Ronaldo just keeps getting better!

Cristiano Ronaldo is proving week after week that he must be regarded as the best footballer in the world. Tonight he scored two more goals to send my team Manchester United back to the top of the Premier League.

Jamie Redknapp the ex Liverpool and England player called Ronaldo’s second goal the best ever free kick in the history of the Premiership and that is some compliment.

The ‘Guvnor’ Sir Alex Ferguson has built a squad of young players at Manchester United that are the most exciting I can remember since the great days of George Best, Bobby Charlton and Dennis Law in the late 1960’s.

Come on the Reds!!

Dear Trevor,

Speaking of a team with real heart a la Manchester United--can you stand another picture of excellence in action?

Hi Marilyn - I love sport.

I believe competing in sport is a highly emotional experience. To play in a team or even as an individual and therefore to stretch ourselves and test ourselves is good for the soul!

...and then the release after the victory - or sometimes defeat of course - means we can truly express our feelings openly to the world at that special moment ... thanks for the picture - it is brilliant.
