All Things Spanish - Urgh!

Spain is looking to be off the menu when it comes to my summer holiday this year.

In fact, I`m starting to develop an aversion to all things Spanish.

If being beaten by Barcelona wasn`t bad enough, we now find that the Real Madrid keeper, Iker Casillas, has uttered some words of, what he believes to be wisdom, on how his team would have fared if they`d have met us at Wembley.

Here`s what he had to say,

"I believe 100 per cent that if Madrid had been in that final, we would have also overrun Manchester United. I think in the semi-final between Madrid and Barcelona, that was the champions of Europe."

"The two best teams in Europe faced each other at that time. The two best teams are from Spain, a very positive thing for all Spanish football."


Now we may have been soundly beaten but does he really believe the dross Madrid and Barcelona served up in that semi-final first leg was befitting of a final?

Like I said, Spain is off the holiday menu this summer, how`s France these days?

Two of the best teams in Europe? Casillas, whats Real Madrids record in Europe been like in recent years? Actually, whats Real Madrids record in general been like in recent years? Too many are too blinkered to see beyond the commercialism and recognise Real Madrid in recent years, for all the money they spend and the quality they have, are some of the biggest flops in football, in the history of football.
