Real Madrid: Down and Out

Ronaldo can't hide his frustration as Real Madrid toil against Osasuna

I don’t normally write about Spanish football, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. As I sat on my sofa watching Cristiano Ronaldo’s face of frustration I couldn’t help but smirk. Osasuna completely played Madrid off the park, with a beautiful finish from Camuñas. Now seven points behind Barcelona, and with the Spainsh head to head system, Madrid would need Barcelona to lose twice and beat them six-nil. Nothing is impossible, but I wouldn’t put a bet on it.
Who doesn’t love the “tiki taca” that Barcelona, and at times Arsenal, play. No arrogance, no diving, just playing teams off the park. The way Madrid play is to win at all cost, no matter what. Barcelona play because they love football. It doesn’t matter if it’s an important game or not. You can just tell they love football. I don’t mean to have a rant,(probably sounds like one), but I just can’t stand arrogance. Something that Mourinho and Ronaldo possess in abundance.
Mourinho is already making a few enemies in Madrid. He tried to hide his emotions at the final whistle, under a snood, but the rest of the players couldn’t. It was similar scenes against Almeria two weeks ago. If Madrid don’t win the title I think the should learn from Barcelona. Bring in some youth, instead of loaning in useless Adebayor and paying him hundred grand a week.
I do not support either team, so I do not hate Madrid, I just love beautiful football.
