When Barça lost in the Spanish capital to Real Madrid during week 9, Barça had a one point lead atop of the standings. They would soon lose the top spot to Madrid and struggle the […]

  Barcelona’s 2-1 victory in last weekend’s Clasico was a vital one, in more ways than one.  It not only helped the Catalans get some breathing space in the race for the title, but It helped reinforce the good work Luis Enrique has carried out since taking over from Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino in the summer. It seems quite incredible that there was talk of Luis Enrique losing his job earlier this season. There was criticism coming from the fans regarding […]

  Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey hopes have been snuffed out in a fiery encounter at the Estadio Calderon. The first half of the second leg would be the main talking point and perhaps one of the best halves played in football in Spain this year. The first leg at the Camp Nou ended in a 1-0 victory for Barcelona against Atletico Madrid. The lone goal came from a penalty from one Lionel Messi, fortunate too since the Atleti goalkeeper […]

  Yet another appeal for Barça. Barça seems to be as busy on the pitch as they are off the pitch. Last week, FIFA rejected FC Barcelona’s transfer ban appeal regarding the transfers of youth players into La Masia. The punishment was that the team could not sign players for two transfer windows. Thus, Barça risk the chance of not signing any new players next season which makes you wonder why didn’t they plan ahead and do more this transfer […]
