Third worst streak in the league in the history of Athletic

first_imgThe Cup is the salvation table of a season that begins to be like a toothache. This Athletic can go down in history as the one that regained the path of the titles (the important ones, since the 2015 Super Cup is a minor success) but also as the one that registered the third worst streak of games without winning in the League: they are ten without adding three hit points, the same lot as with Iribar as coach in the 1986-87 campaign. And they only overcome this embarrassing ranking the 11 days of the 2005-06 campaign (this time it was with two technicians, since Mendilíbar was stopped and followed the Clemente guideline). And then there is the top of Berizzo last year, with 13 games without winning. Garitano tries to break this dynamic that is projected since December 1, when the lions were imposed on Granada 2-0. At this time, he has been defeating five times (against Betis, the first and the four in a row that he accumulates at the close of this fatal series: against Getafe, Real Sociedad, Osasuna and Alavés). And many other ties, all concatenated: against Eibar, Madrid, Sevilla, Celta and Espanyol.They have amassed only five of the last 30 points. The dramatic thing is that in the stumbling blocks against Osasuna and Alavés the opponent did not do much, he just waited for the mistake of an Athletic with three centrals although he needed to be ambitious.Gaizka Garitano is at his worst as a rojiblanco coach, confessed by himself. The descent is nine points. He is running out of that credit that President Elizegi granted him a week ago. In addition, an eternal shadow pursues him. In the 2014-15 campaign when he was leading Eibar, his only complete campaign with a First club to date, he had 27 points in the first round and even dreamed of Europe.The second was a drama: he scored eight points and four of them were in the last two days, with a draw against Getafe and a win against an evicted Cordoba. It was not worth anything, since it only got rid of the decline due to the administrative fall of Elche.last_img read more
