An exhilarating El-Clasico

The second clasico of the season just brought back life and glamour to the LaLiga season.Real will now have to leave behind the defeat and remain consistent to keep up the one match in hand advantage.Barcelona consequently should keep on winning expecting that Real Madrid can go astray in any of the remaining matches.


Lionel Messi equalled Stefano's record of most goals in the Clasico and even managed to score the winner that took his tally to 500goals for Barcelona.Critics were silenced as Messi did hit goals in a high pressure match.Even when people tell that Tikitaka is obsolete we could see  Pique screaming to keep the ball in possession and it did tire the Real players out.In Sergi Roberto,La Masia has produced another gem,versatile in all positions and a round nail in a round peg.

Asensio and Hamish Rodrigues proved their worth and class in their restricted gametime.Cristiano Ronaldo,though missed few open chances but it would be disastrous if people judge him with a game's performance.It proves after all these legends are humans too.Casemiro put Zidane into a quandary with his unnecessary tackles.It was Casemiro;s absence that led Ramos to commit a dangerous fowl on Messi and being sent off..Real showed its clear intention was a win as even after managing a to tie the score they went on an all out attack mode that boomeranged in the injury time goal by Messi.

Keyler Navas and Marc Ter Stegen were the reason for the scoreline being kept away from further increase.The number of times both the keepers denied open chances are a testimony to how offensive minded the teams were.

Refereeing in  Laliga has sunk to a a very low accuracy and quality that it takes the stink out of the mighty encounter.From denying Real a penalty for Umtiti's foul on Ronaldo and Mrcelo's elbowing on Messi,referees  were digging their pits of scorn.

Needless to say the game was a classic in all sense,passion,aggression,game standards,ability,you name it.Lets enjoy this beautiful game of two biggest clubs and needless to say two legendary players  of our times,with less hate,envy but more admiration and appreciation.

3 step guide to Improve your game

This is a 3 step quick guide to realign your mind to improve your game.

1)Play and practice daily

Thought you would reach the top of your game without playing daily?Sorry my brother, you are mistaken.
I would advice you to practice for 1 hr a day and play a minimum half hour game.Don't skip any aspect of the practice and play concept.It is the key to unravel your footballing skills.
Why practice?-Refine your technical skills.After all do a drill as many times that you won't get it wrong on the field.
Why play?-You maybe able to say a speech in front of your mirror but to a crowd of 100 in a hall, it is certainly nervous right?This is what happens when you are perfect on the practice field but fail to impress in the main team.The mentality to do the right thing at the right time can only be gained through experience.So match experience matters a lot.

2)Have a long term plan

Aim a target like playing in the first eleven for a championship or if you are the first team aim at the number of goals you should score for a season.This plan is to keep you motivated throughout.Day in day out dream of that goal to be achieved.Our mind is so powerful that  we coalesce into that plan over days.

3)Work hard in silence

Work hard in silence,let your Lambhorghini make the sound.You might reach the checkpoints that you had marked but don't be happy or contented till the penultimate dream is achieved.Not money,not trophies but to realise your full potential and to be on top of your game on every single day.

All the best Dreamer.
