  3. Taking A Look At The 2018/19 La Liga Fixtures

    Preparation for the beginning of the La Liga season in the coming months is in full speed. Clubs are well into their training schedules, the team’s sportswear is now available to the public, and now the list of fixtures has been released.

    Therefore, it is time for us to take a look at what 2018/19 has got in store for the Spanish Primera Division. From the table changing news that two key Real Madrid members have departed, to the welcoming of the three newly promoted clubs, we have got it covered below in this article.

    Overview of Schedule

    Last season saw Barcelona take the trophy with a number of teams following closely behind. Within the top 5 were Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Valencia and Villarreal. When it came to the amount of matches won, there was not much in it, considering Atletico, Real and Valencia were so close at 22 and 23 wins compared to Barcelona’s 28.

    The opening match of the season unfortunately does not feature the current Champions. How

    La Liga is the top flight league for Spanish teams such as Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. With the 2018/19 season on the horizon, all clubs have now released their home jerseys for supporters to purchase ahead of the games. In the coming weeks we are expecting to see the rest of the away and third ranges launched by each of the soccer teams.

    Real Madrid Home and Away Kits

    Adidas has recently launched both the home and away jerseys for Real Madrid. After their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title was achieved, we expected to see great things from their sportswear to reflect this. 

    To begin with, the base colour of the home shirt has been updated

  5. What should Gareth Bale do this summer?

    Gareth Bale appears to have come to a crossroads in his footballing career. While, on the surface level, it looks like the Welshman has everything any player might ever wish for, his time in Madrid has not reached the level as to which was expected of him. Bale remains a warm up act rather than the headline show. 

    The former Tottenham winger’s career with Real Madrid started swimmingly, emphasised by scoring two goals that won two very important trophies for Los Blancos. The first was that wonderfully mazy run against Barcelona in the Copa del
    Rey final. And just one month later, Bale was finding the back of the net in extra time to seal the win for Los Blancos against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League. A European night that will go down in Madrid’s history due to how long their 10th Cup evaded them.

    In his first year, the Wales international scored 22 goals and assisted 19 in 44 appearances. Two of those goals were in finals. The future was incredibly brig

  6. Why La Liga is miles ahead of the Premier League - and will be for some time

    The age old debate of whose league is better has been a familiar one in the new age media world. Which is unfortunate for Italian fans, who ruled supreme before the turn of 2000, trailblazing their way through Europe and winning major trophy after major trophy. But with Serie A’s decline, it has paved the way for La Liga and the Premier League to battle it out to be Europe’s number one.

    Both leagues have plenty to offer for different needs when watching football, but there are a number of factors which lead one to think that Spain’s league is far ahead of their competitors. 

    European football 

    When you take a look at the last 15 winners of a European or international trophy, ranging from the Champions League to the Europa League to the Super Cup to the Club World Cup, 14 have been from Spain.

    That doesn’t just include Barcelona and Real Madrid, but also Sevilla, who dominated the Europa League and won it three consecutive times under Unai Emery.<

  7. Ronaldo will always be the man for the biggest moments despite his overall game decreasing

    It is clear to see that at 33 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo’s overall influence on the game has been decreasing, but it does not, however, suggest that the Portuguese superstar is any less efficient or instrumental to Real Madrid’s immediate success.

    The former Manchester United winger once again proved his critics wrong with a sublime performance in the Round of 16 in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain. While he was fortunate for one of his two goals, Ronaldo was continuously in the right place at the right time to finish off the attacking plays that Los Blancos’ architectures created.


    Interestingly, Ronaldo has only scored two goals fewer than he managed after playing 30 games in all competitions this time last year. While there is more to be said at how he is used sparingly by Zinedine Zidane, his overall stats are not trudging behind as some are keen to point out.

    Having scored 26 goals and recorded five assists in 30 appearances, Ronaldo’s perform

  8. Players that have Played Under Both Wenger and Mourinho

    The rivalry between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho will go down as one of the biggest that the Premier League has ever seen. The personalities of coaches, the excitement and hype ahead of the London Derby has made it a thriller of an event to watch.

    However, the story itself has not been the same due to the sacking of Mourinho by Chelsea’s board back in December 2015. Since then, the 55-year-old Portuguese has had his own battles with managers such as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola, but despite these, he has not forgotten to make an occasional dig towards long-term rival Arsene Wenger.

    Following last month’s swap deal, which saw Alexis Sanchez join Manchester United whilst Henrikh Mkhitaryan travelled in the opposite direction, to Arsenal, both players are now part of an elite list of players that have played for Wenger and Mourinho.

    It’s time to go through the players that have relished the chance of working under both managers...

  9. Marco Asensio: The Shining Present and Future of Real Madrid

    30th August 2017. By Ryan Baldi.
    For the second summer in a row, Real Madrid have not made a superstar signing. The club whose modern history is defined by their success on the field and their spending power off it, routinely breaking transfer records for "Galáctico" purchases, have, for the most part, decided to stick rather than twist.

    They have, after all, just won the Champions League for the second year in a row, becoming the first team to defend the title since AC Milan of the early 1990s, so it's hardly as though sweeping changes are required. Manager Zinédine Zidane can already count upon the services of four-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Luka Modri? and Toni Kroos, to name but a few of Los Blancos' foremost luminaries.

    It is also true that, were it not for the almighty spending power of Paris Sai

  10. Bayern Munich Snap up James Rodriguez - An Inspired Move

    2nd August 2017. By Ryan Baldi.
    When James Rodriguez joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2014, he seemed to have the football world at his feet.

    Fresh off the back of a stellar World Cup campaign, carrying Colombia to the quarter-finals and finishing as the tournament's top scorer along the way, his £63 million move to the Bernabeu appeared to crown him as the new prince of European football; Lionel Messi and new team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo still contested the throne, but Rodriguez was surely the heir apparent.

    But three years on, the 26-year-old's Real Madrid tenure cannot be looked back on as a success. Early promise soon faded to the point where, for the final 18 months of his three-year stay in the Spanish capital, he more regularly occupied a place on the substitutes' bench rather than on the pitch.

    Indeed, for the 2017 Champions League
