Mejia Leaves......The Scud has more suiters

News today is that Alvaro Mejia has departed Real Murcia for Avignon in the french first division. This was always going to be the case as he was one of the high earners. Mejia has been hit and miss....he arrived from Real Madrid for the 07/08 season in primera, and has seen 2 relegations in 3 seasons. The last 2 seasons he has been singled out of harsh treatment from the referees, who seemed to be on his case permanently. Not a game went by without a "light" foul being punished with a yellow. 105 games for Real Murcia, many as captain. Good luck Alvaro.

Sergio Escudero...may not be on his way to Deportivo La Coruña. Rumours are that Shalke 04 from the Bundesliga, Plus Real Madrid and Valencia are also interested in his services. Great......the price agreed with Coruña (1,8 million euro) should be increased due to the demand. If we get to 4 million it covers the budget....

  1. Although I am saddened by the plight of Murcia & what seems to be the imminent departure of Sergio Escuderoif we could perhaps get 4 mil for him then that is very good business for the club & hopefully secure us for this season.On another note I am glad I stumbled across this site as it's good to talk or write in English to other people,no one really knows much about the Spanish lower leagues over here so thanks very much for this site.

  2. Think that 4 million is wishful thinking on my part......will be more like 2 million, but nevertheless much needed and welcome. Shalke 04 (who just signed Raul) looks most likely.

    Where is "over here"? UK? Hopefully we won't be lower leagues for too long! Thanks for your comment.

  3. Yes over here is the UK. I agree,the fans deserve something better for their continued support.Here's to a successful season for the lads. I will be at the Alicante game on the 17/08 as on holiday then.
