La Liga Lessons: Madrid violence dominates landscape

LLL is still in an anti-Big Two funk, especially since Real Madrid made buffoons of themselves for an overblown, typically pompous official communication whining about Michel Platini opining that a German should win the Ballon d’Or. Heaven forbid someone who actually won the blooming thing three years in a row should express an opinion on the new holder. The blog suspects the club may not have been so trigger-happy had he expressed his love for Cristiano Ronaldo. But a small pat on the back for the club record 16 wins in a row.
