Just watching another Clasico tonight maybe realised how pathetic these two teams are when they square up against each other on the pitch. What should be a showcase of arguably the two best teams on the planet is consistently proving to be a pretentious battle of inflated ego's and constant tear shedding. Seeing incidents tonight such as constant gamesmanship, simulation and foul play makes me wonder why no action is being taken after the game is finished. Obvious simulation should be a bookable offense, whether a foul or not, and actions such as the blatant stamping on Messi's hand by Pepe is both shameful and cowardly. Every Clasico of the last couple of years has followed such a pattern and always leaves me with my head in my hands thinking; what has happened to the 'beautiful game' I grew up with. It just leaves me absolutely clueless at what should be one of football's greatest spectacles. If you want to see what is fundamentally wrong with todays game watch a Clasico. Thankfully being able to rely on moments of Messi's magic keeps me watching regardless.
