Panic in Madrid!

After today’s embarrassing 3-1 loss at the hands of Getafe, Real Madrid is scrambling for answers.  All supporters can ask now is why?

Why is a club with so much defensive talent leaking goals?

Madrid has conceded twice as many goals as Spanish rival Barcelona.  Yikes!  There has been a great deal of talk about the attacking options ready to arrive this January, but Real Madrid might want to look at bolstering the defense.  In the match, Real ended with 18 shots, 6 of which were on goal.

Why is Bernd Schuster still in charge at the Santiago Bernabéu? 

After the loss he stated to the media, “Getafe were much better. They played a spectacular game and the scoreline flatters us,” He added. “We have a lot of players injured but we could do nothing. From the first moment I saw it would be difficult for us…and I never had the sensation we would win.”  Whoah!  Really?  At no moment in the match did you think that you could win?  It might be time to dust off the ol’ resume, Bernd.

Why has Real Madrid only taken 4 points from its last five trips to the 10,000-seat Coliseum Alfonso Perez? 

Getafe’s fortress is too much for Real Madrid.  Really?
