I’ll have 4 El Clasicos, please

What kind of ill-informed lunatic would take it upon themselves to write that numerous, bonus versions of El Clasico could even possibly be a little bit of a bad thing.  I apologize.  Sometimes my logic is 43% burnt.

Here are some links and commentary to get in the mood (as if any of us need them!):

Excellent writing in this Sid Lowe piece on the implications of the gloriously impending avalanche of El Clasicos in Spain and beyond.  Here is a teaser:

“Nothing like this has ever happened before: the nearest was four games in 21 days in 1916, with Santiago Bernabéu getting one of the goals – and, never mind the 95-year-gap, one Catalan newspaper really did note that Barcelona had been ‘robbed’ back then.”

That last sentence made me laugh out loud in amazement.  Definitely read the whole column.

Nice UEFA.com overview of the rivalry.

Goal.com recounts the Top 10 goals in El Clasico history.

The Spoiler lovingly defiles the Clasico as only they can.

More soon.
