I would really like to see Holland win the Euros, ideally vs. Portugal in the final. I am a fan of Van der Sar so would like to see a few more clean sheets for Holland. They got a really nice (and impressive) result vs. Italy. It would be cool if Greece repeated their amazing run 4 years ago but I w...

Well I was rooting for AC Milan to take the 4th spot in Serie A (and hence qualify for CL). So I will be excited to see them competing in the tournament, although maybe they don't deserve to be there. RZ I can't find any source that says Milan would be the team to replace Porto or CSKA? Why would UE...

Well, good examples, Hugh and 2brown, especially Kaka and Zizou (two of my fav players), but again this is all opinion. By skillful I mean physical ability (not talking about smarts, vision, or creativity). And yeah I meant right now, so Zizou (and imo 'Dinho) don't really count.

Now that we're on the topic of Ronaldo and teamwork I'll throw this out here:

And 2brown, who, in your opinion, is more skillful than Ronaldo?

OK, I think I can answer one of your questions...are you saying when he is one on one w/ the keeper he can never finish? I used to have a big problem with this as well. Firstly, I realized there are going to be situations where based on the angle of the shot or the skill of the keeper you just aren'...

OK I desist, obviously everyone has their own opinion about Ronaldo and no one is willing to change it (including myself :( ). I will say this: When it comes to football, I do not think that there is a more skillful player in the world than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Yes, passing and through balls and one-two plays is my favorite way to play the game as well. (The setup to Ronaldo's Champ's League goal vs. Chelsea is a perfect illustration of what I'm talking about). Ronaldo is not a selfish player at all (just look at his assist for Quaresma's goal vs. Czech Re...

Yea thanks. I know some people don't like his tricks, especially when he maybe doesn't need to use them, but to me they make the game more interesting to watch. As both a referee and a player, I understand the difficulty for the ref in making the right call on any play (whether its a dive or not), w...

Hi everyone, (first post on this forum) I have been lurking on EF for a few months now (since January probably) and just now bothered to make an account. What better way to introduce yourself than to voice your opinion on CR7?? To answer the question: Yes I do. I am very impressed with his ball skil...
