With two games left to play in their league, Real Madrid's Benjamin B (aka Under 9) team was proclaimed league champions. Now, normally I wouldn't post something like this here, but I thought it would be a cute/fun/no-wank/stress-free post not only to gaze in awe at their results table, but also for all the fans of other teams to check their club's website and discuss the future home grown stars of their clubs! Oh yeah, and also because Zidane's youngest son is part of this league winning team, so shout out to Zizou.

MILAN MILAN SOLO CON TE

After 7 years without a title, we've won our 18th SCUDETTO!

CAMPIONI D'ITALIA!!



With a new sense of teamwork, the great heart of defense made up of Thiago and Nesta, the new youngin's being awesome, our veterans showing how it's done, Allegri's tactics, our forwards' determination to score goals, we've come to the end of the season. And, of course not without the times when our team caused us heart attacks and kept us on the edge of our seats, We've managed to win the Scudetto!

Interwiew: Busquets and Pedro

Edit: Okay, about whether the interview is legit. First I'd like to say if it were just random quote I came across online, I wouldn't have bothered to post it, let alone to translate it, for its dubious credibility. Now, I can't say every line in this interview is exactly how it's originally said (the "original" is a translation itself, after all) or that the reporter didn't change or twist something when he was happily transcribing. But the magazine is a pretty serious one. It's a member of the European Sports Magazines and partners to Frace Football, Don Balon etc...I know I know, it doesn't mean they don't write bullshit at all, and I have to say it can be biased or ill-informed in its commentaries as every other sports paper/mag. But as far as interviews go they're quite decent. They have reporters working in Europe to conduct the interviews personally. That's why I believe they at least didn't make the whole interview up. I'll just add the pics that come with it (sorry for the crappy quality, that's what happens when you don't have a scanner) - I'm willing to believe they're taken at this particular interview, but if someone know otherwise please tell me. Then I can delete this whole post because god knows I'd be GLAD if Busquets and Pedro didn't say this whole bunch of rubbish after all.

And for those who doubt if European players do interviews with Asian media - yes they do. I know a Japanese mag ran a column to which a few RM players took turn to contribute - probably written by their PR people, but still a Japanese fan said they were fun to read, as there were usually some anecdotes that weren't seen elsewhere, and it read like the players were talking a little more freely than they do to the local press.

Edit II: In response to some of the comments - just because it's a "random Chinese magazine" doesn't automatically makes it a big fat unscrupulous liar. And I repeat: yes European players do give interviews to the Asian press. But no, there's no proof in the form of audio or video or whatever of whether the interview is legit or not. The most I can tell you about this magazine is as I've said above. It's up to you to decide.

I'm so getting over the clasicos already, but then there's this interview in a newly released issue of a football magazine, which is...well, let's just say it's a terrific read when you're really bored, coz it makes you laugh, yell, swear, face palm, tear at your hair, have an urge to throw something out of the window and stab at your pillow all at the same time.

In this exclusive interview with Football Weekly, two lovely souls that are senor Sergio Busquets and senor Pedro Rodriguez have something very insightful to say on the criticisms against them after the clasicos, Real Madrid and their NT teammates...

*Original in Chinese, translated by moi
**This is not the full translation of the interview, as 1) I'm to lazy to do so and 2) there're things that are irrelevant to the clasico topic. But to each question the answers are translated fully. So nothing is taken out of context.

Not Delilah, not Kelsey Had 'em both in my palm. But I dropped them for Chelsea.



I'mma spare you guys my tl;dr bungsten burner bullshit today, because BB PIKCHURZZZ take much higher precidence! Basically Chelsea drew 2-2 in their final home game of the season with Newcastle. All four goals in the match were scored by defenders! But no1curr, because there's adorable baller bbs!

West Ham mathematically sealed their relegation today with a disappointing loss to Wigan after being 2-0 up in the first half, Arsenal lost at home to Aston Villa, and Chelsea conceded a last minute equaliser to Newcastle. So it hasn’t failed to escape my notice that 2010-2011 has been a monumentally disappointing season for teams in LDN. What follows is almost quintessentially Bungy; a tl;dr write-up about each of the London team’s fail (except Fulham, who I haven’t been following that closely, sowwie), with a little something something from The Guardian for each.

(slightly off-topic, but can anyone else think of a day when all the away teams scored two goals exactly?)

And finally, I’mma put it to a vote – all factors considered, which London team in the premier league do you thinks had the most disappointing season (note it’s disappointing and not “worst”, because that would obviously be West Ham.)
Poll #1741673 Which team had the most frustrating season?

Which team had the most frustrating season?

Chelsea
44(13.6%)
Arsenal
222(68.7%)
Tottenham
17(5.3%)
Fulham
3(0.9%)
West Ham
37(11.5%)

I’ll end with one positive note though; Queen Park Rangers didn’t get a point deduction so they are well and truly in the premier league, so even though West Ham have gone down, their coming up means there will still be five London teams in the season next year, so eight London derbies in the premier league for each club! It also means that, for the first time in quite a while, West London teams outnumber North London teams!

HAI 3RD STAR

I know there aren't many people on here who follow the Dutch league, but today Ajax won their 30th Eredivisie title. And I'm a very happy girl.

Ajax snatch title from champions Twente in decider



Ajax won their 30th Dutch title after beating champions FC Twente 3-1 in Amsterdam in Sunday's title decider.

Twente, who beat Ajax 3-2 in last weekend's Dutch Cup final, went into the game leading by a point.

A Siem de Jong goal and a Denny Landzaat own goal put Ajax 2-0 up before Twente hit back through Theo Janssen to set up a thrilling climax. But a second De Jong goal made the game safe as Ajax secured their first Dutch title win since 2004.
