How bad have things been going for Real Madrid lately? Well, their team bus can't even park outside the team's hotel before a Champions League match in their own city without getting a ticket.
The bus was waiting for the team to come out of the hotel and depart for the Bernabeu for their Champions League group-stage opener against Man City and while it sat there, a parking enforcement worker wrote out a ticket in front of the gathered press and stuck it under a windshield wiper. The team eventually boarded and left for the stadium, but the woman who wrote the ticket had to be a plant sent in by Man City. Noel Gallagher had to be behind this.
Somewhere Xavi is saying, "Why can't they get a fine when they park the bus against us?"
