Aftermath of the Barcelona vs Real Madrid Clasico

Posted on 27 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

As with every Clasico, it’s quite interesting just to sift through the comments after the match. Class is never a big part of what we see going on, as Real Madrid players constantly talk about the penalty kick not given to them after Javier Mascherano fouled Cristiano Ronaldo, while the Barcelona side ignores those claims and prefers talking about the wonderful goal Alexis Sanchez scored.

Real Madrid – Cristiano Ronaldo Needs to Finish Better

Posted on 20 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

It might be absurd to ask Cristiano Ronaldo, already scoring 8 league goals this season, to do a better job at finishing than he has so far, but Real Madrid seem to be so bad this season when it comes to finishing the chances they are able to create, be it Alvaro Morata or Karim Benzema in the starting lineup, it once again falls on the shoulder of their best player.

Posted on 13 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

Three things Cristiano Ronaldo did wrong in the Portugal draw with Israell: He had a terrible match, hardly being a threat at goal; he tried to kick an Israeli player in the head, lucky not to be sent off; and he managed to get booked on purpose in order to miss the match against Luxembourg, so he’ll be available with a clean slate for the two playoff matches.

Posted on 11 Oct, 2013, by in Soccer

It’s very important for Cristiano Ronaldo to be recognized as the best footballer in the world, especially by his own teammates and other levels of Real Madrid management.
