Do not read if you don't want to facepalm:

http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/540866/Thiabut-Courtois-Chelsea-Barcelona-Move

Courtois and Varane (for what would be around €20m in total) when we badly needed exactly those two types of players? No thanks.
Messi to Chelsea? Naw Jose won't sign him because he doesn't track back.
If he leaves it is either Chelsea or City. They are the only once who can afford his transfer fee and wages.
Ronaldo is an amazing player and probably playing his best games of his life at the moment. Messi is the best in the World and arguably playing his worse at the moment. But the records still look so close according to goals scored and Assists for club and country in 2014.
Ronaldo got 54 goals and 17 assists
Messi got 52 goals and 21 assists
(So close, so is Messi Slump = Ronaldo's best?) Ridiculous

Ofcourse I have to mention that Ronaldo's team got Champions League and CDR but failed in the WC. I dont wanna blame him for the teams failure in the WC cos he didnt have Real Madrid to help him there.
I think All 3 players Ronaldo, Messi and Neuer are equally worthy to win the Ballon D'OR. I wont complain if Neuer or Ronaldo wins it. But I do think Ronaldo got Lucky last year with Messi's injury.
With all due respect to him, I really don`t think Neuer is equally worthy of winning the Ballon d'or as Ronaldo or Messi, or even Robben.
+2
With all due respect to real and united fans, I really dont think Ronaldo should be mentioned in the same category or in the same sentence as Messi. It is really funny and stupid when ronaldo fans trying to compare Ronaldo to Messi, he is GOAT ffs. Im not trying to praise barca fans like u all do in madrid forum, its just my opinion about Messi and i wanted to share it.
What does being a United fan have to do with anything?! Please stop judging people like that, it gets really annoying. This is the second or third time I've seen you do it already.

I'm literally just replying to Shovwar's comment, he's the one who put Ronaldo and Messi up there.

I'm constantly calling Messi the best of all time, but that doesn't mean he should get all the awards just because he's Messi. Over the span of his career, he'll go down as the best ever, but like everyone else, he has ups and downs and there might be seasons where he wasn't the best in the world. Practically all Barcelona fans on this forum are mature enough to understand this, I don't see why it's so hard for you to do the same.
Saying Ronaldo, Robben or Ribery (last year) might deserve the Ballon d'Or just as much doesn't mean we're saying they're better than him. It just means they had a better season. It's simple really.

And I like how you got mad at my comment and went on about biased Real Madrid or United fans (trash club like you called it last time) putting Ronaldo in the same sentence as Messi, yet you don't seem to have a problem at me putting Robben amongst those three.
Something tells me that I'm not the biased one here.
Well it's no secret Utd fans still love Ronaldo Badge; just watch the idiots who want to fly banners over Old Trafford with 'Bring back Ronaldo' on. And those are actually Mancunian citizens; not just some random rich Asian fans or something.

But yeah, I also don't think Neuer has done enough to rival Leo or Ronaldo this year. Not that he wouldn't be able to; but being Bayern's goalkeeper means you can't prove your outstanding self most games. At Schalke he was incredible because Schalke's 10 field players were incapable of dominating the way Bayern does. Now Neuer often has games where he's so bored he backheels the ball to pass it to a teammate or just stands there in the middle circle on the pitch yawning.
Not Barca related but did anyone see Nani's extremely selfish goal for Sporting yesterday? He just refused to pass to 2 open teammates for about 10 seconds.. when he finally scored the two guys waiting for his pass were visibly annoyed instead of celebrating.

What a prick he is lol.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xIMBHLVG3IA
Lol I saw that, it was pretty funny!
Lmao it's like that one teammate we all have in indoor football who tries to do it all by himself. For every goal he scores like that, he misses 9.
Same applies for Nani funnily enough lol
+3
He be like: I came from a bigger club, I'll do whatever I want in Sporting.. He's the Ronaldo of Sporting now! lol
+4
he makes in a couple months what most of his teammates make in a year so he does what he wants :P
He must feel like Rooney in that dressing room
"I'm around, quit playing, *****, you can't shine"

Well now I know Nani writes 50 cents' lyrics lolol
50 cent*
"It is never nice to lose a record, but the fact that I'm now sharing it with someone of Xavi's calibre makes it a bit less bad," Giggs told Mundo Deportivo.

"Xavi is a bit like a chess player. He is always two or three steps ahead of everybody else. For me, he is one of the greatest players ever who played for one of the best teams ever.

"What surprised me most about him whenever I played against him was the way he protects the ball. He always keeps it far away from his opponents. He always seemed to make the perfect decision.

"He is a very intelligent player and always remains humble. He reminds me a bit of Paul Scholes."

We all know what xavi is all about,but it makes me more proud of being xavi fan when someone as great as giggs nodding his greatness..
+7
I watched an interview with xavi once and he spoke highly of Paul Scholes. In fact he said that scholes could have come to barcelona and become one of them without any effort.

And check this out too!

Frank Lampard's best 11 (active) players. His choices flatter us!

^ seems like players know the quality of trinity,unlike fans who think they wouldn't successful in foreign field.

I consider scholes rather a wasted talent considering the quality of him.such an amazing player..
wasted talent..? can u explain on what basis u think that..? i am just curious..
+2
Zlatan did the same

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OArACq2vEwY&feature=youtu.be

^ no harm here,just thinks he didn't fully justify to his talent,especially at international arena..
may be u are right in the international aspect...but i dont agree that he didn justify his talent at club level...
he played for United for 15 years winning 22 trophies.
he played his best football at United...i am not sure how else can he justify his talent..no harm here too..just want to know ur thoughts..:)
Carrasco (agent Montoya): "Luis Enrique said he's behind Alves and Douglas. And even Adriano seems ahead now. We want permanent transfer."

Carrasco (agent Montoya): "He knows the situation is difficult but he's fine. We're talking with the club about a transfer in January" [ec]

Not giving Montoya a chance now will be stupidest decision ever , since Suarez return from injury alves is been playing more defensive role with alba providing the attacking outlet , TBH even with more defensive approach from dani he seems troubled at time ( can't blame him it's not his natural style ) but on other hand alba is been quite good in more attacking freedom , pairing Montoya on right and alba on left in same role will provide more balance and assurance at back .

Also it seems dani wont be getting a renewal which will leave us with Douglas and Adriano , I don't see Douglas being a starter and most probably he will also leave soon
I don't understand how LE place Douglas ahead of Montoya. Plus Adriano is not a good rb he plays much better as lb.

A shame if he leaves but I cant blame Montoya
To be fair to Dani he has the highest tackles success rate this season out of all our defenders by a margin as a right back..

TBH Montoya started out as a great right back in his younger years and was very impressive. However after being given chances he failed to prove consistency or progress. He just wasn't impressive enough to win the position.. we should have bought Matteo di sciglio this summer
Yousif, how was Montoya given enough chances? When was the last time he was given a run of games even in copa del rey?
Oh it seems I missed a big chunk of Barcelona matches during last few season in which Montana was give number of chance in which he failed to prove anything , but stats shows a different story , perhaps these stats are wrong too , we need some yousifland stat's

14/15 Montoya played a whopping 1 match in which he got a rating which is better then all other players apart from messi Neymar and Suarez

13/14 Montoya started whopping 14 times this season with one appearance from bench .

so his poor ass couldn't prove his worth in this many numbers surely he must leave now .

Funny bit is that even he got this whopping starts in very scattered manner , I hardly remember a string of matches he played .

My point is that during 13/14 season Montoya didnt played amazingly during the chances he got but he was better then alves , he was lacking what was essential from our play ( which Alvie's is been providing ) but now alba is playing that advance role to balance it we need RB with defensive profile , a perfect match for Montoya .

And yousif get your FIFA fact updated because di siglio is been played a lot at LB recently and I don't see a need of LB
The most disturbing thing is that apparently Douglas is ahead of Montoya...how is that even possible?
Lol I was impressed with Montoya at first too trust me. But he's just not a permanent replacement for Alves. I don't know if you were a Barcelona or La liga fan for a while but Alves was the best player in his Sevilla team, and was the player who singlehandedly kept Cristiano Ronaldo in his pocket for about 3 years.. Alves is ranked as the best right back in La liga in the past 20 years.. For Montoya a player who is a decent defender, not creative in attack, and isn't even half the player Alves was at that age to premanatly replace an aging Alves is absurd.. Which is exactly why Alves starts. To add to that Alves has the best chemistry with Messi than any player on the team.

He brings much more to the team than Montoya has to offer and I'm actually glad he's thinking about leaving as it is better for his future. And to add to that Malik, Mattia is actually a right back. He has 56 caps for Milan and obviously Abate is a decent Right back, but they see Mattia's talent therefore they are using him as a versatile fullback.
The thing to note is that Alves is more or less GONE next season. We need to invest in a replacement that we can't buy in the summer, and all we have is Montoya and DOuglas. Someone needs to be getting more playing time at RB in order to replace Alves next season. Its not about getting a player as quality as Alves now, its getting a player that we can at least slot into the team easily since you know, WE CANT BUY ANYONE
Yousif why do you keep talking about Alves in his sevilla days and when he came to Barca? Yes he was the best RB and dominated the world but he's not the same player. He hasn't been the same player since Pep left which is about 3 seasons...get over the old Alves cause he's not even half the player he was.
+1
@yousif , oh sorry I forgot in your world we have fountain of youth which keeps people at same age , thus they keep on performing at same level , I wonder why our stupid board paid so much for Suarez they could have rang maradona , offer him a sip from fountain of youth , a contract and booooom we have a one of the best attacker in football history .
+1
I just don't get why you can't admit that our right side has been our weak side for a while now. Oh and if you don't believe me, just watch the Clasico where Marcelo tore him apart :)
Boooo CL

shaktar donetsk's Luis Adriano needs one goal to break CR7 goal record for the group stage in the Champions

pretty useless record though
La Liga scoresheet 10-0 this round, with spotless wins for all four teams.

*handshakes all around*.

But but , Spanish team only know how to attack their defending is joke ;)
+6
BUt but, ...s**t..
Since people are talking about Ballon D'or these days, I find it extremely amusing and obviously hypocritical that the very same people who thought it was a crime against humanity when Messi won the award ahead of Sneijder (because of FIFA/uefa/Adidas conspiracy) now think that even suggesting ribery's name with cr7 last year at the ballon awards was ridiculous. With ribery it was a team effort while with sneijder it was somehow his brilliance never mind the fact that there was this guy named milito who scored 32 goals and another guy named mourinho who masterminded the entire treble. Arjen robben was also apparently better than ribery in juup's team even though ribery scored and assisted more than him.

Cr7 deserved the award last year and should probably get it this year too. But it's ridiculous to see people pissing on one player just because they prefer another player. And if you want to piss on a player at least maintain your connection with reality.
