They're discussing clattenberg's handling of the Chelsea game today and they're saying refs have to "manage" the game and avoid sending people off.

This is the kind of thinking which ruins the game. If you make a red card worthy tackle then the ref has no right to alter rules of the game. Refs artificially stamp their authority on the game and cunning players and managers take advantage of this. Then forwards start diving trying to get even. Its an endless cycle when one injustice leads to cheating. Use replays, use challenges. I don't like the game to be stopped endlessly but ref mistakes cost teams titles and millions of dollars. Why?

Had ref follows rules in book and given reds to those worthy fouls from rm thugs against us,then there wouldn't have been any talk of us diving and cheating.

Barca is like...oh so that's how you win a title with two weeks to go. Too bad we have to do it on the last day every year.

Congrats Leicester, what an amazing story. Next year, everyone will be ready for you guys, so you need to buckle up ;-)
Xavi: "Real Madrid C.F. played like a small team against FC Barcelona in the Clasico at Camp Nou ... I don't like to see teams who shut up shop at the back."

"Big teams like Barcelona and Madrid should always stick to their own style. Barcelona fans would not understand it if they were to change their style of play. Barcelona's style is non-negotiable."



what are your thoughts on this?

P.S: only asking Barca fans, Madrid supporters say away please.

I want to know what question was asked before he said this. He is wrong because I don't think there's any team in the world that can play their "style" against this barca team. You have to adapt to them because if you don't they're going to tear you apart. Madrid can play open attacking football against other teams but they can't get into a shoot out vs this barca team. Its just suicide.

There's no right or wrong way of playing. You play to win. Xavi's attitude cost us the title in tata's year. We were playing more direct vertical football in the first half after tito's year and xavi was the one who complained about the lack of possession football. The result was tata went back to the pep/tito style and we ended up having trouble with parked buses again.

They simply capitalized on this teams weaknesses and their strength, which is the counter attack. It might not be the best of tactics, but it worked.
Xavi is football purist,can't see such people taking success more than philosophy,so it's his opinion that he can keep it with.
But am beg to differ with him,it's good to have success with style,but it's not fun having a style without success,ask arsenal fans.you can have any of tactics as long as it works,in medieval times,strongest walls were helping to defend their kingdom against most offensive armies.
That said,we are all expecting historically most dominant teams like barca,real and Bayern playing attacking football all the time,so it's quite disappointing the way real playing atm.
Must...stay...away.....must...stay...away...

^Haha, I meant I need Barca fans reviews here.. Do they agree or not..

We have a saying that goes like: "The team that plays beautiful football never wins", just look at Arsenal.
This Barca team is the probably the first team to combine exquisite style of foot with winning. Football unfortunately is mostly about winning, regardless of style , it is sad but true, just look how furious all of us became because we got knocked out of CL, regardless of our style of play.
It is a sad fact, but it very very hard to combine exquisite football and winning , most team will sacrifice one for the other, and winning is what most team will choose if they have a choice.

Actually the REAL Story is this, XAVI was talking about Atletico not Real Madrid

Man, I just finished watching some skills and goals of Riyad Mahrez. His pace and dribbling is so good. Too bad he doesn't suit our style of play otherwise we could've put a bid on him and drop Messi in Midfield.
he's not as fast as you think. he is quick and his touch/dribbling give him that perception of being that much faster but in a race or something he'd get smoked by the likes of neymar and bale. etc. it's interesting, i wonder if he will stay at leicester, i would like to see what they can do in CL if they hold on to their stars. would be sad to see the team dissolve.
I doubt their stars will say no if top teams in Europe come knocking... However, it would be nice if they all stay and make the title race more entertaining next season.
They have to add to their squad to account for all the extra games and travelling anyways. That might be key to any success next season.
+1
Not only that, but other teams will start preparing differently for Leicester and will be more cautious , so they will need more options, as more and more teams will park the bus against them :-)
The game yesterday was one of those games where both teams didn't look like they were interested. Barca didn't have a shot on the goal until the 25th min and Betis looked content to just sit back and do nothing. Betis wasn't playing for anything in the league so I guess it's understandable. But I did think their tackling was getting crazier by the min until the sending off. I'm shocked how Dani Ceballos survived with one yellow. He stamped on pique's foot twice.

Messi's quality really shows when he does subtle things like the two assists. It just comes out of nowhere. Neymar was wasteful as usual although he did take on his defenders more than the last few games. Suarez wasted a couple of easy chances as usual. I'm glad we are playing espanyol thugs at home. They're going to be brutal considering they're still not out of the drop zone although Granada which is below them have to play us.

Which brings me to the next semi threat - Granada. They will be fighting to avoid relegation when they face us on final match day.

Atletico have to play celta at home which is the only tough fixture left. Madrid have to play depo who's also fighting to stay up. We need to play these games like its a Ucl final.

Folks. Our apologies for the site being down. Our team has been working around the clocks and happy to say the issue has been resolved.

Thanks.

How Spanish refs keep falling for the same dramatics again and again is beyond me. Alves went past that guy clearly and he went down holding his face.
