Neptuno smiles again

Neptuno square, where Atletico de Madrid fans celebrate all their titles, has been visited again, after eleven years living alone. Winning 1 – 0 there are again playing Champions League. In Spain this is real news because, as you know, Atletico is Spain third team after Real Madrid and Barcelona (in number of supporters). Now their problem is Aguirre, the Manager. He has reached Champions with a not really good football (Aguero and Forlan have done almost all the job), and many colchoneros think he is not the suitable person to drive Atletico over this new adventure.

One day we will dedicate one post just to analyze Atletico´s situation. El pupas (the surname used to describe this team, that literally means “the wounds”) is never happy at all. Even now, when the objective has been reached a lot of Atleticos are against Cerezo, chairman, and Aguirre. Apart from that, they are considering the option of selling Vicente Calderon, changing it for La Peineta (Olympic Game Stadium prepared for Madrid 2016), something that increase the Atleticos edginess. Anyhow, Sunday was a celebration day…

The second important theme this week is Zaragoza and, in general, the four teams that can be relegated on Saturday. Real Madrid, with the title already in their hands, drew against them in La Romareda. Zaragoza, Osasuna, Recreativo and Valladolid are living a nightmare that can finish if they win their matches. It is so curious, but all these teams depend on themselves to stay in Primera Division. That´s because Recre plays against Valladolid, so all of them can avoid relegation winning their matches. Nevertheless, Zaragoza´s situation is incredible if we look the quality of some of their players: Diego Milito, Sergio García, Aimar, Ayala, Zapater…

Finally there is another name used in every newspaper, radio gathering or TV program: Raul. In this moment Spain is divided in two sides. One of them wants Raul in Austria and Switzerland playing with la selección. The other one prefers anyone but him. First side seems to be bigger, but Aragones doesn’t like Raul (after some problems they had in the last World Cup) and after Torres, Villa and Guiza, that will be for sure in his list, he will probably call Bojan as fourth striker. Other options are Sergio García or Tamudo, but if you have to bet, choose Bojan.
