        These guys are cluess really. They have no idea of the word "competitive". Goalless draw could really be as competitive as 8 goals match. No one wants to loose a game.

                                I watched the match and it was a great match & the players from both teams put a 100% effort in.

                                        I know this will be very unpopular but in my opinion what Valverde did was anti-football. I'm not saying I hate that he did it but it seems like a loophole in the rules. Stopped what (to be fair it was morata so probably would have missed) but should be a near guaranteed goal. Only repercussion was a free kick and real were down a player for basically no time at all. Seems abusive. Im A neutral fan so I dont care who wins but this seemed pretty rotten and I could understand athletico fans being outraged.

                                              So 6-1 against aston villa is a competitive game but a long 2 hour derby game looked like a preseason game

                                                      And yet the actual preseason friendly turfed out a 7-3....lets be honest though, how often do you get a high scoring El Derbi fixture in competitive fixtures?

                                                          the problem with ESPN FC, is that most of them during their time of playing, they wanted to play for Real Madrid but it didn't work out, and Real Madrid didn't look their it kinda getting on their nerves up to date.

If, I may ask, the ESPN FC, what is a good game to you guys? what are the characteristics of a good game?

You haven’t watched the matches and just because it was in the middle east everyone has to sort of say it was a boring game. That talking point is obvious in all of your videos about this Spanish super cup.
                                                                                            Besides, benzema, Hazard, and Bale are injured and that’s why they don’t play. Pay a bit of attention. Watch the matches. Then “analyze”
