Before Tuesday’s game against Argentina, I insisted that the Olympic semi-final was a win-win situation for us Brazilians.If we beat our arch-rivals from the south, fantastic. The unbeaten run against them would go on – and it’s been a while since Brazil has dominated the clash, especially in decisive games.On the flip side, if Argentina won, no one should cry for us. They would be doing Brazil a favour, by ending the misery of watching one of the Seleção’s worst ever squads and putting hapless coach Dunga out of his misery.And, fortunately or unfortunately – only time will tell – option two came through after an implacable 3-0 Argentina win in Beijing.

In many ways, Real Madrid’s decision to permanently block journalists’ access to their players after training should be seen as a blessing in disguise for the Spanish footballing press.After all, as Marca’s Roberto Gómez puts it, the club is merely “optimising relations with the media, members and supporters.” Yes, it may mean that his colleagues have to work that little bit harder to make up stories, but it does free them from the humiliation of being herded into a pen just to watch ipod-clutching multi-billionaire footballers breeze past as they head for their Batmobiles.

‘Scribble, scratch, scribble’. Today, La Liga Loca is writing a letter. ‘Scratch, scribble, scratch.” Something it hasn’t done in years. La Liga Loca is writing a letter to the Spanish FA, as they have probably never heard of e-mail. Or the internet. Or the Suffragette movement. The blog is proposing the bold move that instead of the traditional three teams being relegated from the top flight this season, up to 10 should be booted into the badlands of the second tier of the Spanish game. La Liga Loca’s spider-sense suggests that there could be a lot of old tosh floating about in the footballing cistern of La Primera this year. Most of which will deserve to be flushed away.
