One Goal Keeps Getafe Up!

We did it. Salvación.

A 1-1 draw at Racing Santander on the final matchday of La Liga proved enough for Getafe to stay up, for Real Betis failed to overcome Valladolid in Seville. That sees the two sides finish level on points; an equal head-to-head means that it comes down to goal difference, wherein Getafe's -6 beats Betis' -7.

It's been a hell of a wild ride, but, dammit, we deserved to stay up, and we've done it. Now the hard work begins. It's up to the club to harness the good feelings of today and build a project worthy of Liga survival next season. It looks like Míchel will be at the helm. Based on his tenure so far, he deserves it.

After a weekend - no, a week - of preoccupation, I can finally breathe. And with my first exhalation comes the shout - AUPA GETA!
