La Liga - Week 10 Fixtures - 26th-28th October 2018

Recommended Posts

Lopetegui will surely be sacked now. Florentino would’ve done it a few games back but Lopetegui had powerful validators in the board room that the president trusts.

In truth this has very little to do with Lopetegui and even the players have said so on numerous occasions but that’s the way the cookie crumbles at this level.

Lovely to see Courtwat get spanked. Real appointing Conte will be the icing on the cake.

All the fixtures coming up now before Messi returns are winnable(the away fixture against Inter being a difficult one though) and then he will be back in time for Atletico away, who will likely be the strongest challenger this season.

It just goes to show how cup football goes... The question put on this thread on how Barcelona have dominated Real 90% for over 15 years and yet Real managed to trabslate it in the Champions League.

AS reporting that Julen Lopetegui will be sacked anytime from this evening to tomorrow morning and that Antonio Conte will be taking over.

What’s not clear is when Conte will take the hot seat at Real Madrid and whether RM Castilla head coach Santiago Solari will sit in until the end of the season.

I don't know much about the Madrid manager. But I looked it up and he has won 2 youth tournaments with Spain but not won anything at senior level even at Porto who normally win something in Portugal. Seems like a bit of an odd choice even though he was Spain manager. I suppose zidane hadn't even coached before but he was a club legend and clearly they thought he could do a good job.

Apparently Ramos has said Conte won't automatically get respect. I'd love to see him come in and bench Ramos

That’s 8 times Barça have ended a Clásico scoring 5 goals.

That needs updating, as Alaves won in the end and are now in second on 20 points!

Sevilla now in with a chance of going third if they can beat Huesca.

Do you mean you want conte to take over because you think he will do a good job or that you want him to take over because you think he will do a bad job?

@Cicero did say before the season started that he expected a totally disastrous season for Real. Considering how bad it was domestically last season, I thought that was difficult, but this is proper bad!

Maybe they’ll win the Champions League again though and make it look like they’re really the best.

The same as Spurs being in Middlesex. :ph34r:

Getafe arent in the capital and right just outside it but they are officially a club from the region of Madrid.

Hazard is yet to sign a contract extension with us amid the Real Madrid rumors. Conte becomes Real's next manager, no way does he leave for them.

The greatest piece of business done at club level when considering the particular requirements of a team ever!

Barcelona have always relied on their organic growth of this type of player throughout history and nobody ever thought that a player of this nature could ever come from outside La Masia.  But it happened and the signing not only so necessary, but excellently executed!  Who needs marketing purchases when you can bring in such brilliance!

€40m (almost £36m) in today's market is a COUP!

Very talented midfielder and a very good looking stud. :x

He is a good looking young man isn't he" xD

Yesterday would've scared most players for the first time participating in El Clásico because of all the pressure surrounding it. But more so in this case because of how fundamental that particular position is when considering how Barça function.  He has been absolutely astounding during this period of high profile games with such importance.

"One YouTube comment sums it up perfectly: "I've come from the future Julen. Things don't work out well for you." 

The message lies beneath a 16 May interview on popular Spanish chat show La Resistencia, in which Julen Lopetegui is feted for his impressive work in charge of a Spain team that, back then, was about to light up the World Cup.

 

Barcelona 5-1 Real Madrid: Julen Lopetegui hits rock bottom in Clasico

One YouTube comment sums it up perfectly: "I've come from the future Julen. Things don't work out well for you."

The message lies beneath a 16 May interview on popular Spanish chat show La Resistencia, in which Julen Lopetegui is feted for his impressive work in charge of a Spain team that, back then, was about to light up the World Cup.

Today he is the Real Madrid boss, but most likely for not much longer. After Sunday's humiliating 5-1 defeat by Barcelona, Lopetegui appears set to be sacked for the second time in four months.
