    The new season starts on the 18th of August and it will end on and will end on 1st June 2013.. No fixtures have been announced yet.

    Got a feeling this will be a very close title race. I feel like Barca have the stronger starting 11 but Real Madrid have the better squad at the moment anyway. Plenty of time for new signings. The Spanish Super Cup will give us a good indication of where both Barca and Real are.

    Who do you think will come out on top this year?

    I didn't know there was a La Liga mega thread. There was one for the 11/12 season.

    Between the the two again but I don't think the super cup will decide who has the better squad. Barca still need a new cb.

    Its a shame that Valencia are continually robbed of great players for heehaw.

    Villa, Alba, Mata and Silva have left them for only around £92million. When you consider Madrid spent £56?million for Kaka.

    Ahh right, that must be the one I'm thinking of :50: Was just curious because I enjoy the Serie A one and wasn't sure if we'd have to start a new one for that or just carry it on :50:

    Tottenham star Luka Modric has agreed terms with Real Madrid and could soon finalise a move to the Spanish side despite the clubs being unable to settle on a fee so far, according to Croatian website 24sata.hr.

    Good signing for them depending on how much they have to be. I wonder if anyone will be going the other way.

    It looks like Bielsa was looking for a excuse to leave. He'll probably go to Italy now.

    i reckon madrid will win it again. leagues arent won by teams, but by squads, and no doubt reals is stronger than barcas.

    Utter pish news about Bielsa :38:

    I think Real will take the league, while Barca will take the Champions League back. I think it will be another big year for Athletico Madrid. First full season for Simeone in charge. If they could add another couple of class players, they will be up there at the top for most of the season. Malaga as well perhaps

    That's what I think.

    Barcelona are starting to close the gap in terms of strength and depth though.

    disagree. the only department that they have plenty of cover for in centre mid. they have only two reliable goal scorers which isnt enough for a side looking to win everything all season, ok one is messi but he can sill break a leg. and in defence there just isnt the cover at all, in any position.

    the only way i can see barca winning the title is if either the next puyol breaks into the side or if vilanova spends some serious cash to improve the squad.
