Ok I keep wondering, we just let Casemiro go and yet we are too exposed in DM. Is this not the opportunity we have been crying for him at the club?

How the hell was this transfer window mis managed in such manner?
Yet we still wanted to sign a DM in Ramires and Gustavo who probably can't do a better job defensively than Casemiro

The one player we could have easily let go and accepted defeat is yet still in Madrid and currently warming the bench. Illarramendi should have been sold if he is no good to us.

Someone please tell me Perez wasn't blind sided by the whole di maria and james rodriguez transfer and let everyother important transfer in shamble
Even we had to sign a Back up striker on Deadline day; though it could have been worse.... We might have signed Welbeck instead

Such bad luck for Jese, I really miss watching him play. Also Carlo said Varane will start this match, Pepe has a small muscle problem

@DaGaza I know, eh?

As far as I can tell it doesn't effect whether or not a player leaves - if they want to leave they usually do, but it effects the pricing.

I was right in 2012 and I'm sure ill be right again this season.... Won't be surprised to see city get knocked out in the group stage
Moe66 (Manchester City) Yesterday
I wouldn't be so sure. I mean Bayern were good but 1-0 and scoring in the 90th minute was a pretty close game, could have been a draw. Roma did very well against CSKA but its not like CSKA is the strongest team in the group and Roma are strong at home, its always more difficult to play away against CSKA in Russia. Bayern look like strong contenders to make it through it comes down to us and Roma and I think if we have our injured players back I think we can beat Roma and take second place but you never know Bayern could lose to Roma. On the other hand, I think we have a more complete squad now then 2012 and our flop summer signings

I somehow think Roma has Bayern's number. Call it a hunch, but something tells me Roma will somehow manage to top the group

Liverpool remains a great team.
And The performance of the players is completely different in the big games.

The first round match will be at Anfield .... And it is difficult Stadium. It will be a real test for the team

Exactly why is it ridiculous that he should return to utd? I do think it will happen some day
Pejvl (Real Madrid) 2 days ago
It's ridiculous that he's returning to United every time we get a bad run of form. Now watch Madrid pull a little wining streak and the rumors about him leaving will disappear instantly. I think Ronaldo could return to United one day, but not right now. I see him ending his career 2 ways:
1) Retiring in Madrid, with a lot of club records standing besides his name.
2) Returning to United for his last season or two

Tanmay 2 days ago
Ronaldo won't retire in Madrid imo. He's a big, big player and towards the end of your career it's lucrative to be a marquee signing for a smaller club rather than sit on the bench of a bigger club (think Ronaldinho). I think he'll be in United for a few seasons, then maybe go to the MLS?
SoccerIsFootbal (Manchester United) 2 days ago
Oh right so utd is a smaller club than madrid, like the mls clubs. That's news to me

^offended too easily? He didn't compare man utd to mls club. And everyone knows Madrid is a better team than man utd in terms of history and title combined. Still confused, why you being offended
Tanmay 1 day ago
Lol dude take it easy. I didn't say that or mean that (I meant the MLS when I said smaller club). Going back to United en route to elsewhere is different, like Kaka to Milan, because it's his former club
Poblenou (Real Madrid) 1 day ago
I definitely think it could happen sooner than everyone expects, because in football anything can happen.

And as of late watching Ronaldo out there, it seems his relationship with Ancelotti and the players isn't too great.

Who knows...
Dtouch (Ajax) 1 day ago
If I were Ronaldo, when I start to decline (aka, fighting for starting spot at a big club), I would want to retire for my boyhood club. Why not? You've achieved everything in football. Now do something for your hometown that is satisfying if less glorious
SoccerIsFootbal (Manchester United) 1 day ago
Maybe I was reading too quickly before but it definitely sounded like you said he would hang around madrid until he couldn't start then got to a "smaller" club like utd OR mls, not united and THEN mls

Timely reminder indeed. I'll go look for them
Badge (Manchester United) Yesterday
Yeah Di Maria made a huge mistake leaving a club that didn't appreciate him properly to one where he's adored by everyone and where he's going to be a key player for many years to come.

Ronaldo won't retire at Madrid, I'm certain of it.
I think he will come back to Utd, but not for another 2 seasons or so
Pejvl (Real Madrid) Yesterday
Di Maria has a little different views on some terms then other people. For him appreciation = money and happiness = money. He's been threatening to leave every year he's been here, and every year he would "feel the love" from the club as soon as he got his rais. He milked us enough, now it Uniteds turn. You got a great player, but don't be surprised if in the end of this season he starts talking that "he doesn't know what the future brings, and that he's not certaint where he will play". Then come the "love" bills to make him happy again
Subhakar7 (Manchester United) Yesterday
@Pejvl.... But that's not exactly the reason why Madrid let them go.... Is it.... They wanted him stay at Madrid and fight for his position with James.... And why would he exactly do that.... He was the key member of MAdrid last season.... And suddenly perez buys a player and to play in his position and ask him to fight for his place in starting 11.... Is this the way he should be treated....
I am pretty sure that its not just about the money(it may be involved, I am not sure).... He would have easily stayed at MAdrid if he thought that his place in the first team is safe.... Even Ancelotti never made any assurances about this.... Madrid acted like they don't care even if he leaves....
Pejvl (Real Madrid) Yesterday
Di Maria and James are really a lot different, it's hard to compare them. Even their original positions are different. Sure it was not all about the money, but I think money was the decisive part. I'm not exaggerating that he asked for more money every next year. Difference this year was that he finished the best seasons of his life, so he wanted a massive pay raise because of it, and looks like Perez finally said no. If he stayed I have no doubt he would have still been a first 11 player. I'm sad that he left, I loved the way he played, but there were always 2 things I hated about him: his constant threats of leaving if he doesn't get more money and his diving
Cjayzz (Real Madrid) Yesterday

Sorry man, but that point is balls.
Di maria threatening to leave every season

1. Perez has clearly been trying to get rid of everything mourinho on the squad. Like he did with Calderon by selling everything Dutch the dude signed. This guy has issues.

- he sold Ozil immediately mourinho left; though I think ozil is not good enough but the move was shocking
- he just sold Lopez in that form and yet still bought anothe goal keeper?
- he just sold di maria also and making the dude look like a money grubbing vilian.... Sad stuff
- he is also trying to get rid of Khedira (though I also feel he is not good enough)
- Arbeloa exit would not be a surprise to me
- pepe on the other hand was nearly sold, till his public feud with Mourinho
I hope you understand the trend....

2. Yes di maria has always wanted to exit madrid, but certainly not for money, but a thing of assurance.
How do you feel if you were a footballer and each transfer window, your club finds you disposable.

I think this season di maria insisted on the exit so as to get a good club considering his amazing performance in the mid of last season after switching back to his natural postion; centre midfield. If not, he would probably see a lot of bench time and end up like some ppl did in real madrid....

3. Lets say its money that was the problem (which it is clearly not), don't you think a player like maria needs a salary increase before he demands it? Had it been benzema who gave a good performance last season, perez would offer him an improved contract immediately before the world cup.

Seriously, real madrid is f****d up in the management no denying; I have monitored for yrs and perez regarless of his business IQ and profit earning for the club seems to always destroy us football wise on the long term.

Ask urself a question, why scatter the 3 man solid midfield we have formed rather than improve it.... I wouldn't see it anyway logical if this was another team, but I have to keep supporting the whites no matter what
Francois01 (Bayern München) 2 days ago
It's really strange to see Kroos playing so deep. He never gets into shooting positions or is able to contribute to attack the way he used to. On top of that he is blamed for not being Alonso. D'oh! I hope Ancelotti changes the formation. Otherwise Toni is better of elsewhere
Pejvl (Real Madrid) 2 days ago
I agree, Kroos is playing great in his current position, but we would get so much more out of him if he's pushed forward, behind the attacker. Currently he's forced to play the DM position, witch requires a lot of defending, but he's not really interested in that. The sooner Carlo pushes him forward the better. It will probably happen when Khedira comes back from injure

Amazing performance, Bale is worth every penny. I don't know what was better, Modric's assist or Ronaldo and Benezema's goal! I wasn't really a fan of Bale when he was at tottenham. Thought he knocked the ball too far in front of him all the time but I got to say he has really flourished into a great overall player, scoring such important goals and providing so many assists!

Danny414 (Real Madrid) 2 days ago
Ronaldo looked sharper than ever. Some insane touches. He's playing as a winger again. Not sure I like the setup. Ball movement was excellent in spells. Kroos is a genius. James looked pretty good again.

If we hadnt lost the last two I think isco varane and illara perhaps would start
