There’s just no pleasing some people sometimes... and that includes La Liga Loca.  Ramón Calderón has done the sensible thing and sacked freak-show Bernabéu PA announcer Arturo Sisó, the man that La Liga Loca really, really hates; the man La Liga Loca hammered right here not so long ago.  But is La Liga Loca happy? Well, no, not exactly. Because, in fact, La Liga Loca is feeling a weensy bit sorry for Sisó and his simpleton’s grin this morning.  He’s still an irritating tit who was massively overpaid for being an irritating tit, who should be flogged naked through the streets and have his voice box removed with a rusty knife.

Another game, another win for the Argentine Olympic squad and with it qualification to the next round.

Twelve fun-filled months in the life of Atlético Madrid manager Javier Aguirre are about to be stomped on and squashed into 180 minutes of frenetic football. On Wednesday night, the rojiblancos kick off part one of their terrifying tussle against Schalke in the Champions league qualifying round. For Aguirre, it's been an unforgettable year of dodging the sack, being booed, receiving insults from his players and needlessly gobbing off at Villarreal's club doctor, thinking he was a lowly kitman.  After dragging themselves into fourth last season, wheezing and panting like an Olympic marathon runner, Atlético now need to barge their way past their battling Bundesliga opponents in order to return to the glories of the Champions League after a 4165 day absence.

Where better to begin a renaissance than Florence and where better to cock a snoop at your old employers than scoring in the Champions League.Welcome back Alberto Gilardino, previously second fiddle at AC Milan but now set to hit the high notes at Fiorentina.OK, he only scored against a pretty ordinary and dull Slavia Prague side but what the heck, it’s been an age since we have witnessed those trademark violin-mining playing celebrations.

So glamorous is my job that I had to work 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday, a situation which improved markedly on Monday as Paul Parker (ex-Manchester United and England full-back) came to Barcelona and I met him for something to eat.

Once upon a time, La Liga Loca came across a poor desperate soul who used to work for Marca. And very ashamed he was about it, too. This now ex-Madrid propaganda spouting minion revealed what most people have suspected all along - that the paper just makes stuff up.

With three, long, painful weeks to go to the start of the footie season, the Spanish sporty press have gone Olympic Games crazy. And frankly Mr Shankly, who can blame them? Instead of filling their front covers with the wholly tedious and mercifully short-lived Robinho-to-Chelsea story on Monday, it's a fencer biting into a bronze medal - an odd trophy-eating craze that Rafa Nadal appears to have started.How much coverage afforded to an EPO'd up Spanish cyclist being the first to fail a drugs test - fancy that - will be interesting to see in Tuesday's press. A lot more than any football stories considering there is next to nothing going on. A bit of a problem for a footie-based blog for the world's greatest, most famous and most tingling football magazine. So it's back to the Olympics.

Stood amongst the spectacular fireworks of the Olympic opening ceremony was one Lionel Messi.

On August 4, Gerard Houllier did something he is very good at: he lectured people.
