Dear Mr. Rijkaard,
it has come to my attention that Javier Saviola, the Argentine striker currently at Barcelona, has scored six gols in the past three games, including a hat-trick tonight against Alaves in the Copa Del Rey. Please start him at the weekend ahead of that waster from Iceland who has stolen his number seven shirt.
Barça also conceded two tonight against a team in the Segunda Liga, twelfth in the Segunda, and were generally rubbish aside from Javier. Thankfully their next game is against 'nastic, a team who ought be in the Segunda.
In other news, Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon railed on just about everyone today; the players, the fans, former club president Florentino Perez and Real punching bag de jour, David Beckham. And the club fined coach Fabio Capello for giving the finger to fans at the Saragossa game on Sunday. It's always nice to know that however bad things are at Barça right now they're so much worse in Madrid. Good night.
