Marco Madeddu has written a beautiful article on the Italian football website called Calcioesteronews about the difficulties that this Basque team has suffered since it was promoted to the First Division of the Spanish football league (La Liga). He explains the adventures in this “land of wolves” of a team representing a city (Eibar) with a population equivalent to about a quarter of the Camp Nou stadium.

We have followed with interest the fortunes of this team throughout the entire process. Since we know nothing about football, we did not analyze the accumulation of “coincidences” that had relegated Eibar to the Second Division (after a long match losing streak). But Marco Madeddu did analyze it, and he doesn’t seem to see it “so clearly”.

In the end, Eibar will remain in the First Division simply because Elche’s financial situation is not regularized. The article ends by saying that Elche’s relegation has brought a bit of “justice” to Eibar.

Even poetic justice, if we compare this small team’s financial health to the “disastrous financial situation” currently suffered by most of the teams in La Liga.

massimo campionato spagnolo; l’atmosfera è caldissima (come sempre), a tremare non sono solo gli spalti, ma anche i cuori di un popolo caratterizzato dal loro fortissimo senso di appartenenza: sono gli abitanti delle Euskadi, detto anche Paìs Vasco. Per una sera il primo pensiero non va alle situazioni politiche, ma solo al Derby. Questo è il massimo che può attendersi la regione delle Euskadi dal calcio: due compagini che sono riuscite a vincere in tutto dieci titoli nazionali (otto l’Athletic e due la Real) vincendone quattro di fila all’inizio degli anni ’80 ( “ ’81-’82 la Real, ’83-’84 l’Athletic) fermando il dominio delle due grandi di Spagna, Real Madrid e Barcellona.
