After last week’s slumping 0-1 defeat at Levante, it seems that most of our enthusiasm and optimism has dissipated for this season. But wait…maybe it hasn’t? Oh! Look! Another bad/mediocre team is headed to Sevilla where we always win!
Marcoloco Bielsa and his lions come to town on Monday (ugh), so, you know, three points!
Sevilla is pretty much a mess right now, though, with our Europe chances still near enough to have the most fleeting hope of overcoming a current five point gap, but the only thing that will get us there is some away points. As has been pointed out, we’ve had miraculous closing stretches before (07-08, for one), but nothing about the current state of the team says that will happen again. So, management is saying “objectives still obtainable,” coaches are saying “objectives still obtainable,” and players are saying “objectives still obtainable,” but anyone who’s been watching lately can see we’re fairly listless. No lists at all. Ok, the pessimism is really starting to sink in so…
I’m going to pass the baton to our friend messioronaldo and see if he can’t inspire us to cheer on once more:
