Barça 5 - 0 Madrid (I'm still adding stuff keep checking)

I know most of you are asleep / wasted / getting laid but I'm going to post this anyways.
Feel free to add any gifs, macros, and images from last night (this morning) El Clasico.
I'd love to have a great collection of them and save it in my ~memory.
I'm sure there are loads of them :)

First post here, so plz be gentle ^_^  I love this community, and you guys in general xD

Q: Which player of the opposing team would you sign (on your team)?
Íker: (shrugs) Well, Xavi! obviously, what a stupid question.
Xavi: (laughs) Well, I’ve always said that if I could, I’d sign Casillas.

I know, old stuff… BUT OH MY GOD WHAT IS BREATHING. ♥♥♥♥♥

El Clasico: coming right up!

Quote of the day:

"We will not beat Madrid 6-0, or 5-0, I can assure you of that. We've already won the media game 6-0. Brilliant. But the real game starts on Saturday at 10." - Pep Guardiola

Video of the day:

Barcelona's last win at Camp Nou in 2004, the game which many saw as a turning point for both Barca and Real - Barca on their way to dominance and Real, to decline. So it proved.

+ Surprise! Andres Iniesta is back in full training and may even be fit enough to be on the bench. It's a very slim chance, but I wouldn't rule it out completely.

On Real's side, Sneijder has been included in their squad, but may not be fit enough to feature. So the final list of probably absences for Real looks like this:

Injured: Van Nistelrooy, Diarra, De la Red, Heinze, Sneijder, Miguel Torres, Pepe
Suspended: Robben, Marcelo

+ There are outlandish rumours that Juande Ramos will play 5 defenders. Which isn't a very Real Madrid thing to do, is it?

+ Marca appears to suggest that Sergio Ramos will be the one with the fun, fun task of marking Leo Messi. (You'll notice that they're assuming that Messi will play on the right, which with Pep isn't exactly a certainty.)

+ Former players Mark van Bommel, Juliano Belletti, and Gio van Bronckhorst on El Clasico.

Soapbox time: form means nothing in this game. It's not going to be easy, no matter what it seems like. Personally, I agree with Xavi and co.: getting the 3 points is the most importance consideration here.

Please join us here for the live freak-out reaction post, Saturday 10PM local time. I'll be freaking out at work by myself, desperate to know the result. Pity me. *g*

Visca el Barca!
