Malaga CF

Postby Hams » Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:14 pm

Could Manuel Pellegrini's side Malaga CF be serious challengers
this season to take on both Barcelona and Real Madrid at the top of the table.

The club have now signed the likes of Santi Carzola,Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Jeremy Toulalan,

I don't expect them to win the title but at least to give the other 2 something to think about.

As much as I love Spanish football and La Liga the last couple of seasons have been pretty boring if I'm being honest.

Any comments?

Its a shame that Malaga's first La Liga game of the season will be at home to Barcelona!

It might take some time for all the new players that Manuel Pellegrini has signed to work as a unit.

We really need another team to start putting pressure on the big 2 and this is the only club now that can do it.

i think it is early to ssay that Malaga will put pressure to the big 2 , like that of Man City , it takes more than 2 seasons to become one of the big 4 , we can hope that Malaga will do better this seson ,and i think Manuel Pellegrini a good manager! :D :D (!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

If you believe some of the rumours circulating in Spain about Malaga it seems like the Qatari owners bought the club and then made a lot of noise about making them the next Chelsea etc. as they wanted this to help them get approval from the regional authority to build a new marina. Having got the approval they are now trying to cut loose from the club.

I dont know how much truth there is to this, but what we are seeing now does seem to add weight to the allegations. Something has clearly gone very wrong at Malaga recently. There were reports of player unrest then Cazorla hands in a transfer request. Last season (prior to that marina approval) there was a lot of money being invested into signings but this year so far not a penny has been spent. In fact, the owners have even stopped paying outstanding club debts and a sale is said to be imminent.

When they were buying players, they went for a lot of aging stars too...van nistleroy, joaquin, baptista, demichelis etc who have either left or are on big contracts and looking well past their best.

Basically, the club is a total mess. Not chance of a challenge to the big two from them (or sadly from anyone else either).

Until the financial inequality is sorted in La Liga the gap frmo Barca/Real to the rest will remain scandalously huge. In fact, seeing as teams like Atletico and Valencia are being forced to sell star players this summer the gap might even get bigger.
