Back in April, FC Barcelona  displayed a huge banner in the Camp Nou prior to a league match kickoff that read “La Masia No Se Toca” which meant, La Masia is not to be touched. However, those words may have fallen on deaf ears under this regime. With the Montoya fiasco, following the Thiago fiasco, one has to wonder if the La Masia players wonder if their future lies elsewhere. It’s been a difficult time for Barça fans what with […]

  Titi Henry bids farewell to the world of football. As a former Barça player, his time with the club will be fondly remembered as one of those class players who helped shape the club into becoming one of the greatest of sides of all time. When FC Barcelona signed Thierry Henry, his unveiling at the Camp Nou attracted the masses. After a bumpy first season, which would be Frank Rijkaard’s final season as Barça manager, Henry would help Barça […]

The three remaining La Liga sides found out their fate in the last-16 draw for the Champions League on Monday afternoon. To be fair, all three will be reasonably confident of making the last eight, as the league will be hoping for maximum exposure and a repeat of the all-Spanish final in Lisbon in May. The first tie will be a repeat of last season, as Real Madrid will take on Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke side. Ancelotti’s men will be […]

  This week looking at Spaniards abroad we look at a club in north west England at Stoke City where Bojan Krkic is beginning to find a run of form recently.

It’s no secret that the current FC Barcelona board is not highly popular among the FC Barcelona fans at this moment. Out of all the directors and members of this administration, Zubizarreta stands out as one of the most disliked figureheads at this club. Zubizaretta’s tenure as Sporting Director at this club will go down as one who has been ridiculed on social media for his inept handling of his position. The thought he will remain with this club till […]

The Rojiblancos booked their place into the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League Wednesday night in Madrid. As mentioned in a piece earlier this week Atletico Madrid were on a mission of “revenge.” Well hang up the banners for this week as the Colchoneros steam rolled Olympiakos 4-0. Wednesday evening’s match at the Estadio Vicente Calderon began with Atletico pressing high up the pitch. The first two goals did in fact come from rather awful defensive mistakes by […]

  A week ago, there was panic in Barcelona over the comments made by Messi and his father about his future with Barça. A week later, we are celebrating Messi becoming the all-time goal scorer in Spanish league history and UEFA Champions League history. It has been all smiles for Messi but the question remains; will there be an inevitable divorce between Barça and Messi? History has shown that it is likely. First of all off, congratulations to Messi on […]
