Yeah - I wasn't particulary talking about the dives or anything..
I was talking about how IMO, he doesn't beat that much people anymore..
When he beats em, he beats em with speed, and not completely, he just manages to push the ball away from them and buy .3 seconds to take a shot, or make of a (harmless) pass..
The old Ronaldo, would overdue it, he would dribble in the middle of the field, when 3 players where on him, but whats most amazing is that he would beat em.. Now, he's lost that skill, to completely beat a player, many times he pusshes it in front of him, and defenders even block the shotss he takes, cause they aren't well beat, they are just .2 seconds behind him..
He still beats players, but much less, IMO a few feints, stepovers and cuts wouldn't do wrong to his game, he's becoming quite predictable, always foward, always vertical, bro take a pause, fake your going one way and go the other, beat men, not always, but sometimes, don't always sprint forward, vary your games, beat a man, and with that second or two you have from beating them take a shot, success is much more likeable;)
I have been observing this lately, it was particularly clear in the clasico, all he did has get it and run with it, where as if you beat one guy you can cause much more trouble, but no, he tried to run with it and puyol or pique would close him, if not, he would take a weak ass shot right towards Valdez.
