I think he's been rested for this weekend. Can see us deploying him to harass Iniesta and create- no world on Bale's form for the weekend :/

After yesterday's battle, I hope we have something left.

In my head, I'm like is he going to play Morata, James, Isco etc.... then I'm like, ****...maybe no lol....

Danilo is going to play I'm sure. We're going to be winded in the back, its natural.

Real denied a clear penalty early in El Clasico.

Just a hint of offside about that goal...

1-0 to Real.

edit: 1-1, Messi equalises!

That match had everything. A few things:

- Is Isco banging Zidane's sister or something? What does he have to do to play?
- Both goalkeepers were absolutely amazing, some tremendous saves at both ends
- Messi had some teeth knocked out by Marcelo's elbow but still played on like nothing happened, and scored two goals like a boss. Respect
- There could easily have been a few sendings off in this match, Clasico never fails to deliver the fire
- Ramos was either going to score a late equaliser/winner or get sent off, of course it was the latter

I can't believe Ramos still does stupid things like a two foot challenge.
I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

Im wondering what needs to happen in order for Casemiro to be sent off
its two games in a row where he should have been sent off and ref does nothing, today it actually could ahve been sent off twice with a deserved yellow card, never happened.
Also dont get how Marcelo didnt get sent off too.

What a god damn game... helluva game... clean yet still feisty enough.

Bravo to Barca... did it without Neymar and Messi was being Messi. excellent response from him.

Both goalies saved this from being a basketball game.

Disappointed in CR7... blown opportunities despite the missed PK early on IMO.

James.... my man!

why Z put Kovacic in is beyond me... I haven't seen this guy play in weeks yet he gets put in... over Isco.... IN THE CLASICO??? wtF?!?!?? why am I putting blame to that, cuz that fool seriously was walking n standing when before Rakitic unleashed while unchallenged.... that a hole.

Think they put in Kovacic because the CM with the highest likelihood of remaining in a decent position to defend. Isco, as mercurial as he is, can't be relied on to provide positional defense. Would've preferred Isco start over Bale, and dropped back for a 4 man midfield. Oh well.

Hell of a match, and I get we wanted three points and have done it before, but with half a minute left on the clock and short a man, I still can't wrap my head around the decision to high press.
