‘Injured’ Madrid beaten by in form Barcelona.

Luck favours Barcelona this time to win the battle between Real Madrid And Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Barcelona beat Real Madrid 2-0. But scores doesn’t tell everything. Real Madrid also played equal as inspite of severe injury problem as Barcelona but luck was not with them.

Barcelona missed a penalty. Then Barcelona scored from a corner at the late stage of the match. Later at the last minute of the match Barcelona strikes the second goal from a counter attack.

Due to this loss Real Madrid are now 12 points behind to Barcelona.

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo: I Want to Play for Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo has finally broken his silence.

Speaking from the Portugal training camp in Switzerland today, he has finally stated where he intends to play next season: Real Madrid. He told Terra magazine the following:

“I want to play for Real Madrid, but only if it is true they are eager to pay me and Manchester United what they have been saying they will.”

The statement will come as a blow no doubt to Manchester United and all its fans across the world. Ronaldo seemingly thinks his career will progress further if he joins Madrid, and money also seems to be on the mind by the tone of the quote above.

He also added “However, it does not depend on me. It is important to send a message.

“From now on I will not talk again about this until the end of the Euros. It is not worth asking me because I will not reply.”

Looks like United have a crisis on their hands to replace the goals aplenty that Ronaldo provided. Dont know what else to say really. I’m still in shock. Seems money has prevailed once again in luring a superstar to Spain.

I’ll still remember Ronny for the man who broke records, dazzled us with style and speed, and also for driving us toward back-to-back titles and our first European Cup since 1999.

You’re not the first legend to leave the club, and you wont be the last legend to don the red shirt…but no one man is bigger than the team and I’m sure not only Man United fans will echo these thoughts, but football fans in general.

Real Madrid Vs Barcelona : ‘El Clásico’.

REAL MADRID Vs BARCELONA

Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona go into battle at the Santiago Bernabéu today. As past encounters have shown, though, form can count for little when it comes to ‘El Clásico’.

Real Madrid already won the title of Spanish La Liga this season. But Barcelona still in search for the second place in the league to not to play UEFA Champions League Qualifying round and directly go to the group phase. They are still behind of Villareal who are in second position.

Barcelona have to present guard of honour to Real Madrid today because Real Madrid is Champion of the League now and Barcelona have to follow the rule in Santiago Bernabéu today. That will be a big moral booster for Real Madrid players and fans.

As a Real Madrid fan I will be happy to see this. But I am expecting interesting ‘El Clásico’ today and hope Real Madrid will win at home and celebrating the Title at home. But I know that barcelona is a very strong team and they will not give let it easy for Real Madrid. Barcelona will try heart and soul to beat Real Madrid infront of Real Madrid fans.

Real Madrid are set to rub salt into the wounds of arch rivals by parading their 31st Spanish league trophy when they host Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Wednesday.

Real fans waited until the early hours to celebrate with the players at Cibeles fountain on Sunday night after Real retained the title with a thrilling late 2-1 victory over Osasuna.

The celebrations could go into another dimension when Real are presented with the trophy in front of a full house at the Bernabeu – although football is likely to dominate with Barcelona in need of the points to wrest second place from Villarreal.

“It will be a great party against Barcelona that is for sure,” said Real coach Bernd Schuster. “We deserve this title as we have been the best team this season and now we can enjoy it.”

Barca thumped Valencia 6-0 in their last match and unlike Real they have something to play for as they bid to overtake Villarreal who are currently four points ahead in second.

“This was the best way to go to the Bernabeu – with high morale. There are three key points at stake and we’ll go to win,” said Argentine forward Lionel Messi.

As Barca set out to avenge their 1-0 loss to Real at the Nou Camp in December they will do so without the suspended Samuel Eto’o and Deco.

While Real-Barca is the obvious highlight of the midweek fixture programme there are several other games with high stakes.

So let’s see another exciting ‘El Clásico’.

Real Madrid won The Spanish La Liga Title for 31st time in their history!!!

The aircraft Real Madrid CF has landed at a Liga title airport and everything is in order. So you may heave a sigh of relief. Because Real Madrid have at long last won La Liga 2007-2008. Because Real Madrid have deservedly won La Liga 2007-2008. Because after flirting so dangerously with the trophy mistress, los Meregues have ultimately locked the wedding ring.

Because the teasing and toying and playing catch with the pole position is now a thing of the past. Because Real Madrid have encapsulated their first successive Spanish league conquests in 18 years.

Yet Schuster’s triumphant side hasn’t only relied on spirit this season. They have coupled efficiency with discipline, married steel to silk and although goals have been leaked in like Mr. Ocean’s team stealing into safes, the midfield and the stikeforce have compensated for those lapses.

Goalkeeper Iker Casillas might have had more shots spit at him than any other custodian in La Liga this season but Guti has more assists for goals than any other player in the league with 14 in 24 starts. The latter clause becomes more enticing when you consider that the 11 matches that Guti hasn’t started, Real have actually won!

Which finely tees us to the contribution by other players in the championship conquest. This season Saint Iker has of course been the safest pair of hands in Spain again worth 18 points (at least) and Guti the temperamental genius somehow inspired by Schuster to temporarily delete the “temperamental” tag but it has been the likes of Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Wesley Sneijder, Mahamadou Diarra, Fernando Gago, Raul, Robinho, Arjen Robben, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Gonzalo Higuain who have shaped the edge. Virtually the entire team really.

Pepe has gradually developed into the €30 million Real Madrid splashed out at FC Porto last summer, Sergio Ramos has been the best right back in Spain and even past-his-sell-by-date Fabio Cannavaro has positively contributed (at times). Wesley Sneijder took over from Guti when the latter was insipid and off key, Mahamadou Diarra has been a rock in Real’s midfield when he has received the support, Fernando Gago is enjoying himself and has been passing the ball around exquisitely, Robinho has mischievously sprouted glimpses of his world class Pele side and Arjen Robben has been a Voldemort for opposition defenders in the last couple of matches when he has got rid of his Injury Demon.

Raul has 17 league goals to his credit this season and with three assists and countless running and constructive passes. Ruud van Nistelrooy’s 12 goals have arrived in spite of his injury plague and three goals in his last three matches all after coming off the bench has earned Gonzalo Higuain the super sub status.

So you see it has been a team effort, Real Madrid’s conquer of Spain. When one of the soldiers have puked and fallen on the ground, another has held the line. With 73 goals in 35 matches, Real Madrid cannot boast to have played romantic fantasy football that President Ramon Calderon promised at the art of the season after getting rid of the “boring” Capello but it has been Real’s efficiency and consistency that has ultimately carried them home but not dry as champagne bottles are being uncorked even as you read this.

There was a whisper of conspiracy in Spain ahead of Real’s trip to Pamplona that they would actually not win at Osasuna on Sunday night preferring to win against FC Barcelona at the Santiago Benabeu on Wednesday to conquer Spain. But if it’s one thing to win the championship with a win over the Catalan rivals, then it’s quite another—and more relishing—to have them form a Guard of Honour and salute the champions.

Which Barcelona shall do in El Clasico on Wednesday night.
