Foreign view: Liga lift-off

Typical Spanish, always late. La Liga kicks off this
weekend, and not before time.

Real Madrid's epic spending splurge has made it the most
hotly-anticipated season since Luis Figo swapped Catalonia for Castille in 2000.

So what better time to spread your wings and get involved in
Fantasy Liga?

As with the Serie A game, most newcomers have a 'proper'
value (sorry - no bargain basement Cristiano Ronaldo), and big-name players are
staggeringly expensive.

Ronaldo (30.91) will cost you nearly a third of your
hard-earned wonga, and is even more expensive than Lionel Messi (28.35).

If you sign only one megastar, you will have to be careful with
your money elsewhere in the side, but thankfully there are a few bargains
lurking about.

Xabi Alonso (5.23) is an absolute steal, while his Real
Madrid team-mate Raul Albiol (1.00) is already owned by more than 50 per cent
of managers.
