SPANISH FOOTBALL LIGA | SIGNINGS NOT MAKING THE GRADE

Not much relevant & differing content from Spanish Football these days with the Liga on hold as the Football Calendar makes room for International commitments. However, Spanish Sports daily "Marca" publishes an interesting article worth a post. The paper looks at some of the big name signings for Liga Clubs this last summer & compares their playing time. Some names & their lack of team contribution will surprise.

Some notable examples, this summer FC Barcelona made a considerable economic effort to strengthen their defensive line. Two names Vermaelen &
Douglas were signed but have been virtually unseen, with the former with zero playing time due to injury & the latter just 73 min & a bad prformance in his only game to date. Another surprising name is Mexican International goalkeeper Ocha who has not played an official match as yet. This is surprising as he was a "revelation" in the last World Cup in Brazil. Lastly, another name to note - from the many - is Cerci who has only played 77 mins with Atletico de Madrid, he is currently a regular "bench warmer", but paradoxically has been called up to the Italian National Team.

Most of these names will have to lift their game & Club contribution as the "Winter Market Transfer" window opens the 1st of January & some may find themselves on the market as transfer opportunities or loan candidates.

Stay tuned.
