    That it is. If Madrid buys Hazard, who plays in Asensio's position, if the latter complained the club would have a brilliant riposte to any complaint of his: "Oh but you know Marco, we needed someone who was willling to do the heavy lifting for the team, that's not you, right?"

    Yes, Jose will steady the ship and stop them getting relegated. Give him a call Real, promise him a billion transfer kitty, he’ll go!

    5 losses but still only 4 points of first. Will be seven, but still not that bad just yet.

    I really don't understand what Real was thinking selling Ronaldo without investing in the squad. Atrocious transferwindow.

    Madrid were so sloppy. Courtois especially.

    This is increasingly looking like their version of our Moyes season in a sense that we were both ill prepared for the successful manager to call it quits at their respective clubs, although Real did sack their manager a lot earlier than we did.

    Who knows, they can still win the CL again. Real didn't start last season very well either so I'm not completely writing them off just yet. Things do look a lot worse for them without CR7 though.

    I think De Gea to Madrid rumours will be back in full swing soon, Courtois continues to look very ropey.

    Not being able to compete and spend the "Galactico" money is seriously affecting Real Madrid

    The inflation of transfer fees and that, only two clubs in the world can spend whatever they like without any problem which is PSG and City. Madrid can't go out and spend 300,400,500 million every summer to improve their squad

    We really need to sell Kroos and Modric asap. It's worse than i thought. They really don't want to be here anymore

    This is Perez's biggest test though, in recent memory. There is a reasonable chance Real drop out of the Top 4. There is a shortage of available managers -- Mourinho looks very, very likely as Ancelotti probably won't leave Napoli after one season. Plus, the squad needs a huge overhaul, and careful scouting is required to buy the right players to fit their vision.

    Damn for the past decade or so Real usually lost like 1-3 games against those kinda clubs, but by 1 goal max
    0:3 to random La Liga midtable teams truly feels like he start of a new era

    To be fair your attack is hardly inspiring to them.

    This is all on Perez though. He hired stupid to begin with. Then didn’t revamp the squad over the last few years. Your squad is effectively the same but you lost Ronaldo, Morata, James, Kovavicic and Pepe. How many of those players have you really replaced? With someone like Ronaldo you obviously wont get a like for like replacement. Player like that you need two signings.

    Letting in 3 goals vs Eibar? I understand CR7 is gone but letting in three goals is on the defense and keeper.

    Honestly think the made a mistake by throwing in a permanent cotract to Solari after just 3 games. Not everyone gonna be Zidane.

    The defeat is inexcusable but in all honesty random La Liga midtable teams have also progressed quite a lot of late.

    Still, 3-0 is way too much.

    Jesus Christ! I wonder what was the odds for a 3-0 win for Eibar. God bless anyone who bet on an Eibar win. I still think Real Madrid will make top 4, they are too good not to make top 4 and it's still so early in the season but if they keep dropping silly points like this, who knows? The league is definitely out of the question for them. What a poor La Liga has been this season. I hope Atletico Madrid get their act all together, this could finally be the second time in a while they win the title again. They won't get a better opportunity than this season. And that goes the same for the other mid-table teams who want to break into the top 4.

    Bale has been nothing short of a joke this season. A really bad joke.

    What do you mean poor? It has been the most competitive & exciting for many seasons. Unlike the usual parade, with the clubs outside the top three cannon fodder. I bet the French wish their league was as poor.

    A competitive league, as logic suggests, would indicate to mediocre top teams which means difference between upper and lower echelons of the league is not that much.
    Happened in Leicester's dream season, all top teams underperformed massively. The season was poor in terms of sheer quality.

    It can be competitive & exciting and still be poor. See Premier League when Leicester won.
