The Late Show with Diego Forlán as Atlético Madrid Defeats Fulham in the UEFA Europa League Final

Depending on the results of the final round in La Liga this upcoming weekend, Atlético Madrid can finish as high as ninth and as low as eleventh in Spain.  Fulham completed their 2009-10 in the Barclays Premier League in twelfth position.  All mattered not as they both navigated through massive […]

La Liga Preview and US TV Listings for Jornada 35: May 1 – May 2

There will be a Spanish team in a European final, but it is not the team that many expected.  Atlético Madrid completed their strange and wonderful trip to the Europa League final with an extra time goal by Diego Forlán against Liverpool.  As per usual, Atlético did not win the […]

La Liga Jornada 29 Review: Real Madrid Continues Atlético Madrid’s Nightmare in El Derbi Madrileño

A gigantic banner covered one end of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu before the match.  On this banner, the Grim Reaper and other scary creatures from movies and stories past sprawled across, and there was a message for their Madrid neighbors to the south, “Noche de Derby.  Vuestra Peor Pesadilla.” In […]

Atlético Madrid Hits Rock Bottom

Halloween will arrive in a few days, but for Atlético Madrid, this season has been a complete nightmare from the beginning.  Los rojiblancos hit their low point with a dull thud on Saturday when they could not fend off a nine-man Mallorca team and settled for a 1-1 draw at […]

Valencia Unnecessarily Drops Another Two Points

Based on their records coming into this fixture, the Valencia – Atlético Madrid Saturday fixture did not look to be an appetizing match, but knowing each team’s penchant to go forward, their stature in Spanish football, and their performances over the past few years, this game was the one to […]

La Liga in the Champions League: Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid

The group stage of the Champions League began on Tuesday evening, and two La Liga outfits looked to initiate the exorcism of their personal demons. Real Madrid and its galácticos played its first Champions League match of the season against an upstart FC Zürich team who, before the match, seemed […]

Atlético Madrid Continues Their Stumbling Start

Atlético Madrid prolonged their faltering start with a 1-1 draw against Racing Santander on Saturday.  Even with a man advantage for the majority of the second half, they lacked the finishing touch to nip the win from a feisty Santander side.  Racing came off a 4-1 drubbing at El Sardinero […]

La Liga’s Winter XI

There is only one person in the starting XI under the sticks- Iker. Things have not changed much for him. With a suspect backline Iker Casillas is the one that saves Madrid’s hide time after time after time.   He might not be close to his Zamora-winning season last year, […]

Champions League KO Matchups

A former teammate of mine that had a style of play “similar” to Steven Gerrard (and would be insulted as he is a Man Utd.  fan)described the ties in one word- mouthwatering.  I will use this term only once as I could sound redundant.  Each one of these ties could […]

Weekend Preview – August 24th, 2007

La Liga kicks off this weekend and I am going to highlight three games. We start things off with a bang as the Madrid derby sees Real host Atlético. It has been revealed that new signings Arjen Robben and Gabriel Heinze will not make their Real Madrid debuts despite my […]

Forlan v Torres: Atletico Ahead?

SkySports.com has posted an interesting article comparing Atletico Madrid’s former star striker, Fernando Torres, with their new signing Diego Forlan. Torres, after much fan uproar, was allowed to leave for Liverpool for a fee of £26,500,000. At first, it seemed like a blow to the side that had finished 6th […]
