Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas, one and all.

Getafe spanked Almeria 2-0 on Saturday evening, and David Belenguer has been called up to the Catalan national side to face the Basque Country on Saturday in Bilbao. Other than that, there's really not much news.

Oh, Oscar Ustari wants to leave. Valencia calling?

Getafe Top Group G After Anderlecht Win

Not even Bart Goor could rescue Anderlecht from the inevitable: Pablo Hernandez (man of the match) and Celestini netted the goals to put Getafe through thanks to a 2-1 win over the Belgians at the Coliseum.

Anderlecht still qualify, of course, along with Geta and Spurs, but that's a fine result and, more importantly, it puts Geta top of Group G with all matches having been played.

As such, the draw for the next round could prove more than favourable, although there are still some tough teams that could come out of the hat. We'll see.

Yuletide Redux

Time has been at a premium of late, but Getafe roll on:

Dec 6 - Getafe contrive to almost throw away an easily-gained 1-0 lead against AaB in Aalborg, eventually prevailing 2-1 in a game that was much harder than it had to be.

Dec 9 - Atletico Madrid squeeze through to the most undeserved win of the century at the Calderon with both Getafe and the hosts having two men sent off. Pato and Licht get reds for the good guys, while Reyes and Kun Aguero do so for Atleti.

Dec 10-13 - The Spanish disciplinary committee finish constructing their giant statue of Kun Aguero and, prostrating themselves below it, annul the Argentine's second yellow card, borne of a truly atrocious dive in front of Pato. As such, while the Geta goalie and Licht languish in the stands, Kun is free to face Recreativo on Sunday. The admittedly-gifted whippet then spends a fine afternoon in Huelva getting hacked left, right and centre as boos ring out around the Colombino. The hostile reception is due to the fact that the cheeky scamp scored via handball against Recre once in the past in an aincident that perhaps mirrored another deliberate* handball that took place against Getafe on December 9th.

Dec 12 - A heavily-weakened Getafe side scrapes past third-tier side Burgos 1-0 away from home in the Copa del Rey. Any visiting supporter may have been struck by the vast contrast between Burgos, a study in Spanish imperial opulence, and Getafe's own Calle de Madrid, a fine example of iron-shuttered suburban despair. But at least the latter has a good football team, so stick that in your pipe and smoke it, El Cid.

Dec 16 - Villarreal pap Getafe 3-1 at the Coliseum in a performance reminiscent of our early-season woes. Nihat ran rings around the Azulones, the midfield was off-colour, and it took Kepa Blanco of all people to pull one back for the hosts. Just when onlookers began to suspect that the former Sevilla man was a player - two goals in two games! - he promptly skied the penalty that could have given Getafe the path to an unlikely draw. Still, there's no point in blaming him for what was overall a very poor team performance.

Dec 18 - Marca claims that coach Laudrup wants a versatile defender who can play both left and centre in the January transfer window. Apparently the boss has no faith in Franck Signorino nor Manuel Tena, which would explain why the former only gets games in the cups and/or when everyone was injured and why the latter is on orange-slicing duty. No names have yet been mooted.

Heart-rendingly, Laudrup's dear old mum then emerges in the Danish press to relate a tale of how she, as an unmarried 16-year-old in conservative Denmark - almost had her firstborn aborted at her own mother's insistence, only to be saved by the kindly intervention of her dad, who claimed to be unable to find a back-alley abortion clinic. Cheerful stuff.

Later on Dec 18 - A very-much-unaborted Michael Laudrup names the following squad to meet Anderlecht:

Goalkeepers: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defenders: 2. Contra; 3. Cata Díaz; 4. Belenguer; 12. Licht; 19. Signorino.

Midfielders: 6. Celestini; 7. Mario Cotelo; 10. De la Red; 15. Nacho; 22. J. Casquero; 24. Pablo Hernández; 25. Granero; 42. Juanfran.

Attackers: 9. Braulio; 14. Manu; 17. Kepa.

Ikechukwu Uche was thought to be on the verge of recovery, but it seems as if he'll miss this game, while David Cortes and Francisco Sousa are also out.

It's more than likely that the side will be rotated, but with one point sealing passage to the next round, it may not be totally changed. Pato, for example, may take up position in goal after missing the weekend tie.

Anderlecht, meanwhile, have Bart Goor in their squad. He's a class act. The rest of them can go to hell.

Forza Geta!

*Aguero called it accidental as the world guffawed in disbelief.

Squad To Face AaB Aalborg

Here's the squad for tonight's game:

Goalkeepers: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defenders: 2. Contra; 3. Cata Díaz; 4. Belenguer; 5. Mario; 12. Licht; 19. Signorino; 21. D. Cortés.

Midfielders : 6. Celestini; 7. Mario Cotelo; 10. De la Red; 15. Nacho; 24. Pablo Hernández; 25. Granero.

Attackers: 9. Braulio; 14. Manu; 16. Albín; 17. Kepa.

Sousa and Casquero rested due to knocks, Uche still injured. Coach Laudrup will show up wearing a crown and sceptre - apparently he's still kind of a big deal in Denmark, on account of him being bloody brilliant as a player.

Geta, of course, won 2-1 against Levante at the weekend, Braulio scoring twice to effectively give the finger to his doubters (e.g. me.) Albin also did well, so those two may start again tonight, although as everyone keeps saying, the Liga's the priority.

Either way, that bloody stupid loss to Hapoel last week has made this a game that Geta really cannot afford to lose. A win could also see enough to see us through if Spurs lose to Anderlecht, but it looks like it'll really come down to next week, when the Belgians come to the Coliseum... assuming all goes well tonight, of course.

I don't even know, actually, the UEFA Cup's a bitch to figure out because of the staggered fixtures. The only certainty is that if we lose, the people of Aalborg will surely regard Laudrup as a child would Santa after being told that he isn't real.

Squad Announced For Hapoel Tel Aviv Match

Squad to meet Hapoel Tel Aviv:

Porteros: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defensas: 2. Contra; 3. Cata Díaz; 4. Belenguer;
12. Licht; 19. Signorino; 21. D. Cortés.

Centrocampistas: 7. Mario Cotelo; 10. De la Red;
11. Sousa; 15. Nacho; 22. J. Casquero; 24. Pablo Hernández; 25. Granero.

Delanteros: 9. Braulio; 14. Manu; 16. Albín; 17. Kepa.

Contra and Belenguer are back and fully fit, then, but there's no Uche, who is out for two to three weeks.

Still, that should be enough to see us past a singularly awful Hapoel outfit who are still bottom of the Israeli top division. True enough, they've started to turn it around a bit lately, and they've parted ways with their old manager... but, c'mon now. Home advantage? One loss in seven? Aye, it's all Geta here.

Oh, and the less said about the 1-1 draw with Zaragoza at the weekend, the better. We should have won that, but for Pato's error.

Squad for Zaragoza match

In a hurry so C&Ped:

Porteros: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defensas: 2. Contra; 3. Cata Díaz; 4. Belenguer;
5. Mario; 12. Licht; 21. D. Cortés.

Centrocampistas: 10. De la Red; 11. Sousa;
16. Albín; 20. Pallardó; 22. J. Casquero;
24. Pablo Hernández; 25. Granero.

Delanteros: 14. Manu; 17. Kepa; 18. Uche.

Belenguer and Contra back - that's the big news. Whether they actually start or not remains to be seen.

Zaragoza squad:

César, López Vallejo, Paredes, Óscar, Ayala, Aimar, Sergio García, D'Alessandro, Juanfran, Oliveira, Gabi, Celades, Zapater, Diego Milito, Chus Herrero, Goni y Valero.

That's right: 17 players. They have a bunch of injuries, Matuzalem and Sergio Fernandez being by far the most significant ones. There's still plenty of firepower there, though..

International round-up

A few Getafe players took part in recent internationals. Cosmin Contra missed out on Romanian international duty due to injury, but others flew the azulones' flag:

Esteban Granero started against Poland for the Spanish U-21s, being substituted early in the first half after a decent, if unspectacular showing. Miguel Pallardo sat on the bench throughout.

Pato Abbondanzieri was in goal for Argentina against Bolivia (3-0 home win) and Colombia (2-1 away loss.) He wasn't really at fault for either of Colombia's strikes.

Ikechukwu Uche played 78 minutes of Nigeria's 1-0 win over Switzerland.

And nobody got injured.

Copa del Rey

As I incorrectly posted last time around, Getafe faced a trip to Burgos for the Copa del Rey last week.

In fact, this was half-right. Geta do play Burgos in that competition, but not until December.

The first leg will be played on December 12th at El Plantío, with the return leg at the Coliseum taking place, apparently, on January 2nd.

In the meantime, a few Azulones have been away on international duty with various senior and U-21 sides, and I'll provide a full round-up of those after the midweek games are completed.

Getafe 2 - 0 Barcelona

Five wins from the last six? Beating Barcelona at home - again? Aye. Aye.

Geta started the better side and, barring letting Henry through for a miscued one-on-one, were the better team throughout the first half thanks to solid defending and an admittedly lacklustre display from the visitors.

It took Manu del Moral to give the hosts the lead; Cata Diaz was able to nod on a deep free kick from the left for Manu to get between the centre-backs and score (video).

The second goal was a long time in coming as Getafe continued to pass comfortably around their jaded counterparts. Still, Gianluca Zambrotta's sending-off for the blaugrana eased things considerably as Albin made it 2-0 (video).

The fringe player had to recover from a poor first touch to score unmarked after Uche's fine pass but, to his credit, he finished beautifully to kill the game off once and for all.

Aupa Geta! The Azulones are - for the time being - in 11th place with 14 points from a potential 36. Hardly a world-beating total, but after that dreadful start to the season it's good that the Coliseum is once again a fortress.

The international break has come at the wrong time for us in that regard, but here's hoping that the momentum remains for the Liga comeback in a fortnight.

Next up, though, is a trip to Burgos midweek for the Copa del Rey 1/16 round. More on that in the next update.

Squad Announced For Barça Match

Freshly nicked from the official club site, here is the squad for tomorrow night's match against Barcelona at the Coliseum:

Goalkeepers: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defenders 3. Cata Díaz; 5. Mario; 12. Licht; 21. D. Cortés; 23. Tena.

Midfielders: 10. De la Red; 11. Sousa; 15. Nacho; 16. Albín; 20. Pallardó; 22. J. Casquero; 24. Pablo Hernández; 25. Granero.

Attackers: 14. Manu; 17. Kepa; 18. Uche.

No real surprises there; Cosmin Contra's still out, but David Cortes is back and may replace Pallardo (who, incidentally, is a Spanish U-21 callup; more on that later.) Other than that, the lineup may be completely unchanged, more's the pity: it seems that Belenguer needs another (two) week(s) on the sidelines (due to the internationals.)

Anyway. Miguel Pallardo and Esteban Granero, take a bow, as the pair of them have been summoned for Inaki Saez's Spain U-21 squad. Here's hoping that they come back injury-free and richer for the experience. Neither is any stranger to the national setup, of course, and both are only here on loan, but it's good to see that they're gaining recognition.

Meanwhile, Ikechukwu Uche has told Marca that the team is in high spirits and will aim for the win. Well, he's hardly going to say anything else, is he? Nonetheless, there's no arguing with the wee chap: squad morale seems much, much higher now than it was a month ago.

Oh, and Barcelona have Gianluca Zambrotta back in the squad. No Eto'o, though, thankfully.

Laudrup To Messi And Iniesta: Get Bad AIDS

OK, maybe it wasn't quite that bad, but Getafe coach Michael Laudrup is certainly not keen not to see Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta line up at the Coliseum on Saturday.

The coach's mood has lightened considerably since Geta begun their recent run of winning form, and this manifested itself in the pre-Barcelona match press conference.

"Everyone's saying what a great player Ronaldinho is," he said. "The same goes for Xavi and Puyol. But, for me, the two have made a difference since the start of the season are Iniesta and Messi.

"Let's see if they catch the flu for Saturday, let's see if they catch a cold. Although, I doubt it, since they're having a great time in Barcelona."

By the standards of managerial interviews, that's Perrier-award winning stuff. Indeed, Geta fans haven't laughed quite as hard at something Barcelona related since our Azulones tonked the blaugrana 4-0 in the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg last season.

"A Cup match is different; this is the league," observed killjoy Laudrup as a giggling fit broke out in the front row.

"Last year's Cup match is something unique and, perhaps, will not happen again. It's not logical that a team like Getafe beats Barcelona 4-0.

"It's a good memory for us, but we need to keep our feet on the ground."

Still, he holds out faint hope of a repeat.

"Barcelona win everything at home - but not away. That gives us hope that we can score," he said.

He's not wrong. Barça looked kickass midweek at the Nou Camp against Rangers, which is all the more impressive since the Glasgow side make Real Murcia look like Brazil 1970 in terms of attacking flair.

(Laudrup himself is no stranger to Barcelona's style, having played for them for five wildly successful seasons in the early 90s.)

The boss closed by saying that David Belenguer is still not 100% fit, and he'll allow the capitán to decide for himself whether or not he's ready to play.

Osasuna 0 - 2 Getafe

It's now four wins in five for Geta and, more importantly, today's victory in Pamplona marks our first away victory of the season in the Liga, and second overall.

It seemed to be a largely even game in Navarre until Cesar Cruchaga fouled Uche in the box to give the Azulones a late penalty, which Pablo Hernandez struck home.

Two minutes later, Esteban Granero got a second that effectively ended the game as a contest.

That's a superb result but, sadly for us, Levante, Valladolid and Deportivo all won this afternoon, keeping things tight at the bottom.

However, Getafe are now out of the relegation zone with eleven points from eleven games. Recreativo or Athletic could jump us tonight but, even so, we'll be 15th at the absolute lowest.

But it's still a very close-run thing: only two points separate us from the dropzone, while six remain between Geta and 7th spot, i.e. the Intertoto Cup place.

Still, a fantastic result and one that ends our away jinx. AUPA GETA!

Quique Sacked By Valencia

Yes, yes, it's old news by now, but it's worthy of mention here, given that Quique Sanchez Flores enjoyed some fine times in charge of Getafe not so long ago.

Also, La Liga Loca has prepared a scathing indictment of Valencia - or at least their president - which you can (and really should) read by clicking here.

Getafe 2 - 0 Athletic Bilbao

That's the second 2-0 home win in a row in La Liga and our third win in four games in all competitions. Not too shabby!

Once again, it's important not to get carried away: just like Murcia a fortnight ago, Athletic were very poor. At lesat they came with something resembling a wing-based, attacking 4-4-2, but they seldom used it as Getafe strolled to a 2-0 first half lead.

Javier Casquero opened the scoring after 10 minutes, Kepa Blanco setting the midfielder up, and Javi duly took advantage of a goalkeeping error from Gorka Iraizoz to make it 1-0.

Uche should have made it 2-0 a few seconds later; he was to do so, eventually, but it was a long time in coming. Nobody knows that more than him, of course, but Ikechukwu Uche must be delighted to have got his first Liga goal for the club, and his first overall in the Primera since May 20th.

Like much else at Geta, it was down to Ruben de la Red, who won the ball and scooted past Aitor Ocio before setting the Nigerian up for the finish.

Athletic rallied a bit in the second period, but it was clear that Getafe had done enough to win. There was to be no repeat of the 4-2 loss at Mallorca: this time, the lead had come to stay.

The Azulones remain in the relegation zone, but now it's on mere goal difference...

Getafe - Athletic Bilbao

Things are just now kicking off at the Alfonso Perez in Round 9, and this is a game that Getafe really have to win.

The lineup:

Abbondanzieri; Pallardo, Mario, Cata Diaz, Licht; Pablo, Casquero, de la Red, Sousa; Kepa, Uche.

I assume that's the make-up of the midfield, anyway; Marca claims that Pablo's playing defensively but I would have thought that he's out on the right.

In any case... AUPA GETA!

Racing Santander 2 - 0 Getafe

A brief update for this one - I've been out of town for most of the weekend in order to attend a pagan festival centring on the worship of the statue of Desperate Dan in Dundee - to inform the readership of what they already probably know: Geta lost at El Sardinero.

Not for the first time, either; indeed, our Azulones have something of a habit of losing in Cantabria, and today was no different.

As Marca somewhat dramatically put it, "Eurogeta can't stand the Liga," and that does seem to be the case as Geta struggled to do anything with their embarassingly vast percentage of ball possession.

I've yet to see highlights of the game, so whether the problem really lies in the invention, I don't know, but from reading Marca's text commentary, I'd have to ask whether or not Uche really fits Laudrup's style of play, as he does seem to pass up a few chances each game, be they half chances or otherwise.

There's no point in crying over spilt Guiza but it remains to be seen where the weaknesses in the squad really lie - and let's face it, they are weaknesses. A 2-1 win over a beleaguered Spurs side who really should have at least equalised can't paper over the cracks.

Still, it's important to keep perspective. Despite flailing around in the relegation zone with five points, there are small signs of improvement, and Cata Diaz has proved quite a find to replace Alexis.

But to be in this position come December would be disastrous. The improvement needs to start anew, right now, in time for Wednesday's visit from Athletic. The Bilbao side drew 0-0 at home to Betis in the 'Nytol Invitational' on Sunday; without getting too cocky, this is a team that we should beat.

Tottenham Hotspur 1 - 2 Getafe

It could be a pub quiz question in future: what was Martin Jol's last game in charge of Spurs?

Step forward Getafe, for it was Super Geta that inflicted on him his final defeat as Tottenham boss, winning 2-1 in a close-fought and very, very nervy game at White Hart Lane.

In truth, the London outfit were on top for much of the encounter, particularly during the second half, but Getafe showed opportunism and character to pick up three vital and historic points in the UEFA Cup Group Stage.

All that said, Getafe started by far the brighter side, which made it a shock when Jermain Defoe made it 1-0 for the hosts 19 minutes in. The striker got on the end of a bobbling header from Berbatov and hit past Ustari for the lead.

But the ever-classy Ruben de la Red equalised just two minutes later, his former Real Madrid teammate Esteban Granero crossing in for the youngster.

The remainder of the first half was largely even but, as the second began, it was all Spurs.

Defoe, Malbranque, Berbatov - they all tried their luck, but against the run of play, Getafe managed an unlikely goal, and one that would end up sealing the three points.

It was former Atletico Madrid prodigy Braulio who jinked the ball home with precocious arrogance, the vastly-improved Cortes' right wing cross seeing the striker beat his marker.

Pato Abbondanzieri, on for Ustari at half time, was all at sea for the closing stages, and more than once Spurs might have equalised.

But somehow the ball stayed out, and the small band of traveling supporters were on hand to witness Getafe's second European victory in three matches and, one might say, by far their most impressive in terms of results.

Squad For Spurs Trip

The official club website has had the squad details for the UEFA Cup match at Tottenham Hotspur up for over a day now, but I was too lazy to put it up here until this point.

Here it is, anyway:

Goalkeepers: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defenders: 3. Cata Díaz; 4. Belenguer; 12. Licht; 19. Signorino; 21. D. Cortés.

Midfielders : 7. Mario Cotelo; 10. De la Red; 11. Sousa; 15. Nacho; 16. Albín; 22. J. Casquero; 25. Granero; 26. Juanfran.

Attackers: 9. Braulio; 14. Manu; 17. Kepa.

As usual, Laudrup's put together a midfield-heavy squad; then again, the actual playing squad simply is midfield-heavy.

Cosmin Contra's still out at the back, but the big news is that Franck Signorino's finally made it into the pool. I don't know if he'll displace Licht at left-back or not, but it's good to have an option there.

Celestini's been left out, but both Granero and de la Red are in the squad, while Albin could potentially play up front at a push.

But, above all, there is no Uche. He's hardly been prolific so far this season but that's a very notable omission; true enough, two of the other strikers are young guys, but do they really have the burst of pace that Ikechukwu has?

Assuming we're not pinned back into our own half by an ill-timed Spurs revival, we'll find out tomorrow night.

Sunday, 21 October 2007

Getafe 2 - 0 Real Murcia

Finally, a Liga win!

Marca reports that Getafe took to the pitch with gusto in an attempt to end their terrible run of form, but that Murcia contained them perfectly well for the first half without managing to threaten at all themselves.

It was only early in the second that Geta found some cutting-edge. Kepa Blanco opened the scoring after 54 minutes as he latched onto a Ruben de la Red cross to produce a great finish.

Casquero added another five minutes later, but Geta sat back after Kepa was sent off with 23 minutes to go for a needless kick at Alvaro Mejia.

Still Murcia could produce nothing, and Getafe deservedly won 2-0.

A clean sheet - excellent. A home win - double excellent. A sending off? Well, it could be worse, it could have been a more vital player than Kepa. But fair play to the ex-Sevilla kid; he started the season dreadfully but apparently his goal here was something special. Hopefully he'll come back from suspension stronger.

But let's not get carried away. Marca is quick to point out that this was Murcia's worst showing of the season by far, and for a side that failed to beat Levante, that's got to be saying something.

The Azulones remain in the relegation zone, but they're now four points clear of bottom spot and just two off the safety zone.

Squad Unrest, Or Podiatry?

The likes of Marca report that the squad had a private meeting in the dressing room prior to the Friday training session, leaving coach Michael Laudrup waiting alone on the training pitch for almost an hour.

As one user of Supergeta.com put it, the Dane was left tapping his feet "with a face like sour milk" as the first team players discussed a way out of their current predicament, emerging late for training only after their business was complete.

The Madrid media, needless to say, pounced on the story, prompting a club official to respond.

The official party line is that training was delayed by the visit of a podiatrist to the camp.

Quite why the manager would be forced to wait outside while his squad's little piggies were checked for irregularities wasn't made clear but, in any case, a couple of first team players have seemingly already said that there was no anti-Laudrup content in their rendezvous.

Be that as it may, from this fan's perspective, it's still not a good sign...

Squad For Murcia Match

Geta have announced the squad for tomorrow's home game against Real Murcia:

Goalkeepers: 1. Ustari; 13. Pato.

Defenders: 3. Cata; 4. Belenguer; 12. Licht; 21. D. Cortés; 23. Tena.

Midfielders: 6. Celestini; 7. Mario Cotelo; 10. De la Red;
11. Sousa; 15. Nacho; 20. Pallardó; 22. J. Casquero; 24. Granero.

Attackers: 9. Braulio; 14. Manu; 17. Kepa; 18. Uche.

No real surprises there; it's great to have Cata Diaz back and Cortes is at least a natural right back, if not a great one, so the defence looks a bit better now.

But there's still no Contra and no Signorino, and no Pablito Hernandez on the right hand side of midfield. Injuries can't be blamed for all Getafe's problems but the lack of fullback support to the attack can't be helping, so the sooner Contra returns and Signorino makes his debut (to see if he's better than Licht), the better.

LA LIGA: Getafe - Real Murcia

Getafe welcome Real Murcia to the Coliseum on Sunday afternoon for La Liga's 8th matchday of the 2007-08 campaign.

Los Azulones haven't won yet in the league all season, but Murcia are a team that they really should be able to beat.

Real Murcia, also known as Los Pimentoneros, were only promoted to the Primera this season, having last been relegated at the end of 2003/04.

It was that very same year that Getafe finished runners-up in the Segunda, taking them to La Liga for the first time: as such, it's been a long time since these sides met in a league match, and indeed this will be the first ever top-flight contest between the clubs.

But in terms of Segunda action, the teams last went head-to-head in 2002/03. The current Geta squad can take mixed omens from what occurred.

On Matchday 2, Murcia ran out 2-0 winners against Geta, but the Azulones got their revenge in Round 23, thrashing the visitors 3-1 at the Coliseum.

Curiously, of all the players who took part in these two matches for Getafe, only one remains in the first team squad now: Manuel Tena, although he isn't likely to start on Sunday.

Murcia's key dangermen this time around include Fernando Baiano, a big-money acquisition from Celta this summer, and Ivan Alonso, who finished their top league scorer last season in the Segunda.

They've taken 9 points from 7 games, Getafe having managed just 2.

The match kicks off at 17:00 local time this Sunday, 21st October.


Welcome to the Peña Getafense Escocia (Getafe supporters of Scotland) blog!

This blog was started due to the distinct lack of news relating to Getafe CF in the English language. As such, I hope to update this every few days with brief news, and the occasional viewpoint, pertaining to Primera Liga club Getafe CF.

For now, here are a few handy links:
Thanks for reading!
