it's not the same when translated to english. in spanish it rhymes

PharaohLeo

So, basically 'refs' is translated to "those with yellow card"? In that case, shouldn't it be "amarillos" plural?


bluescholar1

“Those in yellow” / “those wearing yellow”.


PharaohLeo

Ah, that explains it. Thank you.

capflow

They were already beaten before the game started. It's a league, not a knockout competition.


PhnomPenny

Against your city rivals? Weak.


capflow

Team came after 120 intense minutes against Man City and the league was already won, yet little willy here expects the players to die on the field for a meaningless game. What a bellend 😂


Practical_Success643

that and that also no one apart from Atlético gave a shit about the match, if the had lost I would be worried


NotShutdown

don't write this type of thing on r/soccer, they don't see it the same way r/realmadrid does

When it rhymes, it must be true all the times.

Haha, that's a very good and funny one, not gonna lie.


dakaiiser11

It’s just banter. Soccer doesn’t have to be all political threats and hate. Just take it in and laugh.


Sergiotor9

It's not banter though, Atlético fans are actually that bitter about Madrid winning.


FiFiniusBi

every football fan is bitter about his rival


mrgonzalez

Why stop there?


celzero

If you're a Madrid fan, savour it. If you're an Atletico fan, you're allowed to have a laugh. If you're a neutral, why get worked up about nothing?


3CreampiesA-Day

Most Atletico fans hate the fact Madrid won, but they also know Madrid deserved it.


dangerous_petaurus

Tbh these atletico "fans" are actually neonazi killers ( with two football related deaths behind them) and the single reason that banner is displayed at the front of their stadium is because their board is scared shitless of them. So it's kind of far from fun banter Frente atletico are a disgrace and atleti's board are a bunch of pathetic cowards


dangerous_petaurus

Are people actually downvoting me for calling out Frente Atletico? How disconected are you from whats actually going on? How hypocritical can this sub be? They are literal neonazis who put that banner there, you can see nazi symbols during the games at wanda in their stand and they have killed two people and the club still protects them to this day While madrid and barça kicked out their ultras atletico protect them and let them rule the club. People who downvoted me either have never set foot in madrid or are part of that group themselves, no other explanation


boarder415

I don’t think anyone is disagreeing about frente. The way you wrote your comment makes it sounds like you’re generalizing all Atleti fans to be apart of the frente group which definitely isn’t true


Feisty-Site-6261

Atletico fans under Simeone have always had this 'the refs are against us' mentality. Which is funny considering they're one of the the dirtiest teams I've seen and seem to get away with a lot of shit.


HawayTheMaj

The refs are against every team in every game ever in every league that plays.


appleman94

This but unironically


backtolurk

I know right? It's like they're trying to apply the fucking rules, and every team is annoyed by it, at some point!


mrgonzalez

The_baboons_ass

all the refs hate me


Kingslayer1526

This is so fucking true. I have been to about 50 subreddits of teams and good lord REFEREE THIS REFEREE THAT THE WORST REFEERING I'VE SEEN OUR RIVALS ALWAYS GET CORRECT DECISIONS. WHO TF IS ACTUALLY GETTING THE CORRECT DECISIONS THEN


Banged_by_bumrah

I have never seen City on a receiving end of a wrong decision in the PL though


Gnoetv

What are you on about lmao


mattysimp27

I have, so many times. You just don't watch enough of us. I'm sure some other City fan could go to the effort of linking some.


Comunicado_Oficial

So so many, more than you can believe


CRGiggsWood

The handball that mysteriously didn’t get called for Everton, then the FA made some kind of apology, right?


DogTheGayFish

How can one be so ducking correct and based


LeStiqsue

I don't think the all the referees in England are against Liverpool, I think only Paul Tierney is. The rest of them are just terrible at their jobs. It's not malice, it's incompetence. Sometimes we benefit from that, sometimes we get fucked, same as everyone else. It's why you can choke-slam Salah in the box whenever you want and not give up a pen. It's not that the referees are trying to influence the game, it's that they don't know the fucking rules.


Rafaeliki

Barcelona and Madrid have seen their fair share of favorable treatment from the refs. As far as the pasillo, Madrid were the first to not give one for La Liga. EDIT: Every league sees their top clubs get favorable treatment from the refs and this shouldn't really even be controversial.


dohhhnut

Yup, I remember in the game against United that knocked them out, the ref literally did everything for them. He stopped play for a knee injury lmao


melorio

In that one united just keep looking for excuses.


dohhhnut

What?


melorio

United fans keep blaming referees for losing to atleti when it’s obvious to anyone that watched that game and is not biased that they lost fair.


dohhhnut

Oh not denying that united were absolute shit, I'm just saying that the ref helped Atleti a lot


Niarra__

Spanish burnley. Fuck them. Hala Madrid.


DustoXx

Lmao ironic cuz they be getting 7+ mins injury time


Comunicado_Oficial

And that their last two league titles being decided by ref mistakes in their favor, but it doesn't matter because there are 38 games or whatever some fans will have you believe


melorio

I mean there are 38 games in a league. A single referee mistake can be crucial in a cup or knockout tournament, but over a league it should not matter that much.


Comunicado_Oficial

And when it happens in the last game against #2 who was tied with you on points?


melorio

Im not an atleti fan. And that does not matter. A mistake on the 37th matchday is worth as much as a mistake on the 2nd matchday. It’s just one has a lot more attention.


Competitive-Ad2006

Like Madrid under Mou?


OlSmokeyZap

Yeah. Not the gotcha you thought it was. Mou’s Madrid is pushing a decade now anyway.


Albodanny

Like Roma Forns Barca????


OlSmokeyZap

What does Forns mean?


Albodanny

Roma Forns was one of the first Barca managers ever lol I was mocking the other kid for bringing up something from ages ago


OlSmokeyZap

Oh I got it. Considering it was 1920s football I bet they were a pretty dirty team.


jack64467

the refs aren't against atleti, but they normally do favor real


Tilman_Feraltitty

Bro, you have a Barca flair :D


gordonpown

I swear it's impossible to say anything against anyone with a Barca flair in this sub without 40 downvotes Ayyyyyy here we go

Ventorro

Latter would be a bit rich from Madrid fan


MaTrIx4057

childish take


SantaIsRealEh

The lack of self awareness on this one lmao


Ablj

I just have to say isn’t it strange how Madrid gets all 3 KO UCL games at home for second leg meaning when it does go to extra time they are playing at home.


er_primo_der_rafa

I just have to say isn't it strange how Madrid gets PSG, Chelsea and City meaning they have the most difficult route to the final.


DeexNuttz

Maybe they’ve become what they are now because the refs have been against them for 120years? I would turn to the dark arts to balance the powers of the corrupt if I had to as well🤷🏻‍♂️


Bedumtss

Can someone ELI5 pls


KingNaz92

RM have won the current season la liga title. It is customary that teams give the champions a guard of honor in the remaining games of the season. Atletico are taking a jab at Madrid that by highlighting the favoritism in the press and refereeing towards RM.


Bedumtss

Ahh I see, thank you for the explanation

Let the salt flow.


EggplantBusiness

If we didn't have more urging issue I would be almost pissed we don't go all out and send them to Europa. Either way fair enough that a rivalry for a reason and it rhymes


ayotui

If we hadn't played 120 minutes against City i would have loved for us to throw out our best 11 to crush them today and then lie down completely against Betis to send Atleti to Europa.


justalilchili

I was really hoping Betis could pull through for the top four, but between yesterday and todays matches it’s just not in the cards.


Gobshiight

That's brilliant


PMmeYOURBOOBSandASS

GoldeneyeEU

After this match, the sign is kinda ironic..


meetrainc

Imagine being founded by Franco's Airforce officers and receiving indirect state patronage to come up with this cringe. I don't mind Atleti not giving the pasillo- to each their own but lmao this. Ultimate victimhood.


Hazen-Williams

We got so much state patronage under Franco that they the regime put in jail our manager, Ricardo Zamora, for political reasons when we were fighting for the league.


Comunicado_Oficial

Just jail, no execution? Mehhh weaksauce


rcgarcia

you were even named Atlético Aviación, come on ("aviación" means "air force" for those oblivious)


Hazen-Williams

Yeah, no shit? Im from Spain so I know what aviación means. After the war Nacional de Aviación almost merged with Real Madrid but a disagreement about the number of members in the board collapsed the deal. After that Aviación started talking with Atlético Madrid and Nacional de Madrid. We were sooo "the regime" club that after the civil war, when the league restarted, Oviedo couldn't compete in the first division so instead of giving the spot to us (we ended second to last before the war) they decided for us to play a play off against Osasuna who were last place before the war. Not only that, but in the 1941 campaign when we were fighting for the league the regime put in jail Ricardo Zamora, our manager. We were soooo the "regime club" that we were not the most successful club during the dictatorship, those were Real Madrid followed by Barcelona.


RoadsterIsHere

The club existed before the short-term air force merger. It wasn't founded by the airforce. I'm not exactly sure why people parrot that or why it gets so many upvotes, other than the fact that Madrid fans outnumber Atleti fans like 4:1 on this site.


robinho988

Its okay, someone told the internet Franco was Real's fan so you making sense isnt valid


sublime_touch

But he was, no amount of revisionist history will change that.


frenin

Except he wasn't lol. That's what you'd know if you actually know history and not just memes.

They should just have flo have his buddies in the government gift them land that they can then sell for profit...

Youre kidding right....


_TickleMyElmo_

Always wondered why there was a plane at the back of the stadium. That explains it


Undesirable_11

Let us not forget that Atletico is the only team that's lost two CL finals against their biggest rival


Practical_Success643

yeah, and it´ s kind of sad that we are their biggest rival and they aren´ t our biggest rival


ferkk

They will always have a loser mentality. El pupas.


LampseederBroDude51

Remember the days of Patético Madrid?


EnchiladaInvestor

We call our atléticos patéticos in Brazil too. Nice to see some things are universal 🥹


ioannsukhariev

it's always the days of pateti.


TeflonTony2013

Pathetico


Helpfulbuns

What does pupas mean? Why the downvote? I was genuinely curious you clown


Harkoncito

In Spain, it refers to someone whose whole personality revolves about how unlucky/unfortunate/unfair their life (allegedly) is. The first person to call Atletico "El Pupas"?? Their own president, Vicente Calderon, after losing the '74 European Cup.


Helpfulbuns

Thank you!


ferkk

I didn't downvote you, I don't know what you're talking about.


Helpfulbuns

Not you bro


robinho988

You literally got gifted a title last year after that blatant robbery against Real. I guess being in their shadow all history hurts


ChicoZombye

This is hard to understand outside of the country but every major media outlet in Spain is openly RM-sided which makes other teams feel attacked and neglected all the time (because if there's any kind of argument and they are involved, the media is not going to side with the other team), not just ATM. Not saying RM orders it but media for sure likes to lick their balls hard. Search for "X star of Atlético de Madrid doesn't want to be there and it's going to leave", watch the date and search when the derby was played, it's iiiiinsane. They also do this with Barcelona specially. Before any Clasico, there's always a bunch of those. I for one don't like this kind of things and I think we should have done the corridor but I'm just explaining what happens in Spain with the media as a foundation to what happens there. As of the referees. RM for years sustained that the refs were corrupts and specifically against them (they called it "Villarato" because of Ángel María Villar, the previous president of the RFEF). If we talk about being pety, let's just remember what happens in Spain when they are not happy withe the ref: [http://2.bp.blogspot.com/\_t9bY2Hs5DL4/S56iXz3yLNI/AAAAAAAAA9k/rmGZMtHDSAY/s400/villarato.jpg](http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_t9bY2Hs5DL4/S56iXz3yLNI/AAAAAAAAA9k/rmGZMtHDSAY/s400/villarato.jpg) [https://as.com/diarioas/imagenes/2011/05/05/blogs/1304629460\_1170211\_4\_sumario\_grande.jpg](https://as.com/diarioas/imagenes/2011/05/05/blogs/1304629460_1170211_4_sumario_grande.jpg) [http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vsNNRjG0z\_A/TcO9smpPZAI/AAAAAAAAEwk/hq9y9Q6CfV8/s320/VILLARATO2.jpg](http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-vsNNRjG0z_A/TcO9smpPZAI/AAAAAAAAEwk/hq9y9Q6CfV8/s320/VILLARATO2.jpg) Just a couple of examples are enought to ilustrate what the other teams see all the time.


1ngK

AHAHHAHAHA We won games deservedly and suddenly we are gifted a title. Dude there are tons of ref decisions against us to stop us, if you knew even just a bit of that Pique incident you will know refs have a priority to make Barca or Real win the league. Search that thing if you don't know. Robbery my ass. Which part of our last season was more of a robbery than Real who won 19/20 with like half of the match winners were penalties?


Helpfulbuns

What robbery? Genuinely curious

To be fair, when you compare any club in the world they come up inferior to Madrid in terms of success and popularity


RG_Oriax

Absolute clowns.

When you are not busy celebrating titles you have enough time to come up with this, I guess.

Don't watch la Liga, eh?


Jee-NX

“El Pupas” moaning and complaining and whining as usual. The club that plays the dirtiest football in Europe crying about referees being againstthem ! What a joke.


lffg18

If it wasn’t for me being a native Spanish speaker and understanding the nice rhyme and shit I would say this is an incredible example of inferiority complex. But gotta say gg, very funny tbh.


KHVeeavrr

What being second best does to a mf


RG_Oriax

Being in fourth against this Barca first half of the season, must be pretty embarassing.

I'm curious, we have stats for how many times a player scored a goal after scratching their left leg, how come we don't get stats on ref mistakes and which teams they favor? It could put all these arguments to rest.

Kind_Mulberry_3512

This is amazing, and true, Marca is just real Madrid propaganda (esp the newspapers) and the refs have been on their side for ages.


PirateKingRamos

lmfao most knowledgeable bayern fan


DyrusforPresident

You would think if the refs have been on our side for ages we would have won more league titles than we did


PirateKingRamos

They helped us so much when we didn't get a penalty against Atleti last season or when we scored against Sevilla in extra time and they overruled it for a bullshit pen to give Sevilla the win instead. That helped us tremendously


EggplantBusiness

You would think that Sevilla wouldn't have got a penalty last season too if refs were with us.


showmewhatyougot37

"the refs are so for us that we have specific examples of getting burned but not any from this year"


EggplantBusiness

I mean even just recently we have Sevilla (again) where we have a missed pen for Madrid, a missed second for Camavinga which he would have deserved and an incorrectly disallowed goal for Vinicius. Liga refs are not biased just trash


[deleted]

Bayern fans should know best Only reason Real beat Bayern in the CL 4 years ago. Pure robbery


Kind_Mulberry_3512

Yeah how on earth do this club get so much luck, and wish as much as you want, it's never you, and it's never us. Always those in white


Santa_Klaus_101

Not like the decisions that went your way that game were any better. So many shocking mistakes for both sides. We dominated the game anyways.


WoW_Christopher

Pretty pathetic tbh. Just accept they have been better and stop embarassing yourselves


VDV23

Nah, not really. I wouldn't expect (nor want) our rivals' fans to just clap for us and say how great we are. It's part of football and it should stay that way. And it's a catchy phrase that rhymes so nothing wrong with that.


drbond2021

My favorite CL final to rewatch is the 2017 one against Atletico just for the tears


TheBloodMakesUsHuman

Atletico finals were 2014 and 2016 though, 2017 was Real vs Atleti semis.


los_blanco_14

Atletivo werent even in the 2017 final


Alvaro_Rey_MN

2017 was against Juventus


GJXN1990

Having played the Madrid sides back to back, the only difference (in Spain) was that one of them had the ref in their pocket and the other didn't.


DatOgreSpammer

Wait which team are you talking about every City fan said we had the refs on our side


los_blanco_14

Cope harder mfer.


curtastrophe666
