27 seconds of football!
Venturing into the world of La Liga - which the brilliant Spanish Football and Sports blog by Striker covers so well (see link in sidebar) - is quite rare for EFT but the events at the Bernabeu last Sunday were something else. Real Madrid have been cruising in first place for the duration of this season but a recent away defeat at Almeira gave Barca a bit of hope and then when playing Getafe managed by Michael Laudrup (someone I am seriously looking at as a future Arsenal manager in the making) this amazing 27 seconds of football occured to really shake things up at the top of La Liga. For those who haven't seen it check it out below:
Especially if Barca go onto win the title this goal will go into footballing history as a classic example of how at any time something can happen in a game that simply amazes with its sheer unpredictability plus awesome power to dramatically change not just a game but a whole season. From Robben's finish to Uche's finish and celebration it is 27 seconds of drama that sums up why football is fantastic.
