Soldado & Balbao
I will let you on a little secret: Soldado played 11 games and scored 2 goals for Madrid in the 2005-06 season and Balboa played in 2 games! They were loaned out to Primera División teams, but they did not played for Real Madrid Castilla last term which is what you are implying when you added "promoted from the B team". Oh! Real Madrid Castilla is the B team so you do not have to say "promoted from B team"! Yes, but the shock will wear off soon! Raul17 06:09, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
RE: They have not got a 1st team squad number. In Spain, numbers from 1 to 25 are for the first team, 26 to whatever are for B team. They can play 1st team matches, but they are considered as a part of the B team. B team players have many restrictions, as they cannot play the last five games without having played a certain number of matches for the first team.
Real Madrid Castilla and Real Madrid B are the same. It changed its name when they promoted to 2nd Division. People here still refers to it as 'el B'. Other examples are Sevilla Atlético (= Sevilla B) or Valencia Mestalla (= Valencia B). Saying Castilla or B team means the same.

Real Madrid roster
Well, this excuse is too mean. You can say that Beckham's 23 is still available but the fact is - None of a player except the new players would confirm their number next season. On the safe side, I'd use the image one (which says no photo no talk in Hong Kong culture), which shows here. However, I cannot find any jersey available for Dudek, so still keeping 25 here.

Football records in Spain
Please help regarding this critical record article. One user userAdnan is putting frivolous records of barcelona like players from youth system scoring etc when no consensus was ever made to put the article and discussion is still going on talk page. Could you kindly please restore the article back and stop him from reverting again? I also suspect the user is a sockpuppet of someone.22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:09, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
In soccerway you can see these honours.http://int.soccerway.com/players/fernando-pacheco-flores/164039/.And if I consider he is not in Real Madrid then why Segunda Division B is not there when he won it with Castilla?And in soccerway profile if you click Domestic Cup then in under you will see there is 2010-11 as well.He was an unused substitute in a match against UD Levante.http://int.soccerway.com/matches/2011/01/06/spain/copa-del-rey/levante-union-deportiva/real-madrid-club-de-futbol/1050258/ Deb (talk) 03:33, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
