Great news! Our captain is allmost about to get back, but we havent missed him as much as we did earlier in the season thanks to some good performances by Campo,Karanka, Helguera and of course Casillas.

O.K let's put things in to perspective we were lucky not to have conceded much more goals than we did. Casillas was great apart from crossing, Campo's best abilty is covering his mistakes and Karanka has played well but seems not to know that Campo is there. Hierro is needed vitally. We need our captian marvel back.

yes indeed we do and Julio Cesar is back as well so it looks like we have a stronger defence for the important games coming up

three weeks??Was it not a month ago Hierro was injured? I thought he would be back on the bench as late as yesterday! But that doesnt matter.He MUST play against Bayern.His experience will be vital.And he must be VERY hungry for Germans after conceding 8 goals!
And Julio is a nice young prospect whom we need.

The question is who will be changed. At this time it is impossible to decide if it is Campo or Karanka.

Great news! But I have no problem with whom to change, it has to be Ivan Campo - despite playing well lately we have to face it, it's been more luck then quality :eek: Still if we keep on losing with Hierro back, I wouldn't have any problem with the Bask pair at the back...

My saying is never change a team that wins, but...? we'll see.

Hierro is a key player, but to be honest I feel ne needs to be on top physically, otherwise he's rubbish. The last games he played were awfull.

What I believe has changed a lot in recent games is the fact that since Guti got injured, Helguera has played, and as he is more defensive, we have been way better (when the players were motivated and not tires :( )

I have a lot of hopes on Helguera, I really think he can become one top player.

Talking about Campo, I just have one thing to say, sell him as soon as you can Mr Sanz. Karanka is doing a great job lately.

That's what I've already pointed out. helguera is much more defensive and that has seemed to do the trick.

BTW davag why are you seldom here?

Cause I spend a lot of time also reading AS and Marca. I also participate at times in forums in spanish.

You have done a great job with this forum Labas. You actually really behave like a true Real fan. I have been myself a fan for 18 years already.

By the way you won't hear from me for about 10 days, I'm off to Barcelona. I'm gonna cheer up Real tomorrow at Montjuic :)

Well that's a really nice compliment :D :D :D never used that smile before! hehe

Yes I recall you posting info about being at both Espanyol games...were you at the one on wednesday? Actually it doesn't matter, because it wasn't worth it :( But when i watch the game on sunday, I'll be sure to look for you :) stupid comment, cause I don't even no what you look like! hehe

Still: good luck and have a great time, say hello to Raul #7 from Patryk L. AKA labas :)

About Helguero - he did play against Racing and we still conceded 4 (admittedly 2 should have been dissalowed). I think we need a solid defender cos you should ask yourselves if Campo and Karanka are worth a place in the Real side??
