Though Man U is not a one man team, Ronaldo does have attacking influence. I have seen 3 defenders crowding around him whenever he gets the ball. One on one, not even the best defender can mark him.
The scary part is when Rooney is firing on all cylinders. So with a combo of attackers the opponents have to crowd around the penalty box and this is respect and fear of Man U. Even the Liverpools will crowd their box but not the Arsenals and Chelskis.

Latest transfer rumour:
Despite the transfer window being closed, the tabloids continue to link United with a big-money summer swoop for Atletico Madrid captain Fernando Torres.
The Spanish international striker has long been painted as a target for Sir Alex Ferguson, and rumours emanating from Spain suggest that he could be set to leave La Liga in the summer.
Atletico sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch was quoting as saying: "To hold on to Fernando Torres, a product of the youth system seems virtually impossible."
As that long-running saga continues apace, so too does that of Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite United's repeated insistence that the winger is going nowhere, Europe's top clubs continue to voice their interest in him.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Inter Milan have all been linked with the 22-year-old, but United insist no sale will take place at any price.
Another transfer rumour from Spain concerns Racing Santander centre-back Ezequiel Garay. On 20 February, the Daily Mail quoted the 20 year-old Argentinian as saying: "It's a real joy that a team as big as Manchester has noticed me."
Actually Man U game mixes crosses and passes. Sometimes opponents play 4 5 1 to curtail the passing game so choice gotta cross the balls. I am sure once Man U can get their passing game, most of their opponents will be dead tired after the game.
Now the focus is on Sat game at Anfield.
Wah lao Man Utd lay out their sleeping bags on the pitch after going 3-0 up .
