SaturdayValladolid vs Atlético MadridRight. La Liga Loca is putting its slightly manky club foot down. It cannae take any more. Already jiggery and jittery over the universe ending, England looking good and Marca writing nice things about Lewis Hamilton, the blog will not stand anymore freakery. The icing on the blog’s cracking-up cake was reports from Atleti’s latest training session which described shiny, happy, people full of footballing fun and frolics. There was even a picture of a grinning Javier Aguirre trying to boot Leo Franco up the backside. One man who is determined to put an end to this lunacy is shouty Valladolid coach, José Luis Mendilibar, who notes that the rojiblancos are “in a moment of euphoria and on the crest of a wave. Let’s see how long that lasts.” LLL Prediction - Away win.

La Liga Loca is sitting on a sneaky suspicion that the editor of Barcelona-based Mundo Deportivo may still be resting his Catalan cockles on the beach.After all, Spain dug up another Saint’s day skive this week just to allow the populace to recover from the shock of going back to work after the whole month of August off. Once again, the country proves that Catholicism has more things going for it than the cool hats. Extended pool-side partying from the paper’s big cheese is the only explanation that the blog can think off for Tuesday’s edition which marked a big old line in the sand by daring to suggest that the preening president of Barcelona is a big fat liar with pants on fire. Providing the paper’s offices have not already been wiped out by Laporta’s wet-work SWAT team, someone, somewhere is going to be dangling by their finger nails by the weekend due to the sensational slurs thrown in the Camp Nou direction.Laporta: "Eliminate them, boys"
