Real Betis use Manga and Anime to unveil Takashi Inui signing

Real Betis have announced the signing of Japan international Takashi Inui on a free transfer from La Liga rivals Eibar. But they've got very creative to do it. 

Betis drew on the inspiration from Manga and Anime to reveal the arrival of Takashi on Twitter. Several characters from Manga, including the dragon from Dragon ball, are seen in the video before Super Mario Brothers show up at Takashi's home to hand him a Doraemon soft toy, which has a Betis jersey inside that the player pulls out to...

Suarez, Alba strike as Barcelona prepare for Chelsea by edging past Eibar

EIBAR -- Three quick thoughts on Eibar 0-2 Barcelona in La Liga on Saturday afternoon.

1. Barca prepare for Chelsea test with victory

Barcelona returned to winning ways in La Liga on Saturday with a 2-0 win away at Eibar but you could see why Ernesto Valverde would have preferred an extra day to recover from this one, with Tuesday's Champions League game against Chelsea in mind.

Eibar were the better side for large chunks of the game -- especially in the early stages -- but were undone by the space...

Barcelona awarded ridiculous penalty vs. Eibar as Jordi Alba trips himself up

Not that it was enough to prevent Real Madrid from winning their first La Liga title since 2012, but Barcelona came from two goals down to beat Eibar 4-2 in their final match of the campaign.

While undeniably dramatic, the game didn't pass without controversy as Barca, still trailing at the time, were awarded one of the most farcical penalties of this or any other season in the 70th minute.

Indeed, referee Alejandro Jose Hernandez deemed there to be sufficient contact on Jordi Alba to warrant a...

La Liga at halfway: Atletico Madrid, Barcelona stellar, Real Madrid flounder

James Rodriguez screeched into training pursued by the police, having raced round the M40 at 200 km/h. Karim Benzema was charged for his part in a blackmail case and banned from the France squad. Rafa Benitez was sacked, 13 days after the president said he would not be sacked. They were kicked out of the Copa del Rey for fielding an illegible player. And now they've been handed a FIFA transfer ban, denying the president's annual moment in the sun -- six months after 2015's moment was denied to...

Real Madrid must avoid complacency when hosting struggling Eibar

Like a lot of sides in Spain, SD Eibar play a little ditty before the team emerges from the tunnel. Most clubs have their anthem, Real Madrid's being "Hala Madrid," belted out by Placido Domingo before matches. Atletico's is not dissimilar but has a slightly more military tempo, while Barcelona's is liable to make the hairs on your neck stand to attention when the fans at Camp Nou are in full voice.

My football team, Charlton Athletic, used to play Robbie Williams' "Let Me Entertain You" before home...

James stars, Suarez eclipses Neymar: Five things we learned in La Liga

James Rodriguez has led the way for Real Madrid since returning from injury.

In a midweek round of fixtures in which James Rodriguez continued to shine in his Real return, Luis Suarez's star has eclipsed Neymar's. Here's what we learned in La Liga.

James is back

Cristiano Ronaldo scored again (his 300th goal in 288 games for Real Madrid), but most striking in Los Blancos' 2-0 win at Rayo Vallecano on Wednesday night was the display of James Rodriguez, who looks to have returned after two months out injured full of drive and hunger.

During the opening 45 minutes, when Rayo...
