Simple philosophy, but, when implemented to perfection, pretty much hypnotic! Sensational to watch!  :)

Yes, General, Barcelona are regaining their form.. They put Getafe to the sword - 6 goals through 6 different players - the last scored by Pique! Fun to watch Barca in the daytime! Real bullied Sevilla 4-1 as well; CR7 grabbing a hat-trick!

Big match coming up at the Bernabeu this week, ManUtd in town for the 1st leg of the CL QFs..  Which team do you fancy?

que pasa general propstoart.
 
well that is a tough question. sir alex ferguson is likely to have his troops ready. it should be one hell of a battle.
 
it is going to be televised here on the fox channel i will see if i can catch the action.
 
well real madrid is a tough assignment but i will go with sir alex`s troops.
 
 
how about you? are you seeing it the same way?

While, Man Utd are coasting towards the Premier League title, Madrid are lagging far behind in their defense of the Primera Liga championship..
Madrid have pinned all hopes of salvaging this season on capturing 'La Decima'!!
'The Special One' will have plotted Man Utd's defeat again, as he had done so many time, with Chelsea and Inter Milan.. I guess Real, with Cristiano firing on all cylinders, will win at the Bernabeu.. It will be a moral victory for United if they avoid defeat..

Manchester United - Real Madrid not all about Ronaldo, claims Evans   
   



   

"I am sure one or two of the lads have kept in contact and Nani was on international duty with him," Evans told the club's official website. "I don't know if he has spoken to anyone, but I am sure he is looking forward to the game as much as we are.

"But I don't think it is just about Cristiano Ronaldo. It goes back further. There is the history of the two clubs. It is the glamor tie of the round. Everyone is looking forward to it."

Evans also warned that despite boasting Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho's side contains several other players who could damage the Red Devils on Wednesday.

"They don't just have Cristiano Ronaldo who can hurt you," Evans said. "They have a lot of different players who can cause you problems. He will be the one everyone will be looking to as the man to stop and we have to make sure we keep him quiet."

Evans did take the time to hail Ronaldo's improvement since leaving United, even though the Madrid star won the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2008, when he was with the Manchester outfit.

Fair result for Man U. In my eyes they are the better team of two at the moment, hopefully they will edge it at Trafford.

The result seemed to do justice to the game, but Mourinho must be furious. Real had a hat-ful of chances, the run of the midfield, dominated the game, and still could not find a winner.

Credit is due to De Gea - the youngster was the difference between the teams.. Lopez, however, has some big games coming up, which might decide his long-term future at the club..

The 2 yellow cards to Van Persie and Valencia were poor decisions - Ramos went down like he was struck by a Predator drone!! Still, the Ref had a rep, Man Utd were forewarned..

Both goals were well taken - Wellbeck's star continues to rise, while Ronaldo cannot stop scoring!!

All square for the return leg in Manchester - I do not expect the away goals advantage United have now to be relevant in March, because Real will score in the return leg.. The question is - can Man Utd boss a game, against the best counter-attacking unit in the world, and win?

I dont think that Fergie will rush his lads to attack from the first minute and also I can expect somehow slow pace from both teams at least for a first half and real action in second. The only area where Real has real advantage is a defense. Evans is just simply not a half of quality that is Vida.  Anyway Man U still slight favorite in my eyes.

Leaving Totti unmarked so close to goal, invited punishment, and Juve was definitely pinged! It's not for nothing that Francesco is Roma's favorite son! Like Lampard, a true legend of the club.. Form is temporary, but class is...  ;-()

Anybody seen AC Milan play of late? Barca are away to Milan this week.. Things are getting heated up pretty quickly now.. Each match is like a final.. The Copa, the league and the Champions are all up for grabs..

Barca's defense in particular has been poor all season.. With Puyol, fit and in form, their backline is service-able.. Without their Capitan, Barca are regularly run ragged.. Against Granada, they struggled to impose themselves, and were 0-1 down at half-time..

No matter what the Barca hierarchy think, Mascherano is a midfielder - playing him in defense is attracting trouble.. Pique can lose focus from time to time; start thinking tiki-taka, when he should be defending his goal.. The wing-backs - Jordi Alba and Alves/ Adrian are average..

Most of all, Valdes is not the goalkeeper that can impose himself on the opposition. He does not make enough saves, or command the goal like a Cech or Buffon. However, in his defense, playing behind a back four of Pique, Mascherano, Alba and Alves can give any keeper a nervous breakdown, let alone one who has played so long in the Barca shirt..

Up front, the paucity of a reliable goal scorer, in the absence of Messi, is a serious headache.. If the opposition mark Leo, Iniesta, Xavi out of the game, the rest are not good enough to break down the opposition. Pedro and Sanchez are not proving not to be forwards, but midfielders.. Makes one wonder, do Barca need specialists at all, or are they a team of 11 midfielders.. Is this Total Footbal, Barca style..??
