At.Madrid insist Falcao will stay rest of season,but 60m sale would sort their debts. Decision not totally in their hands @revistadelaliga
Surely having him until the summer and then cashing in would make more sense? That way when they get to the CL they get the extra revenue from being in that competition as well as the lump sum from selling him.
Balague's talking *******s. 60m wouldn't come close to covering Atléti's debts.
Anyone think that valencia are down and out for making top 4 this season?
Should never have hired a total rookie manager.
But, i believe they will improve.
I think it will be between them and Malaga for 4th.
Actually thats a good point by the people at Revista, what happens if Catalonia got independence from Spain? What would happen to Barcelona in the league.
Independence will be a long process, they've been fighting for years so it is going to take time. But could have dramatic consequences for the league and internationally aswell. I've always believed that Barcelona's Catalan players, who espouse a diplomatic stance when it comes to talking "passionately" about playing for Spain, might feel a tad more happier playing for Catalunya. But I'm sure they play for a Catalunya side in pre-season don't they, sure they had a few friendlies.
But catching Revista, discussed the Mourinho/Casillas/Ramos beef. Saying the Ramos one was somewhat resolved but the Casillas one is down to possibly him being the whistleblower on stories inside camps. If you look at Mourinho at Chelsea for example, you'd never imagine he'd challenge the authority in Terry/Cech but I wonder what his motivation is. Whether to stir them in action like Graham Hunter suggested or if it's the beginning of the end of his time in Madrid.
I think even if Catalonia got independence, then all teams from that region would still play in Liga. If they didn't then the Catalan league would be made up of about 5 pro teams and a bunch of amateur teams. It would be like Welsh teams playing in the PL.
Abidal is back in training and supposedly comes back at the end of October or November. If it happens its absolutely wonderful news! was one of our most consistent performers and best defenders last season in a pretty poor defense the only one who kept playing well.
