    i was just thinking how ive seen raul bravo play at CB a few times this season, particularly at highbury against arsenal in the UCL this season, i thought he did a good job, while all u guys talk about looking for a new CB what do people think about playing raul bravo at CB for a while and see how he goes?

    he is not a bad LB but i dont think he is of "real madrid" class...

    from what i have been told he has played at CB before for madrid, particularly under carlos quieroz, is this true and how did he go madrid fans?

    His performances were decent at best but he is still prone to making defensive errors. But he usually ends up covering up those errors with his pace.That said i think hes a good back up player and we should still go after another CB.

    Has had his best season with us this year however his inability to use his right leg is worse than Beckhams inability to use his left. His decision making is questionable and as dooda says he is still prone to one or two errors per game. probably the 4th or 5th best CB at the club and the fact that we are sitting here discussing him as a Real Madrid player is probably a reflection of the state this club is in.
    .....I think he's a better LB than CB anyway.

    Mejia is much better than him and is showing that everyday.

    I've been pleased with Mejia's performance recently and I agree that Bravo does better at LB, in fact I wish he'd start over Carlos. The three of them (Ramos, Mejia, and Bravo) seem to work well together.

    Creating plays is much harder than just destroying them.

    i dont think Raul Bravo will ever score even ten percent of how many goals Carlos has scored to help us in difficult situations.

    People thought he would become a great cb around 5 seasons ago. He was big and fast. What else can you do wrong with such assets? Then, three seasons ago, Carlos Quieroz started seriously ti use him as cb and he was not up to the task. He was so bad that we forgot how good he was at lb. Then Euro 2004 came.... I thought he was good playing as lb for Spain. Back to Rwal Madrid, he played a heck of a game againts Del piero last season in the CL. He completely took him out.

    Then he brilliantly assisted on Zalayeta's winning goal. Typical Raul Bravo performance. Inconsistent is his middle name.

    Raul Bravo played well in the 1st leg. He basically took Del Piero completely out of the game. redstriker06 was probably talking about the 2nd leg. I actually did not have impression of Bravo. Then, Ronaldo got a red card for kicking Blasi(?). At that point, I turned off the TV and never finished watching the game. Zalayeta scored and I never saw the replay.

    I think he may have meant whether he has dual citizenship, like Cicinho, who is Brazilian but has an Italian passport due to Grandfather clauses. I didn't think we used a EU spot on Diogo...are we? Or does he have some EU connection.
