Well, we've had some chat in all the threads, but indeed I felt like talking about Real Madrid disappointing in Spain and with Fortuna Sittard playing surprisingly well for a team that looked lost and depleted a few weeks ago.
Real Madrid first, man, it looks like Barcelona is having an easy season despite all the injuries for some of their star players. It ain't easy to win it all, but to have two losses already is very early and maybe it's the rumling around Ronaldo looking to leave, but ... Madrid already slipping. That's early.
Fortuna Sittard has been a surprise. 7 points in 5 games is decent, the losses weren't blow-outs and against top flight teams and last Friday they beat a favorite for the title at home and the 1-0 win was not even enough to show the number of chances they created. The coach is a likeable local guy who has made a squad of strangers, foreigners and rentals into a bunch of friends within a few weeks. 11 players who work for each other. Loving it right now.
