REAL MADRID ,La Liga is here again Hala Madrid!!!

Allo ,hello, ola, Hola la Liga is here again… Today the Liga starts, that is football for most ,soccer for some,and calcio for a few of you. This is Spain top division, commonly refere as the Liga BBVA as sponsored by the big Spanish bank.

Real Madrid starts the third year of Mouriñho term in office, and defending Liga Champions. The team is the glory of Spain and its history, 32 Liga championships speaks loud and clear in my book. However, a team such as this needs more , a lot more. The European Champions league is made for them, won it 9 times more than any,and its the team ultimate goal. So this year we are going for the 33rd Liga and the 10th Champions lol! Hala Madrid

A bit about me and the game as my travel time had kept the football in the background. My first steps into the sports was while living in Madrid as a young boy of 10, there playing around the Elipa, met some young Spaniards who encourage me to try for the team. My grandparents are from Tenerife so I had Spanish citizenship too. Ins and outs of the politics of the system I end up playing in the formation training group for the Real Madrid at Casa de Campo fields. This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship (as Ricky said in Casablanca), actually it had grown stronger over the years, and now its a passion without limits. And I am glad that my sons had shown an interes in the club as well.

Leaving Madrid was of necessary for my parents, but been fortunate enough to come back often,and now living in Europe again, my trips there are frequent. This allows to give me time to stay closer to my love,Real Madrid. It has given me the opportunity to stay closer to other fans with the same love,and to make new friends in Spain that have remain close over the years,sort like a family away from home.

Tonite the Liga starts,and with that life comes stronger ,tonite at 19h (Madrid time) the quest for the ultimate begins, and we play tough Valencia at Bernabeu stadium in Madrid.  This will be the eighth time in its history against Valencia on the opening day of the championship, and in the seven preceding matches Real Madrid have managed five wins, four of them in the Santiago Bernabeu, and only two losses. In the total balance of matches Real Madrid has managed 58 wins, 10 draws and nine defeats in the 77 games in which they played at home against Valencia CF.

The 2012-13 Real Madrid roster is of Casillas, Adán, and  Jesús as goalies, Defenders: Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Coentrão, Albiol, Arbeloa ,and Varane. Midfielders :Kaká, Özil, Xabi Alonso, Granero, Khedira, Lass, Callejón ,and Di María. Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuaín, and Morata.

The Liga for the rest started yesterday, with the first wins of Malaga, Sevilla, and Mallorca vs Celta, Getafe,and Espanyol.  If you want to follow the Liga in Spanish try here which I have in my links below my blog ,  ,and if you want to see the games when not available in your home country try this site I have use for years while outside of Spain, Roja Directa. you can see a lot more than football/soccer.
