MarcaÃ¢ÂÂs furious pounding at the gates of Castle Greyskull means that everything has changed in snowy Spain. Everything. Up is now down, right is now wrong and Andy & Lucas are the new Lennon and McCartneyThe slew of slurry that has been hurled over MadridÃ¢ÂÂs fortress walls began yesterday and does not look like ending any time soon. The journalistic siege was enough to force an under-the-cosh RamÃÂ³n CalderÃÂ³n go on Spanish radio on Tuesday night to confess that Ã¢ÂÂI donÃ¢ÂÂt know what I have to do to demonstrate that IÃ¢ÂÂm not a swine.Ã¢ÂÂ This complete lack of toe-curling toadying in MadridÃ¢ÂÂs direction from Marca has sent the stability-loving La Liga Loca into a bit of tizz. So, to restore some semblance of order to this ever-changing world in which we live in, the blog has sought sanctuary in a couple of family favourites... boardroom battles at Valencia and squabbling at AtlÃÂ©tico Madrid. Over the weekend, AS tracked down the Evertonian Mikel Arteta - primarily to bombard him with questions about the greatness of RaÃÂºl and Real Madrid. But amongst the Bernabeu-based probing, the midfielder was able to make an insightful point concerning Spanish footballÃ¢ÂÂs much-loved hierarchal system - or blame-avoidance strategy as some mischievous souls might suggest. Ã¢ÂÂOver there, we have a president, sporting director, trainer, president of the sporting commission... I see our president once every four months, if I see him at all,Ã¢ÂÂ revealed Arteta. The club that is completely potty about all things presidential is Valencia, which is potentially on the brink of bringing in its fifth in less than a year. For those lucky readers new to the world of Spanish football or have perhaps completely lost track of the madness of Mestalla - hereÃ¢ÂÂs a quick La Liga Loca recap. The very jowley Juan Bautista Soler was president of Valencia until the latter stages of last season. He walked away from the job to be replaced by a stand-in, who was then replaced by Juan Villalonga for about two weeks. The former Telefonica boss made the mistake of commenting on what a complete mess the club was in and was sacked, replaced by Vicente Soriano who was the clubÃ¢ÂÂs VP under Soler but came to an agreement to buy out his former bossÃ¢ÂÂs majority shareholding. Where things have gone a little bit up the swanny since, is that Soriano has yet to stump up the 70 odd million euro needed to take over the Soler clanÃ¢ÂÂs shareholding. And it would appear that the family either want their cash or Soriano out, feeling that he is making a pigÃ¢ÂÂs ear of running of the club. The Solers - a bit like the Cosbys but without the charm but with the comedy - are also reported to be unhappy at SorianoÃ¢ÂÂs inability to lead the Mestalla club out of their current financial mess - the mess left by themselves, mind - that sees them with their bank credit line cut off and unable to sell off the land of the old Mestalla. To make matters worse, El Pais reported over Christmas that the purchase of the land of the new stadium is being investigated by The Man due to the familiar reason of Ã¢ÂÂirregularitiesÃ¢ÂÂ. A crisis meeting between Bautista Soler and Soriano was held on Monday, with Marca reporting that the latter has been given two weeks to sort his affairs out before the old guard potentially move back in and appoint a replacement.Ã¢ÂÂThe hard work we have been doing is about to come to fruition,Ã¢ÂÂ pleaded Soriano to the press, Ã¢ÂÂwe just need more time.Ã¢ÂÂAnd it is presidential problems that is dominating the AtlÃÂ©tico news agenda in the Spanish capital. After SundayÃ¢ÂÂs home defeat to Athletic Bilbao - a loss that saw yet more calls for the sacking of Javier Aguirre - club president Enrique Cerezo decided to tootle on down to the dressing room to meet the despondent players. And it was, vice-captain, Antonio LÃÂ³pez who explained what happened next. Ã¢ÂÂCerezo came into the dressing room after the game and shook our hands. But he didnÃ¢ÂÂt say anything,Ã¢ÂÂ complained the former international full-back. Ã¢ÂÂHe needs to act more with his head and less with his heart,Ã¢ÂÂ continued LÃÂ³pez on his presidentÃ¢ÂÂs less than appreciated gesture. Ã¢ÂÂIn any case, we will find out what he says from the press,Ã¢ÂÂ sniffed the defender with more than a hint that not everything is rosy in AtlÃÂ©ticoÃ¢ÂÂs garden. More dirt was dished during the game when Seitaridis - along with Luis Garcia, seemingly loathed by the CalderÃÂ³n crowd - pulled out at half-time - and at very short notice - claiming a muscle strain, forcing the yet-to-warm-up PernÃÂa onto the pitch. Ã¢ÂÂAll he did was pass backwards,Ã¢ÂÂ complained one witness to the blog on the Greek defenderÃ¢ÂÂs less than stunning performance. Cerezo went before the press on Tuesday to claim that the dressing room was one big happy family. Oh yes. Ã¢ÂÂThere isnÃ¢ÂÂt even the slightest crack, not a single clan,Ã¢ÂÂ beamed Cerezo who said that he had met with Antonio LÃÂ³pez and that they were Best Friends Forever.On Wednesday night, AtlÃÂ©tico have the chance to put all their troubles behind them with a nice Copa del Rey match. Against Barcelona. In the Camp Nou. Oh dear.
