what the flying f*ck!?

why xabi? yes, he is in decline but lets not bullsh!t ourselves... the team needs alonso... we thought we had his replacement in illara... we were wrong.... we have no one like him... the only CDM mid who knew how to defend was Casemiro (who was still in progress) and we just loaned him out.... this isn't good... with the loss of di maria and now alonso the team looks like its gonna be quite unstable
+1
plus... who's gonna teach Luka the ways of the Force?! :( :( :(
I guess Alonso realized James will play no matter what. This sucks so much. First Di Maria, and now Alonso. Whose next?
Real Madrid will not fight to keep Xabi Alonso and I don't blame them. He's on the decline. I just don't like how late it is in the window.
Without Alonso, we are spineless. I don't give a f**k if he's in 'decline' he's still better than Illara.
Xabi Alonso to give a press conference tomorrow to explain why he is leaving Real Madrid.
why would alonso leave madrid he just signed two year contract I dont believe until i see it in Real madrid website.
+1
Alonso wants to leave. Bayern are interested.
yep heading to Bayern. I mean really? Just because you're not a guaranteed start you want out? wow.
Let him leave!! He's getting down now, foul prone and doesn't add anything to the attack because he NEVER takes any shots at goal. If he does leave then we'll have that spot open for Illara and maybe less headache for Carlo. Can't understand that in order for teams to win titles they need a good starting 11 and strong support from their bench. Why do these players all say they understand being rested/ benched at times and still complain like "bitches".
Lie down, try not to cry, cry alot



Noooooooo xabi dont leave
Ok, what the hell is this now?! This better be just a stupid rumor,cause I don't want Xabi to leave. We would be left with one midfielder who can defend,and that's Khedira. We still need Alonso,no matter his age,he's still crucial.
i wonder if you guys will be replacing di maria and alonso if he leaves, or are rodriguez and kroos the replacements? i mean technically you still have 6 CAM/CMs in modric kroos james and illaramendi khedira and isco.
Being sports just announced he has agreed in principle to leave for bayern. Bayern desperately need a holding midfielder after Martinez' injury. Schweinsteiger is their other option after kroos left. So he will be a starter at bayern for sure.
Alonso retires from international duty.

Falcao!!!!
+1
Man, falcao?

Well I will definitely take him over our current no'9 but the striker i'm loving now is jovetic
I would not mind Falcao at all,he's still a great striker,and he looks fine right now,scoring in every game he plays for Monaco. But i wouldn't mind Jovetic or any other good/decent striker right now.
+1
How about the Reus talk?? I mean how happy will Perez be to bench every good player we already have at Madrid? It may very well be nonsense rumors but still Marco Reus?? Can't see Jovetic leaving City with the run he's on right now and I surely can't see Manuel allowing him to be sold to Real Madrid.
The main issue I have with our CBs Pepe and Ramos for 2 hard-nosed players their play is that of School-boys at times. If they put more effort into to being intimidating in their tackling and reading of the game then they wouldn't be exhibiting all the antics we sometimes see from them both. Nesta,Stam,Vidic,Ferdinand,Maldini,Baresi and some others are a few that did their talking on the pitch and were seen as legends as CBs. What Pepe and Ramos need to do is to watch some old footage and see how to conduct themselves in pressure situations home and away. Whenever you look at ramos or pepe's pic advertising our kits these guys look intimidating especially Ramos but when we watch them on the field it's something totally different.

What I would love for Carlo to do is to put both Nacho and Varane together in a hostile venue in la liga and allow the seniors to see how to conduct themselves on the pitch. What we will always get from these two youngsters in determination and grit and a lack of YELLOW CARDS OR REDS, and they get the job done without all the spitting,stomping,slapping,punching, elbowing and the like.
+1
Ozil bought for 15m - sold for 45m

Higuain bought for 13m - sold for 37m

Robinho bought for 23m - sold for 42m

Di Maria bough for 25m - sold for 84m

Morata sold for 22m

Some nice deals we managed to get in the end.
+6
Perez seems to outshine himself every year. I wonder who will be the next record breaking sale?
+1
Nice job to cover for these :P no sarcasm intended
Kaká 65M
Robben 36M
Isco 30M
Illarramendi 30M
Coentrao 30M
Sneijder 27M
+7
Kroos and Varane
+2
why would we need to cover up for Coentrao and Isco? They have been excellent signings IMO...
+1
and illara still has a lot of room for improvement..
Kaka was a bargain.
Robben and Sneijder weren't Perez signings. They were sold for 25m and 15m respectively so they weren't huge loses. Isco, illarra and Fabio are still in the squad so time will tell.

Only kaka was the outright disaster from that list.
+3
You can go ahead and take isco and coentrao off the list, and in 5 months take illaramendi off


Also worthy of note: bale's price tag has not been brought up in a looong while.

Obviously because he delivered but nice to see the haters go back to the woodwork. He did cost alot but ill take la decima and copa for the price
+2
Correction higuain was sold for 40m

I was also thinking thesame; perez hasn't really flopped in transfer business though. He sells for a decent profit.. asides kaka whom he practically had to let go, others have been good business nonetheless
+1
Robinho sold for 42m. I'm going to read that and reread that until it sinks in.
+3
^They lucked out with City making arguably the worst investment of all their botched transfers.
+1
@Danny414

"Bale was cheap.
The signing of Gareth Bale is the model of Real Madrid, signing the best player in the world at this moment, and that is what I say.
All the great players of Real Madrid have been cheap. I will not say the amount, but we must not focus too much on the purchase price.
Some numbers that have come out I find difficult to understand and, if I were a journalist, I would not have reported them.
Tottenham did not want to sell and we respected that. Then, when we found out that Manchester United would be making an offer, we made our own."

Kaka was NOT a financial flop.
His presence (even without knees) helped raise the asking price for endorsements.

Finally, you all see (at least some of) the light on Perez.

Once you look into the details, Madrid's role in the market is pretty damn brilliant in so many ways.
Kaka was Madrid's great signing for the past 10 years.
@Mt Perez is a financial wizard, agree, but shirt sales and fan reach and bargaining power are just easy things to throw about. They matter, true, but unless you really look at the finances, it's hard to tell whether Kaka's purchase was a financial success. So I don't know how you are so certain about your claims.

One thing I know for sure though: his transfer did not benefit Madrid financially nearly as much as Perez hoped.
@Tanmay I agree. Especially when Cristiano was purchased at the same time, so hard to determine who/what exactly made an impact.

I wasn't speaking of finances either (which I could care less about), but HOW and WHY matters are handled. Very classy (in comparison to EVERY other club).
From what I've read so far after our pre-season and SuperCopa and first league outing what I've noticed is that Madrid at times take too long for that "shot" and it makes the game from our end seem predictable and "dead". Yes ADM had this ability to amp up the pace but still it's still at the point that if CR7 or Bale isn't the one taking that chance then no-one else does. Going forward yes James and Kroos will need time to adapt to our style and I honestly hope that with both Isco and James that Carlo sees that this 4-3-3 really isn't playing into the strengths of personnel that Madrid has. Right now I think Isco should start before James giving him time to adapt and from what I've seen so far from Isco we will benefit from his ability and James as well.
+1
said it a while back that at the moment isco runs circles around james. and the response i got back was that i needed to stop talking s**t about james....lawl.
Ourbench is kinda boring looking at now..

In the past, the cameras always gave the bench alot more tv time when kaka was present but now nothing; illarramendi is not even doing a good job getting the bench some tv time upon his price tag :-)
+1
Aren't you glad?? Why show a bench with players who many believe should be on the pitch, when a team can only field 11. How many times do the cameras show Barca's bench when they're playing? When the cameras showed iker,kaka,ozil,pep,higuain,isco all that was doing is showing the issues that were within the players and management of the team. It never ever suggested how deep our squad was but the opposite if it wasn't who should be the gk, it was who should be the #10, striker, preferred cb etc. So I am glad the cameras DON'T show our bench as much as before.
Jese ain't boring mate. A badass haircut is coming soon, watchout!
