Zinedine Zidane on Real Madrid's Jaurary transfer business

While Real Madrid are now floundering 16 points off the pace in La Liga, Zidane's side are cruising along in the Copa del Rey.

Real's most obvious issue this season has been the lack of a consistent goal threat.

Real Madrid play host to Numancia in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, when they'll look to build on the 3-0 lead they hold coming into the second leg of their round-of-16 encounter.

'Where's my Bill Cosby pill?'
Cosby has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, including some who say the comedian drugged and raped them. He has a long history of making disparaging comments about Clinton. "My God is that good".

"We are all in this together". The day of the Celta game, I focused on the good things. Regular starters Casemiro and Isco entered the match in the second half.

"Some people may think that everything is always easy for me, that I do everything from instinct, but that's not true!"

Madrid, playing with a second-string lineup, advanced 5-2 on aggregate thanks to its 3-0 win in the first leg last week, which marked the team's only win in its last four games. "I'm not protected by what I've done as a player at this club", he added.

Real coach Zidane usually leaps to the defence of his players after negative results but he was not in a forgiving mood on Sunday. His insistence that the only thing needed is "more hard work" frustrates those who wonder whether he can see his team's clear tactical issues.

However, Zidane - who has said he is "not afraid" of the current challenges - rejected the idea he should drop long-time regulars including Toni Kroos, Marcelo and even the club's record goal scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo. "Why would I change my opinion in two or three months?" "I know I won't stay [in the job] for 10 years", Zidane reckoned.

"Today, yes, the danger is there, but I'm not going to change". But those same Real Madrid players will be fighting tooth and nail to prove that they can be a bigger part of the squad, so they're going to give no quarter to their second-division foes. I'm more interested in unity. They need to start putting together consistent performances and start rolling again - especially ahead of next month's Champions League round of 16 tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

And it's not necessarily that Atlanta blew the Rams out of the water, but they did dominate them in all three phases of the game. Let's not count out the Pittsburgh defense, however, as it has surrendered just 312 yards per game in Heinz Field this season .
