    Ronaldo

    very surprised that a thread hadn't been started on this topic!!! this is a guy who has been lauded all year as the greatest player on the planet... a guy with no integrity or morals.. he has been whoring himself around in the papers since united won the champs league final - i wonder what man utd supporters make of his behaviour??? even if he stays on at united, how would united supporters feel about all his comments about 'loving to play for real madrid'.. is he truly an utter scumbag???

    no. from reading discussions about this on the Bohs MB...

    - he's been there 5 years.
    - opposition fans hate him and give him dogs abuse week in week out.
    - his girlfriend is Spanish
    - Manchester is a kip
    - Madrid isnt
    - He's won the League, the Cup, the League Cup and the Champions League with United.
    - Hes won the Golden Boot, the Young Player of the year and Player of the year awards.
    - Pay rise.

    Who wouldnt leave?

    Good point SkStu but Frank Lampard's girlfriend is Catalan, didn't lead to him going to Barca?

    Might have something to do with Barca not wanting an average MF player

    Oh yes, the same average player who was voted, by his peers, the second best player in the world behind Ronaldinho in 2005.

    Could he displace Xavi, Iniesta or Deco? Could he ******. He has a good engine on him and he gets his fare share of penalties and deflected long range shots but grabbing a game by the scruff of the neck and dictacting play? Plenty of better MF players in the world for that.

    That's just my opinion - I'm sure Chelsea fans love him to death, English football fans are divided. But then again there are people on here who don't rate Ronaldo.....

    I think the fact that his fellow footballers voted him second best in the world is an indication of how good he is. I was just waiting for someone to dust off that old "deflected shots" chestnut. Lampard has scored over a hundred goals for Chelsea and less than 10 of those have been deflections.

    Ruud Van Nistelrooy, and Roy Keane straight away come to mind in relation to Utd's biggest scumbag

    Just for the record. The FIFA award is not voted for by his fellow footballers. Lampard shouldn't be in the Chelsea or England teams, let alone the Barcelona team...

    Anyway, can the OP please give a list of all scumbags who have played for Man utd so we can make an informed decision

    But according to the most up-to-date statistics, he took 82,624,907 shots at goal to get those 100 goals.

    He'd be mad to leave Chelsea and go to a club where he'd be found out for what he really is.

    I'm not sure Ronaldo is a scumbag at all. He doesnt drive while drunk or beat people up, on the field I've never seen him make any shocking tackles that injured players, spit at anybody......in short, he most certainly a whinging little s**t, but no 'scumbaggy' behavior that I can recall.

    I'd believe it. He shoots as soon as he gets the ball in the opponents half. My point was that not all his goals come from deflected shots.

    ronaldo has been quoted as saying over the last few years he would love to play for madrid it is only now the english press / media have gone into a frenzy probally due to their beloved engurlaaand not being at euro 2008 .. some of the stories are totally over the top 375 thousand euro a week to play for madrid ... 95 million transfer fee dream on .. on the other hand ronaldo should have the b*lls to come out and say i am staying with united or yes i definatly want to join madrid. the biggest scumbags in the situation are real madrid they have used the same underhand tactics over the years to unsettle players and their clubs in their attempts to get the players they want
    man utd should call their bluff and tell them to put up or shut up

    Lampard has been poor for England and might not fit in with the likes of Barca.
    He has ben an incredible signing for Chelsea though.Assists and Goal record would more or less confirm that.

    I think some peopel are confusing the work scumbag

    In footballing terms:

    Alan Reynolds was a scumbag, Greg O Halloran is a scumbag, Van Nistelroy was a scumbag, Materazzi is a scumbag, Roy Keane was a scumbag(for that tackle alone) etc. etc

    Ronaldo is a diving, whinging little so and so who has very little loyalty to man Utd., but hes not a scumbag

    He aint no scumbag... He hasn't abused anyone at the club he more than repayed the faith shown in him by Fergie. If I'm not mistaken most United fans thought he was crap and wanted him out after only two seasons....

    He has won everything an England if he wants to move let him(he could have conducted himself better) but that's life he aint the first to do it won't be the last. If united get 70million (seven times what they paid for him) then off with him. He will not enjoy the personal success in Spain that he enjoyed in England. As Torres says the defenders are way smarter in closing down the spaces the Ronaldo needs...

    Financially he will lose his 25million a year contract that is being touted by Nike if he moves to an Adidas club...

    Keane was a scumbag, horseface was a scumbag, Ferdinand is a scumbag, Ronaldo is more of a bitch than a scumbag
