I'm a Madrid fan, but I admire Alexis Sanchez. I dread seeing him play against Madrid because he always seems to score. To me he's a near perfect attacker. Pace, strength, finishing, versatility. He can play as a center forward, striker, winger, basically anywhere.

Excited for this week. Nothing gets me going like the prospect of seeing City and Arsenal get completely pumped in the space of two days

Can't see City not winning the prem this season tho

Would be downright giddy if ManU weren't top 4.

Not a futebol enthusiast, but both of my best friends are (and the whole country loses it's shit with it). I have to admit that going to a stadium and feel all the energy is a really cool experience that I like to have once in a while.

Courtois to Real Madrid

AS is not a reliable source. It's basically just a tabloid that panders to Real Madrid supporters. MARCA is similar.

Regardless, this wouldn't make any sense. Real Madrid already have trouble finding enough playing time for the captain of the Spanish national team. Why would they sign another goalie?

Lol I know. I just found it hilarious that they think an Atleti fan favorite would go to Madrid.

Pretty cool. Adidas released a football boot with a knitted upper. Would really love to try it out to see how it feels to play in.

i have mentioned this before, but this is probably my favorite:

i don't particularly care for barcelona, but i am partial to some of their ugly away kits, such as this one:

Image

a lot of teams have some terrible away kits (madrid springs to mind), but at least barcelona's are interesting.

in terms of default kits, i like anything with black stripes (inter, juve, dortmund, etc.)

their third kit this year is just a chelsea home kit though. the green one is the one they wore at old trafford in that CL game right?

the blue jersey is actually the away kit. Our third kit this year is that traffic cone orange. And yeah. We had good times with that kit. The 2-1 win over United, Ronaldo scoring his first CL hat trick.
