Go and troll Chelsea fans, jeez
Now for something that actually is worth the time Villarreal/Granada is just insane. Wonder what happened to Caseres not even on the match squad tonight? @Vasilevskiy has he dropped that much?
I knew he was relegated to the bench in the 2nd half of last season but damn what a fall
What do you by nursery beat his team? Uhhhh, yes Kane was better. First off, let me say that in respects to Harry, he doesn't come close to Messi's career and even talent level. Messi will go down as one of the best players of all-time and probably one of the best athletes of all time due to his talent level and pure skill he possesses. But Harry Kane was better than Messi two years ago and there is no argument there.
Sure thing. Sometimes its better to laugh and move on than to argue with someone without a clue.
Kane better than Messi?
Statistically, Messi was the better player, but Kane did more with less than Messi able to pound four goals against the likes of Malaga, Las Palmas, Leganes, Granada, Gijon, Girona, Rayo, etc., with Neymar and Suarez by his side.
Iwobi was better than Messi last year too
At this stage it actually makes sense just to keep Bale anyway, which Zidane has confirmed.
FFS, reaction. Anyway, both papers had a blurb on how Pique gave Dembele an earful after the goal.
Just finished watching the Valencia-La Real game and Odegaard looked like the best player on the pitch.
Between the performances of him and Ceballos, Madrid have a lot to look forward to next season.
I doubt either can crack the team even if they do well abroad...
Ceballos played great against a very likely to be relegated Newcastle and another poor side in Burnley.
He didn't do anything great with Real Madrid when he did play, and the key to playing for a great team is consistency. It isn't just turning up for two games here and two there. If you want to make it to the top you need to have 30-35 games of the same performance level every season.
Yeah, pretty much. You need to do it week in and out this is why couts was such a pointless, stupid and reactionary buy
Cou never did it week in week out either. A lot of people like to talk about how great he was for Liverpool. Yeah, he was great if you watched 20-23 of the league games. The players that fans talk great about now are great a lot more often than that. The other ones he was absolutely dire or average. When he was at his worst, which is way worse than he's played for Barcelona even, he was unplayable in a top flight game. In his last full season, Mane was actually a lot better than him until he got hurt. A lot of people think a great player is the guy you watch have some good games every time you turn on the TV, but it's the player who has them even when you don't.
Ceballos, I mean, who knows? It might turn out that he has a strong performance in 20-30 games or so. You do have to account for some of the opposition though. Smaller teams in England do have a little quality, but it's almost all up in the forward lines. The midfielders he played against the last two games are dead dog terrible. To play at a team like Real Madrid, you have to bring it against Barcelona, Bayern, Juve, Liverpool, Atletico, PSG, City, etc. The expectation is to win the Champions League so the player has to be strong against all those teams. What happens against your Burnley's and Osasuna's matters but doesn't matter that much in comparison.
Oh I agree couts was never consistent which is why I brought him up.
Well, I just mean in the sense that people were talking about how they were excited when there was talk he would be loaned to them, talking about what he could do in the league. In Germany anyway, I don't know, he could actually be consistent in every game. The problem is that the average player there is strong in the tackle. There's a better chance than in England though. We already know what he can do there, Liverpool struggled to finish fourth with him in an important role and he had some bad games.
We'll probably have this discussion again as there's no way Bayern will pick up his buying option.
I just don't know why anyone would think Ceballos is top club material after those two specific games.
Yeah, I doubt they pick up the option he'll probably end up James 2.0.
Barcelona has got to get rid of their Manager. His tactics are terrible.
Yeah, let us all blame it on the coach. Not that Barcelona are overrated or anything like that.
How is it that Real won? I thought they and Zidane sucked? That’s what i’ve read during preseason.
lol, I hope we draw you in the CL.
As a Madridista, I am VERY happy with the results this weekend... but it is matchweek 1, let's not draw any premature conclusions.
Valverde is not a bad coach but his football is too conservative for a club like Barcelona.
These Valverde talk make me think. Why is Barcelona with all their money and reputation cannot bring Pep Guardiola home?
Because pep is not looking for money only... he’s out there proving he can do it on a rainy night in Norwich
They'll probably get a lot of money for them then Lol.
To fund the Pogba transfer
This game has now flow. Way too many fouls from both sides.
Separate names with a comma.
