    Sorry it is in Spanish, but basically it assures that Metzelder goes to Real Madrid for the next season.

    Those of you familiar with German footie, what do you think? Will Borussia miss him? Will Madrid benefit greatly from it?

    I think M. is just right what of the many things Real Madrid needs after the disappointment of the Champions League.

    Not bad if it's a free transfer. But that's it. Real's problems run much deeper than a few good signings.

    More insight would be aprecciated.

    Capello's leaving very, very soon after he fails at getting the national.

    Raul is not leaving, nor the other spoiled mafia old timers there.

    Yet, if nothing can be done with that, is Metzelder a good fresh air or not?

    At best, it's like lighting an incense candle in a garbage dump.

    Insightful enough for you?

    Your literary techniques to illustrate such deep subjects dazzle me.

    I was expecting a comprehensive opinion about the problems of Real Madrid from the management and sports points of view.

    Since you weren't getting it, I had to dumb my language level down and use more visual elements. That's why children's books have lots of images.

    BVB will definitely miss him....he's a decent defender, something that Real don't seem to think necessary in recent seasons!!

    He'll do a good job for you if it's true.....I hope it's not, as someone with a history of regular trips to watch BVB play....

    And you have lots of experience reading those, isn't it?

    Edit. The more I read you the more I am against brothers and sisters
    marrying and reproducing. Does your daddy still call 'sis' your mom?

    That's the icing on the cake. An attack on my parents just after hinting I'm childish.
