A Better Lens at Spanish Football

This story started long before the two teams hit the pitch on Friday July 25. A couple months earlier, the announcement of FC Porto pulling out of the International Champions Cup games and being replaced by SL Benfica brought cheers from the fans of one of the largest teams in the world, and jeers from their rivals’ fans as they went to exchange their tickets. Driving into the stadium parking lot, the tailgating was wild and filled with chants; the […]

The New York Red Bulls started a developmental squad against defending Premier League champions Chelsea CF Wednesday night in their International Champions Cup match at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ. It didn’t matter, as four second half goals gave the hosts a 4-2 victory over the champs. The pro-Chelsea crowd didn’t care who started for New York. They weren’t there to support the MLS side. They came to cheer on their champions, players such as John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic […]

Well, elections just came and went and it was no surprise that in the end, Josep Maria Bartomeu was elected to become president of FC Barcelona again. However, even though the club is fresh of the heels of their successful treble campaign from last season, Bartomeu has many challenges that have to be properly dealt with. The first of many challenges facing Bartomeu is that he is currently facing tax fraud charges stemming from the Neymar transfer debacle. The transfer […]

Arda Turan’s signing by Barça is yet another unprofessional and unethical move by Bartomeu of not respecting club rules. His selected Managing Committee exceeded their powers when they signed Arda Turan. The continuous sneaky and blatant disregard of rules has become a pattern with Josep Maria Bartomeu and one only has to fear what lies ahead if he is elected in the upcoming Barça presidential elections. With Barça capturing the treble for an unprecedented second time, it was time for […]

FC Barcelona v Juventus - UEFA Champions League Final

    After a long spell of speculation linking Barcelona and Brazil right back Dani Alves with a move away from Nou Camp, the Catalans were able to secure a longer term for his services. The club posted on its official website that Alves had agreed a two-year contract extension on his career, with the option of an additional year. The 32-year old who joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2008 will now grace the Barcelona colors until 2017 when the […]

What once seemed farfetched became reality when Barça defeated Juventus to capture their second treble in club history. All egos were kept in check and whatever issues or differences that were plaguing this side were put aside for a common goal; success. Consequently, Barça are back as the number one club in the world. As I have stated a few times on here in the past, I am a firm believer in “it’s not how you start, but it’s how […]

  Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has been sidelined from the Spanish football team because of muscle problems. Iniesta will not be playing for Spain during their bouts against Costa Rica and Belarus. However, he started in Barcelona’s Champions League final and was instrumental over the win against Juventus. Now, Iniesta will sadly miss out on Spain’s European championship qualifier  when they play against Belarus, thus possibly impacting the number of free bets on his upcoming matches. According to a national team representative, […]

Summer is around the corner and both Barça and Madrid will be heading overseas for their preseason summer tour.

On April 29, 2015, Relevent Sports revealed the teams that will feature in the upcoming International Champions Cup this summer. Real Madrid will travel to Australia for two friendlies in Melbourne, while Barça will return to the United States for […]

It was interesting when Luis Figo announced his candidacy to run for FIFA president before withdrawing right before the elections. At first, the idea that this guy wanting to run for FIFA president seemed absurd. Then it hit me; he seemed perfect for the role of FIFA president. His career has been full of lies and shady deals in his pursuit of wealth and happiness. Without a doubt, Figo had the current qualities to be the next FIFA president. Utter […]

Carlo Ancelotti was relieved of his duties last week, the news hit the public officially on Monday when club President Florentino Perez revealed that he, along with the board of directors, decided to fire the La Decima winning coach. If you look at the decision on its own, well, Real Madrid won nothing this season and the coach gets canned – that is the normal course of action for a big club. But on the face of it, Perez’s poor choice […]
