Hello and welcome to Viva La Liga a new la liga based blog for the lovers of spanish football. Please feel free to comment or reproduce my work.
This week we found out that Barcelona will play Real Madrid in the 'el classico' battle four times in the next few weeks, Pep will not enjoy this but I think Mourinho will be delighted at the chance to avenge the 5-0 drubbing. Some more bad news for Barcelona fans know with Mascherano suspended for the next el classico.
In other news Almeria have appointed Roberto Olabe to replace Jose Luis Oltra after he was sacked for lack of results. Almeria are at rock bottom and I don't think they can pull anything out of the bag, although with a new man in charge who knows. Olabe who is a former goalkeeper who played for Real Sociedad was sporting director at Almeria so he should know the club inside out and have good connections with regards to management. Now for my weekly rant but this week its really a moan, Levante who sit in 9th place currently have a stadium with capacity of 25,000, yet they only get 7/8,000 through the gates. Does anyone know why and if so please comment, I know its overshadowed by its close rival Valencia.
Buenas suerte amigo's
