To mark Real Madrid's momentous 19th Copa Del Rey Trophy, the pod had all four members around this time: Bassam, Kaushik, Rahul and myself.

It's okay Arsenal fans, I have already given myself a pinch to make sure that I really am awake, and it is not April fools day either. It really is being reported that Lionel Messi could be up for sale this summer. The Barcelona and Argentina forward has been out of sorts in recent weeks [...]
It has been a season of discontent for both Lionel Messi and Barcelona this season as both have endured on and off the field issues.
Messi is reportedly upset with Barca for not backing him over his tax situation this summer and his camp feel that the reason is picking up so many injuries is because he has been overused in recent years.
Insospechado. Más allá de la cronología y de que alguna vez el reinado acabaría no podría suponerse que "hinchas" del Barcelona se tomaran la molestia de apostarse de madrugada (3.30) en las puertas del Camp Nou sólo para insultar a su técnico y jugadores. "Messi eres una mierda", "Tata vete ya", "con lo que cobran.
Ohne Zweifel sind Cristiano Ronaldo und Lionel Messi Rivalen auf dem Platz, das heißt aber nicht zwangsläufig, dass sie sich nicht leiden können, wie es sogenannte Fußballexperten hin und wieder behaupten.Ronaldo tröstet Messi nach dem Pokalfinale
Why d id Real Madrid pay 100 million euros for Bale? The Copa Del Rey final should give you all the reasons why. Bale now has scored 20 goals in 39 games this season while Neymar has scored 15 goals in 40 appearances. Not to mention the fact that Bale has been going to a [...]
Lionel Messi's first goal against Milan in 2012-13 season's Champions League. Those who criticize him should remember how good he is when the team could give him a bit more space. Those who are interested should see Villa's positioning and the effect that has on the defense.

"The second Goal created by Iniesta again the space is Key"
"The search for a scapegoat is the easiest of all hunting expeditions"

It's "as you were" at the summit of La Liga as the top three all won once again. Athletic Madrid overcame Villarreal, Barcelona beat rock-bottom Betis and Real Madrid won well at Real Sociedad. Atleti are a point ahead of Barca, who in turn lead Real Madrid by two points with just six matches to go.
Barca kept their pursuit of the league leaders Atletico Madrid by raking up a not so impressive victory against Real Betis at home. Two penalties from Lionel Messi and an own goal gave Barca 3-1 victory. The team was no where near its best but still the three points gained again was vital as Atletico Madrid won earlier.

An incident-packed Clasico saw Barcelona edge Real Madrid by the odd goal in seven to close the gap at the top of La Liga to a point while Atletico won at Real Betis as the Spanish title race took another intriguing turn.
The season's second Clasico delivered seven goals, three penalties, a red card and a Lionel Messi hat-trick as Barcelona left the Santiago Bernabeu with three points from a storming 4-3 victory over Real Madrid.
Santiago Bernebeu, this was supposed to Cristiano Ronaldo's romping ground, a field where he bulldozes opposition into submission, one where he morph into a matador; but someone forgot to tell that to Lionel Messi. Last night Lionel Messi answered his critics in spectacular fashion in the process re-wrote the history books a number of times.
El futbol mundial ha tenido dos nombres en la boca durante los últimos años, Lionel Messi y Cristiano Ronaldo. Estas dos figuras del futbol han sido comparadas por lo que hacen en la cancha, pero ahora los compararemos por lo que hacen fuera de ella, específicamente haremos una comparación del marketing de cada uno.
Manchester United, having gone into the match tasked with avoiding further humiliation in this most abject of seasons, produced a hugely spirited display and will be disappointed to head to Munich next Wednesday with merely a 1-1 draw to show for their efforts.
That the Red Devils produced such a result against the odds attributes a lot to their counter-attacking game-plan.

He's probably the most skillful player ever to grace the football World? And here's just a snippet of why Lionel Messi is right up their with a the World's legend's forget the goals what about his first touch? It's awesome.
Everton's Goodison Park hosted an "Evening of Spanish Football" last week that saw three iconic figures in the Spanish game share their opinions with an audience of hundreds.
On stage, Sky Sports' Spanish soccer expert Guillem Balague, Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro and editor of Spanish newspaper AS, Alfredo Relaño, offered typically insightful and highly intriguing opinions on a host of matters.
In case you weren't aware, scoring goals in soccer is really difficult. This is undeniably true across all levels of soccer. The most common scores in the four major European leagues (EPL, La Liga, Serie A, and Bundesliga) are either 1-0 or 1-1. Remember that the world's best scorers play in those leagues.
It an el clasico to remember last night, with the fastest double being scored in 36 years (Benzema's two goals in a span of four minutes) and perhaps an inkling of frustration from Real Madrid, after having to settle for a 3-4 scoreline at the Bernabeu.
Let's not forget that Sergio Ramos also cemented his reputation for being the man who has been sent off "more times than anyone in Madrid's history" by picking up his 19th red card yesterday.
