I think Madrid care more about the Champions League this season anyway. Mourinho probably is thinking he has already beaten Pep, so now he has to finally end Madrid's European Cup wait. Hope to God they don't win it though.
Who'd you prefer to win the CL (if not Chelsea of course)?
I expect Madrid to beat City honestly and Montpellier to beat us as well. For this season, I really don't care for the CL because I really think we have a chance to challenge in the League and I don't want any stupid distractions.

i expect madrid to beat us too. unless we magically fix our defence, which i doubt. maicon will be massively important imo, and we cant exactly drop javi after that debut. silva to start though, so that's good. and kun.
Btw, how the fuck is arbeloa a professional football player?
I said this before the Euro's and was laughed at by HoL, samoon and a few others. He's a very average player.
Good to see Jose ONLY GOOD FOR TWO SEASONS Mourinho and Madrid flopping hard. Delighted with the Modric signing too, he's taking game time off Ozil and has been barely noticeable in his appearances so far. He was playing even deeper than Xabi last night, leaving Madrid with less firepower up front, and its great seeing Kaka, who was almost back to his best post-Xmas last year, being completely ignored in favour of Callejon, and hopefully CRY7 stays sad for a while longer.
Was great seeing David Villa again last night, can't wait until he's starting games again, Tito being very sensible in building up his match fitness. Pedro is also well and truly BACK.
