Copa del Rey

Real Madrid fell 4-0 today in the Copa del Rey to Alcorcon. The hot seat under Pelligrini has got to be blazing after today's drubbing at the hands of the third division side.

ETA by JoeyClams: Sid Lowe in the Guardian gives the lowdown on what the Spanish press are saying about the Real humiliation in the Copa del Rey. Basically, new Madrid president Florentino Perez, who went through 6 managers in 3 years during his last stint as president, is ready to throw his current manager under the bus. Seems this is a pattern for Perez. What isn't a pattern is buying defenders for his Galacticos 2.o experiment. Perez spent over £254m this summer and only £3.5m was spent on a defender. I guess he figured his team could just win games 10-9 or something. Whatever he thought, it's clear that Pelligrini is going to take the fall when all Perez has to do is look in the mirror to figure out what has gone wrong.
