it is a very bad result for real madrid after only managed a draw away from home. valladolid is proving time and time again to be a tough opponent. last week valencia were lucky enough to win in mestalla. im bound to agree that last night wasnt the best of real madrid. i was seeing a reflection of last years performance which sent me off my limits. soon after valladolid scored, i was having mental breakdown, well i may exaggerate a bit. however, it doesnt help me to see how they are goin to overcome their lack of spirits performance. sneijder helps them a lot with strong possesion and good nature of playing in the center. losing him is like playing without a striker. bernd schuster seems dont mind standing on the sideline watching his side went down under. he made good substitutions by replacing rusty robinho and uncomfortable drenthe 20 minutes into the second half. however, with only 25 mins to play, those subs werent goin to help anyone. finally, saviola made it 1-1 only few mins before final whistle. would a point mean anything to real? of course it would. but how far real madrid can go by drawing? not far. broken passes are the main reason they have lost last night. as if i may have been put to watch a 2nd divison team play against champions of la liga. isnt the other way around? it wasnt the team i saw several months back that won la liga title. they are certainly losing sneijder so much and it shows. i would love to see david beckham playing on the right instead of inexperienced higuain who lets a couple golden chance slipped through his fingers. becks may lack technical skill but he certainly has somethin that other players dont, spirit. he can push defence into their own half and make superb cross right in front of opponents goal. anyway, i will always support both of them and hope for the best of luck in number of years.
the sun made a headline story that suggests becks may train in arsenal ground to keep his fitness up after MLS season closed this november. i consider this report is baseless considering becks top notch loyalty to red devils and i believe the sun is trying to make their newspaper outsell daily mirror (or they already have? not sure) in terms of rubbish. however, if this news proved to be reliable, i am deeply touched by wengers move to let becks uses their training camp for temporary basis. i remember when becks was having a difficult period in 2004, he came to rescue by saying becks and real madrid cant be written off from champs league competition although they were struggling to win matches both local and regional. i myself, is a huge admirer of arsene wenger. he doesnt speak nonsense about his team and clearly a gentleman. newcastle will be their next opponent in league cup and hopefully we'll get to see young players play their part.
