For decades, La Liga was blessed with having two of the almighty superpowers of footballing prowess in one league, and at opposite ends of an immensely competitive, rich, and almost age-old rivalry. Ronaldo’s departure from Los Blancos had football fans wondering whether El Clasico would ever be the same after encounters with the other man vying for the title of best footballer in the world, but now with Messi’s departure from Barcelona, many are questioning whether the old and bitter rivalry will ever be as beautifully contested as it was in what has been a golden age for … [Read more...]
Gareth Bale Should Be Real Madrid’s Hero – He Chooses to Be a Dispassionate Professional Instead
It is an open secret that the relationship between Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale and Real Madrid is not ideal. The player still counts as an outsider six years after signing with the Madrid club, and his attitude and commitment - or better said the lack of it - have attracted a lot of criticism toward the player. His latest stunt - flying a flag that read "Wales, Golf, Madrid, in that order" after the team's victory over Hungary, added fuel to the fire. The flag can easily be considered an act of open defiance, pointing a finger on the complicated relationship between the player and the … [Read more...]

Meanwhile, Villarreal have endured a difficult start to the campaign and will be hoping for a first win of the season when Real Madrid comes to town on Sunday evening. Match Preview Zinedine Zidane cut an increasingly frustrated figure on the touchline last weekend as Real Madrid squandered a 1-0 lead to draw 1-1 at home against Valladolid.

Bale holds the Key to Transfer Merry-go-round
La Liga clubs have been splashing the cash in the summer transfer window, but the rumour is despite having already bought in Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy and Rodrygo (to name but a few) it seems Real Madrid are not done yet. However, only if they can get rid of a couple of thorns in their side one of them being the world’s best-paid golfer: Gareth Bale. It has been clear for quite some time now the Welsh wizard has fallen out of favour with both the fans and manager at the Bernabeu but with whopping wages, it seems everything is at a stalemate.

Can Real Madrid Win La Liga Next Season?
The return of Zinedine Zidane to the Bernabeu was one of the most surprising turn of events in the La Liga season. However, it did very little to improve their fortunes on the field that much with the club ending the season in third place behind their arch-rivals Atletico and champions Barcelona. The summer window is a massive deal for the club, and they have already indicated their intent with early signings of massive players. However, the lingering doubt of many players will likely decide the mood of the club as they begin their season. Madrid ended the season with three defeats in their … [Read more...]
Solari Gets Permanent Real Gig
It has been a rough ride for Real Madrid since their summer of discontent. First Zinedine Zidane leaves after a trophy-laden spell, then star man Cristiano Ronaldo heads to Turin giants Juventus and then new boss Julen Lopetugui has a complete nightmare and gets himself sacked after just four months in the hot seat and an embarrassing 5-1 El Clasico hammering. With speculation rife as to who may take over the coveted Real managers seat with Antonio Conte and Mauricio Pochettino heavily linked with the vacant seat, Los Blancos have promoted internally taking a leaf out of rivals … [Read more...]
Who is in the Running to be the Next Real Madrid Boss?
It almost feels a little criminal writing this as Julen Lopetegui still occupies the Real Madrid hot seat. However, by Real’s lofty standards, the current predicament is quite frankly an embarrassment and despite only accepting the Los Blancos job prior to the World Cup, there is a sense that the former Spain head coach will be departing the club sooner rather than later. Ahead of the iconic El Clasico, Real Madrid sit seventh in the table with just four wins from their opening nine games. Remarkably, this puts Lopetegui’s side behind the likes of Espanyol, Alaves and even Real … [Read more...]
Lopetegui replacement on Real’s radar?
Real Madrid are already sounding out potential replacements for Julen Lopetegui after the new manager made a disastrous start to life at the Bernebeu. Los Blancos are winless in their last four games and the players are said to be mutinous over his questionable tactics. A 1-0 defeat away at Alaves last time out embarrassed the European champions, and Lopetegui is on very thin ice indeed. Florentino Perez has already drawn up a shortlist of candidates to replace the former Spain boss, including Antonio Conte, Michael Laudrup and Laurent Blanc. Lopetegui’s one saving grace is that Barcelona … [Read more...]
