in case you missed it – the “sin” edition

January 31, 2011

In case you missed it – Osasuna vs. Real Madrid [2011-01-30, Liga jornada 20].

In Spanish, the world “sin” means without, and in this game, Madrid was without goals, without ideas, without freshness, without a healthy Xabi Alonso, without air.   The gap between Madrid and Barcelona now stands at seven points.

Let’s go over the game first and then I’ll share some thoughts.

ONE. And from the game, let’s get the bad moments over first as well.  The loss, and the frustration that came with it.


On the way back to Madrid, the airplane was silent, with no one speaking to anyone else and not many people eating the in-flight meal.  Everyone had their “serious” face on.

TWO. Emmanuel Adebayor made his Real Madrid debut in this game.  I kind of feel sorry for him, getting thrown head first into the maelstrom that is Real Madrid.  I hope someone prepared him for this.  He played one-third of the game, but was incapable of breaking through to Ricardo’s goal, much like the rest of his teammates before and after him.

On the other hand, the triple substitution was quite unusual and at least we got to see Xabi barking out instructions.

THREE. This game was characterized by a lot of objects being thrown onto the field, from bottles to lighters to newspapers to cushions to oranges to empty cigarette packages to rocks to to even footballs.  After the game, Cristiano expressed his disgust with it all:  “it’s inadmissible for a football game to turn into a naval battle.  What happened today is not good for the entertainment that is football or for the children that enjoy this game.  I don’t like this at all.  The other day in Sevilla, Iker’s head was almost broken.  These types of actions should be fined.”  I agree with Cristiano, but since it’s Cristiano saying this as a Real Madrid player, he’s probably going to get fined instead and other lesser teams are going to speak out against him.  Here, you can see Ozi taking a corner with that part of the field absolutely littered with objects, and something flying at Sergio as he’s about to do a throw-in, and below, Cristiano tossing some lighters off the field.

The throwing of the extra balls was written up in the match report, with the referee noting that twice during the second half, play had to be stopped when “balls were launched from the stands on a side where local supporters were located.”  However, this happened at least four times after Osasuna scored their goal.  Some of the fans had kept the balls while the teams were warming up before the game just to do this with it.

Added to that were the insults that the Osasuna fans sitting right on top of Real Madrid’s bench kept hurling at the players and substitutes throughout the game.  But what do you expect from fans who also chanted at their own coach, José Antonio Camacho, “leave with them, leave with them” (with the “them” referring to Real Madrid, his old team) during the game.

FOUR. The excessive fouling.  Cristiano and Álvaro helped the referee to keep count of how many they had received.

FIVE. Cristiano got into a bit of a skirmish with Walter Pandiani as the first half ended, but luckily the two were separated before things could get bigger.  I like how it seems like it took a huge effort from the slight Ozi to push Walter aside, and how Sergio just comes up to Cristiano like a big brother would to tell him, “none of that, come with me.”

SIX. The Mou corner.

He looks kind of sinister there in the dark.

For José Mourinho, the loss could not be blamed on the players (“my players worked with dignity and I don’t have anything to reproach them for”) or the referee (“he did an excellent job”) because Osasuna “gave everything they had.”  His only complaint was that “in Spain, it always happens that when the team is winning, the balls disappear or other ones are thrown in.”

I loved how he hid behind his neck muffler throughout the game, but had to pull it down when he wanted to speak to his players.

SEVEN. And now onto the better moments, starting with Álvaro’s save (who’s it going to be in the next game?) and the hug between Carlos Aranda and Karim Benzema after the game.

(By the way, since we were facing Aranda, I went and dug out this old, old issue of Real Madrid’s magazine (back when they had a quality one) from when they won La Octava.  They have profiles of each of the players who participated that year, and under Carlos Aranda, it says “Lo mejor de Aranda es que, si mantiene esta progresión, será protagonista decisivo de los próximos títulos que conquiste el Real Madrid.”  This translates to, “the best thing about Aranda is that if he continues with this progression, he’ll be a decisive part of the next few titles that Real Madrid wins.”  Except for the fact that he was gone shortly after and may have been able to deny Real Madrid a title this season.)

EIGHT. The Xabi Alonso pose section.™

Oooh, feisty Xabi!!!

Let me help you with that, Xabi…

NINE. Iker’s profile, and his patented, “I cannot believe this is my defense” face.

TEN. Cristiano and his expressions.  We get both nodding and the shaking of his head.

ELEVEN. Following the game, the players showed some optimism (yes, I know they have no choice except to say these types of things, but I choose to believe that they still believe we have a chance):

Cristiano – we have to be positive.  I know it’s difficult but we have to think about the positive things.  We tried during the entire game but we couldn’t win.

Arbel0a – the Liga is not over.  We know that seven points are a lot based on what the Liga is like, but there are a lot of matchdays left and we’re not going to give up.

Iker – the seven points are an important difference, but not insurmountable.  It’s clear that we took a step backwards, but that doesn’t mean that everything is lost.  We’re going to continue working.

Xabi – there’s a lot left to play and we have to continue fighting.

TWELVE. Front and back.™  Well, I know today is a hard day, so we just have two backs, one of which is Sergio Ramos.

THIRTEEN. He didn’t have his best game, but how cute are his red cheeks?  I want to pinch them.

FOURTEEN. Win or lose, our boys still look fantastic, even if Cristiano did use up the entire gel supply in Navarra (and probably La Rioja too) after the game.

Sergio’s hair is just so shiny and glossy, no?

FIFTEEN. Meanwhile, a bright note was handed to us by Castilla, which beat Extremadura 3-1 behind goals by MFC, Joselu and an Extremadura own goal.  Let’s hope Álvaro Borja Morata Martín’s streak continues and continues!

And Mahamadou Diarra made his debut with Monaco, playing all 90 minutes against Marseille.  However, the game ended 0-0.  It’s great to see him return to action!

SIXTEEN. Looking ahead:  the team trained behind closed doors this morning, their first session in preparation for Wednesday’s Copa del Rey semifinal second leg.

SEVENTEEN. I’m sure everyone could use some encouragement right now.

I know we lost, I know there’s now a seven-point deficit between Madrid and Barcelona.  I know we didn’t play wonderful football, I know that we looked tired, I know that we couldn’t even manage to score against Osasuna.  I know that we’re in a scoring rut, I know that some of the tactical decisions have been iffy, and I know that Barcelona is fantastic.

However, I don’t believe this Liga is over until it’s mathematically over.  Stranger things have happened, and while Madrid has never overcome a seven-point deficit, it is still possible.  Remember the remontadas of previous seasons?  I might grumble, complain or switch part of my allegiance temporarily to Getafe at times, but my faith in this team is unshakable.  As is my support for them.  I know they won’t give up, and that’s why I won’t give up on them either.

Let’s not forget that we’re still alive in the other two competitions as well.  And if this season is not The Season, well the next one can be, once we have everyone healthy, and a year of experience playing together under our belts.

The bottom line: hey, at least we’re not Atlético!

    Very nice edition too Unamadridista, despite the loss!

    I do not see this loss as a drama too, it happens. It must hapen to any team, indeed, at some point, that’s life. No drama.

    I say it all the time and this time too, Mou said it’s a team under construction and I do believe him (besides seeing it;-)

    oh, and the gifs are cute!

    I agree with you Una.. The competition is not over yet!

    Why do the ‘fans’ of the team we play against throw things at our players?! That’s so disrespectful! Plus someone could get hurt, like Iker last week.. Do they throw things at Barca-players too?

    Once again, we spill points without Xabi on the field, that’s concerning :S

    This totally made my day, and healed a few of my game blues 🙂

    You are right they are 7 points away but we got alot of games left! I recall a certain Barca side that lost their 28 game streak in copy del rey to Real Betis couple of weeks ago.

    Which just goes to show they have their “bad days” too

    So I am holding on to my thin thin thin hope of them winning la liga, and now concentrate more on copa del rey and champions league!!!

    Hala Madrid!!!!

    awww Ozi is soo adorable, i want to pinch him too. Una you seem to have jumped on the Ozi-wagon as well!

    I guess we’ve all been waiting for this day to happen (losing points) so it’s better now than later since we’ve been scraping by in the last few games. It’s like when Spain lost to Switzerland in the world cup, but it was still early so still possible to turn things around.

    I sure hope RM can beat Sevilla on Wednesday so we get at least 3 clasico this season!

    The last line made me laugh ! Atletico *were* pretty dire yesterday. I am trying to keep the faith and keep saying to myself that it isn’t turly over until the fat lady sings [or whatever], although we really did not look good for most of the game yesterday – and on top of it Barcelona look unstoppable right now. But as you say, a lot of things can happen in the next few months, and perhaps Barcelona will slip up. Its a bit troubling though when the teams’ destiny is not entirely in their hands (but of course that was sort of the case before yesterday’s match anyhow). I will be seeing Barca in a few weeks so will do my best to cast some sort of hex on them 🙂

    As they say in England, the match is not over until the last ball is bowled. So, yes, Liga is not won until the last ‘meaningful’ game is played.

    Keep your heads up, Madridistas!

    Ooh I have much to say.
    Okay first of all win or lose I am a Madridista para siempre. The loss did sting a little but after an hour I said to myself well we can’t win everything and let’s face it if we did then it would be kinda boring. (I am not implying that we lose more often however!) I like that we can watch our players come back from a defeat and soar. This is Real Madrid we’re talking about they’re going to come back. I think it was Pep Guardiola that said a few weeks ago,”If there’s a team with nine lives, it’s Madrid.” Sure some of you might say that he said that prior to the seven point lead but if he has that faith I guess I should call it, then WE should too. And like Una said we still have CDR and Champions so let’s keep the support for our boys alive.

    Ugh all this hate needs to stop. I’m not trying to generalize that all Spanish fans are crazy-bottle-throwing-psychos but what’s up with all this debris stuff on the field? This seems to happen at EVERY game. Seriously I understand that football is like religion in Spain (and perhaps in most other places maybe I just don’t understand because I’m from the States) but that shit shouldn’t fly, literally. It’s just unacceptable and I always wonder where security is and when they’re going to start taking action. Are they waiting for someone to get hurt? Like Iker could have been? People who can’t act in a civil manner towards others shouldn’t be allowed to remain in the stadium. And I feel that way about our fans too not just everyone else.
    I too think Cristiano’s words were spot on but yes he’s probably going to get the shorter end of the stick for saying them. It’s ‘funny’ how he can get fouled 23453464357 times but if he so much as touches another player everyone is like ‘hey he fouled that guy!’. Really?!! But of course since this is coming from Madrid fans, well we’re not allowed to talk. -_-

    Ok angry rant over. On the brighter side, Sergio’s hair. Dios mio! It’s just beautiful! And Ozi looks good when he’s mad hehe. (sigh) If your moods aren’t lifted yet just remember that in addition to having a GREAT team we have the most beautiful one for sure.

    So I suppose let’s hope for the best! Thanks Una for a great analysis of this game. It was awesome as usual and a loss broken down so well by you always makes me feel a lot better.

    Hala Madrid!

    Are there any updates on Xabi and Marcelo’s flu? I’m still impressed of Xabi taking the pitch while being sick, though I’m a bit worried at sitting on the bench might not be the best for his health while he’s sick 😦

    at least we’re not Atlético? i don’t know whether this is enough to cheer ourselves dear Una. We can also say, at least we are second to the best team in the world. The more i watch Barca the more i see the gap between us and them. I may endorse a statement by a British coach, who said, that you will win Barca only of they have eaten bad food i.e. one should rely ONLY on their under-performance, not on one’s extra ordinary work,because they are magic. How hard to admit this, my god…
    No one can complain about the referee; he was almost telling RM, go go into the 18 yard area and i will help you get a penalty…he was clearly sympathetic to RM.
    I love Ozil’s face at minute 60 or 70. His eyes become surrounded by a tomato color.
    Una, I wish you can find a short clip of his departure from the field, where he slightly and elegantly touches his substitute’ s hands, sooooooooooooo lovely….

    Speaking as a cule fan–who is, yes, popping in, I have to say that there’s no way the league is over yet. I know this, Pep knows this, and so do the Barca players. Ruts happen to every team, and nothing is settled until the end of the season. So good luck, and see you guys in April.

      Oddly, I feel strangely relieved – I wasn’t even particularly upset afterwards. The way fans and commentators have been talking you’d have thought Mourinho would get the treble in his first year at the club! What planet are these people living on? It takes even TSO/Harry Potter two years to get the treble with other clubs- and in less competitive leagues (sorry Serie A fans – there’s no comparison).

      We’ve looked exhausted and lacking in tactical discipline. I think the one follows the other. When you have tactical discipline and a unified group you don’t concede goals and when you don’t concede goals you normally win the match. You don’t end up one down and desperate – you can play a calmer game and let the other side panic.

      Mou can now concentrate on getting those things back for us and worry less about the league (the Decima is still more important). We need to get some joy back. I can wait for titles – this is my bloody team – it will always be my team. I can wait. I’d rather that for now they just had fun, became a unified group on the pitch, and felt the happiness they used to feel when they first started playing as children.

    Exactly!! There is still a lot left of the season. We all know that Barcelona plays beautiful football, but.. how long did it take for them to get into a rhythm with each other? Mou is building a team from scratch, this is their first year playing together and they have improved so much alread!! We cannot lose hope. Also think about this; No one can guarantee that Barcelona won’t slip, or that their players won’t get injured, or that they won’t lose a game.. no one can. If you truly support this team you won’t turn your back on them!!

    Uf, the going is definitely getting tough, but not only do I still (sort of) have faith in RM, I have faith in some other teams in La Liga to put up a good hard fight against Barça – let’s not forget that Athletic managed to hold them to a tie on two separate occasions in the Copa, and Villarreal and Valencia aren’t exactly looking shabby these days either… it’s just too early in the season to give up already!

    I like the recap (as always) even though it was a crappy game..

    I just heard that three players from castilla are going to the swedish club halmstad bk on loan this season (in Sweden the season starts in April). I understand if this isn’t of any interest to you but it’s kinda big here, it was on the news right after the news about Fernando Torres and Chelsea. It’s not my favourite team but I’m looking forward to see what they can do since halmstad haven’t been doing too good lately. They’re supposed to be arriving this week so I just hope they’re prepared to face the Swedish winter.. 🙂

    I’ve watched the game 3 times now – I am plainly a masochist, but the second half was thrilling in its way. It wasn’t Ozi’s “best game” – but over all he played as well as he ever does – which was very well indeed. In fact, he was the only player who looked like his usual self.

    And 4 clear scoring chances created are still 4 clear scoring chances! He did his job.

    I’m with you on his cheeks though – I’d like to pinch them too! I’m so pleased he doesn’t look as ill and tired as he did at other matches earlier in the season. He looked healthy and energetic, which means Mourinho’s team have been doing themselves proud strengthening him up.

I hope the club does not kick Mou out if at the end of the season nothing has been accomplished. I think he needs more time to work with all of them, as he’s barely getting used to work with them.

    i am proud of our team. one match away from the final in the copa. i know, I KNOW, that we will get past our lyon block this year. and you know what? perhaps barca is playing truly inspiring football right now, but we are only 2 games in to the 2nd half of the season. they are not invincible. and if they can get through undefeated in liga, this madridista will tip her hat b/c that will truly be an amazing achievment.

There is a LONG way to go till the trophy in May, and you can be sure the people who matter at Barcelona haven’t given y’all up for dead yet, not by a long stretch.

    This is one match I am glad I missed. To be honest, I am not quite sure how this whole culture of throwing garbage on the pitch and at players even exists. I complain about living in the states ALL THE TIME & am always saying I am going to ex-patriate myself somewhere in Europe, but this sort of thing never happens at sporting events! I am really astonished that this happens all the time.

    FP better not mess this team up. This is a really great side Jose has put together. It takes more than six months to put together a cohesive team. I am convinced FP is obsessed with beating Barcelona & nothing else.

    Hi Una!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, but never had a chance to comment. Even though I’m a cule, I love the passion and love you show for Los Merengues day in and day out. I’m proud that you, as a fellow female football fan, can appreciate the beauty of this sport (as well as those who play it :P). I loved what you wrote about not giving up on your team as long as they continue fighting! True words by a true fan of the game! 7 points is a large gap, but not insurmountable. I for one (along with countless Barca fans) will be anxious until the very last day of the season.

    some blogger posed a question: did Mou exhaust his players in the recent matches?
    my answer to that is YES.
    Mou did not rotate his players and the result was losing 5 points in the last two matches.
    unfortunately, the players looked tired, resource less, and with no solutions what so ever.
    and again, osasuna managed to park their bus in front of the goal (as almeira did) and strangely didn’t do that against barca?????!!!!!!!!
    im depressed and sad, but its not over till it’s over.
    the race is long and we have to keep the faith.

    I’m so emotionally attach to my team, and I cried the night they lost. Since it ended at 4am my timezone, I immediately went to bed. My sleep was so restless and their lost continued in my dream, where the end result was 4-0. It wasn’t a good day for me, for real.
    That being said, I stand behind them no matter what. It sucks that their fate lays in the hand of others (barca losing), but anything can happen. There’s always next season. Who are we kidding, Mou is not a genie who can make all of our wishes come true in a blink of an eye. If it’s not this year, there are always other years to come. All they need are support and trust from the people surrounding them.

    Btw, my country’s ambassador had a meeting with FP in Madrid, and he said that hopefully RM will come to my country for a friendly match in 2012!! FP also said that the number of madridistas in my country is even bigger than the one in Madrid, so they’ll be happy to visit us here. I’m dying 😀

    It has become a tradition to comment your “in case you missed it” texts. Your comments are priceless, once again. Ramos acting like a big brother, Özils cheeks and Cris nodding.
