A Better Lens at Spanish Football

  Ter Stegen is Barça’s new keeper after his signing was completed last week. He comes in as the new number one keeper after both Victor Valdés and Pinto exit the club. The young German is entrusted as the new man in the box which will be no easy task. Ter Stegen is walking into a jungle where he has to combat history along with comparisons to the legend Valdés and his contemporary Courtois. After a decade of service, Barça […]

  So Diego Costa might move to Chelsea in the summer. Big deal. Atletico can handle that. But losing Thibault Courtois at the same time? That might be a very different matter, perhaps even a matter grave enough to make Diego Simeone look carefully at whether he wants to hang around too. It seems Jose Mourinho just can’t stop damaging Madrid’s football clubs.   Atletico’s ability to regenerate up front is one of the natural wonders of football. The line […]

  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 […]

  Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in the return-leg of the Uefa Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night, with the tie finely poised at 0-0.  If one likes betting on Champions League matches, this is a hard one to predict. Jose Mourinho’s side were accused of playing ‘anti-football’ against their Spanish opponents last week, after putting on a completely defensive performance. Chelsea never looked like troubling Thibaut Courtois as the away side only managed to have five shots on goal. On […]

    Atletico Madrid face Chelsea on Tuesday night in the first leg of their semi-final encounter in the Uefa Champions League. Diego Simeone’s team have been a revelation this season as they currently sit top of La Liga, and are only three wins away from their first league title since the 1995-96 campaign. Atletico’s opponents have been battling for league supremacy however fortunately for Simeone, Jose Mourinho’s side are showing cracks which could favour the Madrid based side. In […]

  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. […]

  And then it happened. After months of speculation, after some events that were described as underhanded, Diego Costa pulled on the Spanish jersey and made his debut after months of problems and arguments. Like Costa himself, the situation was anything but easy. The whole debacle has dragged out far longer than anyone would have liked. The Brazilian born forward made two appearances for Brazil and looked set to be regular for Scolari but Brazil has an abundance in forwards […]

    Currently behind Barcelona in the table on goal difference, Atletico Madrid look like they’re posing a genuine threat to the big two in La Liga this season. However, with their astonishing success over the past couple of years under manager Diego Simeone, some of the richer clubs throughout Europe have cast a few admiring glances towards their star performers. Despite selling Radamel Falcao for big money to Monaco in the summer, it’s likely that Los Rojiblancos will have […]

    As 2012 drew to a close, Barca fans were quick to open their new calendars and chuck the old one in the bin. The club did win the Copa del Rey but they lost the league to bitter rivals Real Madrid and were knocked out of the Champions League at home against Chelsea. Images of the players in the dressing room after the tie showed the hurt that was felt as they had wanted to give Pep Guardiola […]

    On October 29, 2013, FIFA released the names of the candidates for the FIFA World Coach of the Year. Upon further review however, there was a head scratcher or two when the names were released. Where was the love for Diego Simeone and Tito Vilanova? Surely they deserved to be on the shortlist over some of their counterparts.   Per FIFA’s official website, the candidates for World Coach of the Year award were Carlo Ancelotti, Rafael Benítez, Antonio […]
