Antoine Jizzman. Times his ejaculations perfectly to his wife's menstrual cycle so all his kids are born on the same day.

If Zidane were our coach, we'd probably be calling for his head too :lol:

What a race for the La Liga this season. Obviously I have a soft spot for our ex-player, Simeone, but as long as it's entertaining like this, I'm happy too.

I am watching Betis-Atletico only for Mandi. You can't really judge a player based on one match but i don't think Mandi is good enough to play for Inter. He was caught asleep in Atletico's goal.

The last time title fight was so close was the season Cholo and Atletico won it in the last match of the season against Barcelona at Camp Nou.

Yeah, RM lost the title race 2 or 3 rounds before the end, in the last game Barca needed a win, and Atletico needed a draw to win the title. That was some intense shit, i remember watching Barca Atletico in the last round, Atletico had the defensive display of their lives. When Godin equalized, i was almost certain they would hold, similar to what Inter did to Barca in 2010.

Its shame that Atletico lost all that advantage, but if they pull it up in the last round or two, i wouldnt mind at all :D

Unless their urgency doesn't go up 5 times more from next game on, Atletico won't even contend for the title in the last 2-3 rounds.

Btw the El Classico was really decent. Some good football even though was played during extremely shit weather for the most part.

I believe Real Madrid will win it. But if some results go their way, Sevilla have an outside chance as well. Would be amazing for Papu.

Yesterday wasn't the problem, but the past 3 months or so. There were games where Atletico were clueless, couldnt move the ball, couldnt pass, couldnt do shit. Yesterdays game they were good enough to win imo, but shit happens.

Barca has a game in hand, and also there is Barca - Atletico game coming soon. That would be crucial, but knowing Atletico, im sure they will bottle it.

Yea that game could be the decider.

Atletico win (5%) - Atletico favourites for the title
Barca win (75%) - Barca favourites for the title
Draw (20%) - Real favourites for the title

- - - Updated - - -

Of course, going by how things are, Atletico would be out of the title race by the time we get to that match.

At this rate Sevilla has a higher chance to win than Atletico. Barcelona goes top if they win their game in hand.

As twisted as it is, I'm not really sure a draw is in Real's best interests.

I'm writing this as Barcelona leads 1-0 at the half vs. Granada - if I'd seen it and written it previously, it still would've been in the assumption Barça wins that game - but that puts the table at FCB 74/ATM 73/RM 71. Brushing aside this weekend for just one minute, if that game next weekend ends in a draw and Real wins their game (against Sevilla, as it turns out, so also a very difficult game), that leaves Barcelona at 75 points, and Real at 74. Barcelona's other remaining games?

@ Valencia (14th)
@ Levante (12th)
Celta Vigo (10th)
@ Eibar (20th)

Now, away to Valencia has generally been a tricky game for them over the years, but this would be an empty Mestalla and the worst Valencia team in years (which itself is saying something). Maybe you could talk yourself into Levante? But we're also talking about Barcelona with no Champions League distractions, so this is their best XI each week with proper rest, and is 16-1-1 in their last 18 league games going into their next game after today. Obviously anything can happen, but I'm not seeing dropped points from those games. They don't have the tiebreaker over Real Madrid, but obviously that doesn't matter if they have one more point.

In addition to winning their games, which is no given based on their injury woes and fixture congestion (that team is absolutely exhausted), Real has no realistic chance unless Barcelona actually loses that game. I realize that means Real still trails Atleti by two points in the table, but given Atleti's spottier form, I would still say maybe there's more of a chance they drop points when they play Sociedad or maybe even Osasuna. But if Barcelona is in 1st place after they finish the Atleti game, I don't see any way, for either of the Madrid clubs, that they'll have the opportunity to overtake them again. That schedule is just way too manageable. You basically need a miracle.
