Why SAF choose C. Ronaldo as our 1st FK taker? Anytime he takes it he always waste it (ended on the wall...over the bar...).
Why not everybody else that was more talented to take it?
I prefer Nani over CR (he can do a great screamer better than CR & he proved it against spurs & boro) and Anderson I guess (left footed).

And why Scholes ignores it when it comes in dead ball situation? He's a proven long range goalscorer.

what do you think? :cool:

I know what you mean, aparently Owen Hargreaves is the best free kick taker gary Neville has seen! :) Maybe he should have a go sometimes.

I know what you mean,but he doesn't always waste them, he does get them right on the odd occasion, and im sure are midfielders will be lining up to take a FK.

I hear you. Ronaldo is pretty rubbish at freekicks to be fair. Ok he gets his few in and they are screamers when he does but he misses such a high percentage of them. Scholes isnt really a free kick taker. He has a monster shot but its more suited to open play rather than dead ball situations. Tevez and Hargreaves for me are the best at free kicks or Giggsy with his left peg.
Its definitely time for Ronnie to step aside and let someone else have a go. Even Rooney takes better free kicks as well.

Nani.........I heard he can take a good free kick........time will tell.
Yeah... Nani can take the corners really good & created vidic & saha goals from the corner.

Hargo also is a big plus 4 us... lots of options

1. Nani
2. Giggs
3. Hargo
4. That Golden boy! :D

Hargreaves and Giggs are the best free kicks taker at the club. I would like to see Carrick take some though as he has good shooting technique. The only reason why he doesnt take them for us i feel is that we could use his hight in the penalty box.

Hargreaves for me.

i wouldnt mind seeing nemanja take them. He isnt the greatest in the air and strugles with the physicality of corners/free kicks.
lol surely your taking the piss :confused:

although ronnie doesn't score a lot of his free kicks we do seem to get goals and cause problems from them if he gets them over the wall they are well too hot to handle for the keepers.

i'd let ronnie take the ones further out and tevez and giggs to take the ones closer in

of course..all of us love to see that 'rocket ronaldo' again like he did against portsmouth last season and in few other games..i particularly love the free kick he scored against European XI..the best goal from him so far..i hope he can repeat that..but so far he's been disappointing...
