Did you even watch the game? The first Zurich goal was a clear dive! The Zurich player stuck out his leg to hit Casillas when he saw the ball was too far from him. It was a bullshit call, and another reason why video replay NEEDS to be implemented. The only “shakey” moments Madrid had came from two dead ball opportunities, the first was off target, the other, Zurichs second goal, was well buried in the net. Madrids free kick and corner kick defense is shit, I don’t know why they can’t figure this out. The two goals were the by-product of a blatant dive (please watch the replays before accusing Casillas of a misplay!) That resulted in a bull shit penalty. Considering those factors, you can hardly call 5-2 shakey.you know who looked more shakey… Every English team playing. Three 1-0 finishes and a 3-2. Why don’t you comment on those unconvincing performances. Your skewed English view of the world is laughable, the sad thing is that many people here don’t watch these games, so they take what they read here as factual events of the truth, buts its simply arrogant English vomit! And when I watched the game I heard several chants of “Madrid!”, and “asi, asi, asi golea Madrid” amongst others. True that Madrid fans could have been louder, but how loud were Man U fans when at Besiktas? Its tough to drown out a crowed when your out numbered 10-1. And if you want to comment on shakey games from Madrid based teams, why not mention Atletico’s 0-0 draw against minnows!I’m having a hard time figuring out weather this article was written by someone that doesn’t watch/understand football, or a jealous Three Lions fan. Either way, its irresponsible journalism of the lowest kind, published with a sensationalistic title to draw attention. I congratulate the author, you are now ready to go work for a trash tabloid!

Sure they could do with some more lyric-based songs (F.C.Z. sung to various tunes isn’t going to threaten YNWA or Poor Scouser Tommy anytime soon) but they never stopped singing and waving their flags. As you say, the Madrid support was silent – I was about 10 seats away and I never heard Viva Espana.

Clubs like United and Chelsea played uninspiring games to win by lean margins. I guess Madrid outclassed the rest of Tuesday’s teams with their dazzling performance.This is a clear warning to all that they are in to WIN the Champs Cup this time. No doubt!!!

He may be the key to their hopes this season.
