La Liga Talk Throughout the Summer

This writer has not fallen off the face of the earth after the season concluded in mid-May.  I am writing this as I leave on a boat from Napoli en route to Palma de Mallorca.  I have been traveling through Europe these past weeks, and I was in Barcelona to […]

The Renaissance Continues for Real Zaragoza as They Defeat Sevilla Under the Spanish Dusk

The January transfer window is made for the top teams to reinforce their squads for a title run.  As a whole, the window flew by with little fanfare.  Real Zaragoza was one of the few teams in Europe to make sweeping changes to their roster.  While their moves would hardly […]

Joe Cole Set To Quit Chelsea For Manchester City?

With Joe Cole out of contract at Chelsea in the summer, there’s no surprise in there being a few Premiership Clubs ‘poking their noses’ into the status of the current situation regarding the player at the moment.

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 […]

A Weekend to Forget? Not So Fast, My Friend

If you’re a neutral observer like me, this weekend’s slate of games really doesn’t have any compelling storylines or reasons to get excited, at least from the outside. None of the big teams are playing each other and there are no rivalry games. The closest thing to a true derby […]

The next Copa America will be in Chile in 2015, but when the Confederation of CONMEBOL celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2016 they want to hold a special tournament and it won’t be on the South American Continent. Reports coming from Mexico and Goal are that there will be a […]
