    Valdés, Alves, Puyol, Piqué, Abidal, Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta, Messi, Ibrahimovic and Henry.

    Yaya sits again. Wow.

    As I said in the other thread, you should update your listings to reflect that the game will also be on

    no toure again? whatever pep.

    The Yaya must focus his meditations on the sub freezing temperatures he will encounter in the Ukraine. If he is to keep the entire team warm, he needs a few days of preparation.

    EE looked really good in the first half, I thought it was gonna be a blowout, the Almeria goalkeeper made AMAZING saves.

    • Aeneas
      December 5, 2009

      Right. But now in the second half the EE defenders are competing to see who can put the most weight on their heels.

    I think Yaya will leave, if not in January, then he’ll do at the end of the season.

    So maybe this is our strongest line-up atm (with the exception of Yaya, but it’s his own and/or his agaent’s fault). It speaks for the huge meaning of this match… but now that we have all our big guns out there, we HAVE to win!
    Oh, and I can’t wait to see Xaviniesta 🙂

    • December 5, 2009

      Okay, stop this. Do you A) Rest Yaya for a tremendously crucial CL match and start Busi or do you B) do the opposite?

      If you choose A you’re Guardiola. If you choose B you are confused about priorities. We have to get Busi ready for January and we have to do that with playing time in the less crucial matches. That would be Depor rather than Dynamo.

  11. December 5, 2009

    Haha I switched to the Inter Juve game, switched back 10 mins later, and boom. 1-2. Hahaha. Should I keep it on the Inter Juve game? It clearly works.

      What is the deal with Mourinho?

  12. Alex
    December 5, 2009

    I still think Pep thinks Yaya is stronger and better than Busi, but is prepping Busi for ACN. I also think Yaya has to understand this, although frustrated, he won’t leave. Why would you leave the best team in the world?

    • December 5, 2009

      Money? Family? Playing time?

      • Alex
        December 5, 2009

        Overrated 🙂

  13. December 5, 2009

    You can see Real getting impatient, firing shots when passing would be better.

  14. Alex
    December 5, 2009

    wow, that was close

  21. Aeneas
    December 5, 2009

    That was reaaaaaally bad defending

  22. December 5, 2009

    Come on Almeria. Hold on for 17 minutes.

  23. December 5, 2009

    Almeria are going to concede here. They haven’t seen the ball in 5 minutes.

  24. December 5, 2009

    Free kick. Uh oh.

  25. Aeneas
    December 5, 2009

    That was an interesting spot for the free kick.

  26. Aeneas
    December 5, 2009

    penalty, what the hell

  27. December 5, 2009

    Crap. There you go.

    No justice

    saved. benzema scores with the rebound 3-2 EE

  31. Alexinho
    December 5, 2009

    Valdes, Alves, Puyol, Pique, Abidal, SERGIO BUSQUETS, Xavi, Iniesta, Messi, Ibra, Henry.

    Is Busi in THE starting XI this season? I don’t know everyone, I think Yaya’s days may be numbered given how this month has shaped up.

  32. jordi
    December 5, 2009

    benzema looked off to me

  33. Jose50
    December 5, 2009

    Oh I get it. La Liga needs Real Madrid to stay competitive, so in the spirit of Navidad they gift a penalty to Real Madrid.

    So effin’ wrong on so many levels.

  34. Aeneas
    December 5, 2009

    4-2. Ronaldo. this sucks.

  35. jordi
    December 5, 2009

    wow scoring a tap in and the shirt comes off.Fuck thongboy

  36. December 5, 2009

    Done and done. Back to the Inter Juve game.

  37. Alex
    December 5, 2009

    Ronaldo is such a douche

  38. Alex
    December 5, 2009

    does he get a card for taking the shirt off?

  39. Jose50
    December 5, 2009

    At least we can look forward to Real getting found the **** out against Valencia next week.

  40. jordi
    December 5, 2009

    Honestly would the pants come off he scored a freekick?

  41. jordi
    December 5, 2009

    jaja ese portugues, hijo puto es

  42. Alex
    December 5, 2009

    HAHA, crynaldo red

  43. December 5, 2009

    Crynaldo should be suspended for 3 games for that kick. You cannot do that. UNACCEPTABLE.

    • Alex
      December 5, 2009

      At least he misses Valencia for sure

  44. jordi
    December 5, 2009

    that should be a direct red , and a 3 match ban for violent conduct, i doubt it will be changed

  45. December 5, 2009

    What happened? I had switched.

    December 5, 2009

    EE undeservedly wins…..again

    • florentino perez
      December 5, 2009

      Just like you undeservedly won last week ? Hahaha did you even watch the freaking game ? Wwe dominated the whole first half if it wasn’t for their keeper they would have been down by 5 goals they were only good for 15 min of the second half other than the game was all real madrid , wth do you mean we won undeservedly ?

      • Alex
        December 5, 2009

        Thats my incredibly unbiased, fair, and correct opinion……

      • Vj
        December 5, 2009

        Ye ol’FuckFace dove like a swan to win that penalty.. which won you the game undeservedly..

      • florentino perez
        December 5, 2009

        Alex loool no comment then

        VJ did the GK touch him or not ? ……ill answer that for you he did so he had it coming , name me a striker that wouldnt throw himself to the ground when a GK makes contact with them in the box , just one ……dont be naive bro this is the reality of the game , anyways that game should never have came down to that , almeria’s GK deserve a pay riiise for his incredible first half , if it wasnt for him they’d have lost it by 6 goals anyways im out like barcelona will be of the CL this midweek peace 🙂

      • Vj
        December 6, 2009

        He touched the ball didn’t he? Whether he touched ol’FuckFace is irrelevant.. And DiverBoy got his just rewards with the sending off..

        And is that the best you can do? Saving your asses by diving against a mid-table team and that too at home.. Pathetic!

        Out like Barcelona? you do mean out like Real Madrid after all, it’s no mean feat getting knocked out of the CL in the pre-quarters FIVE times in a row and making Alcorcon the best team in Madrid.. But I guess you already knew that..

  47. Helge
    December 5, 2009

    lol, everyboday expected a win from the EE, right?

    But who would have expected that CR will not play in el Mestalla? But it is only fair, because Valencia miss David Silva.
    I can definitely see them lose some points next week. So as long as we win today, everything is fine.

  48. Jose53
    December 5, 2009

    And we stay ahead… Good week.

  49. Maximus
    December 5, 2009

    Erm…Busquets should be dropped, I don’t even care if they play Xavi as CDM and ‘rest’ Toure who should have started this game along with 10 of our 11 best starters.

    How many assists does busquets have for the opposing team now, 3? He isn’t proving his place in the squad and he isn’t improving leading up to the ACN. Just drop him.


    • jordi
      December 5, 2009

      If we drop him we will shatter his confidence, infact its probably why pep didnt take him out today.Hes crucial for our second half of the season.

      • PM
        December 5, 2009

        May be we should develop a back up plan like playing Marquez or Chyg sometimes. Busi can get a red card anytime and all signs are showing him to be unreliable for 2 months.

      • Maximus
        December 6, 2009

        Barcelona isn’t that small a club that pep can risk defeats to keep a player’s confidence up, otherwise Bojan would get a lot more game time.

  50. PM

    When we need win Xavi-Iniesta midfield delivers. My only complain is our sluggishness in counter attack. I have noticed at least 2-3 potentially dangerous counter attacks dying somehow at the end. We need to be efficient here.

    Ronaldo’s kick was pathetic. Totally unacceptable from a professional.

    • OhYes
      December 5, 2009

      “My only complain is our sluggishness in counter attack.”

      Yup that is true, we’ve always been bad at this. The sort of game that Barca plays doesn’t lend itself well to CA, I think. (Coming from a tactics noob)
