After we tallied your votes (174 in all) Cristiano Ronaldo was voted best player of the first half of the season for 2010/2011. He came in ahead of Vidic and Messi although won the vote by a fair margin.
Ronaldo has simply been brilliant in La Liga this year. He leads the top scorers list by 5 goals ahead of nearest rival Messi. 23 times he has netted this season, out of the 46 times Madrid has scored, meaning that he has scored half of Madrid's goals in the League.
Madrid still lie second on the table only by two points. Ronaldo did not fire against Barcelona first time they me this seasons. Althoguh CR9 is inspired to lead Mourinho's team to a title and a good performance against Barcelona may just spark that.
Madrid are also hunting for glory in the Champions League, with a replay of the tie that saw them knocked out of Europe last year (against Lyon), Madrid will be hungry for revenge.
Play the Advantage would like to congratulate Ronaldo on his superb start to 2010/2011.
