  1. Selection scenarios and climate concerns

    Graham Hunter

    The thing about uncharted waters is that they can get a bit choppy. The sandbank you didn't know was there, the sea monster that should have been marked with "thar be danger" on the ocean chart, the prospect of the crew mutinying. Interestingly fo...

  2. Barca and Atletico are both worthy of winning La Liga

    Graham Hunter

    They say that by the end of the season, the league table never lies. But in Spain it appears as if it might be about to be guilty of a wee fib. My guess is that should Barcelona beat Atletico Madrid on Saturday afternoon at the Camp Nou, there wil...

  3. Atleti exultant as Barca compromise their style

    Graham Hunter

    The first name which flitted into my mind when Howard Webb blew the final whistle was that of Luis Aragones. His death earlier this year robbed Atletico Madrid of the man who was, arguably, their all-time legend. On Wednesday night his old club...

  4. Barca-Atletico a great advert for football

    Graham Hunter

    BARCELONA, Spain -- The day before Tuesday's match, Dani Alves joked that Luis Figo kept selecting the "hot" capsule from the hat when the draw was made, because having paired Barcelona with Bayern Munich last season, here was another of what Alves r...

  5. After weeks of struggle, Barcelona get it right

    Graham Hunter

    BARCELONA -- So, there will be three Spanish teams in the Champions League quarterfinals once again. Broadly, that's a litmus test of quality, but not a guarantee that any of them will contest the final in Lisbon. This candidate, the club which ha...

  6. The eerie parallels between Pep, Xavi and Cesc

    Graham Hunter

    It's funny how the passage of time can not only dull the memory but utterly "erase" things that actually happened. Although he disagrees with me and repeatedly claims that Andres Iniesta is already his better, I honestly believe that Xavi Hernande...

  8. As times change at Barcelona, should the formation?

    Graham Hunter

    Johan Cruyff, the architect of it all, is fiercely disliked by the Barcelona president, Sandro Rosell, and has announced that he will not return to the Camp Nou while Rosell is in charge. Pep Guardiola, the Crown Prince of Cruyffism, came, won and...

  10. Confed Cup Team Preview: Spain

    Graham Hunter

    Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta have, separately, given their interviewer what's called an "old-fashioned look" -- as if to say, "Are you off your head?" -- when asked whether it's a bit of a pain to be in Brazil on FIFA duty this summer. Iker Casi...

  12. Champion effort lifts Spain over France

    Graham Hunter

    In retrospect, Spain's draw with Finland on Friday -- and the hot, harsh sting of wounded pride Vicente del Bosque's men felt -- was absolutely the worst thing possible that could have happened to France. History isn't on Spain's side when it com...

  13. Heat turning up on La Roja

    Graham Hunter

    Make no mistake about it, Spain's six-year status as the uncontested world No. 1 international side is about to be attacked with all weapons and -- hopefully for the contenders -- battered into submission over the next 15 months, starting this week. ...

  14. Spanish football sets the standard

    Graham Hunter

    What a night for Spanish football. I've long held that despite the 'up and at 'em', thud and blunder of the Premier League, the pockets of quality in English football and the tremendous fan culture there, La Liga is far and away the best pound fo...

  15. Real Madrid must take bigger risks and build for the future

    Graham Hunter
