From a sporting point of view and the integrity of the division as a whole the lack of support from other clubs in Segunda is absolutely shocking IMO.

It reminded me of the World Cup 1982, when West Germany and Austria played out a deliberate 1-0 win (Disgrace of Gijon), and knocked Algeria out who played Chile the previous day. I know it's not the same scenario, but from the following World Cup in Mexico in all final group matches had to be played at the same time. Hence our clubs complaint about the issue.

Let's see if Elche make some noise in our support or quietly head off into the sunset now they're in the Play Offs.
