Ronaldo to Madrid for a record transfer fee.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

He isn't worth half that much money, United have got exactly what they wanted from this transfer, Ferguson always wins in such situations. This is ridiculous really, Kaka wasn't worth his fee either. Another Real Madrid spending era has begun, but they wont come close to the team that the last one produced.

Keep dreaming.

[Edited Out] teams who "win" a Premiership and a Champions League suffer from their successes as they follow up any exceptional success with complete failure the next season. Teams such as Wenger's Arsenal throughout 90's and early 2000's and teams such as Benitez's loserpool in 2005. [Edited Out] teams who "lose" finals and finish runners up in European Cups and Premierships suffer from their failures and follow up with further failure next time round. Teams such as Liverpool in 2007 and 2009 respectively (CL and PL) and teams such as Chelsea 2008, both league and european cup. [Edited Out] teams who lose key players suffer from their losses and simply become [Edited Out]per teams as a result. All such indicators of [Edited Out]ness pertain to the majority of teams in the premiership, including Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal as well as being applicable to major sides right around the globe.

However, United are a side who are exception to the rule as they happen to be a great side. Great sides are teams who win Premiership and then retain it for 3 years plus. Great sides are teams who win Champions League finals and rather than getting dumped out of the first round the following year (as is the tradition of CL winners), reach back to back finals and challenge consistently on three or four fronts every season. Great sides are side teams who when lose their biggest name, reform to emerge a more powerful unit progressing to new heights consistently with newly made stars. United benefitted immediately the year after Ruud Van Nistelrooy left without even having to purchase a replacement (2006). They benefitted immediately after Roy Keane left (2005) replacing him with a mere shadow in Michael Carrick. They benefitted from the sale of David Beckham (2003), merely replacing him with a 17 year old portuguese kid.

Do not be fooled. Regardless of transfer activity, United are by definition a great side. Even if Ronaldo left for free, United would find a way not just to survive but rather thrive in his absence and simply progress in their unrivalled bid to become the greatest ever side since planks law.

As it happens, United have enough transfer budget this summer to buy Newcastle FC. Heck, Ronaldo was sold for more than the cost of the entire Liverpool first 11. United will reinvest their gains wisely to ensure their greatness is given further opportunity to demonstrate its beauty as we move on to our 19th Premiership title.

Leave it out, will ya?! Cantona, Best, Charlton, Beckham, Van Nistelrooy, Keane all left or retired, all replaced. They'll find someone else, just like they always do. No player is bigger than United, you should know that by now.

^^exactly bro...and thw worse thing is that liverpool beat man utd 4-1 the last time they met

Please save yourself the embarrassment and don't say that again. Exactly what impact did that defeat to Liverpool have? None. End of the season, United are champions, not Liverpool.

:!!!:

Thats actually a compliment to Liverpool.

Not if you know what you are talking about.

It is far from a compliment to Liverpool to point out they have spent more on players who operate outside the first 11 than players who do over the last 4-5 years (Robbie Keane as a classic example). Liverpool's net spending vastly exceeds United's over recent years yet the United squad vastly exceeds the Liverpool squad in value and consequently, honours and trophies.

It is not a compliment to suggest that Liverpool's transfer and wage activities are largely funded by increases in debt whilst on the other hand, it is United's debt that is largely funded by successes on the pitch generating record breaking profits allied to sound economic activity with respect to transfers and wages where despite net spending being inferior to the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea, their player value is vastly superior to any other side in the Premier League.

Owing to greatness, United are masters in every aspect of the game and this includes the transfer market as the original poster rightly pointed out. Liverpool fans are encouraged to think twice before celebrating the sale of a player in decline for an astonishing $135 million.

^^exactly bro...and thw worse thing is that liverpool beat man utd 4-1 the last time they met

Man United lost to Liverpool last March in one of their only defeats last season, in the similar way Middlesborough defeated Liverpool in one of their only wins towards the back end of last season. All this tells us as any 10 year old student of the game will point out is that great teams can lose football matches to even the [Edited Out] teams (United losing to Liverpool, Fulham etc), only for such defeats to serve them well in their eventual reclaimation of League titles and that [Edited Out] teams can lose to even the [Edited Out]pest of all teams in England (i.e Liverpool losing to Middlesborough) with the contrasting effect of merely confirming their respective and mutual [Edited Out]ness.

Leagues are won over 38 games, not 1 or 2. Check out Premier League for the last three seasons to check who has the best record over the 38.

Superiority between teams in direct competition is decided by 3,4,5 up to 10 games, not one or two. United have beaten Liverpool some 7 out of the last 10 times they played each other in the Premier League.

But just to serve as a warning, allow me to point out United have been doubled by a [Edited Out] side in each of their last three title winning seasons.

In their first season, they were doubled by Arsenal, only for United to beat them twice the following season. In their second recent title winning season, they were doubled by Man City, only for United to double them the following season (i.e this season). In their third title winning season, United were doubled by Liverpool, and as a United fan we relish the prospect of maintaining tradition of always responding to losses by wins as we are once again likely to witness this time round.

Now i dunno who to support.. ronaldo or Man u :(

Daeumn man!

This choice is representative of the wider choice you face in life. Deciding whether to follow the worldly, greedy, arrogant, insolent, yet superficially sweet and "hotness" of Ronaldo, or the intellectual and spiritual choice of honest, principled, morally driven cause represented by Manchester United. I am sure your indecision here is reflective of wider indecision between these two paths in the wider context.

sat jiii!! the days of man utd are over now... save yourself some tears by supporting liverpool next season.

good teams lose matches.. but the fact that united lost 4-1 to one of their main rivals, who simply outplayed them, was one embarassing moment for the supposed champs

""Leave it out, will ya?! Cantona, Best, Charlton, Beckham, Van Nistelrooy, Keane all left or retired, all replaced. They'll find someone else, just like they always do. No player is bigger than United, you should know that by now.""

ronaldo is at his peak, and its due to his great contribution that has helped united over the past couple of years or soo, while beckham and other stars, by the time they were sold, were not as good.

My point seems to have flown way over your head. We always find the replacements, who are as good or better. Always. Liverpool have been pathetic, and Liverpool fans are all talk. You make yourselves look silly, you really do. Ended the season trophiless and still gloat over nothing.
