A Better Lens at Spanish Football

      And so Atlético de Madrid won the league and how. It was an amazing achievement and VLL will talk all about it in the end of season awards but there was another huge achievement this season down in the south of Spain. Sevilla are no strangers to cup glory but the last few seasons have seen off the field drama make the headlines rather than actions on the pitch. Like many other La Liga club they have […]

  The season is drawing to a close, with only one round of fixtures left. This season for many La Liga watchers has been the best season in recent history. That being said, I felt it would be an appropriate time to pick my own best eleven from the league season.   Goalkeeper: Keylor Navas (Levante) Despite Levante having a -7 goal difference the Costa Rican has been in magnificent form amassing a superb 16 clean sheets. If it wasn’t […]

    The writing was on the wall. This game always upsets some one but everyone seemed to have ignored that little fact. In 2o11 Málaga came to the Vicente Calderon needing a win to stay up but Atlético were playing for a European place. Málaga hammered Atlético by three goals to nil. Atleti would qualify for the Europa League that year but only with a little help from Real Madrid. Málaga stayed up and went on a shopping spree. […]

    After 37 matches, the league crown will be decided this Saturday in Barcelona between Barça and Atlético Madrid. The gunfight at the Camp Nou will take place at high noon for these two gunslingers. Both teams have had their ups and downs but managed to stay in the hunt till now. Just like every classic Western showdown however, there can only man left standings. Will it be Barça or will it be Atlético? Christmas is the season of […]

  So Diego Costa might move to Chelsea in the summer. Big deal. Atletico can handle that. But losing Thibault Courtois at the same time? That might be a very different matter, perhaps even a matter grave enough to make Diego Simeone look carefully at whether he wants to hang around too. It seems Jose Mourinho just can’t stop damaging Madrid’s football clubs.   Atletico’s ability to regenerate up front is one of the natural wonders of football. The line […]

  Both of Madrid’s biggest clubs are at loggerheads as the season reaches its dying embers.  Not only are they fighting along with Barcelona for the La Liga title, now they will end the season going head-to-head in the biggest club game in European football in Benfica’s Stadium of Light on May 24th. In the end, it was all too easy as Madrid thrashed Bayern and ended their hopes of back-to-back European titles. Atleti booked their place in the final […]

    The Dani Alves banana incident is still fresh in everyone’s minds following the great reaction through the social media. Sadly, posting a photo on Instagram is not enough. La Liga got another awful reminder today when some Atlético fans made monkey chants towards Levante’s African player, Diop, today. Diop danced like a monkey to mock them back. La Liga cannot afford to tap dance its way around this issue anymore and must deal with clubs severely. Back in […]

  Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in the return-leg of the Uefa Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night, with the tie finely poised at 0-0.  If one likes betting on Champions League matches, this is a hard one to predict. Jose Mourinho’s side were accused of playing ‘anti-football’ against their Spanish opponents last week, after putting on a completely defensive performance. Chelsea never looked like troubling Thibaut Courtois as the away side only managed to have five shots on goal. On […]

    Xavi Herández boarded the team bus and went straight to the back. Head down and a glum expression he didn’t acknowledge any of the hundred or so Barca fans that had been calling his name as he walked out of the ground and on to the bus. Still they tried to get his attention as he sat waiting for his team-mates to join him so he could leave and forget a match where he was almost invisible. So […]
