Real Madrid – La Liga Opinion of Santiago Siguero
It was an anonymous display of LaLiga‘s waist (now spelt like this) against Storm Filomena, Some games are suspended, others are postponed and some are forced to play despite the dubious conditions.
Finally, the squaring of the circle has been achieved, the tournament is on everyone’s lips, for better or for worse, depending on how the wind blows.
In the case of Real Madrid, it isn’t necessary to be a particle physicist to settle guilt, liability quotas and evidentiary charges. At this point, the only evidence is that Los Blancos lost two points after playing in a freezer and that the squad will now spend a week away from home, on tour like those promoted by Santiago Bernabeu in the 1950s and 60s, or the exotic jaunts to Asia in the early 2000s.
The only difference is that Real Madrid will not see a single Euro for this tour, but in actual fact it will cost them money, let alone actual league points.
The odyssey may hold a title for the Museum, but it fuels the underlying debate, which is none other than the SuperLeague which looms over the future of top-level football. LaLiga Santander, which is far from being super after events like this weekend, would do well to try and defend themselves, they should try and improve their product, decisive press F5 and refresh.
The grown-ups are not bluffing and without their presence, the league simply cannot be sustained.
