Who is responsible for Real Madrid’s bad performance?

I think it is the current Real Madrid management. As a fan I think it’s those people who make Real Madrid policies. Current Authority Real Madrid is completely not experienced and I thin even they don’t know what they are doing.

The authority and policy maker and current management blaming Team Manager Bernd Schuster for the bad performance, but I don’t think the Manager is responsible for it. It is due to complete failure of the Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon and His Sporting Directors. But they are trying to hide their role. They are trying to use their power, sacking the coach and manager and hide their fault.

As a fan I have few words to tell.

Previous season, Real Madrid played beautiful and in style and they became the League Title holder. After that the management’s duty was to hold current players and bring some new face to strengthen the team. But the authority just failed to land any new good player. We only heard a lot of rumor, but they were false. Even the authority failed to hold the current players. They sold out good and key players. Robinho, Julio Baptisa and some other talented players left the club. But no replacement bought for them. As a result Real Madrid team’s morale decreased. Team is now weaker than previous season.

Real Madrid’s this years target was to bring UEFA Champions League Trophy. But it’s seem far way to get it. Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus, Inter Milan, AC Milan are far ahead of them. And this is because of current policy makers.

Coach Bernd Schuster again and again asked for a quality scorer stricker. But President and sporting directed didn’t hear him and they just ran for Christiano Ronaldo. As a result they failed to land Christiano Ronaldo but also loose team’s one of the key player and best talent Robinho. The president and Sporting Director can’t ignore this blame.

So I think not the manager or coach should resign or sacked, but The President and  Sporting Director should resign now and bring experienced President and Sporting Director, which will be good for team. And team have to buy some new quality players to replace the players who left the team. Unless in this season, Real Madrid will not able to win any trophy.

Well said-Blatter.

Stop treating Ronaldo like slave, Blatter tells Manchester United.

Ronaldo, a boyhood Real Madrid fan, has been linked with a move to the Spanish capital since the end of last season But his current club, which is another big name in Europe, Manchester United creates a barrier to prevent this transfer and Ronaldo’s dream move where Real Madrid is ready to give World Record fee for this transfer.

In this situation FIFA President Sepp Blatter has urged Manchester United to stop treating Cristiano Ronaldo like a ‘modern-day slave’ and let the Portuguese player join Real Madrid if he wants to.

Wading into the protracted wrangle over the 23-year-old’s future, Blatter said that the current practice of tying players to long contracts amounts to “modern slavery”.

And he urged Manchester United and Real Madrid “to sit together” if Ronaldo wants a move to the Spanish club.

“The important thing is, we should also protect the player,” Blatter told Sky News on Thursday.

“If the player wants to play somewhere else, then a solution should be found because if he stays in a club where he does not feel comfortable to play then it’s not good for the player and for the club.

“I’m always in favour of protecting the player and if the player, he wants to leave, let him leave.”

Blatter believes the issue raises questions about the way transfers and contracts are dealt with in the game.

“I think in football there’s too much modern slavery in transferring players or buying players here and there, and putting them somewhere,” he continued.

“We are trying now to intervene in such cases. The reaction to the Bosman law is to make long-lasting contacts in order to keep the players and then if he wants to leave, then there is only one solution, he has to pay his contract.”

And I think Sepp Blatter is right.

EURO 2008: Final*** Germany 0-1 Spain. ***

Germany 0-1 Spain. The scores showing a tight match. Yes, it was a tight match. But I think Spain played much better than Germany and the better team wins the match.

Even the presence of captain Michael Ballack could not help Germany contain a crafty Spanish team that exploited a slow-footed defence and dominated the European Championship final Sunday in every department.

Instead of Germany winning its record fourth title, it was Spain that captured its second championship after decades of trying with a 1-0 win at Ernst Happel Stadium. Luis Aragonés squad overcame a physical German side with a goal from Fernando Torres.

Fernando Torres was the hero for Spain by firing them to Euro 2008 glory against Germany in Vienna – and ending 44 years of underachievement with a 1-0 victory. Fernando Torres simply ran around Philipp Lahm when he scored the winning goal in the 33rd minute. Earlier, he had easily beat Per Mertesacker, Germany’s tallest player, to head against the post.

Spain had a chance to go 2-0 up soon after but the unmarked David Silva badly fluffed his volley after being picked out by Andres Iniesta inside the area.

After the break the Germans sparked into life, with Ballack hitting the side-netting of Iker Casillas’ goal with a volley from the edge of the box soon after, before the Chelsea man and Bastian Schweinsteiger both fired in dangerous crosses.

The match threatened to boil over in the 65th minute when Silva and Lukas Podolski went head-to-head, but despite the appearance of a butt from the Spain man, he escaped a card.

Spain very nearly doubled their lead in the 67th minute when Sergio Ramos broke the offside trap to power a Xavi free-kick goalwards with his head but Lehmann diverted the ball for a corner.

From the corner Iniesta saw his shot cleared off the line by Torsten Frings, before the Barcelona man was denied by Lehmann with another effort soon after.

Luis Aragones’ side still looked the more likely scorers over the closing stages and, with Germany producing nothing to worry Casillas in the Spain goal, the Iberian nation deservedly walked off with the Henri Delaunay trophy.

Heavyweights in European football who produce a constant stream of individual talents, Spain had not won a major tournament since 1964 but finally shook off their tag of being chokers, not able to cope with the pressure of the highest stage.

When Spain goalkeeper and captain Iker Casillas accepted the trophy on a stage, the Spanish fans began chanting the melody to their national anthem, which has no words. Thousands of camera flashes went off as the players jumped in place, then headed onto the field to show off their prize.
