Alex has yet to fill out a bio.
Hey there! Long time no talk. How's it going? How've you been? How are you liking the team so far...
Hey Alex, thanks for the question and fan add!
In regards to Sami Khedira, he is very important to us. But this season, he hasn't been spectacular. I usually love his desire to do the "dirty work" and (as I like to say) bring the steel and industry into the midfield to free up Alonso. But this season, he keeps roaming forward and leaves space behind. And he isn't that productive up front, for that matter.
I don't think Illarra and Casemiro will help us deeper on. But I do think an Alonso-Modric (with some experimenting) could help.
I really don't want us to get anyone in January, as I think it will ruin our cohesiveness. But if I had to choose, I'll take Ilkay Gundogan.
Only if they show up tonight.
Hey Alex, I should have clarified that my list wasn't really in an order per say. I had Messi and Ronaldo as 1 and 2 because they are very clearly at the top, but the rest of those 8 are more or less not in any order.
Ahh, don't worry bro... It's just early morning dew - temporary. They'll go back there soon enough. We'll be back to our feet soon. :)
Alex, I think, to be honest, Javi Martinez was the one. But he's gone.
Alonso is hard to replace because he's a deep-lying playmaker with extraordinary defensive awareness. They're so rare.
Alright Alex, Penny for your thoughts on my latest article? Saw your name on a few of my critics' pages and thought you might like to contribute as a Madrid fan! Cheers.
Thanks so much for the fan add, Alex. :-)
Hey, thanks for the fan add. :)
Ok, that will do. Like I have mentioned before, I like debating and I try support any of my arguments. I know I have been too hard on Madrid and even disrespectful at times (like calling them "Moudrid". I meant it as a fun thing, but people took it the wrong way, hence I stopped). It doesn't bug me that you have been targeting my comments, but rather that you are saying false things like I never give Madrid any credit or that I fail to criticize Barcelona. That is simply not true and you could ask someone like Michael Cerna, but I wouldn't bother him with such a thing. Now, I can't promise that I won't deliver sharp criticisms in the future, but what I do guarantee is that I will try to be more respectful and thoughtful with my comments. And yes, I do love my Barca and have followed them long enough to display confident loyalty and decent knowledge. Unfortunately, some people have called me a bandwagon fan, too. Well, of course I am bandwagon fan; I jumped aboard during the Ronaldinho era. You have to start somewhere, especially if you are not from Barcelona and if you didn't "inherit" the team from your family. Yeah, I'm sorry to have provoked so many people.
