IMO Real have the coach this time around. The only thing we can hope for this time is Florentino Perez doing what he does best and fxxking things up. Perez is the guy that signed Zidane, Ronaldo, Figo and David Beckham, then hired Carlos Quireoz(Who had won nothing as a domestic manager) and proceeded to undermine him at every opportunity.
It was Quireoz who wanted to keep Makelele and Perez refused, it was Queiroz who wanted to to sign Pepe for 2 mil, and Perez said "centre backs didn't sell shirts" and sure enough Real eventually signed him for 30 mil. Those Galaticos won 2 major trophies in 6 years which included a 3 year barren spell.
Oh yes in Florentino we trust.
Aquilani is on. I think he will be immense for Liverpool, he suits their style to a tee.
