On the Eve of Battle

So remember Adam Bader of the RealMadridTalk page from the preview? Well, he posted his own preview of el clásico and included an interview with me on his site. So check it out!

Don’t forget my preview or Puyol’s awesomeness:

I know that Wesley Sneijder doesn’t play for RM anymore, but that is because Puyol tackled him out of the squad. Fuck yeah!

    can someone pls tell me if The YaYa is going to play

    • November 29, 2009

      If Richter magnitude scale showed no concerns that there will be any catastrophic effects, then most likely, he will step in.

    liveblogchatthingy 1 or 2 hours before the game starts?

    Yes, The Yaya will play, and most likely start. He’s part of our most attacking, yet solidly defensive lineup.

    It still isn’t known for sure, but the latest from BarcaTV is that Ibra starts, and Mrssi subs. Thong Boy also starts on the bench.

    The city is so intenae right now. It’s almost waiting to pop. Of course in the event of a win, the cry will be “To the fountain!”

    According to a report, los Blancos will start the match as such:

    Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas

    Defenders: Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Raul Albiol and Alvaro Arbeloa

    Midfield: Lassana Diara

    Xabi Alonso and Marcelo

    Forward: Kaka

    Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain

    Awfully quiet in this space.

    Undiamo is the ref. For believers in omens, his Clasic record is excellent with us, including the ’05 3-0 hammering, and last year’s 6-2. He also oversaw a draw that in fact should have been a win, the 3-3 dtaw in which their first Diarra fouled the crap outta Ronaldinho late in the match.

      Way.too.pumped.to.type.

      I’m pretty sure it’s quiet here because everyone’s vocabulary is seriously limited. It’s El freaking Clasico today! If anyone attempted to type it would come out like this:

      “VISCA EL BARCA!!! Barcelona, barca barca visca barca. Xaviniesta barca Yaya Messi. Puyol? Ibra, Ibra, Ibra! Barceloooooona. Visca Barca? Visca Barca, visca visca GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL”

    The lineup today is going to be:
    Valdez
    Alves Puyol Pique Abidal
    Busi Xavi Kieta
    Messi Ibra Iniesta

  17. jordi

    Valdés; Alves, Pique Puyol Abidal, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Keita, Messi, Henry e Iniesta.

    Just seen the Nou Camp on Sky TV and it’s chucking it down with rain. Good football will be hard if that continues. Wonder who that hurts most 🙂
