  Barça’s trip to Madrid under first year manager Luis Enrique was a nightmare for both team and manager. Mistakes in tactics and his reaction in the aftermath has some Blaugrana fans concerned about the team’s future. The good news is that Barça is still in first place but the question is for how long? Luis Enrique’s first visit to the Santiago Bernabéu as a Barça manager made for great stories. However, his past was irrelevant since he managed at […]

Eyebrows were raised when the Valencia hierarchy surprisingly dismissed Pizzi at the end of last season; the Argentine had done a solid, if not spectacular job after stepping into the Mestalla hot seat in December. Consequently leading the out-of-form side to a modest eighth-place finish. It was the first time in 16 years that the club had failed to qualify for European competition. The summer was a strangely exciting one for the club, backed by Singaporean businessman Peter Lim and […]

  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 […]

The gap is only 6 points now

  El Clásico is upon us once again and since we’re nearing the final stretch of the season, it means more of these clashes are possibly around the corner. The Copa del Rey final is definitely on the books but if the eternal enemies do not meet in European competition, then for some of the core veterans of the Blaugrana, this will be their last ever visit to the Santiago Bernabéu in this sort of fixture. Furthermore, this could be […]

    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 […]

    Currently behind Barcelona in the table on goal difference, Atletico Madrid look like they’re posing a genuine threat to the big two in La Liga this season. However, with their astonishing success over the past couple of years under manager Diego Simeone, some of the richer clubs throughout Europe have cast a few admiring glances towards their star performers. Despite selling Radamel Falcao for big money to Monaco in the summer, it’s likely that Los Rojiblancos will have […]

  It’s been a bizarre first half to the season in La Liga. After 20 rounds of action, we’re seeing the most competitive top three in 32 seasons, as Barcelona’s draw at Levante and Atletico Madrid’s stalemate against Sevilla – allowed Real Madrid to close the gap on the leading two to only a point. In the centre of the table, it’s likely to be a battle until the very end for the final Uefa Champions League spot, as only […]

  Spanish football has always been known for its creative midfielders, and when one generation comes to an end, the league produces more gifted players. Admittedly they aren’t always Spanish nationals, however in my top five midfielders so far this season – which isn’t in any particular order – three Spaniards are included, one Argentine and a Croatian, who in my opinion has been the most impressive out of the lot.   Koke – Atletico Madrid In arguably the best […]

    Tears were shed. It was for the best, everyone knew that but still it hurt. Glorious nights, heroic efforts and memories that would never die were embedded all over the place but it was time to move. The truth is the move wasn’t that far at all but still Athletic Club de Bilbao fans were a little worried about moving ground. Would it ever be the same again? The  ground was named after a saint that was fed […]

  ‘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 […]
