Barcelona 1-1 Getafe

A stunning goal from Manu early on at Camp Nou put Getafe on course for an historic result against Barcelona, and although the match ended in a draw it was still an impressive point to gain, and one that ends Barça's nine-game winning run.

Manu del Moral's goal was a peach - a curling, swerving piece of excellence after an error from Gerard Piqué. Seydou Keita's equaliser, meanwhile, was an opportunistic but probably merited goal after a sweet cross from Alves (who, by the way, was left unmarked by Rafa - inexplicably placed on the left at the expense of Licht.)

In the end it was a deserved draw, even though we rode our luck towards the end.

Geta finish the weekend in 14th on 14 points. Depending on how Athletic get on we'll be either three or four points clear of the drop.

Video of the goal will be up when available.

No Longer Top Half

Well, we ain't.

But it's Barcelona tomorrow, and a probable defeat.

Let the good times roll!

Still Top Half

Heading into this weekend's away game at Recre, Geta remain obstinately top half - and this after the Marca reporter had the cheek to hint at relegation by saying we'd been overachieving for four years. (I hardly see how last season comprised overachievement, but ther eyou go.)

The problem here is that we've mostly had easy games so far against your Valladolids, Recres, Sportings, and very soon begins a harsh run of Valencia, Sevilla, Barça, Madrid, and Villarreal. To get three points from that lot would be an achievement, so suddenly getting three points at Huelva seems to be of utmost importance.

The B team, meanwhile, followed up their great start to the season with a six game winless run, which was finally overturned last week with a 2-1 win at Rayo Vallecano B.
