It seems it has been an unsettling week for our dear Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo as there is always something or someone who wants to play mind game with him.

Firstly, he was forced to deny again of his dream of becoming a Galacticos, no other than by himself. He has insisted over and over again that he was happy staying at Old Trafford. But Spain 20 minutos paper says that there was indeed a deal to bring CR7 to Real Madrid, the third agreement reached with his representative, Jorge Mendes, and was worth €80 million with resigned Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon. An agreement completed before the scandal over voting which saw Calderón’s demise. So maybe it is safe to say that the agreement is considered null now and that’s the reason why Sir Alex was making noise that they won’t sell CR7 even if the selling price is more than what is offered to Kaka by the funniest FC in the Premier League – Manchester City.

Secondly, his driving skill is being questioned as much as his diving skills. But CR7 insisted that he is a fairly good driver despite crashing his Ferrari. He said he has never had an accident in six years but he got unlucky and his Ferrari caught oil on the road and goodbye Ferrari.

Thirdly, his much awaited goal since November 15 happened – in a penalty. In the topsy-turvy contest against Derby County for the Carling Cup, Manchester United reached the final in a scrambled play that is so unlike the way the ManU played. But then if not for CR7 goal the game could lead to extra time and with Derby County?!!!?

What a week it was but there’s also some interesting side notes to all of this. It seems CR7 was caught with a new blonde on his arm and she doesn’t look like Alyona Haynes. The new girl? Well if seems CR7 treats all those willing girls salivating for him like underwear but then who are we to judge.





Newcastle United skipper and captain Michael Owen is Carling’s Cup Player of the Month for September as he was voted by 68 percent of the fans. Owen scored three goals in 4 games and he bested teammates Shay Given, Charles N’Zogbia, Sebastien Bassong and Fabricio Coloccini. It has been a tough month for Newcastle and Michael Owen who is still out because of a groin injury. Anyways i hope this award will give him a little inspiration and doesn’t he look so dashing when he received the award. Take that Fabio Capello…
