Khedira out for 4-6 weeks. ‘Illaramendi show’ it is then
Illara isn't starting matches any time soon.

Okay real fan. Btw this photo is of last year. Madrid were going for him but decided to keep Fabio C. Siqueira actually was happy to receive offer from madrid

Man, I'm loving the Chicharito signing more and more every day! The last time I was this excited about a signing is when we signed Ronaldo and Kaka :O
+6
He's not better than the LINK MAN! I beat you to it. lol
+1
It's 'link mannnn' lol.
+1
In linking that's left to be seen, but afterall he wasn't brought to Madrid to be another Benzema. He was brought to help our fwrd line score goals and be another foil if Benz has his usual off day!!!
It just got worse. Sami Khedira injured on Germany duty. Hope its not serious.
An MRI scan revealed the 27-year-old had suffered a tear to his left thigh. Leading German tabloid Bild suggests he is likely to be out for around six weeks, although the DFB made no suggestion as to the prognosis.
Wow from bad to worse!!
+5
Damn international football
You now understand how we feel. Personally I'd say screw the friendlies, we don't need it.
Net spendings this transfer window:

Manchester United - 152mil

Barcelona - 78mil

Liverpool - 58mil

Atletico Madrid - 24mil

Real Madrid - 8mil

Well we balanced our check books nicely.
+9
Perez's ways of doing business is admirable and our board can learn a thing or two from him.

We haven't done too bad in terms of addressing some of our issues.

Also, I think Atletico have probably had the best transfer window this year in terms of selling for big money and using that money to strengthen their squad even more.

Have you ever tough that Di Maria and Alonso both wanted to leave? Madrid is not going to beg them to stay. James is a classic Perez buy,there was no need for him,but he still got him,and we're yet to see what will he offer in the future. Kroos on the other hand,could as well turn out to be the best transfer of this season,especially for the price we got him.

Did United need Di maria and Falcao? No,both are panic buys.The fans demanded signings so United got 2 of the best,unfortunately non of those two plays in positions you need fixed. They will both be great for you,most probably,but still they were not needed in United. After we bought James, I remember reading on Uniteds page people mocking Madrid for spending so much on players and how United could never do such a thing. I wonder what they think now,after almost 200M spent in one transfer window.
we have lost 12 players and none of them went for more than 16 million (welbeck). most retired or left on a free. those players were replaced so the net spend would obviously be pants. in fact utd have only ever sold 7 players for more than 10 million pound. many of them were to madrid actually (RvN, beckham, ronaldo).

and i don't think you guys did well in the market, even ronaldo hinted to that in his most recent interview with marca. imo you didn't need james, while di maria's pace from central midfield will be missed. alonso has left, which is odd since he's arguably oyur best DM and he wasn't replaced (Kroos is a CAM/CM as evidenced by his performances for Germany at the world cup). your best business was easily chicharito on loan imo as he fills a need (striker depth). you failed to reinforce that leaky defense and lost solidarity in defensive midfield and i think you guys may suffer for it. changes of injury go up after post WC or euro summers and you will have more games due to club world cup. recipe for disaster

edit: it's clear di maria would have stayed if he got the pay raise he deserved. strange madrid wanted to sell for 85 million euro but didn't think he was worth 7-8 million euro or whatever he was asking for in wages.

also about alonso, he was being shoved onto the bench due to more necessary signings. i think if he was still first choice he could turn down bayern.
+1
Just for the record, there is a misconception that united hasn't spent money in recent years. Apart from the crazy spending from this transfer season united has made a NET spend of around €200m since Ronaldo left 5 years ago. If you put together this seasons spending, united has made a net spend on around €350-375m in the last 5 years. I recently had this conversation with my friend from Manchester who is a die hard united fan. He was under the impression that united is struggling because the Glazers haven't spent any money on players. The fact is united has spent money on crap players or players that aren't performing consistently.

Madrid has done really well financially in this transfer season as well as the last one. I'm not too sure about letting go of the players they did or the ones they got but that's a question that will be answered in the next 6-8 months. However, madrid is making money off the players they bought in the past five years. Whenever a club goes on a spending spree like madrid did after perez came on buying quality players almost every transfer season, you will eventually find the winning combination after which you can sell the rest. Madrid has done exactly that and thanks to Perez' superior business acumen, made good money on their investment.
lol did we need di maria?

YES, our CM and winger spots are s**t. we overpaid because we were in a tough spot but doesnt mean we dont need him. after defense, midfield is the next greatest need and di maria can play CM or winger for us. very astute signing imo. next summer there may be more defenders on the market but no wingers the caliber of di maria (i assume everyone will be going for reus, which means we are likely to miss out).

@franky, no question we have bought junk squad players to replace the class of scholes giggs ronaldo in attacking midfield and just have ignored defenders and central midfield all together except for panic buy in fellaini until this window. utd dont sell players for high money, but it's true we have overpaid recently and have bought too many junk players. we have not been good in the market in general, but i stand by my opinion that real madrid did not do great business in this summer window and it may be a while before they can win the league if they keep chopping and changing the wrong parts. they have quality to beat anyone on the day but i don't think their depth is currently sufficient for a season long continuous effort like la liga due to poor depth in defense and defensive midfield.

Madrid dosnt have a DM in their squad. with only illara as an option.

i think its a make or break for illara now. but it have noticed many of you dont trust him. ancelloti doesnt seem to either.
i think selling xabi was a mistake or atleast not buying a new one.
but in kroos. madrid might still find that "balance".

(ps: khedira is certainly no DM)
lol neither is kroos
+1
I have no idea why Illarramendi isn't on the pitch every match. There must be some behind the scenes for Ancelotti.

Alonso has started to look like the Joe Hart of DMs the past year. Not very good. It's over for him in La Liga.
+6
Mt,

You do have a lot of funny ideas when it comes to football don't you. Xabi Alonso, instrumental in last years CL winning side, not very good. Ancelotti must've fielded him constantly since he came back from injury because he likes Xabis luscious, luscious beard.
+4
Watch the videos of Ancelotti when he was a player,he was basically the same player as Alonso.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1rTHB1RBzk
Yeah. I'm not sure what mt is talking about. Madrid started slow last year and picked up form when cr7 was going crazy with his goal scoring and Alonso plugged the gap at the back. Alonso had a bad WC just like every other Spanish player. With Alonso holding well, modric was free to do his thing. Alonso might be on his way to retirement but last season he was very good.

I am tired of watching Isco just dribble and hold the ball to long and lose it instead of passing it back.

really? Seems like the rest of the team isn't considering most of the balls went his way.
+3
It wasnt meant to disparage Isco he has his strengths and weaknesses as well, thats why he is not a sure starter most games, he does tend to hold the ball well but then loses it quite alot because he always wants to take on that last man.
Sorry to say but time to buy another LB and sell Marcelo, he's really really poor when it come to his defensive duties. He constantly leaves his side open as the 2nd goal from Sociedad came from him not tracking the attacker and allowing the cross to tie it up or it was the one to go ahead not sure. Hate it when Coentrao's out injured, we look so much better defensively when Coentrao starts.
lol. give ancelloti a break.

marcelo has a key role in madrid.
