Nah, his upbringing was really tough. Deserve a statue no. Always looked after his family, tried to save his dad from alcoholism but couldn't. Deserve a statue. No. But just because a sport pays him crazy sums of money, if you don't begrudge him that, if he earned say £60k a year, came from shite, always looked after his family, got to the pinnacle of his sport much harder because it was much harder to work and work and work and work to get to the top when you don't have the God given talent of say Messi. And fuck the loose change, you could see how affected he was by those mudslides on his home Island and almost having to be dragged of the pitch and basically taking over the management of the team to win an international tournament. Complete legend.

Let's see, what scandals has he had, being tanned and preening and having millions of birds think of him when bucking some cunt in Stoke or Kuala Lumpar.

Big fucking deal. That's why he's better than Messi for me, had to work harder, I know Messi needed hgh but he had so much more natural talent and that's why Ronaldo is a hero in Portugal and Argentina prefer other players because he might as well play for Catalonia (yes they do have a weird semi recognised team) because Messi has controlled Barca behind a down to earth tax dodging wee cunt image whereas Ronaldo came from fuck all too but worked harder, destroyed the Prem and La Liga and won an International cup.

So would you respect athletes more because they are skint until they are good and get sponsors?

I think Ronaldo would still be playing for Madrid now if footballers earned just decent wages, I don't know where Messi would be tbf
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

I wonder what Utd fans would have thought of Ronaldo had John Terry not slipped in Moscow ?
Goal wise hes been incredible ,but imo not in the same league as Messi.

It's not just Ronaldo, or footballers for that... it's the whole ridiculous cult of celebrity... we make gods of the most ordinary people just because they've got good looks, or achieve some impressive, but relatively insignificant feat of entertainment...

500 goals in a fuckin sport... compare that to 25 years in prison, for taking a stand against a corrupt, racist regime... or a transsexual, doomed to life in a mens prison for daring to expose the crimes of the US military... proper perspective puts anything Ronaldo has done into the "so what" category...

Aye but that's life Alf, you might as well not enjoy or celebrate or elevate anyone, what about babies born with limbs outside their bodies or Chinese one kid policy so if you're a bloke you better be minted because you outweigh girls shit loads to one.

And I've been watching programs that celebrate Black History month and I'm pretty sure there's more than one Mandela and King Jr statue in various places.

Fuckin Elvis has statues, Rory Gallagher has a statue.

If people that have done something great get them and celeb rockers get them and a provincial airport wants to honour a local legend then fuckin fair play!

I've been to the Holocaust memorial, 9/11, all different things but begrudging the cunt that because his own local people appreciate him and want to thank them for giving them something to inspire them, to be proud of, to say I can fuckin better myself, because that's what Best did, you'll be hard pushed to find even a Republican that doesn't like Best unless they are a Pool supporter and even then.

You might be more knowledgable and cynical about the world in a good way than your average "kid or 2.4 pay the bills what's capitalism and socialism dad" but if they are Portuguese and walk into that airport albeit once the statue is sorted and even if 10% of them feel a swelling of Pride or they go and do something they've never done or join a fuckin gym, fair fucks to the cunts!

It's not like they named the U.N the R.U.N ffs!

I agree, I was at Bests funeral, he didn't ask for an airport and probably Ronaldo didn't, the Euros probably sealed it, so what's the problem, if he builds his own airport and statue then fuck him but people have chosen someone that gives them pride and hope, it's not his fault!

What's with this news about another surrogate mother having twins for him?
Why surrogates? He does have a girlfriend, doesn't he?
