    Võib öelda, et turult hangiti parim saadaval olev mees püsimajäämise jaoks - Abelardo.

    Tagantjärele targana võib tõesti öelda, et lahkunud võtmemängijate (Mario Hermoso, Borja Iglesias) asendamisega üleliia edukalt hakkama ei saadud, aga Espanyoli õnneks on Abelardo tuntud kui mees, kelle peamiseks trumbiks on see, et ta suudab meeskonna väga kompaktseks ja võitluslikuks muuta.

    Ilmselt vaadatakse jaanuaris ka meeskonna tugevdamise poole. Nimedest on läbi käinud näiteks Lazios palliv Jony Rodriguez, keda Abelardo varasemast väga hästi tunneb.. aga samuti näiteks ka Hulk, keda loodetakse hooaja lõpuni laenule saada.

    Huvitavad uudised seoses Espanyoliga. Kui viimasel ajal on tavaks saanud liikumine Euroopast Hiinasse, siis kunagine kohalik Maradona on leidnud tee Hispaaniasse. Meeskonnal vaja turgutada rünnakut, mis viimase kaheksa vooru jooksul neli korda nulli peale jäänud.

    Ajaloo esimene hiinlane La Ligas, 2015/16 Rayos laenul olnud Zhang Chengdong sai põllule vaid ühes kohtumises. Loodetavasti läheb sellel härral paremini.

    Härra lõpetas debüüthooaja 16 mängu, kolme värava ja ühe väravasööduga. Tänane viigivärav Barca vastu tõstis selle hooaja väravasaagi liigas kahe peale, ühtegi söötu pole. Ei ole just hiilgav täiendus olnud. Kuigi, jah, sel hooajal ka meeskond tervikuna mängimas väga kehvalt. Kodus pole isegi mitte ühtegi võitu saadud.

    Euroopas hoog täiesti teistsugune. Võiks ju ära teha sellise triki, et kukub esiliigasse, aga mängib end uueks hooajaks Euroopa liiga kaudu Meistrite liigasse.

    Algupärane Leidsin 'toreda' artikli selle kohta kui raske/mõttetu on olla Espanyol'i fann:

    Espanyol call themselves the "marvellous minority," but most of the time, there's very little to marvel over. They have a hated rival, but their rivals can't even be bothered reciprocating. This is the football club that doesn't exist, or at least that's the way they're made to feel sometimes. FC Barcelona are "more than a club" according to their slogan; the city of Barcelona is more than a club given that Espanyol play there, too, just three miles from the Camp Nou, but nobody notices, let alone cares.

    Barca cast a mighty shadow, and it's dark and miserable in there.

    Espanyol's history goes back 119 years. A founding member of the league, only four teams have spent more seasons in primera, and in a cumulative table they would be seventh all-time, but they've never won it or really been close. Their neighbours, meanwhile, have won it 26 times, plus 30 Cups and five European Cups. Espanyol have won only four trophies in history (four Copa del Reys). Barcelona are 90 ahead. No one has more European titles than Barcelona; Espanyol got to two finals and lost them both. In 1988, they arrived in Leverkusen having won the UEFA Cup final first leg 3-0 and still didn't win, going down in a penalty shootout that defines them. Or so it goes.

    It was late and the newspaper La Vanguardia had already printed front pages about Espanyol's victory, which had to be binned, but some got their hands on them. "Sometimes I look at that and I sigh," says writer Enric Gonzalez. He writes about Espanyol as having a faith born of failure. It is rooted in "the existential void of those who suspect, with good reason, that God abandoned them forever," he says. Ernesto Valverde, the former Barcelona and Espanyol manager, who was on the bench the night they lost the UEFA Cup, says: "There's a part of the character, influenced by Leverkusen, that says, 'We're going down this year.'"

    The worst thing is that this year they might, too. They're dead last, with 18 points from 23 games and a goal difference of minus-21. Goodness knows they're miserable now.

    "It can seem like the whole of Barcelona is Barca, but that feeling for Espanyol is very deep in some places," Valverde says. Yet the eclipse can feel total; it can feel deliberate too, or at least self-perpetuating. Few in positions of power or celebrity rush to identify themselves with Espanyol or take a seat in their directors' box instead of the one at the Camp Nou. In 2013, the city's famous Christopher Columbus monument was dressed in a Barcelona shirt, pointing out to sea; no one would ever have contemplated putting him in blue-and-white, and why would they? Espanyol felt left out, ignored, but it was nothing new. (Better yet, those responsible for putting the jersey on the statue paid the Barcelona city council for the ability to do it ahead of the derby.)

    "Espanyol's fans feel trodden on; they are supporters who lived pushed aside by media, in the street ... they make us invisible," former coach Quique Sanchez Flores says.

    Espanyol vs. Barcelona is not a rivalry like Atletico and Real Madrid, not least because it is not much of a rivalry at all, which is even worse. The last time Espanyol finished ahead of Barcelona was almost 80 years ago, and no one expects them to ever do so again; their budget is one-12 the size of their neighbours. At times in Barcelona, it can seem like no one at all supports Espanyol. Sarria, their spiritual home, is long gone. They spent over a decade at Montjuic, feeling like they're in exile. Now they have moved out of the city, prompting Gerard Pique to pointedly call them Espanyol de Cornella, not Barcelona. That stung, but at least there was some rivalry there, some attention. The rest of the year, there isn't.

    "When I was very young at school, there were 40 kids and of those that really liked football, only one supported Espanyol: me," says Carlos Maranon. His father was one of the club's best players ever, he played in the youth system there, and he is now the editor of Cinemania magazine. He likens Espanyol to two literary figures brought to film. "There's something of Don Quixote about them," he says, "And then there's Asterix: this idea of a tiny force resisting."

    Espanyol is not a small club. There are 30,000 members. They are preparing for the Europa League round of 32. That said, the joy was instantly removed when their manager (Pablo Machin), key centre-back (Mario Hermoso) and best centre-forward (Borja Iglesias) all left, leaving a relegation battle behind. Typical.

    There is a kind of perverse pleasure in that status and this misery. On Dec. 27, Abelardo Fernandez arrived at the RCDE stadium on a mission to rescue them from relegation, their third manager of the 2019-20 season alone. "Maybe I'm a masochist," he said of joining Espanyol. He'll fit right in. -- Sid Lowe

    Espanyol on kahjuks selline poliitiline nimi. Eriti veel RCD Espanyol ehk Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona ehk tõlkes siis kuninglik Barcelona spordiklubi Espanyol (mis tähendab "hispaanialik, hispaania"). Nüüd panna seda poliitilisse konteksti kus katalaanid püüavad iseseisvuda jne...
    Catalunya is not Spain!
