Real Madrid transfers 2008-2009 – part I

Now that the season is over, it’s time to look forward to the future, see what Real Madrid can improve in prospect about next season. It’s clearly that the biggest frustration this season was the early exit from the Champions League, when we were eliminated by Roma. This is the fourth consecutive season that Real Madrid can’t pass the first knock-out round. This is such a shame, because we have great players, great technical staff, great supporters. Because we don’t want this to happen next year, we hope that the staff will make the right choices about transfers. And I’m not talking only about who needs to come, but who needs to stay.

Casillas is one of the best 5 keepers in the world, nobody can question this. But Real Madrid needs to have a good backup keeper.
Dudek is a great keeper, but he’s 35 years old and I think he will retire in a year or two. I’m not sure if he he will stay next season with us, because he was given just a few chances by Schuster.
Codina, 27 has played just one game in Real Madrid shirt this year, in the final game against Levante. Altough he conceded 2 goals, he’s keeping was awesome. Again, he was given little time to prove himself. I guess between him and Dudek, I’d have to choose Codina, he’s much more younger, and I think Dudek should be given the oportunity to play for the rest of his carreer.

Sergio Ramos should defenetly stay, he’s the best left-side defender in the world. Hi’s pace and technique are awesome, and he gives everything when he’s on field. He’s like a warrior, has quality to be the next leader of Real Madrid. Milan and Chelsea are constantly making offers for him, I just hope the board of directors are aware of the disaster that could happen if Ramos would leave.
Michel Salgado will play at least one more season for Real Madrid, after that, I hope he retires. He was a great player, very devoted to the colours of the club, gave everytime everything.
I have to admit, if we didn’t had Miguel Torres, we would be in a incomfortable situation on the left side of the defense. Miguel Torres can play on the right as well as on the left, so this is very good. There were times when 2 of our 3 left-backs were unavailable, so he was realy handy. Many say that Salgado and Torres don’t rise themselves to Ramos’ level (I agree with that), and that RM should buy a world class backup for Ramos, someone like Dani Alves (I don’t agree). You can’t really expect that Alves could stay a whole season on the bench. He’s a great player, he doesn’t deserve such a treatment. I’m sorry Cicinho left us for Roma, but after reading some of his statements before our game with Roma, and seeing the brazilian manifesting itself in such a disrespectful way when Roma scored against us, I don’t feel any compassion for him. He never really cared about what Real Madrid means.

    Real Madrid would never be the same team they used to be. They need to start spending big and bring in more superstars. I remember when they had Zidane, Figo, Ronaldo, Raul, Roberto Carlos, Bekham and the Spanish stars. They used to be fantastic to watch, Come on Real, sort it out.

    Altough Real Madrid’s “galactico” era is over, the players from this team are exceptional. Look at Casillas, he never played so good. Sergio Ramos is the best left-side defender in the world, Sneijder has great vision, Guti as well. Guti was mostly on the bench in the “galactico” era, he never had opportunities to proove his talent. Raul seems to be back to his form, and ruud is awesome. Having played only 24 games this season, he scored 16 goals.

    I think the main reason for Real Madrid’s failure in Europe was the instability of the staff, the coaching staff. After del Bosque was fired, everything went wrong, there were many many managers, 5 or 6 in 3 years. Schuster seems to be the perfect man for the job. I think he needs a little more time to consolidate this team, many new players arived in the past 2 years, maybe they need a little more time to accomodate themselves.
