    Real Madrid-træner Jose Mourinho melder både Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema og Marcelo ude til næste uges kamp mod Tottenham. Til gengæld er Gonzalo Higuain tilbage allerede i weekenden.



    Jose M: Ronaldo og Benzema ude mod Spurs


    Don't know their source, but usually they're very reliable and quite slow to get to these things.
    In the end much will depend on our own performance of course, but if this is true then surely it's a nice little pick-me-up for the weekend :)

    Sweet news. Technically I don't like to see any player miss out but **** it nice one. If they are back for the game at the lane then no probs we can deal with them in front of our home fans. That away match is rough we need all the help we can get

    If Jose mourinho said he was eating Pasta, you would still have to check under the bolognaise sauce to see if he was telling the truth.

    I will believe his team selection news, when i see it.

    I agree with the others, i'll believe it when I don't actually see Ronaldo or Benzema on the pitch, Tuesday.

    You should never believe this sort of thing. Fergie, Mourinho, Wenger, even dear old Harry, they all engage in these antics. I'm sure those three have niggles, but I'm not going to rule out a 'miraculous' recovery.

    Mind games!! Don't believe him for a second. I'll only believe him when i see the team sheets on tuesday. As much of a boost it is if they are out their will still be a player who can cause us problems, all top teams have replacements. Heard Higuain is fit now too?? Anyway still wouldn't mind seeing them miss out! COYS

    It's certainly a wait and see sort of thing.

    Fact is, I believe we can get a result against Madrid with or without Ronaldo. I expect Crouch to provide serious issues for their back line and hope and pray that Sandro continues his top form. Either that or Hudd comes in and takes care of it.

    Marcelo being missing could also work to our advantage.

    I expect that too, honestly Mourinho is known for mind games so just expect Ronaldo in the line-up and even if Benzema isn't fit, they still have Higuain.

    Which is what I'm sure Harry and the lads have been preparing for ever since we drew these guys.

    Doesn't change things for me. We can beat this team with or without their major players. It doesn't matter how good they might seem to be, our lads always step up for the big matches...they have throughout this CL campaign. I think that we can manage a draw. 2-2 would be ideal. But as long as we head home still in the tie then i'll be happy.


    Everyone has watched this team just as much as I have and should know what we are capable of. Get behind the lads, there is no tomorrow (except...for tuesday....when we play real madrid....but.....).

    COYS!

    Agreed! Mourinho said that so that the players will loosen up a bit and focus will not be the same. It's up to Harry to counter and keep his guys in focus. Spurs should be ready with or without Benzema and Ronaldo. They have been demolished by Barca 5-0, Spurs can do it too.
