Rafa showing Ramos how to defend. If he can make Luiz look incredibly competent, he can do the same with Ramos.

Under Rafa when he was with Chelsea. Only manager to date to make Luiz either be competent or give the impression of competency. In hindsight, an incredible feat.

And then they splash £35 million on a TOP talent like, Andy Carroll and subsequently secure new silverware in the cabinet for the next 5 seasons!

Caught a few minutes (from the highlights) of their friendly against Roma and Rafa employed Bale in a free role and he looked better.
Is that the first time he is playing in that position ?

Seems Rafa surely knows the trick to survive lol..

I'm pretty sure they won the double during his first season at the club. He did pretty well when it mattered, too hmm This is the part where you ask me what "a double" means Laughing

Well.. I don't really blame Bale for it, as much as I blame Florentino Perez for pressuring Ancelotti into starting him in every game, although his performances were sometimes so tragically poor that they helped the other team more than they helped his own team. It was quite an achievement by any standard, and I've witnessed fans of mid to bottom-table EPL teams jeer on him during the past season.

I don't blame him, and him only, for the team not winning any trophies this year, but I honestly believe that the team would've performed better with 10 men in the majority of those games. I hope Benitez will, at the very least, have the balls to bench him if he doesn't perform well under his management. He can be a top, top player when utilized correctly, but he clearly hasn't shown that in 2014-15. It was a season to forget.. that probably won't be forgotten anytime soon, in his case.

something you gotta understand with madrid fans is they expect consistency and greatness.
bale's first season as above average, his second was far below average
they mostly think on a whats going on today rather than yesterday. (except when it comes to trophies)

In which la la land do you live that you think Benitez will bench Bale? The sole reason Ancelotti was sacked was due to not getting the best out of Bale. Laughing

Casillas' agent:

"The squad knows who [Perez's favourites] are and so does the coach," the agent added.

"The only clash he had with [former Madrid coach] Ancelotti was over Bale. He thinks that Bale is the best in the world.

"He doesn’t know how to take care of the Ballon d’Or winner [Cristiano Ronaldo] he already has in the squad. Bale is going to play wherever he likes.

I was under the impression that all top teams expected consistency and greatness. I'm pretty sure fans of any top team would've been frustrated by Bale's extremely sub-par performances this season, too, but what do I know? Rolling Eyes

I don't think he will. I think Benitez will do whatever Flo tells him to do. I definitely hope he'll show some cojones, though.
