Barca! The unbeatable Baca! And Messi is coming to India! Will surely try to see him!
Oh yes, that a win for Liverpool!
Liverpool beats Arsenal by 2 goals to nil.
a lovely team goal finished by Suarez to finish off the game after an own goal made it 1 - 0.
with Fabregas gone, Nasri about to step out, Koscielny injured today, Two men sent off in two games, an own goal! what else can go wrong with a team!!
really happy from Liverpool!!!
What a fuc*** great start to the season for arseal eh??,,,
The liverpool guy was offside though for the first goal, call me a whiner if you want. A sh**load of injuries in the third game of the season.!!!!,,,Sorry for the language, i am just so pis*** off at the red card, before that red, we were in control, Vermaelen had Caroll in his pocket, Frimpong was doing well, Nasri was decent. Except Szczesny and Vermaelen, and maybe Nasri, no body deserves a mention really. Sheer unluck for Arsenal. Wenger needs to buy a defender , playmaker and a fullback as backup ASAP!!!.
What stinking luck!!!

WTF happened to Koscielny??,,,the man could barely walk straight!!
I can't even imagine Arsenal fans frustration ... What the hell is Wenger really doing????????? There are still 10 days and Arsenal fans should make their frustration heard coz clearly ur professor has completely lost it ... If im not wrong, Arsenal stadium tickets are the most expensive in EPL and what are they paying it for ... to watch some teenagers train ??? Udinese will not be a walkover in their own stadium and if Arsenal fail to even qualify for champions league and Nasri leaves as well than you can only guess the confidence blow it will have on the remaining players ... season will be over before it even begins .....

moreover, the off-side contrversy was not for first goal, it was an own goal and all liverpool players were on side when ball was played. it was in scond goal move when suraez was initially off-side but still came on side before the ball was finally played to him for a goal!!
anyways, i feel for Arsenal, they have got, as the commentator said, a whole catalog of problems at start of this season!!
And tackling is one thing but delibrately injuring is much worse.Mourinho tries to do it everytime against Barca and thats why Barca try to over-react lest someone loses a career because of a bad tackle.
Hey how come this thread has reached 4 pages without me being involved in it. Brother Zizou, glad to have a fellow Madridista here...
Yes we got beaten last year however in both legs of Supercopa this year we were at par with Barca. The first leg they drew curtesy a Villa fluke and a Messi lucky richochet while we wasted glorious opportunities to take the tie away from them. The 2nd leg would always have been nearly impossible to win with Barca playing with 14 on the pitch (Including 1 Referee and 2 linesmen) and yet if you take Messi out of the match Barca did nothing and it could so easily have been 3-3 had we taken our chaces. I expect much tighter classicos this time around and feel that Mourinho will come good on his promise of better results in the 2nd season.
But why is it that the issues crop up only when we play Mourinho's teams?This issue didn't come up against Del Bosque/Juande Ramos/Capello/Schuster/Pellegrini?
why is there always a problem when it comes to teams coached by Mourinho?Because he delibrately asks his players to cross a line and try to injure Barcelona's players and that is why there is a problem.
There are people like Busquets and Alves who go down a little more than they should be but there are divers in Real Madrid too.
And the kind of tackles,i have seen from Alonso,Khedira,Pepe,Ramos and Marcelo,they deserve to be sent off in every game.
I play CB too myself and i know what is a tough tackle and what is a injury intentioned tackle and there is a clear line and every football players knows not to cross it.
This freedom that Mourinho gave your team is an old tactic of his which he tried to injure Messi with Del Horno.
I dont like the dives but if it means we can save our player's career,i am all for it.
Being a Real Madrid fan,it is funny you complain about refreeing having been the nephew of the establishment for all the time and is still a much favoured club of the capital region.
Villa Fluke?How come Cristiano/Higuain/Di Maria never have flukes?Perhaps they should shoot more.I wish i can fluke that easily,perhaps that Zidane's volley in 2002 was also a fluke?Many of Raul's winners in tight situations were also flukes?Roberto Carlos' FKs definitely shud be flukes.
Messi didn't have a richochet,he has scored too many goals against you and too many great goals against everyone and this time he got half a chance and he beat both Khedira and Pepe and also Casillas who had all the time to make a judgement and save it.
The thing is this time you played well but Barca is still not fit enough and in pre season whereas you guys are much better off having had a full preseason.Let us see what happens this season.
But one thing,this Supercopa has fired up the tempo of our team and even if they had been lazy before,they are going to be crazy motivated now.
what decisions in the 2nd leg did u find against you?I dont remember any?
This issue comes up every time with Mourinho because everyone from your president, players, press and fans are so obsessed with Mourinho that a lot of unnecessary tension is created even before the match starts and Mourinho is obviously not someone who will shy away from controversies ... Mourinho became your enemy number one when he shattered your dream of lifting champions league trophy in Bernabeau ...
I have watched almost every match of Madrid for last 13 years and i will admit that the way some Madrid players are having a go at some of Barca players is not something one can associate with Madrid but quite honestly after seeing their theatrics for last 3 years, if i was on field i would make sure that if i am to get red card any way, at least i kick the crap out of that @#$%^% ... The only player in current Madrid side who always plays like this is Pepe and it has nothing to do with Mourinho in fact he is much less aggressive under Mourinho ...
After first leg, many starting 11 were missing ... and when u have starting 11 except Puyol than you were not fit enough ... Yes, Madrid were in better physical condition but even less fit barca would have thrash fully fit Madrid this time last year ... Fact is Madrid has improved a lot and Mourinho did tactically outclassed Pep in both legs ... Barcelona has just one way of playing and Mourinho seems to have found a way to counter it whereas Madrid is much more versatile and dynamic and can play in several ways ... The only thing saving Barca is exception talent of Messi and he is the only difference ... Without Messi, Madrid will beat Barca 7 out of 10 times ....
Barca will be better in December but mark my words, when Sahin is back ... With a midfield of Sahin, Alonso, Coentrao behind Ozil, Benzema and CR7, world will see relentless and breathless football never seen before ... We will take entertainment to whole new level .... just wait and see
