For some reason, I was thinking that we may see Cristiano Ronaldo enter his decline this season, given his struggle for form in the World Cup and a niggling knee injury. What’s more, I think I wasn’t alone…
How wrong I was. Ronaldo is like one of those Duracell bunnies, he just keeps going... It’s really quite freakish how long he has sustained his incredible goalscoring form.
Two hundred and fifty four goals in 247 official games for the club is absolutely ridiculous. It took him all of three minutes to get on the score sheet against Fiorentina in our friendly on Saturday, and even though we lost, if he were really exerting himself in the game, he probably could’ve gotten a few more.
But, besides all this, I think Ronaldo has proven, once and for all, that he is the finest football player on the planet. Nobody is his equal, plain and simple.
