goalscoring

Celta Vigo goalie Sergio Alvarez: “Cristiano Ronaldo is defining a period in football history.”

“Facing him is a challenge.

We all know Cristiano scores in nearly every game and we’ll have to be more alert.

He’s a goalscorer in every sense of the word. I don’t know if he’s the best goalscorer ever, but his consistency means it’s complicated to play him.

He’s defining a period in football history.

We’ll try to enjoy it while we can and try to stop him in this game.”

The inimitable Ray Hudson answering: “Whom to build a team around: James Rodriguez, Marcelo or Cristiano Ronaldo?‘

“There’s always a sun in the centre of the galaxy, around which the others rotate.”

“This tasty player illuminates when things ain’t so bright.”

“The one and only Cristiano is the ‘big bang’, where everything begins.”

“This demonic goalscorer has a mystic ability to situate and position himself in places of prime danger and then executes with extreme prejudice, so relentlessly, so consistently …”

“… he provokes his teammates with that demonstrate of burning desire. And when he pushes them right to the limits sometimes, it’s only because he pushes himself BEYOND the limits and sets the standards for the rest to follow.”

“The ‘Dark Invader’, 'tasty geezer’.

Tasty geezer - almost Shakespearean, Ray Hudson ☺

Lionel Messi: Playmaker, dribble master and goalscorer

Cristiano Ronaldo: Goalscorer

I hate football.

I have been absolutely buzzing all day. I can’t sit still. I can’t concentrate. If Bournemouth win tonight then, barring an absolute disaster or Middlesbrough going on an epic goalscoring rampage, they will secure a spot in the Premier League.

AFC Bournemouth. Premier League.

I have been dreaming of this for 23 years. Ever since that first game my dad took me to when I was nine. I wish he was around to see it.

I’m going to cry. My little Bournemouth. I am so nervous and so excited. I can’t. I just can’t.

Come on you reds!

Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford has been rewarded with the Championship Player of the Year Award for his brilliant season on loan with Middlesborough.  it’s not a huge surprise that he’s taken it considering his goalscoring form and superb all-around play this season.

No, Ronaldo isn't amazing and the next Madridista that tries to shame me into "acknowledging his skills" get slapped in the face. He isn't amazing because nothing he does is unique, he scores goals, a lot of them, yes, but that's pretty much it. His dribbling skills are average, his playmaking skills are weak, he is selfish on the pitch, he has had too many unsportsmanlike conducts for me to respect what he represents. He is, however, good. Just as Zlatan, Hazard, Suarez, Robben etc.

he is a goalscoring machine, he’s not a fantastic footballer. There is a difference.

tbh I remember this great quote I read once that said messi is the mozart to ronaldo's salieri. the rivalry only exists while both are active but it'll be obvious who is better when they retire. ronaldo's goal scoring record is impressive but that's really all he's remembered for. in the future, he'll probably be talked about on the same level as puskas, gerd muller, etc. a great goalscorer. Messi will be remembered as one of the best playmakers of his time.
