    US league honestly isn't too bad.

    I'm stuck watching the Aussie league if I want to go watch a live game. Absolutely blessing when the European teams come and tour here and you actually get to watch some decent soccer, even with them only playing at about 20% intensity.

    And I disagree. Take Dortmund in 2013 for example how they rekt Real Madrid against " all odds" even with Ronaldo bringing his A game. All great footballers of all time were complemented by good teammates. Ronaldo thrived at Real Madrid with the addition of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric some of the best midfielders of this decade. Yet Modric and Kroos got obliterated by the Ajax midfield in both legs. With Kroos and Modric out of the equation I doubt they would have won against Ajax honestly.
    Dude, cmon, you have absolutely no clue...

    Ronaldo didnt bring his A game against Dortmund, stop talking shit on here. He missed a huge chance, like Ozil did, like Higuain did...

    then went on to win 4/5 CL's because he owned the KO stages like no one ever did before.

    But but, he would have trouble beating Ajax.....

    Similar situation:

    2015 Schalke.

    Schalke played crazy out of skin also, Ronaldo disrupted their flow by scoring 2 magnificent headers and they ended up advancing.

    Ronaldo isnt just the goals. Its also the momentum break. And the impact to the team/opponents. He spreads belief.

    Wise up, lil soldier.

    That ref should never work again.

    Ridiculous penalty to give.

    VAR is a joke, and was shit in the WC too to be honest.

    It's a pen by the rule book. Why would you grab someone's jersey in the pen area, when var is available? It's just dumb.

    Talking about the United one, but even that one, is borderline for me. He had no shot at the ball.

    I thought it made a lot of the correct decisions. Whether people like it or not is a different story.

    The rule book sucks in that case.

    Nothing should be a pen when the ball is already gone.

    If he had the potential to be a top player he would not play in the US and would already be in Europe by now.
