Mourinho sits Casillas in favor of Adan because of a 'tactical' decision (probably just another discussion, egos involved between them both) and losses clearly to Malaga.

Dhunt - great CL, still alive in Copa del Rey and a pretty good La Liga with some ups and downs. Can't think of another team that can fight to be spains 4th best team (even if they don't finish in such spot)

Pellagrinis work has been lovely and similar to the one he implemented at Villarreal, with the difference there has been a lot of money involved in this project but he has responded with his team playing at an excellent level.

Read a good article saying how sitting Casillas was the final drop for some Madrid players and how courageous was Mou by doing this. He knew some players would turn his back on him. Mentioned how Xabi Alonso created a lot of game not for Madrid but for Malaga and was a machine of giving away balls. Sergio Ramos did everything he could to get two yellows and get a red card. di Maria turned his back against Mou a long time ago and is as a false player as it gets. Finally Arbeloa was so bad thatCallejon, with one leg did a better job.

Now that I think about it, it is a completely true observation about the situation.

Hard to support Iker Casillas when he's been found out as the giving the juicy locker room problem stories to the press therefore making everything worse for the club..... I blame... Sara Carbonero.

Some changes need to be made in January!

OUT:

Xabi Alonso can leave. He's no longer the player he once was and it's been clear to see this season were and if he still is, it seems he quit on the team. Terrible.

Álvaro Arbeloa doesn't even have the quality to be a starting RB in Segunda Divison team, yet he starts for Madrid since Ramos moved to CB and Mourinho/Perez hates the youth. Buy a star RB then who won't ask for too much wages!

Ángel di María lacks support from Arbeloa, which causes him to work harder than he should. But, he can not stop giving the ball away. Either he takes the role of super sub or he can leave.

I don't know if it's Mourinho limiting Sami Khedira or Sami Khedira just being an average player, but Madrid needs a better CM/DM who can win the ball back and maintain possession. I feel he lacks his job on both.

And if he's honestly lost the team... than Mourinho as well. We can't buy an entire new 7 starting players (Ronaldo, Coentrão, Essien, and Pepe stay on the starting XI) which would be full of players who are in love with Mourinho especially in January.

Just as I'm thinking Malaga was playing well, they go and do that. Laughing

No idea what Camacho was thinking playing a back pass like that.

He's completely lost them. I don't actually think I'd want Mourinho to manage any of the teams I like, he's too destructive. That said I'd love United to get him over Moyes.

He wasn't, but 2 years at Inter and now a total collapse and revolt at Real doesn't speak well for his recent management. He'll have short term success but that's hardly what I'd want for my club given how he can't manage to stay for long and things don't ever continue at the same rate when he leaves, or as it is with Madrid even when he's still there.

Hard to believe he almost died a couple of years ago. A miracle he is playing today.

Unreal 1st half of the season. 55 points from 57.

Really happy Cesc's found his form. Also like how we've kind of started playing a 4-2-3-1 of sorts with Xavi playing deeper and Cesc further up. Iniesta has been great out on he left wing, especially linking up with Alba.

Love how vertical this Barcelona looks. One of their key virtues on that treble year and that kind of disappeared the next two seasons with Pep. Glad they somehow abandoned the constant sideways passing a bit and Tito decided for a more direct football.

Me too. Actually mentioned that in the General thread talking about Pep. We're honestly playing better attacking football under Tito than under Pep. That's a bit hard to imagine lol
