Beating Barcelona Is Like Winning The League - Real Madrid's Rafael Van Der Vaart
The cultured midfielder is well aware of the importance of beating the champions...
Real Madrid playmaker Rafael van der Vaart has claimed that defeating Barcelona is on a par with winning the Primera Division title.
The former Hamburg player is gearing up for Sunday evening’s crucial clash at the Camp Nou, in the knowledge that a win would send Los Blancos four points clear in the table.
The Dutchman reckons that defeating the Blaugrana would be as good as lifting the trophy come the end of the season, and speaking in his native publication Bild am Sonntag, he said of the match, “We must forget the defeats that we suffered last season, because they hurt a lot.
“I think we have a good chance of defeating them, it’s almost as valuable as winning the league.”
Van der Vaart has been on the periphery of the first team this season following the new additions in the summer, and German giants Bayern Munich have been linked with a bid for the player, who is contracted to the club until 2013.
He had initially not been considered a part of coach Manuel Pellegrini’s plans, but has recently found himself on the bench, and was a second half substitute in the match versus FC Zurich in midweek.
Idk...his talents are being wasted at Real Madrid
For your time
ESTÁ PROHIBIDO EN LOS CAMPOS DE FÚTBOL
Cristiano, apuntado con un láser al sacar una falta durante el Clásico
- Trataron de cegar al delantero portugués durante el Clásico
Posteriormente, ya en la segunda mitad, fue Pepe el agredido por los punteros láser tras recibir una clara falta de Henry.
La utilización de láser se ha vuelto muy usual en los campos de fútbol, aunque está prohibido y penado. El Nápoles ya fue multado con 15.000 euros por una práctica similar en un partido del Scudetto.
basically its saying that during el classico, barcelona fans were using laser pointers on ronaldo and pepe. .......now i no wat that was when i saw that weird green light flashing on pepes face.....
use of lasers is prohibited and they punish it too, it happened before and the fine was 15, 000 euros.
i.....dont really no wat to say.....
Good News: This didn't prevent Chelsea from winning and pictures from being taken.
Drogba is happy, which means I should be happy, and other conclusions.

MANCHESTER CITY EYE TORRES
Manchester City are about to launch a £50m missile to get a hold of the best striker in the world- Fernando Torres.
City are planning to use their financial muscle to force Liverpool FC into selling Torres. The hastened effort is probably caused by the string of draws Man City have had (7 to be exact).
A source said - 'Make no mistake about it, this club is ambitious. They believe there is not a player in the world who is outside their budget and that includes Torres. The owners are in it for the long haul. Initially, their number one target is the Champions League next season. But they see that only as the launching pad for greater things. They are now probably the wealthiest club on the globe - now they want to be the best.'
MARK HUGHES MAY GET FIRED
Manchester City's latest draw may be just the tip of the iceburg and the owners may want to replace him. Sources claim that Guus Hiddink, Roberto Mancini and Jose Mourinho are all in line for the job. Hughes' job has been on the line ever since the 3-3 draw with Burnley.
Sheikh Mansour, the owner of Man City, will most probably make a decision whether to keep by the end of the week. A week in which Manchester City face Arsenal and Chelsea.
Also adding pressure to the situation is the fact that Guus Hiddink has been on the prowl for a new job ever since Russia's failure to qualify.
Hughes admitted he was under pressure to get results having spent £200million in the transfer market but claimed the club's Arab owners were willing to be patient. With the recent results, has Hughes run straight through their patience?
Could this be the end?
CHELSEA AND ARSENAL BET OFF
Heres the deal- If Arsenal win, Frank Lampard gives a day's wages (£20 000) to Great Ormond Street Hospital. If Chelsea win, on the other hand, Gooner, Jake Peach, will wear a blues kit for a day.
Back story- Frank Lampard fell in with 12-year-old Jake Peach at a recent awards ceremony and Peach, a leukemia survivor, former patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital and, more importantly, an Arsenal fan, was canny enough to suggest a unique wager to Lampard: If Arsenal win, the Chelsea player will donate a day's wages to the hospital, Arsenal's charity for the season. Peach, however, has to wear a Chelsea shirt for the day if Chelsea is the victor.
MOYES AND RAFA: WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE
Moyes first- “That’s complete nonsense,” he said. “I’ve been here seven and a half years and worked really hard to get here – and I’m working really hard to continue it and try to improve the club. We are in a bad moment just now but I’ll carry on trying to get through this. I’ve got great respect for the supporters. If the fans thought it wasn’t David Moyes they wanted, I would have to think about that, but at the moment I need to keep working hard with the players.
“We’ve not done anything different with effectively the same bunch of players who finished fifth last year. We’re not trying anything weird and wonderful. I’m the man responsible for signing the players here. They should be shaking my hand and thanking me for giving them the chance to play for Everton, because it’s such a great club and for some of them it might not get any better [in terms of size of club they play for].”
Benitez- “When I decided to stay here this year, I knew it could be difficult season because a lot of things could happen,” he said. “But I decided to stay because I wanted to.
“Agustin, Garcia Cortes, Sabido, Garcia Navajas, Camacho, Del Bosque, Stielike, Angel, Cunningham, Santillana, and Juanito – this was the Real Madrid team that played the European Cup final against Liverpool in 1981. I was a Real Madrid fan and I was a player at the club at this time.
“Why am I telling you this? Because when I decided to stay, I wanted to fight for Liverpool. When I signed my new contract, I had other offers of more money, bigger transfer budgets, more options to sign players. But I am still here. Sometimes there are good moments, sometimes there are bad moments but I will carry on fighting for this club.”
Kopites have stayed behind Rafa but a defeat to Everton would be hard to swollow.
“You cannot be a fan and be happy if your team is not winning. I will not be making excuses, as we know that we have to improve,” said Benitez."I am convinced we will finish in the top four – and that is not because I have to say it.”
So, should they stay or should they go?
