After what feels like decades of speculation from Sport and Mundo Deportivo concerning Mad Sammy Eto'o being replaced by Adebayor / Berbatov / Zlatan / Chipper from Operación Triunfo it seems that, like Fernando Gago taking a shot, both papers may have been some way off the mark. Barça are slowly starting to spin the line that they are chuffed to bits with the pre-season performances of the Cameroonian striker and his all round sprightly attitude - not that La Liga Loca thinks there was anything wrong with it in the first place, aside from Eto'o being a bit of a grumpy pants on the odd occasion.

What is it with Inter and central defenders? They can’t seem to keep them on the pitch. Last season, Walter Samuel snapped knee ligaments in the Milan derby in December and then Ivan Cordoba’s season was ended in similar fashion against Liverpool in the Champions League in February.Added to that, Nelson Rivas and Cristian Chivu were also sidelined at various stages in the campaign. The latest to fall to the curse at the back has been Marco Materazzi who lasted all of seven minutes of Tuesday’s TIM Trophy encounter with Juventus, before limping off with what seems to be a recurrence of his long-standing knee problem.
