  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. Atletico's dreams come true at Camp Nou

    Graham Hunter

    BARCELONA, Spain -- Little wonder that the Camp Nou applauded at the end. Not every last man, woman and child -- that would be nirvana, which, in football, doesn't exist -- but large swaths of fans identifiably, kitted out either in Barca's blaug...

  3. Casillas the competitor still key for Spain

    Graham Hunter

    There's a fabulous picture of Iker Casillas that was taken last summer. It's not one of him on the beach in Ibiza with his partner Sara Carbonero and their child. It's not the kind of "happy snap" that annoyed Jose Mourinho so much when he was Rea...

  4. Competitive Casillas still Spain's key

    Graham Hunter

    There's a fabulous picture of Iker Casillas that was taken last summer. It's not one of him on the beach in Ibiza with his partner Sara Carbonero and their child. It's not the kind of "happy snap" which annoyed Jose Mourinho so much when he was Real ...

  5. 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...

  6. Alves incident must generate anti-racism momentum

    Graham Hunter

    I would never go so far as to say that the racist cretin who tried to humiliate Dani Alves on Sunday night has ended up doing something positive. However, there is the tantalizing thought that part of the punishment may be realizing that it was the o...

  7. 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...

  8. Homegrown stars to the fore in this clasico

    Graham Hunter

    For Real Madrid, this has been a week where any tension over the clasico has been defused by a huge outpouring of sympathy and support for Jese, their home-bred tyro whose damaged ligaments will rob him of the next nine months. Spain is a very di...

  9. Diego Costa transition key to Spain's World Cup fortunes

    Graham Hunter

    There will certainly be some who don't wish Diego Costa well against Italy on Wednesday night. To some he's a traitor; to others, one of those players whose behaviour sullies football. I take a wholly different stance: The Brazilian-turned-Spania...

  10. The La Roja case for Raul Garcia, San Iker and Barca's defence

    Graham Hunter

    If you take a glance at the superfluity of world class midfielders upon whom Spain can already call, then it's barely credible that one more candidate to make the plane to Brazil with the world champions has emerged. But that's what has happened a...

    Graham Hunter

    With another memorable calendar year gone in Spain's top flight, we look at those with something to cheer -- or something to moan about -- over the festive period. Good Year: La Liga Exports There persists a stubborn one-eyed minority who can't (...

  12. UCL draw tricky, kind, fun for Spain's elite

    Graham Hunter

    We are all capable of a little slip of the tongue, particularly under pressure, so no harm and no foul to UEFA's Gianni Infantino. During the draw for the Champions League knockout round, he credited Real Madrid with 10 titles in this competition bef...

  13. Confusion, secrecy, chaos will ruin Ballon d'Or

    Graham Hunter

    Of course, as soon as the news filtered out, broken first to my knowledge by Spain's France Football correspondent, Francesc Aguilar of El Mundo Deportivo, the conspiracy theories erupted. And that was the benign part. There followed incredulity, ...
