Good game although I was a bit suprised with the lineup. Only Raula nd Robben where up front but it actually seemed to work out very well for us. Also nice to see Ruud score after his long injury, won't post much else as I don't have any more time to post.

Keep crying Arnau, its like music to my ears. :innocent_smile_1:

OK, this whole pasillo business is getting to me. #1, I do not expect or would never "force" Barca to step aside and clap as we walked on to the pitch, in recognition of our title. It seems very weird to me. Just because you do not applaud the opposition doesn't mean you are going to war and this will get nasty or anything like taht. I mean, I'm all for fairplay and justice and sportsmanship, but this is too much. I would never want to applaud them either. Makes no sense. This whole football business is becoming a bit too sensitive and PC for my liking. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice "humiliation" for Barca but still, out of principle, I'd prefer they not clap and just keep the healthy animosity alive. Any thoughts?

Alright now I have a bit more time to post. Well its tradition though and it would be a new low in the eyes of everyone but most of all the media if they did not do it. Why should they not clap? I would expect us to do the same if we are in their position. Anyway Raul made is nicer for them as he shook everyones hand and we did not walk out in a single file line and all. Also hats off to Rikjaard for standing there and being the first to congratulate us as well as the players who stood and applauded us on.

As for the game, everyone was ******* amazing. Diarra was a monster both on the defence and offense, I don't remember him playing a game this good. This is the Diarra I would keep, if only he would play like this week in and week out. Marcelo also had his best game for us and owned both Messi and Zambrotta. Shame on VV for becoming Rivaldo x2 and trying to get him sent off by faking an injury, I'm glad he got a yellow card for that ****. One last note goes to Ramos for again being everyone, even on the LW:tongue: But today everyone played a really good game, it was an all around great team performance.

Soooo...fyi we tied Zaragoza 2-2 in a thrilling game where the team once again performed very well..I think we have found the pretty football that was spoken of for so long, at the very least we are playing some good stuff...special mention to Robihno..nicely done...and Guti and Sneijder once again...also Metzelder looked good..I think if he stays healthy he'll anchor the line with pepe....oh yeah Marcelo looked quality as well....and DUDEK! he was amazing today!..good job team!


ps. Its so nice knowing we got nothing to play for and we can just relax!

YELLOW CARD: Untrustworthy
^^ Indeed it is. By the way, maybe I'm a bit late and all. But will madrid have a celebration for the fans were they drive through a street from one point to another showing of the title, or was that done already?? And I'm not talking about the drive from the stadium to La Cibeles

YELLOW CARD: Untrustworthy
^^ Indeed it has :D

Anyhow I have been following the current events leading up for the Final game. Don't know how many of you guys are aware of what is going on so here's a quick summary.

Madrid may end up playing against a Portuguese or English team in the Final game, according to some comments made by Calderon in a radio interview. The Reason?? Levante players and staff are currently owed up to 14mil euros, and have already gone on strike. This means that they may show up to the Bernabeu, but not play at all. It is an unfortunate turn for events surrounding the Levante team, but a game will have to be played before the celebrations. And I personally wouldn't blame them if they actually went forward with their strike. Levante has already received the backing of the majority of La Liga teams, and Madrid players have also expressed their support.

Listening to some of the Levante players talk in the radio interview, it is sad what they are going through, because you know that it is their Job and what they do to survive.Having to show up and not get paid is much worse because you don't know what will happen next. Some of the players are being forced to sell their cars, take loans from their homes, borrow money from friends and families. Well the list is long.

As a madrid fan, I will be looking forward to the celebrations after the games. But at the same time, I hope the Levante players get paid their dues and we have game against them and not someone from another league..

HALA MADRID!!

Indeed it is a bad situation to be in and I have herad the story going on for a while now. I think we even offered to pay Levante to play..but anyway it seems like they wont want to play as they are on strike and so we might play some other team to make up for the game as celebrations will continue as planned. I hope for the best for Levante.

Like the kit fellas I like the kit, it is an instant classic IMO...the away one is probably black! nice...

anyway...yes sad situation in Levante and the worst part is that the banks wont lend them money....so sad...

I am also looking forward to the celebrations, I have already decided that if we win the champions next year I am going to the Cibeles to celebrate, I am already planning the trip!!!....anyway, its fun being this relaxed late in the season, I wouldnt mind it at all if it continued for the next few years...

Hala Madrid!!

The new kits look awsome, I am getting one for sure. Nice way to end the season, Wesley scored an amzing goal and Guti with a great assist for the second goal. I also can't believe that him and Raul will miss the Euro, they should be there for sure.

Also guys I heard that we have signed Garay from Racing:33vff3o::biggrinx:Now the only thing left is if we have him join us this season or loan him out again to Racing for 1 more season. If this is true than this is great news for us, no its actually fantastic news for us. I have also read that we are trying to get Martín Cáceres aswell and the only reason we are not doing so is becuase Villarreal are asking for DLR and we dont want to transfer him out, hmm lets see how this all plays out.

Fantastic kit, fantastic end of the season, i dont know about you guys but it seems we hit our stride late...if it is a preview of how we are supposed to be playing in a consistent basis then we look extremely good, I wouldnt put it beyond us to walk out with three Ligas in a row....

Thank you fellas for a great season, and also thank you Barca fans for keeping it interesting here on the boards, this thread will be closing soon and so we bid adieu to a pretty good season, next year A Por la decima!

Hala Madrid!
Congratulations Madridistas!
