A Better Lens at Spanish Football

barcelona-flag

  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 […]

   Ever since football was brought to its shores by itinerant sailors and British immigrant workers dating back from the late 19th century, Spain has cemented its legacy as a world-class powerhouse of the Beautiful Game. The Real Federación Española de Fútbol, which acts as the governing body of football in Spain, continues to do exceptional work with organizing the La Liga and the Copa del Rey – two of the most celebrated tournaments in the country. Furthermore, the Spanish […]

    Ok, so maybe the whole season hasn’t been a disaster, but it certainly feels like it right now! A shocking performance and defeat at Valladolid is not the ideal preparation for such an important match. But then Manchester City suffered a shock of their own at the weekend; eliminated from the FA Cup by second tier Wigan Athletic in a replay of last season’s final, which Wigan also won. Tata Martino is coming under increasing pressure at Camp […]

When you think of Carles Puyol, you automatically think FC Barcelona and of course, his flowing curly locks of hair. On Tuesday afternoon the Barcelona captain called a press conference to announce his intention to leave the club at the end of the season. It’s not entirely clear what Puyol’s next career move will be, he’s been linked to MLS or maybe he will go into coaching – that remains to be seen. The decision from the 35-year-old defender is […]

    Barça’s recent struggles against defensive minded teams have reignited concerns about this team’s ability to compete for titles down the stretch. The areas of concern range from not having adequate depth in case of injuries along with the lack of having a Plan B for teams that park the bus. With Champions League clashes against Manchester City on the horizon, perhaps Barça need to look into getting some players through transfers or on loan during this winter transfer […]

    Outside they knew before those inside. In a little office where the press passes where being handed out, journalists all squeezed in to see the TV up on the wall. Outside they watched too, with faces pressed against the glass doors, all desperate to get a glimpse. The most important thing of all was in the top left hand corner and it was all anyone was looking at. In bars people were hanging around, glued to the screens. […]

    The persistent injuries suffered by club captain and legend Carles Puyol have led to pundits and fans everywhere calling for Barcelona to sign a top level centreback. While I have agreed, I have also always been of the opinion that there is one waiting in the wings. And this season has seen him stake a claim to be Puyol’s long term replacement in the Barca backline. Step forward Marc Bartra. The twenty three year old has been very […]

  Spain remain many people’s tip to win next year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil, despite the tough group they were handed in December’s draw. The question is; can Spain retain their world crown and win their fourth major title in a row? Their opponents in Group B are Netherlands, Chile and Australia. As I said, a tough group. Australia are not good at all, and will likely lose all three matches, but as for the other two, it couldn’t […]

    This week sees the final matchday of the Champions League group stages, and for FC Barcelona, that means a home clash with Glasgow Celtic. This game should have been a dead rubber, but defeat in their last match in Amsterdam a fortnight ago means that a point is still required to achieve first place in Group H. For Celtic, there is only pride to play for, as they cannot finish anywhere but bottom. Both sides played last Friday […]

    Tears were shed. It was for the best, everyone knew that but still it hurt. Glorious nights, heroic efforts and memories that would never die were embedded all over the place but it was time to move. The truth is the move wasn’t that far at all but still Athletic Club de Bilbao fans were a little worried about moving ground. Would it ever be the same again? The  ground was named after a saint that was fed […]
