    Eddie, imagine you are at a party and you spot someone you know, but who you think is boring. You start making your way over to the open bar, but he spots you, cuts you off and proceeds to rail on Donald Trump. You can practically smell the 18 year old Macallen being poured by the barstaff, but this guy wont shut up. You then say to the guy, "look, I'm not at this party to discuss politics" and you walk to the bar. Now, would that mean that you dont want to discuss politics, or that you are not at the party?

    Real Madrid's statement defending the angelic Sergio Ramos after a bit of handbags at Sevilla has got to be repeated here just for its comedy value. Its opening paragraph reads, 'Real Madrid wants to express their full and absolute support for our captain and the Spanish team captain, Sergio Ramos, whose behaviour is and has been exemplary throughout his career, which has led him to be a benchmark of values for all fans of football and sport in general.'

    This must not be the Sergio Ramos who has received 21 red cards during his time with them then. It must have been someone else with the same name who has been sent off for elbowing (on several occasions), stamping on the chest of a prone opponent, kicking out and also forearm smashing someone. Definitely not him m'lud. Not the exemplary Santo Sergio.

    That load of arse gravy was probably culled from the same book of blatant bullshit statements which sexist baboon Richard Keys must have read before tweeting regarding the working conditions in Qatar, “I know you like accuracy Colin Murray. Been doing some checking. 3500 workers on 5 stadia sites 6 million hrs worked - no fatalities.”
    It must also be the same popular tome which Alexei Smertin read before coming out with the absolute whopper, "There's no racism in Russia, because it does not exist." Throwing bananas and making monkey noises at black players must be just banter than eh Alexei?

    It's amazing what shit people are prepared spout when there's enough money in the way. Some others of course are happy to spout off any old nonsense for free.

    Wow, it was fun while it last. 2 late goals with the winner at last minute too.

    Sevilla will go 2nd if they win their remaining game

    Good to see Sevilla win this, just what La Liga needs.

    Liverpool, Sevilla, Napoli... good attacking football, but maybe a bit too wild for something serious this season!

    It's odd because Sevilla were slightly the opposite under their previous manager.

    Personally would love to see both Napoli and Sevilla take it, football kind of needs it at the moment.*

    *Love to see us do it also but it's sadly now very unlikely.

    Witnessed a 2 broken leg challenges last night, one was an Osassuna defender and the other was Barcelona's right back. Osassuna's broke his shin bone, much like the one suffered by Cisse while the Barcelona's right back foot seemed detached from his ankle. Spain might need to step up on their officials keeping an eye on challenges, especially the one where the Alaves winger slide in on the Barca's right back. Fucked up....

    Could RM be on the back of 2 away defeats.

    Bale just pulled 1 back. 2-1 25 mins for Villarreal to hold out.

    The race is very much back on.

    That was hard to watch. Absolutely awful decision on the handball, but as soon as the ref gave it you knew the result was going to end up like this.

    As much as i like to see RM lose, after last year's EL tie against Villarreal and seeing their annoying formation and clown manager running like a headless chicken after they won the first game only to then criticize Klopp after the game at Anfield for celebrating it makes me hate them even more. Go F yourself Villarreal, though they changed managers recently i still hold the hatred inside of me :-)

    Luis Enrique, manager of Barcelona has announced he is leaving Barcelona FC in May 2017. Barcelona won 6-1 against Sporting Gijon.

    Real Madrid are losing 3-1 to Las Palmas and Gareth Bale has been sent off !

    Terrible mistakes from Bale and Ramos.

    But love Las Palmas. I'd go there and play a season for free! F*ck, I'd stay there for the rest of my career and become a legend. Great weather, good football, what else do you need. No surprise more players with talent (but are maybe lazy) are heading there to resurect their careers.

    Can't believe it's March and I still don't have a top team in Europe that impressed me so far this season. It's a season of a lot of teams at a very good level, but no major stand out.

    On Barca, Balague says the options are Valverde, Blanc and Pochettino. Sampaoli still one, but apparently he's been pushing himself more than that Barca want him.

    League wide open now. Who knows, maybe Messi can do it alone.

    Omg! Full- time Real Madrid- Las Palmas 3-3. Ronaldo saves the day! What a crazy night in La Liga.

    We need a Ronaldo in our team.

    They dont really have anyone left at the club who they could reasonably appoint. The B team guy is a relatively new hire early in his career who stepped in when they went down to the third tier 2 seasons ago. Their academy director has been around the club for a while and was on both Pep's and Tito's staff, and stepped in as caretaker when Tito took ill, but if they were going to give him the job they would have given him the job then rather than going outside to Martino

    Sounds like what they need is a guy who has a grounding in their style of play, has experience of managing a big club, has already worked with one of their top players and has experience walking the league in a two-team division.

    Well, what worked for Neuchatel Xamax would surely translate to Spain.
