Currently the worst defense in La Liga, how often does one hear that?

Fact is Alonso and Di Maria were extremely critical to Madrid's success last season.

But no, the board ripped out the heart of the midfield, and dropped in Rodriguez and Kroos as if they will instantly click and replace them.

While both quality replacements, it's just not always that easy to get the same chemistry quickly. Eventually maybe, but by then, it could be too late for this season.
