Are we bovv'rd?
By Chris Charles

Lauren from the Catherine Tate Show
Fill in your own catchphrase

Take a look at the Spanish league table and you could be forgiven for thinking you'd just walked into a comedy sketch.

It's not apparent at first, but study the top six teams in La Liga for long enough and it suddenly jumps out at you.

Barcelona, Osasuna, Valencia, Villareal, Real Madrid, Deportivo.

So that's where Catherine Tate got her inspiration from.

One thing's for sure, if it stays like that until the end of the season, Real Madrid will be in big bovver.

On the same theme, if you take a look at last season's final Premiership table you will notice the first letter from the top five sides - Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton and Liverpool - spells out the name of a well-known desert animal.

Sadly it looks like we're heading for a similar result again this season - Chelsea win the title and everyone else gets the hump.
