    Isn't he an attacking midfielder? Wonder how he'd fit in, maybe take the ageing Emerson's spot and a change of formation to a 4-4-1-1 with Guerrero alone up top?

    I think they could use another centerback, fullback, striker, and maybe one more winger due to Danilo's age. I'd be surprised if they keep Paulinho for another year, surely he'd want to move on now. Almost 25 years old.

    I don't know, looked like his foot was right next to the defender's face. Even some LPB fans saying that the goal shouldn't have stood.

    They're in total control and leading right now anyways so it's all but over.

    It's meant as a joke. There was the video from last week's game Ronaldo fans were oozing about where he went almost 100m in a little more than 10s after a corner (then hit the post :p ). In fact if you actually time it it was actually a little more than 11s. He sort of did the same thing today ... then whiffed a ball in the air in front of the goal.

    Well done Espanyol :thumbsup:

    RM's set piece defense is so shockingly bad. I think they concede more set piece goals than Barca !!

    Thank you Espanyol! :D

    We can go 13 clear of LPB and 9 clear of Atleti tonight, massive if we win. Could go as far as giving us the title back.

    lol Espanyol, 19th in the table...
    C'mon Mourinho, walk out to the middle of the pitch after your players exit and let's see what kind of reaction the crowd gives you now. F--kin' over-inflated jerk.

    I don't believe it's his fault anyway...

    Real Madrid individual thinking can only go so far, last year they won from it but it ends some point.
    Barca are back were they belong..

    Seriously who from the front 4 tracks back to help?
    It seems like their reserve products out there give more heart then most of those players with the big salaries..


    Anyway it's all because their focusing on the CL this year ;)

    That's why they finished 2nd in their group???

    Reports out of Madrid are saying Mourinho has found a new reason to blame his team's 13 point deficit. According to him the posts are being rigged in Barca's favor before every game so that RM's and Barca's opponents shots hit the post but don't go in. :p

    Funny that RM fans think that all that's missing is motivation. If only the players would just try harder. :rolleyes:

    FFS all they won was a CDR and a La Liga.

    Funny too how they automatically got appointed "top 2 team in Europe" from 2010-present. Based on what exactly?? :confused:

    He earned his first trip but inherited the other two.
    And iirc, the 2005 final Liverpool v Sao Paulo was played just hours after Benitez had learned about the death of his mother. :(
