Damn !!!!!! Inzaghi have rejuvenation milan , they're dominating Juve
LOL , yup i exaggerated that a bit , but its been a great step up from what they did last season .

Entertaining match nonetheless .
They aren't.but it's an even game.
Yup..they are much better team now.they aren't giving. Any space to juve.
Between its safe to say pogba is the future:)
@4ever , its also safe to say Pogba future lies in Spain's capital ;)
Make sure you guys watch both goals scored by hull city. Amazing finish by jelavic and Diame.
I'm not sure what depo is doing? When are we going to face defenses like this?
As soon as you stop making 600 passes before shooting.
Hurr-durr, I'm a Real Madrid fan and I like insulting my rivals even though I'm not making sense. Have you even watched our games lately? Luis Enriqué plays a quick game, we just face 5-4-1 teams who play with 10 men behind the ball all the time.

Victor Fernández is just a naive moron. He coached in Belgium too and was the worst coach I've seen here in a long, long time.
cuenca starts for deportivo
he played well today.

I'm sifting trough Barcastuffs twitter, posting tid-bits.

Messi practicing dribbling against traffic cones:

"For the first time in history, Barcelona have started the season with 4 wins and 0 goals conceded #fcblive [via mrchip]"

That's really astonishing considering how terrible Barcas defense has been in the past seasons. Hopefully a sing of things to come.

Busquets Jr. showing how well he knows the sensei:

"Messi was only not directly involved, with goal or assist, in 1 of Barcelona's 7 goals so far this season"

quite amazing stuff.. basically this is what henry was talking about when he said at training messi would receive the ball at one goal and dribble through the opposing team and score by himself.

have to ask though, with messi at 27 and ronaldo 29, with both playing at the highest level since their teens, playing 60 games a season, have they already reached their peak? how long do you think they can go at this insane level?
I think as long as both of them play, they will always reach new heights. They have this rivalry where one makes the other better. A motivation sort of. That being said, they won't decline until their 30s.
Why df isn't open yet?
It will be open by evening , happens most of the time .

Surprise surprise !!!!!!!

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2204816-real-madrid-win-legal-case-against-spanish-network-tv3-over-hyena-video

That video makes you realize that how lucky messi is been for not picking up a major injury after all those Tie's .
+4
I honestly don't understand how that case wasn't thrown out. Freedom of speech & freedom of press should've protected that unless they said something clearly slanderous. Expressing an opinion that they played like hyenas doesn't count as slander.
@Jraty , Freedom of speech & freedom of press ? Catalans don't consider themselves free in their own country .
+3
That's a very interesting decision. Slander is usually when someone makes an intentional false statement which can be construed as fact. Calling someone a hyena is not slander. It's hyperbolic or rather metaphoric criticism. I can't believe the judge thinks it's slander.
Real Madrid's debt is reported at €605m, a rise of 11% since last year despite of making €60m from ucl. Di Maria's sale will not be reported until next year so that more or less nullifies the increase. I'd like to see where our debt stands now after the recent spending. We are definitely not going to add more debt through player transfers through next two seasons. Did barca announce its accounts for this year yet? Last year our debt was at around €330m if I remember correctly. If we have a successful season, it is mostly going to be positive in terms of financial position of the club because of the transfer ban.
What? I thought Real Madrids debt dropped? Weird.


For Barcelona:

"The 2013/14 season also witnessed a reduction in the net debt by 44 million euros, meaning that since the new Board took over, this figure has decreased by 143 million, and as of June 30 of this year now stands at 287 million euros, while four years ago it was 431 million."

http://www.fcbarcelona.com/club/detail/article/club-record-income-of-530-million-euros

Suarez' transfer will add to that debt for the next year, but as you said, the transfer ban will compensate.
Yup franky accounts of last fiscal year is already announced , you're right , our debt in 2012/2013 books was €331m which is reduced by significant 44m and our debts stands 2013/2014 books stand at €287m , this 44m reduction is in line with board strategy of reducing debt by 40m per year .

Positive effect of transfer ban ? though its likely but i doubt that will be significant , especially when you consider we already exceeded our budget of 50m net spending per season and already exhaust half of next season transfer budget , with increase in players valuation we will incur more amortization cost with perhaps a little decrease in wage bill .

I have said this before that this board have done good work managing the finances but at expense of ethics & values , with plan of new stadium we will enter in difficult period financially and i hope we find a stable management team that will work wonders in both finance while not harming club image .

@JRaty , from where you got that Suarez bit ? as far as i understand we didn't borrow any thing on that 75m net spending which we did this season .
Any expenditure adds to the debt and a sale reduces it by corresponding amount. The only difference is player value is amortized over the term of the contract whereas a sale is reflected as a lump sum in the accounts. So really speaking the recent spending won't be reflected on the books for their full value. Nevertheless, it's great to see our debt being reduced so dramatically. There was a time when people were talking about bankruptcy at barcelona not too long ago.
Real issue for Madrid is that out of this €605m debt €361m is short term loan which fails due within one year , though they do have short term loan assets ( monies owe's by other clubs and parties ) which currently stands at €267m , which leaves them €94m net which they have to pay within a year .

BTW calm your tits guys , wizard perez have every thing under control , apparently Fly Emirate is close on striking a deal with Madrid over naming rights , Stadium name in considerations are “Fly Emirates Santiago Bernabeu, Fly Emirates Bernabeu or Bernabeu Fly Emirates."

and also don't forget about them shirt sales ;)

BTW any news over camp nou naming right ?
Malik,

So you're saying that Barcelona had that 75m all in assets? Even then, it'll be a 75m expenditure that'll eat in to the operating income for the coming year.
so...anybody getting FIFA 15?
I call it Ultimate Team 15 :p that's the only reason I get it. But I reckon now that they brough the create a tournament mode, me and my friends will be playing lots. And yes, I pre-ordered it.
What console? ?...if its ps4 add me: ARC201 :)
Yep it's ps4 and will do my friend. If you don't mind writing your psn on my wall, there's still about a week left and I don't go on my ps4 unless I'm playing fifa :p.

Ultimate team is the only reason I get FIFA every year.
"Asked specifically whether James suits the 4-3-3 shape favoured by coach Carlo Ancelotti as well as Di Maria did, Perez appeared to not think the question entirely relevant.

"I do not know how James plays," he said. "But he had a great World Cup and we wanted him here.""

http://www.espnfc.com/real-madrid/story/2044070/real-madrid-florentino-perez-james-rodriguez-agenda-angel-di-maria-xabi-alonso

Not sure if joking...

Another snipet:

"A new plan to reduce the number of youth teams Madrid runs was also under consideration, Perez revealed.

"The objective is to reduce the teams in the 'cantera,'" he said. "We are looking into Castilla and Madrid C being merged, to reduce the youth teams by one.""

I know better than to post anything but praise when it comes to Real over at the Real Madrid forum.
+2
Jray I think you could have posted this over there. It is an interesting talking point. I dont like it. reduce our youth acadamy? OKAY PEREZ/board. Maybe he is playing stupid on the James question.

Apart from Kroos, everything that happened this summer was kind of a nightmare for myself and other fans.
+1
Danny,

Maybe, but it's not worth the risk. On the internet it's easy to see what I posted as trolling just because I've got Barcelona next to my name, so I try to stick to the Barca forum so as not to unnecessarily stir trouble.
+3
This is pretty terrible coming from the club President. Even if he doesn't go through with this, not exactly a morale boost for the youth.
+1
Jraty would get the "worst person ever" award within minutes if he posted anything critical about madrid on the madrid forum. The only thing people do quicker than "like" a post is flag any post which makes them uncomfortable.
@JRaty just remove (Barca) next to your name we all already know you're a Barca fan this will help take away the sterio types when going to other forums. Hope this is helpful ;)
