What Ronaldo is doing at the moment is far more impressive than scoring 90 goals in a calendar.

The switch was in place back when Ronaldo scored the title winning goal against Barca last season. That gave him the confidence he needed to unleash his magic in the important matches on a regular basis.
It's hardly a farfetched claim when Messi fans on this board shout GOAT when he scores four goals against a team who can't defend properly. That's what you call an overreaction.
The WRONG one has arrived to anoint Ronaldo.
Unlike you, everything I've ever said about Ronaldo has been without bias. I've always been very eager for him to succeed like he is doing now but in his Man Utd days he was the epitome of a flat track bully and everyone who doesn't support Utd knows it.
If you can imagine Zidane's touch combined with Pirlo's vision and Roy Keane's will to win then you have some idea of the genius of Diego Maradona.
