A Better Lens at Spanish Football


  If any other team in Europe would allow their two most important midfielders to leave, they’d struggle to pick themselves up for the new season, but it seems both Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso were surplus to requirements at Real Madrid. Lets start with Di Maria. The Argentine completed his €75million move to Manchester United to become the most expensive transfer in the history of English football and the most expensive sale in Real Madrid’s history. El Fideo […]

  Both of Madrid’s biggest clubs are at loggerheads as the season reaches its dying embers.  Not only are they fighting along with Barcelona for the La Liga title, now they will end the season going head-to-head in the biggest club game in European football in Benfica’s Stadium of Light on May 24th. In the end, it was all too easy as Madrid thrashed Bayern and ended their hopes of back-to-back European titles. Atleti booked their place in the final […]

  La Decima is potentially just 180 minutes away, it would end a 12-year wait for the Real Madrid fans and lift a massive weight off the shoulders of the manager Carlo Ancelotti and his group of players.  First, they must get past the holders and their Catalan coach Pep Guardiola, who will no doubt be left smarting after his side’s loss at the Bernabeu, doubly so with it being his first personal loss at the home of Real Madrid […]

  After yesterday’s boring 0-0 draw at the Vicente Calderon between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, the Champions League returns with one of Europe’s juiciest draws – defending champion Bayern Munich against 9-time winner Real Madrid.   This isn’t just a matchup between two big clubs. This is a semifinal tie between two of the most successful teams in the European game. Spanish paper Marca called it the ‘Clasico de Europa’ and they couldn’t be more spot on.   It’s the […]

    Having had the weekend off, Real now face the moment they’ve been building up to. La Decima is tantalisingly close: to bring it even closer all they have to do is conquer Bayern’s relentless side. And Pep Guardiola. Despite the extra time, there’s no doubt which side will have had the more meticulous preparation. Guardiola was unbeaten at the Bernabeu in his four years at the helm with Barcelona and we all know he’ll have spent the last […]

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has revealed he held a brief meeting with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez when mulling over where to move at the end of this season. The Polish star made the decision to join a number of Dortmund stars to have made the move to rivals Bayern Munich, but the striker has admitted to holding initial talks about a possible switch to the La Liga giants.   When it became clear the Poland international wouldn’t be […]

  This summer will be one of the most important in FC Barcelona’s recent history. From the manager to the squad, we could see some huge upheaval at Camp Nou.   Manager – Tata in Tatters? Gerardo “Tata” Martino has been under intense pressure – a lot of it unfair and unwarranted – since he took the job last summer. He has set records at the start of the season, while also beating Real Madrid home and away to reignite […]

  Friday sees the draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League take place. La Liga has most participants of course, with Atletico, Real Madrid and Barcelona in the hat. They are joined by reigning champions Bayern Munich and their Spanish coach Pep Guardiola, Borussia Dortmund, the finalists of last year, Paris St Germain with ex-Barca man Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the attack. The other two sides that make the line-up are a floundering Manchester United side and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea. […]

    I’m typing this while watching Martin Demichelis’ career fall apart. The question is whether observers are right to draw conclusions about the comparative demands of La Liga and the English Premier League from the Argentinian’s torture. What I’m watching is Manchester City’s FA Cup quarter final with Wigan Athletic, and as you might have gathered, it isn’t going well for the billionaire home team. The visitors, despite being a division lower than their hosts, are 2-0 up and […]

    Five trophies won in one season, conquering Europe and returning to the summit of club football – surely the flawless Bayern Munich couldn’t improve further? On 16th January 2013, manager-less Munich confirmed that Pep Guardiola would come out of his managerial sabbatical, and would become the new manager of the club. It was a move that shook the world, Chelsea were after him, Manchester City were after him, but why did he choose a club that seemingly couldn’t […]
