Just need Pepe to score a couple of own goals and then get sent off, after being caught play acting for his second yellow, and this game will then be complete.

I really hate that guy.

Fucking hell Armstrong.

"Atletico have dragged Madrid down to their level"

You couldn't make that shit up.

Why are people complaining about all the play acting? It's a highly strung Madrid derby, what on earth did you expect? I think it's brilliant to be honest.
.

Hooray! At least someone understands what's going on here. Spanish games can be controlled, technical, tactical. Occasionally we get ones where emotion completely takes over. Why so many people are moaning about this I have no idea. That was a fantastically intense 45 minutes - or is the Premier League allowed a monopoly on "passion"?

Oh, BTW I might be the only other person who agreed with you about DeMichelis and Kompany earlier this afternoon.

You mean the comment that Demichelis is criticized harshly, even for mistakes of Kompany? I agree with that to be honest.

But I don't agree about playacting. A match can be great without it, too.

Yes and Yes - I'd sooner not see it but it all adds to rich tapestry especially when the ref is ignoring it.

Sky have great commentators in Jon Driscoll and Kevin Keatings and really good analysts in Terry Gibson and David Phillips yet they keep giving all the big games (I suspect purely out of sentiment) to Uncle Gerry and that smug git Rob Palmer. What a shame.

i think the playacting to this extreme level in some of these games make it more interesting .....because theres nothing at stake for me (no liverpool involved). Adds another dimension to the game

kinda like watching bad acting in WWF wrestling. its so bad its genius!!

Oh yeah I love it, it all definitely adds entertainment and drama to such games.

In other news, I would LOVE it if we signed Koke.

Hmmm, it's a tough one but I'd probably choose Arda or Koke. Filipe would solve our left back issues - he's 28 though.
