El Clasic LiveBlog

By Kxevin

In my fantasy life, I’m a Barca-crazed contributor over at Barcelona Football Blog. In my real life, I’m a full-time journalist at the Chicago Tribune, based in Chicago, Illinois.

    “Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas admits it was difficult to beat Barcelona after red card to Raul Albiol”

    I know this is BS.com, but since when is drawing a team = to winning? Read what Casillas is actually saying, dude.

    Actually, it’s been a long time since I’ve acutally gone to there. It shows because I got a bit annoyed when I saw this: http://www.goal.com/en/news/12/spain/2011/04/17/2444215/jose-mourinho-figures-out-pep-guardiola-all-over-again-as

    I think the world has conveniently ignored EE essentially lost La Liga today.

    1. Oh, and I also forgot you can’t call them out on their bullsh*t, because they won’t publish your comments. Silly me.

    2. I love (actually I hate) how Mourinho loses or draws and he’s praised for his fine tactics and awesome gameplan.

      Mourinho has lost three times (with Inter 2-0 and 1-0 and with Madrid 5-0 in Camp Nou), drew twice (with Inter 0-0 in Meazza, with Madrid 1-1 in Bernabeu) and won once (3-1 with Inter in Meazza). If it was anyone else but Mourinho people would have said that is a terrible record.

      *Classico liveblog at Real.Offside is definitely not PG. I love (Make that I hate) how all of them Ignored and denied Villa’s penalty calling us divers and they say Marcelo’s was a clear penalty.

      *Kari, How do I do the scratch thing ?

    3. Same as how you do bold and itactics, but use “strike” instead of “b” or “i”. Like, [strike] [/strike] but with << and >> instead of [ and ]

  2. Good result. I wouldn’t have risked Puyol, but then again… like Kxevin says… I’m not the coach of the best team of the world. Many yellow cards for Barcelona as well… that is a sign that we had a difficult time.

    Now, going back to main topic: Villa. while I agree that he had a bad game… I seriously don’t get you people. If Villa doesn’t press and doesn’t track back you people bitch at him for not doing so… and when he does… you people bitch at him because “that’s not his job”. so, which is it, people?
