Well, Madrid have officially appointed Pellegrini. I had made myself okay with it up until I saw the announcement on Real Madrid's website. Now I feel queasy. He will be missed. At least we got the money (2m euros this season, 2m euros next season).
Now I have to determine if I am going to go see Madrid play DC United in Washington, DC (not far from where I live) in August. If I do, it will only be to wear my Villarreal shirt and hold up a sign thanking Pellegrini. Oh, and to boo and whistle Madrid. Speaking of which, anybody reading this going to that match? Or the Chelsea - Milan match on July 24 in Baltimore?
