Well, Los Blancos lost leg one in the Spanish Supercup away to Barcelona today. But, you know what? That’s okay. We may have lost, but we earned two valuable away goals. We also took the initial lead. And, most significantly, we did so without Pepe. We might have actually maintained a draw or a win had we included our beloved central defender. Ronaldo scored his first goal of the 2012-2013 campaign, as did Di Maria, the latter of which worked hard to steal the ball from Valdez. Both goals were nice.

If it wasn’t clear already, Albiol really is a deficient defender. Sell him off and replace him, please! We need a different backup for Pepe and Ramos.
