This. One trick pony.

SAF in Camp Nou, I hope that he enjoys the show. Since the result vs Barcelona and Man United was the same It's possible that Real plays in a similar way both games.

He is one dimensional and has no right foot, but that one dimension is still pretty damn good, and defenders still struggle to handle him, despite knowing what he is going to do.

He has proven himself in 4 different leagues in Holland, England, Spain and Germany which is very impressive.

He was a major contributor to Chelsea's success in 2004/2005 when they won the EPL with a record points total (most of their creativity that season came from him), and in 2008/2009 when Real Madrid were very bad for their standards, he played very well and a lot of RM fans were sorry to see him leave. For Bayern his goal-scoring record has been very impressive although he is selfish and doesn't create as many goals any more.

In the second leg of the RM-Bayern CL semi-final at the Bernabeu last year, he was absolutely brilliant.

That being said I do think that Bale is the more talented player of the two. Of course it is ridiculous to compare Bale to Messi or Ronaldo like a few people in the media have, but a Bale-Robben comparison is more appropriate I think.

Re: Football Zone

Hala!

Great move by CR7, great penalty. Although that Barca free kick before that, I think Messi was inside the box was he not?

No, just on the edge I think.

Poor challenge by Piqué, Barca started the match really well but fell back a bit and was punished.

We've come back from behind against Real plenty of times, luckily there's a lot left in this match.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

He didn't score in the 1st leg at the Bernabeu, so his run was stopped at 6 consecutive Clasicos with a goal. That is still a record though.

He has also scored in 5 consecutive international major tournaments from Euro 2004 to Euro 2012 (there can't be too many players in history that have done that), and has won the golden boot in both the EPL and La Liga. What a player.

You wish. Last game, 1-1, Varane goal, so, no.

Agree. But not as good as Giggs in his prime.

Let me guess, Man United fans?

By the way, Barça missing a real coach, this Mickey Mouse coach isn't good enough.
