Madrid wins again. What fun is winning the title without a little sweat?

Well Man United have guaranteed themselves one trophy.
Just won in penalties over Spurs in the Carling Cup.
Not exactly the most exciting game.

Getting real close now. Barca was up 1-0 the only time I saw the score.

Aguero wins it for Atletico.
It's going to be an interesting finish to the La Liga season.

What's going to matter is when they play at the Bernabeu later in the season. I'm totally disappointed in this team. Just goes to show that having a record start doesn't mean **** if you can't finish in good form.

BBC SPORT | Football | My Club | L | Liverpool | Torres injuries cost us - Benitez
I really think Benitez is living in la la land, I know that Liverpool have plenty off-field issues, but did Benitez really believe that Ngog and El Zhar were good replacements for Torres?

Doesn't make much sense does it? It's not like there is a shortage of goalies out there either. Barca could put in a big bid for even a guy like Tim Howard and they would improve immensley in goal.

Check out this list of guys that United tried to replace Schmeichel: Mark Bosnich, Fabien Barthez, Roy Carroll, Tim Howard, Ricardo, etc. United won titles after the Great Dane left but the position was never really solidified until we Van De Saar came north.
Barca have had similar issues, Mr. I you probably know more names than I do but it seems like Barca have gone through a ton of goalies as well: Vitor Baia, Victor Valdes, Recber Rustu among otheres.

I completely agree with you guys. If Barca had a legit goaltender (Didn't they have Jose "Pepe" Reyes?!) they would be WAY better.
