Torneo Clausurado?

The threat of postponement to the start of the 2008-2009 season has been hanging over Argentine football since the official fixture list for the Primera División was released last week. On Wednesday AFA President Julio Grondona declared that the decision has been taken to provisionally 'postpone all the championships until Futbolístas Argentinos Agremadios [the players'...

Ascenso roundup

There may have been no matches in Primera A the weekend just gone, but the lower divisions carried on as normal, unaffected by the performances (or otherwise) of the world's national teams. Now, then, seems as good a time as any to have a quick look at how the first month or so of lower... Continue Reading →

All the ups and downs

With the completion at the weekend of the Promociónes, the 2007-2008 season is now complete in Argentina. Racing, of course, are the most notable survivors of the relegations playoffs, but there have been shocks in other divisions with little-fancied All Boys winning the Primera B championship, and Nueva Chicago losing their playoff to fall down...

Transfer talk, and a B Nacional update

Juan Román Riquelme's two magnificent free kicks on Saturday night, followed by Argentines bombarding Spanish football websites to let Chilean manager Mauricio Pellegrini know that he really should be considering Riquelme for inclusion in Villarreal's side, will not apparently be enough to save the playmaker's bacon at the Spanish side. 'We're hoping that in December... 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 →

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 →
