I like to think his bottom lip was stuck out when he said that.

I feel a wee bit sorry for him (while still lolling away), he scores like a bazillion goals and people talk as if he's pish because he doesn't quite match up to the best player in the world.

Everyone takes so much pleasure in him fucking up. Hardly anyone does that with Messi (though that's maybe because he only fucks up against Chelsea).

That said, the second big chance he missed in that second half had me flashing back to Harard Brattbakk at Celtic so it must fall into the serious fuck up bracket.

I do too; especially as that's *so* not the line to take on Messi, particularly when Holland may yet dump your ass out of the competition on Sunday.

it's pretty obvious why everyone hates him in comparison to Messi. It's alright though, I still love him

there's a churlishness to a lot of the Cronaldo knocking but i've got to say he's never helped to endear himself to non-fans of his club/nation. if Messi doesn't get the same stick it's partly because he's a lot more reserved.

he doesn't even endear himself to fans of his club/nation half of the time

Number None, Thursday, 14 June 2012 10:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

tbh i'm not really sure why his mishaps make me lol so much. He's obviously a great player and the stick he gets for 'sins' like diving or pouting are things that I don't really care about. He was one of the few players I liked at Utd, and I LOVED the wink. I think I mainly automatically want bad things to befall him 'cos he plays for Mourinho's Madrid.

yeah i resent his Madridness much more than i ever hated him for being at United

Also I guess Messi's reserve is kinda how I'd like to imagine I would conduct myself if I were one of the 2 best footballers in the world. In reality if I were as talented as Ronaldo and had his looks I'd no doubt be 10x as obnoxious.

pandemic, Thursday, 14 June 2012 10:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

Strangely I didn't find myself wanting bad things to happen to Ozil or Khedira yesterday so I'm going to put it down to Ronaldo just being a cock. I mean there are obviously worse human beings in football but Ronaldo is such an obliging hate figure due to being such a ponce.

Matt DC, Thursday, 14 June 2012 10:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm 100% sure he doesn't give a shit about being hated either. He probably likes it actually

his looks?

Rosie 47 (ken c), Thursday, 14 June 2012 11:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

the looks of envy, mockery and contempt from random people around him

Ronaldo, a stupid, petulant, creep. The most famous and rich representative of things people hate about football. Still harsh on him though, he is one among many.

is there a particular department where he's the worst example of?

diving: there are worse offenders?
fannydangler: seems quite effective given the amount of goals he scores?
racism: has he been outed yet?
prostitution: i forget or is it just the other ronaldo?

maybe petulance? I dunno.

he always seem like actually quite a nice person in comparison to many others. but unlikeable definitely.

he's like that guy who comes to your street fighter parties who has practiced all the 13 hit combos and pwns everyone but is really boring and gets really upset if you ever beat him. xpost

Today, Dunphy generally resides at his home near Ranelagh village in Dublin. He also owns a holiday home in Deauville, France.[2]

Dunphy married RTÉ Commissioning Editor Jane Gogan, his partner of 18 years, at the Unitarian Church on St Stephen's Green on 24 September 2009.[20]

yeah i wasn't saying there's any truth in them. i know her daughter actually. for a long time a friend of mine was trying to persuade her to get eamon to come for a beer. she acted like it was possible and he might but it never happened.

Geir's technical rigidity will be a hindrance but can Ned cease trying to wink the ball into the net?

But that's how I roll.

“I have a great many regrets,” Van Marwijk told press. “My main disappointments were the defence, midfield, attack, the way our kit has these weird patches on it and the odd guttural chants our fans sang in a language that makes German seem elegant.

“Maarten Stekelenburg is OK, though.”

Hahah!

lol i thought stekelenburg has been shite so far

i wasn't expecting croatia to start with both CF's today, although as they both played so well vs Ireland I should've been perhaps. Both teams unchanged from their opening game.

pandemic, Thursday, 14 June 2012 15:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

Think 3 at the back suits Italy but means pirlo plays a little deeper than ideal, well he did against spain anyway.

back 3 vs 2 CFs should be a bit different than vs 0

sonderangerbot, Thursday, 14 June 2012 16:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah should be ideal, the proper centre-backs to man-mark and De Rossi to sweep.

better cross by srna than he managed against ireland

croatia are letting chiellini be the one who takes the ball out rather than de rossi
