Do I Adore Cristiano Ronaldo?

15 Jan

A new friend of mine from facebook asked me this question. He said that all Manchester United’s fans adore Cristiano Ronaldo.

I do not admire him very much. Congratulation to him for scoring 42 goals last season, but he won’t be scoring that much this season. Congratulations to him for being named FIFA World Footballer of the Year, Ballon d’Or for the European Footballer of the Year, Football Writers’ Player of the Year, PFA Player of the Year and FifPro World Player of the Year; but he won’t be getting all that again next year.

If I’m Sir Alex Ferguson, I would sell him at the end of this season if the price is right. I won’t accept offers less than £100 million (rumours said that Real Madrid is willing to shell out 85 million Euros for him). I think Manchester City will spend more than that for the Portugal star. Then I will give Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha (Nani), Park Ji-Sung and Zoran Tosic a chance to be the next Player of the Year.

Anyway, I still think Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Kaka, Lionel Messi and Fernando Torres last season. I dare say that the 3 can’t score 42 goals in a season.

Cristiano Ronaldo goals statistics (2007/08):
English League – 31 goals/34 games
Cup – 3/3
League Cup – 0/0
Europe – 8/11
Other – 0/1
Total – 42 goals/49 games

Lionel Andrés Messi goals statistics (2007/08):
Spanish League – 10 goals/28 games
Europe – 6/9
Total – 16 goals/40 games

Fernando José Torres Sanz goals statistics (2007/08):
English League – 24 goals/33 games
Europe – 6/11
Total – 33 goals/46 games

Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite (Kaká) goals statistics (2007/08):
Italian League – 15 goals/30 games
Europe – 3/9
Total – 19 goals/41 games

AFF Suzuki Cup Semi-Finals

21 Dec

Vietnam defeated Singapore 1-0 in the second leg semi-final of the AFF Suzuki Cup at the National Stadium. A mistake by Ismail Yunos cost the lion the chance to win the Asean football title three times in a row.

Anyway, this year is not ours since we lost Khairul Amri (broken metatarsal), Fazrul Nawaz (torn knee ligaments), Qiu Li (Fifa ruled him ineligible), Aleksandar Duric (fractured a bone) and John Wilkinson (calf injury). Noh Alam Shah is not 100% fit as he still carrying a niggling hamstring problem.

We will be strong the next time we plays (yeah.. we going to have more foreign import players… LOL).

Uzbekistan is leading right now with nine points from three games. Saudi Arabia will be second if they beat Lebanon at home today. For Singapore to qualify for the final round, they really need to get three points from Uzbekistan at their hometown this Saturday (June 7th, 2008), then a win against Saudi Arabia at home one week later on June 14th and the last match to the Lebanon away on June 22nd.

This is the first time Singapore face Uzbekistan. Singapore had met Saudi Arabia in six occasions losing five games, draw once, scored two goals and conceded fifteen goals. Beat Lebanon once, lost once, scored four and let in three goals.
