England salutes Ronaldo
It was the day I've been waiting for since the first time I watched him play. Cristiano Ronaldo might not have done enough to justify a victory the last few seasons, but there is no way any one can argue that he didn't deserve to land the PFA Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards this year. There was tough competition in the form of Didier Drogba, and there were times when I felt Scholes would nick it in the 11th hour, but it took professionals, who face him week in and out on the field, to recognise the genius amongst them.

The Year That Was
it's quite ironic how i have little time to update my blog now that ronaldo is the toast of england.ofcourse, his detractors still exist in every nook and corner, but ronaldo turned around his fortunes in such dramatic fashion that any criticism of him looks baseless now, and not just to his fans.

at one point i thought he wouldn't be able to survive in england, but he has done a better job surviving than anyone...
An over-reaction if there ever was one.
i apologise for my long absence.i recently got done with my month long exams and was waiting for the right opportunity to make a 'come back'.i haven't felt this passionately about something in a long time and i guess i could'nt have picked a better subject to write on.
i had intended to maintain a record of ronaldo's performances in the world cup but a busy study schedule didn't allow that.i'll probably write a summary of his world cup outing after the tournament is over as i'd rather talk about what we have in our hands right now: ronaldo's vilification by the english press and...
OPTA Team of the Season
yes, our ronaldo has made it to the team :D
i wonder what others have to say about the alleged bust up between ruud and ronaldo.if there's any truth to those things that ruud told ronaldo, i have to say i'm very disappointed with the former's childish behaviour and there's no excuse for picking on your teammates like that.i've always liked ruud and it looked like he and ronaldo got along great together...till this season i.e. .i dont know why i get the impression that ronaldo is seen as an easy target by his teammates.i always see giggs and neville shouting at him...
