Fergie must be laughing all the way to the bank. Ronaldo is younger, fitter, two-footed, takes players on, crosses the ball, can cut inside, heads the ball, and scores in open play. Beckham has a tattoo on his neck, can't do much, and costs 12m more. Much as I hate Fergie, he rarely sells a player who becomes better at the next club.
It could be worse, you could be France right now, having lost to Greece!! At least England drew 2-2, had a goal disallowed and only lost on penalties. Mind you, the difference is that France have won a World Cup and a European Championship recently.
