From Goal.com: A board meeting that was supposed to take place on Monday was postponed due to the celebrations of Real Madrid's basketball win over Barcelona. However, the meeting will take place tomorrow, during which Pedja Mijatovic will present a detailed report of all that has transpired over the last nine months. Spanish daily AS insist that there is absolutely no chance of Capello staying on, and that an announcement will be made after the meeting. It is understood that most in the board back Calderon, and have refused to be blinded by what even they consider to be a rather fortuitous La Liga win. The general consensus seems to be that there have been some massive problems, as much with Capello's style of management, those that have been covered by Barcelona and Sevilla allowing them into the title race. That he is single-handedly responsible for the exits of Ronaldo and David Beckham, both of whom have hit top form since January, is hardly helping Don Fabio's cause. The board seem to believe that the two were scapegoated for Madrid's, and in fact Capello's failures. Also, contrary to Capello's claims yesterday, he will receive compensation for only one of his remaining two years. The meeting will also decide on how much time Bernd Schuster will be allowed to find his way out of Getafe. It is understood that he will hasten his exit the moment Capello is sacked, but Madrid do not want to wait for long.
