Galacticos: 2009

Less than 6 weeks ago FCBarcelona strolled into the Santiago Bernabeu and made Real Madrid look nothing less than foolish, getting goals from center backs Puyol and Pique en route to a 6-2 thrashing.

In response Real Madrid has gone out and bought arguably 2 of the top 5 players in the game; the straight line, thank the lord for my ability, Brazillian orchestrator Kaka....and basically his opposite, the "I'm the first second and third best player in the world," prostitute adoring, Portuguese megalomaniac Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's undeniable that if these two (and the other 9 out there, can't forget) generate an understanding Real Madrid will be a force in both Spain and Europe next year.

My allegiances and a belief in the absurd nature of predictions give me an excuse for not going out on a limb and making any predictions.

However, I will say this.....These two purchases immediately make the La Liga the league to watch going into next year. And there is a TBD December weekend when Real Madrid v Barcelona will face off in the most anticipated soccer game of the 2nd half of 2009.
