The Argentine Primera División season is over, and the era of thirty-team championships goes with it; with four teams going down and just two coming up (we don't know whom yet, because the B Nacional still has between five and six rounds left to play), the 2017-18 season will 'only' include twenty-eight sides. You can... Continue Reading →
Welcome back to my humble blog, everyone! Budget tightening at The Bubble means that I’ll be writing for them less frequently for a few months, and the main victim of that decision is my weekly Friday article in which I give a quick preview of the main things to watch for in the weekend’s Primera...

The last 'short championship' (as we currently know them at least) of the era is now eleven matches in in Argentina, and with eight games to go I thought it was time to try and get back to posting something - anything - here.

Friday evening's matches brought one draw - a 0-0 between Vélez Sarsfield and Tigre in front of an empty stadium in Liniers - and two home wins; 1-0 to Estudiantes against Arsenal de Sarandí, and more surprisingly, 2-0 to Olimpo against the champions San Lorenzo in Bahía Blanca. The Torneo Inicial saw home advantage count... Continue Reading →
