A Better Lens at Spanish Football

        As I’m sure you are all aware, the draw for the group stages of the Champions League has now been made, so it is now that time of year where I look at the La Liga teams’ groups, and make rash predictions!   Real Sociedad La Real qualified for the group stage for the first time in ten years through the playoff, recording impressive 2-0 wins home and away against Olympique Lyonnais. Their reward for finishing fourth […]

  Real Sociedad booked their place in the Uefa Champions League group stages for the first time in ten years after putting Lyon to the sword with another two-nil victory, with two second-half goals from Mexican striker Carlos Vela.   Following on from the 1st leg display in the Stade Gerland last week, it was the away side who did most of the early running, but they very rarely troubled Bravo in the Real Sociedad goal.  Antoine Griezmann had an […]

      Real Sociedad will be going into the 2nd leg of this tie full of confidence after their two-nil win at the Stade Gerland last week. Jagoba Arrasate’s young side surprised a lot of pundits with their comprehensive victory over the seven-time French champions, they played with maturity beyond their years, scoring two magnificent individual efforts through Lyon fan Antoine Griezmann with his magnificent scissor-kick and a second-half, long-range dipping strike from Haris Seferovic to give La Real […]

    Many of us La Liga watchers knew what to expect from La Real in terms of style of play and attacking threat, one thing I was slightly cautious about was the youthful side of the team, but that was put to bed tonight at the Stade Gerland, as two wonderful pieces of technique either side of half-time gave the Basque side a magnificent win and one foot in the group stages.       Real Sociedad came out at […]

        On Tuesday Real Sociedad will embark on a journey to join Real Madrid, Atletico and Barcelona in the group stage draw for the first time in ten-years. Standing in their way is perennial French qualifier Olympique Lyonnais. Both sides have begun their league campaign with Lyon having two wins from two matches and looking quite impressive in their latest showing away at Sochaux, meanwhile Real Sociedad have one from one with their home victory over Getafe […]

Real-Sociedad-vs-Athletic-Bilbao-400x300

        Athletic Bilbao v Real Sociedad (Primera vuelta: 0-2)   The Basque derby takes place with roles reversed from last season: Real are the regional standard bearers, Athletic schlepping along in mid-table with just the faintest of nervous glances over their shoulders at the scrap just beneath them to avoid disaster.   “Even though I am a foreigner you can still feel that this game is different; it is not just any game” declared Marcelo Bielsa when […]

Carlos Vela, Real Sociedad, El Tri, Chepo

    The Other Javier Vela, Vela, Vela, Sigh Too Little Too Late?         The Other Javier Javier Aquino, Cruz Azul and Mexican National Team Midfielder, has signed with Villarreal on a full transfer. Aquino, it should be noted, is a CONCACAF Gold Cup Champion, Pan American Games Champion, Toulon Tournament Champion, and an Olympics Games Champions. He was also a starting midfielder for Cruz Azul and will be sorely missed at the Mexican club.   I […]

Carlos Vela,Vela,Real Sociedad, La Real, La Liga, Forza Futbol

    At the midpoint of the season, I’ve decided to make an assessment of “Los Americanos” in La Liga. I use the term Americanos to describe players from the Americas, and more specifically, players from the Concacaf region.   I’ll start off with the two players that I consider the best CONCACAF representatives in La Liga, Carlos Vela and Andres Guardado.       Vela is La Real, La Real is Vela Valverde’s New Defender         […]

      Around one year ago, Diego Simeone took control of his first home game and first win at Atlético de Madrid. This weekend he took control of his first home game in 2013 and things couldn’t be better for the Madrid club. Even on  a wet, cold and damp Sunday night, the sparkle is still in the eye of every Atleti fan. It has been a great year for Los Rojiblancos and this has VLL thinking at all […]
