Real Madrid 3-0 Eibar There wasn’t a shock at the Bernabeu on Saturday as Real Madrid scored three to cruise past fourteenth placed Eibar. Having had his yellow card from the previous game rescinded, it meant Cristiano Ronaldo could start, and it was he who opened up the scoring with a rare free-kick. It was fairly all one way traffic in the Spanish capital, and even with Toni Kroos unavailable [suspension], the midfield looked capable enough to allow Madrid to […]

Atletico Madrid humiliated Real Madrid at the Estadio Vicente Calderon, beating the current league leaders 4-0. The home side ran riot with goals from Tiago, Saul Niguez, Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were mere spectators. The last time Real Madrid lost at the Calderon in the league was June 12th 1999, and hadn’t lost three straight games (in all competitions) at the ground in the last 64 years. Surely Atleti would fear their mega-rich […]

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 […]

  Last year when the Derbi Madrileno was played in the Copa del Rey tie Real Madrid emerged the victor and with some ease too defeating the Colchoneros 5-0 on aggregate. This time in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey los Rojiblancos exacted a sort of revenge that could be best described by a Guy Ritchie character from his film “Snatch.” Alan Ford’s character “Brick Top”  had a  very popular monologue, “do you know what Nemesis means? A […]

  Atletico Madrid continued their recent dominance over city rivals Real Madrid by knocking the defending champions out of the Copa Del Rey. Diego Simeone again got the better of Carlo Ancelotti as Fernando Torres scored a brace at the Bernabeu to give his team a 2-2 draw on the night (winning 4-2 on aggregate). Ancelotti demanded that the Madridistas created a hostile atmosphere for the game, it was created, helped by the presentation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Ballon d’Or, but the […]

Fernando Torres returned to the place where it all started, but El Nino’s return was overshadowed by Diego Simeone’s wizadry as Atleti defeated Real Madrid 2-0 in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey last 16 clash. Both goals came in the second half as Raul Garcia scored from the spot and later Jose Gimenez’ header doubled the lead from a corner kick. Both managers decided to make notable changes to their starting lineup, Simeone left out Koke, Arda Turan, Miranda […]

The prodigal son, Fernando Torres, has returned to Madrid and the club from which he grew up following and playing at, Atletico Madrid. Fernando Torres left Atletico Madrid in July of 2007 for Liverpool FC. When El Nino was at the Rojiblancos back from 2001 through to 2007 he tallied 82 goals for Atleti in 214 appearances. Much like the biblical story the prodigal son, when Torres left Spain for England in the summer of 2007 he brought his fantastic […]

      So much has changed in terms of the average lifestyle in recent years, and especially since the turn of the new millennium. Some aspects of the modern world seem so everyday to us now, but only 15 or so years ago, these same activities and abilities would have seemed light-years away, and some mere impossibilities.     A different world In terms of the web, we can now order anything from around the world, watch anything we […]

  The much criticized and once prolific Spanish number “9″ finally made his Italian Serie A debut for the Rossoneri on Tuesday against Empoli. AC Milan would suffer a massive set back inside the first 21 minutes of the match in Tuscany. Goals by Lorenzo Tonelli and Manuel Pucciarelli had put Empoli ahead 2-0. “Il Diavolo” would go into halftime with a rather important lifeline coming from a player many have thought to be “beyond damaged goods.” Fernando Torres went […]

  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 […]
