Espanyol, on the wire at 26 years in a row in the First

first_imgWas the April 23, 1994, in the middle of the Diada de Sant Jordi, when Espanyol claimed their last promotion, with a 4-0 against Cádiz in Sarrià. Since then, it adds 26 uninterrupted years in First, a feat that they have only emulated Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Athletic Club and Valencia, since the rest of the teams have dropped at least once in this long quarter of a century. But the parakeets’ milestone is in danger as ever (with permission from Coro’s goal). With Raúl I hold maximum icon of this long stage on the field of play, in the offices the situation is fortunately very different from what was experienced in 1994, with internal fights and a trainers dance even higher than in the following decades, with only 18,000 members (approximately 50 percent less than now) and with a debt in absolute terms very similar to the one that will remain after the current capital increase, about 30 million euros, but that for the value of the time led to the sale of Sarrià and is now considered as an acceptable quantity. The key is not to descend, of course.And while Espanyol accessed Europe three times through its classification (two others were for having conquered the King’s Cup), such as last year or the extraordinary fourth place of the 1995-96 season, until seven times he really suffered to save the category: 1996-97, 2002-03, 2003-04, 2005-06, 2008-09, 2012-13 and 2015-16. Some, needless to say, saved by the bell. The big question that all parakeets are asking right now, in a long uncertainty due to the coronavirus, is if they can blow out the candles of the 27 years uninterrupted in First.

In these 26 years, the parakeet has disputed 985 games in LaLiga since that last promotion, with 332 wins, 271 draws and 382 losses. Or what is the same, 1,253 points. And in three stadiums different.last_img read more
