Messi scores an excellent goal against Sevilla and less than 10 minutes later he goes off with what looks to be a bad shoulder dislocation. :(

Fellow Aussie Celta supporter! Recently went to Spain and saw them play at the Balaidos. Fantastic atmosphere. What made you support Celta?
Damn, that's awesome af. I was there in June and start of July but obviously, it wasn't football season.

I was originally pretty big on Liverpool but I never actually liked the English league or how big of a club they were, the reason I started to support them was because of Torres.

Then I met someone from Vigo and she introduced me to them and honestly, I'm so ******* glad she did because I love them.

Nice one! I guess theirs a little link with Iago Aspas playing for them as well. I was pretty optimistic with our start but since I went and saw them they have tailed off a bit. Here’s hoping for a better run soon!

Is this one of the most low profile el classicos of all time?

Both teams not looking great, no Messi. There hasn't been the usual media frenzy that accompanies it normally.

Welcome to Real Madrid Antonio.

Sounds like they'll pay us compo for him too. And i wonder if Eden will have no interest in going there now either. Sweet.

Turns out we were both right chef
You said Real wouldn’t make any real landmark signings, I questioned why given it’d see Lopetegui lose his job.

Seems both will happen. Daft not to have spent big and buy another galactico

Yeah, they needed to replace Ronaldo but strangely didnt. Maybe they just couldnt get one(a galactico).

Perez has gone on about buying kids and developing themselves, not sure the club or fans is/are that patient.

Reports that Conte has turned down an offer to join Real. How ******* embarrassing.
I think it's because Ramos had come out saying they don't want a coach who demands respect, but rather one who gets it naturally. Which is basically saying, we don't want Conte or Mourinho but a guy like Zidane who treats them softly.

Perez probably disagrees. I heard he had tried to get rid of Ronaldo for a few years already and is now trying to get rid of Ramos for the same reason, because these players had/have too much power within the club/media.

Real wants to buy a galactico for commercial reasons, which is why they seem to be overly interested in Neymar, while not going for Hazard.

Barcelona 24
Sevilla, Atletico, Alaves 23

Celta, Valencia, Athletic and Villareal just above the relegation spots.

Very interesting season so far.
