How do the Alaves fans think about Pitterman? He must be a fool, but he didn't do that bad in Racing and he's not doing bad in Alava.

Alavés fans are happy with Piterman, they still don´t trust much in him (can leave whenever he gets tired) but he´s bringing good players and the team is playing good football so... He has good taste, Alavés plays good football, it´s always easier if you have money but others have even more and keep on doing strange things; Atlético:dielaugh: or Elche..

Jardel was in Argentina, Newell´s right? but he didn´t almost play, apparently he´s out of form, let´s see if they can put him fit in Alavés, they´re doing a good job with Téllez, have you seen him lately? he is thinner.:eek: We should send Karanka to Gasteiz for a couple of months...:eek:

Bodipo, Rubén Navarro, Thiaw, Nené, Kiko, De Lucas and now Jardel, this is without doubt the best attack in Segunda. If Jardel doesn´t break the "good" atmosphere in the changing room he will be a good addition, as was Martín Palermo´s last season, if they had signed him before they´d have promoted.

If I understood well, Jardel is just on trial till June, he is not allowed to play this season. Piterman asked Cos about Jardel and he answered that they didn´t need him as they have too many players in that position, that´s why he is only on trial. On the other hand, from what I know, Alaves fans are very happy with Piterman on the field but not so much about the running of the club. They don´t approve the way he sacked some people and other decitions. Anyway good results are always the best remedy so...

I watched the Alavés 0-2 Recreativo this morning were Azkorra played well and scored a goal.

But the surprise of the great former Athletic strikers we have in segunda came in the afternoon when Mario Bermejo scored 4 of the 6 Racing de Ferrol goals against Almeria!:eekani:

Elche? They had a lot of problems when Kelme had cash flow problems. Now they don't depend on Quiles, as far as I know. Probably, Elche doesn't have the money that they had some years ago. Still Elche is one of the bigger cities of Segunda (200,000), but they don't have a big businessman backing them, as far as I know.

Maybe not this year (and they´re doing well) but Elche has always had one of the highest budget in Segunda, they have one of the biggest stadiums, they´ve always made teams to promote and they´ve always ended in middle table, underachievers.

That's for sure. Elche has potential to be in Primera, actually they've been more than 20 seasons in Primera. Before they had the support of Kelme though, Quiles put a lot of money there, but he ruined the team as he ruined his company.

I'm not a big friend of Elche, but I always prefer to see historical clubs in Primera rather than Numancias, Getafes or Albacetes. It seems that the football of Alicante is cursed since the 80s. It's sad to see Elche and Hercules (and Alicante CF, of course :D) in lower cathegories for such a long time.

Pontevedra 1-3 Alavés

The ones who continue playing great and doing wonders are Eibar that won today in Valladolid in another exhibition of good football, they continue in promotion places and are clear challengers to be in Primera next season.:hopefull:

Valladolid 1-2 Eibar

1 Celta 55
2 Eibar 52
3 Cádiz 49
-------------
4 Elche 48
5 Recreativo 47

Since Primera´s games arent´too important today let´s see how are things in Segunda.

After last week´s Eibar´s victory in the last minute against Sporting with a fantastic goal by Iñigo Vélez, in that game Eibar played the second half with 10 thanks to a horrible ref.:mad: Today we´re in the first minutes of the Recreativo-Eibar, just by looking to the table you´ll see the importance of this game.

This are yesterday´s scores in the fight for promotion.

Celta 2-1 Terrasa
Alavés 1-1 Córdoba

1 Celta 73
2 Alavés 73
3 Cádiz 68
---------------------
4 Recreativo 65
5 Eibar 65

Eibar needs to beat Recreativo, actually both teams need to win to have chances although there are still 12 points to be played. Eibar has the goal average in favour against Cádiz.

Eibar is playing this lineup:

Code:
             Iraizoz

Cifu     Alaña    Karmona  Manuel 

        Garitano   Moises   

Varela         Silva       Suárez

             Iñigo Vélez
Joseba Llorente is sanctioned and Gaizka Garitano is playing with a broken finger.

0-0 by now in 11th minute. Azkorra is playing as starter in Recre.

0-0 at halftime, it´s not being a great game but it´s interesting, both teams are playing to the limit. If there´s one thing I like about Mendilibar´s Eibar is that all the players fight for every single ball.

Iñigo Vélez is demonstrating some good movements and ideas although the fact that he´s being injured most of the season makes him be a bit slow on certain plays, but he´s doing well.

final: 0-0

how unfair!!! Recreativo had some chances in the beginning but the rest of the second half was clearly for Eibar, they had a lot of chances, one clear penalty to Varela the ref didn´t want to see, another doubtful to Kike Mateo he didn´t see either and that last chance by Iñigo Vélez, completely alone...:( damn!

Great!

Cádiz 0-0 Ciudad de Murcia

Eibar still have chances, 3 points from Cádiz and goal average in favour for the armeros, 9 points to play. Aupa Eibar! they deserve the promotion.

yesterday:

Nástic 1-0 Alavés

With winning the gasteiztarras were in Primera, they´ll have to wait one more week if Eibar and Recreativo don´t loose.

Pontevedra 1-1 Cádiz

Good score for Eibar although it could have better since Pontevedra had a lot of chances to win the game. Anyway, if Eibar wins today they´ll be only 1 point after Cádiz with 6 points to be played. Eibar plays in an hour against a Murcia that doesn´t fight for anything although I´m sure they´ll have a good bunch of € from Cádiz and Huelva.;)

Eibar 1-0 Murcia:cool:
Lleida 2-3 Recreativo

Great win for Eibar, this can´t get more interesting, the goal was scored by Iñigo Vélez btw, looks like he´s on a good moment after the injury.

Sad Recreativo ended winning, Lleida came back from a 0-2 but then Recre scored the third.

1 Celta 73*
2 Alavés 73
3 Cádiz 70
------------------
4 Recreativo 69
5 Eibar 69


Next week:

Elche - Alavés
Recreativo - Almería
Celta - Eibar
Cádiz - Terrasa


Celta is playing right now (1-2 up at halftime), if they win they´re already a primera team so probably next week they wouldn´t be as motivated against Eibar...


BTW, 2 goals today for Aritz Aduriz in his comeback after the long injury during Valladolid´s 2-1 victory against Poli Ejido, zorionak Aritz.
