Start with the thread title (hint: “right now”), continue with what I wrote (hint: “[…] that’s not that exeptional any more - given the performances of other players this season -” ). I never wrote his goalscoring is not exceptional. I wrote that in the context of this season (!), where at least ten players across Europe have similar or better stats than him, it does not stand out anymore like it used to and that I personally would not rank him in the top 5, as his football in 16/17 simply does not merit it. And this is, again, only referring to goalscoring, leaving out for example some of the staggering displays of midfield goodness (specifically Kroos and Thiago) that we’ve witnessed this season. Heck, even Real fans are criticising him these days for being wasteful and ineffective (which is hyperbole, I think, but still), it’s rather obvious he’s not been a top 5 player in 16/17 so far.
You’ll undoubtedly proceed to tell me how condescending I am. I’m fine with that.
What we can probably agree upon is that I’ve posted way too much already on the topic of Cristiano fucking Ronaldo
and that this is entirely @AbouCuellar’s fault for creating this bloody thread.
