Da Do Ron Ron.


There aren't many Ronalds left are there?

However, if you add an o and maybe a couple of other letters you are likely to get a superstar footballer. This can get extremely confusing so pay attention - especially those who 'don't do football' like Ms Scarlet.



Most of you will be familiar with Manchester United's Ronaldo. Yesterday he was crowned The World's Top Football player. Born into Portuguese poverty his magic feet turned him into a prima donna in no time at all.

This is another Ronaldo - a Brazilian who played for Barcelona.


Sometimes he looks like he's been eating too many of his namesake's burgers.


Ronaldinho is also Brazilian. He was worshipped as a God in Barcelona until they suddenly went off him and threatened to send him to Manchester City.


Naturally poor Ronnie was begging to relocate from Barcelona to Manchester - but it wasn't to be.

So we ended up with another Brazilian - Robinho.

Perhaps it's the lack of a proper Ronald in his name but this lad hasn't quite got the idea yet.

A few years back 'The Manchester Evening News' got used to this.



But Robinho's wag Vivian looks like she occasionally eats a pie.


And instead of driving a fleet of gas guzzling Mercedes, Jaguars and SUVs like Wayne Rooney - he catches the bus.

How refreshing.

but not a Christmas Robin amongst them. . .

(I do get slightly confused by football and footballers, but I can explain the off-side rule!)

You can catch something on the bus where I live.

'Most of you will be familiar...'

How dare you.

Football's the game with round balls, I believe?

It's too early for Christmas on KAZ.
You could just take the 'Ho' from Robinho.

MJ:
You can't sleep can you?

Dave:
Sorry Dave.
I don't think I'm familiar with any other sort of balls.

Fancy that. Hats off to Robinho say I. I've been getting to like him anyway for his nice smiles.... even when he misses. The difference in attitood between him and the smug-prima-donaldo what wears the red is astounding. Oh yes.

And hats off to you too Kaz....next time I get confused about all the variations of Ro/bin/nald/inho (it happens surprisingly often) I will turn to this handy guide.

Rugby is my winter sport. Oval balls.

Just as an uninteresting aside, do you know, there wasn't one single Mancunian in last week's derby!

NiC:
I don't think Prima - Donaldo behaviour would go down to well with City fans.

The handy Ro/bin/nald/inho guide was urgently needed.
So never say I don't tell yer nuffin'.

Dave:
Oval balls?
That's not natural is it?

Scarlet:
I could draw up a short list for your perusal.

Ziggi:
Maybe.
But at £140,000 a week - he might be tempted by a taxi.

Tom:
I think Scholes is back soon.

I like a woman who can handle a pie. But it has to be her own. My pie is mine and not up for grabs. I must admit I am totally confused / unerwhelmed by football. It is hardly "the beautiful game" - either on or off the field. Twister is far more up my street.

Blogger Geoff said...

The modern game is missing those chubby players. Puskas, Man City's own Franny Lee, etc.

The Brazilian Ronaldo knows where the goal is. He's just too knackered to get anywhere near it.

Vivian looks like she would be more at home on the bus....with a big bag of chips

Yes to a list of contenders!
And should we buy Posh a pie?

Wayne Rooney's career can only carry on in the long term if he changes his name to Wayne Ronnie.

I have an Uncle Ron who has very poor eyesight. I don't think he's ever been a footballer, but the poor eyesight suggests that he could have been a Sunday League referee

Blogger KAZ said...

Steve:
Twister - the most fun you can have without taking your trousers down.
Not too good for pie eaters though.

Geoff:
Wayne was chubby until Sir Alec slimmed him down.
He and Ronaldo rely on their feet. Why don't feet get fat?

BEAST:
....and a battered sausage.

Scarlet:
You can buy Posh a pie .. but you can't make her eat it.
But hold on - hasn't she got a couple tucked down her frock?

Betty:
Wayne Ronnie - I love it.
Look after Uncle Ron - with his name he's an endangered species.

The only Ronnie I know is an avid Dundee Utd supporter, fervent racist, and sports a ridiculous pony tail which he thinks makes him look young.

He is, in short, a knob.

Then there's Ronnie O'Sullivan, who is a hairy psycho.

I am still not sure I get it but the second girl has the nicest tits.

Hurray for taking the bus. I do that every day.

Ronald will probably stage a comeback and be a really happening name soon. Wot goes around comes around.

*slopes off to basket nodding sagely*

Football was a better game when players caught the bus - and were called Ron: Springett, Whelan, Boyce, Harris, de Boer. . . not to mention Ron Atkinson and Ron Saunders.

6:25 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Garfer:
Obviously not a good name for a loving, caring soul mate.
Ronnie Sullivan is tooo scary.

Pete:
I think the first girl (Mrs Beckham) probably paid a lot more money for her tits.

Murph:
I don't think Ronald has ever been a popular name for dogs has it?
Do you think Fido and Towser will stage a comeback?

Malc:
You should enter Mastermind - special subject Footballing Rons.
I always confuse Ronnie Whelan with Dave Whelan for obvious reasons.

That's a very bad deal if you ask me

Blogger Donn Coppens said...

My first impression is that he lost his license for driving under the influence..does that make me a bad person?

However he can afford to hire a driver...
so he's either a very modest conscientious Green down-to-Earth kinda guy or a real frickin' cheapskate?

Are you implying that the perkies on Posh are not authentic?
Does anyone else know about this?

4:57 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
I suppose she could take them back for a refund.

Donn:
I think your cheapskate idea is closest - but in a nice sort of way - perhaps he just likes to mingle with the ordinary Mancunians.

Posh denied the boob job - but no one believed her.

9:30 am  
Blogger CyberPete said...

Well, they do get people talking and Becks must like her having them so I suppose it's not going to happen.

In my opinion she should. They are bloody ugly.

Yea Posh & Becks are are going to be soooo funny when they get into old age.a real waste of space.
At least Ronald Ray-Guns has left us!

Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
Becks did seek comfort elsewhere and is usually in a different country from his wife.

Tony:
Growing old gracefully seems to be a problem for the likes of Madonna etc.
Perhaps they'll work for charity e.g. 'The Botox fund for Ageing Celebrities'.

oo-er Kaz, methinks you have got hunky footballers on the brain.

a painful condition.

Lucky they have such good names by way of contraception.

Point taken.

In my fantasy he's one of those guys who claim to be straight but end up with some guy in an alley behind the local chippy with his trousers around his ankles offering you a napkin once he's done.

Laura:
oo-er to you too Laura.
I've certainy got 'football' on the brain.
But my heart still belongs to Thierry - and what a wonderful name that is!

Pete:
Interesting Scenario.
Can bloggers be sued for libel?

I'm not sure. But yes I think he is a pretty gay

I do like women who eat pies.

Well you should know.
I'm a good judge as well as I used to work in Manchester's gay village.

Gordie:
You'd be very happy in Wigan (allegedly).

I have a faulty gaydar, you are lucky.

He is fit but I think he looks too metrosexual.

5:01 pm  
Blogger zIggI said...

metrosexual???

I had to google it and got -

"Metrosexual is a neologism of the 2000s . . ."

so then I had to google neologism and I'm still no wiser!

8:23 pm  
Blogger CyberPete said...

Neologism sounds like a word Miss Kaz would love to explain.

I have no idea but maybe it's on www.m-w.com ?

3:45 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
'Faulty Gaydar' - oops bet that gets you into a lot of trouble.
Better check with me first in future.

Ziggi:
Metrosexual would seem to be a hetero bloke who uses moisturiser and wears colour coordinated outfits.

Pete:
Neologism means 'new word' which people use a lot but may notyet be in the deictionary.
Like 'Gaydar' I suppose.

4:22 pm  
Blogger I, Like The View said...

deictionary being the newest

;-)

actually, if that had come out dietionary it might've been a book with an A-Z of weight loss recipes

(where do I find a hetero bloke who looks after his skin and thinks about his sartorial expression then?)

You completely fooled me there - I googled deictionary!
D'oh!!
Told you I couldn't type.

View 2:
Just because we talk about them doesn't mean they exist - well perhaps they do but I'd settle for g.s.o.h.

Apparently it also means a meaningless word coined by a psychotic. Hmmm.

Metrosexuals also wear those slutty deep V neck t-shirts.

7:58 pm

And I bet psychotics wear those t-shirts as well!
