GOOD DAYMad Sammy EtoÃ¢ÂÂoÃ¢ÂÂWeÃ¢ÂÂre all quite fed up,Ã¢ÂÂ complained the crestfallen presenter on TelemadridÃ¢ÂÂs football round-up show on Sunday evening. Ã¢ÂÂBarcelona keep on winning.Ã¢ÂÂ 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 PepÃ¢ÂÂs Dream Boys continue on their winning ways until the end of time. SundayÃ¢ÂÂs 3-1 win over Sporting was very much by-the-book and owed a great deal to a brace from Samuel EtoÃ¢ÂÂo 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 donÃ¢ÂÂt. But when they do itÃ¢ÂÂs like having your birthday and Christmas all come at once. ItÃ¢ÂÂs 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 TrenitaliaÃ¢ÂÂs appropriately-named Red Arrow train.It is certainly the age of the train Ã¢ÂÂ connecting Milan with Rome in a mere three and a half hours, cutting a good hour off the old time.
Ricardo Quaresma slipped in to Milan under the radar at the tail-end of the August transfer window and slipped out again in January with barely anyone noticing.While the only footage covering his move to England was either the Inter dud strolling on as substitute and being substituted in between blasting a volley over the bar.The Portuguese has been the Robbie Keane of Serie A - it would have been so fitting had he joined Spurs, but his failure to impress in Italy has been another strain on Jose MourinhoÃ¢ÂÂs relationship with Massimo Moratti.
