Agreed, but he was helped by some of the worst defending that I've ever seen.

How do people in Spain feel about him?



There's a movement to get Jese to start over him.

Typical knee-jerk reactions. All things considered, Bale has done very well.

Jese's time will come, and stylistically, I'm not sure that it's a one-to-one replacement, anyway.

They´re high on him. He has some people who doubt his physical durability, however.

he's been tearing it up.

He´s very, very solid. He´s a hard worker, quiet, respectful, confident. He´ll end up being a Bernabéu favorite, no doubt.

On a scale of 1 to 10, the team says they´ve had a 10, as far as 2014 goes. Article also mentions, ´questions of the quality of play, apart´, with which I damned sure agree.

We all knew this was to be for 2014-15, but hey, I´m glad to see where they´re at, at this point.

Bayern de Múnich is still THE team.

ETA Sorry, this was gleaned from a Marca article, which had no English translation.

Oh, to see that impollute white on top of the world again. Ramos, get your shite together.

ETA 2 Ramos is no Hierro, and the fricker wears the captain´s band. May God take us, having already confessed......

Bale interview in As.

quote:


“I feel comfortable playing out on the right wing. I have played in that position for Tottenham and Wales,” said Gareth Bale on Thursday as he attended reporters after a promotional event in Madrid.

The league title race: “We’re in a good position but we will need to win all of our remaining matches to reach our objective. We have an advantage but there are 11 games left to play. If we continue to play well, we won’t have to worry about the other teams”.

Life in Madrid: “It’s taken me a while to get used to the city and the team. Now I’m enjoying my football and especially the weather”.

The Champions League: “Our objective is to win the Champions League but we need to take it one game at a time; with a little luck we might be able to win it”.

Favourites: “All of the teams left in the competition have the potential to win it. There are some very strong rivals left but no favourites; it’s very open”.

Winning the treble: “We’re still alive in all three competitions and we have a chance of being able to win all three but we have to take each game as it comes”.

The Spanish league: “I’ve been quite surprised by the tactical side of it. Spanish sides don’t tend to play long balls up-field; it’s more about possession, slipping your marker and movement off the ball. That’s what makes the Spanish league interesting for me because it requires a high level”.

Not being able to train pre-season: “Obviously it’s something which I regret. Being able to complete the pre-season is important for any player. I’ve trained hard and now I am in top form. I hope I can maintain it during this decisive part of the season”.

Personal marks out of 10: “I wouldn’t know what to give myself, but I’m happy with how it’s going. I’ve improved a lot and I feel good and I’ve still got margin for improvement”.

Playing on the right wing: “Last season with Tottenham I didn’t play as much on the left, I was playing more down the middle or on the right – like with Wales. I feel comfortable playing on the right wing, I’m happy there”.

Help in settling in: “Luka Modric, who I was with at Tottenham, really helped me a lot at the beginning; he’s a great team mate and gave me a lot of advice. He’s also improved a lot too – he’s a world class player. He’s matured and is playing to an extraordinary level”.

Marcelo Now RM´s Fourth Winningest Foreigner

The Brazilian recorded his 139th victory against Málaga and overtook Hugo Sánchez; the winger is behind Roberto Carlos, Di Stéfano and Santamaría.

With their win against Málaga at La Rosaleda, Marcelo reached 139 victories in the Spanish Liga and overtook Hugo Sánchez. The Brazilian is now among the four foreigners who have won the most Primera División matches with Real Madrid. The next legend he could catch up with is Santamaría, who managed 161 victories. Roberto Carlos and Di Stéfano are first and second in the list.

Marcelo is playing in his eighth season at the club, a career that puts his name in the Madrid history books. The season when he earned the most victories was 2009/10, with 28. In total, he has played in 191 Liga matches in which he has scored 15 goals. His record in the Primera División with Real Madrid includes three championships.

I think what I said on the fourth of this month is the appropriate comment, after yesterday´s match:

Ah, I´ll add that while much improved, Benzema is still Benzema (in spite of that spectacular second goal). He was in a position to easily bag four yesterday.

My favorite player on RMs team the past couple of years has been Di Maria... He had a very good game yesterday... I realize he is frustrating, but he always puts in a good shift..

I hope you sell him over the summer.... to LFC

If not, keep him or sell him somewhere other than the EPL..

Ancelotti plays a much more attractive brand of football than Mourinho...

I used to want to sell di Maria, but I really like him a lot. I think he is great in the starting 11, but he is not a 90 minute player and very prone to stupidity.

Some hunnish comments from CRon:

quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: This referee is not ready for these kind of games."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "We played against 12. It's always the same. They don't allow us. Maybe they wanted Barca back in the Liga"


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "I'm not looking for excuses, but this ref is not at the required level for a game like this."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "If Barcelona lost today, they would have been out of the race. After five years here I finally understand how things work."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "You (media) have been here for many years more than me. I have never seen RMA been favoured by the referees..."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "I'm sure that no matter all this, we will win the Liga"


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "We are sad because we deserved more, but we're fine."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "Real Madrid is the biggest club in the world."


quote:

Cristiano Ronaldo: "They don't want us to win La Liga."

He learned from the best.

This is where he's wrong:

quote:

He must have forgotten about the Elche game.

But, the dude got knocked over twice in the box without a penalty over both fixtures. I see why he feels that way.

ETA: Reputation obviously doesn't matter to these referees because Neymar.

He's a great player but kind of a dumbass. My dislike of him, and to a lesser extent Sergio, is disproportional to his actual quality as a player.

Think that it's kind of a wash outside of its appearance against a handful of teams. Honestly, it probably helps to have Mesut out of the team and a functional Luka Modric in it.

quote:

Real Madrid have the transfer of 27 year-old left back Guilherme Siqueira sealed, according to TV show Tiki-taka.

The Brazilian was on the verge of joining The Whites last summer, and will replace Fabio Coentrao, who the club will sell to generate funds.

Siqueira, who was born in Florianapolis, started his career at Ipatinga and 10 years ago signed for Inter. From there he went to Udinese, who loaned him out to Ancona. In 2010 he joined Granada, where he played for three seasons. Last summer he was on the verge of joining Real Madrid, however on the last day of the transfer window joined Benfica on loanloan due to the fact Coentrao didn't leave the club.

"There was a contract with Real Madrid for half an hour, but because Coentrao didn't go to Manchester United, it didn't come off", said Granada's sporting director Juan Carlos Cordero.

Benfica have the option to buy the player for €8m.

He has played 24 times for the Portuguese league leaders this season (1,986 minutes) and has scored once.
