Its being reported that Real Madrid castilla players are angry about the wages that Martin Odegaard receives. This as always going to happen the guy is being paid more than all of them combined including the coach.

Speaking psychologically what can that do to a player who has been through all the teams juvenil coming through the ranks and all of the sudden comes this new younger/better player who earns more than you probably will. IMO I think that a player should be worth that much if he has done something with his career sure there are prospects and they should be more expensive than other players but not paid just as much if not more than already proven stars such as pogba, Marcelo. geez when you think about it the kid is being paid more than carvajal and Jese combined! the two of them being from the madrid youth msut strike a cord in their confidence at the very least. This also applies for my team as well as we are guilty of this.

What do you guys think of this?

Saw this a couple of days ago, its merely taking things out of context.

The person they are quoting is Sergio Aguza, Castilla captain. This is what he said originally:

"Martin salary? I think normally I would like to have what the rumors say he's getting (Laugh)"

Of course our friends at Marca came up with this "@MARCAinENGLISH: Aguza: "I'd like to be earning what they say Odegaard is getting"

Basically other papers and websites started catching on and it has spread. From a simple joke to him being unwanted, unwelcomed, and youth players jealous.

Makes me wonder why people take Marca seriously or even consider them a Madrid mouthpiece anymore, nothing but garbage and lies created for the purpose of clicks and internal conflicts. Thanks again Marca!

Most likely the media exaggeration but when you think about it and try to put yourself in that situation of the players in RMC who he joins how would you feel? would you really feel like that amount of money is warranted for a young prospect? no matter how good he is shouldn't that money go to a proven winner?
+1
kid got stirred up by media BS and now its a story. It wreaks of BS. Unconfirmed salary is speculation at best. I dont contest that he is probably getting paid much more but until its revealed this is media fishing at work

I honestly am tired of seeing the unconfirmed salary and fee being speculated on. I await the real numbers till then this is the last story i will be clickbaited into
+2
Yeah, those reported figures are extreme even for Real Madrid. I think I also read somewhere that those figures originated in England? Never mind the mere speculation from an entirely different country, but they record player salaries differently there (I think they estimate the figures before taxes?).

My problem isn't really with the extreme figures being thrown around though, but with how some media sources are writing off Odegaard's future just because of a reputation Real Madrid developed at the turn of the decade. Even more so than in previous years, Real Madrid have actually started to pay more attention to youth development. Some sources even suggest Cheryshev and Casemiro's return if they keep up their good performances.
+1
I read Aguza's comment as mocking the media for reporting the salary they did, therefore he is obviously not getting paid anywhere near the suggested salary.
+1
Just watched over the highlights of our last game and saw that CR7 was actually sent off for the perceived blow to the player's face and not the kick. So as quick as these officials are to punish shouldn't they also review the entire incident to examine if there was any provocation that lead to what happened. If there was any then any sanctions should be meeted out according and the player on the receiving end be also sanctioned as well. Fines would be a start as suspension would not be entirely warranted as all they did was to initiate the incident and that to me would discourage players from play acting to get a desired advantage.

Oh yeah,saw this recently and forgot to post it here. Here you go Evexo

So reports are picking up steam that we are seriousely considering bolstering our left back position, would most likely mean Coentrao will be leaving us.

Top of the list thus far

Speedy 19 year old Valencia defender Jose Luis Gaya U21 Spain player, Madrid said to be willing to meet his buyout.

http://www.cope.es/detalle/El-Real-Madrid-a-por-Gaya.html


And French national player and Varane friend Olympic Lyon 21 year old Samuel Umtiti.

http://deportes.atresmedia.com/jugones/real-madrid-sigue-samuel-umtiti_2015012800330.html
+1
I remember Tottenham playing Lyon a couple of seasons back in the Europa League and Umtiti scored an absolute screamer. He was outstanding that night for them - check out the highlights from that match for a good look at him. Also, in the same match Bale scored two direct free kicks, so there's that to look at also.
+1
Gaya is an amazing left back,we woulds be lucky to have him. Although Coentrao is the perfect backup for Marcelo,it is unfair to a player of his caliber to be content to be the second option.
Coentrao is much to injury prone IMO he is a solid left back but I think the team is really looking at someone that is going to challenge Marcelo for the start.

From what I have seen of Umtiti he looks like an absolute beast.
I've heard very good things about Gaya. Actually, I remember reading from a Madridista who likened him to Dani. He'd take little to no time to integrate. But this obviously means Coentrao's future at the club is put into question. Actually, I think the club have always been keen on transferring him ever since Mourinho left.

I can understand why the club might want to transfer Coentrao. Like Tharius mentioned, he's usually not available to call on. He tends to get injured during inopportune moments, sometimes when we don't even have Marcelo. Coentrao is a consistent LB with enough quality to start for a lot of top European clubs, but he's proven to be unreliable in the sense that you just never know when next he'll find himself in the infirmary. Otherwise, I've never really had any issues with him.

It will be hard to deal with Valencia though. They've always appeared to have something against us. And now, with their new owner, it will be even more difficult for Real Madrid to sign one of their players since wages won't be a major problem for their players. We could activate Gaya's buy-out clause right now, but Perez doesn't normally make such moves, and it'd be in poor sport too. If Gaya extends with Valencia, it will make signing him even more difficult.
If messi played with ronaldo there would be a goal scored every thirty minutes
Even though I don't like the idea...I think Messi would rack up on assists and Ronaldo would score 80+ goals a season.
I think their rivalry is healthy for their achievements.
+1
They could one day in the MLS :P you never know
The way Messi lifted the ball into the box for Alba, Ronaldo would've been drooling thinking of about the possibility
Just to avoid any confusion, it's me, White. I wasn't really fond of my previous username and I didn't want to have Footytube's development team take some of their time for something as minor as changing a username, hence I decided to make a new account altogether.

What does 'White II' mean? As you all previously knew, white was taken up due to its symbolic association with Real Madrid. The 'II' was included because not only could I not use 'White' alone, but as you also already knew, I'm not really good with coming up with usernames! I guess 'II' should mean this is my second coming? lol

I was thinking about 'merengue' or its English translation 'meringue', but for some reason I didn't think I'd be taken seriously if I did decide to use those names...

Yep, love eating those merengues. Haha we heartily welcome your second coming. Why not use AFGMadridista again if you can't think of a better username lol?
+1
I always knew it, Cjayzz. Deep down inside, you do care about me. ;)

Because it was too long a username, and I'm not just Afghan. Actually, I was born in the True North Strong and Free, so that username would've been a bit inaccurate. I'm surprised anyone would remember that username though. Last I used it was in Footytube's prehistoric period.
+1
LOL white , you're master at making new accounts - XD

Welcome back !!!

White, a man of many names

Welcome back friend :D

White are your parents afghans? And I can't call you white. I'm just gonna stick to AFG

Yeah, both of them are Afghan. Why can't you call me White though?
Anyone else HATE Mascherano and Alba?
+3
I think most people would LOVE Mascherano in their team.
Maybe I can understand hate on Alba, but what makes you hate Masch? Just curious.
+7
I'd understand if you asked "anyone else hate Suarez, and Neymar" but why Masch??? lol
+1
I don't hate them but I get irritated with them including busquets when I see them play! I actually like Suarez and Neymar but I won't stop making fun of them whenever given a chance! :p
Mashi really? thought him and iniesta were the casillas/Moderic for me
Mascherano is such a sweet player, no reason to hate him regardless of which team you support.

But why do you hate either of them? can you please explain the reason?
Alba is a no brainier, but there is something about Mascherano that just pisses me off. I know some defenders do this, but when ever he makes a defensive mistake and the opponent gets passed him he will act like he got shot and drop to the floor. I'll never forget that Clasico where he acted like he got stabbed in the eye when Adebayor had his hand NEAR his face.
I have more examples, but I think you guys get the point.
+2
barca supporters been complaining about Atleti players goin out there and playing like animals.... thats nothing new to us... i used to hate that atelti would play this exact same way against any and every single team in la liga and then when we played them our players wouldn't hesitate to give just as good as as they get and we were the bad guys... i understand our team doesn't have any saints but atleti have always been ridiculously violent but its always been ignored.... and not only by fans but by the federation as well.

i remember last season i said i wanted one of our players to just punch costa in the face... some users bashed me for it and after what he did against liverpool yesterday and every other team he seems to play against, the guy still deserves at least a little back hand lol

Raul Garcia has had a serious punch to the mouth coming for years now.... im surprised no one aint followed turan's example and thrown a boot at him yet lol
+2
Atletico's behaviour was generally ignored last season because they were seen as the underdogs. Humans like a good underdog story because many of us can relate to such a label. Neutrals would ignore their behaviour and show sympathy instead. I think it also had to do with the negative impression the footballing world had, and still has, of Real Madrid.

But things are starting to change. Whether we care to admit it or not, Atletico are a superpower in Spain now and they've promoted themselves in Europe as well. Neutrals will no longer see them as underdogs, but instead as equals whenever they go up against Spain's traditional 'Big 2'. There will be less underdog sympathy, and more objective judgements.
+1
^ I was thinking about it last night from the way people on barca board were pissed off at their violence. I couldn't help but think to myself that the honeymoon phase for atleti is over. Last year they did awful things especially with your team and everybody went with their Cinderella story.
A bit off topic, but do you guys think Ronaldo's personal life has affected his tremendous form as of late?

Didn't he just break up with his girlfriend after a 5 year relationship? He may be a monster on the pitch, but he is human after all. I hope he finds comfort in the millions and millions of dollars he has in the bank and his beloved fans.

I knew something was off when she didn't show up to the Ballon D'or gala. What a bitch! hahahah joking!

On a serious note, relationships can mess you up mentally. I hope he comes back as hungry as ever.
+1
i honestly think ronaldo is just tired.. so as the rest of the team...he already has more goals than most of the world's best attacking players will get for this entire season, so its easy to see why he has looked a little worn out lately.....

Normally ronaldo responds to anything thats negative with ridiculous amount of goals.... so thats a good thing for us.
+6
Ronaldo already have a new GF & will be fresh for the match against Athleti ,
Martin Ødegaard will have his first training session (as a RM player) tommorrow.
