    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 […]

  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 […]

Real-Madrid-vs-Atletico-Madrid-Copa-del-Rey-1

  The past week could be pivotal, the fortunes of the two biggest Madrid sides could may well have taken a dramatic twist. The 3-0 first leg victory for Real Madrid in the Copa was a bit of a shock – not that Madrid managed to win, just the margin of the win. Even though it was a hard-fought win for Ancelotti’s troops, Madrid looked like they were the only team in the match who turned up to play football […]

  Now let’s concentrate on the sides that occupied the top five positions before the Christmas break. La Liga has seen the most competitive top three in 32 years, with Atletico Madrid battling the usual championship favourites Barcelona and Real Madrid.     5) Villarreal – Giovani dos Santos One of the most impressive players of La Liga before the break was dos Santos. Again, readers may feel that with his 12 league goals Ikechukwu Uche should pip the Mexican […]

    Juan Carlos Garrido walked out of departures and thought he was in the clear. On one side of the door there was a young man leaning against the wall. Suddenly as Garrido passed the man sprung up and started to follow the Betis Coach. ‘You only came to rob us’ and ‘Things were better before you’ are amongst some of the things that he screamed at the former Villarreal Coach. Garrido sped up and left the airport but […]

  The goalkeeping situation within the dressing room at Los Blancos has been a subject for some debate over the past year. Pundits, fans and others have all had their say about Iker Casillas and how he lost his place to now number one Diego Lopez. It all dates back to Capello being in charge in his second spell. The Italian preferred Diego Lopez because of certain situations, mainly Lopez superior height,  a fan backlash also that by this time […]

  The defensive midfield position has become one of the most important positions on the park. It mostly came to prominence in modern football when former Real Madrid man Claude Makalele made it sort of his own and it became important when he as the ‘water carrier’ who did all the dirty work which allowed at the time, Real Madrid’s fantastic array of attacking options to flourish. I’m going to take a look at a few of the best, currently […]

    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 […]

  Just like my last article on Napoli and their Spanish/La Liga revolution, Fiorentina are another club in Serie A who seem to be buying from La Liga and the Spanish nationals route. Italy and Serie A in particular has been somewhat of a graveyard for Spanish players in recent years, the Valencia side of the early 2000′s that got broken up after two Champions League finals in a row, they didn’t succeed in Serie A at all. Gaizka Mendieta […]

    It was seen as a fresh start for all and we were supposed to have turned a corner. After 17 El Clasicos, that saw most of the talking points taking place off the pitch, that were all bunched together, we had to wait 8 months for the next installment. We were told that lessons had been learned. No longer would Press comments overshadow a game that saw some great football become a mere sidenote. It would be the […]
