    Boateng sent off, and looks like his head is made out of a Lego. that’s the squarest head i’ve ever seen.

      I’ll tell you whose head looks like it was photoshoped onto his body: Tito Ortiz

    jee sus. we’ve looked COMPLETELY out of sorts in the 2nd half. should be 3-3.

      Bad finishing really. It could also be 6-1.

    Chelsea had their first real test today madrid have theirs tonight but I can only see a win for madrid i’m afraid.

      real that is

      Actually Chelsea’s came against Man City and they were found out. As for tonite, its Real for sure- Athletico are bottlers in the Derby

    Jesus Leo !

    Busquetized buildup. Messi should have scored!

  16. Kari
    November 7, 2010

    Messi gets booked for missing that chance 😀

  17. Hilal
    November 7, 2010

    You know if we had taken all our good chances today we would have scored about 8 goals. Messi and Villa both should have scored 3. It is so frustrating to watch!!!

    November 7, 2010

    Masch has taken a real beating in the center today.

  19. November 7, 2010

    Mascherano get lot of Yellow cards. Agreed 🙂

    Pathetico isn’t a real test.

    November 7, 2010

    Most defensive Barca will ever be – Keita Mash Busi

  23. November 7, 2010

    Keita for Pedro. Now we have our best offense line: Messi

    Should have been 8-3.

  25. Jnice
    November 7, 2010

    Great first half, we fell off the pace in the 2nd.

    3 goals, but damn, can we please improve our finishing? We should’ve had 6 or 7.

  26. Dave
    November 7, 2010

    Can anyone beat Real in FM 2010?How?

    I enjoyed that match. Very much so.

  28. Auld Super
    November 7, 2010

    It’s the nearest thing they’ll get besides us Valencia and Villareal

  29. Jose
    November 7, 2010

    Got the win today, and no injuries. That whole Pique affair is unfortunate.

    Oh, and if any of you are watching the Madrid derby hoping to see Real drop points, then you will only be disappointed. Real Madrid starts with 6 points every season because of those colchoneros.

    • Jose
      November 7, 2010

      Why is everyone incorrectly adding an “h” to Atletico?

  30. Auld Super
    November 7, 2010

    Their up to something with that H I tell ya.

    • Jose
      November 7, 2010

      It’s damn suspicious!

  31. Clue(less)
    November 7, 2010

    The only reason I am concerned about us not finishing our chances, and us allowing stupid goals, is the fact that EE already has a +7 goal advantage against us, which is like being another point ahead. I know they have some tough matches coming up, and I would bet the farm that Messi ends with more goals then Greg Louganis (see what I did there!!) but we need to start pounding some ass while keeping clean sheets.

    • jordi(TM)
      November 7, 2010

      head to head is all that matters though

    • Jose
      November 7, 2010

      But… goal differential doesn’t matter unless we have equal but opposite results AND we’re drawn.

      It’s the great thing about La Liga. It don’t matter if you win 9-0 or 1-0. In 36 of 28 matches (usually), it’s all about the result.

  32. Auld Super
    November 7, 2010

    I can watch real games till they go ahead then I cannot watch anymore. If the petulant one scores again tonight I will not be happy.

  33. blitzen

    And BTW, Villareal spanked Bilbao 4-1 today. They just keep getting better as the season goes on. Can’t wait to play them!

  34. Jnice
    November 7, 2010

    For those who were calling for Thiago to come in, remember, he was dropped before the game and didn’t make the bench.

  35. jordi(TM)
    November 7, 2010

    Pathetic.

    • Jnice
      November 7, 2010

      LOL, why are you even watching?! I called 4-0 before the match and stick by that.

  36. Kari
    November 7, 2010

    They do this every year.

    • jordi(TM)
      November 7, 2010

      Last year didnt reyes or someone actually assist higuain? I hate Atleti.

      • MoSSi
        November 7, 2010

        Why do they even play those 2 games?

      • BA
        November 7, 2010

        they should just start Real with 6 points every season and save both teams the trip.

  37. Clue(less)

    Isaiah, someone wrote a soccernet article saying Pastore dreams of playing for Barca, do you think that is the case, could we get him at a discounted price?

  38. BA
    November 7, 2010

    Atleti are truly pathetic.

  39. poipoi
    November 7, 2010

    bernabeu pushes the team a lot, it’s almost impossible than atleti wins there. haven’t seen a thing but I can imagine 😉 carvalho scored 1st ozil 2nd right?

    I wanna meet EE in camp nou so badly we should play every month

    Are they reeally singing jose mourinho? Fanbois.

    • Helge
      November 7, 2010

      Well, they buy most of their players from other clubs, do you expect them to invent an own chant for Mourinho? No, they just copy the Chelsea fans. Copy and buy, that’s how Real Madrid rolls.

    Btw how many times does alonso handball without penalties being given?Its not even like its disguised.

      I said that too, I can’t remember the earlier cases though 😀

    How many games is Pique out for?? I will like to think his suspension will only be for the Cup game against Ceuta and he will be available for Villarreal….I’m not sure but i think thats how it works right??

    Since Trezeguet got a double yellow card sending off, spent the cup game suspend and was back for the Real Madrid game the following week. Can someone enlighten me please?!?!?!?

    • Kari
      November 7, 2010

      A second yellow red means (and someone please confirm) that you’re suspended for a game, but your yellow count isn’t wiped clean. Pique will still be on 4–one away from another suspension– when he returns.

      He’d have to get another yellow against Vilarreal for him to be certain for El Clasico

      • Diego S.
        November 7, 2010

        Confirmed.

        He will miss Villareal , Play against Almeria with 4 yellows , If he receives one , He’ll miss the Classico.

      • Diego S.
        November 7, 2010

        Forgot about Ceuta. My mistake.

    Anyone knows why the referee was so generous with cards today ?

  45. Tajh
    November 7, 2010

    Man i can’t wait for our derby!!!!!!!! Its always a fierce contest home and away!!!!!

    BTW I now noticed that we have the Catalonia Cup(only Cup we have not won under Pep) coming up…

    Might not be as important but I really wanna see unused youngsters I never had a chance to watch closely.

  46. Cluless(John)
    November 7, 2010

    Let’s sit piqué out for 2 gams, so he is in el clasico, then make sure he goes in strong on Greg Luganous (not dirty) in the 70th min of el clasico, when we are already up by 2 or 3 to clear his yellows.

  47. Humphrey Bogart
    November 7, 2010

    Thanks to Pique to give some tension for the last 20 minutes. I do not know what it is with this guy and handballs. Fantastic to see how the Villa/Messi partnership is growing and that Pedro may have his mojo back. So next Villareal, lets do to them what our B Team did to their B Team yesterday

  48. Humphrey Bogart
    November 7, 2010

    And shame on Patetico. Why do they bother to turn up? Do they not know what derby means? I mean Espanyol are nearly killing themselves against us and they can not be bothered to put any effort their derby.

    November 7, 2010

    I usually try to stay away from calling other teams nasty nicknames (EE, Pathetico), but that was…that was…PATHETIC!

    • Tajh
      November 7, 2010

      Well the match was closer than it was in years….Pathetico hit the post, had a penalty not called etc…..so I would say at least they had chances unlike in previous years when they would just roll over to EE….

      EE fans can easily say that Sevilla does the same to us every year and let us steam roll them…I guess its just La Liga, every team has THAT team….

      A team will however test Madrid soon enough (might be us to bring them back down to earth)..After next week they have run of Athletic Club wk12 (home), Barca wk13(Away), and Valencia wk14 (Home)…then Sevilla in wk 16…
      Plus UCL games in between-There’s no way in hell they can repeat the same lineup like they have been in all these high tensity games.

      I Just hope Sevilla takes points off them like they did last year.

      Why?

        Because I’m classy like that.

        November 7, 2010

        Disagree on you not calling them “names”.

        It’s not insulting if it’s fact 😀

    Do red card bans from La Liga apply to the Copa? I was under the impression they didn’t. I think Pique is definitely out for Villareal, and will still have to worry about being on four yellows if he plays agains Almeria.

    I say rest him for the two games so he is guaranteed for El Clasico. Pep has been doing a pretty good job of giving players rest (better than previous years) and maybe it’s time for Pique to have one.
