Pepe is out again,still no set time for his return. And jus recently I read that Ancelotti finally has all his players available after almost a year. Guess not lol.

In steps Varane again. Carlo really needs to make him a permanent starter. I get that Pepe is a great defender,but It's only logical that he takes a step back and let a younger guy like Varane play more. Pepe would still get a lot of chances,knowing how much our back 4 changes during the season.
We have to be careful with Varane. Even though he is relatively young, he is good enough to start for us, and one day he might get fed up with not starting and leave. Not saying he'll do that, but you never know with young players...
I get that varane is the future and all but pepe is only 32... maybe its just too soon for pepe to be stepping aside... I mean at 34 its another thing but pepe has been our best defender DEFENSIVELY for about 2 seasons now... Ramos has always been vital for us but pepe has been a better defensive player than ramos... though obviously no one will dare to bench ramos in madrid, his spot should realistically be in greater danger than pepe's
Does anyone else see us back in our beast form as from the clasico?
No! :-P
+1
with the international break it will be intersting to see how we come out of the gates.
Modric has gotten much needed match fitness, Bale looks to be in good form, and Carlo had time to step back and think about what he can do to fix this. Now that Modric is back, Carlo has the option to give Kroos a much needed rest. Ramos is also back, so that'll being order in the back line. The future looks bright, for once.
Yep,I see you guys are recycling 2015 from beginning;-)
@degaza, nope this squad seems to have lost all it's mojo...once again.
Nah... I honestly believe we are about to perform again
OFFICIAL: Real Madrid sign Danilo Luiz de Silva from Porto for 31.5M€

Welcome to the Casa Blanca my boy pretty exciting prospect with two Selecao wingbacks marauding up the line.

Cue Realfan samba music!!!

And if the details leaked prior to the official announcment are correct it is to be paid in 3 installments of 10MEuro each, with Arbie to be on his way out if we can get 5+Million for him its a fantastic deal for a projected top 3 left back and many touting him to be the best left back in the next couple of seasons.

I just love his mobility he covers alot of ground very very fast, stamina is off the charts and can shoot with both feet,thats amazing from any player now a days and I dont mean just little punts he can rip long distance shots with both feet, watch his tapes and he can move inside to his left and hit 30+ yard screamers and has taken alomost all his penalties with his right foot... what a trip can wait to see him on the white shirt.

And for all those that say well what about Carvie have nothing to worry about plenty of minutes to be shared as every season demonstrates us and I think implies to Carlo that both will be interchanged frequently or 2015 could be his last season.
Great player Dont see the point in signing him if Carlo keeps refusing to use the bench
this in other words also means bye bye Alvaro
DaGaza aren't you Carioca as well?
31.5M€ april fools came early this year.
yeah i am
So how does this happen outside the transfer window?
+1
you can sign any player you want any time you want... but they are not allowed to join the club or leave their current club till the window opens
+2
I'm sorry but 31 mil? Are you kidding me? Carvajal is way better and how much did he cost you guys to buy himback, 12 mil?

He will have lots of pressure because of his price tag and Carlo will be forced to play him or bench him for Carvajal. I could see another Illira situation.
+1
is carvajal rated that highly i madrid? i honestly thought danilo the better player
+1
LOL SanchezAlexis really?? is that why Barcelona had him as their first pick to replace Alves?? cause he would be inferior to Carvajal cmon now.
For me Carvajal is perfect for you guys. Why ruin that by buying Danilo for that much? On paper it's easy to have two solid RBs but one of them needs to play way more than the other.
^^Thats a whole different story whats ur saying now and its pretty obvious the club felt Carvie is far from perfect and we need another option that can offer us something different and Carvie is white through and through he knows better then anyone that competiton for spots is something we dont shy from and he will not cry about it publicly either like others have you will see he wants best for the club and himself second.

"Oh but he played more minutes then me!!" Well son did you score more goals, make more tackles win more headers, make more assists thats what it should boil down to, Each will offer differing strengths and plenty of mintues and injuries to share.
Even though both play in same position but i don't think it fair to compare them , carvajal have a better defensive and positional awareness then danilo whereas Danilo is better in attacking sense .

My only question with this move is how on earth any carlo or another manager will fit two attacking fullback and still be able to maximize both of their qualities , even if both Danilo and Marcelo start together i would expect one of them to play a conservative role and stay back , just like what Alba is doing this season . Also you have to remember Madrid is playing without any true defensive midfielder and just image two attacking fullback on top of that :@
Both are very good rb's but this idea that carvajal will understand that he has to fight for his position and wouldn't mind being replaced by another rb is competely misplaced. In theory competition is healthy but you never really have to first team players in the same position. So if one is in stellar form and doesn't give any opportunity for the other to play does the other player rot away on the bench? It doesn't matter how bad you're playing because in the end the player pushed down the pecking order will look for opportunity elsewhere. Carvajal can show a slight indication that he's looking for opportunities elsewhere and entire bpl will start knocking on madrid's door. On the other hand if danilo doesn't manage to get into the first team he'll look elsewhere because both players are very young.

We have ter Stegen who hasn't played in the league and supposedly 2nd in the pecking order. But bravo is much older and ter stegen knows he'll eventually be first gk. I don't see how any of the two rbs would mind waiting around for their turn.
+2
If anything Danilo is someone who can provide cover on that back line, somewhat of what Arbeloa and Nacho do. I rate Carvajal very highly, if he's consistent like usual and puts in a good shift he won't have to worry.

Starting with both Marcelo and Danilo can be very dangerous no? That's two fullbacks who will be marauding down the flanks the whole game, leaving us exposed at the back. Kind of like Alba and Dani Alves before they became more defensive minded.
Carvajal is the better right back and will kwep his place in the starting 11 no doubt... I actually like the signing... its giving us more options in the squad and more quality players to replace other quality players. My priblem though, is a man called carlo ancelotti and his refusal to use the bench...

he publicly admitted he doesnt like rotation.. the season we are having is gonna repeat itself over and over again.. a good start, then an incredible and rapid dip in form followed by injuries... so I dont see the point in signing quality players when carlo keeps starting the same players no matrer the match, no matter the formation, no matter the form...
Danilo isn't as good at defense as Carvajal. I think Carvajal provides a lot of stability at the back because Madrid play a very attacking game with barely any defensive minded players in the midfield. As an option, Danilo is obviously a very good signing but I don't see how he's going to help with your defensive issues which seems to a bigger problem than your attack which is over loaded with talent in every part of the field.
I think everyone is really undervaluing Danilos defensive abilities already and he hasnt even started playing yet, he hasnt been a defensive liability for POrto and he hasnt been one for the Canarihna, so lets all hold our collective horses here and lets see what he brings and judge his defensive abilities once he has played some time with REAL MADRID.

Its going to be tough for Carvajal because I've seen Danilo play for Porto and his really good, not to mention Danilo can transition his game and become more of a stable FB to ensure he can be picked over Carvajal. Its not that hard to turn your style of football to suit your team, I think Danilo will learn. All in all, both are top quality RBs and bring something to the table, sucks that Carlo doesn't like to rotate.
Very good analysis Moe66 agree 100%^^

I personally think if both play really well Carlo will naturally begin to rotate more, if he doesnt he will get pressure from the club and rightly so, it is of course dependant on how each is playing because if ones form is poor the other should start with out a doubt, and if he stills doesnt do it and the stars are aligned he will be fired, then again if he wins la Liga and or the champions league then no one will care. :P
AWWHHH YEAHHH! Another Brazilian mothafackas!

you guys remember during the Mourinho days, Marcelo was his starter LB but would play Coentrao against tough opponents away from home. Maybe Carlo will do the same with Carvajal and Danilo.

Oh and people that are worried Danilo will be another Illara, Illara had more than enough changes to prove himself. If Kaka got the same changes Illara did, he would still be our number 8...

@Malik is right, how is Carlo going to play 2 very attack minded full backs and no real defensive mid fielder? Maybe Casemiro will play instead of Isco to add balance? (I've never been a huge fan of Isco) or maybe we'll sign Pogba? Hmmmm lets see what Carlo wants.
trust me, this is another shady deal by real madrid...

with the quality of carvajal and still developing; i don't see any reason why real madrid should have thot of signing Danilo; except they may just want to prevent Barcelona from getting him...

the only deal we should be doing with Porto right now is getting back Casemiro (and offering them illarramendi for free + cash)
If we'd be looking for DM Pogba is way too attack minded.
There were many clubs in the EPL that were interested in Hernandez and he chose come to madrid , a wanna be galactico.He is a good player and can resurrect his career elsewhere next season.I'm tired of madrid donating money for soccer players when dey are in financial trouble.
+1
Pretty sure he was making a good amount of money at United, no "donation" there. He came here to get more playing time and we needed a backup number 9. However Benzema has stayed fit and despite his bad form, it's Ancelotti who refuses to properly use Chicharito.
+5
You have a valid point , however he had an opportunity but did not take advantage, Ronaldo is not scoring but you know he will play regardless , the front are guaranteed a starting place besides Madrid is way to big for him, he needs to go join clubs lke Bayern Leverkusen, Geneoa ,Stoke City Southampton ,Aston Villa, or Liverpool plus Arsenal he will shine there.
financial trouble...??oh my..you never fail to amaze me with your statements..
+4
Can you pls take him back to Manchester United he will help you qualify for Europa . We thank him for his services. Hope he did save the money.
This is how easily you would discard the raining Ballon D'or winner and a club legend? Really? A couple of bad games(for his standards) and he is our problem? I'm sorry,but I'm disgusted by this way of thinking. A player brings years and years of consistency and excellence and just a couple of not so good games is enough to overweight that.
@Kwadman

http://www.howmuch-money.com/much-money-chicharito-hernandez-make/ yea please check this out on info about his so called financial trouble...
and again how old are u..??
I think he's talking about Chicharito Pejvl. I don't like to see any player be blamed for no reason, and honestly speaking Chicharito has done nothing wrong. For now he's a Madrid player, to suggest we bought him out of pity is pretty far fetched and not a way to treat players.
Yeah,you're probably right Hikmat, I was pretty sleepy so I skipped some of the post above. But still,know his stand on Ronaldo,this isn't that far off lol.

As for Chicharito,I can't really blame the guy. What can you expect when most that you get is a cameo in 80th minute? He never got the chance. If he had at least 5 matches where he started in La Liga and didn't prove his worth,than I would agree. But Carlo really pushed him aside,even when Benzema was in one of his terrible periods.
Its "sink or swim" time for Bale.
+2
Not really.
+7
Why sign players to help CR7 best Barcelona's dominance of Europe and Spain and then allow him to basically dictate who actually does help? Makes 0 sense. At this point in his career he should be BIG enough to suffocate on his pride and say I do need the help, I'll step aside at times, I'll give way.

Couldn't care less about his competitive nature especially when it's not helping his teammates. Think it looks good to others on the pitch and on the bench when he acts as if every single err someone else does is something he'll never do.

G.Bale is a top player and he constantly shows it for the National side, makes me wonder if our club coach ever watches these guys play for their National team. If so then find a way to make it work.

Ever wonder why Alonso never really celebrated when CR7 scored when he was still at RM? Was plain to see that Xabi never fully accepted CR7's attitude, couldn't change it but as a teammate had to accept simply because both represented RM.

Many will always say different but honestly CR7 will bring us much joy and at the same time will bring sadness if he doesn't change his attitude with his teammates and allow them to help.

Why doesn't he celebrate the goals by others with the same excitement as all the rest who go to celebrate with the goal scorer, he's almost always the last to go over = arrogance.

Can now see why Spain and most other nationalities boo/whistle him as much as they do, too arrogant a player.

Arrogance does not = Determination!!

lol #blamenaldo

What do you plan on accomplishing by posting the same exact thing for weeks on end Pedmar? It gets kind of boring.
+12
@Hikmat

Speak for yourself! Pedmar has developed a set of devoted fans that love to read his commentary, including myself.
+3
It is the Balon D'Or effect on Cristiano - hasn't been convincing and really inconsistent since he won it.

Time will tell, Cristiano will find his motivation then he will be a beast again.

Xabi does celebrate Cristinao goals mate, especially the important or game winning goals from Cristiano. We can tell how passionate Xabi can be when celebrating goals.
+2
funny is that Benzema is less enthusiastic than anyone, even Ronaldo, when celebrating other's goals.....Benzema hardly ever runs to celebrate unless its in a big game like classico....

and yet..... well, u already know.. #blamenaldo
+6
i stopped visiting forum these days coz of this posts...bro.chill..no need to say samething over and over again..
+1
Yet still I've watched commentary from people who has tons more information than ANYONE here who said exactly the same thing I've said. Watch any on the commentary on soccernet and they all say the same thing.

Why did none of them not say that CR7 hasn't helped in creating this situation?? WHY!!!

@Hikmat I post it week after week for people like you who blindly follow instead of asking why should I follow. From the moment CR7 joined RM we became a more dangerous team and from the moment he joined it also created many divisions where he's had issues with Iker, Ramos, Alonso, Mou, Bale, Marcelo and yet I hear shyte about "blamenaldo".

Grow the f..k up and realize that unless CR7 accepts EVERYTHING that others try to do in the effort to HELP this RM win then there will always be problems with him and someone else. Has there been ONE SEASON where there hasn't been any issue with either player or coach at RM??

Everytime RM isn't performing well CRISTIANO RONALDO'S name is always associated to being somewhat of the underlying reason for RM not finding a way to do better.

Think we playing shitty for the start of 2015 'til now and instead of helping by showing support he f...g added to the problem with his show of annoyance towards another member of the BBC for not scoring when he has been GUILTY on numerous times in his RM career to date and none of the other's reactions has been publicized nowhere NEAR how his has been. So until you or any of you can show me otherwise, STFU and either read and leave it alone or just STFU!!!!
Ronaldo is crumbling under the pressure of being the best player since his award. Bale will come good, and he's essential for when it's Ronaldo's time to leave. Give Chicha a try, scored a brilliant goal for Mexico recently.
^ I think if ronaldo ever "crumbled" over pressure he wouldnt be where he is today... went through a bad patch.. something he remained two years without... if u look at the stats he has picked it back up already.
+2
now its Ronaldo's fault mourinho caused divisions between iker, ramos, Alonso, marcelo, pepe, arbeloa..... lol #blamenaldo

Pedmar, your most recent comment is terribly embarrassing for you. You really can't speak to other users like that. You're heading towards problems if you keep this up. Absolutely uncalled for.
+4
I hate kids who start talking trash about their own team when the team or the star player is not doing well. Go after this player or that coach, typical Real Madrid problem, and absolutely immature behavior.

The player you are complaining about is the winner of Ballon D'or, highest scorer for Madrid since he has played, with an average of 1 goal per game. I don't care if he cries when the rest of the team scores. He scores, he scores a ton more than the rest of the RM team combined. So cry me a river that he is not dancing at your birthday for you because that's what you would like him to do. He is a footballer and the best at it, I don't like him for his personality, I could care less about it. I like him for his football and I understand that any player will have fluctuations in his form. His form dipped before Ballon D'or so please don't make that an excuse.

Every player at RM has to fall in line when it comes to Ronaldo because he is a model athlete. He trains the hardest, plays better than anyone, and scores more than anyone. That commands automatic respect within the dressing room. That will change the day there is a player playing better than Ronaldo. Till then hold your horses.
+7
CR7 is a realfootballer however,ever since the selfish guy complained despite Bale scoring his half chance, I don't like him as much. He plays for individual glory and not for the success of the team.
+1
he has good personality too
Lol. Did you hear guys? Better agree with Pedmar or shut the f**k up! He won't stop repeating himself until you all nod in agreement and bow to his will.

LATEST NEWS: Lucas Silva heading to Porto on loan

Player quoted as saying " a loan is a good option"

Truthfully love his attitude he knows deep down its going to be better to develop his European game further as did Casemiro, good luck Lucas if he is loaned,nothing yet confirmed but the news has already reached his ear.

Sorry didn't get to finish my post before i hit save and something came up nothing confirmed as of yet.
Makes no sense to me.. isn't Khedira leaving?
Yup I agree^ but nothing confirmed but media did ask him today and Casemiro maybe coming back aswell
Noooo! Just when we were signing Brazilians...
Casemiro!!!!
Or POGBA?
Both!

Imagine midfield options with isco kroos Casemiro pogba Modric James
the best defender in the world turns 29 today I wish more great things to come from the warrior and future hall of fame!
+4
I could've sworn Pique only turned 28 two months ago :P
+10
He said best, not most over hyped.
+11
thats what weegeez pointing here,best,not over hyped orc:)
I don't think Boateng became 29. ;)
He's predicting Varane's future birthday obviously.
So this is the newest list of fastest players in the world right now,determined by their top speeds while controlling the ball, recorded this season:

1. Gareth Bale (Real Madrid) 36,9 km/h
2. Jurgen Damm (Pachuca) 35,23
3. Antonio Valencia (Manchester United) 35,1
4. Aaron Lennon (Everton) 33,8
5. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) 33,6
6. Theo Walcott (Arsenal) 32,7
7. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) 32,5
8. Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) 31,2
9. Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) 30,7
10. Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid) 30,6

No surprise that Gareth is first,and by some margin too. Ronaldo is still up there,and by far my biggest surprise is Ramos making the top 10. I know he's fast but I never knew he could be this fast.
Where's Robben?
+2
Saw this on Facebook and was very surprised that Ramos was so fast, just like you said I knew he was fast but not that fast.

I think the biggest surprise though has to be Damm from Pachuca, I have seen some of his blistering runs but I had no idea he was up there with the best of them.
is rooney still fast? ramos on the list?
I'm pretty sure if ronaldo wasn't carrying the minor knee injury that he is he would be up there with bale... maybe not faster but just as fast.
Where the f**k is Kaka?
well according to this website Robben is the fastest but this was recorded in the world cup

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/worldcup2014/article-2659972/Arjen-Robben-fastest-footballer-world-rapid-sprint-Holland-against-Spain-World-Cup-2014.html
This list is a joke lol.. How on earth does Rooney belong on that list and the likes of Robben doesn't.
+4
What's the source Pejvl?
Found it here:

http://the18.com/news/22-year-old-mexican-2nd-fastest-dribbler-world

You can find it on many other sites,this was approved by FIFA. Although I am also surprised Robben didn't make it and Rooney did. I guess it's a viable source as it can be,it must not be easy to measure this things.
There's something fishy with this list. Didn't Aubameyang record a sprint speed really close to Usain Bolt? And I am also pretty sure Jordi Alba is faster than half the people on that list, especially Rooney.
+1
I think it's on ball speed, there's a pretty big difference for some players with bad ball control.
@hikmat

how do you define ball speed? im confused
Speed while running with the ball, sorry that was unclear. On ball sprint speed.

For example Aubameyang is pretty fast without the ball, with the ball he lacks the close control to dribble and run fast at the same time, unlike Messi who without the ball is fast but with the ball is crazy.
Hikmat: You're right but if they're tracking speed on the ball they have to create a few more categories. Players like Bale, Lennon are super quick but theirs is less of a dribble and more of push and sprint. Messi rarely pushes the ball far from him whereas Lennon can't dribble with even one defender around him.
Well, as long as you're moving the ball with your foot where you want to go, isn't that dribbling?
+2
^ exactly.

http://www.talkfootball.co.uk/guides/football_dribbling.html

Funny how today when people say "dribbling" they refer to Messi's dribbling and then compare it somebody else.

Also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmidaZ9oSyE
Franky there is a difference but as long as possession is maintained I think it still counts as dribbling
Where is Aubameyang??
This list's premise:
* name a bunch of famous players who are fast or kind of fast and put in one unknown name so it makes the news elsewhere. Also: leave out some big name players who are obviously faster for controversy.

Mission accomplished!

If you really want to make a list like this, you have to check millions of players worldwide. I'm sure the actual top 100 of the fastest players with the ball would include 95 names we've never heard of.
Yes. You could find yards of space in front of you and push the ball about 20 yards and then race to catch the ball or you could slalom between 4 defenders at a high pace which most players can't handle. That's why I mentioned Aaron Lennon. The guy has pace and only pace.

Standardcritic: what's funny is the link that you posted actually defines dribbling as a series of touches shielding the ball from players something that messi does in his sleep. Your article also mentions that beginners push the ball hard to get pace and expose themselves to tackles which is dribbling but not in the true sense of the word.
I wud be scared if I was a madrid supporter... Remember Ancelotti is the same guy who got fired in Chelsea. And lost Ligue 1 where his team squandered a 10 point league in the league...
January is gone so I expect a new coach by the end of this year
so, you're not a madrid supporter then?

@st1or

lol i thought that was already obvious but its always good when someone comes out and speaks the truth... mama would be proud ;')

He blew his cover big time haha

To a certain degree i'm speaking from a footballing perspective. Excuse me if i beg to differ ,I'm informing hence my statement was based of observation and analysis. My criticism helps best my team. [mod edit: Please avoid attacking specific users)

If Ancelotti is not fired by 2016 I'll quit whatever it is I'm doing and go climb mount everest...........Madrid I remain
damn you just made it obvious that you're trolling mate
+4
' I wud be scared if I was a Madrid supporter ' poor choice of words , Kwadman

although i sort of agree with the post , Ancelotti domestic competitions success record is poor but on other hand he have won CL 3 times ( including the Madrid biggest obsession of last decade ' La Dacima ' )

I don't think any another manager in the world would had better managed the situation Madrid were in after Mou left them , he was the calming presence which naturally aggressive Madrid needed .

As for him continuing for another season , so good news for you is that it seems more unlikely that he will continue for another season , his contract extension is put on hold ( which was in full flow at start of the season ) and even before this contract issue zidane was already tipped to take over the first team for season 15/16 , so yeah i think he will leave the club regardless of what Madrid achieve this season .

@Kwadman , As for heat you're getting for this post , its never a good idea to post similar thing ( especially if its a hate post ) 3 times within very short space of time .
@Kwadman

'run naked over here'

no thanks lol.. And that was probably the worst damage control I've ever seen.
Guys, he's an obvious troll with these personal attacks. Reported and ignore, maybe he'll get tired of it and leave.
kwadman, check your wall. More personal attacks will result you in you losing your posting abilities.
