Cristiano Ronaldo is back in full swing with Juventus


first_imgAs Real Madrid keeps missing him after he left, Cristiano Ronaldo keeps on proving that he is one of the best ever as he owns Serie A with Juventus.It’s funny how people keep doubting a player like Cristiano Ronaldo, the man who is determined to be recognized as the best ever by taking over Italian football with Juventus.Surprising the world when he started playing in Portugal wasn’t enough, becoming an absolute boss in England for Manchester United quenched his thirst for glory momentarily, and not even becoming Real Madrid’s best player ever was enough for his burning desire to be revered above anybody else.Now that he has the chance to play in Serie A for Juventus, it took hin only 9 matches to win over the heart of every single fan regardless of which club they support.Every person who enjoys football in that country is feeling quite grateful that ‘Commander’ Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to grace them with his presence and he keeps on turning people to his religion through hard work and results.After what he did this Saturday at Empoli, there is practically no critic left who thinks he won’t take the Vecchia Signora to a title-winning season and everybody is already savoring what’s coming for Juventus in the Champions League.Cristiano Ronaldo 🚀🔥 pic.twitter.com/ivodDqSiID— Futebol Mundial (@Futemundial5) October 27, 2018Not even the problems out of the pitch were enough to stop this beast, Cristiano knows now obstacles and he doesn’t care about other people’s agendas, all that interests him is winning.Juventus had a very complicated task this Saturday against Empoli, they even started losing the match and went to halftime losing 1-0.But considering how Cristiano Ronaldo has been progressing this season with his new club, it was only a matter of time before his talent reached the boiling point it did today.Scoring the equalizer through a penalty wasn’t going to be enough for the Portuguese forward, he was craving for a moment like the one that followed in order to leave his characteristic mark properly.It was one of those moments that a football fanatic can smell coming for miles, Cristiano only needed a little bit of space and a few seconds to strike the ball from a long distance.A true screamer of a goal that gave Juventus the three points but most importantly, reminded everyone that Cristiano Ronaldo is still one of the two best players in the world.Rick Karsdorp, Roma, Serie AKarsdorp reveals he had too much stress at Roma Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The Dutch defender has been with the Gialorrossi since 2017, but he has not enjoyed his time in the Italian Lega Serie A.This missile he scored against Empoli, was very reminiscent of the best goals he scored repeatedly in Spain.Cristiano Ronaldo = irreplaceable. pic.twitter.com/4T3psuPnPa— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) October 27, 2018This image of Cristiano Ronaldo taking aim to destroy his target, is a picture that people in the Spanish La Liga will no longer be able to enjoy on Sunday as Real Madrid visit the Camp Nou to play against Barcelona.We are quite certain that despite Florentino Perez’s pride, he will later accept that the single biggest mistake he made as the Real Madrid president, was letting Cristiano Ronaldo leave Los Blancos after refusing to pay him what he was asking.We have no doubt in our minds, that Cris will maintain this same level of performance until he is well past 37 and everybody in Spain will keep missing him until the day he retires.It wouldn’t be crazy to think that this terrible mistake could end up costing Florentino his presidency, because dark ages are coming for the Spanish giants after Ronaldo.There is no escaping that, because the Portuguese forward as we all were reminded today, is simply irreplaceable.Bringing players like Neymar, Eden Hazard, or Kylian Mbappé, will never change the fact that Cristiano is no longer a Real Madrid player.Ronaldo 👀 pic.twitter.com/h5NST1ZVjb— murillo moret (@moret_) October 27, 2018How long will it take for Real Madrid to overcome Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit from the club?

Ince agrees with Mourinho over Pogba getting dropped


first_imgFormer United legend Paul Ince, also agrees that Jose Mourinho did well to drop Paul Pogba from Manchester United’s starting eleven.The future looks bleaker and bleaker for Paul Pogba at Manchester United, as manager Jose Mourinho finally made the decision to drop him against Arsenal and he got applauded by the likes of Paul Ince or even Paul Scholes.These two people are amongst Jose Mourinho’s fiercest critics since the Portuguese manager took control of the squad, but they both agreed that the French midfielder hasn’t been performing at the top of his game this season and the latest falling out they had was the last chance for the player to fall back in line for the manager.Because it’s not just the disagreement he is having with the boss that affects Paul Pogba, it is also the increasingly bad relationship he keeps having with the fans who don’t agree with the way in which he conducts himself.The people have already caught wind of his attitude, and Mourinho’s biggest critics have as well. This week after the Arsenal match at Old Trafford, we heard Paul Scholes supporting Mourinho’s decision to leave Pogba on the bench and today it was Ince’s turn.Paul Ince believes Paul Pogba is ‘bang average’ and Romelu Lukaku ‘brings nothing to the table’ as he backed Jose Mourinho’s decision to drop them from his Manchester United team. pic.twitter.com/Gl7RGIpbg7— Lilian Chan (@bestgug) December 6, 2018“It feels like every time I speak about Man United, it’s about Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. I’m getting bored of them both,” wrote Ince on Paddy Power.“Against Arsenal, the game was quite exciting and fun – which is rare for United at the minute – until those two came on the pitch.”“It wasn’t necessarily top-class football on display, but it was enjoyable, and that’s all the fans wanted.”“The big decision for Jose Mourinho now is whether he keeps the same side for the Fulham game.”“He keeps chopping and changing it, and I can see why. He did the right thing in dropping Pogba and Lukaku, they don’t seem remotely interested, and they’re just not good enough.”“When it comes to Pogba, it’s just another drama, another chapter in the life of him. He was atrocious against Southampton and didn’t deserve to be picked for a game like Arsenal.”“It’s all well and good him moaning off the pitch, but the fact is, he’s doing nothing to deserve a place in the side. Pogba’s supposed to be world class, but he looks bang average.”Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“If he thinks his place is to come on the pitch and do stupid little flicks and tricks which lead to them losing the ball – he’s an idiot.”“You can blame Jose Mourinho for some things, but you can’t blame him for everything. Pogba doesn’t help him himself, and he’s right to be dropped,” he added.If Pogba wants to leave Old Trafford he should go, according to @PaulInce. Read his column here: https://t.co/xE9rGpUUBv— Paddy Power (@paddypower) December 6, 2018The upcoming match against Fulham should be more than enough for everybody to really know if Jose Mourinho will drop Pogba on a permanent basis or not, the player could leave the club if he doesn’t see himself as part of the last games of 2018 and clubs like Barcelona are already waiting for the other shoe to drop.This situation is most unfortunate for Pogba himself, as he had always expected to become one of Manchester United’s legends since he started playing for the Red Devils when he was only a teenager.Unfortunately for this Paul, the other two most important Pauls don’t even seem to like him and he will have a very difficult time trying to win them over.It isn’t late for Pogba yet, he can still get back in his game but he has a very complicated next few months ahead if he wants to stay in the club.Mourinho has already taken the advantage in their particular battle, but the war is not lost yet.Paul Ince: “It feels like every time I speak about Man United, it’s about Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. I’m getting bored of them both. Against Arsenal, the game was quite exciting and fun – which is rare for United at the minute – until those two came on the pitch.” #MUFC— Devils Latest (@Devils_Latest) December 6, 2018Do you think Paul Pogba will get back into Jose Mourinho’s good graces or will he get sent to another club soon?

Dyche talks about penalty drama in Burnley match


first_imgThe manager was shocked that the referee didn’t award his team a penalty kick after a first half four over Ashley Barnes.In the first half of the Burnley-Southampton match, Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy fouled Ashley Barnes.But the referee didn’t see it like that and booked Barnes for simulation.Then in the second half, Nathan Redmon gave Southampton the lead, until Barnes was given the chance to take a penalty kick in the last play of the game to even things out 1-1.“I have absolutely no idea, whatsoever, why that penalty wasn’t awarded,” Burnley coach Sean Dyche told the team’s official website.“I’ll just reiterate that when players fall naturally, I don’t think they are getting penalties.”This is the team’s first penalty in 68 English Premier League matches.“I think I’ve been honest enough to speak about that this season, when results have gone against us, such as when Harry Kane should have had one and West Ham should have been awarded one, and I just don’t know where the game is going,” the manager continued.“Dives get given as penalties and real falls are not getting given and just because Ashley hasn’t thrown his arms in the air and rolled around 10 times, he gets nothing.”Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.“The keeper comes out trying to do his job. the center forward gets there first and toes it past him, and the keeper brings him down,” he tried to explain the penalty.“It is impossible, in my opinion, that that is not a penalty and I just don’t understand it.”Burnley FC is currently sitting in the 17th position of the standings with just 24 points after 25 matches.The team has only won six games, drawing another six and losing 13.Their next match is on Saturday, February 9th against Brighton and Hove Albion.REACTION | Gaffer gives his thoughts on the two penalty incidents…WATCH MORE ➡️ https://t.co/cL58ew9PZb pic.twitter.com/B0d4OQpnJY— Burnley FC (@BurnleyOfficial) February 2, 2019last_img read more


Koulibaly refuses to write off Napolis Serie A title hopes


first_imgNapoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is in no mood to give up on winning the Serie A this season, despite dropping points in a 0-0 draw at Fiorentina on Saturday.The Partenopei dominated ball possession at the Artemio Franchi Stadium but were wasteful in front of goal, which ultimately proved costly in the end.Piotr Zielinski and Dries Mertens were all superbly denied by Fiorentina goalkeeper Alban Lafont in the match to ensure that there would be a share of the points.“It’s disappointing, as Fiorentina caused us problems with their high press in the first half, but once we started passing it around well, we went clear on goal several times,” Koulibaly told Sky Sport Italia.“We did everything we could to get the goal, but it remains a positive point considering we lost here last season, but we didn’t allow them many chances.”The result means that Napoli could end up trailing Serie A leaders Juventus by 11 points at the end of today should Massimiliano Allegri’s side defeat Sassuolo.But Koulibaly made it abundantly clear that he will not be raising the white flag anytime soon as Napoli continue their chase for a first league crown since the Diego Maradona days in 1990.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.He added: “Anyone who doesn’t believe in the Scudetto should stay out of the locker room. As long as it is mathematically possible, I will continue to believe.“We are very competitive and want to get closer to Juve. It’s tough because they are strong and keep winning, but we have to continue along our path.”Next up for Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be a trip to Swiss Super League giants FC Zurich for the first leg of their Round of 32 Europa League tie on Thursday.Then Napoli will host Torino next Sunday back in the Serie A.📌 Full time⚽ #FiorentinaNapoli 0-0 🇮🇹 @SerieA 💙 #ForzaNapoliSempre pic.twitter.com/olVTgzqMIO— Official SSC Napoli (@en_sscnapoli) February 9, 2019last_img read more

Caribbean Cruisin stuck at sea dozens frustrated
