- The endlessly entertaining Diego Torres of El Pais (even if you don't believe him, that would only mean the quality of the fiction is stellar) has released an excerpt of his new book on the Mourinho era at Real Madrid. You thought the Red Bull story was a little over-the-top? Well enjoy reading.
- And finally, a beautiful article from ESPN by Tim Vickery on Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano: South American's Greatest. Required reading for any Madrid fan!
