A Better Lens at Spanish Football

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 […]

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 […]

    Oft they are forgotten and are just a mere side-note in the history books of a La Liga campaign. In Italy, Greece, Argentina, England and Scotland, there are many more too, they are a time when fans smile, clasp their hands together and look forward to getting one over on their bitterest of rivals. In Spain, apart from maybe in Sevilla, derbies seem to go ignored by the Press and some supporters which is a pity. The Galicia […]

    By: Jeeshan Mirza   There is a cliché in North American sports- “Offence wins games, defence wins championships.” A similar idea is paralleled in the writings of Sun Tzu and Machiavelli who had said sometimes success rests on destroying the enemy’s ability to attack. If you were the manager of a club taking on a Valencia team of the late 90’s or early 2000’s this is something that would worry you. You would tell your players “Don’t let […]
