Glad CR7 was able to feel what everyone else bar him who's never subbed does. If he's so upset, what he should do is to remind people of who he is on the pitch vs BVB. Be a team player and look to score when you can and help defend and others to score as well.

That's how you respond to being subbed with 20 MINS TO GO!!!
I'm sorry but I'm tired of Verane giving goals away. He has done it 2 times in 2 games. He does this thing where he heads or taps the balls out right in front of our goal, setting opponents up to basically take penalty kicks on our goal. They gotta work on him, he is terrible, I don't care how fast he is, its not worth it.

More importantly, I really don't think Real is playing the way a team of their caliper should be playing. They can't keep possession, and their goals are all, literally ALL of them come from either
1) set pieces OR
2) situations where someone converts possession inside the other team's half.

This is significant because it shows that the team can't actually score as a team, they can only rely on mistakes by opponents, or set pieces. That means they don't have a plan, or that they are not synced, or worst, that there are divisions within the team where players want to either score themselves or miss the opportunity to make sure others don't get a chance to shine.

Furthermore, I feel like there might be problems between the players, or the between the players and the management, in that our players seem to want to win, but they don't want to win solidly. Its almost like they push to get ahead by a goal, then they back off and once they get scored on and its 10 minutes left on the clock, they start to play better. Am I the only one who feels this way??

I'll say, very good observation. I don't think your players don't want to win "solidly". Cr7 and bale will always want to score goals. I think it's Zidane's lack of creativity and strategic flexibility that's making madrid one dimensional. His decisions in response to the game are very predictable. I've yet to see him try out different formations during the game. His core team depends on Casemiro cleaning up. I might be wrong but without him, I don't think Zidane has a plan B.
CR7's such a Bitch!!!! So much so that his mother has to tell this 31yr old not to hang your head and stop sulking. Are you fackn kidding me??? This is a 3 time Ballon D'Or winner that knows full well the ups and downs of his profession. If he by now can't accept that when even HIM is offering 0 to the team he should sit da faq down. Who're you that you can't be subbed? You put lot's of pressure on yourself to be the best but honestly your play most times suggests that you prefer others to do their best to help YOU.

On to more important matters, this team SUCKS BALLS big time. One player out can't defend, another player out you can't string 2 passes together, gk out can't stop a simple 1v1 on the byline. My god and we really expect to win the league, cdr and UCL...........LOLZ. What the hell is Zidane really doing? You see that without Casemiro this team is so defensively depleted and the only other player is Kova that should be playing that role with his pace and combative nature from Serie A. Midfield until Case returns should be Kova, kroos and mods with ZZ subbing either mods or kroos but Kova must start each game.

Makes absolutely 0 sense talking about style with Case and don't play the closest type in Kova. How do you really expect to maintain a style or dynamic when you keep faqn up the system with all these crap rotations that makes absolutely no sense.

4 strikers vs LAS PALMAS!!!! FOUR. -> Real Madrid, seriously Zidane?

I love Zidane for having the balls to bench Cristiano like that. This shows that no one is untouchable on his rotation policy. I know Cristiano is a big mamas boy but that tweet from his mom was just plain embarrassing. Something is off with Cristiano's form and it is affecting the team.

Defense? Terrible. Carvajal and Varane - the known consistent defenders we have are just a big letdown lately.

We have a big game this coming champions league. Zidane has been experimenting with the lineups, I hope this next one won't fail him
verane has never been consistent. If anything he has been consistent in giving balls away and setting opponents up for shots on goal from inside the box.

playing dream footy for many years now,Ronaldo is the best player in the world, But i have to let him go,,its killing me;-(

Typical Real Madrid.

Are any of us surprised? I don't care about the performances, about who plays, who sits or who if forced out of position. All i care is that we win. We were doing that with inconsistent performances and I was fine with that.

But even when the style and manager changes, one thing remains the same.... This team, more often than not, chokes under pressure.

The typical back to back drop of points. The typical one game we SHOULD HAVE won... The typical average opponent away game we can't win.... im not even gonna get into it cause its an every season thing.... just gonna leave you all with this.

lol you guys really spoiled..

To be fair, Las Palmas isn't a bad team. They're organized, methodical and play possession football. Madrid tried to press them like they do usually to get the ball but LP aren't afraid to pass the ball all the way back to the gk and switch wings. They were also okay with holding the ball in defense for long periods of time. They did the exact same thing with barca last year and we struggled against them.

That being said I think Zidane is out of ideas. Casemiro's absence destabilizes madrid by exposing the defense. However the bigger issue I see Zidane's inability to use creative attackers like James and Isco. Madrid is designed to go wide to cr7 and bale. That leaves players very little option other than crossing the ball in. LP had their wing backs pulled back all game. Their midfield also double teamed every time bale or cr7 got the ball. That's when you need a creative midfielder like james to step up and run through gaps in the middle. Zidane used asensio because I think he wanted to keep james fresh for ucl game. But Zidane's management has fundamental problems with lack of flexibility. When he took over last year the league was almost lost so there was no expectations. So when he capped off the tail end of the league with relatively easier ucl rounds, nobody complained like they did vs Benitez. I was surprised that Zidane held on to both isco and James because he has no intention of actually using them in their strong positions. Now with the transfer ban, Zidane can't buy or sell in Jan. I want to see what Zidane does vs Dortmund, a team that will stretch your defense wide in all areas of the field.
You won't get an easy ride in CL again this season, so you won't win that. Need to be more efficient in the league ye

JohnSnow, just stop with the clear trolling. Another post like that and the discussion is over.

Ronaldo did not look too pleased to be subbed off.

Glad Zizou has the sense and audacity to sub him off when he's not preforming. No special privileges for under-performers.

With that said, not a very convincing performance. Casemiro is clearly missed.
Again a very lame display...defense not focused enough,midfielder without creativity and attackers not doing their job. Right now we should all be nervous for the away match vs Dortmund. Not to mention we never win there...

Whatever the case is with Ronaldo,we need him fit and firing now. Bale needs to stop being so selfish and play like he did the first season. Casemiro is already missed big time.
Missing Casemiro big time. You can see what Casemiro did for Madrid.
Can't hold a damn lead.
Slim you jinxed it by saying no Casemiro in the team, there you go another 2 points lost.
