April 22, 2012 by


Finally after 4 long years of pain and misery of winless league Clasico for Madridistas, there was joy. Finally after 4 long years, Real Madrid won a league Clasico against Barcelona.

How things change so fast in Football … from absolutely nothing to utterly everything in the space of just 16 minutes – that is the story of Real Madrid from yesterday’s match.

February 24, 2012 by
