Our recent form has been a blessing to watch. I feel as if our attack has finally picked it up. Messi is back to his imperial best, Suarez has begun to score goals. Neymar is having an excellent season so far, and Pedro has picked up in form again.. This is the exact thing we needed going into the break. However one issue we still have to deal with is the strongest defensive line up. I'm confident with Alba and Mathieu on one side, but I'm still not so convinced with Pique and Dani on the right side.

Our current defensive issues include having fast, aggressive, and smart defenders. While Dani has aged, and Pique lacking all of those qualities, we need to figure out a solid solution. The best thing I could possibly think of is having a back line including three center backs and having Alba as the lone player in attack. If you think about this formation it makes good sense. Bartra is pretty much a young version of Puyol in many aspects. From the PSG game I see Bartra as a solid RB especially since he's good at pushing the ball up.

Having a good defense wins titles and hopes us better focus on other aspects of the game as it would ensure a strong base. Mascherano being at CB position is undoubtedly good, because what he lacks in height he clearly makes up for in every other department. Also when it comes to conrners, we have Bartra and Mahtieu who are great defenders in the air. With everything pretty much covered in the back we can further focus on midfield and attack.

Our midfield is actually a huge issue this season surprisingly. Xavi is great but this team has changed so much we need to replace him with someone younger asap. He should have been a backup player this season and not necessarily a starter. Iniesta has been very bad this season with the exception of a few games. On the other hand I've been a fan of Rakitic and Rafinha because they bring speed in attack to our midfield instead of waiting for the bus to be parked. The way our strikers play we need more pace to give them open space and more opportunities. Messi is clearly the only striker in the world that can get past being marked by 5 men every game and still score two goals a game.

To sum it up we need to make our defense so solid vs aerial threats and counter attacks. that the momentum should always be on our side. Our midfield need to pick up the pace of play to make use of all our talented strikers' abilities. I feel if we can strengthen these areas we could definitely compete for the CL and any title this season. So I really hope Lucho does some thinking and reviewing over the break.
Barca b lost 7-0 today!!!

I'm not one to bash Ronaldo or laugh at him too often, but boy, he deserves it here. He just unveiled his statue (which his own museum, erected by himself too, ordered to build) in Madeira. It's a huge bronze statue that doesn't really look like him (apart from the bronze tan) and has a huge bulge in its metal pants, LMAO! On top of that, he wanted the subscript of the plaque to be "Greatest player in the world"...

http://t.co/lBJtlIZY62

I understand he's got a bit of an inferiority complex, but sheesh, you're making it too easy for us Ronaldo.
(still a great player)
+8
Oh boy,here we go lol.
Please tell me you're making this up. I don't want to bother googling this right now. Did he pay for it himself?
+9
Am not even surprised,lol..
+6
The statue thing is true , though i didn't knew he did it all for himself

here is the pic of that statue ;)

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B5YisGXCUAMaEOs.jpg:large

BTW it looks awefull and of some different person

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2882620/Massive-Cristiano-Ronaldo-statue-erected-Real-Madrid-star-s-birthplace-Madeira.html
Aahhahahaha! I just can't get over that bulge! Can you guys imagine what Ronaldo said to the sculptor when he presented it to him? "I like it, but increase the bulge in my pants by about 250%."

Pejvl, you should change your profile pic to the bulge alone, that would be hilarious :D (btw, grats on becoming a mod, didn't even know until just now!)
+4
Hey don't be too hard-on the statue, Jeroen.
+2
:'D

I'm wondering if he actually realizes how ridiculous it looks. It's like the statue has a cancer growth in his pants. If I was a writer, I'd definitely entitle my article:
"Ronaldo unveils statue erection" :P

BTW MrWaddy: BOEREN KAMPIOEN :D
+7
I imagine it would be something like this:

"Reportedly Ronaldo was really excited about the erection of his statue. It's mainly a metal statue but apparently there's some wood in there too."

No doubt he faces stiff competition as "worst statue of the year" but it will be pretty damn hard to over come this one."

Maybe we should hold a pole?
+1
Yihaa and Vazquez (ex-Barça) for Golden boot :)
LOL! I have a few more:

"Cristiano Ronaldo was very excited to reveal his own statue. Not as excited as the statue itself, it appeared..."
"Ronaldo hoped for the statue to match his own character and he couldn't be happier with the outcome. The statue is bulging with a certain cockiness also reflected in Ronaldo's playing style."
"The statue may not seem very lively, but this may be because Ronaldo felt a bit stiff the day he posed."
"The statue is made of mainly granite, but it was coated with a few layers of tanning spray, leftovers from Ronaldo's personal summer collection."
"Although the plaque says "greatest player in the world", Ronaldo insists he did not mean greatest footballer in the world. He was referring to his ability to pick up women; the best footballer went without saying according to the man himself."
"The bulge in his pants is an indication to show the people in the world how happy he is to see them. It has nothing to do with a lack of confidence. Neither does the €750,000 Bugatti he drives. It's also a convenient perch for pigeons, to display Cristiano's love for all living things (those sitting on his penis anyway)."

And yes, VV is the man! Did I tell you that I told my mate (Siebe Hannosset, physical coach at Brugge) about Vázquez the month before they signed him? I can't help but think I'm partially responsible for Club signing him :D
+1
Wait, I don't get it.. Who is the guy in the statue, and why is Cristiano taking pics with him?
Hahahaha!

Pretty sure Ronaldo's reasoning for 'lifting it' (his statue) that way was this defining moment in his life:

http://i.imgur.com/c0j2M6E.gif

I actually just wanted to erect a pun thread but you raised the bar to a whole new level, keep it up.

I tried to think of some more but it was too hard, pretty sure I'll just be firing blanks if I continue at this point.
+2
@ yousuf , the statue is of a new superhero called bonerman and Ronaldo is his biggest fan .
+6
Oh and I think you can take full credit for that one Jeroen, I'm suprised you didn't get a commission on his transfer fee, say 50%?
Only if that bulge belongs to Raul,nobody else is worthy of being my on my profile picture lol. And thanks Jeroen :)

Also let's not take this to far,like it happened with Ronaldos dive recently. I think this statue was made by the city in his honer,but if he did mad it for himself,I'm pretty sure I know when the idea to include a massive manhood first pooped up in his mind:

http://www.gifbin.com/bin/052009/1242226186_ronaldo-stunned.gif
+1
@Pejvl
Did you intentionally misspell "honor" to look like "boner" or did the statue have a subliminal effect? lol.
+4
Aaaa yeah it was totally a joke...didn't misspell it,it's was a brilliant metaphor :P
Heh, I wish MrWaddy. I just get to watch Club Brugge games for free, thanks to my connection there :)
Hah nice, but jokes on you, I get to watch Club Brugge for free too thanks to my connection... to the internet. More lag than it's humanly possible to bear though :(
It's absolutely hilarious how much Ballon D'Or means to the Madrid fans. The same fans who were saying things like the award has lost all its credibility, the award is a joke, it's not even serious anymore blah blah blah. Now the same fans are fighting with anybody who says anything against Ronaldo winning it. I remember which fans they were too but I won't mention names :p. It's easy to be on the winning side but as soon as they are on the losing side the whole award doesn't mean anything hahaha. Hypocrites.
+6
I'm actually sick of the sneijDer story. I've yet to meet a person who believes messi didn't deserve that Ballon and can also tell me how many goals sneijder scored at the beginning of the 2010-2011 season after mou left inter.
+1
Anyone an aspiring cartoonists here? I picture Messi sitting behind his desk at home with a checklist of records to break, most of them checked, him marking the record 'most goals scored with right foot in one month' :)
Waw at the fact that this exists lolol

2nd coming of Haysus lol
Scores an amazing goal, just gives a thumbs up. Should've ripped his shirt and celebrated like there is no tomorrow.
What I like most about this goal is his that he shows great sportsmanship and humility by not celebrating like a donkey after 5-0. We all know who would be running around the pitch pointing to himself after scoring a tap in in a 5-0 win in the 90th minute. Absolute class.
+8
VIVA MESSI
The real question is,does he shoot an egg without breaking it? Lord bendter does it so often..
Please stop with the Bendtner jokes...they were funny like 2 years ago.
+2
Ok,let's start Alexis Sanchez jokes then,lol..

Take this“Anything can happen to us if we’re on a plane flying over a football stadium in England with Sanchez at the pitch because his shots might get hit the plane;-).”
Thank you, you beautiful man or woman, for posting this lol.
BTW questioners were handed out to the club member's attending the game vs Cordoba

Paper held poll at Camp Nou today. Questions about shirt sponsor, next season's shirt, smear campaign against Messi. Results on Monday. [md]

Below is the list of questions asked , what do you guys think ? what will be your answers to that ?

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B5UAWZqCMAA9JhU.png:large

Mine will be

1 - 6 for Enrique
2 - 6 for signings
3 - Qatar deal , i would say no , we shouldn't renew our deal with Qatar airways , prime reason is that there have been lots of allegation against Qatar government ( which have share in Qatar airways )
4 - Horizontal stripe , No WTF ? why would you wanna change club tradition ?
5 - President , as of now anyone else then our current board
6 - Club elections , should happen ASAP because current president was never elected by our members
7 - campaign against messi , is this a joke ? its been happening for good 2 years now .
+1
1 - 5
2 - 8
3 - no
4 - big no
5 - Laporta
6 - now
7 - yes
1. Enrique 5 - Doing worse than Tata at this stage and I preferred Tata's first half the season.
2. Signings 5 (Vermaelen? Douglas?) - Rakitic has been pretty good and Suarez is getting things in motion slowly but overall, we have spent a lot and don't have much to show for it.
3. Don't renew
4. Suicide lol
5. Our current board needs to go asap. We are possibly one of the worst run top clubs..
6. ASAP
7. #HatersGon'Hate
Ronaldo refused to hand shake with platini.This man take every tiny issues very personally,lol..
I am confused , shouldn't he be ditching blatter too ? didn't blatter called him a commander or something last year ? ah i see re voting have set things straight between them again . Good

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4POiN51xXHQ
^he forgave Blatter,since they reopened the voting to make sure he receive the D'or...lol
+6
@Blackstyle88

Yea.. that was absolutely ridiculous when it happened. Even then, penaldo only won by
Just saw the highlights... Ill admit.. If messi starts scoring with his right the same way he scores with his left then everyone's in trouble
+4
What frustrates me about the 5-0 score line is that Cordoba had 11 behind the ball even after 5-0..

We need to change something about our play style. It's honestly pissing me off because if we continue to play like this, we will end up with no trophies yet again.
+2
5-0 is the time to start putting 11 behind the ball

Confucius say "If you have to lose bad it is better to lose 5-0 than it is to lose 10-0"
+1
I think more worrying was that cordoba had 10 men behind ball even after going a goal down , they didn't even wanted to start a counter attack , every time they had the ball they would just shoot it back at our back line , i do understand that they don't have enough resources to take Barcelona head on but still its quite bad to already loss a match even before it starts .
