imo its 50-50 for who takes the first place between madrid and city
I'm surprised you aren't saying Real will be eliminated totally. Aren't they the team that beat Barcelona in every major competition last year? Doesn't that make them pretty good?

Even though I believe Ronaldo was the best this year, I'm happy that Iniesta won this award. Something that will make his name more recognizable for the future generations.

So if they are 50-50 for first place with the English champions, that makes them bad now?

And as far as i remember, Chelsea is the team that beat Barca in CL, and they lost La Liga to some crappy teams because Pepe rotated the team every game, 34 different lineups in 38 games or something like that. They won once and lost once with Real last season. Won Copa del Rey. So what every major competition were you referring to?

What are the tmajor trophies for Barcelona? Be honest. Did Real not step on them in those things last year?

City did crappy in the Champions League last year, but now they are better than Real?

Questions
1) Does the Spanish League have a tournament like the FA Club? Did it start?
2) What is the FIFA Club World Cup?
3) This game Chelsea plays tomorrow (don't laugh at me), what is it? Is it CL winner vs. Europa League winner? Is it treated as important?

Did you even read what i see? Real did their job against the average teams in La Liga, Barca didnt.

City did crappy in CL last year, but in the end that looked pretty smart when they won EPL. And this year City is much better while Dortmund lost their best player. And when did i say City is better? You sure know how to write stuff out of your ass

Don't get irritated, you hate Real, you felt the need to write City would possibly be above them. If it was City/Barca, i doubt this thought would have crossed your mind and as far i see Barca/Real are about the same level.

You ALWAYS find a way to take a small shot at Real. That's ok, hate is good.

you mean fa cup? they do and barca won it, its called copa del rey. but unlike england there is only one cup like that in spain

that is basically when the champions from every continent play against each other, usually the european champions and south american champ play in the final. semi important

again, semi important, both teams will bring it on for sure

The club teams World Cup and early season awards like the Supercup aren't taken seriously at all. They are glorified exhibition matches.

well i would say the underdog always plays harder, the favourite might experiment and play some of their reserves
