I wanted to post my thoughts on Real Madrid. It didn't really fit in one particular thread so I thought I'd start this one.Anything and everything Real Madrid related (thoughts) can be posted here. A good dumping place for misplaced posts too. Let's start with the obvious man of the hour: Benzema. His current form is simply ridiculous. I must admit I never thought he had it in him. I knew he had some of that, but what he's showing now is just downright frightening. Ozil is still not a 90 minute player, his fitness levels have been on a steady rise so no worries there. Ronaldo... well I guess it's different when I say it , but yes he's a brat when he's not doing well. I've said it before, and I'll say it again until I see a change of character. Others who have impressed me : Marcelo(is it too early to say I don't miss Roberto Carlos all that much), Ramos ( changed man under Mourinho) Carvalho ( consistently reliable) Pepe ( Oh my goodness is he fast) Xabi ( the metronome to our pace) and finally Casillas ( I thought Casillas was losing his mantle to Neuer... boy was I wrong) So .. yeah I'll admit: I'm positive again. 5-0 still burns a lot, but Barcelona still need to play us at home and we all know what that means. Player of the season so far : Xabi Alonso Most improved : Benzema Best signing : Ozil Worst signing: Pedro Leon ( due to Mourinho's lack of playing time) Those were all my random thoughts... you can kill the thread now.
