In a slow club-news week, a comment like this stands out:
"Real Madrid did not win the last two championships, Barcelona lost them."
So said Barcelona frontman Joan Laporta this week. The implication is obviously that Barca was better than Madrid each of the last two years, regardless of the season's outcome. I don't really care what his view is, but I just think it is worth reminding President Laporta that great Barcelona were a full 10 points behind Villarreal. Did they lose second place as well?
