Ali has yet to fill out a bio.
LETS DO THIS, THE BLOOD IS PUMPING, IM SO HYPED AND I AM OVER HYPED BUT I DONT CARE!!! WE ALWAYS CRASH OUT AT THE SEMIS, LETS NOT SCREW UP THIS TIME!!! THIS IS OUR YEAR!! LA DECIMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is just me or are you guys still a little sour from that loss...? I don't want to harp on the ref but I think most would agree Undiano didn't have a good night on Sunday in terms of decisions. Now Madrid can't only blame him though, the fact of the matter is we gave Barca way too much space in between the lines, our normally solid back line was not compact/balanced enough and we missed a few chances that should've been buried in that 1st half.
Now I'm not blaming any players because to be honest, maybe just me alone, but I was pretty satisfied with all of our players effort and game on Sunday. Maybe Ronaldo, Alonso and Carva could've performed a bit better but it happens, no biggie.
Cutting to the chase, the reason why I feel slightly still sour is because we were matching if not outplaying Barca until we were down a man and in no way do I feel we deserved to lose that match on Sunday. We at least deserved a draw IMO, that red card changed everything and once i saw him pull for his back pocket I knew it was going to be a massive uphill battle not only to score another but keep Barca from scoring as well down a man. When playing a man down against a possession team like Barcelona who are one of the top sides in the world with arguably the best player in the world in Messi....you are pretty much screwed with one less player.
Oh well, I guess all we can do now is hope the team bounce back from this and just look forward with hope, forget the whole ref fiasco and keep it in the past. The bottom line is we did not lose any title on Sunday night, let's build on the positives, learn from the negatives and forget the "what-ifs". Any thoughts?
By the way, heads up my fellow Madridista :D, I know a loss to our rival sucks no matter what but we still tied for top of the table and we can still exact revenge on that "other" team in the Copa Final. Ignore all haters (though at times I do agree the the urge to expose the absolute idiotic nonsense can be too much to bare : )
Hoping barcelona fans lost points and are banned from UCL for 2 years
Hi! Just read your discussion with this thug Xabernas or what's his name - from september 2012. About "Real Madrid drama from a Barca fan perspective". God, he IS a jerk! Too bad I didn't read BR that much those days and couldn't support you. It's really sad about Barcelona and UCL but I wonder what all those bandwagon fans will say now..... That Barcelona is still better than RM and Morinho-Ronaldo-Ramos-Özil are all drama queens?
Yeah, I do understand what you said. Well, some of these people think it's as easy as doing transactions on FIFA. The reality is that they need to invest on a couple of players for sure, but I suppose it would be hypocritical is they go beyond that and suddenly follow the Galaticos model, or the PSG/City/Chelsea example. But they do need to reinforce the academy core (Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Pique, etc., help for Messi in attack) because it is decaying. Barcelona has failed to do that in the last two years, which is now why this downfall becomes greater than it should have been. The fact is, Barcelona can't suddenly throw away everyone who has failed. I would be very shocked if they do that. That means that people like Pedro, Fabregas, and Pique are huge disappointments that will stay because they have earned it and are part of the family. Also, I imagine that Barca will be loyal to Xavi and Puyol, even if they cannot longer play at their previous high levels and even if it costs them money and possibly titles.
