Some reading matter

My latest piece for Pitch Invasion looks back on the black weekend Argentine football has just experienced, and explains some of the issues behind the security operations, and what might be considered by the Argentine media in the coming weeks. There's also a really rather good photo (if I say so myself). 'Olé’s front page... Continue Reading →


Three versions of a killer

The circumstances surrounding Emanuel Alvarez's death whilst travelling to see Vélez Sársfield take on San Lorenzo in the Nuevo Gasometro are being slowly pieced together. In the last two-and-a-half days there has been, though, no shortage of disagreement about who exactly the killer was - an Huracán barra? A San Lorenzo 'fan'? Or a lone... Continue Reading →

Stat additions

If you've got little to do today, and like looking at numbers a bit, make your way over to the recently expanded Tables page. There, you'll find the embryonic league table for the Torneo de Verano, as well as the final standings in the Apertura and the top scorers for that campaign - as well... Continue Reading →

Lower division results

My initial intention was to post this last night, but illness put paid to that, so apologies to anyone who got excited when reading about the return of this feature on Sunday's post. Primeras C and D were still in action on the weekend of the 15th December, so step this way for the results... Continue Reading →

Lower division results

As the least widely-read of the site's weekly features, I hope those who do use this update will forgive me for curtailing it during my few weeks 'doing' Spain. Scores will be given without scorers, but I'll try and include the normal links to the lower division scores as often as possible. In B Nacional... Continue Reading →

Lower division results

The latest rounds of matches in Argentina's lower divisions are staggered and some won't be fully completed until Tuesday, but here you'll find the results thus far for B Nacional, and links to those from the other divisions (which pages will be updated as and when the remaining scores come in). In B Nacional, there... Continue Reading →

Apertura ’07: round 9 fixtures

Primera A sees the clásico rosarino on Sunday as Newell's, without a win in three, host Central, without a win at all this season, in El Coloso del Parque. Vélez visit Racing and two of the newly-promoted sides meet as Huracán host San Martín. In B Nacional, Ferro take on Almirante Brown on Friday. Step this way... Continue Reading →

Apertura ’07: round 7 fixtures

It's that time of week again. Round 7 of the Apertura is upon us, with River vs. Vélez probably acting as the round's standout fixture, although it'll be interesting to see how Huracán get on under caretaker managership, as they host Gimnasia. In B Nacional, the theme is very much Mendoza vs. Córdoba, with Independiente... Continue Reading →

Apertura ’07: round 6 scores and scorers

Another round is over, and we've seen the last undefeated record in the top flight (Huracán's) fall, other promoted sides claim important points and a clásico that finished all square and left no-one really satisfied. Notable results in the lower divisions were Aldosivi's demolition job against Independiente Rivadavia and Talleres' win over Instituto in this... Continue Reading →
