Antonio Cassano is known as a fantasista in Italian football parlance.The player whose skill and all round game are so valued that he is allowed to roam free wherever he feels.The term also means someone who embellishes his life with tall tales in order to make himself more interesting or exciting.Well, Cassano has certainly been on a few flights of fantasy in his autobiography entitled “Vi Dico Tutto” (I’ll Tell You Everything).“I’ve slept with between 600 and 700 women,” he boasts, although that's a pretty low figure going by the claims of most Italian males. “At least 20 of them have been involved in the world of show business.”

Tomás Roncero, Wednesday November 12.“Another glorious hat-trick from Raúl made it 300 goals in the pristine white shirt of Real Madrid for our Captain Courageous - the shirt that stands for peace and love, puppy dogs and kittens, ham and sangria! Three more goals that show that he is the King, the Don, the Master, the... (what? away goals? Are you fu....)."

The Sulky One, as he must be known as from now on, didn’t taken long to turn a country against him.Yes, surprise surprise, Jose Mourinho and Italy don’t mix.First, he made disparaging remarks about Claudio Ranieri, then he belittled an official from another club and has fallen out with just about every local commentator he has spoken to or at, depending where you stand.Not content with that, even Inter fans are growing tired of his macho stand-offs and seething from the touchline.The Nerazzurri fans are a surly bunch at the best of times and are known to boo and lambast their own players just because they can and it passes the time.You got the feeling that secretly they were disappointed when Julio Cruz popped up with that last-gasp winner last Sunday thus spoiling a perfectly good occasion to jeer the team off the pitch.

There is a chance, faithful reader, that some of you may not be around tomorrow to read another daily dose of lies, more lies and the odd statistic. Indeed, there’s a possibility that La Liga Loca won’t be here to write it. The great circle of life dictates that some of us will end the day - or even morning, if things go very badly - shuffling off this mortal coil, having been mushed, mashed, squashed, or watched Osasuna.

Good DayBarcelona, Real MadridYes, Barcelona continue with their Ming-the-Merciless style maulings of opponents. And yes, Real Madrid continue to be somewhat lucky in their ability to grind out results when playing poorly. But so what?As one pertinent poster pointed out over the weekend, none of these results matter a Maniche’s meal, thanks to the bungling of La Liga’s fixture-fixers. In the first quarter of the season, Madrid should have been punished by tougher teams than the Malaga’s of La Liga whilst Barcelona deserve to be further ahead of their rivals having been victorious over the likes of Villarreal.Instead, the two clubs have been fed cannon fodder to chump on and that will continue until round 13 when both will then face Sevilla, each other, Valencia and Villarreal in a rapid run, followed by another five months or so of fish-food. What happens if Barça break down, as Xavi fears? Or if Real Madrid suddenly rediscover their mojo? Would the first 12 rounds have been a big waste of time?
