THE WORST YEAR IN TWO DECADES

06 Oct 2010
Taking in mind the current situation of Deportivo itís pretty easy to find all kind of negative stats; maybe the most revealing one is the fact that 2010 has been the worst year of Depor since the last promotion. This for the points added and the goals scored.

For the first time since the 1970ís Deportivo is the last place in la liga, some people say that thereís no reason to panic as only six matchdays have been played on the Primera season, but the true is that the current downward spiral isnít new and it actually started with the year 2010, something that canít be interpreted as an accident as the year is about to end.

And itís that, since January, Depor has played thirty matches and the balance is terrible: only five wins, eight draws and seventeen defeats; which means nineteen points. Besides, the team has only scored nineteen goals for a poor average of 0.63 goals per match. Both are the worst numbers of Deportivo since the last promotion to Primera Divisiůn (season 1991/92).

Both are also the worst marks among the seventeen clubs that have played the whole year at Primera Divisiůn. Far and away are the years when Depor was fighting for the titles and adding 79 points in one single year (2003) or scoring 77 goals in just twelve months (2001).  These last two marks are record seasons for the club.

It also calls the attention the horrific record playing far from home as Deportivo doesnít win an away match since November of 2009 (0-1 at Racing Santander), without forgetting the fact that since that day the Galicians have played sixteen games away from the Riazor only scoring five misery goals. Without doubt Lotina and his players have to change a lot of things if they donít want to face big problems at the end of the season.
