My name is Steven Cordero. I'm 17 years old and currently attending high school in Brooklyn, NY. I'm of Ecuadorian decsent, though my ancestry traces back to Spain. I'm a huge sports fanatic, I can watch almost any sport. I have a wide range of favorite teams and athletes. The leagues I follow thoroughly are MLB, NFL, NBA, La Liga, and the English Premier League.
The New York Giants are my favorite football team, I can thank my father for raising me as one. I try to watch every game, every week.
The New York Mets are my favorite baseball team, my grandfather made sure I became a Mets fan, as I would always watch their games with him.
The Los Angeles Lakers are my favorite basketball team. I sort of found my way to them on my own, I was never pushed to be a Knicks fan, and the Lakers were always on TV. Soon after Kobe Bryant became my favorite player, and I've been loyal ever since.
My favorite soccer (football) team is FC Barcelona. I can thank my grandfather again for making me into a huge Barca fan. I also support Manchester United (though no where near to the same extent as Barca), my father has followed them in recent years and much of my extended family are fans of United, so I hold a soft spot for them. Other clubs that I watch when I can and support are the New York Red Bulls and Barcelona Sporting Club. I also support the U.S. Men's, Ecuadorian, and Spanish National Football Teams.
I also watch college football and basketball, but I support no team/school in particular. Though I do root for the Big East in general.
I also watch Tennis when the Grand Slams come around each year. Rafael Nadal is my favorite player.
I'm not much of a hockey guy, but I guess I consider myself a supporter of the New York Rangers.
Hey Steven! Haven't heard from you in a while, amigo. I was beginning to think I scared you off or something haha.
To answer your question in brief, my money is on Valencia and Atletico, but watch for Sevilla to surprise people.
If you have time, check this article out since I go into the entire league table a bit:
I'll be updating this on a monthly or bi-monthly basis as well.
Thanks for becoming a fan man.
Hi Steven. I think Barça needs to try and persuade Borussia Dortmund for Mats Hummels, but it's almost impossible. They should probably go with either Marc Bartra or Marc Muniesa.
Thanks for the fan add, Steven. Much appreciated!
Here is the last part of my season review:
Hope you enjoy. :-)
Hello Steven. I doubt Van Persie, Bale or Hazard will be coming to the Camp Nou. Too expensive and I believe this is the year that the defense gets rebuild. Look for Jordi Alba to move to Barcelona. Marc Muniesa will slowly move into the regular formation along with Martin Montoya (who is the eventual replacement for Dani Alves). Don't be surprised to see Barcelona go after Iñigo Martínez from Real Sociedad as well. He is a good young defender and would be much cheaper than Thiago Silva or Mats Hummels.
I hear the same rumors about Neymar as well. I could see him being there next year but only if he demands Santos to move him early. Another player that could come to Barcelona is Lucas Ocampos as I mentioned in my previous article.
I will hit on who's out soon in another article I am working on.
Thanks for the comments Steven. Hit me up anytime.
Visca el Barça!
Here is the weekly review for La Liga:
Hope you enjoy. :-)

I'm starting a new series this week. Here is my latest:
Hope you enjoy it!
Thanks a lot, Steven! Glad you like La Liga. I will continue to write about the league that deserves more attention in the States.
Sorry, I said almost because when I went to my fan you're name disappeared. I assumed you became a fan and then decided better of it haha. Glad to see you're sticking with me ;-).
I actually have a new one out right now. Feel free to check it out and comment:
