    Hasn't Perez put a rule of submitting a huge deposit to contest for the seat club president?

    I heard it basically makes it impossible for anyone else to win.



    My God,he is worse than Benzema - just 2 goals in 13 games.....actually that's pretty much the number of goals I'd expect Benzema to score when not playing with the two best players in the world and DiMaria and Modric and Xabi and Ramos.....




    And they haven't learnt from the above.
    Carvajal had to go to Leverkusen to actually get his chance and prove himself,Nacho(God I hate that name,for I have forever linked them to Latrinos) is being wasted,Morata will depart 100% (and trust me,he'll kick ass elsewhere)...only Jese is coming through,hoping he doesn't fall prey to 'The President's Frenchman'.


    When will Perez and his cronies leave the club alone?

    we expected that but the regular fan didn't
    remember the myth was created about benzema being a big match player, because of his record in champions league and matches against barcelona
    i exposed it as false long time ago

    i'm not going to complain about it since i hate how the celebrations are phony now
    all the players are asked to do the same thing

    about malaga, yes, the season was a disaster
    they lost all their good players
    nad now they play an arab marketing player

    Compilation with some of the best goals:

    I enjoyed watching the 2013/2014 Champions League season and feel that Real Madrid were deserving winners – while they have a huge global appeal and frequently try to capitalize on that, they still promote quite a few Spanish players through the youth ranks and their teams usually possess a Latin core of footballers. Athletico Madrid (despite their relatively small budget) under Simeone will be among the main contenders next season as well and will be even hungrier for success. The one disappointment from my standpoint is that the Eastern European teams seem to have fallen even further behind compared to previous seasons (and it’s also the case that they are no longer that different from the ones from Western European countries in terms of personnel selection, Shakhtar Donetsk being one example of a very international club from this region) and I don’t see a team from this part of the world sending shock waves and eclipsing Dynamo Kiev’s achievements from the late 1990s and 2000s any time soon.

    Real beat Sevilla 2-0 in yesterday's UEFA Supercup 'Final'.
    The Real team is so good now,its unreal.Modric,Bale,Ronaldo(who scored both goals) were on fire.Kroos,James Rodriguez were competent,and they'll get better as they settle further.Benzema was much like a deer in the headlights,unsure of what to do,when his teammates were creating chance after chance.His horrendous stuck out like a thorn in comparison to the super-slick passing of his teammates.


    Bale's cross for Ronaldo's first goal was a thing of beauty:

    I'd love to see Neymar even try that^.



    And Ronaldo somehow made a goal out of this horrendous pass by Benzema:
