    If we have the luck Madrid have had this year we will be in the top 6 at the end of the season
    Yep.
    They fluked those wins v PSG, Juve, Bayern and Liverpool and the draw was so kind to them.

      No Liverpool fan but Ramos deliberately pulled and twisted him to the ground, in order to injure him. I hope there's some karma coming his way at the WC.
      Much different to Lovren pushing Ronaldo to the ground off the pitch before the Salah incident ?

      Number of fouls in the game:

      Real Madrid 5
      Liverpool 18

      None committed by Sergio Ramos.

      Those figures are skewed by Madrid's clever plan to break up Liverpool's high pressing style with some professional nouse. A lot of fair challenges were being played up as fouls with squeals of pain and feigning injury.

      You have to take your hat off to them, it worked well and we should do the same when we play against a high press.

      Salah is to Liverpool what Zaha is to Palace.
      Both teams don't perform without them.

      No problem, BH. It's always been a game of opinions.

      Liverpool's foul count of 18 compared to the 5 of Real Madrid didn't help their opportunities to get the ball back and increase possession.

      Both teams hit the woodwork, but with Madrid having a goal (rightly) disallowed, Ronaldo taking far too long over a shot, Bale not squaring the ball across for a tap-in, and a spectator running on at the end when the ball was in the Liverpool box, the score could've been higher.

      But that's all hypothetical and academic. Liverpool had a great run, but just came up short. And Madrid just know how to find a way to win.

      With Spanish teams winning 9 out of the last 10 Champions Leagues and Europa Cups in the last 5 years, it illustrates even more the gap between the top La Liga sides of the likes of Real, Barca, Athletico and Sevilla in consistency, and the rest of Europe, let alone the Premier League.
      Absolutely agree with the last part. Anyone that believes that the Premier League is the best in the world at the moment doesn’t watch enough Spanish football. They’re still comfortably ahead of us in terms of the standard of their game.

      Nonsense. The top 4 teams are quality. The rest are not good. The top teams tend to roll over the others with some ease, the games are goalfests hence ronaldo and messi goal stats.

      He wants regular football, so maybe a deal could be done.

      Shows how clever he is. not that he doesn't commit fouls.
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      To be fair, it also showed that he didn't commit any fouls in the eyes of the referee - the person that ultimately mattered.

      It also showed that Liverpool committed over 3 times as many fouls as Madrid.

      But I get the sentiment of what you're saying.

      Ramos is a master of the dark arts and always plays right up to the line of what's acceptable (and often beyond that).

      Would I love him or someone like him in the Albion's side? Absolutely. He's a natural leader on the field and regularly scores critical goals.

      Players like Ramos don't come around very often. And we missed out on Roy Keane back in the day.
