simeone

After firing coach Gregorio Manzano, Atletico de Madrid president Enriique Cerezo has declared: "I think that Simeone is a good choice, expecially for his relations with his ambiance. We have sent an offer to El Cholo. He is happy to come here, but now we must negotiate. Today we should have the definitive answer".

Diego Simeone is back !

One time we played Cagliari and before the game I asked him: 'Do you know the name of the centre-back of Cagliari?' 'No'. 'No?! You are not a professional. You have to know the skills of the opponent. You have to know the name of the centre-back'. 'Mister', said Ronaldo, 'I don't know the name of the player I play against. But he knows me'!''

Apparently Simeone has been officially signed. He is an interesting coach, with some great campaigns and some very poor ones. But I'm sure he will the fan's support at Atlético, which certainly will help.

The amount of coaches your club goes through is truly insane, maybe its time to accept that your club is just cursed? Although i gotta say Simeone just insill some much needed cojones into this squad, your players look like a bunch of pansies most of the time and Simeone should be able to change that.

Aupa Atleti !!!!

Yo me voy al Manzanares
al estadio Vicente Calderon
donde acuden a millares
los que gustan del futbol de emocion
Porque luchan como hermanos
defendiendo su colores
en un juego noble y sano
derrochando coraje y corazon
Atleti, Atleti, Atletico de Madrid...

Real =
Barca =

The club is not cursed, it's just something stupid that Jesús Gil came up with in order to get the fans on board with him. Since then, the board have made a campaign out of this stupidity.

zoric, you need to stop making excuses for the piss poor product your team constantly puts on the pitch.

The nonsense with the board does not prevent a manager and eleven players from getting the job done on the field.

Your squad isn't good, your board is a disaster, you haven't had a competent manager in years, and you're now a laughing stock of a club completely controlled by agents.

Face the facts, mate.

Man, you're too much. Getting all worked up because of your own misstakes.

This club have got a debt set at €115-215 million, most likely a lot more than what the board dares to talk about. Gil Marín's family, who own 70% of the shares in the club, have made 43 managerial changes since 1987, the players who're getting signed are almost exclusively property of Jorge Mendes and Manuel García Quillón, so, instead of going out and looking for proper players and install a network through building relationships with other people in other countries and regions, they just turn to these two and they've been involved in 14 people signing for the club (10 out of these have been players and we've got 24 players in our squad). Quillón even managed to squeeze Pipo Baraja in as Manzano's long time assistant coach of 10 years so he'd get a provision. Are these players good enough to be playing for a club that is trying to "reach the Champions League-spots"..? You can answer that for yourself, plus this club haven't got enough strength in depth. As if this wasn't enough; the Gil-family also took over the club alongside Cerezo in an dishonest way and a judge even declared this (the only reason why they managed to keep it was because the time was up for the case).

Caminero? He doesn't have a say in anything. The guy is being used in the same way as Cerezo; public figure that speaks about issues at the club, doesn't take any decisions, those are all Gil Marín's.

There are even stories floating around that they need to sell off Reyes in order to pay some of the player wages. How is this not going to affect you? This is not excuses, this is simply the reality of the football club.

alm:

That's what I'm saying as well. Where have I ever said that Atlético's board is any good or competent? Take out Diego as well as Arda and you've got an extremely mediocre team, which also showed big time against Albacete. We haven't even got a proper replacement for Sílvio for gods sake.

Was hoping that you'd be willing to offload Salvio for a reasonable price, but I guess that Simeone will try to get the best out of him now. This kid is a diamond in the rough.

He's promising more guts, aggression etc. His Racing side conceded few goals but didn't score many in the past Apertura.

Either way, good luck Cholo!
