Read the guys had a get together over some dinner to say we're in this together and we're the ones who're going to decide whether we lift any titles or not.

Great to see such happenings.

Yea they went to FOX COOK in Madrid about 5 mins away from the Bernabeu I was there last summer wicked spot great vibe.
Tharius, why don't you show off a little more? Haha but that's awesome you got to visit Bernabeu. Once I go to Camp Nou one day, I will surely make a stop in Madrid and check out the stadiums there.
Future ballon d'Or and very underrated player. #Ilusionista

When he's at his best, he something of an Iniesta/Ronaldinho hybrid. Amazing player!
Isco is too good. I envy Madrid everytime I see him playing. He has potential to top legends if he keeps it up
What a gem of a player!
yeah he's improved so much in this season imo now that he's settled in madrid i suppose. a player like him cant be on the bench. you guys are really spoilt for talent
So apparentley Simeone and assistant Monos Burgos confronted the coach of Bayer Leverkusen and even called him PUTO which if you dont speak spanish it means whore, their gripe was because they were unhappy with what they saw as a Bayer team playing WAY TO PHYSICAL and in thier eyes dirty.

LOL wow when the shoe is on the other foot and they are getting their own medicine. I like this Simeone less and less and [mod edit]

Simeone is still the same as he was while playing. Team player,very very hard working,and a constant motivator. He transferred that spirit to Atletico,and now they are basically a team molded by his style of play. But with that comes the bad par of him as well. Aggressive and dirty are the softest words i can think off in this case.
Typical

But I prefer Atletico be in the UCL as long as possible... Their squad depth is not great and will eventually burn them out - in the League as well.
Just like it burnt them out last year right?
Puto doesn't mean whore it is used in many different ways which are pretty much all derogatory
I thought whore was Puta? At least that's what people use in my country lol. Here, Puto is a delicious rice cake.

Edit: Apparently there is a masculine form of puta. Didn't know that.
Yeah, I didn't expect anything else from Simeone. Great coach, terrible loser.

By the way, this is a good opportunity to display how one minor punctuation mark can make a sentence completely different:

I'll have me some of that puto, SRACon!

I'll have me some of that, puto SRACon!

Always be wary of what the media writes, they often leave out crucial bits of information or present their information in a way that sends out a very twisted version of reality.
+1
You're right, it's very easy to twist someone's words. It can be really quite hard to discern if what one hears or reads from the media is factual or not, all the more because we already have our own preconceived notion about something or someone.
puta madre
hijo de puta
puto
puta

they dont directly translate but all are curse words
I am Spanish speaking and was trying to state the literal translation and puta means whore,puto being the male version but used as an insult obviously.
+1
Tharius, is spanish your first or second language? Where did you learn spanish? What style/country?
Was born in Colombia spoke Spanish in my household even though my father is German, also lived in Spain from the age of 15-17, have travelled and encountered most countries in South America and central America and PUTA literally means what I said before, now it can be used in many conotations but if someone calls you an HIJO DE PUTA it litrerally means you are a son of a whore, and you should probably begin dropping your gloves to take off his nose.

http://www.interglot.com/dictionary/es/en/translate/puta

NOw if I were to say something like DE PUTA MADRE it would mean that is amazing, but it still would literally mean of a whores mother:)
Tharius, check your wall
You guys should realize this topic of conversation is not proper subject matter for Footytube. Doesn't matter how you say it its offensive. Shut er down!
Tharius, i am used to puta being used very differently. Puta madre is an expression of bad luck frustration anger and amazement
^ Mexican!!
ريال مدريد نادي عريق قادر على أي بطولة أتمنى لة التوفيق
It's common courtesy to write in English here mate. Not everyone speaks Arabic.
Ancelotti has won this club 4 titles in less than 2 years, one of them being the Champions League. He was able to rectify a disruptive dressing room that I have reason to believe contributed in a poor 2012/2013 season. He's also helped keep Real Madrid competitive despite all of the external and internal obstacles that have presented themselves this season.

But to think there's no room for improvement would be a costly mistake on his part. One particular aspect of his managerial ability that concerns me is his implementation of rotations and his management of squad players.

His lack of rotations are clear and noticeable. He often heads into fixtures, even those that are relatively straightforward, with the same starting 11. When he does decide to rotate the squad, it's usually because his hand is forced (i.e. injuries and suspensions).

During the course of 90 minutes, his substitutions usually come unreasonably late as well.

Isco has received recognition for his sudden rise in prominence, heavily involved in contributing to the overall collective functionality of the team. Some would argue he's been our most consistent, or effective, player this season. But would Isco been given the opportunity to reach such an elite level if it were not for untimely injuries in the midfield? Last I recall, Ancelotti was insistent on a midfield with James, Kroos, and Modric.

The same can be said of Varane. Would Varane have been given adequate time on the pitch were Ramos and Pepe to remain fit and healthy?

Let's look at Jese, for example. In his last 6 appearances in the league, he's been given insufficient minutes. Apart from the matches against Sevilla and Atletico, in which Ancelotti's hands were forced by unexpected injuries, Jese's introduction into the match came at the following periods:

80', 74', 86', 90' (he only had 30 seconds of on-pitch time).

Its been over 2 months since he's been training with the first team, yet he's being treated as though he just got back. I can understand gradually easing him in, but the aforementioned minutes don't even provide justification for that. Furthermore, we've had instances in which our forwards haven't nearly contributed enough. Jese's inclusion becomes necessary during these moments, yet we see a passive response from Ancelotti on each occasion, often falsely expressing his contentment with Ronaldo and Bale...

For a player with the potential to be involved as much as Jese, you need to provide them with ample minutes. They need to get a feel for the game, to feel their team, and to understand where their level of quality is at.

Illarra is another example. Illarra clearly isn't a starter, but he's a squad player who's content with his role. Furthermore, and contrary to popular belief, he's a very useful player, especially under our current set-up. Capable of reliable ball circulation (i.e. retention and distribution), he has the potential to provide composure in what is usually an unstable midfield.

Instead, we see Kroos being overused. I've noticed a decline in overall functionality from Kroos since the beginning of the season. Illarra should be given more opportunities to spread his wings while giving Kroos a much needed rest. Instead, Illarra is played in an uncharacteristic position with a role not perfectly compatible with what he's used to, and that's if he finds time on the pitch.

I won't even get started on Chicha. Poor guy.

Many of our squad players have made many appearances for the team this season, but that's a misleading statistic. What they are in need of is adequate minutes to fine-tune their football, feel the team, and to remain sharp throughout the entire season. They're not getting that.

There will come a point in time (and I'd say we're dealing with this right now), where relying on squad players will provide no assurance whatsoever. Why? Because they wouldn't have had ample time to fine-tune their football and remain competitively sharp to make a difference.

We have quality not only in the first 11, but in the entire squad. Each player has their use. Madridista's fail to see this though. I've found us to have an unreasonably inane method of judging player effectiveness relative to team necessity.

It is IMPERATIVE that everyone on the squad FEELS IMPORTANT if we are to win titles this season. If we want to be able to rely on every squad member, we'll need to provide them with a reasonable number of minutes.
+2
waaaaaaay to long for me to read :p
+3
Agreed on everything you said Meringue. For rotations to work,that means you have to take risk sometimes. Start Jese and Illarra against a smaller team and leave Bale and Kroos on the bench. Kroos has literally played every single game,and almost always he played he full 90 minutes.

Probably the only consistent rotation Carlo made was at the RB spot,where we see Arbeloa start against same smaller teams. As a result,we always have a well rested Carvajal,ready to run up and down the field the whole game. Chicharito has been marginalized so much,and when he does get the chance,it never comes before 80th minute.

And now that we have injuries all around,even if Carlo wanted to make rotations,he doesn't have any options anymore. This needs to change next season,or we are again going to have a very tired 11 players going into the last crucial part of the season.
+1
Even when the circumstances do not permit any form of risk, there are still moments in the course of a 90 minute match where introducing players earlier would be beneficial for them. I get that starting some of those names ahead of more deserving players is not the way we run the team, but providing them with at least 20 minutes when we're comfortably leading wouldn't hurt.
Neymar ready to beat up a Man City kid yesterday because he called him a diver

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOBiwuG-C4Q

Reporter : what did he say to you

Neymar : what he said to me? i cant really tell... My Mother educated me... Thats something my mother gave me which his mother didnt bother give him.
His comment becomes ironic when he decides to involve someone else's mother...
+1
What a little twat. That no name loser is lucky a super star like Neymar even bothered to waste his time talking to him.
Neymar couldn't beat up my Grandma haha have you seen him?

But yeah, he was just frustrated over all because I'm sure players get abused by fans every game.
^ Then he should be used to it. And why does it always end with bringing one's mother into it lol
+4
Yeah, I'm with AFG (is it OK to still call you that?) here. Just ignore the twats, don't give them their two seconds in the spotlights. And I also agree bringing up his mother whom Neymar doesn't know is pathetic.
+1
Sure :)
+1
The 2nd leg is set up real nicely for some upsets.
Its insane that Chelsea, Arsenal, City, Atletico could get knocked out in the first round.
^

Chelsea won't and Atletico won't either. Arsenal and city were bound to anyway.
PSG is going to beat Chelsea.
+3
Currently the only teams that I am confident will qualify are Monaco and R. Madrid.
Arsenal/Shalke have to score away 3 goals to have any chance to win the match. It just feels impossible considering that they are playing away.
@realfan , psg took a 3-1 lead to Stamford bridge last season yet they got knocked out by Chelsea , also Chelsea as team have improved considerable we'll from last season .
This year PSG will learn from their mistakes. And besides, with Lucas coming back, their attack will be 2x stronger! I'm confident Silva will have Costa in his back pocket, again, so hopefully Ibra, Cavani or Lucas score at least 1 goal.
Are you forgetting this is Mourinho at Stamford Bridge? It's unlikely PSG will score even once, let alone more than Chelsea themselves in their home.
@Realfan its Stamford bridge. We wont attack PSG, but they will get caught on the counter, Fabergas wasnt fully fit either so if Costa and Fabergas are on top game i dout if PSG can beat us

PS. Why so much hate on Chelsea?
I thought Torres' goal should have been counted
I haven't seen the replay clearly but the reason is the ball went out of play. Poor corner.
Arsenal should have signed Kondogbia when they had the chance. He will cost much more now.
+1
monaco are broke, they are trying to offload falcao for example, even sent him out on loan just to ease the wage bill. their president is going through a divorce and will lose half his money. wouldn't be surprised to see kondogbia leave at a cut rate prices as they cut costs.
Cannavaro, the guy who robbed Ronaldinho of his Ballon D'or, is going to jail for 10 months.
+3
That's some salty introduction for a player that won us La Liga back in the day.
+4
Why is he going to jail for 10 months?
taxes.
similar to Messi problem.
^ He's not going to jail because of taxes. He had his property confiscated and wasn't supposed to be using it because of unpaid tax bills. He decided to go for a swim and basically broke into property that technically no longer belongs to him.
+2
Yeah glad its not Messi or Neymar for once haha.

He is being charged with tax evasion and has lost rights to some of his properties, so it was breaking in to his own home. Sad.
You should change your name to BrazilFan, it's more appropriate, I don't care about what Canavaro did but on this page you are not allowed to speak bad about one of beloved ex players, particularly not to glorify one of the ennemies, do not humanise the enemy :/
+2
Sorry Chelo. I'll ask Matt to change my user name to Brazilfan. Do you have any other demands while we're on the subject? Maybe I should change my profile picture to Ronaldo?
+2
^Change your name to RonaldinhoNeymarfan, profile pic to Rivaldo and remain a Real Madrid fan at the same time! That ought to confuse a few people.
