    Apparently winning La Liga with inspired play down the stretch is not enough for the Real Madrid board as they fired Fabio Capello with 2 years left on his contract.

    I'm a little surprised as they won the a trophy for the first time in four years under his guidance, and at the end of the season they were far fitter and more enthusiastic in their play than they had been in a while.

    But apparently his mishandling of the Beckham situation was all the board needed to make the change.

    To Capello's credit, he openly admitted he made a mistake with Beck's and changed his approach; Beckham turned them into a great team the last half dozen games.

    Is it Beckham's fault?!? Discuss...

    I dont think it has much to do with Beckham. I'd say he just never got along with his players and ever since the rumor he was to be fired was known, they started playing better, thus the firing happening now.
