Big weekend ahead and I have started as I mean to go on, by sending subscribers to the email service five selections for today. Hopefully, it will be possible for me to post a couple of these on the blog, so please check back.
We are in the middle of a recession, but no one has bothered to tell new Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who was previously in charge between 2000-2006. Despite his club being hundreds of millions in debt, he is building a new team of Los Galacticos and has apparently spent another £80m, signing Ronaldo to play alongside the now cheap looking, at a mere £56m, Kaka .
Of course, Real could do with a few defenders, but defensive players don't win votes and that is not the Real way, you can be sure that if there is more big money spent and it is likely, it will continue to be on attacking players. Little will change at the back next season I would guess, with Iker Casillas remaining not only the best, but one of the busiest goalkeepers in the World !
