedicated to keeping himself in the required condition and improving which is why he has become one of the best ever to play the game.

    Zlatan is another one, even at the age of 40, who’s still worth watching because he does stuff that seemingly nobody else can.

    He also has an ego the size of a planet, which is also quite fun.

    The guff on ssn about Ronaldo is hilarious. He left United and spent his prime winning trophies elsewhere. He’s still a world class striker but he’s not the same player he was before.

    It’s worth noting that Man Utd have almost 3 teams worth of senior players, most of which are internationals. You wouldn’t think it with their fans constant complaints about not signing players.

    I hope Ronaldo has a shite season and it blows up in their ungrateful faces.

    On a side note… the SSN presenter saying “happy deadline day to you” to Jamie Carragher is both tragic and vomit inducing at the same time.

    Gone off after 5 minutes.

    We said that about Pele, then Cruyff, then Maradona.

    Every era has it's greats. Messi and Ronaldo are this era's.

    There will be someone along to replace them soon enough.

    He was tripe for Juve last year. Like playing with ten men was said more then once.

    I'd stick our Robbo on that list for a few seasons. Anyone who disagrees didn't see him play in his heyday.

    I wish our strikers were tripe to the tune of nearly a goal a game in all competitions

    I think Messi & Ronaldo are still a level above anybody simply because they have both pushed each other to unthinkable levels. They will have had 20 years of dominance by the time both retire.

    Even with Maradonna you got 4 or 5 years.

    I don't think anyone will come close to those 2 for a very very long time.

    Or to put it another way, he scored 2 goals against the teams that can be considered any good (top 5) and one of those was a penalty.

    Not just football. I know he's injured at the moment but Federer is still a top 10 player at the age of 40. In fact Domi Thiem is the only Grand Slam winner amongst the male tennis players who is under 30, which is around the age which in previous generations would be considered past it. Sampras, Agassi and even Henman didn't really play much into their 30s. Yet Frderer, Nadal (35), Djokovic and Murray (34 - Andy would be there without his hip issues) and Wawrinka (36) who are the only multiple GS winners since 2003 are still at the top of the game.

    Though the nextgen players seem to be threatening to get in all the time they never quite manage it really. You'd still expect Nole to be the US winner really unless anything mad happens and that would mean he has won all 4 slams in the same year.

    Given that the top sports people at any level if they are dedicated enough look after themselves this might not be a blip.

    I agree with this. My favourite to watch was Ronaldinho. Could do anything with a football and did it all with a smile on his face. When you look at the other players around during his era too it was overloaded with superhuman talent.

    There will be others when they finish. they have been the superstars during a scientific data analysis and social media era. My money is on someone like Haaland next, or someone we haven't even heard of yet outside of Football Manager nerds (who correctly predicted how good Messi would become way back when)

    Zlatan's mere presence seemed to galvanise an up until then, frankly shit Milan team. Obviously it was his coaching, demands on those around him and expectations that made everyone else up their game but it was impressive to see.

    I wanted no part of the signing too. Shows what I know.

    Comical penalty by Fernandes. Can't remember seeing one that bad for a while.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .
