I cannot put into words how bad Schalke are. I was expecting them to come flying out the blocks, instead they let United dominate.

Real, Barca tonight. I'm going to go for a Madrid win 3-1

Barca have been on the decline in my opinion. They are not as free flowing as at the start of the season. Fatigue maybe?

Real are also on the rise and as a Chelsea fan i do have some biased towards Jose so hope they win.

Also Messia didn't really should up in the last game and Barca do sort of need him.

Come on Real (Salt Lake)

Why do you think Schalke were bad?
Maybe Man Utd were too good, eh?
Have you heard Raul's interview?
He said Schalke were playing on their level, Man Utd played on a different one.
It was great away performance and excelent tactic by Sir Alex.
They just killed Schalke with their passing and flowing football.
It's only game one though, but what a great result that is.

As for today's game, I predict 1:0 Madrid, Ronaldo to score.

Because Schalke are not a big team and do not have the players. They had to have someone on Carrick, Giggs and Rooney. Hard job but these 3 players killed them. Add Hernandez and Valencia to this. And maybe Park.

No, it's not up there with Zidane's volley, Ronaldo's goal against Porto, and Balotelli's freekick. It was a great goal though. Credit where credit is due....

i never said is it the best i asked if it is up there, and for sheer skill, speed, movement, balance and finishing i certainly think that is up there with the best goals i have ever seen, the 3 players you mentioned goals were wonder strikes, and quality goals, but messis wasn't a wonder strike, it was a maisy run and finish, so its hard to compare, all great goals though
