Ah, so Barca can go on to win the League now.
Somebody was saying La Liga is already over since Madrid is 5 points behind now.
There are very few players in the World that are better than Benzema. And Higuain certainly isn't one of them. Benzema is the complete forward. The only things Higuain has on him is heading, and having more of a poachers instinct. Benzema is much better overall though.
Ahem, look at their international records. Also, look at WC 2010 for Higuain + Copa America 2011 (although he didn't play as big a role). Then, compare to Benz in Euro 2012. In their international careers, Higuain has the same amount of goals as Benzema (minus 2) in half the matches.
Stats aren't everything. Benzema is great. Higuain is the definition of a striker. At Real, Higuain still has a better goals to game ratio. Some goals have come after Real were 5-1 up, so I'll ignore Madrid for now.
With Argentina, he is the second-best player behind that GOAT dude. Yes. It's not that he is better than El Kun or Tevez, but he has the impact that nobody else apart from GOAT has.
Mourinho is bad. But the relationship he builds with the clubs he manages are unique. That hasn't really happened at Madrid for some reason, but Porto, Chelsea and Inter fans will always love the guy.
If he never managed Chelsea and bought us success like we never knew, fought hard for our club and gave his all, I doubt I would like him either.
I tend to agree. I've never been able to digest Jose as Real's manager. Madrid and him don't look identical at all. I adored him at Inter and also when he was at Porto. At Chelsea, I wasn't a fan but when I think of Mou, I instantly think of Chelsea. He just doesn't seem to fit into Madrid and it's been two seasons. Maybe it's just the psychology.
But I don't want him in the Prem.
