Thought it was very close and quiet possibly onside in real time. Here's Neymar's incorrectly ruled offside goal:

That pass though. Ter just amazes me with his feet.
I love his distribution , but TBH i'm bit disappointed with few of the goals he conceded , it not like he was at fault but i was expecting bit more from him , i was expecting him to pull few courtios and Da gea like saves , some blinders .

Perhaps with regular start and more shots to face , he will pull that saves .
Why was Gabi sent off? Here his account of what happened:

Gabi explained what happened. "My words were: 'Jesus, it was a penalty and send off and he told me, 'you’re out'." That has been my lack of respect towards him. I think he should have much more personality and more dialogue with the player. There were 50 people in front of us. That’s what happened. I said 'when you see it on TV, you'll see that it was a penalty and send off’ and he shouted 'you’re out'. That’s all that happened. We all make mistakes. You have to be fair, admit your mistakes and that’s it. There’s nothing wrong with making mistakes, but you shouldn’t go any further and want to be the protagonist", he reflected.

If this is true, shame on the ref for spoiling what was a great game of football.
I always thought players should be able to talk to the referee respectfully about decisions and calls during the game. In Europe all the referee's basically tell the player I'm hearing none of it, so I agree with Gabi if this is true.
That sucks...I feel for Gabi.
I dunno if it warranted a send-off though. A penalty and yellow card?
Keep in mind this is Gabi's account of what happened, not the referee's. It is very possible, even probable, Gabi toned it down for the interview.
He can't complain much because the dive against Masche was outside the box and they still got the penalty..
Isn't Gabi the captain? I think captains should always be allowed to talk to the ref. I see why the refs don't want to talk to players cause usually they yell and stuff but captains should be able to question the ref's decision in a respectful manner.
Captains ARE allowed to communicate with the officials. That's one of the responsibilities of being a captain, isn't it? But like Alfrodo mentioned, we don't know exactly what was said and how it was said. Context is important.

ROFL, I've contacted Matt to change it to "White" mate, if you have trouble logging in at any time, it's cos the username's been changed.
We don't want you here, and I'm not going to accept your friend request ;)
Welcome back, old friend. I'm glad to hear the Ozil-virus has been fixed. I can only imagine what that must have been like. If Iniesta were sold, I would probably lose my mind.
Luckily Torres' form rubbed off into Turan. Else he would have joined CR7 in a two match ban.
+1
Remember how Luis Enrique was suppose to be axed? Feels like a long time ago :P
+1
I won't be satisfied with just a CDR trophy this season. Our squad SHOULD challenge for all 3 competitions. We cannot afford to drop any more points in the league as well.
He still got the starting 11 wrong for Real Sociedad. We would have been 2 points ahead of Madrid. Even though I like his rotations, he under estimated Sociedad that time.
We need a good performance against Villareal, Bilbao and City. Maybe we just need results regardless of how we perform? I dunno how should we measure the teams performance.
+2
Really I still believe its down to MSN, and how good of form are they. If we get them all in form, we are simply unstoppable. Hopefully next moth Suarez really gets going, but Im not betting on it
I think Suarez hasn't been that bad as people are putting him to be. I see him as a decoy. He may not be scoring goals but he does help in creating a lot of chances.
+1
What if he becomes more than a decoy??? Imagine :P
+2
Suarez isn't scoring because he is missing chances... People should watch full games.
Thank you for stating the obvious @ThePandavas xD

Still, If Suarez hits that Liverpool form, oh my god I would run riot all over town butt naked! True story :D
Man I do watch full matches thats why I am saying he is more of a decoy.
He has missed some good chances like against Atletico inside the 6 yard box. But some chances were great saves as well.
He is not a Torres 2.0
Enrique is a Barca man through and through like Pep, of course he was going to be given the chance to finish at least the season.

Although I am still very sad that we got rid of Tata.
I missed most patches of the first half but I think the game was won in that half. After Neymar's second Atletico needed 3 goals to win the game. That was game over for them.

From what I saw in the first half, I felt that Atletico created more chances then us and they had more possession then Barca. I think the fact that A. Madrid needed to score to draw the match worked well for us. They came out to attack something we don't usually see from them. I assumed that they'd change to a counter attacking style after Torres' goal.

We played more counter attacking with our front three. I think we took about 15 secs from the time we turned over possession to score on both Neymar's goals (its something we see more with R. Madrid). Amazing run from Jordi Alba to assist Neymar for his second.
+1
The second half was ruined by red cards and players acting agro.

That first half though was a nail biter through and through :D
Two counter attacks and a goal from a corner... is this real life everyone???


Ronaldinho Jr. strikes again, man he is becoming such an amazing talent, he's so young and still has ways to go, exciting times ahead, as long as both him and the management stay faithful and we stick together. Neymar is just phenomenal this season.

Aside from the first 42 seconds lol, we locked down Atleti perfectly and they couldn't get anything going on the break or in the air. Their penalty was bullshit as Masch brought down their player outside of the box, and just because the dude tumbled into the box, a penalty is given... ugly call by the ref... at least it didn't matter in the end.

After 3 straight W's against them, it is unbelievable to think that we failed 6 times in a row to get a victory over this team last season, and that most of the players that struggled vs them last season are still around. We can also give alot of credit to our new boys for contributing to the change in fortune vs Atletico, like Suarez, Rakitic and Matheiu. I guess it is just Lucho rediscovering the confidence, fluidity and pure destructive power that sat dormant in our club last season, something Tata just couldn't bring out for whatever reason.
+3
Neymar is really getting a head of steam going! he keeps getting better and better!

Not just him of course, it seems this team has finally found that passion it was missing.
Rumours have it that Real Madrid's stadium will be renamed "Abu Dhabi Bernabéu". Hilarious if true.. and some of the comments about the name change are hilarious:

"Halal Madrid", "Yala Madrid"

And Ronaldo is one step ahead!

http://i.imgur.com/f7A13w1.jpg

BTW, if these offend anyone, mods can edit it. I am Muslim and I found them hilarious.
+9
Yala Madrid hahahaha omg...
HAHAHA LOL. that's hilarious XD
Hey! That's my Ultimate Team name in Fifa. Halal Madrid.

Idk how this would be offensive, funny more than anything.
Not offensive at all, and this coming from a practising Muslim!

"Yala Madrid" LOL. I think some Arabs already use this one.
And CR7 will change his name to Ballal...playing for "Yala Almadrid"...allaaaaaaaaaaa......:P
Atletico is a team that we struggled against last season on numerous occasions. And this is the same team that knocked out Real madrid. And for us to win this tie quite easily tells alot about how much we have imporved (still a work in progress, but things are clearly imporving) since last season.

On a side note, absolute disgrace from a few atletico players. for Arda turan to throw a shoe like that, smh...
+1
I thought we got rid of Moronho 'winning at all cost tactics' for good , I guess I was wrong. Shame on Simeone and Pathetico Madrid players, cheap shots and intention to hurt players, is that how you build dynasties , shameful.
+2
Simeone: "Messi alone is more dangerous than Ronaldo, Bale and Benzema put together".

The respect is #REAL.
+13
THe truth has been spoken :P
+3
Messi as always is a damn beast, but in Atleti's case, Neymar IS the danger. 9 meetings against them, 5 goals, 3 at the Calderon.... DAAAMNNNN
+2
But mostly Messi's work ;) hehehe. That's what other fans fail to realize. Stats tell one story which Messi is up there with the best every season. But it's the things he does that you can't put in stats. The way he dribbles, his pin point passing, his movement, his awareness of everything around him. Best in the world. Best in the history.
+2
5 in 3 at the Calderon? Is this accurate? I remember a few Neymar goals but I thought all were at Nou Camp
As much as I wish that tweet were genuine, it is fake.
https://twitter.com/simeone
@Alf

https://twitter.com/hcmauri/status/560566858395299845

maybe he said it during the post-match press conference?
Why isn't anyone else posting it? Surely there would be some credible sources by now...

Here's a snippet of the post match interview:
http://www.footytube.com/video/football-copa-del-rey-simeone-proud-of-beaten-atletico-330905?ref=wv_rel_mp

The only thing he said that was remotely close was, and I paraphrase, 'that Barca had to play off the counter attack, which is unusual for them, but they did really well because they are the best.'

Nothing is mentioned here either:
http://en.clubatleticodemadrid.com/noticias/simeone-we-played-an-extraordinary-first-half
Atletico seems to have our number which is a shame considering the gazzzillions of dollars we have spent.

But, I just wanted to drop by and say congratulations! Incredible incredible pass from Messi to Alba today. I had to pick up my jaw from underneath my desk.

I am bit concerned about Neymar's form too hey! Can you guys tell him to calm down a bit :-)

Edit: and congrats on winning the Copa! Jinxxxxxx

Thanks man! And welcome to footytube!

Sevilla tho
He even scored a screamer against you guys but it meant nothing in the end :(
