    Flamengo used to have a GK that the fans nicknamed "alligator arm", but this guy lives up to the literal definition of that.

    I see Judas is playing. Loftus-Cheek? I may need to see the highlights later. Cuadrado couldn't get a start over Remy?

    No, no. I won't wear generic club stuff, just a jersey of a BRAZILIAN (a Judas doesn't count) player. I just happened to focus on Chelsea because they have a sizable Brazilian contingent and they were the only club in the last 8 year to complicate things for Ferguson's United.

    Yeah, Cuadrado has played, but sparingly. I expected to see him start today after the title was wrapped up. I'm curious to see how he fits in their plans moving forward.

    Those 5 more goals in La Liga are penalties. Griezmann doesn't take Atletico's pens (though he really should). Griezmann was also only a starter in 28 games.

    You guys call Diego Costa Judas? That's hilarious.

    Judas scored nearly as much as CR7 and Messi. There weren't any other players with even 20 goals last year. And to say Griezmann isn't a forward is a joke when Atletico plays with two of them for most of the season, Grizemann being one of them. Judas also brought a lot more to the team than just goals. He was the perfect player for Simeone's system.

    And yes @Pandore , we call him Judas. Well, at least I do :D

    By the way, Willian has been great the second half of the season. You should start him at the Copa with Oscar out.

    I totally agree cause Coutinho isnt cut out to do it!! He wears the no. 10 for Liverpool, but he's not there to do that role for Brazil!!! Willian's form for us has been good so I dont doubt he will start!!

    He has been a starter so far under Dunga. I like Willian but wish his game translated to more goals and assist.

    On one hand, the carnage and the incomprehensible press conferences would be amazing, but I also have a soft spot for Real (who have fielded some of my favorite players), so I hope not. Firing Carlo was a stupid decision.

    Unfortunately Rafa has a history of taking a pretty well built team to glory the year he takes over.
