Spain: Eduardo Alvarez's Quiniela

Are you, dear reader, wondering how the aftermath of the last super mega derby felt in a Madridista's skin? I'll be succinct. Lack of appetite. Alcohol in excess. Endless remorse about poorly kept pre-match superstitions. Constant rhetorical questions about the ability of specific Real Madrid players to rise to the occasion - 'rhetorical' as in 'I already know the effing answer'. Troubled sleep. Recurring fights with girlfriend, who dared to suggest me to switch teams, a comment that can hardly been forgiven, neither forgotten. But the worst? The painful realisation that, for as long as Josep Guardiola occupies that Azulgrana bench, Real Madrid's sporting achievements will be rare and few.
