defense lead by Carlos Puyol.Anyway, this year everyone has seen what Real Madrid can do in the attacking part of the pitch but their Achilles heel is their defense. With the exception of Pepe none is able to handle the air balls well even against sides as modest as Villarreal and some otherclubswhich i won’t mention.
The goals conceded by Real Madrid against Lazio and Werder Bremen were appalling and our World Player Of The Year 2006-2007 was seen embarrassed by some unknown striker of which i can’t even remember the name of. I think Real Madrid should buy some big players this January and by big i do not mean big name players but physically big players, both defenders and a attacker because without Van Nistelrooy Real Madrid does not look half a side as they are with him. I would suggest players like Mertsacker, Kolo Toure of Arsenal and Adriano of Inter Milan.
