As good Real is this season, they have failed in all three biggest games of the season so far. Lost to Atletico and Barca early and now only draw vs Atletico again...

Indeed and they didn't convince either when they played Juventus in the Champions League this season even though they won 1 of the 2 games.

Well people are saying that this might be the best Real we've seen in years now..

I don't really agree, they somehow manage to win most of their games and they even crush opponents with 6-0 scores but I dont what it is, when I see them play I really dont go "wow", I really dont think of them as "scary".. And I dont think they are as good as Bayern either.

Maybe its just me though..

Personally I don't find Ancelloti intimidating, so that might be some of what you're feeling. Bale and Ronaldo are pretty terrifying though. Would certainly like to dodge Madrid in the CL if we progress, but let's be real, the CL draws are rigged and we'll get Madrid because of the Mourinho connection.

I dont get thib 'bes real ever' thing either. They seem to lose or draw most bigger games and even their overall play apart from goals is nothing special. They dont play connected passing football. It realy is funny how people say this is best real ever.

They're saying it simply because of the vast amount of talent Real have available.

Player for player it is a great Real, but nothing will beat the Galactico era of Ronaldo, Zidane, Beckham, Raul etc. in my opinion (player wise).

This was specifically towards the 6 - 1 demolition of Shalcke. That game did make you go "wow".

Me too, don't agree. Let's wait to see what Bale will do in the long run (Robben was as talented and failed to make an impact there).

And from a relative perspective, i'm too young to have watched them, but Puskas, Kopa and Di Stefano leading the offensive was monstruous. The 3 best players in the world and the best sweeper Santamaria.

Also the galactics era can compete. The Raul-Ronaldo-Figo trio is as indtimidating as Benz-CR-Bale, and as much as i like Modric, he's no Zidane !

As for the Courtois/Cech dilemma, Cech is untouchable for me. He's a legend, that's all. You don't question a legend when he's playing as the level he is expected to : worldclass. Mourinho benched Casillas because he was undermining his authority and also because he wasnt performing at his true level. Not only Cech has a tremendous season, he would also never get arrogant or be a trouble maker. For all that, benching him is just unthinkable.

He's still at the top of his game, so even if Courtois was brought in and put in a fair concurrence with Cech by Mou, I think Cech would win. He's just too important. He does not need any time to adapt unlike Courtois.

As for Courtois, he's so talented that benching him would be an insult to the sport. So another loan, i guess. Maybe this time in Premier League, but I feel Courtois would ask to be loaned to a club where he could play Champions League football, and I don't see Chelsea loaning him to any contender for the title.

"Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, 21, who is on loan at La Liga side Atletico Madrid, has a verbal agreement to join Real Madrid."

(from BBC's gossip:) section)

WTF?!

That's impossible, but I still maintain that if he don't sign a new contract we must sell him.

Why lose the possibility of getting some money instead of nothing as Dortmund did with Lewandosky.....

If this is true then we shouldn't wait until the contract is up, see if Madrid want him NOW in some deal for Varane. Courtois has always seemed unhappy with Chelsea so I don't doubt it. I want Courtois long term, but if he is set on not signing a new contract with us we're screwed and he'd be more valuable as bait to fatten a deal for a player we can keep long term. If we keep Cech until his last possible year we will be fine. There's not much anyone but Thibaut can do in terms of making up his mind, I do think the club should find out what this agreement is. If its real and serious we should negotiate some deal with real, if they don't want to do a deal now we sell Courtoid to Atletico as a big symbolic middle-finger to spite Real.

I don't read as he is "going to move" just that he may have agreed terms with RM. Yes, the move would still be up to us, but if he has indeed agreed terms with RM things will get interesting.

WAGNH had a pretty decent article about it ;)
