"Weekend Soccer 10.27-28: Time to Bale"


  

          

Sunday will be the first Clasico played without Messi and Ronaldo in 10 years and somehow that is something of a sidenote, as Julen Lopetegui continues his semi-annus horibilis by being on the verge of being sacked, less than 10 weeks into his season. Real Madrid won -tediously- in the Champions League, and Isco has issued a fiery proclamation of support for his manager, but the writing seems to be on the wall, and not in faint ink either. And really, the fact that there is clamor for 18 year old new signing Vinicius Jr tells you more than you need. For Barcelona the absence of their talismanic star has so far been alleviated by a squad that is still one of the very best in Europe. Their league start, though better than Real's, has been pushy as well. But with Coutinho and Rafinha surrounding Suarez effectively, they'll be confident in their chances of taking a 7pt lead on their arch-rivals.

Spurs and City meet in one of the biggest Monday night fixtures in recent memory. Only 2pts separate them, which should reassure Spurs fans despite some early season struggles and injuries. Everton travel to Old Trafford hot off 2 straight wins, though they haven't beat the Red Devils since 2015.

Unfortunately, the games have come thick and fast since the international break, meaning there's been precious little time for Dean Smith to stamp his imprimatur on the team. The win at home to Swansea was nice, the second-half fade away at Norwich less so. But! the team's organization has looked so much better, players are in their natural positions, and we've been creating chances. Also, John McGinn won goal of the month in the Championship for the belter of a volley against the Wednesday. So there's that. Roll on to Selhurst today.

Mostly a wide-shot that lets you see what’s going on. Waaaay less of the BS close-ups that Premier League editors seem to think we can’t do without (same thing in Ligue 1)

CP played well and kept pushing, deserved point for them. What's disappointing for me isn't the result rather how we gave up the two goals. Mustafi makes a really poor decision on the first one and then on the second we completely flub a two man advantage counter by Laga turning the ball over which results in the 4v4 going the other way...Xhaka leaves his leg in and that's that.

Lacs was poor. Should have subbed him off instead of Ozil. Too many forwards at that point. His turnover was rain for second penalty

If they'd waited until after the tournament no one would have cared. But they had to be Real Madrid about it
