Lyon was better team in these 2 clashes, no doubt 'bout that but the rest is typical United fan's story :) When Real ruled the World, Manchester was nowhere... and many it's current fans didn't knew about it :)) But United has better results last 5 years and now Real is poor club, lol. C'mon dude :))
Yeah, Guti, Casillas, Raul are bought too :)
Few years ago Real Madrid was the strongest team on the world, Barca was losing 0:4 and 0:3 from Dynamo Kiev. Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal were nowhere to see in Europe before 1990's It's just cute to see people with such a short memory :).
Real would come back, don't worry, they already have bought few extraordinary players, 2-3 more and some time to fit them all and you'll eat your words :)
Avishek, what about Arsenal ? Real Madrid is paying huge money (not robbing) for other team stars but Wenger is buying talented kids from other teams paying peanuts for them, I would rather call that "robbing" :). Every big team is buying, actually, Real Madrid made more extraordinary players than any English team but you guys have fan blindness and don't see it :). Only problem with Real Madrid is that they're buying players to win presidental elections and don't include managers in those decisions.
