A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Spain

    World Cup 2014 was a train wreck for La Roja. The defending champions were embarrassed by Holland in the opening match and never recovered from that sucker punch that knocked the wind out of their sails and saw them exit the World Cup after just 3 matches. Many were ready to announce La Roja’s era was over however those talks are premature. Spain has been defeated but not beaten and the talented youth players for Spain ensure a […]

    Casillas, Ramos and Modric had just arrived a few days before and were out of form.  Cristiano was in route to LA the day of the game.  Arbeloa and Alonso both stayed in LA for precautionary measures as they did not complete training on Thursday night.  Plus plenty of  Real Madrid’s World Cup stars who advanced into the knockout rounds were missing.  So it was a skeleton squad entering into the Berkeley match. Bale, Carvajal, Isco, Illarra, Diego […]

    New FC Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is wasting little time putting his stamp on the squad at Camp Nou. A number of players have been signed, whilst a few have inevitably been shown the door. The question is: how is the squad looking now, with still a few weeks until the season starts, and a few deals still likely to be done? Well, firstly, the goalkeepers. We all knew for months that Victor Valdes wasn’t renewing his contract […]

Messi vs Valencia

        The season started with no Champions League football while Serbian James Bond Djukic replaced Ernesto Valverde with the motto “Valencia is a sleeping giant who I intend to wake”. Valencia fans were obviously not sure whether this is the giant they were looking for as the season progressed. The season was full of uncertainty both on the pitch and off the pitch. Djukic was only good at creating a complete mess.  Every match was a horror […]
