After a 7 game winning streak, some were thinking Barça were back. This nice winning streak has Barça back on the right tracks but there’s still room for improvement for Luis Enrique and his players. Ignoring the need for improvement though could be costly. Barça’s resurrection, or rejuvenation, came after their last loss away to Real Sociedad right after the winter break. The days following that loss turned into a hurricane for the Blaugrana after Messi did not show up […]

La Liga has found itself in another ridiculous situation when it comes to players’ lack of self-control and the league’s failure to properly discipline them. If the league wants to set an example by punishing players, then they need to wake up and revamp its disciplinary committee. January saw the return of La Liga football after the winter break and we already have seen some players commit terrible acts on the pitch that are worthy of a lengthy ban. Yet, […]

  Gareth Bale’s penalty five minutes from time ensured Real Madrid overcame a stern test away at Córdoba. Carlo Ancelotti’s side struggled throughout, as the home side went ahead from the spot after just two minutes, and late in the game Cristiano Ronaldo was given a straight red card for kicking Edimar. Sami Khedira replaced Isco in the starting eleven, the Spaniard didn’t make the squad due to an injury. Córdoba had only beaten Real Madrid once in the 18 game […]

  Last year when the Derbi Madrileno was played in the Copa del Rey tie Real Madrid emerged the victor and with some ease too defeating the Colchoneros 5-0 on aggregate. This time in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey los Rojiblancos exacted a sort of revenge that could be best described by a Guy Ritchie character from his film “Snatch.” Alan Ford’s character “Brick Top”  had a  very popular monologue, “do you know what Nemesis means? A […]

  Atletico Madrid continued their recent dominance over city rivals Real Madrid by knocking the defending champions out of the Copa Del Rey. Diego Simeone again got the better of Carlo Ancelotti as Fernando Torres scored a brace at the Bernabeu to give his team a 2-2 draw on the night (winning 4-2 on aggregate). Ancelotti demanded that the Madridistas created a hostile atmosphere for the game, it was created, helped by the presentation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Ballon d’Or, but the […]

  He was the only logical winner. Only severe injustice could have robbed Cristiano Ronaldo of world’s greatest footballer crown. After a memorable and record breaking year, Portugal, Real Madrid and the world’s finest retained the most prestigious trophy for any footballing individual, Cristiano won the Ballon d’Or [ahead of Lionel Messi], for the second consecutive year [a career third]. For all the ways to describe Cristiano in the past, one often get’s overlooked, the guy is a man of […]

  Gareth Bale provided a critic silencing performance as Real Madrid defeated Espanyol 3-0 in their first home game of 2015. The Welshman played a part in the opening goal scored by James Rodriguez and then scored a free-kick to seal the three points for the league leaders. Carlo Ancelotti fielded his strongest possible starting eleven, Sergio Ramos [rest], Dani Carvajal [suspended] and Luka Modric [injured] were the only ones missing out. Madrid started well, dominating at the business end […]

Both managers decided to make notable changes to their starting lineup, Simeone left out Koke, Arda Turan, Miranda […]

The prodigal son, Fernando Torres, has returned to Madrid and the club from which he grew up following and playing at, Atletico Madrid. Fernando Torres left Atletico Madrid in July of 2007 for Liverpool FC. When El Nino was at the Rojiblancos back from 2001 through to 2007 he tallied 82 goals for Atleti in 214 appearances. Much like the biblical story the prodigal son, when Torres left Spain for England in the summer of 2007 he brought his fantastic […]
