A Better Lens at Spanish Football


  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 […]

  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 […]

  This summer Spain will be looking to become the first nation to win back-to-back World Cup title since 1962. World Cup betting tips are suggesting that Vicente Del Bosque’s men have every chance in Brazil.   However, despite this, four years after winning its first world title, Spain is not as feared as before, but coach Vicente del Bosque still has the luxury of enough talent and experience to field two teams. Spain’s midfield remains the heartbeat to its […]

Iker Casillas is used to lifting trophies at major tournaments. But this season, he’s also been used to sitting on the bench, and that is perhaps a sign. A sign that the Golden Generation is reaching its close. The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been given reassurances from Vicente del Bosque, but with the coach not afraid to ring the changes, the Spanish captain could be just one of a host of players to be replaced by fresh faces this summer. Spain […]

  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 […]

    Atletico Madrid has been blessed with top-strikers playing for the club. It’s a club that recognises talent early, and after nurturing and developing the player, the club allow him to leave for one of the top clubs around Europe. Fernando Torres was the first phenomenon to achieve Atletico graduation, El Nino was sold to Liverpool where he became part of the history at Anfield, and is now at Chelsea. At one stage, the club had two outstanding marksmen […]

      Spain punched their ticket to the 2014 World Cup a few days ago where they will get to play against the best of the world for the World Cup. This also means that Vicente Del Bosque will also get the rare chance to manage his team to a second consecutive World Cup crown.

  Jose Mourinho’s return to Chelsea in the summer was greeted with sheer delirium, by Chelsea fans and the English media alike. Although it hasn’t gone as peachy as the fans or Mourinho would have hoped. Possibly some of the players too, especially the three Spanish internationals that still remain at the club. Mourinho upon his return quickly shipped Oriol Romeu out on loan to Valencia, leaving him with Fernando Torres, Cesar Azpilicueta and Juan Mata. Before leaving the Spanish capital […]

        With Spain’s 2-1 victory over Belarus in World Cup qualifying Friday, La Furia Roja moved within a point of next summer’s final in Brazil.   While the spine of the team has traditionally been dominated by players from Spain’s Big Two clubs, Real Madrid and Barcelona, the team’s now increasingly more internationally based.   Players like Jesus Navas, Alvaro Negredo, Santi Cazorla and Michu have joined stars such as David Silva, Fernando Torres, Juan Mata and […]
