I was not really excited when his name was initially being linked with replacing Jose. I wanted a fresh face like Laudrup but I think all things considered even though I maybe would have slightly preferred Jupp, I don't have a problem with Carlo and am hopeful that he will give us the same stability that we had during Jose's tenure without all of the bullshit.

The latest rumour is that Ancelotti isn't going to keep Kaka and the club will let him walk for free so he can join MLS. bounce

Paul Clement confirming via twitter that he will be Ancelotti's #2 at Real Madrid, the same as he was at PSG and Chelsea before. Hmmm....an assistant whose native tongue is English....

Apparently, PSG and Real Madrid agreed to play two friendly matches as compensation for Ancelotti breaking his contract.

Meh, Ancelotti. Has a Capello feeling about this. Though I like that Zidane is added as assistant.

I'm hopeful that if Paulinho comes it would be to replace Khedira and the midfield would look like:


--------Paulinho-------X. Alonso--------Modric

A 3 man midfield with Alonso being primarily defensive and distributing and Paulinho being defensive with a penchant for going forward and Modric who is also a responsible distributor of the ball. Absolutely fine with me. But it raises the prospects of Isco and/or Di Maria plus Ozil fighting for the right wing spot. Even if Di Maria is sold that means one of Ozil and Isco will be on the bench because Ronaldo won't be rotated although perhaps Isco can play partime in midfield as the link(Modric's position) to attack.

I'm guesing our fullbacks will have a much more active role under Ancelotti however so perhaps the balance will still be tipped in favour of offensive football.

-----özil------isco
---ronaldo---benzema

with marcelo and carvajal bombing forward

paulinho!!where is all this hype coming from, brazil can`t even dominate there opponents, there central midfield looks fairly average

Re: Real Madrid CF 2013/14

Post by Jaime on Wed Jun 26, 2013 5:53 pm

So I would imagine a 4-3-1-2 that might look something like this:

-------------------------Casillas

Arbeloa/Carvajal-----Varane-----S. Ramos-----Marcelo

---------Paulinho--------Alonso-------Modric

------------------------Isco/Ozil

------------Ronaldo--------------Benzema/New Forward?

Now another variation is a more traditional 4-3-3 with Ozil or Isco or Jese on the wings:

-------------------------Casillas

Arbeloa/Carvajal-----Varane-----S. Ramos-----Marcelo

---------Paulinho--------Alonso-------Modric

Ozil/Ronaldo/Jese-------Benzema------Ronaldo/Isco/Jese

Isco can and has played deeper for Malaga as well so he could even interchange with Modric at times.

Especially in the 4-3-1-2 variant, we would need the fullbacks to push up to give the team width which would probably give the nod to Carvajal in a lot of sitautions.

No word on a goalkeeper coach as yet. Like TM said still rumours that Cannavaro could join the coaching staff and Karanka is still there too so far.

Absolutely

My friends were always saying I was being a contrarian for prefering Cavani to Falcao but this game today illustratres my preference perfectly. Paulinho looks like the type of box to box player I hoped Khedira would be when he first arrived.
