but the simple fact is CR7 is fitter at this moment than a player like Kane.
++

when you say fitter, what do you mean and how do you know?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
He changed his style of play years ago and his current style of play is not anymore inhibited by his fitness than kane is by his fitness

he spends less time injured than kane and he is able to complete his role (at this moment) of being a goal scorer for club and country. So he is just as fit if not fitter right now than kane. His recovery ability given his age is another matter, hopefully this is never tested

“ I also wouldnt bet against the fact that this is what City planned by showing interest in Ronaldo to force United to act.”

How exactly are United worse off for having signed him?

What cunning plan do you think City have pulled off?

While I don't believe this, I don't think City were as interested as people think. It's more likely that Ronaldo flirted with City to get United to act!

Perhaps his agent did.

I am not saying United are worse off. In fact in the short term we are probably better for it. Right now it's amazing the impact this deal has made on the image of United worldwide.

I am saying that because of the circumstances of this deal United have been 'diverted' onto another road that they might not have necessarily been following since Ole took over. And that could be City's cunning plan. Who knows if City would have actually signed Ronaldo and that Ronaldo would have agreed to go to City, if United hadn't have stepped in?

And who knows if there will be any stagnation in the development of the younger academy players who are currently breaking through into the first team with the likes of Ronny (and Cavani) as automatic first team picks. (These kids will of course massively benefit from Ronny's and Ed's presence at the club.. but there aint nothing like playing games for experience.

and btw I didn't say City pulled a cunning plan I said I wouldn't bet against it. City are a very smart club these days

This is more or less what I have heard too. City went to a meeting but realised they were being played. Ronaldo got his move. Good for him.

Merson is generally a complete moron but I struggle to see what he has said that is so wrong this time around. Prime Ronaldo was arguably the best player ever, to be 50% of that is still going to make him an elite player. Merson is spot on that he is a great role model to the kids and that Cavani is now going to find playing time limited
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Far from being a moron, Merson is a clever bloke.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

No, he is a moron with a big gob, he is just not wrong this time around
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nope, clever

Just seen this, loom at just around 6 minutes in. Did Merson really say that on Sky lol and he is a pundit. He also thinks Kane would win us the league lol, someone who has never won a trophy vs a player who won the league in the last 3 seasons at Man Utd.

Mersons comments make zero sense first he is questioning whether Ronaldo can perform in the EPL at 36 then he is saying Man U must win the league because they signed the very person whose capability he is questioning.

Stunningly stupid
