    its easy to be on top when u r loved and people are with u ,but its really difficult sometimes impossible to be loved by some but hated by many & ppl r not in your side ,criticised for whtvr u do,how much u achieve, u still overcome everything because you have such positive and such great mental strength ,i dont think there can be any player stronger thn cristiano ronaldo mentally he alwaya believes n dedicates the most ,i am always surprised by his abilities ,unbelievable athleticism ,unbelievable mental strength ,the best he's not a human

    People say that ronaldo doesnt
    dribble, isnt a playmaker.its like when waiter is going to bring you the food.you dont need to go bring by yourself.in madrid he used to get services.while playing with portugal he does playmaking.now with juventus he dribbles,gives assist

    I think pl clubs sooner play Atletico as they are more of a hustle and bustle side like the pl sides left. City play nice stuff but never done it v a decent side. Repeated failures in Europe v da big boys season after season after season... AND Monaco and last year v a team WO a league title in nearly 30 years. Shameful.

    These guys hate ronaldo and will praise him with hesitation when he's performed to good. Saw it since the world cup. A tap in from messi and they'll make it sound like he's found the cure to cancer

    I agree with Craig Burley. Cristiano Ronaldo played a beautiful game that night. But Juventus brought him in to win the Champions League. And he knows that. That’s why he said that night was fantastic, but they aren’t finished yet.

  • Karim Rehayem
    Karim Rehayem 4 days ago

    Man I love Dan Thomas, he was calling out all these other haters up there for just discrediting Ronaldo’s performance by just focusing on how Atlético “underperformed”. It should’ve been about how Ronaldo, Bernadeshci, Chellini and the rest of Juventus played well on delivered with a spectacular performance. Shame on the other analysts, all of them are salty you can see it in their face and sense in their tone

    Snake weasels. Gab Marcotti is a bloated pig and always hated Ronaldo because he is a Barca fanboy. Moreno is even worse, somehow Messi scoring 2 vs a crap Lyon in a game Barca wins even if alseep is as good as CR7 popping in 3 in a must win game vs one of the worlds best clubs. Pathetic what passes for analysis on ESPN.
    Also as good as Ronaldo was the best player this game was Bernardeschi. Tour de force performance.

  • Sajid Iftekhar Neloy

    In my humble opinion, I think both Atletico and Simeone should part ways amicably. Despite having so many quality attacking players, Atletico still play pre-historic football. Also since the signing of Obalk, Griezman, I don't think any Atletico signings were a hit. Considering the wage paid to Simeone, he should do better.

  • Vincenzo Montalbano

    I just would like to say that NONE of the people speaking in this show make a proper logic and interesting argument for the JUVE vs ATLETICO round: they are not objective. NONE is talking about tactic: Allegri won the game on tactic, with SPINAZZOLA left back destroying the left wing, with BERNARDESCHI leading the game together with PJANIC and keeping Atletico always in apprehension, with CANCELO skimming players and crossing, with CAN, CHIELLINI and BONUCCI simply outstanding, especially the first 2. If they keep saying that JUVE is there ONLY because of Ronaldo then they are biased, because JUVE reached 2015 Final, 2016 best 16th lost against Bayern last minute of extra time in a tight match, 2017 final, 2018 losing at the 94' minute after leading 0-3 at Bernabeu... if you think CR7 did it all alone then you truly got no idea what football is. Football is a team game where tactic, technique and athletic all play crucial component... you can't win with a single man... and you've NEVER seen Juve under Allegri getting out of UCL without displaying a tremendous effort. As far as I am concerned, you were all giving NO CHANCE to Juve but I guess you never heard of Spinazzola, Bernardeschi, Matuidi, Can, Cancelo, Kean (the future italian centre forward)....

    Juve bought ronaldo because everytike they made it far in the ucl ronaldo was the one to stop them everytime, now they bought there only weakness and put them on the team, and now he’s helped than advance, bc if he wasn’t there they would have got out again, so they got there money’s worth, because if ronaldo was on Real Madrid, there would’ve been no comeback for Ajax, and juventus would have lost. But now it’s reversed, because of one man, the greatest

    Atletico played badly really? I think it would be more accurate to say Juventus and Allegri just outclassed them. Tactically Juventus played with 3 central defenders and the 2 wingers Spinazzaola and Cancelo literally opened up that defence and Bernardeschi added extra flair to the midfield. Atletico just didn`t know who to mark.

    This media is fucking bullshit.. if the same thing was done by Messi they would be saying Messi that Messi this. But if it’s cr7 they downplay it as much as they can.
    It’s great but not a surprise bs.. we all know what these guys were saying before the match.
    Attitude lol, cr7 is a better leader than anyone else.. everybody has their bad trait and a good trait..
    If juve had lost they would blame cr7 for he didn’t do anything, if they win they say it’s just a knockout round bloody hell.
    Iam not saying Messi is bad, ya Messi is great but so is cr7. Y u guys never appreciate him as much as u do to Messi. Fucking hell .. fuck u all. CR7 IS Bloody awesome 😎
