‘Ollllllmos,olllllmos,ollllmmmossss’ rang from the terraces, the ref didn’t like us much either nor our own touchline for swathes of this game as britanicos navigated a trickier challenge than league positions suggested. Some were less surprised and had spotted an upturn in the form of Olmos, who represent a young improving side that will match most […]

An interesting aspect of this league, and a great testament to the many different communities that have found a home in Madrid, is that it is not completely unusual to have a game in which the two sides represent not their barrio, an old school or a local bar, but in fact an actual whole […]

FCB Britanicos were hoping to keep up recent momentum as they traveled deep into the barrio for a game under the lights against Polilingo San Blas B on Sunday. They were greeted upon arrival by the strong scent of Lady Mary J and heavy bachata music and they suddenly knew they weren’t in Kansas La […]

On one of those days that remind the players why they live in Madrid, FC Britanico took to the pitch in Las Cocheras to rack up another dub and look good while doing it. As the starting XI got the match underway in ‘t-shirt weather conditions’ the big question among the substitutes was if anyone […]

Fines are back. The hierarchy have spoken and fines are back. Standards have dropped and results have been poor so fines are back. FC Britanico beat fellow promotion contenders Criollos four-nil in what is undoubtedly their best performance of the season. Fines are here to stay. The promise of the new year bringing a new […]

A balmy Sunday afternoon in the capital saw FC Británico line up against a new opponent. Madrid Olimpo hail from just the other side of the nearby M23 but had never crossed paths with FCB in their history. The team selected to face the side sitting in the bottom three consisted of a back four […]

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. As the winter sun shone down on Argayo, the normal post-match proceedings had begun. Joe Simmons wasn’t letting his sciatica stop him from having a good time and Dorus – standing on his own away from the rest of the squad eating a […]

A lot of noise was being made about this fixture. Quite literally, from the sideline, as the fellow high flyers Canillejas decided to come and watch Británicos and enjoy a few ales. They maintained a volatile relationship with striker H, initially with some abusive taunts that quickly changed tact when this was clearly having the […]
