Arsenal are having a tough season, there is no doubt about it, but the Spanish champions Real Madrid seem to be in meltdown, with rumours of cliques and warring factions in the dressing room, indiscipline on the pitch and injuries decimating the team. They are 15 points behind their great rivals Barcelona, who they also face in the semi-final of the Spanish cup.
Jose Mourinho is the man responsible for this state of affairs and the fans are letting him know it. The special one hardly ventures out of his dugout at home games now because of the whistles and jeers of the home fans when he does. Spanish newspaper Marca, usually the Madrid supporting newspaper, has waded in this week with a story the Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos, the two captains of the side, had a meeting with the president Perez and let him know that the players wanted Mourinho out.
