    Ronaldo is teasing Arsenal

    Ronaldo is teasing Arsenal to come and get him this January. As an Arsenal fan I would love to take him at Arsenal but right now Jesus has been phenomenal for us and I just can't see a reason why we should replace Jesus with an already past glory Ronaldo.

    I would take him as a super sub or as a second fiddle player but Ronaldo wouldn't want to be a second choice player and that will start the whole negative dressing room environment just like we had with Aubameyang. - Hamring Phonglo

    Ronaldo old for Prem

    Manchester United groomed this guy to be an enemy, but still Manchester United is going to win without him, he'll soon be a reject, let him admit he's old and not fit for the Premier League. Let him get back to La Liga. - Kiptoo Lawrence-Fabian

    Man United should axe Ronaldo

    Our darling Manchester United is not yet where it ought to be but certainly the club is moving in the right direction! Erik ten Hag is currently doing the right things and we are seeing the old "never give up spirit" of the club returning!

    CR7 should be axed from the club and must never be allowed to be a destructive influence on the rebuilding process. - Wale Sowemimo

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Arsenal 2021-22

    Ronaldo becomes Aubameyang

    What Ronaldo is doing now is what Mikel Arteta noticed on Aubameyang, and Arsenal is a better team now without him... Ronaldo should just leave. - Austin Chigoziem Onina

    Man United to finish seventh

    Ronaldo is sensing something, Man United players are not serious with their games playing as if they won. If Man United continue playing normally then the competition will treat them abnormally. Take this to the bank they will finish position seven. Barasa Elhaji
