A Better Lens at Spanish Football


David Moyes is the man who has been given an 18-month reign at Anoeta replacing the hapless Jagoba Arrasate in the managerial hot seat. La Real are not new to hiring British coaches they have already appointed Harry Lowe an Englishman for five seasons in the 1930s, John Toshack on three different occasions, and more recently current Wales boss Chris Coleman, whose time in San Sebastian didn’t end on the best of notes. Moyes who has pitched up in the […]

  Real Sociedad stunned Real Madrid at the Anoeta Stadium, as they secured a 4-2 victory having been 0-2 down. The away side started very brightly and were playing incredible football. Luka Modric made a positive run before his dangerous cross was headed for a corner. From the resulting corner, Toni Kroos whipped in a cracking cross that was met by Sergio Ramos to score with a header, and it took just six minutes. Moments later it could have got […]

  Real Sociedad’s reward for their seventh-place finish is a first-leg home match as they take on last season’s League Cup winners and the team who finished third in the SPFL Scottish Premiership, Aberdeen. Jagoba Arrasate will be ready as his side welcomes the Scots to the Anoeta for the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round match. Their side will be considerably weakened as they prepare for the trip to the north of Scotland. Antoine Griezmann and […]

Time to dwell on the teams that occupied the bottom five positions in the top ten before the break. Valencia surprised me the most. Their performances have been far from impressive and before the Christmas break were in ninth.   10) Getafe – Pedro Leon The 27 year-old attacking midfielder has been by far the best player in this Getafe team. The Madrid based club signed him from city-rivals Real Madrid, and I’ve since seen an improvement in his game. […]

  Real’s Champions League adventure has proven to be more trauma than delight, their youthful side swept aside by more experienced continental performers. Bottom of the table, their ambitions are limited to tilting at a Europa League place as they travel to the Ukraine for the first time, but if they’re going to pull off a shock, this might be just the time to achieve it. Shakhtar have not been quite as consistent this season as usual, and they come […]

    Real Sociedad’s European dream is looking near to death, and having gone to Old Trafford in the last round knowing that the English giants were wobbling, their failure to grasp the opportunity to spring a surprise looks to have been terminal to their continental ambitions.

      With their backs to the wall in Europe and hardly having started the domestic season like a house on fire, Real Sociedad fans would be forgiven for suffering from an overwhelming sense of ennui at the moment.   But every crisis is an opportunity. A double header against Manchester United might look like the graveyard of Real’s dreams – even the rather pale fantasy of sneaking into the Europa League via the back door – but it […]
