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 […]

    Back from Mestalla and I sit here before my screen in a dark room. What can I write that would convey the great rush of adrenaline I felt today. How can I replicate with words the joy and utter happiness I felt in Mestalla today for 94 minutes. There are no words to convey that pureness of bliss that one feels in their seat in Mestalla.   There are no words to express the love I felt for […]

sevilla-valencia-europa-league-360x200

  Valencia will be hoping their continental luck can strike twice when they face off Thursday against Sevilla in the Europa League semifinal second leg at the Mestalla.   Los Che lost their quarter final first leg to Basel 3-0 in Switzerland before putting five goals past the Swiss in the return leg at the Mestalla.   They’re now facing a 2-0 hole. Can history repeat itself?   The first match against Sevilla was a case of bad luck for […]

  When you get three teams virtually level at such a late stage of the season, it’s tempting to let your mind wander to what might be and fantasise about an incredible final round where all things are still possible. That rarely happens though, as one or two sides usually fall by the wayside in these situations. The selection might even be made as soon as this Wednesday, because the trio of fixtures the title contenders face are fascinating. Intriguingly, […]

    For days the fate of the encounter between Dynamo Kiev and Valencia CF has been pushed to the front of the papers here in Valencia. The escalation of violence in the city has put the Valencian side in a panic, fearing for the safety of the players and club followers, who would undoubtedly follow the club to the very ends of the earth regardless of their personal welfare. The encounter was due to be played in a stadium […]

  There was a huge mistake in the organisation. Usually the away fans were placed in a corner away from the home fans and separated by barriers or police but someone really dropped the ball this time and so there were thousands of visiting fans just a few rows behind the regular supporters. Earlier, outside the ground as they walked to the stadium the travelling legion were attacked and they retaliated. Police were on the receiving end of thrown bottles […]

LOGO COPA DEL REY

      This week sees the conclusion of the Copa Del Rey semi finals, as last season’s top four clubs face off for the opportunity to contest the final. Well, I say contest. Both ties are pretty much done and dusted after last week’s first leg encounters. Tuesday – Madrid Derby Atletico have the more difficult task, after losing the first leg in Estadio Bernabeu 3-0 in a rather inept performance that has belied their achievements so far this […]

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. […]

    Outside they knew before those inside. In a little office where the press passes where being handed out, journalists all squeezed in to see the TV up on the wall. Outside they watched too, with faces pressed against the glass doors, all desperate to get a glimpse. The most important thing of all was in the top left hand corner and it was all anyone was looking at. In bars people were hanging around, glued to the screens. […]
