Show Me My Rival.....
Music : I was trying to find "My Rival" from Steely Dan's "Gaucho", but can't find it anywhere. So instead.....title track....enjoy.
With just 7 games to go, the situation at the top of each of the 4 divisions of Seguna B becomes interesting as we look forward to possible rivals in the play-offs.
In group 1 : Lugo 64 pts, Real Madrid B 58, Uni Las Palmas 56, Guadalajara 54. Other that may play a part : Leganés on 53 and Celta B on 51. Lugo have been ahead for a long time, but had their lead reduced by 3 points this week and still have to visit Real Madrid B. Knowing how Spanish football works, the rival I don't want in any play off is Madrid B. Barcelona B are in segunda.....and a B derby in segunda will be what all the sheep (and the authorities) will want. Would we trust the refs to be fair?
Group 2 : Eibar on 59, Mirandés 59, Alavés 58, Real Unión 52, plus maybe Osasuna B with 50, Logroñés 49, Palencia 48. A trip to Eibar or any of the Basque teams is unattractive. They can make a visit hell, small, tight grounds, angry, unwelcoming, so would prefer no to be paired with any of these.
Group 3 : Sabadell on 54, Badalona 53, Alcoyano 52, Orihuela 51, them San Andres 49, Alicante 49. I fancy our chances against any of the teams at the top in this division, also travel will be easier, and in some cases not very far to go and we would take massive support.
