    Does this bother anyone else as much as it bothers me?

    i hate it when players dont celebrate important goals just because they are playing against their old team. it happens all the time and ronaldo apologizing to the man u fans really annoyed me. he had just scored a massive goal that put them through to the next round of the champions league against possibly the biggest club in the world and he just did nothing. it was like he felt bad doing it.

    Shaun Wright-Philips did it earlier this season against Chelsea. QPR bottom of the league, playing against their closest rivals. He scored an excellent goal to put them 1-0 against a team who nearly ruined him and he just walked away.

    I understand there is a respect for the fans but if a spurs player didnt celebrate a goal against arsenal or in any big game i’d be pretty pissed off with them.

    i think it depends how big an impact that playe rmade on the club.Some players do have genuine feelings for clubs and i think ronaldo really does love utd.He has only spoken highly of the place.SWP on the other hand did nowt at chelsea and i can’t see why he didnt celebrate.Inside ronaldo would have been on fire after that goal.I respect some players who do and other shams i don’t.

    I think robbie keane started doing it first.

    sean, i understand the ronaldo one as he was very respected there and still is. however he didnt even smile. it just reminded me of the SWP one and i remember that really annoyed me.

    Cant be any teams left for Keane to celebrate against.

    i think the players need to even give a salute to their travelling fans.

    Were most spurs fans happy with keane before he moved to liverpool?Seems to be the only real club he settled at

    i loved him before he left. he was a legend. for me he lost all respect and his legendary status when he turned his back on us. dont mean this in a rude way but spurs were on the up and liverpool were starting their decline. did he move to a bigger club? yes. did he move to a better club? no! he turned his back on us at the first sign of interest from one of his 75 boyhood clubs and then failed miserably there and wanted to come back. i didnt want him back and never sang his name.

    I always think it’s a bit of a mistake to go back to a club, player or manager, it’s like going back to an Ex… there was a reason why you broke up in the first place. In Keane’s case, he never was the same player when he came back anyway….

    he joined us in 08/09 we finished 2nd and got to the qtr finals paxo so he was joining a better team at that moment.Spurs were sacked ramos in october.Our declined started badly at the start of 2010.

    i thought it was the 09/10 season! my mistake. maybe it was his fault then. even so, he turned his back on us and for me he isnt welcome back at the lane.

    he divides opinion here in ireland bigtime.He is our all time highest goal scorer which is great but then again he just moans and gives out constantly

    i hate his attitude. really annoyed when all he would do is complain to the ref the whole game.

    I thought Ronaldo’s conduct was respectful given the welcome he was given. I agree you should show your own fans that scoring matters even if doing it in a respectful way for previous fans.

    itsa, it was incredibly respectful and that is why united fans still worship him, but as youve said i think he should have acknowledged the madrid fans.

    Why should players celebrate goals against Clubs that have given them good times.If a player doesn’t want to celebrate then surely it’s his choice.

    my point was it reminded me of SWP who hardly had a good time at chelsea. hardly ever played and definitely didnt fulfill his potential because of that move. he was also playing QPRs biggest derby whilst bottom of the league in desperate need of 3 points. i’m not saying all players should react how adebayor did against arsenal, but you would expect them respect the fans of the club that they are currently playing for enough to celebrate a goal.

    I agree with Paxton on the SWP one. Its like when Ince scored the equaliser for Liverpool at Anfield in ’99. He celebrated like he’d scored the winning goal in the World Cup Final which made him an even bigger twat to Utd fans than he already was but why would he care as he left under a cloud (Big Time Charlie).
