Riquelme won't be a Spur...

Spurs supporters will be dissappointed as Riquelme has joined Atletico Madrid:

Big news - and positive news - out of Spain on an otherwise dark day where a fallen hero was mourned.

Argentina midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme has agreed to join Atletico Madrid on a 2 year deal. I suspect that the price was fairly low considering that this was partly about his old side - the Yellow Submarine - getting rid of his contract.

Atletico have done some fantastic business this summer and as our earlier poll showed, this community believes that the Juan Roman deal turns their decision to sell their hero to Liverpool a good one for the club. I just wish they were playing CL this season.
