PIPITA & GAGO Can't Save Real

Wow! I guess Diego was spot on when he mentioned that Spain’s La Liga was the best in the world. When Real Madrid took on Sevilla FC, it was another goal fest. A little earlier, Valladolid followed the footstep of Villareal by staging a dramatic comeback from three goals against Osasuna.

Okay, now back to Real against Sevilla as the future of their boss, Bernd SCHUSTER looks to be more uncertain then ever. At one point the visitor were 3-1 up. But two quick goals from Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Fernando GAGO level the score to 3-3. However RENATO’s 85th minute broke all the All-White hope as Sevilla took away the three points.

Meanwhile Napoli maintain their position at fourth place in Serie A with a 2-0 win over Siena. German DENIS strike in the 72nd minute ensure that the Naples side return back to winning ways.

Serie A top scorer Diego MILITO was the hero in the Derby of Genoa between as his scored the sole goal against the neighbour Sampdoria.

In the Greek Super League, there were goals from Fernando BELLUSCHI and Ismael BLANCO. Not only that, they both their respective teams winning goal in the 28th minute (according to Soccernet that is.)

BELLUSCHI was on target for Olympiakos against Levadiakos.

While BLANCO provided the winner for AEK Athens against Panthrakikos.

NBA News….

The Detroit Pistons crashed at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks 92-104. Walter HERRMANN had 4 points, 2 rebounds & 1 block shot.

Great Argie-goal gallery, John!

Thanks for the vids!

OK, you all know I love him, but my personal favourite has to be the one Diego MILITO scored for Genoa, if only for the importance of that hot derby with Sampdoria.

What a header!

I also enjoyed Kun's overhead-kick and it was curious to see three players that learned their tricks in the Argentine league getting all of Atletico's 5 goals.

Apart from Kun and Maxi, Diego FORLAN (despite being from Uruguay) joined Independiente when he was a non-professional youngster and made his debut for the Argentine Red Devils before moving to Old Trafford and then to Villarreal and then to Atletico.

Great showing from him too.

Here's hoping this incredible wave of Argie goals continue at least until the end of the summer of 2010, if you know what I mean!

I am Real Madrid big fan. I am not happy what schuster is doing right now. Real defence shouod be more organize. Even a saint (Cassilas) can't save them.

It is great that pipita and gago scored. And i don't think Real go for Arshavin. A great defender is what they need right now.

Great golfest from the Argie boys. Love everyone of them.

Real need a great defender for a long time now but never buy them. They always go for stars and big names rather than what's needed. Is Real still interested in Mr. Balon 'Or. If still, the problem in the back line will still persist. I think Saint Iker is getting tired of this abuse.

You know what, I'll agree with you on the defensive issues Real supporters. I still can't understand why did they let go Gabriel MILITO many years back.

They did brought in Walter SAMUEL but partnering him with Ivan HELGUERA did not help him as the Spaniard was real big leakage all the time.

It would have been real wall if SAMUEL was still around to link with CANNAVARO.

However I still the habit of going after big stars is not all over at the Bernabau. They would still try to go after RONALDO next season.

I think that was Gago's first goal in Europe. Maybe with a taste, he will become more bloodthirsty near the goal.

Another interesting move that might be in store for us when the transfer window opens in January.

Marcos ANGELERI of Estudiantes de la Plata could be on the verge to join Kun AGUERO, Maxi RODRIGUEZ, Leo FRANCO and Ever BANEGA as he is currently being pursuit by Atletico Madrid. Read more about it on the following link and please share with us a little bit more about him.
