So why does Madrid have a day less to prepare for El Clasico? So we can have an extra day to prepare the Copa del rey match versus 3rd division Cornella next Wednesday.

That makes sense.
We seriously can't let Messi score tomorrow...
if he does score one he will equal the record not beeat it right?
As long as we win I couldn't care less if Messi scores or not :)
+1
he will beat it by scoring a hat-trick ;)
+1
Even if Messi can't score, he can assist too. I'm more concerned of Iniesta rather than Messi or Neymar. Last time, he exposed Carvajal big time. Here's hoping to avoid that tomorrow, at least.
+2
Like I always said... despite my hatred for Barcelona, iniesta is the best midfielder I have seen after zidane.. at least during d last 7 yrs. He has that thing about him and his presence in the midfield..

But notwithstanding, I am quite scared of the unknown, Suarez... he is too much to be a wild card.

But what worries me most is bale's absence.. idk how it will work, but I sure hope we woop barca's ass..
Like always, people is under estimating Neymar. Forget Messi and Iniesta, Neymar is who we need to watch out for...

what a beauty

Recent developments all indicate that Ramos and Pepe will start tomorrow. Ramos has supposedly recovered completely and Pepe is back to full speed.

Am I the only one who thinks Varane sould start in Clasico before Pepe and Ramos? Actually Ramos should be the third,last,option to start,judging from current form. I really don't want to watch Ramos play in midfield the whole game,while leaving Pepe alone to cover the whole defense. Never did i see a defender play better aginst Barca,and especially Messi, then Varane. I never tought i say this,and I really don't want anything bad for him,but im hopping that Ramos will not be fit to start.
+1
You have millions of fellow believers who also share the same thought. Varane should be automatic!!
+1
Against Barcelona what will surely be needed is calm and pace in defense and neither Ramos or Pepe has that over Varane. Against the likes of Messi,Neymar and Suarez we will get exposed if Carlo plays R & P at the back.
varane will play... but not start.

i actually will prefer a pepe and varane partnership, but ramos missing el classico while fit will; the newspapers and media will start with the whole politics and rumours..

either way, the biggest absentee will be Bale, his pace, strength and abilities will be missed greatly.. no one can cover that position properly like he does
When Carlo was asked about Pepe & Ramos:

"Which centre-backs will you field against Barça?

Pepe is recovering from a knock. One of them will be Ramos. If Pepe recovers in time, he’ll play."

"Pepe? “He’s in good shape, just like Ramos. He’s recovered from injury and think both may play”."

But look no further, Carlo is being mysterious again saying there will be a surprise in the lineup:

"I like surprises. There may be one in tomorrow’s starting line-up"

Who could it be? Varane? Isco? Bale? or maybe Sami?
Ramos just has a huge name,especially after his heroics in the CL. Looks like no matter how good Varane really is,he'll have to battle Pepe or wait till age caches up with him. If you take away the names,the youngest of our 3 CB is the best.
I honestly dont know what the heck the lineup will be. Khedira or ramos in midfield?

Will we see varane and pepe and ramos in the starting 11? Statistically starting ramos is a bad idea. But he is such a wild card.

It is true we are going to really miss bale. Honestly i think we arent exactly ready for this game.

Injuries absences and a sorted and balanced midfield is what we must overcome to be ready. I have much faith in carlo and our players though and high hopes for tomorrow!

Vamos Madrid
Play Ramos as LB, Marcelo as LW and Ronaldo as ST.

:D
That might work with the way Marcelo has been playing haha. Back line of Ramos varane pepe carvajal James on the right with Modric kroos and Benz up top
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!
+2
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..
+1
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
our supporters were actually excellent in Anfield though... there were times we were the only ones making noise in the stadium
Is it true that only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have scored more goals than Karim Benzema in 2014?
+7
It must not be true.you know he is the link man ;)
+5
if that is not sarcasm (i would except considering ur love for the dude)
...please post a link to prove it. that will be really funny
+1
Hmm so are we counting both league and country? What about friendlies?
The new CR7s Mercurials for the Clasico....very nice cleats.

Freakin Beautiful.. Take my all money!!!!
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
+2
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).
+3
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..
+1
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.
+2
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.

Good to have you back Slim.

Thank you.
