SaturdayRecreativo (16th) vs Sevilla (3rd)La Liga Loca knows it. You know it. Heck, even master prediction-maker (still waiting for Pedja’s sacking, still waiting) Roberto Gómez knows it - Manolo Jiménez will be shot out of Sevilla’s footballing toaster this summer and banished to the kitchen bin of doom. Although the Andalusian club is sitting pretty in third, the fact Juande Ramos’ replacement has bored the pants off the Sánchez Pizjuán faithful over the past year-and-a-half with his defensive stylings means that Jiménez’s goose is cooked. However, the man himself is still talking a good - if slightly insane - game over his future. “I want to take Sevilla to the Champions League and win it,” claimed a potentially happy-pill-taking Jiménez over the international break. LLL Prediction - DrawValladolid (9th) vs Barcelona (1st)This week, Barcelona’s title dreams were as dashed and pulverised as an unfortunate height-related accident that once befell one of La Liga Loca’s hamsters. Rather than being this season’s silverware that has been lost, it was the title from 1937 that was blown. Back in the days of the Spanish Civil war, a mini-league was held in the then Republican Zone between eight teams including Barcelona, Espanyol, Valencia and Levante. Barcelona won the truncated tournament, but it has never officially been recognised especially since the absent Madrid clubs were being shelled into oblivion by Franco at the time. However, Barça’s bid for their title to be recorded was rejected by the Spanish FA this week, who argue that it was not organised by themselves and therefore does not count. Meanwhile, in not-really-that-shocking news, there is a strong possibility that the Valladolid clash will be blacked out to all and sundry due to a TV contract dispute. LLL Prediction - Away winAlmería (13th) vs Villarreal (4th)The main advertising aim of Lynx - the poor man’s Old Spice - is to convince its potential buyers that just a couple of squirts from the sickly smell-masker are required to make someone with a face like a yawning Gordon Brown irresistible to hot ladeez. The Spanish version of the product, called Axe, has tested this marketing theory to breaking point by revealing one of the faces for the product in Spain.
