Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid, February 10th


Must stay at least 100 yards away from

Simply magnificent goal by Real Madrid. This goes way deep. Don't look at the end or the finish. Look at it deeper, deeper. A beautiful lead-ball over the top. Beautiful feed by Guti. [They're in long ?]. Beautiful pass here. He drags it into the box, and he dispatches brilliantly. Robben it is that finds him, he's onside, he rattles the back of the net. Beautiful providing. You can watch this one all day if you're a Real Madrid fan. He looked like Sophia Loren walking up a flight of stairs - absolutely beautiful.
Ray Hudson, 8:16 1st








This is what Bernd Schuster wants. This is what the Madridistas want. Not just ruthless, this is sadistic...
Ray Hudson, 33:01 1st

He's got to adjust that back line and drop them deeper because they've just cut their own throats today and Real Madrid are just playing in their blood.
Ray Hudson, 39:10 1st

The rhythm is there, here today, man. More rhythm in these white shirts now than a half a dozen Jamaican kettle-drums.
Ray Hudson, 43:15 1st

Brilliant run. Timing to perfection. Swivels his hips like Marilyn Monroe as he puts it in...
Ray Hudson, 44:11 1st

You can hear a drop of salsa hitting a chimichanga in that Valladolid locker-room.
Ray Hudson, 44:54 1st

In the first quote, I believe the quote was "They're in [the] long grass". (ie - predators hiding in the long grass on the savannah, which emphasizes his point about focusing on the "how" over the result...)

Can we get audio of the salsa/chimichanga quote?

Tim - will that do for you?

Awesome! Thanks again!

jjf3 - I've been over it a hundred times and I just don't hear 'grass'. I thought it was 'They rain/reign long' the first time I heard it. If any readers work for the CIA and have access to advanced voice recognition software, please drop me a line.

THE Greatest!!!!
Ray has used "waiting in the long grass" on a few occasions to wonderful effect but not here. He says "The`re in long.." meaning the attack is launced from very deep and he states that.Actually,Hudson recognises the Real Madrid danger as soon as they get possesion,in their own penalty box! Pity the "live" clip cant be included here because it shows the guy at his perceptive best!Bloody marvellous!

No problem. That's what I believed I heard watching it, but with Ray, who TF knows? And it was why I felt weird about "hearing" the "the" I implied in my post...I think that might have been where his mind was going, but I have no problem with yesterday's "anonymous" post either, as that sounds more than reasonable - you could see it develop that way...

It's so great when they let Ray do the Barca game and the Real Madrid game in the same weekend. I'd love to hear some audio of Ray drooling over IKER one of these games. It's funny to hear Phil try to bait him with some Valdes shutout stat. Then there's just silence. Or Phil will start the "who's the most valuable player on los blancos?" conversation. Cannavaro? Robinho? just to get Ray going off on his beloved Iker.
