Is this news true (Bale has a muscular lesion) or just silly Madrid mind games before el clasico?

http://www.realmadrid.com/noticias/2014/10/parte-medico-de-bale?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=bale_partemedico&utm_term=bale_partemedico&utm_campaign=twitterRRSS

If I had a euro for every time Ronaldo was "injured" before a clasico and then still started the match...
Some news are saying that he will not feature vs Liverpool so he can play in Clasico , as for that ' injured ' before game trick , i think its gonna with the special one
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeNXRfJOhYM

Hilarious if true!
I knew Dortmund wasn't doing well but 1/15 points in the last five games?! that's a really spectacular decline..
Its sad.
i guess thats what happens when your rivals pick apart the heart of the team.
Its kinda amusing they have almost as many points in the CL as they do in Bundesliga
is it just me or is the home page of footytube full of american football videos??
Now I dont have to go to another website to know that the Redskins suck -_-, they keep trying to make us expect something big but the same thing that happened last season happens again.

EDIT: Holy s**t, I just realised the Redskins is our Arsenal.
1. In the capital
2. Used to be realy good but havent won much in years
3. Injury plagued
4. Large expectations before every year
+1
for me its showing Chinese super league videos and trolls related to Manchester United..

oh wait,
those were match highlights. oops.
+1
and the cowboys are liverpool, used to be one of the best, has one of the biggest following, but play s**t to average.

still i dont follow american football and i wonder why a footytube has links of vids for it. it may have something to do with location (proxy) but I'm not sure
Probably cuz it finds videos related to the word football
+1
^ Bing! We have a winner. We use a crawler that automatically uploads videos from trusted sites and when those sites change the type of vids they display, it can catch us off guard. I've already alerted the development team about it so given the rate they fix things, it should only take a week lol
LOOOOOOOL Real Sociedad conceded two 90 Min+ goals against getafe to loss the match .

They have been upright s**t this season , apart from that epic come back vs Madrid , which was their last win too , thet haven't won in any of 5 matches they played since , they're 16th in league table , more shockingly level on points with Bilbao ( they have been much worse then sociedad though )

This season is our chance to conquer San Sebastián - woot woot !!!!!
Score those goals a man named Yoda did. Good goals, they were.
+2
Its because i cursed them after they beat us.

Not really but mentally i was like phooey on you guise
LOL Tanmay
Footytube has this video up here which reminded me of our Dutch team 15 years ago:

http://www.footytube.com/video/frank-de-boer-goals-with-fc-barcelona-308162?ref=tchan_ov_vidgrid

F De Boer - What a player. It was such a shame that Barcelona should have won much more with that team but achieved much less.
+2
Isn't it funny that same fan that labelled Tiki taka or total football as boring and dead are now relishing this goal .

https://vine.co/v/ObnIBli5E7F

Oh I see.. Mou taking tips from Pep the great.!
+1
Mou doesn't design such plays. He has Oscar, cesc, hazard who are capable of doing it themselves. The only thing he is good at designing is counterattacks.
+2
moves like that are "beautiful" and every fan can appreciate that. it's the sideways passing as defending that makes people fall asleep. direct play doesn't just mean crosses and long balls. attacking the goal is what people want to watch, that's the bottom line. sometimes the patient buildup is boring but teams that can constantly probe defenses are always going to be more watchable than teams that pass for the sake of passing.
SIF: teams that constantly probe defenses...

In case you didn't realize it, barca does that non stop. There are two aspects to the way barca played under pep:

1) Under no circumstance should the opponent have the ball. Its impossible to do that but the high press and constant charging was designed to get the ball back. This was PEPs defensive side. He explained his idea in a simple way: When the opponent has the ball the field should become smaller while when you own the ball the field gets bigger.

2) Constantly trying to find an opening to score. This requires nonstop movement of the ball where they move up on the wing and try to find a way in and if the opponent close it down, turn the ball around and move to the center or the opposite side. The idea is to overload on one side and then swiftly move to the other side which Messi does with quick passes with iniesta or xavi or just dribbles past waves of defenders sideways.

Patient build up is boring for the opponent. People in bpl are used to ping pong style football where the ball is tossed in to the box regardless of whether there's anybody to receive the ball or not. That's direct play in English football. Then the ball bounces around haphazardly until... GOALLLLL!!

Barca's ball movement started suffering since 2012 primarily because xavi slowed down. Plus the opponents started parking the bus every game.
@SoccerisFootbal,

You really think our team prefers slow buildup and sideways passing if we have the choice between that and a direct attack on goal? The only time we ever resort to slow buildup and sideways passing is when the opposition parks 10 players in the penalty area with no desire to move.
i think pep himself said that his barca team did not play tiki taka. pep hates the word too.

pep played the dutch game of pass and move with his own idea added.
lol thats like 4 quick passes....
+1
^exactly de gaza,that reminds barca style.
@Dagaza , what you suppose tiki taka or total football is ? I know this might sound difficult to understand but this same moment will fail against 10 men defense and will be labelled as boring too .
id say this is a Tiki Taka goal

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsKmF7K_vak


I understand chelsea's was a good passing goal but i wouldnt label that as tiki taka
+1
There are alot,of misconceptions about what pep his philosophy and barcelona.

At the peak in 2010 and 2011 it was unreal to watch how quickly barca broke down defenses.

Back and lateral passes are only necessary because of defensive pressure and to preserve possession for the ultimate purpose of then finding a triangle on the other side

Usually barcas goals came from switching play to one side, combining in triangles and then a lobbed or wall pass in behind the defense to a runner on the opposite side. Thats pretty much the whole idea of football.

I prefer pace and power and while madrid is not without beautiful spanish football, barca was all about the simple things
+1
Dagaza: I agree. But most people get "bored" because Barca made 24 passes with about 30% of them backwards before the goal.

Also note how Messi ends up in the pocket between DM and CB lines and immediately finds space. That's what Madrid or any team has to avoid. In the Clasico if Modric/Kroos run up to get the ball leaving Messi to sneak up behind them, he will open up the defense either with a strike or a piercing pass.
Tiki Taka

Guys, I cant stop laughing, haha.. What they create out of nothing!! XD just enjoy.
http://www.marca.com/en/2014/10/19/en/football/barcelona/1413745030.html

Marca started this bullshit , but what do you expect from a newspaper that put this sort of headline for a player that was probably most influential in the La decima .

http://www.marca.com/en/2014/10/19/en/football/real_madrid/1413703300.html

' Angel who? James shines again '

Are you freaking kidding me ?

I wont be surprised if marca post this after messi scores at bernabeu

I swear, I dont know what the F they are upto.. I mean people read this?
The news isn't even logical, just wtf.
Lol it's a funny video. What do you guys think was really going on?
+1
According to Media, it was something like:

Enrique: Leo Leo
Leo: Shut you son of bitch
Enrique: you sub out?
Leo: no, son of bitch
Enrique: I'm the coach
Leo: I'm the boss you son of bitch, my barca
Enrique: who to sub then?
Leo: neymar, son of bitch
+4
@tanmay,the way lucho replied about this situation,it could be like this.he asked messi whether he wants to sub or not as he reveals usualldiscussing with players about subbing.and messi said he is fine..
+2
@Umair haha seriously. In reality it looked like a conversation between a mom and a child, which is why I thought it was hilarious.

"Did you drink your milk?"
"Yeah one sec I'll drink it right away"
"You're not going to drink it are you?"
"My friends are here and I gotta go bye!"
+2
"I felt I had ruined my career," Suarez told TV3.

"At first, I did not want anyone to know anything. I locked myself away with my family, but then I reflected on what I had done, I apologised and felt liberated.

"By then discussions with Barca had begun, and when Pere [Guardiola, his agent] called me to tell me it was done, I began to cry, because of the situation I was living and the support that the club was offering me.

"I felt happy about the commitment the club had shown me.

He is such a fan boy of this club,I remembered him saying he used to come here to watch barca game.neither he is a high maintenance guy nor horrible person as majority thinks,I hope he will keep his cool throughout his career here.He destined to be a future club legend..

The last time Lucho faced Real Madrid he won 2-0 with Celta de Vigo
+3
he is also hated by madrid fans
He loves hate.
