Well, there we have it. It could have been the second all-Spanish Champions League final in succession, but only one of Spain’s big two will be representing La Liga in Berlin on June 6. Barcelona safely negotiated their passage through to their first Champions League final since winning the trophy at Wembley four years ago. Despite going behind to Mehdi Benatia’s early header, it only took Barca and Neymar eight minutes to end hope of any Bayern comeback. Neymar added […]

FC Barcelona survived another difficult test and found themselves en route towards a magical season. The magic of Messi is a big reason why. The battle between Bayern and Barça was supposed to be a battle of wits between Pep and his friend Lucho. This was supposed to be the fight of the year; two heavyweights going at each other for a shot at the Champions League title shot. However, the fight was decided by a late TKO from Messi. […]

With the season heading towards to a superb finish, Barça’s magical season is entering the final stretch. With the domestic double still in their favor, Bayern are the only side standing in their way of a Champions League final. Can you believe it’s May already? Feels like yesterday when Luis Enrique took over Barça and had them go through some highs and lows. The lowest of all lows, came in early January and since then, Barça have been a different side. […]

He looked pretty happy to me.

  Wednesday. Real Madrid vs Almeria. 84 minutes played, Javier Hernandez flashed in a cross, with Alvaro Arbeloa and Cristiano Ronaldo lurking at the back post. Arbeloa beat Ronaldo to it, scored, it was the third for Madrid on the night. But then, then, social media erupted calling Ronaldo a “cry-baby”, an “awful teammate” and a “very dislikable footballer”. Jesus Christ! Here we go again. Throughout his career, Cristiano Ronaldo is a man who has defied footballing and athletic norms: […]

  He was the only logical winner. Only severe injustice could have robbed Cristiano Ronaldo of world’s greatest footballer crown. After a memorable and record breaking year, Portugal, Real Madrid and the world’s finest retained the most prestigious trophy for any footballing individual, Cristiano won the Ballon d’Or [ahead of Lionel Messi], for the second consecutive year [a career third].

Back in April, FC Barcelona  displayed a huge banner in the Camp Nou prior to a league match kickoff that read “La Masia No Se Toca” which meant, La Masia is not to be touched. However, those words may have fallen on deaf ears under this regime. With the Montoya fiasco, following the Thiago fiasco, one has to wonder if the La Masia players wonder if their future lies elsewhere. It’s been a difficult time for Barça fans what with […]
