Default Real Madrid playing like crap

Don't know why but the first half was garbage from everyone.

CR7 hasn't been the same since Champions League match.

It seems that there are problems between some players and Mourinho. Real Madrid is a team filled with individualistic players, and Mou style is ugly to watch, but last year was excellent defending, and counterattacking. And they played each game with energy and moments of brilliance.


But this year the team show indifference and apathy. They seem in bad shape, and powerless. Mourinho time concludes.

Game just ended and Real Madrid lost.

They got Kaka playing on the left side. When Kaka wasn't playing, Ronaldo plays the left side and proved to be highly effective.

It was just an ugly game today from the players. No chemistry or teamwork.

Just a lot of kicking around.

How is Modric playing? I thought he would thrive on that squad.

He's ok but I rather have Ozil in there.

If I'm not mistaken those two split playing time. Modric was playing when Ozil was hurt a couple of games ago.

To be fair Ronaldo was playing out of position. Don't ask why....they have Kaka in his Ronaldo's most effective position.

Real Madrid is a very good team when they are clicking but today's game was just horrible.

It should have been a tie game but Casillas was fooled. Actually it was an incredible shot by the Betis' player. Forgot who scored.

The only thing saving this season is if Real Madrid wins Champions League.

Two legit Benzema goals disallowed.

But yes we are playing horribly, and it's more Mourinhio than any of the players. Never took the time to build a team attacking philosophy and prefers to run the team through the senseless wingers rather than creative talents.

Ronaldo pretty much is the offense.

Kick to Ronaldo and let him shoot or create. That's pretty much the attack and if he's your only offense why have him play center today?

Pretty bad for someone that's suppose to be Phil Jackson of soccer.

As good as Ronaldo is, he's pretty much one dimensional.

It's just that one thing he does, he's very good at it.

His game has some flaws and it showed today.

Actually take a look at it again when you get the chance. He was at least a yard onside for the 2ng goal. The first one is perhaps debatable but he certainly wasn't definitively offside.

Nonetheless I'm not blaming the linesman.

@Kobe fan.

Ronaldo in no way or form should be monopolizing our attack. I always wonder how can you have a player as talented, intelligent and willing to make the right decision as Benzema play so off the ball that he has no influence on the game.

Mourinhio prefers to attack with pace so he doesn't have to face the reality of breaking down defenses. So he doesn't bother to ask artists like Benzema and Ozil cultivate attacks.

Rather Ronaldo and Di maria take shots or try miracle passes/crosses.

I notice that alot of your posts you seem to glorify Benzema and criticize Ronaldo. I think Benzema is a great player but he drifts back too much and he plays like a supporting striker or a winger rather than a pure forward. But I do think Benzema is class and I think he should play as a right winger instead of Di Maria.

I think the problem with Madrid is that they are too reliant on Ronaldo.. Just look at his production from a winger, 50 some goals with 10+ assits is great from a winger. Although this is probably because they are built around him

I also don't like how Mourinho keeps on playing a defensive minded midfielder like Khedira or in the beginning of the year Diarra next to Alonso. I don't understand why not just play Modric next to Alonso but instead he seems to swap Ozil for Modric or vice versa.
I think they should play with something like this in the final 2/3
Ronaldo-Higuian-Benzema
--------Ozil----Modric
------------Alonso
