Movement of jah people

Next season's Argentines Abroad (on which note, the HEGS / MA Award winner will be announced on Thursday) are swelling their ranks in the annual exodus from the banks of the Paraná and Río de la Plata (the rivers of Babyl... I'll stop, shall I? OK). Rodrigo Palacio is finally leaving La Bombonera and Santiago... Continue Reading →

River and Racing draw in Mendoza

Sunday night's Torneo de Verano match took place in the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza, and saw Racing leading in a closely-fought game which only came to something approximating life in the second half.

Palermo’s heir?

Lucas Viatri had hardly had a sniff of anything in the superclásico, but popped up in the 60th minute to decide the match all the same in a manner the great Martín Palermo, looking on, would have been proud of.

There were also strikes from Radamel Falcao García... Continue Reading →

River flow on

River Plate became the fourth Argentine club in the last 16 of the 2008 Copa Libertadores on Thursday night thanks to an easy home win over Peru's San Martín de Porres in the Monumental. Any result would have done for River as long as they didn't lose by more than one goal, but once Sebastián... Continue Reading →

Coasting at the top

When River Plate visited Tigre during the Clausura, the result was a 4-1 win for the hosts that pushed Daniel Passarella a little bit closer to the exit door at River. Today was the rematch, and the Millonarios showed just what a difference Diego Simeone is making at the club; they didn't play particularly well... Continue Reading →
