I am a bit intrigued by that Eden Hazard guy in Chelsea, though. They've been a sturdy, boring club for a long while now, probably since the days of Robben (and he was always injured, anyway).. it would be interesting to see what they can do with a spark of creativity. Also would be great to see Torres recover his form, at his best he's a great, great striker.

And it's pretty sad what's happened with Wenger and Arsenal. They had such a promising team just a couple of years ago, Van Persie, Fabregas, Nasri, so much style, and it all just fell apart. I have a feeling that Wenger is a great coach, just wrong place/wrong time.

Still, the Spanish superclubs are head and shoulders above the rest, IMO. There really needs to be a Barca-Real CL final while Ronaldo, Casillas and Mourinho are still the stars in Madrid. Messi is younger, he'll be around for a while, but it wouldn't be the same without the main nemesis.
It's only a few games but Hazard is more than living up to his billing so far. He's been really fun to watch. Brings a totally new dimension to their attack and look at what it's doing for Torres so far. Win Win....
