Fifteen games have gone this season. Real Madrid sit on 37 points. Barcelona and Atletico Madrid (of all teams) are on 40 points each. 3 points is all Real Madrid need to get hold of that top spot. Maintain that spot till the end of the season and Real Madrid can celebrate, safely, their [...]
Seems like there are two world class players for every position at Real Madrid. Mourinho was the man who put together such a squad. Obviously he did not give much consideration to the costs involved. Carvajal and Arbeloa also, regularly, compete for the same position and that is of a right back. Both are world [.
Di Maria was the most dangerous player playing for Real Madrid in the 4-0 victory over Valladolid even though Bale scored 3 goals and Benzema also added one of his own from a excellent Bale cross. In the post match presser, Ancelotti did not talk about Bale or Benzema taking charge and scoring for Real [.
Real Madrid won their match against Valladolid 4-0. Bale scored 3 routine goals and made the other with a Beckham like lobbed pass to Benzema. That put Real Madrid at 37 points for the season, three behind Atletico Madrid and Barcelona (who both are on 40 points) after Barcelona lost their tough away match [.
Arbeloa was and probably is a good defender. Before the match against Galatasaray he was always known as a good defender. Just good. Not brilliant or highly athletic. That was the main problem why he was always considered as a player who would not win you matches but just be there to hold things [...
Real Madrid won their match against Galatasaray by 4-1. You would think Real Madrid basically rolled over Galatasaray but that's not true. We pummeled them to death with 10 men. Amazingly Real Madrid played with 10 men for 70 minutes of the game as Ramos was sent off for holding back a Galatasaray attacker when [.
No Messi, no win for Barcelona. In fact they were made to look pretty average in this game. Ajax scored two quick goals in the first half against Barcelona. As luck would have it (or maybe UEFA?) Ajax became another team who got a red card against Barcelona in a Champions League game and [...]
Ancelotti is without his talisman C.Ronaldo. He had a thigh injury last week and is out of this mid week clash against Galatasary. Real Madrid need 1 point to top the group and get a relatively easy team in the round of 16 of Champions League (hopefully). There is no need to risk Ronaldo and [...]
Not talking about the video game FIFA 14 here. Apparently FIFA does keep a database of some sorts which collects player's data such as the amount of running they did in a given season or the pace with which they ran WITH the ball. Recently, they put out the list for the season [...]
"A World Cup without me is nothing to watch so it is not worthwhile to wait for the World Cup." Further more, after that statement Zlatan was asked about Ronaldo being the best player in the world to which his reply was "I don't know. All I know is that I scored 2 goals and [...]
I don't know what is the problem of the few people who keep on criticizing Benzema no matter what he does. Yes, he has big potential and he has not been the at that level. Yes, he was expected to be close to Brazillian Ronaldo's level by now but he is nowhere close. In [...]
Ronaldo scored a hat trick to take Portugal to the World Cup 2014 at the expense of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's (who's World Cup career is over now) Sweden. Zlatan tried with his two goals but Ronaldo responded duly and in all honesty should have scored 6 goals considering the level of his play throughout the two [.
Real Madrid have a really good, deep and talented squad. In fact, Real Madrid might have the most expensive substitute bench in the world where players with the quality of Bale, Di Maria, Illaramendi, Isco are seen sitting on the bench for a disturbingly large amount of time. Obviously the problem now for Real [.
Bad news first. Khedira got injured while playing for Germany against Italy. Andre Pirlo of all people had a clash with Khedira and even more astonishing was the fact that it was Khedira who came out of that challenge with a tear in his knee ligament. Khedira will miss the rest of the season for [...
Only one of these two is going to play a World Cup game. One almost feels sorry for Ibrahimovic as this would be his last chance to play in a World Cup. Being on the wrong side of 30, Ibrahimovic would be around 37 years old when the next World Cup comes around. Ronaldo on [...]
