Real Madrid 3 – 1 Barcelona : Scoring Summary

Barcelona: Neymar (4′)
Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo (PEN 35′), Pepe (50′), Karim Benzema (61′)

The preeminent story line going into the game was Luis Suarez making his official Barcelona debut, after being handed a starting position for the first time Real Madrid alongside Neymar and Messi, but as the game moved on, the story line was how dominant Real Madrid and their counter-attacking was, as they took the first Clásico of the season as they beat Barcelona 3-1.

~~  Can we just acknowledge the fact that Pogba re-upped for that long…..  Wonder how much extra money Juve threw at Pogba to get that fifth year in the contract…. And what that buyout number looks like.   Big time for Juve.

Juventus Football Club is delighted to announce that Paul Pogba has today put pen to paper on a new contract which keeps him with the club until 2019.

The agreement was confirmed this morning at the club’s shareholders’ assembly by CEO Giuseppe Marotta, who said: “Before coming here we signed Paul Pogba’s contract extension which binds us until 2019.”

Since joining from Manchester United in the summer of 2012, the 21-year-old’s phenomenal performances have seen him become a pivotal member of the Bianconeri’s Scudetto winning squads over the past two seasons.

On the international scene, he has established himself as fully-fledged member of the France national team and this summer won the World Cup’s Young Player award following a series of eye-catching displays for Les Bleus in Brazil.

MLS Insider :: Cubo Torres – From The Streets of Mexico To MLS

Filed under: Culture & Lifestyle, MLS News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | Major League Soccer Highlights, Soccer News, Videos

Cubo

~~  Take some time out of your day and watch this….. There’s always a player backstory that very few know about in this league.  They all have an INCREDIBLE journey that usually hasn’t been told.  And to hear where Cubo Torres came from, what he’s doing in Major League Soccer and how his commitment and play in this league has led to being called up by El Piojo and El Tri…… Great stuff.

By the way :: Tip of the hat to Piojo and the Mexico National Team for allowing this kind of access… Inside Mexico’s locker room with video during their game team talk?  On the bus and inside their meetings and meals?  Check.  Great look behind the curtain….

According to wiki, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pelé, was born on either October 21 or 23, 1940 … his twitter is retweeting all of the birthday wishes today, so we’re going to go with today. Doesn’t matter. Its Pelé. God flow. No need for a reason to put up highlights, but its his bday so we’ll throw up this highlight video as the one.

But beyond that, do yourself a favor (even though we’ve all done it before) and go to youtube and just type in “Pelé highlights”. Then sit back and watch. You will be transfixed. God flow. Its just disgusting how good this man is.

* By the way, I loved this content series during the World Cup this summer… It was really slept on, but we were given access to Pelé. For the entire summer, he was shooting youtube videos, posting on twitter, posting on instagram and doing some really fun stuff. This was one of my favorite videos:

Trailer Alert :: Luis Suarez to make his El Clásico Debut

Filed under: Barcelona, Culture & Lifestyle, Luis Suarez, Real Madrid

So many story lines for Saturdays El Clásico, but this one, is the most important. Luis Suarez will be playing… will he be playing with Messi and with Neymar all at the same time? I’m so curious.

* The big question is how I’m going to watch this game at 9a pst when the Sounders v. Galaxy game kicks off at 11.30a pst. We’ll be at CenturyLink well before kick-off, but I don’t want to miss ANY of this game. I’ll have to make sure the mophie is charged up!
