    I think, as evidenced by subsequent posts, is that whilst I think he could still do a job for a team that was willing to accommodate him, the simple fact is that nobody at that level wanted the toxicity and disharmony he would bring to the dressing room. At that point, if you don't want to retire, then why not go for a massive payday?

    I'm not convinced that "nobody at that level wanted him" TBF.  More like, as this signing suggests, it is about money.  Only him and his agent know though.

    I don’t want to become the leader of the Ronaldo defence force, but let’s have a dose of realism here.  He’s a month shy of his 38th birthday and by all reports he’s been offered nearly half a billion Euros for two years work. He’s not going to get a contract at a club with serious ambitions of winning the  Champions League, he’s not going to reduce himself to playing mid table football in a big league either.   Nobody cares that Rivaldo went to Uzbekistan, that Xavi went to Qatar and most people would have to use Google to find where Iniesta has been playing for the last couple of years.

    Ronaldo will be quietly earning four million euro a week and when he does retire people will still just talk about how utterly brilliant he was for Real Madrid and in his first spell at Manchester United. 

    However, all we heard these last few months was, Ronaldo was still good enough to be playing a high standard of football, not Ronaldo is happy to play anywhere as long as he gets paid zillions! It's just pure greed.

    Well my point wasn't that it meant we were definitely signing him (that would obviously be ridiculous), just that there was some recognised interest in him. As I said above, on that basis it isn't a particularly left-field signing.

    It was only said, tongue in cheek.  I'm just one of those people who only believes it when I see the shirt being held up. Media/paper are fully of bollocks a lot of the time.


    I must admit, I didn't expect us to sign him.

  5. Took some games to CEX, asked about the price they'd give me for Castlevania Symphony of the night and she said because it has a few scratches on the disc (nothing major in my eyes) they'd not offer anything for it.:wacko:

    I found that quite bemusing but fuck em, I've seen them sell on eBay for about the same as there minimum with more scratches!


    Odd as well, they gave me full 'mint' price for one of my games which was no where near mint.
