One Blog Fits AllBy: Paddy | March 13th, 2009
As I am in the middle of exam season at university I have not been able to take care of my baby, the Depor Blog, as much as I would have liked. If it was a Tomogochi it would probably be dead by now, and I feel like I must take at least some of the responsibilty for that. Unfortunatel this situation will continue for the next 12 days or so, but I will endeavour to keep brief little updates of results and important news and that on this post so if you’re interested this is the place to go.
Depor 5-3 Santander
A cracker this one, as the score line suggests, the introduction of Riki after half time was key and in 10 magical minutes, the best football Depor have played all season, we scored 4 goals. The win elevates us to joint 5th place in the table. Scorers were Juan Rodriguez, Riki x2, Angel Lafita and Joan Verdu
Next up a trip to Sporting de Gijon. Expect Goals…
Sporting de Gijon 3-2 Deportivo
There was goals alright but the wrong allocation. Two goals in four second-half minutes boosted Sporting Gijon’s survival hopes and dealt a blow to our Champions League dreams, but not a critical one.
Luis Moran and David Barral with the first of three penalties in the match put Sporting two up after 53 minutes.
Sergio Gonzalez halved the deficit from the spot only for Jose Angel Valdes to net Sporting’s third three minutes later.
Second-half substitute Riki converted a second Depor penalty four minutes from time, but we could not find an equaliser.
Depor are rumoured to be leading the race to sign Real Murcia’s young 19 year old striker Dani Aquino. A fee of around €6 million has being mooted in some quarters.
