Might want to update your avatar mate

He knows there's no coming back from this. That's why he did it. He was given pre-season off to be with his daughter, so that's a strange point to highlight. The club is being revamped in te

Actually had some good moments. Needs to stick to the one touch football though. His dribbling is tragic. 

We looked more of a threat after he came on and he actually competes for the hopeless long balls. Should have found Eriksen with the pass across goal.

Still think he’ll break into the XI eventually. Just not the quality there to keep him out.

Scenes when Donny is a revelation as a false number nine 😄

Looks sooooo slow now

And seems to have lost some facial weight.but when you go over 35 as pacey player all your life,then close to 40 it's not possible physically,but in box still no one better .but playing for Europa team,might have affected him mentally,you still cannot erase the stories,but he's a goal away from being reloved,as the others are not contributing,Utd need to be scoring again,hence Antony,he will bring aggression,he will take on players,he will hold the ball,this can help Ronaldo vastly,in the last third.

I'd be shocked if he isn't a regular at some point.

The main detraction is how he's a liability out of possession but that applies to Martial too. Martial's hold up play is better but he's hilariously inconsistent and he will just take months off as always. I think that new contract retired any effort he had.

Our fans have started to overrate him again because he had a great preseason. He was always good in preseason. Like clockwork.

If Ronaldo knuckles down and gets some goals off the bench or in the EL I'd be shocked if he isn't eventually starting games every week. I think Antony will benefit him as well - He's great at those curved crosses to the back post that just need a touch. 

 

Your thoughts now?

Just let the guy go in January.

De Gea and Ronaldo are two massive issues.

ten Hag has adapted the style to a more direct approach post Brentford, so it's not like he's been rigid.

The entire team spent the 2nd half trying to assist Ronaldo last night. It was to the detriment of the team.

Needs to go. I do think he'll find some form soon but he's not worth it. Only issue is we would genuinely need a replacement. 

Just loan someone in like we did with Ighalo 3 years ago in January.

Ronaldo's wages being off the books can pay for any loan fee/salary.

Martial will be the starting ST if he stays fit.

We could revisit Matheus Cunha or see if PSG would let Ekitiké leave on loan. He can't get many minutes with Mbappé, Neymar and Messi around.
