CDR Final will be played at Camp Nou May 30th. It's official!

Best ever start after 50(49) games Barca coach for Enrique:
49 played
41 wins
3 draws
5 losses
141 goals (2nd highest ever)
31 goals conceded (lowest ever)
what does this mean??
That means, in his first 50 games, he's gotten the most amount of wins (surpassing Guardiola and Herrera).

He's gotten 41 wins with only 49 games played. Meanwhile, he's improved our defense and offence. We have the best defensive record under him and the 2nd best offensive record under him in his first 50(49) games.
+1
Then why is it that some of us still doubt him? I know he's made a couple of mistakes but which manager hasn't?
@SA

Because he's made rookie mistakes in the league. We should have never dropped points against Celta, Sevilla, Malaga and Sociedad.

However, if we do win a trophy, he will remain in the club. If we don't, he'll be sacked. Guarantee it! Especially the way la liga is going this year.
+5
I think Lucho is great for us, because he is bringing the best out of the players... something that Tata and arguably Tito failed to do. All said and done, this was pep's biggest strength -- making the most talented team in the world play to their fullest potential for 3 years straight.

Having said that, I'm not a big fan of Lucho tactically. But as long as he keeps our team performing at their peak, I think the odd tactical mistake won't make a big difference.
Messi has created 31 goal scoring chances this term ucl and leads,second place shared with koke n teveZ by creating 23 chances.Surprisingly ronaldo didn't feature in 23 best chance creators and benzema leading at rm by creating 20 chances.

The funny part is,player like willian created more chances than ronaldo.So according to certain logic of some people,willian better than ronaldo;-)

Edit,just found ronaldo in 57th position I that list,that's too low man..
This is the exact reasoning of why Pele said if he had to pick he would pick Messi. Messi is a goalscorer and assist machine. Ronaldo is a goalscoring machine, but very few assist created.
To Ronaldo's defense, he does have 19 assists racked up this season. However, I do agree that Messi is much more of a provider than Ronaldo is. Ronaldo has been transformed into a goal scoring Machine, while Messi does both.
He too has lot of assists,the difference is messi is all rounder n ronaldo is striker.But my intentions was to poke fun of some rival fans..
maybe we should look at last years CL? ;)
Cr7's assists and extraordinarily high goals is because of the number of attacking options at madrid. Carlo removed the one dm (though not by choice) that they had resulting in much better offense than what they had before and also a much more exposed defense. Cr7's move to fwd instead of lw has also brought him more opportunities to score and assist. Its good for madrid and seems to be generally working (when they play 442) but I think even though it seems like cr7 is playing at phenomenal levels that is more a result of tactical change than cr7's change in attitude. Messi will always provide a threat at different levels (scoring and assisting) than cr7.
+1
Depends on how you look at it. In La Liga:

Messi has 2.5 chances created per match,
Cristiano has 2.3,they are 3th and 4th.

I don't really trust in chances created stat,it's really not that accurate. It's basically a key pass that didn't end up as an assist because the chance wasn't finished. Players like Modric for example,usually create a chance,that ends up being a goal after 2 or 3 passes. No stat for that thou.
+1
Even in la liga if you look at Ronaldo's assists, most of them are square passes or unintentional passes. I don't understand why Madrid fans are getting so excited about it lol
Still counts

Donno why you guys give two craps about devaluing ronaldo.

Messi and his reputation don't need protection.

Let the boys play and sit back and have a corona
+1
Want to know the difference? watch RM play CR7 is usually found in the box majority of the time (meaning waiting to score) Messi on the other hand is usually found in the middle or on the wing lines of the pitch (meaning looking to create and engage as much as possible) two different agendas. This is not to devalue anyone but to create an awareness for those that haven't noticed. One knows he will get one in the net before the day ends if he keeps creating for others and the other says I must get one in the net before the day ends by all means in other words "WHY didn't you pass it to ME?"
Only 7 clubs have ever won the treble:

http://i.imgur.com/DIC5Jy3.png

If there was some sort of a tournament between these 7 at their best, who would win?
+1
At the moment, Barcelona would be the favorites. The other big 3 are finding their forms.
Obviously we're biased, but I would say that the 2009 Barca team is the best team that has ever existed.
+2
What's crazy is that there are 4 other possible treble winners this year: PSG, Barca, Juve and Bayern. all 4 clubs are in the finals of their cup game, in the run to win the league and have a shot at CL still.

If either Barca or Bayern do it, they will become the first club to win 2 trebles.

What's even crazier is that Madrid have never won the treble, despite winning CL 10 times.
+1
This is a fun discussion topic, St1or. I'd be surprised though if anyone picked a team besides our beloved Barca.
Could you imagine if we became the first club to win the treble twice?!

And even though Madrid and Bayern are still favourites to go through, this is a fantastic scenario for us if they both get eliminated on Wednesday.
We might dont need to buy a new Right back

Just hope he don't get treated like Montoya .

How good is he?

Lol so now after ruling the football world , messi is looking to rule the tattoo world .

He tattooed his tattoo artist Roberto Lopez.

Best tattoo ever.
I just realized this, Real, and Bayern both have a good possibility of being eliminated from the UCL this week. I really cant imagine that happening, but with both losing players to injury, they arent at their best. Bayern shooting themselves in the foot vs Porto, still missing Benatia, and their best player Robben, Porto isnt afraid of Bayern. I don't know if they can turn it around. As for Real of course, just last week after the 1st leg, i thought Real would be favorites even without Marcelo. Now without Bale, and their magician Modric, I give a slight edge to Atletico. Simeone is licking his lips to a wounded Real, hoping his team can end this revenge mission theyve been on since the Lisbon final.

If these 2 are eliminated by the end of Wednesday, I will be thoroughly shocked, even if they're both banged up.
Both Bayern and Madrid will win this week.
+2
I don't really give a s**t about Bayern but I hope Atletico beat Real.
+9
I'd much rather play Bayern than Atletico or Real. Revenge would be sweet
Don't care if either team gets eliminated though I think both teams will go through. For all the talk about loss of key players bayern lost because of individual mistakes. That has nothing to do with bench players. So even though it seems like they're in trouble the result was much worse than the actual team situation.

Madrid has enough players go make it count. Yes they won't play their best 11 but they still have options. Maybe cr7 will finally turn into the rare "beast" that they speak of in a crunch game against a top side.

If both lose I'll be more than happy but like Alf said it will be nice to settle some scores with bayern.
+1
I think Bayern & Real will find ways to bounce back, they are deep teams and will find a way out. While a Real loss is welcome anyday, IMHO we rather play Real side than a thuggish Atleti. After Ancelotti took over, Real is playing clean and I prefer that over hack-and-whack football from Simoeone and gang.
I'd watch out for Juve if Madrid and Bayern get knocked out. They are the 'Dortmund' of this season.
@Jeroen (or anybody else)

I wanted to get your thoughts on where you think Klopp may end up going? Would it be crazy to think that he'd be interested in Liverpool if Rodgers gets the sack? i'v always seen him as a guy that thrives on clubs with brilliant atmospheres and motivates his team around that.

With only OT and Anflield rivaling the Westfalenstadion and with LVG staying obviously, is Liverpool the ideal club?

And i just can't see him fitting in at City (if Pellegrini goes). Other than that, there really aren't many other spots open, might be another Allegri situation.

Thoughts?
what do you mean by rivaling old trafford and anfield? anfield is half the size of westfalenstadion
+2
Just in terms of pure atmosphere, its one of the best in the premier league, thats pretty much it, not comparing the two.
'Crazy' is a term that's definitely not applicable to Klopp moving to Liverpool. I even think it's quite likely he'll go there. Like you said, he's the sort of man who loves clubs with a good fanbase that supports the team through thick and thin rather than a fanbase of gloryhunters. His coached teams were Mainz and Dortmund, both have a tradition of loyalty and good sportsmanship. Liverpool is the same.

It's not impossible he'll go to City either. Money talks! I do think Klopp is the sort of man who attaches much less importance to money than other managers, given that the difference between his wages at Liverpool (I estimate he'd earn around €60k a week there) and City (€100k/week) are the difference between 'a lot' and 'even more'. Personally I don't think there's a big difference in earning €60k or €100k qualitatively. People with those wages can pretty much lead the same lifestyles. Klopp probably thinks the same and will therefore choose with his heart more. And knowing him, he'll prefer a traditional club with a lot of great fans like Liverpool.

It's also a possibility he won't go to England at all. He's always said that Barcelona is the greatest team in the world and he hinted strongly at dreaming of coaching there. I think our current coach Luis Enrique is doing a great job though, so I doubt Klopp will get the chance of coaching Barça any time soon.

If I'd have to bet on what his destination will be, I'd say it's most likely he'll go to either Liverpool or (equally likely if Ancelotti doesn't do well for the remainder of the season) Real Madrid, followed by City.
+1
Yh, Barcelona definitely came to mind at first but then i thought why would you get rid of Enrique for Klopp if you go on to win the league? From the outside perspective Enrique looks to be doing wonderful job, but is the prospect of Klopp more mouthwatering? (i'd be interested in Barca fans responses to that).

I can't see him fit in with City and Madrid, especially with you confirming that he is in search for a more traditional club. Not dissing on Madrid and City, but City are fairly new in their rise and Madrid, lets face it, can have very short memories and have high expectations. City is more likely but again, will he look at their aging squad and feel like its too much work? Plus, City has always been a big fan of Pep more so then Klopp (could Pep leave?). Liverpool seems the ideal choice, but he may not get CL football in his first season.

I think he made a mistake turning down the United job last season, i think that would have been perfect for him and saved him from this poor season with BVB. I just think he can't motivate the players any longer and most of them might be out the door as well (will Reus follow Klopp?)

Its so tough to call, if Ancelotti leaves Madrid (which i think he will bar if they win the UCL), who but Klopp is there to replace him? I personally, can't wait to see how this unfolds.

Cheers for the reply, i came to the right person, from a Chelsea perspective i do hope he stays away from Liverpool but that is probably his best option right now.
I see him going to PSG before Liverpool. Wouldn't mind seeing him at Barca even if Luis Enrique pulled off a couple of cups tbh
If a new board gets elected, then Enrique might get sacked just because the board wants to appoint their own man. Bringing in Klopp as the first thing you do is the kind of marquee signing a new board would love.
Is munir el haddadi injured??
Don't remember reading that , he is with B team that's why don't play for first team now
+1
No. He is with the B team
There's talks of a possible Isco switch from RM to Barca. I know I don't like to take on RM players, but Isco is a Malaga player, that was bought and wasted by RM, so I wouldn't mind having him join the team. I don't know how ceredible this may be, but I personally would love to see Isco, and Muniain join the team.
+1
Isco is well received and used in our team. Not wasted at all really. Don't know why we would unload him, especially to our rivals
+4
You might sell him for someone like pogba or hazard next season though..
Hazard isn't coming just yet. And why would we sell him then? We lot players rot on the bench before selling them unless the price is astronomical
+1
Isco is a Cule at heart, so it's always possible :)
+5
Isco grew up a Barca fan, his dream maybe playing in the blaugrana hasnt died yet
+3
To be fair Danny,rm transfer policy doesn't make much sense,you sold ozil when he was second best player,then you sold di Maria when he was your best player .so anything is possible:-)
I doubt Unlce Perez will be fool enough to sell Isco to Barcelona and damage his reputation among real faithful's . In season or two I see him leaving but to barca ? Almost impossible .
Isco has been a key player for us this season and he's one of the most adored players by the Madridistas. He's not going anywhere and especially not to our biggest rivals.
+1
I'll have what you guys are smoking. I admit I want us to buy messi but that'll never happen.

Also do Maria was never our best player. The team were all in top form minus ronaldo during the final stages of champions league. Bale, modric, Alonso were all crucial as well as Ramos. Not to mention Marcelo!
+3
I didn't say he was the only player who played well,I said he was your best player.The entire team played exceptionally well as you said,but if you ask who was your stand out player,then . can easily point out di Maria.he was on hard drugs on that time :-)

And I didn't expect you would sell isco to us directly,since figo,every player on both side or board scared to do such kind of move.what I meant there are no guarantees that isco gonna stay there next season because of your weird transfer policy..
I could easily argue that bale was our best player last season . It is your opinion that do Maria was. Not a bad pick but I don't believe in best player concept much except when it comes to messi
Danny414 , rather look for what uncle Perez smokes .

Lets not kid ourselves here , as soon as another star emerges Perez will throw in money to have him , even as rumored if pogba was to join Madrid for high transfer fee , I do see isco high on sellable players , certainly above kroos , modric and James .

With full squad available , isco is usual sacrificed , what guarantees that he will be happy with this ( at best ) bit part role in future ?

Other thing is he isn't coming to Barcelona , not direct from real at least .
+1
"We let players rot on the bench"

You're certainly right about one thing, Danny :P
Love the logic that just because a young player like Isco doesn't start every game he will leave. Then what about some of the Barca players?

Isco has 33 starts this season, Rakitic has 31. What's the big deal about not enough game time?
+4
I had said this about isco last year when they bought james - isco will be gone in a year. I like the way madrid fans are so sure about isco staying. In case you didn't know madrid makes unpredictable transfers especially under perez. If a good offer comes along perez will listen to it. He has never been shy of tearing up a team so why would isco be any different?
@Hikmat , do you know how many of this starts were enforced on Carlo because of Modric , James & Bale ( during first half of season ) injuries ?

You seriously think Carlo will start isco if he have full squad available , I don't see that happening unless you bench bale , which is almost impossible .
how Has isco been wasted by RM? lol
+2
Yeah, Isco is far from being 'wasted' at RM. But since his first Málaga games, I've said he was the new Iniesta (sort of) and always loved the idea of him playing for us. If Real decide to buy Hazard or deny Isco a lot of game time, I could see him going our direction.

But he'd cost an awful lot though, and he'd be almost a Figo n°2, for Real this time around.
Don't see a direct transfer happening between our two clubs any time soon. And Isco might have been a Barca fan, but obviously not big enough a fan to come to Real Madrid. It happens in football a lot, players are fans of certain clubs, but move to the rivals and become attached there.

@Malik He has played a lot of games, and our midfield will not always be fit. It's rare to have all four fit, so often Isco will play. Take into account if Ancelotti does leave, the next man in charge could rotate much more openly.
Hikmat: now you said something that makes sense. If Carlo leaves then isco might stay but it depends on the new manager.
Wow I didn't mean to start this big argument. For RM sake I hope Ancelotti leaves, he hasn't given much rotations. There's players like Isco, Ilarra, Jese, Chicharito, Khedira which are all great quality, and deserve play time but haven't received the amount they deserve. Unfortunate
