Phil Ball in Spain

So it's all over for another year, save the final act at Wembley next week. As in the English Premier League, the final stages of the season in La Liga seemed more exciting with regard to the relegation issues than with the destiny of the top spots. There are probably two reasons for this relatively new phenomenon. The first is that the identity of the top four sides now (in either league) is hardly a secret, and there have been few surprise sides emerging in recent years to challenge the select groups who occupy the top of the pyramid in their respective leagues. But another consideration would seem to be the fact that to drop out of the top division now is a more serious thing than it ever was previously.
