[The following first appeared as a comment from SoccerMom in a long-ago BFB post. Since then, readers have requested repostings on various occasions. Well, kids, the Clásico might come late this year, but Santa’s arrived early!
This reprint is dedicated to our visiting Madriles, who have not been treated with the courtesy and respect on which the BFB community prides itself. Although the post is dated, my estimation of Moudrid has not depreciated. RM is playing at the top of its game recently — a game that relies on stalwart goalkeeping, physical defense, long midfield passes, quick counterattacks and psychological domination. The fact that the depth of your squad as well as your pockets makes your strategies cheap, your pace of play boring, your star striker delusional and your coach sociopathic — these are all personal opinions, and do not reflect those of other editors and/or the blog in general.
