Diego in, Salvio and Domínguez out?

Is he in or is he out? That’s the question Atlético supporters have been posing since the final whistle blew at the end of the season with regard to unanimous fan favourite and playmaker Diego. With the midfielder’s one-year loan from Wolfsburg having expired, his future has been the subject of rampant speculation throughout the

Atlético’s forward shuffle

Despite the latest rumours suggesting Barcelona are negotiating for Atlético superstar striker Radamel Falcao, it seems the Rojiblanco faithful can rest assured ‘El Tigre’ and attack partner Adrián – also the subject of occasional Barça-bound speculation – will be back to defend their Europa League title next season and once again vie for a place

In Luis Amaranto Perea’s last night in red and white, los Rojiblancos defeated Atlético Huila 3-1 at the Guillermo Plazas Alcid Stadium in Neiva.

Atlético Madrid have won their second in a series of friendlies in Colombia. On Saturday the Spaniards beat América de Cali 2-1, with goals by Radamel Falcao and Eduardo Salvio.

The red and white aftermath: Week 34

Atlético, rather surprisingly given their tendency to zone out in La Liga following midweek Europa League play, put on a vigorous display against Espanyol to keep the party alive on the way to their third consecutive victory. Sunday’s match, sandwiched between our semi-final fixtures versus Valencia, was more of the same razzle-dazzle carried over from

The red and white aftermath: Week 31

Atlético never recovered from their atrocious start against Levante. Faster than it takes Godín and Miranda to run five yards, Atleti were already at a disadvantage. We immediately knew what was in store for us after one minute of action on Sunday and, though it really came as no surprise, Koné’s goal in the 10th

Atlético followed-up on their midweek Europa League success with another treat for those fortunate souls in attendance at the Vicente Calderón. Sunday’s visitors met the same fate as the previous opponents that showed up to our stadium in bright yellow kits: a 3-0 thrashing. Though Getafe came out of the gates swinging, a fluky Eduardo

La Liga: Atlético 3 – 0 Getafe

After an equal first half Atlético brushed aside Getafe with a strong second half performance. We beat our neighbours 3-0 with goals by Salvio, Diego Ribas and Falcao. According to Diego Simeone, Atleti’s tight schedule is no excuse not to give our all, but the coach did decide to rest some of his key players.

Europa League: Atlético 2 – 1 Hannover

Atlético Madrid got a narrow win over Hannover 96 in the quarter-finals of the Europa League. The home side dominated the first leg of this double encounter, but finished poorly and let in an easy goal. It was because of a fantastic strike by sub Salvio that, at the very end, we got away with
