    I didn’t see the game but the big story of the game was apparently Maniche’s performance. Many are saying he was the player of the game: defending, creating & almost scoring. This is very good news; he is trying to prove Aguirre was not wrong in keeping him on (we need him big time). This was a sorry Malaga side but I don’t see Atleti dropping many points at home this season. Our 3rd striker Sinama apparently scored the Golazo of the game (Mista – eat your heart out!!!!!)……can’t wait to see the highlights. We will probably sleep in 1st place tonight!!!!!
    Aupa Atleti!!!!!!!!

    Atleti 4 x 0 Malaga
    Numancia 1 x 0 Barcelona
    Deportivo 2 x 1 R. Madrid(Mista, Lopo – Van Nistelroy)

    Aupa Atleti!!!!!!!!

    Wow! Sounds good about Maniche & Sinama. Great to see Heitinga & Ujfalusi working together for the first goal, too!

    Mista scored a goal against Real! :)

    Of last season’s top 3, none could win their game. Barca and Real lost while Villareal drew. We are top f the table until the next game at least.

    Get In….Atletico Are Top…Woop Woop!

  11. Armon said

    What a game, especially since it could’ve been like 8-0 if we took our chances (e.g. hit the post, maniche’s header, and extra opportunities in the last 5/10 minutes). I’m excited now, I went on which has a la liga team of the week every week, and ATLETICO HAD A DEFENDER ON IT!!!!!

  12. Hal said

    Aupa Atleti! :D

  13. Willen said

    I really like Armon’s bottom line: “and ATLETICO HAD A DEFENDER ON IT!!!!!”

    Times have changed..

  14. Ram said

    That was mainly because Heitinga scored a goal.

  15. Armon said

    obviously ram….but ATLETICO HAD A DEFENDER ON IT

    btw valera was just loaned out to racing, im heartbroken ;)

  16. Ram said

    Yes I agree…for some good reason we have a defender in the best 11 list. Also did anybody notice that Pernia did not get a card in 2 consecutive games and played well in both of them??

    And they say miracles don’t happen anymore lol

    Hello friend. The Pobre Atleti’s blog has changed from to I request you change the link, thanks. And you don’t forget to visit the new Pobre Atleti’s web.

    Thanks for the news about your blog, BILLIE! I will update the link soon!

    Good to read that Valera is out of the club for this season. He wasn’t going to get much playing anyway!

  21. Mohammed said

    Valera had such an unlucky season last year. I hope he stays away from injuries and have a good season with Racing.

  22. Mohammed said

    Also, I’ve read that Motta is a free agent as he couldn’t find a club to sign him after failing the medical exams.

    I think signing him was a huge mistake. 2 million euros gone down the drain.

  23. Armon said

    not including the insane annual salary i hear he had. the fact that that scumbag even rejected our offer of a pay per game contract after all the money we threw away for him to play 6 games is incredible

  24. Willen said

    Aguero scored now.. Argentina 1 x 1 Paraguay.

    Who can stop Aguero? we should raise his price to 100.000.000,00EUR. I guess only Cristiano Ronaldo is better than him nowadays.
