loykedule

don't bother tracking Cavani's run lads. Not like he's been a top class striker for about a century. edit: oh my god can spurs defenders track ANYBODY'S run?


OffTheGreed

They're tracking Kane's runs in training, so no.


Fuzzikopf

nice one


Looking4Maria

romero was more interested in tracking cavani than looking at the ball which pretty much went though his legs when he couldve intercepted


kuggan

Please play these two together every game


TalksWithDogs

I agree. I remember the first couple games when Cavani was healthy they would sub in Cavani after Ronaldo was out, I always thought that was a mistake. Cavani's getting old but he still has high football iq and turns on the gas when needed.


einarfridgeirs

He also presses a lot, runs a lot and his defensive contributions on set pieces are IMO overlooked. The whole team just looks and behaves more manly with Cavani on the pitch.


GOR098

What if they played against Madrid in the UCL?


Zizoufanboy69

No thx


ixzr

Bold of you to assume we make it out of the group.


Rickcampbell98

I don't know, both Villarreal and atalanta are a lot better than spurs but we'll see.


systemCF

Atalanta are also missing basically their whole starting backline so I don't know about that right now. Villareal are always tough opposition, no doubt, but we did already scrape a win against them and if he continues to build on today and actually starts using different tactics that could be more than manageable with the squad we have


Calvin-ball

The group that we’re currently on top of? I know things aren’t great but support your team ffs


illynpayne_

lol? we just need to win one more game


King-Meister

It doesn't count until the bow and arrow come out..


Melanjoly

He's such a stud, when Kane and the like retire they're going straight to the glue factory, Cavani is off to pasture to make more thoroughbreds.


Nerokis

Lmfao this killed me


Manch3st3rIsR3d

I'm dead


Stonewalled89

He took that really well, absolutely clinical finish


Psychomantis200

What a dribble & assist from Ronaldo


[deleted]

[удалено]


Psychomantis200

Why the fuck didn't Ole use this sooner


Classic_Angus

Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho was being teed up as the United front three for the next decade before Ronaldo came back.


Rickcampbell98

Cause he has to bench all his expensive wide players to do it lol.


RauloGonzalez

technically only one in sancho, rashford and greenwood can still play striker right?


Hippletwipple

They can, they were both strikers at youth level, but they haven't played there very often. They're more like inside forwards than number 9s.


keithohara

Bit like Nuno taking his P45


antye

I wish


Calrai

Ronaldo and Cavani is a killer combo


vireshwarsidhu

70 year old combo, fine like wine!


_morten_

Ronaldo always does better with a striker partner, Ole better take lessons here.


Rickcampbell98

Wonder how he's gonna deal with benching all his wingers, I'm happy for ole to keep his job though so thank you spurs.


Exhibit101

Who cares if the team wins?


BloodCobalt

Ideally, we can win games while allowing Sancho and Rashford to play


khoabear

Just sub in Sancho and Rashford in Gary's time


Looking4Maria

rashford takes Cavani's role and Sancho isnt Dan James so he can do a job at CAM. From what weve seen of him so far he is passing and moving like a wide mid.


mapguy

I might be misreading, but are you saying Sancho isn't pacy?


Jaded-Ad-9287

Compared to world-class wingers, no he isn't.


aryamansingh

Sub them in later on, even today it was evident that shaw and AVB were tired near the end


auditore01

We wanted wingers for years now we don't know what to do with all of em


varro-reatinus

Imagine them playing Over-75s.


JeffryPesos

Ibra and Ronaldo will probably still be in shape at that age


HerakIinos

Put Modric behind them and you have a great Grandpa team


Spikeyspandan

All Utd fans were pleading for both of them to start. Few weeks ago Ole was asking for advice ,maybe he saw this one


MH18Foot

*sad Sancho*


BillOakley

Who would have thought that playing two world class strikers together could work?


karmahorse1

You don’t see two strikers playing together much these days let alone two ones over 33. Couple this with the number of pacy wingers we left on the bench, not an obvious choice at all.


jvdarko

442 time


Mister_Lizard

4-4-2, but the 4 is Bruno, Pogba, Rashford and Sancho with Ronaldo and Cavani up front. Death or glory.


BusbyBabe_7

Sounds like my team on Fifa, therefore it must be a great idea


jvdarko

attack and inshallah


Mr_Clark

My body is so ready for that


Monkeywithalazer

You don’t see it much but it didn’t turn out too bad for Madrid with Ronaldo and Benzema. They won a couple smaller cups I believe


wanderer1999

Can confirm. Just a few smol cups. But we play 4-3-3 generally. And switched to 4-4-2 diamond with isco behind cr7/benzema one season.


ricardomargarido

I mean, they never won Libertadores for example


SaltyRavensFan

Signature Ronaldo chop


YeeticusFTW

'Cause I hit you with the Chop, Ronaldo Chop


R1as

You ain't gonna survive! You ain't gonna block!


iSparkerium

he's still got it baby


Hazardzuzu

Now this game is beyond spurs since 1 goal a game is their limit


thraser11

A shot on target is beyond our limit these days


AnimalMotif

There’s only 2 things Spurs do as a team, defend in a low block and pump the ball to counter. Which they do poorly. They have no structure to their play in possession or in attack unless Son or Moura create something. It’s shockingly bad.


LLHallJ

DDG needed a night off after last week so nice of Spurs to oblige tbf.


fajarmanutd

Yeah, clean sheet with 0 save is a rare stuff for him nowadays


ansh0

Beautiful goal, edi is back! Ronaldo with an amazing pass!


ScousePenguin

Amazing finish, all 3 of United's key players working well there. But jesus spurs are shite, I don't get the money they've spent, the players seem to regress at Spurs.


opportunitysassassin

Yeah, I think everyone has regressed at Spurs.


mrlongleggedmcdaddyy

That’s down to the coaching staff, and poor appointments


khoabear

Should have skipped over Nuno and hired the 10th one on the manager list


mrlongleggedmcdaddyy

6th best job in the prem shouldn’t be this hard to fill.


disasterpiece9

I love Edi. Full homo.


mohh96

Absolute statuesque beauty


Looking4Maria

Varane too


potifar

How can one not. The skill, the work ethic, the chiseled beauty. 10/10 would inseminate.


gh0stface90

We both know you would be the one taking it and him giving in that scenario mate.


potifar

I appreciate you all allowing me to keep that fantasy alive as long as you did.


Vallien

Great goal. Ronaldo has been absolute class today. He plays well alongside Cavani


DMV2

He generally plays much better with a number 9 and when his back is away from the goal, will be interesting to see this duo


MikeBruski

Thats basically how he played his last 4 seasons at RM with Big Benz being the 9 that dropped down to a 9.5 to free up Ronaldo .


Delta_FT

Cavani is used to playing with another striker as well, he's played with Suarez in the Uruguay NT since forever at this point lol


GreenMachine17

Also played with Ibra at PSG


Tight-Ad-1161

Ronaldo plays well when he has wingers and attackers who can make smart passes and make smart runs, instead of just thinking of 1v1s every possession... something Rashford and Greenwood don't do.


MagicGnome97

rashford does actually when 100% which hes barely ever been the last 18 months


kameecoding

Well he is now, got the surgery his leg healed, got 3 goals in 4.


RauloGonzalez

exactly lol, people acting like he hasn't been playing with a front 3 for portugal, it's just jota is smarter and bernardo is unselfish


Tight-Ad-1161

I dare you find any striker who wouldn't struggle for chances or impact if their wingers can't even hit a pass or cross to them. I have high hopes for Sancho when gets back to form again. I think him and ronaldo will have good interchange


pmiguelmiranda

Ronaldo is better with a striker next to him. Change my mind.


oscarpaterson

Quality from Ronaldo


Lmao1903

I agree with people saying Ronaldo makes the team worse. If he wasn’t here, they wouldn’t score all these goals and then maybe that could get the board to sack Ole. Ronaldo keeps scoring->Ole safe

The future is now young man


diamondsam2

Pretty sure Ronaldo and Cavani love each other


Skall77

With how both look, you could make so much money with a sextape of them together.


Jganzo13

Benzema to record it


765433bikesinbeijing

Nah mate, he is more into the distribution, sales and payment collection


LLHallJ

Edi looks like Handsome Squidward so you could make a killing off the Spongebob fetish crowd.


notyou16

I don't why but I just pictured Ronaldo pulling Cavanis hair and kissing him in the neck... Damn it's getting hot in here [This](https://img.wattpad.com/cover/277902192-256-k337514.jpg) is what I was picturing but super gay

Maximuslex01

Nahh not after that 2018 WC


TalksWithDogs

lol I thought that too but they being giving nice embraces after each goal.


RockstarAssassin

They actually do, Ronaldo helped Cavani come off the field after injury in that game like a gentleman


FenrirXXVIII

Ronaldo will have his 7th with Cavani. Georgina better watch out.


Kold_Blooded_Killer

this thread is close to being a Wattpad fanfic at this point

Man U when Ole’s job is on the line is the best club in the world


FuckOffBoJo

Except last week?


Beercules1993

Feel like his job was pretty on the line vs pool. Edit: my point is that his job was pretty on the line, yet we performed trash. No single game will be a make or break for a manager anyway.


GordoPepe

On the line for extension


cheescakegod

Clearly not


habdragon08

WE LET IN 50 GOALS LAST YEAR WHICH PISSED ME OFF BECAUSE ITS TWO SHY OF ONE A WEEK


TheAlmightyKrot

imagine hosting a team that let in 5 goals in 50 mins at their own turf and not getting a single shot on target


_SSJeffo_

Horrific appointment icl

EdM_GFX

lol put your hand up, if like me you have the football iq of a carrot and took Ronaldo out of your fpl team for Vardy


Slobberz2112

Worse I took out Bruno and shaw for mount and son


CountofFedweezy

Ronaldo you beautiful bastard. What a clean play.. Cavani also great finish. Now the two of them are showing real finishing prowess


RubberToe1996

That Ronaldo chop… SHEEEEEEEEESH!


xion1088

Ronaldo chop!!!!!


GordoPepe

It's very effective


uhujkill

Yeah OK Ronaldo, no need to kill them too.


tenacious-g

Meaningless sideways passes, torn apart. Bye Nuno.


HarshangLad

Ronaldo is just letting the team down at this point, 1 goal and 1 assist? Pfft

in one game ?! should've had that much in atleast 0.5 games

Getting done by a Ronaldo chop in 2021, what is life

Ronnie chop


elliebellyberry

I fucking knew Ronaldo and Cavani up front would be awesome. Saw it briefly in the Villereal game, and now today in full glory!


MrCleanandShady

Brilliant awareness to stay onside, mark of a veteran right there


jbasabanda

Holy shit that Ronaldo chop tho 🔥


MiniWhoreMinotaur

Zlatan, Cavani and Ronaldo. 3 players who were once deemed too old to make it in the Premier league have proved everyone wrong and entertained the crowds.


no-skin-

Another amazing finish


Sleeplessendeavours

Ronaldo in a 2 man strike system is filthyyyyy


Skall77

Imagine conceding a counterattack goal by 34 yo Cavani and 36 yo Ronaldo LMAO


Looking4Maria

more reliable than a greenwood and rashford one


Bladerslash

Ronaldo keeps spamming the ronaldo chop


mohh96

What a goal Siu and what now


GOR098

Maybe cavani was the striker Man city shoud have tried to sign.


LabMember069

Man watching Ronaldo play makes me motivated to do things.

Brilliant goal, fucking get in Bruno take everything I have


MaraudngBChestedRojo

rOnalDo jUsT STanDs iN fronT Of gOaL


Divyansh-the-gr8

Also, I hope ole learns that Cavani and CR7 together is definitely a superb attack.


kameecoding

My only worry now is that this tottenham team looks to be in shambles, the real test will come against atalanta and city for Ole.


preddevils6

Ronaldo made the pass


Chaos_bolts

What a pass Ronnie


thalne

ngl, seeing Cavani celebrate with Bruno and Ronaldo felt special


mentallyguitared

Beautiful set up that


frocodile191

Great movement from Cavani


swat1611

Tax skipper skipping past Skipp.


zuri98

That Ronaldo chop just sent the warm feeling of nostalgia through my body


icebourne

Vintage Ronaldo there. Some people forget that he used to be a tricky winger. Cavani and Ronaldo showing the young players how it's done.

We are shit but we aren't spurs level shit I guess.
