Things are now getting so desperate at AC Milan that the fallen giants of Serie A cannot wait until David Beckham parks up at the San Siro.Anything will do to lift the mood, which is currently as depressing as the weather which hangs over the Rossoneri camp following Sunday evening’s 4-2 mauling at Juventus.It wasn’t as if Juve looked like genuine title-contenders - although they thoroughly deserved their victory - it was how woefully inept Carlo Ancelotti’s side were in every area of the pitch.

GOOD DAYVíctor ValdésIt’s high time La Liga Loca paid its dues to the one player that even the most barmy of Barça fans would still see swiftly swapped for an Iker Casillas-shaped shot stopper, if the chance ever came up.Valdés’s clean sheet on Saturday means that Barcelona have yet to concede a goal in their mini league of mayhem against Sevilla, Valencia and Real Madrid. The much-mocked Barça goalie only really had to make proper saves on two occasions, against Drenthe and Palanca, but he did what he had to do when the time came. The Madrid press claim that Barcelona weren’t at their best on Saturday night, but this humble blog thought they played at a fairly decent level, but were blocked out by a team desperate not to be given a hefty hiding.
