Barca took a huge stride towards securing the league title with a crucial 2-1 home win against arch-rivals Real Madrid on Sunday.

Luis Suarez – From flat-track bully to man for the big occasion

Despite shining in England, some questioned the Uruguayan’s ability to perform in the big games enough. This reputation as a flat-track bully though, is quickly changing at Barcelona, with Sunday’s El Clasico winner the latest in a number of big game goals in recent times for El Pistolero.

An analysis of Barcelona’s new tactics

After another hard fought and tense El Clasico, Barcelona left the stadium with a 2-1 victory and a four point cushion atop of the league table. Barcelona has now won 19 out of their last 20 games and a team that just two months ago seemed on the edge of collapse now controls its own […]

Manchester City must look to Spain to revive their fortunes.

Manchester City in my opinion are not in ‘crisis’ as many pundits like to state. But the side could be well fall into oblivion should they fail to sign significant players in the upcoming window. Since 2012 signings have been of a sub-par standard. Javi Garcia, Jack Rodwell, Scott Sinclair, Nastasic all arrived following the […]

El Clasico – Barcelona v Real Madrid prediction

As we all know, the biggest game in club football occurs tomorrow when Barcelona host Real Madrid. Depending on the person, the fixture symbolises alternative things.  For some, it is Republicanism versus Monarchism, while others regard it as Spain versus Catalonia but for me it is simply footballing juggernaut versus a fellow footballing juggernaut.

Bilbao's kids are good but Sociedad's are alright too

Real Sociedad’s first away win of the season

After 11 successful seasons at Goodison Park, the 13/14 season was one to forget for David Moyes, after regularly being booed by the United faithful at the end of games at Old Trafford. Following his embarrassment at the Red Devils, it was important Moyes got his managerial career back on track and showed to the […]

Is Alberto Bueno worthy of a Spanish call-up?

Spain face Ukraine and the Netherlands in the next fortnight as European football takes a short break for the international schedule to resume. One man who won’t be happy to see a pause in proceedings is Rayo Vallecano striker Alberto Bueno who has been in scintillating form since the turn of the year. The former […]

CD Torrevieja

CD Torrevieja, a club on the up

Whilst everyone will spend today talking about Real Madrid losing and Messi getting yet another hat-trick, there is another Spanish club that is being talked about almost as much as the La Liga giants.

Is this a blip for Bale or the end?

The Welshman has endured a difficult second season in the Spanish capital to date, but is his poor form anything more than a tough spell? After a successful first year, the emphasis was very much on further improvement from Gareth Bale for this season. However injuries hampered the early sections of the current term for […]

Barcelona Need Neymar to Find Best Form Ahead of Man City and Madrid Clashes

Barcelona’s win over Eibar on Saturday night was down to the one and only Lionel Messi, however the player it seems most interesting to focus on is his strike partner Neymar. We know all about the Argentinian and his propensity to bewitch, dazzle and destroy opponents, with the Basque minnows his latest victims and the quality of his two goals, […]
