This will be the starting Xi vs united tomorrow:

Casillas, Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Carvajal, Illarramendi, Xabi Alonso, Modric, Bale and Isco.


A nice mixed team. Cristiano wont take part in this one as well,with is a smart decision,no need to push him for a friendly. Also looks like Carlo will experiment as well,this by the players this doesn't look like the usual 4-3-3. More like a 4-4-2 with Bale and Isco up front.Or maybe Carvajal will be a winger,there is talk of that on Marca?

Hope it will be a fun games,it;s the last friendly before the real games start.
i wonder, does iker know he's going to sit the bench another season.
Lopez is leaving
+1
with iker in this condition, any keeper could displace him, even if he is a Madrid legend.
^What condition?
+1
3 bad matches and the whole world thinks Iker isn't good!!!

He saved us so many times last year in both Copa and the CL..
+2
You guys make Moyes look like Van Gaal.

Iker will start.
Navas will HAPPILY play CdR and the occasional league and CL match.

Navas isn't Lopez. He knows his place in the natural order of things.
I don't know who will start and who will leave but IMO Iker isn't in a crisis. He played very well for us last season.
+1
Lol mt1234 , Navas isn't Lopez ? Wait what ? If I remember correctly it was all iker that was causing huge fuss playing 2nd fiddle to Lopez , even when Lopez was in way better form then him ( Lopez first season ) , Lopez could have easily whined about starting CL matches of last season based on his performance of 2nd last season but he remain happy with what he got & if you think that navas will play 2nd to iker even when iker will perform like those 3 disastrous matches then best of luck with that assumption , I'm pretty sure best GK of last season won't be happy warming the bench or just playing the cup games when he had opportunity to join other teams where he could simply walk in goal as their No 1 .

As for iker , he was on superb run before CL final & WC , I would even say that he was better then Lopez but then you have to remember Madrid team which played in CL was playing on whole different level then the one played in laliga

@Malik Lopez helped relegate Villareal. Then abandoned them instead of help bring them back up.
He was a backup at Sevilla. Javi Varas is better as well.

Lopez isn't even better than Adan.
Betis were relegated last year and Adan is staying with the club rather than bring them up.
Sign someone like him up, not the coward who feels he deserves glory yet never accepting responsibility for relegating Villareal.

The circumstances under which Lopez took over are questionable. If he had any conscience he'd endorse Adan at the least.
Casillas was replaced by Lopez due to a broken arm, not issues of quality, no matter how desperate you want Mourinho to be right for once in his life (if Mourinho said it, you should know that the exact opposite is true).

And if you REALLY remembered correctly it was Mourinho that constantly created all the fuss that was discussed.

And if you REALLY knew Madrid under Mourinho AND appreciated players that didn't even open his mouth while being ENDLESSLY and UNFAIRLY criticized by Mourinho, as well as being benched for non-football reasons, then you would heap endless praise on Pepe.
"if you think that navas will play 2nd to iker even when iker will perform like those 3 disastrous matches then best of luck with that assumption , I'm pretty sure best GK of last season won't be happy warming the bench or just playing the cup games when he had opportunity to join other teams where he could simply walk in goal as their No 1."

This is baffling.
You do realize who you are arguing about Navas with?
We're talking about Keylor, not Jesus, correct?

You do realize Navas signed with Bayern just before Madrid came along and asked if he could join Madrid (in order to force Lopez out because Lopez stubbornly and selfishly won't accept a transfer because "Mourinho said I'm the best". Quite a brilliant move by Madrid actually...)?
Can you explain to me WHY Navas would sign with Bayern?

You realize last year was Keylor's FIRST ever playing in the top-flight?
You realize he's been PATIENTLY waiting to start a single match for Levante for 3 years, yet he's going to show up in Madrid on Monday and demand to be the #1 and Iker should start kicking some balls his way instead?

You also realize playing as a goalkeeper for Levante and Costa Rica is NOTHING like playing as a goalkeeper for Madrid???
I'm flattered you think it's the same though.

And you also are familiar with the club he played at for 3 years?
That it's part of the club's philosophy to not sign players like that (we did once, never again...)?
Im sorry Mt,but Lopez was amazing for us,didn't have one bad game in my opinion. I've maybe seen him make 2 or 3 mistakes in all the games he played for Madrid so far. Saved us on countless occasions.

It's clear that somebody has to move out if Navas is coming,and the most logical option is Lopez. Iker is a club legend that has more to offer,Navas is a young keeper who became a worldwide start in this WC,and Lopez has always been just a guy who stands in the way of Iker. It's really not fair what kind of "support" he got from the media and the fans all this time he was here. A lot of people don't want to admit he's an amazing keeper that has been almost perfect for us in every game,just because he is the one keeping San Iker on the bench.

He will most probably go now,but who ever gets him,has a world class keeper in their team.
+2
"Navas isn't Lopez ? Wait what ? If I remember correctly it was all iker that was causing huge fuss playing 2nd fiddle to Lope"

Really? Not once has casillas complained about sitting on the bench or being the clubs second keeper... There is a big difference between the media making a fuss and the player making.

If they both remain i think carlo should just invert their matches..... This season lopez should take champions league and copa and iker takes la liga
^This. Iker never complained. Thank you DaGaza :)
It was the media creating more fuss tbh. And Mt, what does Lopez not staying with Villareal through relegation has to do with his talet? Lopez was a beast. Simple as that.
Very interesting. As Ronaldo's brand is growing this man has decided to sue him for the trademark CR7.

http://uk.mobile.reuters.com/article/idUKKBN0FZ1ZW20140730?irpc=932
Did you actually read the article? Exactly the opposite is true.

"Global soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is also known to fans by the shorthand CR7, prompting the company behind his line of sleek underwear to target a Rhode Island man who has trademarked the letter-number combination, according to a new lawsuit."

JBS Textile Group who make Cristiano Ronaldo branded underwear is demanding that a Rhode man, Christopher Renzi who owns the CR7 trademark since 2009, give up the trademark. They've also asked the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to cancel Renzi's trademark. Renzi says the mark comes from his initials, and the day he's born, October 7th. Renzi's lawyer says that they can prove that were producing CR7 products in America before Cristiano Ronaldo.

"“We just want them to leave us alone,” said Renzi’s attorney Michael Feldhuhn."

I knew it!
@Hikmat is secretly a Barcelona board member masquerading as a Madridista!
He never reads the fine print!

Bale v Roma:
http://youtu.be/tU_5RJrlRcI
Easy prediction of the day: Bale will be Madrid's best player this coming season.
+2
@St1or Hmmmm, I don't see Bale as that kind of player. He's more Sanchez-esque, happily sacrificing glory in order for Ronaldo to score 130 goals in a calendar year (a la Messi).
And just as Messi was the most important, I see Ronaldo also being the most important. His goal-scoring rate at his age is commendable. No drop off at all.

Khedira to BILD: "On August 5th I start training in Madrid to get ready for the new season."

In response to rumors he might be leaving this summer.
If he is staying is because he plans to renew. If he doesn't renew he'll be sold before the summer window closes. Guaranteed.

To say RM isn't losing any sleep at the prospect of Khedira leaving is an understatement. Especially afer seeing the way the team performed during his extended absence last season.
He could leave for free next season.
So we lost against Roma. Didn't watch the game,but looking at the stats and highlight's we dominated the game,but Roma scored their goal frrom their one and only chance in the game. Kinda reminds me of our past game against Inter,same thing happened there. There is no need to worry,but I hope we will get more effective with our chances in time for the season start.
no i watched the game, roma were good for the win, had more chances after they went 1-0 up actually, just couldn't hit the target. most of madrid's best chances were hit straight at the keeper or blocked/snuffed out before they could get a shot off. roma are a good team.
+5
^
I don't know what you watched but Roma had two chances. One was the goal and one after a Ramos mistake. In the first half Casillas could have taken a nap and it wouldn't have made a difference.

Madrid bossed the first half and part of the second until fatigue set in and most of the first team was taken off and even then Madrid still controlled the game.

Madrid just lacked firepower upfront.
+6
I agree with SIF I watched the game too. I can't really recall a moment where Madrid had a clear chance on goal, where Roma had at least 2. Bossed the game?? Lol...Madrid might have had more posession but didn't really do much with it.

Roma easily deserved the win for sure though.
+6
I'm just watching the game,and in the first half Roma absolutely couldn't do anything. Madrid keep possession and were always around their box,with a couple of half chances as well. When Roma had possession they could only keep it in their own half. I really doubt Roma was a better side in this game. Not that it matters,it's only a friendly preseason game.
+1
Roma won so I guess we have to rewrite history to make it seem they were amazing and Madrid had no chance.

Roma won. Fine. Congragulations. You don't have to lie though. The game was what it was.

''Madrid keep possession and were always around their box,with a couple of half chances as well''

Kinda funny to see that here after so many ''but we had possession''-jokes about Barca on this forum
+9
no one here is re-writing history, no one said roma were dominant either. they did enough to deserve the win, that's all i'm saying. they defended well, and created a couple good chances. it wasn't a lucky win, they played well in my opinion.

dry your tears man, yes madrid had most of the ball and most of the chances, but the best chances in the game were mostly the few that roma created (totti and pjanic) imo. i think there was really only one madrid shot that made it to the keeper that i would say needed a good save from roma, and it was hit right at the keeper. the rest of the chances were defended fairly well.

i would say for 60 minutes it was mostly madrid creating chances while roma defending well, but after the goal, roma looked more likely to score the next with the couple of chances they made around the 6 yard box.
+1
Maaza

I was describing the first half of the game,I didn't say we were better because we had more possession. Again you see the world possession and understand it as being better,so the jokes about Barca fans and possession seem to be true.
+1
@Pejvl

''Again you see the world possession and understand it as being better''

lol WTF dude?? How exactly did I say that possession means better? I didn't say anything like that.
+6
So then whats the point of your first post? What was so funny then? I said we had possession in the first half and some half chances and somehow you linked that to: "but we had possession''-jokes about Barca on this forum". Care to explain?
All you did was talking about how you guys had more possession, how you were ''always around their box'', how Roma could ''only keep it in their own half''. And then you said ''I really doubt Roma was a better side in this game''.

Everything in your post implies that having more possession and being around their box was what makes you think that Roma weren't the better team.

Or did you want to talk about possession first and then, having nothing to do with stuff you said earlier, just make a statement how Roma weren't the better team, without explaining your opinion?

Maybe you should have chosen your words better.
+4
At the time when I posted I was just ending the first half,so i gave my short opinion on it. From what i saw the ball was mostly on their half,either Madrid was attacking or them trying to keep it. I think the word "possession" is the closest one to describing that.

Of course I doubted that they were the better team after a saw that they couldn't get one attack together in the whole half. The whole first 45min were played on their half. Possession was actually not that much in our favor,but where it was concentrated(on their par of the field) is what was decisive. I don't have to explain anything to you if you didn't watch the game,I was responding to people who actually did watch it,and then you jumped in.

Sorry man,this doesn't make any sens to compare to "we had possession" jokes about Barca. Maybe you just strengthen the joke,cause you presumed right away that by having possession i told everybody we were better. Looks like I'll have to write everything to details from now on,just so people don't get "confused".

Good stuff with Dodo and Carvajal from the other day:
