Well, this was pretty much our last chance, and we blew it. No passion at all in our game.

There isn't a lot more to say really...

That wasn't our last chance...our chances were over anw.

But after those defeats we finally got a draw, this is sth...Now let's start preparing for the derby (while in the meantime send the c-squad at barca)

I disagree. Had we won tonight, we would've narrowed the gap to 6 points. You never know what could happen then.

Let's face it: we already are back at Segunda

Chances of staying up might still have been slim even if we had won but let's face it, they're a lot slimmer now. Rayo at home was a fixture we should definitely have been looking at for the full points.

The most disturbing thing for me is that for most of that game, we didn't look like a team that wanted to do whatever it had to, to avoid the drop. I just didn't see the passion, the will to win and the "roll up your sleeves" mentality needed in a relegation dogfight. Looks to me like some players are just going through the motions, especially in the 1st half.
We were better in the 2nd half but we could and probably should have been dead and buried by halftime but were left in with a chance because of some poor finishing by their strikers (mostly Lass Bangoura)

I remember Wigan what did last season in EPL. Zaragoza, Osasuna & Espanyol they did miracles to survive...

But i don't see this happen with this Depor...we played like we are in 10th place & we can't go to Europe.. there is no fighting spirit... Riki's injury was bad for our attack

lets prepare for next season... we need to start looking for players... in every position...

The good news is that the Portuguese players will give 100% against R.madrid and Barca, so we should get a decent game out of them.
Its all good saying we should be beating a team like Rayo at home, but Rayo are a bloody good team, who could have beaten us 1-4 today!
All we can do is hope that Laure, Kaka, Marchena and Riki are ready for the Celta game. If we can get a draw at Barca, who have been struggling of late, and a win against Celta .. then its game on again.
Its not gonna be easy, but if we lose the next two games, its adios to Primera for us.

Agreed, let's bring in Luis Fernandez or a couple of the Fabril kids against Barca. Explain to them that after Barca, everyone else will be easy! Maybe they can shoot straight!

Didn't see the game, so I'll keep my comments brief.

1. Oliveira seems to be out of favour now. In any case, using Salomao before him yesterday will have upset him greatly and I don't expect any effort from him for the rest of the season. With Riki injured (and I mentioned this in the pre-game thread), we're screwed now in an attacking sense.
2. Surprised that he played Assuncao and Aguilar. I'd rather see us playing with Alex and JD from now on. They're Galician and proud. Plus, they're gonna be with us next season.
3. Although Vallecano are one of the top teams in La Liga in the possession stats, conceding 62% to them in the Riazor is suicide. More, it shows weakness and the frightened/negative mentality of the coach. This obviously filters down to the team and just when the battles cries need to echo loud and clear around the Riazor, we surrender the ball and whatever was left of our dignity.

It did seem to me like Fernando Vazquez gave Nelson a serious kick in his behind. When he come on yesterday, he did run a lot and actually chased the ball down for once. Should've come on a lot sooner imo, cause Salomao was completely lost going forward, and blew the one chance we got. Imo, it was crazy to play without striker for an entire hour when we had to win this game. Nelson should've come on at half-time, since we clearly were lacking men upfront.

No offense to Vazquez, but tactically this game was a disaster, considering the circumstances. First of all, as I said earlier, we were lost in attack without a striker. And second, our pressure-system was atrocious. We were camping in our own area for the entire game. This may be a valid tactic against Real Madrid, but against Rayo?? What was he thinking. There were times when Rayo passed the ball around for minutes in midfield without any of our players ever going forward to put pressure on them. This was a game where we had to show our character. Now we went down without ever showing our teeth.
