Man United boss and winger bag Barclays monthly awards! Deserved?

by Dexter


The people at have brought us some interesting news! Manchester United’s boss Sir Alex Ferguson and goal machine gun Christiano Ronaldo have scooped the Barclay’s Manager of the Month and player of the month awards for January.

No doubt Ronny will add the award (his third player of the month accolade) to his trophy bedecked room of mirrors, and spin around in a whirl of glory, checking himself out and the awards too in the process…But the more pertinent issue is are these accolades deserved? The Christiano Ronaldo player of the month case is pretty much open and shut, the man has been a velvet locomotive much all season, scoring at will and with metronomic efficiency – bagging 6 goals in 4 Prem games this month alone, oh and he did all that from the wing.

The case for the Lord of the Ferg is just as obvious, starting off 2008 with a 1-0 win over Birmingham City, before a romping 6-0 home trouncing of Newcastle United (including a Ronaldo hat-trick.) The Portuguese winger then scored a last minute goal in the 2-0 away win at Reading, before bagging a double in United’s 2-0 home win against Portsmouth.

Any arguments, surely not?
