Udinese take 3rd in Italy, and with it the final CL place. Inter finished 6th - will Stramo be given the job for the first few months of next season?
Just finished watching Montpellier vs. Lille. What an exciting game... and the winning goal was scored 4 minutes into stoppage time. Sound familiar? And Giroud--what a player! Ran half the length of the pitch, held off defenders, and passed the ball across the face of goal for the winning tap in. This has been an exciting year in football and Ligue 1 is no exception. One more week of football!
Auxerre relegated after 30 years in Ligue 1
Montpellier score in the last minute to claim a priceless win over Lille.
So close now. Just a point needed to achieve one of the great stories in Europe this season.
Still can't believe Villarreal got relegated. Their B team plays in la Segunda División so they get relegated too, which in turn relegates the C team. Triple relegation, in essence. This was a team in the Champions League, goddamn! Villarreal is gone and with their debt problem, we probably won't be seeing them again for quite some time. That's what they get for selling their best player, Santi Cazorla, as well as having poor luck with injuries (Rossi) and appointing an absolute moron as manager: Lotina. Let's have a look at this man's track record:
- relegated Villarreal, Villarreal B, Villarreal C
- relegated Deportivo de La Coruña
- relegated Real Socieded
- relegated Celta de Vigo
- almost relegated RCD Espanyol, saved on the last match of the season with a goal in the last minute of the injury time
How does this man have a job as a football manager?
His record is shocking and a moron as you put it but i don't think it really helped that he was their 3rd manager this season. Getting rid of Garrido, and then Molina after 3 months or so in charge and then getting Lotina to come and take over couldn't have done them any good. Then obviously they've had to deal with the loss of Rossi as well as losing Nilmar for a couple of months too.
I wonder if the likes of Angel, Diego Lopez and Gonzalo will go. All been there for a good 5 years or so. Diego Lopez would be a perfect signing for Atleti. Maybe they will get Courtois back for another season but Diego Lopez still has a few years left in him and would be perfect for a good 3 or 4 seasons. I would love him to go to Atleti.
Wow. Villarreal relegated!? Wow.
Admittedly I haven't followed spanish football at all this season.
With Villareal relegated, will Rossi leave?
I find it funny that Zapata's previous team has secured some form of CL qualification whilst his current team has been relegated. Talk about bad career moves.
