"If you want some accessible but informative insight into football then I suggest you couldn't do better than the Political Economy of Football website, which is not only intelligible but comes with the added bonus of being written by Addicks fan Wyn Grant."

Club Atletico de Madrid SAD

Traditional Atletico Madrid football shirt

Atleti's early history began in 1903 when Athletic Club de Madrid was founded by three Basque students living in Madrid who saw the new club as a branch of Athletic Bilbao. In 1921 Athletic Madrid became independent of Athletic Bilbao and by 1939, post civil war when La Liga had resumed, Athletic merged with Aviación Nacional of Zaragoza to become Athletic Aviacin de Madrid. In 1941, a decree issued by Franco banned teams from using foreign names and the club became Atlético Aviacion de Madrid. In 1947, the club decided to drop the military association and settled on its current name. The club currently plays in the Primera División of La Liga and their home ground is the Estadio Vicente Calderón (capacity 54,851). The club has won both La Liga and the Copa del Rey on nine occasions, including a double in 1996. They also won the European Cup Winners Cup in 1962.
