A Better Lens at Spanish Football

atletico-madrid-barcelona-2014

    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 […]

REAL SOCIEDAD 11/12  BETIS 11/12

Time to dwell on the teams that occupied the bottom five positions in the top ten before the break. Valencia surprised me the most. Their performances have been far from impressive and before the Christmas break were in ninth.   10) Getafe – Pedro Leon The 27 year-old attacking midfielder has been by far the best player in this Getafe team. The Madrid based club signed him from city-rivals Real Madrid, and I’ve since seen an improvement in his game. […]

      Neymar’s arrival at Barça has been a positive one for the club. He has done a great job in fitting in with the team and has impressed on the pitch. His performance during Messi’s absence even gave the fans a sense of reassurance as the club entered the New Year as league leaders and still in the running for all three competitions. However, Neymar faces a difficult challenge as the second half of the season commences where […]

  ‘Atlético are the kings of Madrid’ ran the headline of AS on Sunday. Granted it was about ten pages into the paper and it came after lots of praise for Real Madrid’s performance against Almeria and despite the fact that it will put some noses out of joint, its true. Atlético have now played all three Madrid sides and won their derbies. Real Madrid have won two, and apart from losing to Atleti in the Bernabeu, they have failed […]

    These are dark times around Sevilla. Neither club has been inspiring in La Liga and both sides have fans that are on the backs of their players. Real Betis finished higher than rivals Sevilla last season but that counts for nothing now as Los Verdiblancos are currently sitting at the foot of the table. Unai Emery was under pressure too but Sevilla finally broke their poor away run this weekend and so he lives to fight another day. […]

Laporte-1

  A strange game this: a side whose game plan didn’t quite work faced one which looked like it didn’t really have one to begin with. The result was an entertainingly open match which nonetheless featured very little in terms of goalmouth action, which suggested that neither side was able to control the game when they didn’t have the ball or put themselves in a good enough position to create when they did. It was a match which hinged on […]

  It says it all when most people say the biggest advantage of going to Getafe is that the car park beside the ground is never full and that there is no traffic going to and from games. Getafe were once the 2nd team of a lot of Spaniards. Those were the days when they played in the UEFA cup and also reached two Copa del Rey finals in a row. President Angel Torres spoke out against racism in Spanish […]

    The Defining Moment Most Valencia fans will not remember Malaga’s 3-0 victory against Zenit in the Spanish team’s first Champions League match on September 2012. In fact most will not want to remember, as this was the first match where Francisco ‘Isco” Alarcon demonstrated his talent to the World. Isco single handedly won the match for Malaga with his magic and wizardry, in the process scoring two goals. Isco’s maturity and sheer genius on the pitch made it […]

    Gary Smith takes a look at the Top 5 Goal Keepers plying their trade in La Liga.  Enjoy!     5.Claudio Bravo   Bravo plays for one of La Liga’s best teams, Real Sociedad and is a great shot-stopper. Bravo also has a 72% success save rate and concedes a rather impressive average of 1.2 goals per game, which is one of the best goal keeper records in La Liga. Has been a consistently good goalie in Spain for […]

        With the start of the 2013-2014 season, we can’t help but stop to consider  one of the best new talents in La Liga.    Haris Seferovic is yet another hidden treasure to emerge this season.   A little background on Seferovic – He first made waves in world football when he took part in the under-17 FIFA world cup of 2009, with Switzerland.  The world cup was  hosted in Nigeria where he emerged as  the top scorer […]
