In a match that will live long in memory, Barcelona destroyed Real Madrid 5-0 in arguably football’s greatest derby, El Classico. It was also the biggest defeat in Jose Mourinho’s career, one which shuttered the aura of invisibility Real had been building around them this season, and made Barcelona the kings of Spain again. Those […]

Here’s something that I really find crazy about UEFA, and the governing body of football in general. They apparently can do nothing about players diving, wasting time in a match, acting unprofessionally; they can do nothing about referees failing to see obvious goals, penalties, or getting offside decisions totally incorrect; but if someone deliberately gets […]

It’s not often that a club manager may feel a bit low when his side achieve a historical 8-0 away victory, such as what Barcelona did in their match against Almeria over the weekend, but that was the reality for Pep Guardiola. The reason for this is that Juan Manuel Lillo was fired from his […]

“The Special One” can’t seem to stay out of trouble wherever he manages. Although on the field he has been a success so far for Real Madrid, he can’t seem to keep his ego in check, and was sent off in his side’s 5-1 victory in the Spanish club on Wednesday. He insulted the referee […]

Recent stories are linking Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho to the vacant Portugal job, if only on a part-time basis, before a new permanent couch is selected. The “Special One” has more than once said that eventually he would like to help his country out on an international level, and now seems like a good […]

Spanish La Liga side Real Mallorca were kicked out of the Europa League due to “financial reasons”, and their place was given to Villarreal, who finished 7th last season.

Following Real Madrid’s 2-0 loss to rivals Barcelona at the weekend, a match that was watched by millions around the world, much has been talked about how Barca are certain champions of Spain now, and no one can stand in their way. Despite being outplayed, however, Real Madrid’s players are saying they’ll fight on to […]

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has stalled over a new contract at the club, apparently waiting to see who the new president will be after Joan Laporta steps down this spring. It almost sounds a bit ridiculous to suggest that after leading Barca to an incredible six-trophy season, there are questions over his future, but you […]

Christiano Ronaldo is not exactly a popular player amongst football referees, but in the weekend’s La Liga match between Real and Almeria (where Madrid won 4-2), he was red-carded for one of the most absurd offenses in the game—for taking off his shirt. Technically, it was his first yellow card of the game, but after […]

The new Real Madrid group of superstar players are yet to show the brilliant football everyone knows they can play and what they can win, but in terms of popularity, they are lagging quite a bit behind the first “Galacticos” era. The current star-studded team with Christiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso have […]
