Don’t believe the hype about the English Premier League. Real, grown-up football is back again.While the Premier League has been slogging away, humping long balls into the overcast skies of a late English summer, cooing over a Barcelona has-been and seeing one of their marquee sides lurch into the Champions League with a last-minute face-saver, Serie A’s finest have been lounging around the pool, chatting up the local lovelies.Actually, they haven’t, that’s what Serie Aaaaargh! has been doing. In fact, each and every one of the 20 teams in the top flight have been going through a torturous pre-season boot camp in preparation for what will be a marathon campaign. It’s no wonder the players can’t wait to get back out on the pitch this weekend.

Merciful Zeus! Atlético Madrid have done it!La Liga Loca can finally pack their lunch box, hand over the bus fare and wave at them from its front door wiping tears from its eyes. The rojiblancos are going out into the Big Wide World. The rojiblancos have grown up on us. Even now the blog is flicking through the photo album, wondering how quickly time has passed. Look, there’s Atleti losing to some Hungarians in the Intertoto Cup. And who can forget the moment when they failed to score against Bolton in 180 minutes of football. Happy days.
