It’s perplexing why they don’t play the ball. Simple ones too.
:lol: Ronaldo was also very selfish in this game and generally moped around like a teenager. I think players get to a point even with him where they stop just looking to play him the ball. His final third play in the last 10 games hasn't been good, several mediocre performances, so that is not surprising. Still, he's a great champion and has to play and be involved.

Actually the reason why he didn't score a goal today was Skorupski and some slightly lacklustre finishing. Rabiot and Cuads were well within their rights to go for goal in those positions. Why would you pass the ball wide if you have a clear sight of goal inside the box and in a central positions?

Fair enough but the Cuadrado one, if he isn’t passing, he should 100% be scoring.
Absolutely. Looking back at that situation, Danilo (Bologna defender) was daring Cuads to shoot and was anticipating the pass to Ronaldo. The positive thing is that we actually got into some dangerous positions today and on another day would have scored a couple more.
