Schalke striker Raul confirmed at a press conference this morning that he will not be accepting the club’s offer of a one year contract extension. Stating that it had been “really tough“, the ex-Real Madrid player cited his family as the reason behind the decision. “In the Bundesliga you don’t have much time with your family,” he said. “My choice of which league to join will reflect my desire to spend more time with my family.”
Unfortunately, he gave little in the way of clues as to where we should set up our new stalking base, other than it should be somewhere “outside Europe“.
Well, that narrows it down, doesn’t it?

The oversights were flowing thick and fast at Kickette HQ this week.
Luckily, we mopped them up in this post. Cool, no?

It would suit our work/relaxation ratio much better if league-changing events were restricted to the weekend.
Sadly, it seems that no one cares about this apart from us.
