Two weeks without proper football is a long time.  Boredom sets in.  The hallucinations begin.  But it's no excuse, dear Spanish tabloids.  There's no excuse for this.  Y'all have very serious, deep-seated issues for which you should seek professional help.  And quickly.

Do Mundo Deportivo and SPORT get displayed under the sporting category at newspaper stands or are they placed next to MAD magazine and any other absurd, black comedy publications?

I think Sport Witness summed it up best:  "Pardon?"

Forget about the neverending David Luiz barrage or the Fernando Torres embarrassing public spectacle where they had him pose with a copy of the cover story and then made that the next cover story, this double feature of epic hilariousness takes the cake.

Yes, MD are claiming that Barcelona will sign Petr Cech, while SPORT finish the sentence by saying that we in turn will sign Victor Valdes.  I'm sorry, I should've warned you to turn your brains off before reading this far.  I'm afraid the damage that's been caused is irreversible.

And I'm not even saying that the Cech deal is impossible.  Well, right now it is but the Thibaut Courtois situation will need some sort of a resolution next summer and some hard decisions may have to be made.  But Victor Valdes?  I... I mean... I just... I just can't.  I'm without speech.
