It doesn’t take much to kick up a bit of a fuss in Spain.

When a supporter of a successful Premier League team is asked: “What is the longest journey in football?” they will instantly waffle on about their trek to the far east of Europe for a Champions League qualifier.

If we’re being honest, we all think we know better than even the Premier League’s finest managers. And now you’ve now got the chance to prove you can mix it with the best, thanks to the FourFourTwo Fantasy Football League.Simply put together your very own fantasy Premier League XI (although Mark Hughes may be concerned to learn you’ll only get £50 million to do it) and compete against your friends, the Great British public and even the despicable miscreants the lurk around FourFourTwo Towers in a battle for Fantasy Football glory.

Every morning, the small business owners of Spain are peering into the pages of Marca and AS to discover if Alvaro Negredo has decided that Hull City’s for him or if Aston Villa are willing to stump up the cash for pocket-rocket, Wesley Sneijder. After all, these two transfers are the last, best hope for the country’s struggling entrepreneurs of making it through the summer in these terribly tough financial times. La Liga Loca suspects that Spain’s banks had to hand over every spare cent to fund Real Madrid’s quarter-of-a-billion-euro splurge on their fancy-pants footballers. And that’s even taking into account the €90 million that ex-prez Ramón Calderón claims he left in the club’s kitty before stepping down to spent a lot of time in court. Of course, that figure may have been a little higher had the club not had to pay off members of staff who were forced to quit having been accused of vote-rigging at the club’s AGM back in December. However, El País is just one of the papers who report that the plan hatched in Castle Greyskull was to sell a good €100 million worth of unwanted wasters - mainly of the Dutch variety - to start paying back the insane sums that had been borrowed. Funds that may in turn be lent to the good, good, people of Spain who actually need it, as opposed to an ego-bursting club president who simply wants to be adored. However, not everything has gone to plan in the Spanish capital with a rather limp and droopy €32 million or so having been raised so far, instead. Javier Saviola moved to Benfica for €5 million (much of which went to pay off his contract). The same club also stumped up €7 million for Javi García.
