A Better Lens at Spanish Football


Pedro is no longer a Barça player. The player that no one expected to amount to much leaves Barça as a legend. The player from the Canary Islands that exceeded everyone’s expectations. Not many were aware of Pedro back in the summer of 2008. Pep Guardiola was in charge of the first team and had called up Barça B players to be part of the summer preseason and although Busquets turned out to be the revelation from La Masia, Pedro […]

The New York Red Bulls started a developmental squad against defending Premier League champions Chelsea CF Wednesday night in their International Champions Cup match at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ. It didn’t matter, as four second half goals gave the hosts a 4-2 victory over the champs. The pro-Chelsea crowd didn’t care who started for New York. They weren’t there to support the MLS side. They came to cheer on their champions, players such as John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic […]

Many thought that Vicente del Bosque would step down after that disappointing World Cup where the defending champions exited without qualifying from the group stage. […]

  This week looking at Spaniards abroad, it was challenging finding a Spanish player this time who stood out among his peers. David Silva has been in excellent form for Manchester City recently. Manchester City traveled to London Saturday to take on the League leaders, Chelsea. The defending champions have been finding life difficult at the moment with Yaya Toure playing in the Africa Cup. The last few weeks City has been dropping points where they would usually win all […]

He looked a pale shadow of his former self, unhappy, out of form and devoid of hunger. That is just some of the ways in which you could describe Fernando Torres’ career since his £50 million move from Liverpool to Chelsea. Even when he finally departed Stamford Bridge to join Milan, he didn’t look like a man who really wanted to be in Italy. Torres scored a total of 21 goals between his time at Chelsea and Milan, but more […]

La Liga has found itself in another ridiculous situation when it comes to players’ lack of self-control and the league’s failure to properly discipline them. If the league wants to set an example by punishing players, then they need to wake up and revamp its disciplinary committee. January saw the return of La Liga football after the winter break and we already have seen some players commit terrible acts on the pitch that are worthy of a lengthy ban. Yet, […]

It’s no secret that the current FC Barcelona board is not highly popular among the FC Barcelona fans at this moment. Out of all the directors and members of this administration, Zubizarreta stands out as one of the most disliked figureheads at this club. Zubizaretta’s tenure as Sporting Director at this club will go down as one who has been ridiculed on social media for his inept handling of his position. The thought he will remain with this club till […]

With only a handful of matches with the Spanish national team, is it time for Vicente Del Bosque to end the Diego Costa experiment? There clearly is a clash of styles and one has to wonder if Costa’ presence is a hindrance on the team as they plan on getting over their recent World Cup fiasco. Diego Costa is a dangerous forward that many teams would be lucky to have. He commands the attention of opposing team defenders and is […]
