Phil Ball in Spain

Just in case you wanted to know, Atletico Madrid's veterans stuffed Real Madrid's 7-0 on Friday afternoon, and Ricky Carvalho beat Diego Forlan 1-0 in the FIFA 11 (virtual) game in a Madrid hotel the same day. The scorer was Ronaldo, of course. Interestingly, in the real thing on Sunday night, Carvalho opened the scoring and Forlan failed to find the net, but the Uruguayan was at least remaining faithful to tradition. Atletico have now failed to beat their neighbours in the Madrid 'derbi' since the 1999-00 season, and often stand accused of not really going for it, particularly in the Bernabeu.
