A Better Lens at Spanish Football


The three remaining La Liga sides found out their fate in the last-16 draw for the Champions League on Monday afternoon. To be fair, all three will be reasonably confident of making the last eight, as the league will be hoping for maximum exposure and a repeat of the all-Spanish final in Lisbon in May. The first tie will be a repeat of last season, as Real Madrid will take on Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke side. Ancelotti’s men will be […]

  by  vagueonthehow  Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has staked his faith in Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea by reportedly offering the 24-year-old shot-stopper the biggest contract ever awarded to a goalkeeper. According to reports in the press, the Dutch manager is keen to double De Gea’s wages to £140k a week for the next five years. This would make the contract worth a whopping £36.5m.   Top Bracket There is no doubting that De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers around but […]

It’s no secret that the current FC Barcelona board is not highly popular among the FC Barcelona fans at this moment. Out of all the directors and members of this administration, Zubizarreta stands out as one of the most disliked figureheads at this club. Zubizaretta’s tenure as Sporting Director at this club will go down as one who has been ridiculed on social media for his inept handling of his position. The thought he will remain with this club till […]

Real Madrid’s below par performance on Saturday night fortunately wasn’t reflected in the scoreline as Carlo Ancelotti’s side extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 5-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano. There were two notable changes for the league leaders as Keylor Navas replaced Iker Casillas in goal and Isco made way for Gareth Bale. Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with his third Golden Boot prior to kick off for his mesmerising goal scoring feat last season. Madrid were averaging […]

  The time has come for this FC Barcelona board to step down and call for elections. There have been others, besides me, who have also asked for this that have been unjustly labeled as “spoiled.” It’s this sort mentality that seems to hold this club back when it’s time to demand for change. I always loved the spoiled fans argument when fellow fans disagree with your displeasure with your club. I never understood how criticizing your club is not […]

Many would have been forgiven in the summer if they thought James Rodriguez’s arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu as the newest galactico would spell the end of Isco’s career in the Spanish capital. Instead, Angel Di Maria was the victim; he joined Louis van Gaal’s new-look Manchester United. It has been a blessing in disguise, for Isco and Ancelotti as the baby-faced playmaker’s recent form is making sure Di Maria is not missed as much as he may have been. […]

  Real Madrid defeated Barcelona 3-1 in the first El Clasico of the season, courtesy of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Karim Benzema having gone a goal down in the early stages of the match. Barcelona came into the game having won all eight games and not having conceded a single goal in the process, whilst Madrid kicked-off four points behind their arch-rivals. Luis Enrique decided to start Luis Suarez to give this already massive game an extra bite, […]
