This man suffered a lot of criticism during his first year but for a long time now I've been wanting to open a thread dedicated to him as a sign of respect for the good things he has achieved for this club so far. Ramón Calderón has never been in such a privileged position before (compare that to Florentino Perez, who was the CEO of a major construction company with excellent PR skills), so mistakes were inevitable to be committed in the early periods of his tenure.

I think Calderon has settled well into his role now. He has gone from criticizing players in public to a calming influence, always taking the initiative with positive purposes and the class of a leader. Under his presidency, we are Champions in both Football and Basketball.

Finally, I can say that his reaction to an important defeat such as the Roma disappointment has been refreshing;

"I feel deceived and disappointed, but in sport it is necessary to know how to lose, to congratulate your opponent :thumbsup: and to work to find a solution to the problem. We now concentrate on the one competition we have left, to continue in first and to win the title once more".

"They have demonstrated that they are quality players and know how to play well as a team. We have made an important investment with young players for four or five years".

"We are bound to suffer some setbacks, but I continue trusting this group; one defeat does not make them a bad team. We may make some adjustments at the end of the season, but gone are the days of massive signings."

Calderón also continues to trust coach Bernd Schuster and believes that he is the man to deliver success for the club.

"I say as a fan and as the president: we believed in him and we continue to do so. He does not have to prove anything to us and the loss yesterday was not indicative of the rest of his work. He has demonstrated in other matches that he knows how to work. We trusted Schuster and I want to continue trusting him.

"Logically he is angry and disappointed, as any person who has been a top player and hates losing would be. He trusted in this group a lot and this has disappointed him, but he will leave it here and move on as this one defeat is not that important in the scheme of things."

Finally, Calderón had a message for the Madrid fans, telling them not to be too downhearted because of the Champions League exit.

"Unfortunately luck was not on our side yesterday, but this does not have to bring about pessimism and total disappointment... it is necessary to get behind the team and to try and win the title, as the league is very important."

Gracias, Presidente :star:.

Nice one Calderon. I saw him on RMTV the other day and he was talking about the football set up whereby he left all the decisions to the people who know about football unlike his predecessor.

In my opinion we will see this summer what Ramon Calderon can do. We have severe lacks especially in the midfield, and we need some world class talent to fix that. While with Florentino I always knew he could get the players he wanted at a decent price, but I have serious doubts about Calderon's negotiation skills.

EDIT:
"We are bound to suffer some setbacks, but I continue trusting this group; one defeat does not make them a bad team. We may make some adjustments at the end of the season, but gone are the days of massive signings."
Like Raulito I react to the "Gone are the days of massive signings", now as I see it we have two options this summer. Either we get in cheap players, who might perform or we go for established players who most likely will perform. I doubt that the fans will accept Real Madrid being just a 1/8 finals team in Europe one more season.

I think that you are the only one who have wet dreams on him, right...?


If you ask me, this mother ****er can go to hell!:yuck:

oh come on man !

this mofo is the one who boight Figo and Zidane who made our team play orgasmic football . this is the best person who marketed the the brand name of RM

he had his mistakes but one glaring ****IN stupid mistake ! iam sure you all know it (VDB :mad: )

He bought Ramos and Robson ... the future of RM

As for Calderon I have nothing against him , he is starting to show that he matured in his position . we won the football and basket ball league in his first year so i cant complain.He brought a coach who will achieve alot ISA with RM in the future, many dont believe in schuster but I personally do .On the other hand, he promised CESC,KAKA and Robben and now I can say that he's a crook or a liar in other words.Moreover, we over paid many players with 120 million euro budget we should have had much better players !

Calderon is experiencing a slight evolution (I hope) . . .

allthough his first year was full of stupid remarks, looks his tone is now mellowed a bit which is good.
On the other hand, two very huge mistakes in firing capello/hiring schuster and spending big on robben where he could got diego instead.
big mistakes that will cost us at the end of the year.

Because you know Pinto da Costa wouldn't leave Porto, right? Otherwise he's better than those two. :pp

Anyways, let's just put up with Calderon for two more years after this... then it's back to Senhor Florentino who's accepted his mistake of being too involved in football decisions.

Florentino Perez said that he was mistaken to be invovled too much in footballing decisions .

if he means what he has said it would be a dream to see him at the helm once again !

he would get most of the players we've failed to sign in a heartbeat...........

people tend to always remember the failures in his era and forget the achievments !

I'd take florentino over Calderon anyday of the week

Of course, but as a sign of respect to M4 who started this thread, let's now try and leave the Florentino stuff out of it. I think everybody knows where I stand on this, so I'm done on this issue myself. I'm enjoying Calderon but desperately await Florentino's return. End of.

ok

btw Calderon is already showing signs of improvement in his position but I despise this statement "gone the days of massive signings "

WTF !!! utterly stupid and shouldnt be said by the president of RM

anyway he should show first that he is capable of finishing massive signings :rolleyes:

Its hard to forget all the fcuk ups as there are so many.

A lot of people seem to think he signed who he wanted when it wasnt the case. He signed players who wanted to come. Sheva didnt come and then there was Vieira who wanted to come but they couldnt agree on his wages.

Hes referring to the galactico type signings from the Perez era where we signed lots of big name platers without any thought as to how they were going to play let alone consulting the coach. Anyway he was after Kaka, who would have been a massive signing.
