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!

  1. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGHHHHHHHHH…

    CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS.

    SO PUMPED.

    I’LL BE JOSE57 ON MONDAY.

  2. awesome preview on the las post isaiah I’m so pumped. BAAAAARRRRRRRRCCCCCCCCAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Time to takedown the storm troopers!

    for some reason, i keep hearing “Duel of the Fates” in my head… epic…

    (if you don’t know what that is, well, congratulations, you are far less nerdy than i am!)

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

  4. 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!”

  5. 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

  6. 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.

    1. 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”

  10. I am not sure if Yaya will start today. Based on Busi’s performance in the last game.
    The lineup today is going to be:
    Valdez
    Alves Puyol Pique Abidal
    Busi Xavi Kieta
    Messi Ibra Iniesta

  11. SOOOO PISSED HOW YAYA IS NOT IN THE STARTING XI!!!
    HE’S GONNA GO TO CITY IF WE KEEP DOING THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Valdes
    Alves- Puyol-Pique- Abidal
    Busquets
    Xavi- Keita
    Messi Henry Iniesta
