i am 30. i actually watched those matches live.
you can make any half talented player look like messi on youtube. i can show you like a dozen turkish players and you would probably go like holy shit he should be on real madrid.
anyway cr was an instant deliverer on manu. he was really fucking good. but nowhere near where he was when he was at his peak. the funny thing is i remember quaresma was supposed to be the real star and cr7 was more like a role player. quaresma shit the bed and cr7 went on to become huge. on that count quaresma is beasting right now at age 34 which is pretty fucking weird.
cr7 is also almost 34 now. he was still beasting 2 years ago.
i think he was amazing in MANU towards the end especially. Kinda sad he left but i guess you can't refuse to play in La Liga. I don't think he is the most skilled footballer but definitely one of the most hard working
for me its probably the 2007-08 season. he was really going ham. premier league was super fun to watch and was overall the best league back then. defenses were hard. pacing was insane. and dude dominated the league. the team was also great but nothing like madrid or barça.
when guardiola took over barça and they destroyed the football scene madrid had lotsa good players as well and when he was scoring more than a goal some season the teams were better than what he had in manu. and id dare say the rst of the spnis teams were mediocre at best in defense.
ye same. i only watch the cl matches that have teams from turkey and the semis. and a couple of derby matches here.
nbas way better.
on that note euros and world cups are still fun to watch imo to find yun gems and underdog teams etc.
but for me the most obvious reason is i havent bought a single fm game since 2014. and i ve been playing it since cm 2001.
