I just wanted to say Club Brugge is undefeated for 30 games straight in all competitions. Best team in the world :P Oh, and guess who the midfield maestro is who's also their best player?

Victor Vázquez!

He evolved into a sublime playmaker, similar to Cesc. And this season, I'm not exaggerating when I say he's at Cesc's level when he was about 19. VV nearly won the Gouden Schoen (golden shoe); the yearly award for the best player in Belgium too. He missed out because the idiots from the KBVB (=Belgian RFEF) voted for Dennis Praet, a player of their lap dogs, Anderlecht. He's good too, but Vázquez was better.
+3
And the lord is not even playing
His presence in the team is enough
De Bruyne is destroying bayern 2 goals and assist wolfsburg lead them by 4 goals to 1
Bayern is getting bodied, didn't see that coming...at least not in the Bundesliga :P
And you guys were telling me I exaggerated when I said he was good enough for Barça before. Tsk tsk :)

I'm really happy though; the Belgians are running riot in football, awesome!
+1
So Diego Costa has been hit with a 3 match ban for stepping on a player while running for the ball. Yet Cristiano is allowed to punch and kick players 7 times and get away with a 2 match ban. That's pathetic that a players name and fame can get him out of a long term ban. The ugly side of football.
+2
It has nothing to do with players name and everything to do with different leagues = different rules.
In contrast to EPL, video evidence can't be used to hand out punishments in Liga as they exclusively rely on referee's report.

Look at Ardan Turan's shoe hurl incident as another example where if the ref misses something, nothing can be done about it later.

La Liga rules need to change.
+4
With 2 match ban ronaldo will miss home matches vs Sociedad and sevila , had it been 3 matches he would have missed an away match vs athleti , i was not surprised that they spared him for the match vs athleti .
+3
On the bright side... these are top top players that are being held accountable to their offenses which is pretty awesome. One can get lost in the details but those really are, just as stated above, circumstances on preferences set by the league.

It does call into action though that a player can throw a shoe at a ref and it doesn't merit any fine or ban. Pretty hilarious and pretty fortunate for the player lmao.

Man how many nasty things have we seen from Costa over the years go unpunished? Well it caught up to him and now he will have that spotlight over him forever by everyone. Turan will get his turn I am sure, he is also a repeat offender.

Man... we beat Atletico at their own game on wednesday and it was beautiful watching them break down so easily. It reminded me of when we handed RM their toughest losses.
+2
Let's be honest Che. A 2 match ban is a 1 match ban in reality. getting red carded automatically suspends you from the next match. So all that was added was a 1 match ban. I understand what Bogardidough is saying with the replay rule and it's definitely true. We need to change that rule asap. We also need to have a rule for replays on controversial penalties. I don't care what anyone says, controversial penalties are game changers and should be a very serious part of the game. It would change seasons completely. Teams will no longer be able to dive in the box as it would be punished, players will be very discouraged to cheat in games.
Not too shabby stats from our attackers thus far:
https://twitter.com/BarcaStat/status/560635214322761728/photo/1

I want to give a shout out to Pedro. It takes a certain amount of humility to accept that you are playing second fiddle to MSN and still be content to play hard the chances you get. Very respectable professional. He's not the most talented player but he sure works his tail off.
+2
Pedro deserves a lot of respect and in my opinion, he's good enough to start for a top class team. He would do very well in Arsenal, for example.

Just imagine what you, as a player, would have if your club had Messi, Eto, Ibra, Henry, Neymar, Villa, Suarez, etc., as part of your attack and you knew you had to compete with them.
+2
Yeah, Pedro is the sort of player all top teams badly need. Because he's good enough to be a starter, even a star, for a slightly less great club, but willing to be a super-sub for us instead. Those players are truly as rare as absolute top players; most teams don't have the luxury of having one or two of those in their ranks. Solskjaer was like that for the most successful United team ever, Pedro is ours throughout all these years.

I think this loyalty is yet another benefit from La Masia: treat your youth players well and they'll dream only of playing in the stadium that towers over their academy. Neglect them, and they'll want to move on even if they're offered chances in the A-team. Marc Bartra is becoming another good example: he's one of the most promising defenders in the world, but still only plays about half as many minutes here as he could at, say, Arsenal.
+1
Love how u use us for ur examples haha, Maybe they will follow alexis, cos Pedro= Me likey... u can take flamini... he's good sometimes, well once upon a time ago
No thanks, no more Arsenal players here please.
They'll just be injured all season again lol.
+1
Another one joins the club !!!!!

The second son of Pique and his girlfriend Shakira has been born in Barcelona tonight. Their first son Milan was born two years ago. [md]

Rome !!!!!!!!
+4
Haha, Piqué, you fertile bastard :P I'm happy for them, breed more, I say! The world can use more Shakiras and Piqués. Same for pretty much every one of our players. Get on with it guys :)
So are they going through all Italian cities until they have a complete team of 11?
+1
I guess Turin will be next :P
No, the name is Sasha O_o. Comes Sasha Grey in my mind.
LOL messiDor , but i always though that sasha was girls name .
I just hope to god that both children get the hips of Shakira, because despite how well Pique has been playing, he turns like a truck with no agility.
Cuadrado's transfer to cfc will be completed within the next 48 hours. How many wingers does mourinho need?
Salah going the other way, Schürrle rumoured on his way out. That leaves us with Hazard. Willian is a CAM playing RW. The rest of our midfield options are Cesc, Oscar, Matic, Ramires, Mikel, Ake, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, none of whom are wingers. Jeremy Boga is also on the squad list for the PL, but not the CL. So in truth we are short on wingers. RW is our weakest position in attack. Jose is trying to strengthen the weakest spot and keep the books balanced. All us CFC fans are elated that all this is happening. Cuadrado isn't cup tied like Reus and Douglas Costa. Best possible move we could make IMO.
+5
I'm relieved someone else is getting him. I never liked the idea of him coming here to play RB.
WIllian is a winger...always has been... since his time in corinthians
+3
^ Did he play on the left or right wing? because at Chelsea, he seems to have problems at RW. He plays better centrally.

Alfrodo, i never understood that rumour because Barca play 4 at the back. He's the type that plays RWB in 3 defence formation, not 4 imo.
+1
Considering the way Alba and Alves play sometimes, Cuadrado isn't all that far off Theo :P
+2
@theo

he has always played on the left...

its interesting actually cause once Willian became the main attraction in Shakhtar he was given the liberty of leaving his position more than often which gave him more goals and assists... he's always been good cutting into his right...however, willian was never really the player with the most freedom in Shakhtar... it was mkhitaryan... despite being a CAM their coach noticed Miki had a lot of goals in him... more than anyone else in the squad... so miki was pretty much like messi.. he played wherever he wanted but many times he was also a false 9... and as a result, he was their top goal scorer for 2 seasons in a row i believe, with willian coming second in stats.

eventually they managed to fit Luiz Adriano, Miki, Willian, Dougals Costa and Alex Texeira in the same squad in attack with Fernandinho right behind them.... they had an amazing squad... it was with this team they knocked chelsea out on group stages and nearly topped Juve for the group.

I do miss seeing Willian play on the left side... he is easily one of Europe's best wingers... but for him to play in his position he will have to somehow bench Hazard... and that not gonna happen... bad for him in both Chelsea and Brazil cause Neymar isn't gonna be pulled outta the left neither.... so basically he plays for 2 different squads and both have two of the best growing talents in the world playing directly in his position
+1
@DaGaza

where exactly does he fall in this category of 'easily one of Europe's best wingers'? Because I can think of 10 players better than him
+1
Yeah, Willian is not 'one of the best wingers in Europe' IMHO either. Unless you're talking about the 30 best wingers or something. I'd be able to name several players who are probably at his level or higher who are unknown names to most people here. Several of those play in the BuLi.
willian is definitively one of the best wingers in Europe....if you guys had seen that man play before he went to chelsea you would know....

Remember how Hulk was one of the best Wingers in Europe for 2 years while he was under AVB in porto? everyone was ready to sign him an then he made the mistake of going to Russia for money where now he isn't even close to being the player he used to be and could have been (cause he could have still improved).... the same thing happened to Willian... everyone in Europe was interested in him .. he could have made a serious impact in Europe and then he decided to go to Russia for the money and it all went to s**t... meanwhile fernandinho made the right decision and went to the premiere league where he had an amazing first season.. now.. he is being benched.. i dont know why cause fernando isn't nearly as good as him.

i know most people haven't but you guys will be amazed how extremely talented willian is... he certainly is a better winger than cuadrado, i can confidently say that much
+1
Let's start with the easy ones:

Robben, Ribery, Muller, Reus, Draxler, Bale, Ronaldo, Neymar, Hazard, Sanchez, Sterling, Di maria at RW >, and even Griezeman atm >
+2
I think willian is up there but still not to 10. Before he went to Chelsea he played in Russia and Brazil. Not really top notch competition there.

St1or: You forgot bale and cr7 there.
Oh never mind. For some reason I didn't read bale and ronaldo. Dyslexia kicking in I suppose.
Kevin de motherfucking Bruyne!!

Ask Pep after tonight :D
@st1or

i said one of the best.. i never put him in the top 10

there is suppose to have like 500 wingers in Europe... if someone was to be in the top 20 or so can't they be labeled as one of the best?

Willian is better than Draxler, Sterling or Griezeman.... if anyone bothered watching him play before he went to a famous club then they would know how talented he is playing in his position.... you cant judge a player u never saw playing at his best.

@Jereon...thats my point exactly...De Bruyne is a chelsea reject... anyone a year ago who said he was one of the best young talents out there would have been called silly... now he has 5 goals and 11 assists in 18 bundesliga matches and now he is one of the best young talents again.. but you being from Belgium watched him play before he was put on the bench and forced to plat outta position in a famous team.. so you always knew how talented he was, though others who only began watching couple matches with him thought otherwise.

anyways.. till willian moves on from chelsea and goes somewhere he can play in his position, at his best, with freedom i cant really prove my point.. so ill just have to wait.
Actually I know Willian was pretty great for Shakhtar, but I didn't see as much potential in him as I saw in KdB or the Hazard bros, for example.

Willian is not a fast thinker, de Bruyne is. in fact, he's the smartest of all famous Belgian players, and that's saying something. Willian misplaces easy passes far too often as well and rarely creates good chances. At this higher level (than the Ukrainian competition), he's out of his depth too often. KdB though, he is at his very best in the big games. For Belgium he's usually the MOTM. At Genk, Werder and now at Wolfsburg he's showing the same quality: to raise his consistently good performances to great ones against the best clubs. The fast he was always great except for at Chelsea (since he barely played at all), also means that calling him one of football's biggest talents would NOT have been frowned upon even in those bad Chelsea days. Even the Chelsea fans themselves loved him and knew his potential. You don't just single-handedly prevent a Bundesliga team like Werder from getting demoted; which is exactly what he did before going to Chelsea again.

I hoped (but never really believed in it) Barça would get him as an understudy of Iniesta. We could certainly use another quick thinker and technical player like him who's more direct than the typical La Masia graduates. He's the sort of player that fits into any team, really.
Neymar is making everything right now. I love this kid. My only concern is Suarez... I wish he got on the scoresheet too. I hope he will score in future and not have the same fate like Alexis Sanchez.
+1
Apart from goals , i think Suarez have already established himself as vital part of the squad , unfortunate :'( Sanchez took almost a season and half to achieve that status .
“He’s got an odd way of playing, particularly when he’s winning,” the former Spain Under-21 man told the media.

“He’s always making gestures on the field, especially when he’s in front. Nobody likes to lose and these things irritate you.”

Gabi about neymar

though i dont like neymar mannerism on field,i would say after all these years,atleti players trying to get into opposition's skin and done it effectively ,but finally someone else got into atleti players skin,lol.

See,tasting your own medicine isnt that tasty,if anyone have doubt,ask Gabi :)
+1
its such a shame w/e happened, it was shaping up to be a fantastic game, although i'll admit i was really impressed with Barca's counters and surprised with how open Atleti were

also, i don't know about you guys but i loved Arda's boot throw (lmao he needs better aim), how he got away with that i don't know but you guys think he'll be investigated by the Spanish FA? great game though. Neymar>Bale for me (although i feel Ronaldo holds back Bale)
+1
Cani : “With the way Neymar is playing - doing nutmegs, talking - he will have a problem one day."

It's ironic because Atletico's best quality is to get under the opposition's skin.
+1
^ lol,those butthurts didn't realise their one day was yesterday.
