Hiddink, schmiddink. Most of the Chelsea fans I spoke to wanted one man to replace Scolari. The one man Roman Abramovich will never appoint. The outlaw Jose Mourinho.

In a mega-testosterone, time-warped environment when a team can be the bestest of all time in the morning and a big pile of poo come nightfall, three weeks in La Liga is a very, very long time indeed. But that’s about how long Vicente Boluda has been in charge at the Bernabeu since Ramón Calderón and his clan went off for a permanent party at Pachá On the footballing front, it has been simple sailing for Madrid with the side getting the job done as they try and gain ground on Barcelona.

GOOD DAYMad Sammy Eto’o“We’re all quite fed up,” complained the crestfallen presenter on Telemadrid’s football round-up show on Sunday evening. “Barcelona keep on winning.” If their remarkable streak achieves nothing more than annoy the heck out one of the most objectionable TV stations on the planet, then La Liga Loca is more than happy to see Pep’s Dream Boys continue on their winning ways until the end of time. Sunday’s 3-1 win over Sporting was very much by-the-book and owed a great deal to a brace from Samuel Eto’o who has now racked up 21 goals in 21 games. But so consistently good is the Cameroonian striker that this remarkable goalscoring rate has gone fairly unnoticed.

A common myth that needs to be laid to rest is that the trains always ran on time when Benito was in charge. They never did and, generally, they still don’t. But when they do it’s like having your birthday and Christmas all come at once. It’s especially true when gliding through the Italian countryside on a Friday morning at something in the region of 300km per hour in the lavish comfort of Trenitalia’s appropriately-named Red Arrow train.It is certainly the age of the train – connecting Milan with Rome in a mere three and a half hours, cutting a good hour off the old time.
