A Look Ahead at EL CLASICO

Anyone that says La Liga is too slow is an idiot. Somehow long ball after long ball qualifies as a fast game. Maybe a bulldog running as fast as he can is considered high pressure and I guess if you give him the ball you can consider it nice possession. Can’t do much when someone sprays you a long ball and you have to chase it straight out of bounds. No wonder Fabio Capello is struggling, he has a back line that can’t pass shorter than 30 yards.

Just put your hands above your head and clap at these guys.

There isn’t a derby in the world that is in comparison to El Clasico. You want your stupid knee high tackles, they are here. You want blazing fast pace, it’s here too. The only thing that is different between this derby and the next is that unbelievable talent and skill of every players on the pitch. Find me a match where the ball and the players move this fast and we might have an argument. I hate hearing that the Tiki Taka style is useless. Nine-tenths of the law says it’s not.

Anyways, Barcelona signed one of the best strikers in the world even though they already had one of the most skilled. David Villa is the exact type of player they needed to run up front. He knows how to move off the ball, understands his teammates movements having played together on the national team, and is a more consistent finisher than Ibra. I expect Zlatan and The Sheikh Mansour to be talking sometime soon.

Not much else happened in the Catalan club, however the Bernabeu picked up the most hated, or loved (whoever you support), manager in the world right now. Regardless of your care for the guy, he is currently the most revered man to be confined by a small white box. Jose Mourinho is a genius and all I can guarantee is that you won’t see another 2-6 loss. Mourinho already has the most creative startingXI in the world and the addition of Ozil, Di Maria, Khedira, and even Carvalho will make the bench more dangerous.

On a separate note, I can’t believe Real just let Raul and Guti go so easily. The greatest goal scorer to wear the all white kit and arguably the best through ball passer to come through The Santiago Bernabeu. Two one-club players couldn’t even be given a chance to retire at their home soil. Perez is immorally desperate. Idiot.

Guardiola is a managerial prodigy, having won every possible trophy in his first year as the boss of the first team. The youngest manager to ever win the CL was exposed last season in the semifinal when he faced Mourinho and Inter. Outsmarted at both the Camp Nou and the San Siro, I expect Pep to be prepared this time around when they meet on Nov. 28th and April 17th.

If you value quality, get yourself in front of a television when the two teams meet. Don’t be an imbecile, you have nothing better to do on those Sundays anyways.
