great to see... Despite Cristiano being an ex united player for 6 years, he was applauded by the liverpool supporters when he was being subbed in Anfield

That was really nice of Liverpool fans at that game. The guy is an Ex United player, scored a goal against them and they applauded him. So much Respect!
I have to say I was abit touched the way the Liverpool fans at Anfield behaved.

Giving ovations to the Real Madrid players as they're being subbed off. Staying til the end then giving they're own team an ovation even after a 0-3.

We have to admit at the Bernabeu we're abit behind them in them in that regard.
Anfield is always classy and terrific..
Ronaldo is different..It's like when Old trafford cheered for Ronaldo de lima. Even the Emirates wouldn't dare boo whim when his being subbed off..in fact they would celebrate the relief of him not completing the full 90
Is it true that only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have scored more goals than Karim Benzema in 2014?
+4
It must not be true.you know he is the link man ;)
The new CR7s Mercurials for the Clasico....very nice cleats.

Stopping/Pausing a match to pay tribute to any active player’s record would easily be top-5 stupidest things ever witnessed in ESP football.
Wait what ? More info ?
Is this about Messi possibly breaking the record of goals scored in Spain?
I dont understand. I also feel like you confuse which forum to post things in. Like half the time your posts belong in barcas forum the other half here.

But i can agree that pausing a match for almost any reason other than the clearly acceptable ones, is silly.

Celebration of anything is generally and logically reserved for after a competition has ended.
That's what I initially tought but that would still be crazy right, especially knowing the game and it's value to both clubs, it's a great feet, and Messi should get his ceremony but not during the game right ?

Nice seeing you around Jeroen long time no see, wanted to congratulate you about the belgium national team's recent results sure you where partying with all the other folks in the streets, even I was haha.
Dhockey, you need to reply to my previous comment (check page 2/3 of this forum). Reply on my wall, no need to bother people here.
how is this not concerning real madrid since they might be the ones to do it?
tanmay what do you want me to reply to. idk where that chat is
Check your wall

Hmm it would be stupid to pause the match. Say it's 80th minute and the score and Messi I scores to make it 1-0 for Barca, would it be really wise to stop the match? I'm pretty sure they won't do it, if anything they will probably give him a round of applaus at the end of the game should he break the record.
Dhockey brings up a good topic for discussion.

I would like to know where talk of this 'homage' first originated. It seems a rather bizarre and unorthodox thing to do considering the context of the situation.

Lionel Messi, an infamous symbol of Barcelona in the eyes of the Santiago Bernabeu, being paid homage in said venue during a Clasico in front of 80,000+ Madridista's? Not to mention there was talk of actually stopping the match in order to pay tribute?

Upon further contemplation, I feel this may seem rather embarrassing for Messi. Does the league think the Madridista's will applaud Messi for his accomplishment under heated and intense circumstances? Should Messi receive tribute for his accomplishment in the midst of a searing and deafening plethora of jeers and whistles?

People need to stop and put things into perspective. I really don't think this rumour has any truth to it, but there are times when Messi is made out to be a god of some sort.

It would be more appropriate for Messi, his fans (including the Cule population), if he were to receive tribute at the Camp Mou (provided he breaks the record by his next match there).
+2
lol thats gotta be nonsense... plus.. Messi's teammates would have to clap real loud cause the rest of the Bernabeu obviously wouldn't bother applaud him...
Utter nonsense.I don't know why dhockey borough up this discussion when he clearly doesn't have proper source.Anyway Spanish fa not considering any kind of applaud thing during game time.

The Spanish Football Association (RFEF) has announced that they are not planning a special tribute for Lionel Messi in case he breaks the La Liga all-time scoring record against Real Madrid.
Messi is only one goal short of Telmo Zarra’s record with 251 goals and could reach the milestone in the El Clasico at the Bernabeu on Saturday.
It was suggested that Messi would receive a special tribute if he breaks the record, but it seems the REFE hasn't planned anything.
"We haven't even considered it,” a RFEF spokesperson as quoted by Marca.
"No one has approached us about anything. We haven't received any requests from Barcelona. We know that the idea has been mooted in the press, but we aren't considering staging anything.
"I don't even know if it's within the rules. It's something that's never come up before..
So I'm the guy who suggested we invade your forum after we beat you. Trust me I'm not childish, it was just some banter.

Congratulations on a outstanding performance, Well done.

I will always be the first to say well done, I don't hide like some people in this sorry world.

Awesome football.
+8
Lost your confidence much? Yeah, yeah really nice of you not running away and all that crap, but it doesn't change what you actually did, maybe we should invade your forum when we win like 5-0 at the bernabeu ?
+2
This seems unneccessary, play nice. He congratulated your team.
+6
I do play nice, don't playing nice would have been bashing him for what he did, but saying sorry afterwards doesn't neceserly change what you did before, nevertheless no hard feelings just a madridista standing up for his team :P

Ps: I won't invade the pool forum, looking at how dead our own forum is, if I have to wright somewhere it will be here, we need it more than they do haha =P
+1
I think Rainmaker took your point, but while I hate defending Liverpool fans, he admitted he is wrong on 50%. Other 50% did not happen. You dont see the guys like him apologize much so it is rare, and good for sportsmanship after all in the end of the day: banter was not started, even the thought was given, which of course Is a bit painful, and nobody wants this hate to happen.
+2
Wrong on 50 % ? Isn't he the one who suggested what he did ? And if the other 50% didn't happen isn't it just because they got trashed at home so no point in doing what he wanted to do ? Like i already said nice of him not running away, and actually saying we played good, really manly of him, but that doesn't change anything and once you say things like that you have to expect it to blow in your face at some point if things don't go as planned, anyway it's just payback, nothing personal :)
Very well.
+2
All this has reminded me of braveheart..Ronaldo is like Mel Gibson. He heard the British we're coming and led his team into battle
Ronaldo is better than Mel Gibson, he didn't wait for the british to come on his land, he went on british soil to conquer it, THE CONQUEROR, EL REY CR7 :D
+2
@ Chelo, you make no sense what so ever. I really don't think any Liverpool fan would have invaded this forum even if we did beat you. Most of us have loads of respect for your club, they are worthy European Champs. Like Zilch said " He congratulated your team " you make it out like this was going to be all out war, please mate it's a bloody Footy Forum, there are more important things in the world. Trust me mate I take nothing personal on this footytube- it's just a bunch of dudes spewing off on some footy games- that's all it is at the end of the day.

How the hell did Mel Gibson come up? LOL.

Is swapping a shirt at half time really that big of a deal?

Especially when it was Pepe that wanted the shirt of the infamous super Mario.
+1
Good to have you back Slim.
+3
Thank you.

I'm pleased with our performance at Anfield. Glad to see Khedira get some minutes. However I can't help but think Carlo should have rested our midfield guys by subbing them off earlier. Kroos, Modric and James needed the rest for El Clasico.
The English media and some liverpool fans are butchering Balotelli because he exhanged his shirt at half time with Pepe (pepe was the one who asked for balo's shirt)

https://vine.co/v/OhW90rBz5l7


i don't get it... whats the big deal?
+3
Scapegoating Balotelli is everyone's favourite pastime in England. He hasn't been playing well, but Liverpool was done the moment Suarez left.
+2
I also don't get what wrong with exchanging shirts on half time.poor guy,never been gone back to England..
Well someone needs to be blamed... it isn't going to be the coach he is a englishman, it isn't going to be their awful defense it's been there for quite some time now, guess who's the easy target ? They love to hate him, but why always him :(
+2
That's Pepe -___-

I agree they're using him as a scapegoat similarly to how Arsenal are using Ozil as a scapegoat. But I think he'll be able to improve his form. I think Balotelli is a class player. Just a bit of a hot-head at times.
Sure deep down super Mario loves the extra attention
+2
^ my bad lol

they saying its disrespectful or something... its not like madrid and liveprool have any sort of history against one another.. plus...
plus... ur losing 0-3 at home in a CL night... shirts exchanged at half time should be the last of their worries
No worries. I can see how one would confuse them
It's not disrespectful it's actually showing respect for other players... what do u even expect playing against Real Madrid... the MEDIA are simply skinny dude word warriors. finding every way to create attention, not really knowing what it means to be a competitor, a sports person in the field of football... so easy to scapegoat Balotelli..

dw Balotelli has gone through heaps more s**t in the past this is nothing.
Shirt swapping is not really a big deal.Its all media bullshit. Even though we are s**t, every single Liverpool gave his 100% except Balotelli.I don't care if we lose as long as our players give their 100% and Balotelli didn't. He deserves all the bashing he is getting.You should see him play for us in EPL then you will know wtf we are talking about.

I agree that our defense is s**t.Even QPR would have scored 4-5 goals against us if they had decent players let alone Madrid lol.
I guess you all know my stand on Benzema,but tonight he was great. If he could play like this consistently I would be his number 1 fan. At least keep it up for the Clasico lol

Isco was great today,he has the ball control of Messi,but he still doesn't have good decision making. To many times does he hog the ball way to long. If he can learn to pass the ball when he gets past his man, instead of trying to take on another one,we'll have the future Iniesta.

No comments for Ronaldo,this is his 10th consecutive game in witch he scored,and he played very reserved in the second half,just like everybody else. Pepe and Varane are working together really well,I hope this will stay as it is for the Clasico as well. I see Ramos more as a DM than a CB,and we do need a DM right now. good signs all around before Clasico.
La Liga for the WORLD!
