Juventus last played in the Champions League on April 6 2006 when they were eliminated from the competition in an insipid display against Arsenal at the Stadio delle Alpi.The Old Lady‘s black and while world then turned a little gray after that and within two months it had fallen apart as calciopoli swept away any vestiges of sporting behaviour within Italian football.Just over 24 months later and after pounding FC Artmedia to smithereens, the Bianconeri are set to dine at Europe’s top table once again.Who says crime doesn’t pay?

There’s just no pleasing some people sometimes... and that includes La Liga Loca.  Ramón Calderón has done the sensible thing and sacked freak-show Bernabéu PA announcer Arturo Sisó, the man that La Liga Loca really, really hates; the man La Liga Loca hammered right here not so long ago.  But is La Liga Loca happy? Well, no, not exactly. Because, in fact, La Liga Loca is feeling a weensy bit sorry for Sisó and his simpleton’s grin this morning.  He’s still an irritating tit who was massively overpaid for being an irritating tit, who should be flogged naked through the streets and have his voice box removed with a rusty knife.

Twelve fun-filled months in the life of Atlético Madrid manager Javier Aguirre are about to be stomped on and squashed into 180 minutes of frenetic football. On Wednesday night, the rojiblancos kick off part one of their terrifying tussle against Schalke in the Champions league qualifying round. For Aguirre, it's been an unforgettable year of dodging the sack, being booed, receiving insults from his players and needlessly gobbing off at Villarreal's club doctor, thinking he was a lowly kitman.  After dragging themselves into fourth last season, wheezing and panting like an Olympic marathon runner, Atlético now need to barge their way past their battling Bundesliga opponents in order to return to the glories of the Champions League after a 4165 day absence.

Where better to begin a renaissance than Florence and where better to cock a snoop at your old employers than scoring in the Champions League.Welcome back Alberto Gilardino, previously second fiddle at AC Milan but now set to hit the high notes at Fiorentina.OK, he only scored against a pretty ordinary and dull Slavia Prague side but what the heck, it’s been an age since we have witnessed those trademark violin-mining playing celebrations.

So glamorous is my job that I had to work 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday, a situation which improved markedly on Monday as Paul Parker (ex-Manchester United and England full-back) came to Barcelona and I met him for something to eat.

Once upon a time, La Liga Loca came across a poor desperate soul who used to work for Marca. And very ashamed he was about it, too. This now ex-Madrid propaganda spouting minion revealed what most people have suspected all along - that the paper just makes stuff up.
