Silly season open at Real Madrid

A couple of weeks ago, La Liga Loca presented the best goal of the season so far and one of its favourite ever - not Alvaro Negredo's brilliant free-kick flick-up volley type thing, although that was bloody good, but Fernando Llorente's stroke of score-from-the-kick-off genius.

This week, it proudly (and gigglingly) presents the silliest goal of the season so far and definitely one of it's favourite ever: this one scored by Ikechukwu Uche against Real Madrid at the weekend, complete with Arjen Robben's brilliantly blank expression.  (Not to mention some great commentary on the clip, including a bit where he seems to say "no young man, no young man!")

A goal that prompted both of Madrid's sports newspapers to go for the same headline, "Pardillos" (simpletons/hicks/dummies/village idiots/country bumpkins ... take your pick), the Barcelona press to wet itself, and Guti to complain that Madrid had committed the mistake of a four year old.

But if you think that's stupid, a pantomine goal gifted by the back end of the horse, it's nothing compared to this one, scored in a Copa del rey final for Christ's sake!
