A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Messi vs Valencia

        The season started with no Champions League football while Serbian James Bond Djukic replaced Ernesto Valverde with the motto “Valencia is a sleeping giant who I intend to wake”. Valencia fans were obviously not sure whether this is the giant they were looking for as the season progressed. The season was full of uncertainty both on the pitch and off the pitch. Djukic was only good at creating a complete mess.  Every match was a horror […]

  Football tends to throw up lots of firsts. Saturday evening will be no different; it will be the first European Cup final between two sides from the same city.  Lisbon for 120 minute will turn into a mini Madrid is both sets of fans make the 6-hour journey across the border to see their teams battle it out for the most prestigious prize in European club football. It will be a chance for the newly-crowned La Liga champions Atleti […]

  The season is drawing to a close, with only one round of fixtures left. This season for many La Liga watchers has been the best season in recent history. That being said, I felt it would be an appropriate time to pick my own best eleven from the league season.   Goalkeeper: Keylor Navas (Levante) Despite Levante having a -7 goal difference the Costa Rican has been in magnificent form amassing a superb 16 clean sheets. If it wasn’t […]

    The writing was on the wall. This game always upsets some one but everyone seemed to have ignored that little fact. In 2o11 Málaga came to the Vicente Calderon needing a win to stay up but Atlético were playing for a European place. Málaga hammered Atlético by three goals to nil. Atleti would qualify for the Europa League that year but only with a little help from Real Madrid. Málaga stayed up and went on a shopping spree. […]

The gunfight at the Camp Nou will take place at high noon for these two gunslingers. Both teams have had their ups and downs but managed to stay in the hunt till now.

  Both of Madrid’s biggest clubs are at loggerheads as the season reaches its dying embers.  Not only are they fighting along with Barcelona for the La Liga title, now they will end the season going head-to-head in the biggest club game in European football in Benfica’s Stadium of Light on May 24th. In the end, it was all too easy as Madrid thrashed Bayern and ended their hopes of back-to-back European titles. Atleti booked their place in the final […]

    The Dani Alves banana incident is still fresh in everyone’s minds following the great reaction through the social media. Sadly, posting a photo on Instagram is not enough. La Liga got another awful reminder today when some Atlético fans made monkey chants towards Levante’s African player, Diop, today. Diop danced like a monkey to mock them back. La Liga cannot afford to tap dance its way around this issue anymore and must deal with clubs severely. Back in […]

  La Decima is potentially just 180 minutes away, it would end a 12-year wait for the Real Madrid fans and lift a massive weight off the shoulders of the manager Carlo Ancelotti and his group of players.  First, they must get past the holders and their Catalan coach Pep Guardiola, who will no doubt be left smarting after his side’s loss at the Bernabeu, doubly so with it being his first personal loss at the home of Real Madrid […]

    Barça’s disappointing culmination on what seemed to be a promising season is coming to a bitter end. The hopes of capturing the league crown remain miraculous at best since it is no longer in their hands. With the FIFA transfer ban on hiatus now, the club can make new signings. If the club’s proclamation that new players will be bought is true, then it’s time they clean house; from top to bottom.   This season has been a roller […]
