It is still early days, but a number of things are beginning to take shape already. One is that Madrid look the most likely winners of La Liga this season. Deportivo are going well, but I don't think Pandiani can maintain this scoring rate indefinitely. Sociedad are also looking good but they won't have a big enough squad for both La Liga and the Champions League this year. Barca look like they're going to finish outside the top five again, the only player they seem to have is Ronaldinho and they were lucky to scrape past Albacete last weekend. So who will go down? At the moment, I think Albacete are certainties. The competition to avoid the other two places looks like being between Zaragoza, Murcia, Espanyol and Malaga. I think Malaga are good enough to pull themselves out of their current bad run, so that leaves the other three, and it's very hard to pick between them. Zaragoza - I hope - are strong enough to stay up, even though they still lack scoring forwards - David Villa is not good enough, in my opinion. Paco Flores is also getting a bit of flak from the press these days. Murcia - again, don't have too many forwards, but have a general solidness which doesn't often see them concede many goals (except when they travel to La Romareda). Espanyol - I don't know that much about, their results are always erratic and they don't have any real stars, but with a former Spanish international manager in charge, they also have a good chance of winning the dogfight. Any opinions? P.S. Quien es El Moro? Morientes?
