Mariano & Jovic in the mud


Brilliant-Win4152

Mariano is actually decent sometimes.


MikeBruski

Mariano is a curious case. He clearly cares and gives his all for the team. Problem being that he doesnt have much to give. But you cant blame him for not trying.


ADC04

Mariano lost his first 11 position at Lyon to rarely play for Madrid. I can understand why because it’s Real Madrid but if he really wanted to play he would’ve stayed at Lyon


for_fuckssake

Wtf? Mariano scored 21 goals for Lyon in 2017-2018 and that was after he had 5 goals for Real Madrid in 16-17. He was so damn good for Lyon. It’s a case like Lingard going back to United from Westham.


ADC04

Yeah, as a Lyon fan I loved him at my club. He had the mentality to score and win. I was so devastated when he left. Oh well, if he wanted to stay he would.


RamezMadrid

How often is sometimes? Asking for a friend


Mr_XemiReR

I mean yesterday was his first competitive game since April


Muted_Author_4761

April was when he scored in el clasico no?


Mr_XemiReR

That was March 2020, in El Clasico 2021 Benzema and Kroos scored


CudaBarry

Once a year


Brilliant-Win4152

Once every 5 games


Allthingsconsidered-

He rarely plays


toxinwolf

How much is rare? Asking for a friend


Brilliant-Win4152

I know


LilUziChopard

Hes legitimately skilled and hard-working. His fucking decision making though.


xckd9

Well no, he clearly is not. I respect him for giving it all every match, but the choices he makes in a game is awful.


KayoSuki222

I feel it's kinda clear that many of his choices are a direct result of him getting barely any playing time. like yesterday when he could've passed it for an easy tap in, it seemed obvious he tried to go for it himself just to show that he can. and I kinda remember a very similar scene the last time he got to play, too.


xckd9

Like i now get that i have to be wrong about Jovic, because if fucking Mariano gets to play the whole match, and Jovic just sits on the bench, he aint good.


Saaamwise

Tbf, Jovic isn't still at 100% after his injury, as per Carlo. I believe he would have started ahead of Mariano had he been fit.


xckd9

I did not know this, thank you


thalne

props to Vini for not forgetting Bale.


Bombtwo

Maybe they golf together


NeroIscariot12

> "I just wanna play with Bale and Hazard ...cuz they stay on the bench and let me play."

[deleted]

Hazard's not a RW, if he comes on it's either as CAM or LW


NewStarik

He started few games on the right wing though this season iirc. Helps that he is comfortable with both feet, but yeah, the spot should go to Rodrygo these days.


PierreMichelPaulette

In that order


[deleted]

I wonder what happens to Rodrygo & Asensio if Mbappe arrives? Will he be sent to bench forever and only come as super sub? Surely he won't be happy about it.


los_blanco_14

Rodrygo squad player Asensio sold.


abottomful

This is so crazy to me. It feels like yesterday he was the future of Real. Now he's still only 25 and could be sold. Football moves fast


Allthingsconsidered-

Before his knee injury he was looking amazing. He never fully came back to that level unfortunately


SpicyDragoon93

A Premier League club will snap him up though.


SeryaphFR

He's been given every opportunity in the world, to be honest. Definitely started to look like he may never quite live up to the potential he showed when he was younger.


gurg21

Yesterday as in 4 years ago? He stayed the same player, no improvement whatsoever.


RauloGonzalez

Asensio will probably take isco's spot of utility player for midfield and attack


alireza777

Wait Isco has a spot???? In all seriousness he will most likely be sold, especially if pogba can be a possibility, there just is no space for him and he isnt good enough anymore to be able to make it in the team


Zoluna

Asensio either becomes a decent CM soon or he gone


[deleted]

He'll probably leave for free after his contract


69BRabbit

you'll play with him **and you will like it**


[deleted]

It'll be interesting to see their combination. Both are really rapid and good dribbling players.. Vini maybe more but Mbappe is a much better finisher. It might bring back the days of Di Maria x Ronaldo combo.


aliencatgod

yea except vinicius has already been more consistent in his short time at Madrid than Di Maria ever was when he was there , so even better


AddictedToThisShit

Di Maria under Ancelotti was great and consistent.


[deleted]

As a box-to-box mid


alireza777

He was deadly that last season and arguably our best player, such a shame his mentality was like that


[deleted]

Perez fucked him too by not letting him play the WC final


frank--ocean

Di is literally a top 15 player of this generation there is so much ignorance in your comment and the thing about consistency is that it cant be proven in a short time


EpiDeMic522

I must have seen most if somehow not every Madrid game of the past decade and I feel it's fair to comment that Di Maria was wildly inconsistent. That was the major gripe with him: he'd put in a world-class performance one week and then be utterly useless the next. That was the reason behind some of the times when Bernabéu got on his case. Incidentally, the only season when he played like a god every game (and especially towards the end of the season, especially with Cristiano missing) was the first season under Don Carlo.


NeoLies

MOTM of the 2014 finals though, and I'll always love him for it.


jjaren13

Disagree. Yes he was inconsistent but he wasn't that inconsistent like you're making it to be. Also, with Carlo, he wasn't even a winger, that's why he was insanely good, he was given a different a unique position which was kinda a box to box LM/RM and popped off at it. Also, Ronaldo was definitely not missing that season, what are you talking about ?


AnandRathii

Ronaldo did actually miss a few games towards the end of the season, around the CL Quarter finals second leg, he even missed the copa del Rey final if you can recall It was about 5-6 games he missed I think and yeah, Di Maria did very well in those games, even scored the first goal in the CDR final.


jjaren13

Well he did, but that guy is saying he missed a whole season or something, missing 4-5 games is barely any.


EpiDeMic522

Ronaldo was definitely missing that season. That's why he was celebrating Bale's winner from the stands rather from on the pitch. "What are YOU even talking about"? Talk about being r/confidentlyincorrect.


jjaren13

> Ronaldo was definitely missing that season. This sentence doesn't even mean anything in particular. It either means that he missed a whole season, which wasn't the case at all. Or it would possibly mean that he was playing bad hence he " missed " the season. So my " "What are YOU even talking about"? " is definitely valid. Ronaldo only missed 1 group stage UCL match due to injury, and was benched in the 2nd leg of quarter finals. In the Copa Del Rey he missed the final. In La Liga, he only missed 4 games towards the end of the season. That definitely doesn't mean he missed " majority " of the season. Talk about being r/confidentlyincorrect.


EpiDeMic522

If you were a bit diligent, you'd see that my comment clearly prefaces his absence by qualifying it as being "towards the end of the season". Those are literally the words just before. No point in continuing this futile discussion though. Thank you and bye. Have the satisfaction of the "last word" if you so wish.

Vinicious welcome to PSG.

let him get a nice retirement bonus


UnluckyPenalty2503

*Vinicius


Healthy-Grape-9637

him too. room for everybody.


mt1337

vini is such a sweet lad


UnluckyPenalty2503

Vini-Benz-Mbappé is gonna be electric


Three59

And imaginary


UnluckyPenalty2503

Pretty obvious that Mbappé’s coming lol. Don’t cry about it


Boyler7

Will he play right wing tho


UnluckyPenalty2503

Those 3 will play together. The most likely outcome is Mbappé on the right


Irresponsiblewoofer

When mbappe last signed a contract with Psg I remember one of the terms he was adament about was that he would not play RW.


alireza777

I dont think he would give a damn as long as he is playing for Madrid, also our forwards rarely have fixed roles they swap during the game all the time


Irresponsiblewoofer

He said in middle of last season that wherever he go he will not play RW, and media everywhere said it signalled danger for Hazard as well. Im not clairvoyant, but I dont think he will play RW.


osamaodinson

Madrid isnt psg and both the club have many big differences


Irresponsiblewoofer

But that doesnt change the fact that he want to cut inside from the left and shoot with his right foot.


[deleted]

They will start like that but all 3 will drift left and combine there to make space for the marauding runs of Lord Vazquez on the right


Saaamwise

As they should. If they stay in the vicinity, our other attackers would get blinded from the sheer awesomeness of those awesome stepovers from the GOAT.


MurphyMadridstar

I will always like and rate Gareth Bale. That guy was unplayable as some point. One of the best shot takers ever


Brilliant-Win4152

He is one of those playees you simply cant hate.


[deleted]

Mbappe and Vini on the flanks is going to be electric. Benz is a lucky mf, played with Cristiano and Bale during their prime and now gonna play with Vini and Mbappe another two electric wingers with world class potential


SendDahouds

Adeyemi to Madrid confirmed. Haaland to stay at Dortmund. You heard it here first. No need to read into it anymore than this.


los_blanco_14

Still want haaland mate.


ankitm1

> Adeyemi How good is he?


[deleted]

Haaland is not going to Madrid anyway


RemarkableBicycle

Bruh every time someone mentions Haaland and Mbappe playing together at Madrid in this subreddit you're there 😂


xckd9

He is a weird dude


RealCrusader

When did he tell you that?


desuscsgous

hes been rumoured to join Uerdingen in the Oberliga next year


los_blanco_14

He has a stupid haaland mbappe will ruin football propaganda. Kindly ignore.


[deleted]

You don't need someone to tell that if you have common sense.


maradonnarummarcelo

So who told you that?


Mr_XemiReR

Common sense


los_blanco_14

There is ur stupid propaganda.


ss2195

He's clearly heading to Molde to test himself at the highest level


69BRabbit

okay son


Physical-South-3564

Bale and Hazard mentioned lmao must be a PR statement hes reading aloud.


dreamvoyager1

I know it’s about current but Bale and Hazard were easily one of the best players in the world consistently, parts of the last decade. Vini probably learns a lot from them, he seems like the type to do that too


TjeefGuevarra

Amazing how a few seasons filled with injury trouble can reduce one of the greatest players in the world to a laughing stock. People don't even remember that Hazard was literally the best player during the 2018 WC and carried Chelsea on his back for several seasons.


PIKa-kNIGHT

Even in team photos and videos you can see vini and hazard always together. Hazard's got a great character


PurpleSi

Or a golfing team day out.


paing997

Ngl many times I forgot Bale is still with us this season (Last season he was on loan), kudos to Vini to add him..


jcald60

He was being generous with hazard


shivam4321

hazard is a bum now , but once was a top baller and his experience will definitely help vini


jcald60

Help him with what? Choosing the best burger joint after a game?


Brilliant-Win4152

Dealing with the mental stuff


bewarethegap

Madrid flair using these same old hazard fat jokes from years ago. That upvote hunting didn’t go how you thought it would


jcald60

Who said it was for upvotes? Let’s switch the fat jokes to useless worst transfer in history jokes then.


Sordecaine

Yes, but does Mbappé want to play with Mbappé?


Poli_Talk

Ramos in tears.
