Getafe 2-0 Athletic Bilbao

A routine win against a very poor, and ten man*, Athletic Bilbao side. Soldado opened the scoring with a a rather lucky goal before Dani Parejo converted a penalty after a clear Athletic handball. Gurpegi was sent off in the first half for the visitors, and it was all Geta from there.

It's hard to read too much into today's result as Athletic, even with eleven men, weren't up to much, but three points is never to be sniffed at.

Next up: Copa del Rey action at home to Espanyol on Wednesday.

*actually nine man for the last minute after Ustariz's straight red

Esteban Granero Wants €600,000 From Getafe

According to As, Esteban Granero's father has emerged in the press to say that his son wishes to collect the 15% of the Getafe-Real Madrid transfer fee owed to him. Apparently Granero waived this sum when moving back to the Bernabeu as he was in line for a massive pay increase, but now wishes to collect, having never formally relinquished his right to it.

Angel Torres, naturally, implies that Granero's had his chance. This one's likely to run and run, but unless Geta managed to get it in writing that Esteban had legally surrendered his claim, it looks like they'll need to pay up...

Mallorca 3-1 Getafe Video

Unlike Barcelona we can't so readily blame the 'FIFA virus'. Instead this was just a bad day at the office with no ability to carve out chances despite seeing plenty of the ball. A worrying result.

Getafe 2-1 Osasuna Video

We beat Osasuna again. (Do we get to keep them?) A fine, fine late goal from Pedro Leon settled matters at the Coliseum, and we well deserved it.
