Keep an eye on Sporting CP's William. He's going to boss Chelsea's midfield!
Didnt happen...
Chelsea were wasteful...
Could easily have scored 3-4goals.
+1
Alaba playing as CDM. Pep logic.
he played in cdm before lvg came to bayern. still plays there for austria. he has played cdm, cm, lm, lcb, lb and lwb. great player.
+1
It's a new tactic, 2-3-4-1..
He's been doing that all season too, not just this game. It's a very good move imo. Alaba has great potential to be a Scholes-type player.
From what vids I've seen of Keylor's training at Levante and what I've seen from RM's own does it look like a step down from what he's accustomed to?
Ibra seems to be injured everytime his team is facing Barça...
Not when he scored that offside goal against us in 2013

Zlatalona

@Realfan

you have Messi and ronaldo on your team

and your attack is so loaded man; jealous
Ahhh! I should have done it in the beginning. I guess I had more faith in Arsenal than Messi.

edit: You got both Messi and Ronaldo too! But I have my boy Neymar!
Anybody here tried the new FIFA 15? Last year i tough FIFA 14 was bad,and oh boy did I get surprised this year. They completely destroyed the game,you can just take Ronaldo or Robben and run from midfield to the goal with no problem. Defenders are unusable,they cant do anything against fast players and when controlled by the CPU the tend just to move out of the way. So disappointed in this game,the demo promised much more.
+2
Lool I swear. I've been playing with barca. Man on man, how easy it is to just run with messi. I have always sucked at dribbling and all the sudden I'm doing good lol.
+1
Switch to legacy defending and turn on the accelerate or something option under gameplay assistance which enables your players to accelerate at full speed. Most importantly, don't let CPU chase the wingers and make sure you do it yourself and press tackle while chasing for easy dispossess.

I thought they nerfed the pace and air balls on FIFA15 - this is how I conquer division 1 on Fifa13. Truthfully, I feel like they enhanced the gameplay to capture Barca's tiki taka even better. I struggled more against players that know when to press turbo and dribble effectively.

I agree though, CPU defenders are more clueless on this year's version compared to previous years but defending is more effective if you control it instead of letting CPU take on fast pace players.
Yeah but u cannot make any of these changes to online game modes. Or can you? I only play online!
+1
You can't change it to legacy online or FUT unless you're playing CPU. And I completely 100% agree with you Pejvl. Just run with a fast player and you can almost score. Last year they did a better job to slow the pace down but this year, it's back to that.

And Pejvl, if you think that's frustrating wait till players like Ibra or Tevez start shooting from 40 yards out ;). It will go in almost every time. The goalies push up way too much and if you shoot from anywhere it will go in. It's so stupid.
+1
@Pejvl..
agree with ya mate...dribbling and close-control are OP in FIFA15...its goals galore every match i play...i am currently in FUT div 6 right now..and i don't remember a single game where i got a clean sheet..there is no balance between attack and defense...nightmare for defenses..lol..
+1
Glad to know im not the only one lol. Most of my games finish 4-4,or with a similar result,i have so many draws becuase defending is impossible. Its not even fun to go through helpless defenses and score all the time,and not to mention the feeling when you're defending and you know exactly whats your opponent going to do,but you just cant do anything with defenders to stop him!

FIFA 14 had a lot of bugs and problems,but there was stability in play,you could actually play in a lot of different ways. This year the whole system is broken and chaotic.
Can you also score easily with headers from crosses in 15 like you can with FIFA 14? After reading your reviews I'm thinking I'll sit this one out. I can't bear another year of screaming at the TV because some 14 year old keeps running in a straight line and scoring mindless goals with cr7.
Nope,headers are now impossible to score,they are rare and that's one of the little improvements they made. But remember how easy it was to score a header in Fifa 14? Well now going trough the middle of defense with a fast player is just as easy as that. If you like to play a slower possession play,forget it,everything is lightning fast.
+1
@frankyFingers..No mate..heading is very tough in this version unless its an open goal..GKs are overpowered too..they stop everything from long-range and fail while making easy saves...some goals come up from hilarious GK mistakes...

@Pejvl...have u tried chip finishes in the game..? it found to soo difficult and annoying...i love to score in the way especially when i play with Messi in the team..but in 15..no matter how perfectly u chip the ball GK catches it with ease...and also Casillas is OP in the game..he wont let anything in apart from some silly buggy goals..
Subhakar7

Chipa are almost impossible from longer distances. But i noticed they are very effective in 1 on 1 situations against keepers. Just go straight into the keeper,wait for as long as you can,and when he dives into your legs just gently chip the ball over him. Works almost every time.
Xabi Alonos set the new the Bundesliga record for most successful pass in one game. In last nights game witch Bayern wone 2-0, Alonso had 196 successful passes. No wonder Pep wanted him,he's been in Bayern for just a couple of games,and already he's bossing their midfield and breaking records.
+1
he and varane are two of my favorite players. i might have to watch all munich games from now on :/

it hurts that he is gone
+1
If you watch he is the focal point of the entire game every game really.
Does Barça (Messi, Neymar, Suarez) have the best attacking force in Europe, or do we (Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema)
Lol, could you ask a more boring question?
+14
On paper they do in my opinion. But in reality we will see. Although suarez will have a late start and first season with barsa and no pre season.

But just think of it like this, who would you pick if you had to choose a front 3 out of those 6?

Me
Messi ronaldo suarez

Bale is great but messi and suarez are probably more dangerous than bale and benzema

+1
Lol @Poble. In seriousness I agree with Danny. On paper Barca's front three are better, but given that they haven't played a single game together yet, it's hard to say who's better on the field.
i would rather see suarez play first.... he was great in the premiere league but we dont know how he will do in spain.. and with a team as complex as barca especially.

in the end.... i honestly think bale-benz and CR are the more productive trio... perhaps its because they took so little time to gel... neymar took a whole season to finally link up properly with messi (for now cause the season is still beginning) and who knows whether suarez will take a a full match or a full season to gel.

In the end... if you asked me which trio i would take for a life and death match right now, it would be the BBC..... we've seen what they can do... but like i said... before we can truly make those type of decisions with full assurance, we should give neymar-messi-suarez a season to play together.
+4
lol...
seriously? you think we have a better attack than they do?

well, i know Suarez has not featured yet for barca; but he will get an automatic starting spot when he finishes his ban and actually, i have a feeling they will be even more deadly than they are now.

neymar and messi are really on fire, and a very good reason is messi is assisting more than scoring this season and he makes it look scary easy more than before.

no offense to my fellow madridsta, but they do have a better attack than we do
+4
Our attacking force is proven,theirs is still not,Suarez has not even played yet.

Our front 3 all have their positions and purpose,they just complement each other well(yes,even Benzema). When you Look at Messi,Suarez and Neymar,you see all 3 players who play the best when they are given the central spot of attack and a free role. So looking at that,at least one(Neymar),if not 2 of them(Suarez and Naymar) will have to be moved out of their best position. Our front 3 make much more sense,they all play on their favorite positions and have a clear style of attack.

Messi,Suarez and Naymar sounds like a disaster (and a pleasure) for the manager to field correctly.On the paper both of this lines up look scary. In the end,the stats will show who's better when the season closes.
+1
well if you guys were talking about a complete attacking squad... we are far better than barca in that aspect. i mean completely better than them.. all our midfielders are soo attack minded that i cant even comprehend it; i wish they weren't

our DMs khedira is even better going forward than sitting back

CMs kroos and modric are equally considered Attacking midfielders cos of what they can do going forward.

isco, jese, Rodriguez.. i need not say..

the only midfielder who is more defensive in our squad right now is Illarramendi (the more reason i think he should play more than anyone even if he is not the best in that position or rather so s**t to be a madrid player :)

but when you are talking about the front 3, i have to say, barcelona have a better trio than we do..

- all theirs can actually score, whereas we are praying for benzema to hit the net at least once in 4 matches, but men this dude is down the chat for a strikers goal ratio

- i think you have to put the fact that, those filling in for suarez are just ok compared to suarez ability.. i really doubt a player like Luiz will make a team worse, rather he will make them better.
+1
All I will say is that comparing the two forwards lines, I believe if Suarez comes and gives Messi another Boot to pass to for a goal I'd say Barcelona has a scarier attack than Madrid. Seriously how many does either Bale or Benzema chip in with compared to those that will be scored by Suarez and Neymar? Right now we're in an ever never ending debate about should Benzema score more goals or should he just look to assist and score when possible and Bale looks as if he's just along for the ride.

N.B. this ? is asked comparing 3 players already playing together VS 2 players with 1 to be added later, that should answer the ? in itself!!
on paper their front is better... i think that on paper Benz kinda drags us down (not that he isn't a great striker) but like i said... knowing what our trio can do i would take them in a life or death situation (if it were right now) over FCB trio simply because i know what to expect of them
+1
Why are you guys discussing this so much? It's simple:

Messi > Cr7
Neymar > Bale

And suarez vs Benz? Is that even a valid question?

:-P
we have benzema tho......
+2
Franky4finger

keep deceiving urself..

i'll forget the messi vs ronaldo debate because over the years, i have learnt that this 2 are not even human beings

but neymar > Bale?? i could crap myself laughing
Obviously at diving, that's a guarantee.
Neymar can't even see bales shadow in anyway..

As for Suarez vs Benzema
Suarez >>>>>>>>> Benzema
+2
I was joking but since you brought up diving, bale definitely has neymar covered.

Speaking of chasing shadows, neymar is already at 6 goals. Now I do understand that messi is providing him the service but still. You might be mistaking bale's superiority over neymar because of the trophies he won last year. Its always a difficult transition for any player to come play at barca. Besides neymar came to barca at a time where the team was struggling. I think if neymar stays fit he will come into his own this year. Then you will realize why Perez wanted to buy neymar before he settled for bale. ;)
messi v ronaldo is even on form
neymar vs bale is even on form

suarez>benzema
+1
I was about to say that I enjoyed reading all the unbiased opinions about this topic but I guess not :p. Anyways, I can't add anymore to what you guys have added. I'm just glad La Liga has all these players.
+1
who wants to bet?
Suarez will score more goals than Benzema this season :)
I'm willing to bet Neymar will score more than Benzema, let alone the best ST in the world.
Hello all.... its been a long long time... Hows my beloved team (Real Madird) doing.... been watching the games in and out... finally goooooood to be back.
+2
Welcome back
+2
Thanks Danny.
+1
Welcome!
+1
I dont mind having chica but since we werent gonna sign an expensive striker , it would have been nice to see the club bring back callejon :)

BTW he just scored for napoli
+2
I liked callejon. he was white through and through but jese is better. We have enough offensive options at the moment i think. More than adequate.
+1
i know we do.... im just saying... if Chica wasn't already with us and we were still looking...
Anyone else notice Bale stopped acting like Ronaldo's pet? Hes not playing off Ronaldo like he did before, but now hes playing for himself. I think he realized in order to be recognized as the 5th best player in the world, he needs to start make his own special moments.

Oh and BTW, my top five players are...

1. Ronaldo
2. Messi
3. Suarez
4. Neymar
5. Bale
I see you really love goalscorers
+2
Bale just had 2 quite games in a row,i dont think there is any need to worry about him. I see him as our player with most assists this season. Im worried about his new hair style choice thou lol.
It's fascinating to think that Barca n Madrid have the world's best 5 players.
+1
Yes, I noticed that too. Despite having 7 goals and 2 assists this season, I still feel he's not as involved with build-up and team play. Those bad moments where he disappears in a match are often forgotten because of his 1 or 2 moments of brilliance that he has most games. They are easier to notice this year, so far, though. He needs to be more involved.

I'm not too worried though, he is still delivering goals and assists for the time being. And I'm sure once Jese returns it will light a fire under his ass. Benzema too, hopefully.

As for your top 5, I'd personally replace Neymar and Bale with Ibrahimovic and Iniesta, but that's just my opinion.
+2
Zeke,

Really, one or two moments of brilliance?
..bale has been so good, everybody has off games just like he did in the last game..

And clearly, you fail to notice that his lack of sufficient attack is because he has been playing with substitute right back than his usual partner, carvajal. So less attacking balls come his way..

Dude bale is not one sided, you easily forget last season when ronaldo was not present, how soooo one side he was but yet scored from different position and different ways
+1
Carvajal has started in 3 of our 6 La Liga games so far, and although he is important in our starting 11 and in his involvement with Bale, we can't attribute Bale's below average performance entirely to his absence. He is simply not in a great run of form in the present moment, but like I said I'm not worried as he is still delivering.

I never claimed Bale is or was one sided. My point is he not always involved in team play as much as I'd like him to be. Sure he pops up with goals and assists, but often times he is marked out of the game on the right wing and doesn't have too much influence.

By the way- I have not forgotten Bale's contributions last year, nor am I diminishing his this year. Every one has off games, and that is what Gareth is going through right now.
