Madrid Derby Ends 1-1

Here is a brief recap of the Madrid Derby. Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had put his team in the lead in the 30th minute, but he was denied by Savic’s headed clearance. Not long after the halftime whistle, Real Madrid were awarded a free kick that was sent in by Tony Kroos and headed in by Pepe. With less than ten minutes on the clock, Antoine Griezmann netted his 15th goal of the season in the 85th minute to salvage a point for Los Rojiblancos (Atletico Madrid).

2016 Summer Transfers

The 2016 summer transfer window has officially closed. This post will inform you on all the biggest moves that occured. Paul Pogba returned to his former club, Manchester United from Juventus for a world record fee of 105 million Euros! Manchester United seemed to be the big spenders this year, also signing former Villereal center-back Eric Bailly for 38 million Euros, Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan for 42 million, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (PSG) on a free transfer! United weren’t the only big spenders in Manchester though. City bolstered their squad with names such as John Stones (55 million from Everton), Claudio Bravo (18 million from Barcelona), and Leroy Sane (50 million from Schalke), making them a formidable oppent for Jose Mourinho’s Reds (Manchester United). It will be interesting to see how both sides fare this year in the EPL. Fellow Premier League club Chelsea signed Michy Batshuayi for 39 million from Marsielle and N’Golo Kanté for 35 million from last year’s champions, Leicester. Sadio Mane (formerly at Southampton) joined Liverpool for 41 million, Granit Xhaka (formerly at Gladbach) joined Arsenal for 45 million, and Moussa Sissoko (formerly at Newcastle) joined Tottenham for 35 million.

2016 Winter Transfers

With the January transfer window closing a few days ago I have made a post to inform you on who transferred where. Honestly there weren’t many major moves. The largest move was Alex Teixeira from Shakhtar Donetsk to Jiangsu Suning for €50 million. Every other transfer was below €20 million with one exception, Jackson Martinez from Atletico Madrid to Guangzhou Evergrande for €42 million. It seems the Chinese were the only ones who wanted to spend any money. Nigel De Jong went to the LA Galaxy for free. Ashley Cole (AS Roma) also went to the LA Galaxy for free. Denis Cheryshev went to Valencia from Real Madrid on loan. Federico Fazio went on loan to Sevilla from Tottenham. Mathieu Debuchy was loaned out by Arsenal to Bordeaux. Steven Fletcher went on loan to Marseille from Sunderland. Alexandre Pato went to Chelsea on loan from the Corinthians. Gervinho transferred to Hebei China Fortune FC for €18 million. Andros Townsend went to Newcastle from Tottenham for an undisclosed fee. Ramires went to Jiangsu Suning from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee. Emmanuel Adebayor went to Crystal Palace for free. Stephan El Shaarawy was loaned to Roma by AC Milan. Victor Valdes went on loan to Standard Liege from Manchester United. Jonjo Shelvey transferred to Newcastle from Swansea for €12 million. Matt Miazaga, a promising young center-back, went to Chelsea from the New York Red Bulls for an undisclosed fee. You should now be up to date on where your favorite players are.

Barcelona Shock Real Madrid in El Clasico

The El Clasico is one of the most watched sporting events on the planet. Anytime Real Madrid and Barcelona meet it is known as an “El Clasico”. On November 21, here is what happened in this latest clash of titans. Surprisingly, the score was 4-0 to Barcelona, thanks to Luis Suarez netting a brace, scoring in the 11th minute and then again in the 74th minute. Neymar and Iniesta also got on the score sheet in the 39th and 53rd minute, respectively. Real Madrid failed to score, preserving a rare clean sheet for the Catalans (Barcelona). In the end Barca went home with the three points. Thats all for this El Clasico.
