A Better Lens at Spanish Football


FC Barcelona got to exact revenge on Real Madrid for their loss earlier in the season and in the process, increased their lead atop of the standings to four points. The victory was a boost to the confidence of the Blaugrana and redemption for some. 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 […]

  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 […]

    September has bid us farewell and October is now upon us. Nevertheless, this new month begins with more questions than answers being provided by FC Barcelona and their manager Luis Enrique. These past few weeks were the manager’s first big test and although he passed his first big test, he still has much work to do. Back in September, I discussed Luis Enrique’s first big test of the season that awaited him that month. I asked if he […]

  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 […]

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 […]
