I'd line your team up like this

--------------Casillas

Cicinho---Ramos----Cannavaro----Torres

------------Diarra

----------------Guti
Robinho--------------------Sneijder

----------D.Milito or someone else to help Ruud
-------------------RvN


- I don't know what the situation is on Cicinho, but if you sell him, I think it's a mistake. He's definitely Madrid material.
- I'd play with Ramos and Cannavaro because Pepe seems to be making too many mistakes and he's a dirty player. He should fight for his place in the team, not win it automatically.
- Torres should be your LB, IMO. He's better there than Drenthe and he has more experience than Marcelo.
- Guti has to help Diarra in defensive duties. If he's having a bad day, change him for Drenthe, and just have Sneijder and Drenthe switch positions so that the former is the CM and the latter is the LW
- RvN shouldn't play up there alone so he'd need a backup striker to set him up and draw defenders away. This is Saviola's natural position but I don't think you want him in your first team.

Of course, this line-up is highly unlikely to happen because Cicinho is going, Pepe must play because of his price tag, Schuster seems to want Drenthe at LW and Raul is very hard to bench.

funny how higuain isnt in any of ure plans. has he disappeared this season?
we need to bench raul and bench guti imo. sneijder central, diarra holding. higuain/drenthe/robinho or even marcelo down the wings
then saviola supporting ruud.

i think if baptista was to play as a striker it would be as the target man with a support striker behind him. he doest really have the creative mind that goes with being a SS like robinho or saviola. he is more of a powerhouse that will bulldoze his way through the defense. gotta love him, BEAST!

nobody is mentioning Higuain because he is injured, that is just what it is at least for me....Like I said I dont think we need anybody else...

Also on further news

-Emerson gone to Milan for 5M Euro's YAY! (never really liked him)

-Another tv station in Spain is reporting that Madrid are not going after Milito, they are going after Robben and that is it...I will tell you this, anything Marca puts out has to be taken with a more than just a grain of salt....they suck!
So until something official comes out we can all be on standby

YELLOW CARD: Untrustworthy
I see post and hear announcers were they say that Raul should be benched, Unfortunately, as last season proved. No matter If Raul is played like SH*T, he will always be on the field. you may not like it, an throw everything near you at the tele, but that seems to be a given. hopefully there is a change this season and he is benched if he is playing bad.

Unfortunatly we havent had anybody man enough (coach wise) to sit Raul......but I believe the popular pressure will be such that he will have to sit...the problem is that if Raul scores one or two in a game all of the sudden he is god again, and that is simply not the case.....
When he retires I will be the first to stand up and thank Him he has been a legend (at times Madrid was Called Raul Madrid) but it is time to sit and he needs to recognize that....and so does Schuster

baptista is the best 2on stiker of madrid
i think thats is higauin, he still needs to work on his finishing, baptista is probably 4th choice at that position.


great news on emerson, he never really fitted in spain, great player but italy suits him well.

i bet as soon as his foot touches italian soil he will start badmouthing us.

Cicinho would be Madrid material if he could defend but he leaves us exposed way too much so no he is not starting material.

Pepe making too many mistakes? How many matches have you seen of him? So far he has been a better CB than anyone else ( bar Ramos who will be our RB because he is the best RB on our team...otherwise I would like to see him in the middle aswel ). I think he has won it, he has done better than everyone else in defence and we did buy him to start not to be a sub or sit the bench. It's not like you guys bough Yaya or Abidal to sit the bench did you?

Torres is a good defender ( unless he is up against a fast and skillful RW ) but he is weak going forward and Marcelo has looked better than him so far and guess what he can defend and attack.

Guti has never really been a good CM, just a good AM with his passes and creativity. I mean he usually gets a yellow because he can't taclke and is not th best defender. Not to mention we can't tell which Guti will be playing, he is so damn inconsistant.

I want Saviola in the first team. As our squad looks right now here is how I would lineup -

----------Casillas----------
Ramos--Pepe--Canna--Marcelo
-----------Diarra------------
Robinho---Sneijder----Drenthe
--------Ruud---Saviola------

And I would not give so much freedom to let the players do as they wish, Robinho needs to stick to the wing and help Ramos. Sneijder needs to help our Diarra and Drenthe should also stick to the wing and help our Torres. If we get Robben than my only chagne would be to bench Drenthe for him.

Backup team
---------Dudek--------
Cicinho--Metz--??--Torres
----------Gago-----------
Higuain---Guti---------??
-----Soldado--Saviola---

It's a good thing that we have players in defence who are versatile so if we need others can play CB too ( like Torres, Pepe can play RB and so can Metz ). Left wing is short at the moment but if we get Robben than it's all good. Also if we sell Cicinho than we buy a RB or a LB and move Torres to RB.

Also no thanks to D. Milito, we are already covered there. Just more BS rumors after our loss to Sevilla to try and sell papers.

The rumors look somewhat serious socrates...but either way I believe We are going after Robben and that's it...I hope that deal happens it is ridiculous what Chelsea are doing seriously.....but if he did not come, I like your lineup

Yeah I'v read that too. 12 mil. If its true (and I think it is, because of the panic)then it would be a very good buy and it would make our team even better.

There are also some rumours that we are using Cicinho to get Robben. The deal would be 20mil+Cicinho for Robben. So that comes to like 30 mil. What do you guys think?!

EDIT: PURE MADNESS!! According to AS we offered 42(!!!!) mil for Dani Alves. MADNESS!! IMPOSSIBLE! I hope this isnt true. He is one of the best, maybe the best, RB in the world, but 42 mil. We payed that sort of amount for Ronaldo. This cant be good. Is this panic?! Weird! (on the other side, if this is true, then we would grab the player in front of the nose of those Chelsea BASTARDS! and really I would love to do that)

why are we even trying to get him, i prefer ramos in that position.

if we are looking for a RB, why didnt we keep diogo?

if we end up getting alves for that amount of money, the dicision to let diogo go to zaragoza will look even more stupid, he wouldnt of cost us anything, ok maybe he isnt as good as alves but he isnt that far away from him.

who cares about chelsea, we cant be competing against them just to piss them off, we have our own things to worry about.

please dont get hienze, he is a left back version of salgado, he used to be quality but since his injury he isnt the same, we have marcelo who is much better then torres and hienze but needs time to adapt, in the mean time we can use tores who is solid he doesnt get forward as much but he does the job never the less.

Diogo is far away from Alves quality. Yes Ramos is a fantastic RB so we shouldnt go after Alves. But to say that Marcelo is ALOT better then Torres and Heinze is stupid. He has the talent to be alot better then both, but he isnt as good as Heinze atm. Heinze is alot more experienced and is a quality player. I would love to see Marcelo though. He impressed me this pre-season. We will see what happens. I guess that next week we are gonna make one BIG money signing and then its done. I hope and think we wont get Alves (even if he s world class) and I hope that we can finally get Robben, because he is better then Drenthe by a large distance. Drenthe can be his back-up.

No the As report doesnt say that we are offering 42 mill it just says that Del Nido is asking for 42 million but we are not willing to go past 25 plus Cicihno....but that is still up in the air....I think the whole milito thing is a rumor..........

I still believe it will be Robben or else....I dont really want Heinze either, althought you could argue that we need him....we will see

How come no one rates Metze higher than Pepe? The only game i saw him play against Sevilla he was horrible and even got red carded.

Heinze could be a real Madrid Player Officially!!(:/)

So we pay 12M for a 30 year old, and we had 6 months to look for a replacement for Roberto Carlos and we didnt, this is the best we can come up with...im dissapointed....we needed Him no doubt but still...If we wanted to boot Robbie for Marcelo then we should let marcelo play.....

I dont get our front office, but if he comes Welcome Heinze


Edit: COnflicting reports, AS is saying Heinze is denying any contacts with Real Madrid
Edit2: Now Marca has it as official even thought nobody else doesl...I think this is another Marca lie

metze is good.. but he hasnt shown the leadership a madrid defender needs...
he started really slow but has been playing better as he gets to know the team...(he is basically adapting right now)
if pepe ****s up too much then metze could start

heinze is a LB version of salgado. so true. god thats funny. i live in England watched him week in week out for man utd. and i dont like him, marcelo over heinze anyday. marcelo could bomb forward as LB then ramos tucks into CB from RB when he does.
