Falcao!!!!
+1
Man, falcao?

Well I will definitely take him over our current no'9 but the striker i'm loving now is jovetic
I would not mind Falcao at all,he's still a great striker,and he looks fine right now,scoring in every game he plays for Monaco. But i wouldn't mind Jovetic or any other good/decent striker right now.

The main issue I have with our CBs Pepe and Ramos for 2 hard-nosed players their play is that of School-boys at times. If they put more effort into to being intimidating in their tackling and reading of the game then they wouldn't be exhibiting all the antics we sometimes see from them both. Nesta,Stam,Vidic,Ferdinand,Maldini,Baresi and some others are a few that did their talking on the pitch and were seen as legends as CBs. What Pepe and Ramos need to do is to watch some old footage and see how to conduct themselves in pressure situations home and away. Whenever you look at ramos or pepe's pic advertising our kits these guys look intimidating especially Ramos but when we watch them on the field it's something totally different.

What I would love for Carlo to do is to put both Nacho and Varane together in a hostile venue in la liga and allow the seniors to see how to conduct themselves on the pitch. What we will always get from these two youngsters in determination and grit and a lack of YELLOW CARDS OR REDS, and they get the job done without all the spitting,stomping,slapping,punching, elbowing and the like.
+1
Ozil bought for 15m - sold for 45m

Higuain bought for 13m - sold for 37m

Robinho bought for 23m - sold for 42m

Di Maria bough for 25m - sold for 84m

Morata sold for 22m

Some nice deals we managed to get in the end.
+4
Perez seems to outshine himself every year. I wonder who will be the next record breaking sale?
Nice job to cover for these :P no sarcasm intended
Kaká 65M
Robben 36M
Isco 30M
Illarramendi 30M
Coentrao 30M
Sneijder 27M
+4
Kroos and Varane
+1
why would we need to cover up for Coentrao and Isco? They have been excellent signings IMO...
+1
and illara still has a lot of room for improvement..
Kaka was a bargain.
Robben and Sneijder weren't Perez signings. They were sold for 25m and 15m respectively so they weren't huge loses. Isco, illarra and Fabio are still in the squad so time will tell.

Only kaka was the outright disaster from that list.
+3
You can go ahead and take isco and coentrao off the list, and in 5 months take illaramendi off


Also worthy of note: bale's price tag has not been brought up in a looong while.

Obviously because he delivered but nice to see the haters go back to the woodwork. He did cost alot but ill take la decima and copa for the price
+1
Correction higuain was sold for 40m

I was also thinking thesame; perez hasn't really flopped in transfer business though. He sells for a decent profit.. asides kaka whom he practically had to let go, others have been good business nonetheless
+1
Robinho sold for 42m. I'm going to read that and reread that until it sinks in.
+1
From what I've read so far after our pre-season and SuperCopa and first league outing what I've noticed is that Madrid at times take too long for that "shot" and it makes the game from our end seem predictable and "dead". Yes ADM had this ability to amp up the pace but still it's still at the point that if CR7 or Bale isn't the one taking that chance then no-one else does. Going forward yes James and Kroos will need time to adapt to our style and I honestly hope that with both Isco and James that Carlo sees that this 4-3-3 really isn't playing into the strengths of personnel that Madrid has. Right now I think Isco should start before James giving him time to adapt and from what I've seen so far from Isco we will benefit from his ability and James as well.
+1
said it a while back that at the moment isco runs circles around james. and the response i got back was that i needed to stop talking s**t about james....lawl.
Ourbench is kinda boring looking at now..

In the past, the cameras always gave the bench alot more tv time when kaka was present but now nothing; illarramendi is not even doing a good job getting the bench some tv time upon his price tag :-)
+1
Aren't you glad?? Why show a bench with players who many believe should be on the pitch, when a team can only field 11. How many times do the cameras show Barca's bench when they're playing? When the cameras showed iker,kaka,ozil,pep,higuain,isco all that was doing is showing the issues that were within the players and management of the team. It never ever suggested how deep our squad was but the opposite if it wasn't who should be the gk, it was who should be the #10, striker, preferred cb etc. So I am glad the cameras DON'T show our bench as much as before.
Jese ain't boring mate. A badass haircut is coming soon, watchout!
+1
Well Di Maria is officially gone. £59.7mil

Di Maria: Today I have to go, but I want to make clear that it has never been my desire to leave Real Madrid.

I give a s**t what the media says, I beleive Di Maria. He was forced out.
+2
I just don't get why would real let go of him, Unbelievable player , He did not deserve to be on the bench
+1
If he was forced out than that is the biggest mistake Florentino ever made. I wish him luck in United,and most of all,I hope they will not play him on the wing.
+1
Yeah they forced him out... they forced him out in the sense that they didn't want to kiss his feet and double his salary. Carlo wanted him he had his best season under Carlo but he wanted more cash after he just got a new deal extended to 2018 not to long ago. He wanted to be treated and payed like he was the second best player on this team after CR7. That wasn't going to happen, sorry Di Maria. Now you're the man at MANU wearing the number 7. Have fun I guess.
+8
Di Maria was a hit or miss for me. I think he is a great player and is a proven monster at times but then again, at times his selfishness has lost us games. I believe his best feature besides his pace was his willingness to track back and defend (which is what I think Real will miss the most) but £59.7, good job Perez!

I rate Kroos over Di Maria any day of the week, and he was 1/3 of the cost! Why wouldn't Madrid offload Di Maria? We are well covered with Bale, Isco, James, not to mention Jese won't be injured for ever.

I wish all the best for Di Maria, especially for what he did in the later part of last season! It always hurts to lose a great (last season Ozil) But clearly this is a panic buy from Man U and Perez mopped the floor with them!
+4
This sucks all around
I would have done the same if I were in Di Maria's shoes. Damn, it is best for both parties so I don't believe for one that he was forced out! Even ManU benefits greatly from this signing so everyone should be happy.

The MOTM who delivered La Decima surely deserves that top money. On top of that, Di Maria is a hard worker and highly skilled player. Di Maria earned his valuation and he rightly deserves so.

Well at least, Argentinos sure know how to say goodbye and respect the fans. Cheers ADM
+1
@Evexo that's wishful thinking there but luckily our manager is not Moyes anymore. No one is dumb enough to play him wide after watching that game. Hehe
@Hans you mention ADM's "best feature besides his pace was his willingness to track back and defend" but then you said he can be replaced by Kroos, Bale, Isco or James, none of whom is known for their defensive contribution. Am I missing smth here?

As for us we thank Perez wholeheartedly for ADM, whatever the cost, because his best features are exactly what we lack in our midfield right now :D
+2
he can go cross the ball to nobody now at manU
@Alirezafcb

when was Di Maria ever on the bench?
+1
@drde159 I said that is the feature Real will miss the most... ADM is an attacking midfielder hence the reason for mentioning Bale, & James. Isco does track back and is better on/off the ball.

If you followed ADM you would agree with me but you probably just watched YouTube highlights and joined the rest of the sheep that actually think ADM is worth more than Ozil or Kroos.

There's no doubt ADM will enhance the Man U squad but if you're expecting a CR7 difference you're going to be very disappointed. In my opinion Khedira would improve Man U more than ADM will.
Just remembered Barça are paying €2m to Neymar Sr's scouting company, N & N. Don't know whether he helped us in finding Douglas or not.

i dont know if madrid is somehow involved in barca board f*****g up this bad but you guys must be very happy. knowing how bad a board of such a big organization can be.
+2
madrid's third has to be the coolest third kit in a while. the dragon represents power and glory of the club - said by the kit maker.
good result for real madrid 3pts are important beginning of the season . I am pretty sure the team will get stronger now they just tired and not physically ready.
+4
And Atletico draw against Rayo. They had no creativity in attack at all,just like I predicted a few pages back. They will be hell with their defending against bigger clubs,and they will struggle when they have to control possession and create chances against smaller teams.
+1
Sounds like Chelsea last season lol.

But it's weird for them to have creativity problems with Koke, Griezmann and Mandzukic up front. Probably just need the 2 (3 if you count Jimenez) new players to settle and gel with the rest of the team.
