A poster above expressed a dislike for fantasy football. I still loves it even after nearly 30 years of playing it.

No problem with fantasy football myself, what grips my shit is people who think others are going to be interested in their lineup

People are interested in eachothers line ups, you aren't and that's fine, but why should it annoy you?

I read that as resigned rather than re-signed and was left slightly puzzled.

I watched the last 15 minutes or so of the Portugal v Ireland game last night. (the wife is Irish so had a small interest) When I switched it on Ronaldo had gone down as if an Irish defender had caught him in the face. Seamus Coleman wasn't happy about it and said something to Ronaldo - I assume it was for him to stop milking it - Ronaldo threw his arms in the air and you could almost visually sense he wasn't going to take any of that shit.

After that, he was coming deep, starting attacks and needless to say he scored the equaliser with a solid header on 89 minutes and with literally the last action in the match, scored another header. I am no fan at all of him but on the pitch he is phenomenal.

I only saw his goals on the news this morning but the sacrifices he must make to keep his body in that shape at his age.

I think a lot of his drive was a determination to make his family proud of him. He looked up to his father but he was an alcoholic and died in 2005. I believe this was why Ronaldo never touched alcohol himself and why he strove to become as good as he has been.

Quite possibly they wouldn’t be proud of him getting a bit handsy in recent years (allegedly)

Gone a bit quiet on that front recently

Not so recent, it was 12 years ago.

The fact that the story in the German press is still up and has not been taken down following litigation by his people can be interpreted in various ways.... Last I saw in the summer was that he way trying to get the case struck out?

As for the transfer it will either go swimmingly or be a total shit show, I am not sure how Man Utd set up but he did barely anything resembling defending from the front at Juve, so if they can accommodate a simple no.9 who just finishes chances then should be fine, if their set up needs more who knows. Its going to be a dressing room of ego's that's going to take some managing if nowt else.

It's a shame that Mason Greenwood, who looks like he could be a future England star might now be behind in the pecking order to a 36 year old.

He'll play right of the 3 like he did second half Sunday.
