Pepe has left Turkish team Basiktas. Pretty sure this is it for his football career. What a defender he was. He was the type that defended with his life, and that is something not all defenders have. He will be remembered fondly by Madrid fans.
I almost wish Real players could take a break but we have the FIFA championship games while everyone else is resting their players.

Champions league draws are going to see some interesting match ups,

Athletico vs. Juventus
Man U vs PSG (final nail in Mourinho’s cofin?)
Liverpool vs. Bayern (let’s see how strong they really are this year)

Looks like we're getting Ajax
+1
Not a bad draw. Hope Solari has fixed our offense by then.
We got the three points. Moving up at least temporarily to second place after Barcelona and athleti. But, again, not convincing in attack! Against a buttom of the league team that made so many mistakes! 1-0 is NOT good enough... I was hoping to increase that goal deficit in this game. Now watch Barcelona put 5 past Levante.

My take:
Asensio- again, the only thing he does well is running with the ball. One on one w goalie and nothing. Sure, Asensio is only 22 but isn’t Dembele his age?

Ceballos- was terrible.

Varane- want to know the difference between Verane and Ramos? Watch minute 92:20ish. Ramos fighting with two attackers, at least one of whom should be Verane’s responsibility, Verane... he won’t get involved. He is watching the lob fall unto the three players. That’s the problem with Verane. Other than that this wasn’t the type of game where Verane’s lack of spine would shine through his otherwise brilliant defending/physical skills. If it wasn’t for what I saw at 92:20, I would have said Verane was great.

Courtois- awesome. He really is world class (knock on wood)

Everyone else- was great. So why the 1-0, and why so little dangers on Rayo Vallecano goal? We have to ask Solari that question.

We keep screaming our attack is not doing well.. when we all know we are missing a beast upfront.

Honestly, at this point in CR7's career a change was needed for his professional resume, but it was everly going to hurt real madrid in all angle..

I still don't think there is any player out there that can replace his qualities right now for madrid... but we could have bought 1 or 2 players capable of doing better than what we have.

Benzema - i have always said my opinion about him not today, but years back simply because he is not good enough to play that position or carry the responsibilities of scoring goals.

Bale - unfortunately never got the chance to do better than what we know he is capable of doing. He was never going to shine under Ronaldo and his best days look wasted on bench and "injuries"... sometimes, you can still see the spark but only glimpse of it... even Vasquez looks better on the ball than him right now.

Asensio - he has years ahead of him, but he needs to play were there is nothing expected from him to discover his real self. we have had many talents shine one season and disappear the next. I hope its not his story.

Isco - I really don't know what went wrong. I honestly thought this would be the season Isco finds his rightful space in starting 11. before, i thought it was tactics; the fact we are still palying 4-3-3 that he doesn't get his space to shine. but maybe the managers are seeing something we are not. After the CSKA performance, questions have to be asked about his abilities on field, he didn't play well at all especially considering solari played a 4-2-3-1 in that game. and he was directly behind benzema. his natural position i suppose.

vasquez - looks like the only bright side of the attack, pretty consistent and doing what he has always been doing.. just maybe cos he is often playing on the side with Carvajal and odrizola who are really fast as well.. but i said he is pretty consistent, cos Bale is not playing any better than him on that position.

vinicius - i wish he gets the time needed to grow to the potential we know. preferably, let him go on loan to a spanish la liga team were he will play every single game from january to june.. so we will know what to do with him from next season. playing in cstilla is no good for him, he has passed that level of football.

As for our defence

Varane is not a leader in the back. very average with physical presence. he has lost that tactical edge he had over Pepe and Ramos. He often doesn't think anymore. Barely observe his space and man to man marking in set piece especially. he was really good at all this 3-4 yrs back; whatever happened. i really don't know.

Marcelo - he has been over compensating, trying to defend more now than attack, maybe age and injury, might be cos he doesn't have that opportunity to attack cos of Ronaldo's absense; When CR7 was on the pitch he had about 3 players always watching him and not trying to attack, marcelo will often go forward freely. but now we lack that presence, he can't.. too bad.

and finally, we really need james rodriguez back now, we should have gotten him back at june/july.... our attack is desperately in need of assistance and we have to exploit all our options before splashing big in summer
+1
Hahaha yesterday I called it, Barcelona 5 - 0 Levante.

You know what’s interesting, i watched until halftime, it wasn’t that Barcelona was playing better football than Levante, they just had more effective strikers in Messi and Suarez. Otherwise Levante actually played good football. It really shows the difference between Barcelona’s effective attack taking the pressure off of their defense, and Real’s current attackers who keep failing to score and our defense suffering as the pressure keeps piling up.

Solari better be using the break to figure this offense situation out, or we aren’t going to win anything this season.

Oh and I agree with you for the most part. I just don’t think James is our answer.
So it seems we are getting Brahim Diaz. He is 19, with lots of potential. But very unproven. It’s the story of Real’s new signings.
This is the first time that as a Real supporter, I feel hopeless for the team. I don’t know if the team will ever get back to winning ways for a long time. They are getting used to losing. They have no answers, and they don’t seem to be able to fix the problems.

I’m hoping that their long term solutions are setting them up for another successful era in the not too distant future.
+2
Entire team is made of garbage. And supposedly Bale is supposed to be our new CR7. Ha! Pathetic performance.

Can't wait till next season starts because we're not winning anything this season, that's for sure.
+2
Don’t think next season will be any better. The backbone of the team is aging and we haven’t been able to replace them properly.
+1
Lol worst loss at home in Europe in history of Real. We are on our way.

My take on players:
- Benzema is worthless, we would be stronger if we played a rabbit in his place,
- Isco is way too slow,
- Valejo is a horrible and irresponsible defender who plays to save face, the rest of that young defensive line up lacks a leader type character.
- Asensio is not a star player because his game might be great in some aspects but is severely lacking in other aspects making it a flawed type of player.

My take on the team:
- the team lacks direction
- there are serious weaknesses to style of play
- players play simply to keep the ball away from opposition but with no plan/clear direction of what they need to do with it.
- they haven’t scored a single goal from a set piece, corner or otherwise. No one even jumps for a header so I don’t know what is the purpose of crossing if scoring from a cross is not achievable.
- we labor to move forward because we don’t have players who can move past opposition with their momentum or dribbling, or shoot if given too much room (which would open up passing lanes) all the defense needs to do to stop Real is stand in formation and wait for Real players to be unsuccessful at penetrating, then eventually take the ball from them and score on Real.
- there is a serious problem with passing the ball into the correct spot. Almost all passes are off target, forcing the receiving player to adjust.
- there is no teeth to the offense because none of the would-be superstars has an eye for goal.

You guys need an overhaul. How many seasons has it been since you guys signed a world class player?

Madrid needs a striker, a winger, a midfielder, and a CB or two.
+1
I agree. But It’s not that Real hasn’t been trying. With the Premier League teams receiving 2billion pounds each from the television deal and the oil money pouring into football, none of them wants/needs to sell a star player, especially not to Real it seems because Real gets outlandish quotes whenever they pursue a player. They have quoted Hazard, a 28 year old, for 170 million pounds even though there is only a year left on his contract and he isn’t signing a new deal with them. This has forced Real to pursue young unproven talent around the world to try and find the players before the PL gets its hands on them. Once they go to PL or Paris, they become unattainable I think.

Ps: And yes it’s been years since they got any world class player. Accept Courtois to be fair.
+1
I think it will definitely be Hazard's last year. He will probably force a move next summer and I see him going for around 100-120 mil. Madrid also need to get Kane if they wanna stay competitive. He might cost 200 mil but he will surely score 30-50 goals a season.

Like you said, the backbone of the team is aging. Modric is getting old, Ramos is unreliable, Marcelo looks like he had 0 motivation. Sell Bale, Benz and maybe even Isco and you have more than enough funds to get anybody in the world.
Hopefully Hazard is worth an arm and a leg. At 28 I don’t know, he has two years before he joins the rest of our aging squad. Kane? I doubt it. As to selling, Benz... not sure what happened to that guy, I feel like his demise started after those criminal charges began (the appeal of which is still on going), but he is just not worth keeping, and Bale, it depends how much he is being paid. If he is paid as if he is carrying this team, then he should be sold immediately.
If you are expecting someone to score lots of goals like CR7, Hazard is not the one. But he can easily create tons of chances and take away 2-3 defenders to free others. If you have a decent striker, he will get lots of chances. I feel he will be at top for at least 4 yrs in La Liga. In PL, he is being fouled very often. He is slowly feeling the pain.

I agree with SanchezAlexis that Madrid needs an overhaul. I dont know how Benzema is still playing. Kane will definitely get you goals. But I doubt you will get him easily since he signed a new deal recently and he doesnt have a release clause. I could see him become most expensive player if deal goes through.
It would be easier to get Icardi from Inter instead.

What's going on with Mariano btw?
Mariano is playing really bad. He is selfish and just puts the blinders on when he has the ball. But to be fair he hasn’t had many chances to play which means his confidence is under attack and he feels he has to prove himself.

@Nvj
As I was saying one of Real’s problems is that we don’t have anyone in our midfield that can pose a goal threat, which means the center is never an option for us. This puts the sides at a disadvantage because defense knows we can’t penetrate from the center. Maybe Hazard is the answer to that problem. Isco certainly is not because while he can maintain ball like no other and dribble anyone to keep position, he has zero penetration ability.
+1
They should put Crysto in the line up and see if he can take benz’s spot.
That was painful to watch. They couldn’t string a few good passes together? What was that?? I can’t believe we walked out with the points. It was like some of the players were playing for themselves. Benz was completely missing the whole game. If he wasn’t in the field it wouldn’t have mattered. Bale was the only one who did anything at all. What was going on with them?
seems like the high winds really affected their passing and honestly all of them echoed the same sentiment from coach to gk. Yes painful as it looked like we really struggled today. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt but I seriously think it's high time we move on full speed away from Benzema as our starting #9.
Time for Cristo? He looks really promising. Im not sure why he has not been utilized yet. We have nobody else to take his place. But honestly that game looked weired. I refrained from writting this in my first comment but at times it looked like some Real players were delibrately not playing good. /:

Important thing is that we got the 3 points and closed the gap.
