Ronaldo is indeed better than Giroud, I'll admit. With him and Walcott it's still splitting hairs though.
Must be nice to play in Kroos' team. My god, that guy is not a human, I am convinced, he's some advanced form of AI that Merkel and the US government have schemed up conspiratorially...maybe Florentino's mafia is in there somewhere. Every time I watch him at the game itself I'm left in awe. He does everything perfectly, there's no way there's actual blood running through those veins.
Casemiro is fucking awful. My friend who's an Arsenal fan (and, I think like a few on here, closet madridista) texts me saying Casemiro is better than Coquelin. Nah. At that level of shitness it's splitting hairs, but I honestly think Casemiro is equally or as shit. Every time I watch him in the stadium, it's the inverse of Kroos, I realise he's even shitter than I thought. I understand partly why Modric is having not so great a season this one, he practically has to play as an interior RB to give Casemiro an extremely easy option to pass, and Kroos as an interior LB on the other side, though Kroos' advanced AI abilities mean he still dominates the game somehow. Amazing how he's stealing a living in the Madrid first team...can only imagine how good Madrid would be with a good manager who set them up with Kroos as the 6, or a pivot of Kroos and Modric with Isco just ahead forming a midfield 3.
Definitely the worst version of Atléti in the recent years this one. The magic has run out, they were lucky to draw Leicester.
