the handball call? Or the disallowed goal? Either way - yes.
a much better start today
oh no Vini
Mendy you boob
that was lovely
now sub out everyone
good god almighty Valverde is too good
Missed it all
I’m hoping to watch the replay yet tonight
Celtic were quite poor but they did a lot of good things and came out sharp for a change
and more importantly no one got hurt
I would like this very much
well this is a totally shit start
that's a penalty, albeit it pretty unnecessary
Things changed rather quickly…thank goodness
that's a great header from Militao
Such poor defending and clearance
jfc what horrific play from Mendy to start that dumb sequence
Courtios has to save that though
Carvajal you dipshit
thank god Courtios is there to save the day again
edit - lol give me a motherfucking break with this dumb shit
fuck that was the chance
have to get that on net there god damn
Asensio the only one who wasnt absolute dog shit today
Headed to the stadium for the match against Cadiz tonight. No idea what to expect.
insanely jealous, hopefully its a good atmosphere since its the last home match of the calendar year
need a much more impassioned effort today
that's a great strike
now pull as many of the WC guys as you can and get everyone out of their healthy
oh no Luka what in the world
bleh this team is just so fucking lackadaisical and totally shuts off too fucking often
no killer instinct whatsoever
How was it BP? Other than the half assed effort...
Full disclosure. I’m not a huge soccer fan. I’m a fair weather ATL United fan. But have always wanted to check out European teams and it’s never lined up right with my other trips. Tried to go to a Barca match but it was a UEFA match I think against Bayern, so tickets were $3-400.
The crowd was pretty good. I’d say 85-90% full. They’re still doing renovations so lots of things were kinda out of whack and scaffolding everywhere. Concessions were basically 2 guys with coolers. Bathrooms were sporadic. The spot where the main club fans with drums and flags right behind the goal were covered and they had to sit a section up, in the 2nd pic. The easy miss by Modric? Was a funny reaction. Also they don’t serve alcohol.
Overall was a really cool experience. High fives some strangers. Was only a short cab ride away from my hotel so that was cool too. I’m gonna try to keep up with them a little going forward. I’ve always wanted to keep up with soccer more and not just the WC. Hala Madrid!
that’s awesome man, glad you enjoyed your experience and were able to see a lot of the big names play! If you don’t mind me asking, how’d you end up in Madrid?
I’ve been curious how the ongoing construction has impacted the matchday atmosphere with everything being sort of only partially accessible. As you mentioned, they’ve been forced to move the Surs from their usual spot behind the southern goal up high and much further from the pitch which isn’t nearly as fun or ideal either. Sounds like perhaps a lot of the food/drink/hospitality amenities may not be fully available currently either, though I’m pretty sure it’s still Spanish law that prohibits alcohol sales inside stadiums nation wide.
Very cool pictures by the way. Always happy for & jealous of anyone that gets to visit the Bernabeu.
I found a cheap flight back in April for a round trip outta PHX. So I had about 2 1/2 weeks in Spain. The only other Liga game that fit was gonna be a Real Betis game in Seville. lol. Glad it worked out in Madrid.
it's nice to have genuinely good human beings to support and cheer for
Wow thats awesome man, Spain is such an incredibly awesome place. Where else did you visit while you were there?
The Seville Derby would have been pretty wild to see as well though if you could only hit up one you def made the right call.
This is awesome. Amazing stuff.
Was there for about two and a half weeks. Stayed in Barcelona, Malaga, Granada, Seville and Madrid. Most of S Spain. Would’ve liked to venture into the northern part but felt I would’ve been rushing too much. Spain is so cool. Learned about their Civil War and other histories with the Muslims and then the Christian Reconquest. Great food.
I need to post in the Travel thread when I get a chance.
Definitely make it up north next time. San Sebastian, Bilbao, Pamplona and the northern coast are absolutely stunning.
Yeah heard lots of great things about the Basque Country from the Spaniards.
damn feel terrible for the guy especially since he got screwed out of winning it 4 years ago
this is very good news
This kid is the real deal. It’s like getting Mbappé before he has a chance to go to a different club and mess with your emotions window after window.
Merry Christmas to us all
ESPN fucking up the feed.
a glorified high school broadcast
which fits because it’s a glorified high school pitch and largely a high school effort thus far
it finally comes on and it’s a guy who can’t pronounce Modric or Tchouameni, or maintain a stream of commentary
I get it’s a Copa match against a segunda club but like
carlo: we’re going to Cacereno with the utmost respect
squad: are we?
Hazard worse than useless
this pitch is heinous
