Isn't that hypocritical coming from you, who still leads the "Higuain is a choker" circle jerk-- nearly 4 years after Higuain left Real Madrid?

How is it hypocritical? I don't even care about higuain, only call him a choker to bother his fanboys who can't get over him being gone and lose their shit every time benz miss.

We all know hala,adit,val, doc.. Etc are all higuain fanboys and use every opportunity to bash benz, to justify that higs sale was a mistake, yet everybody acts like that not the case, when it very obvious, so no nothing hypocritical about my posts.

Hala just said it again in his post ffs but as usual this forum is filled with sheep so it gets overlooked.

I find it unfair, hypocritical and borderline dishonest that a president would sell players without checking with his manager first, then hold them accountable for not winning as much as he would've liked.

Having said that, I also blame Carlo for being "fine" with it. If there's one thing I've hated more than Florentino's dictatorship, it's the managers who succumbed to it.

Is the job more important to you than your own dignity? Anyone with a shred of self-respect should quit the second a higher-up makes a big decision against their will.

For the very least, Carlo recognises the elite level Higuain has reach. Waiting for GL to accept such things. It's coming along since Juve fans finally accepted it but more progress is needed.

What am curious is what on earth Benzema has done to deserve such an ardent and loyal fan, I mean he is very talented no doubt about that but imo aside from displaying voyeuristic tendancies he is yet to prove what he can do that other decent CFs can't.

You mean to say, Higuain, the forward, had a bad showing in a 3-0 beating against Brazil away?

It's almost inconceivable to imagine that any player for Argentina was below par given the result.

Another revelation from Chad, you sure you haven't considered a personal thread for your various findings? At least invest in a journal, don't let these thoughts go to waste.

He may possess the ability that characterizes an elite striker, but I'm not convinced that he's shaken off his fragile mentality, which has earned him a reputation for being an erratic, sometimes unreliable striker.

Of course he is. Great in the last 3 seasons, record-breakingly good in the last one, great in every game for Juve so far except one or two when paired with Mandzukic.

Most of this anti Pipita goes back to his Real Madrid days. It seems most posters at that time felt that we had two of the best CFs in the game, but it didn't make sense to have both on the same team as there wasn't enough playing time for both of them.

That's when the Madrid camp were (permanently) divided. Those pro Benz and those pro higuain. The story goes that Benz won the battle, but the reality is that difficult back injury and subsequent surgery is why Pepito lost out.

Since then, every mistake by either of them is highlighted by the appropriate anti camp. There is simply no acceptance of both (by so called Madridistas).

But I believe the reality is both are very good CFs, but I also believe that neither of them are elite. I would put Ibra (although he has declined), Suarez, Lewandowski and Aguero as elite.

What he has done consistently at both Atleti and City. Neither one of Benz nor Pepito have been anywhere near that consistent.

While I used to defend Benzema a lot, for what I considered criticism that was uncalled for, following a string of underwhelming performances, I have no doubt in my mind that Higuaín outshone him in pretty much every aspect of their performances when they were both at the club. One distinctive difference between them was that Híguain would consistently either choke or just not get involved at all in the Champions League. Benzema, on the other hand, seemed to always step up his game in this competition, for some reason, and I was under the impression that he was ultimately favored over Híguain for that particular reason.

I have actually always been a fan of both, but for different reasons. I know certain individuals on here have denied that Benzema had a tough start to his career at Madrid, but he undoubtedly did. His relatively low work rate, lack of chemistry with his team mates, seemingly lack of confidence and being prone to error/clumsiness are some of the things that I associate with his first 1-2 seasons at the club (I think I'm being generous here). A substantial portion of the fan base wanted him out after a disappointing start to his Madrid career, and I can at least speak for myself and say that I at one point had completely lost faith in his ability to reach his potential while at Real Madrid.

However, I had been watching him play on a relatively consistent basis for Lyon, and I genuinely wanted to believe that his natural talent would prevail. By contrast, Higuaín didn't only have talent, but was a fan favorite, a hard worker and was often described on these forums as a guy who bled for the shirt. He was a significantly better performer in the league, and I daresay the majority of the fans would've picked him over Benzema, if it were up to them.

Benz stayed, and although it took a god damn long time, I think it's safe to say that he did eventually reach his potential. Meanwhile, Híguain continued to play well at other clubs, and he also continued to, relatively often, bottle it when it mattered most. With this in mind, I don't think that many people ever doubted that he was a top striker, but some people have a good reason to be reserved about naming him among other top strikers that have reliably stepped up to the occasion on a more consistent basis.

Hey Chad, aren't you the same Chad that gets mad when people post similar things about Benzema when he is in a slump?

Aren't you the same Chad who sticks to his guns [water pistols] and remains adamant about Benzema's talent despite said slump and said critics?

But then again, another astute proclamation from one of the greatest minds of our forum

Yes, same old Chad. The only poster here that knows futbol! The rest of us know nothing about futbol!!!!

(By the way he has been saying this to me for 4 years now, despite the fact that I have been watching futbol for double the years that Chad has been on this earth - I'm 69!)

In Chad rants, he has been missing out on what really is happening with Benz at Madrid. He had the summer free (after being outcasted by France) and yet he arrived at training camp out of shape and somehow got himself injured, likely from falling off the sofa. He has played with no energy, almost invisible, while his backup has played well. This backup, Morata has been repeatedly put down by Chad (?what do you expect - any threat to Benz must repeatedly be mocked), yet he has won over his teammates and certainly the Spanish audience. There is an open outcry amongst fans and now media is joining in to have Morata start over Benz. This from a guy who came here as the backup. Morata is not elite by any stretch of the imagination, but surely an Elite like Benz would have no problem parking him on bench!

And in case you haven't noticed, Madrid is renewing all of its players to ensure continuity in the no signing year, except one!! Care to guess who that one is!
