FCB ended a hugely enjoyable season against Banco de Espana at Urbis on a day that promised temperatures more likely to be found in the Empty Quarter of Saudi Arabia than on a football pitch in Europe. Despite the threat of their pallid complexions being turned a nuclear pink the lads were in great spirit […]

FCB started with a different lineup from their previous. Hutch, Ed, Macca, Rama and Callum made up the back line. The returning Calum Cant and Sean made up the centre with Luke and Luigi making up the rest of the diamond and Foxy and Joe being the main threats up top. The strategy was simple, […]

This week saw majid’s men take on bar Galicia Villaverde with a nine o’clock start in their home barrio. Watched by a decent crowd and preceded by a perfectly observed minute’s silence the boys started sluggishly with ponderous passes and morbid movement. As the Dundee express had pulled up with a recurrence of an old […]

The game started with the cry from the captain being “We owe these lads a horrible afternoon.” An unchanged back line started well and dealt with any incursions into their territory. Dave was attacking down the right-hand side with impunity and Dorus just gave him his space to do so. On one of his voyages […]

Continuing their tour of the parts of Madrid ‘donde cristo perdió la chancla’, FC Britanico were on the road in Villaverde on Saturday for an 11am match against the vastly experienced apertura winners Union Selección. Their mission spelt out in no uncertain terms by manager Rami before the match was to bring back the three […]

FCB started the game with aggression and purpose. Dave was getting in behind the defence with ease and sean was causing problems by cutting inside. It was a great start by the whole team. It didn’t take long for sean and Dave to link up and bang, 1-0. FCB kept up the pressure and soon […]

Another beautiful spring day, another 6:30 alarm and another Clausura game deep in a suburb the expats would otherwise have never laid eyes on. This week’s opponents were the somewhat confusingly named Guernika Fraher who before the match began sat one place behind the Brits and would have been confident of a home win going […]

Spring has finally arrived in the Spanish capital and FCB were in Vallecas taking on league toppers Bar La Piscina (who keen readers of these match reports will note were involved in a fiery encounter with the Brits the last time the two sides met in Getafe). Rami on his own this week elected for […]

Another sunny Saturday morning in Vallecas saw FCB facing second place holders Banco de España, a great opportunity to get closer to the top and close a disappointing first round with a win. It all started off on the wrong foot as Banco de España took the lead a few minutes into the game when […]

FCB started the match a bit jittery with passes going awry and nerves showing. They did not want a repeat of the 4-0 like the last time these two met. Bar Castillas’s passed it around the back, no surprises there but they didn’t seem to penetrate in the final third. FCB settled and began to […]
