The RCD Espanyol played something more before the Alaves than in the last match with the Ath. Bilbao. Players have orders to press up and sides to pass from half when they play at home. The question is why do not they do the same thing outside the home? Espanyol pressed and generated arrivals to the rival area before an opponent who only touched and try to do something but without putting the leg in defense, friends plan. All this reminds me of our year 2000 where when we were past the last 7 or 8 games were training for the final cup against the At. Madrid. I think the Alaves is in the same plan given that with 40 points is saved and even losing 1-0 did not have a very energetic attitude to go for the draw in the last moments. The problem of the "matenaccio" of Quique Sánchez Flores is that it is not attractive for the spectator and the entrance on Saturday at one in the afternoon did not reach even the 18,000 spectators. Espanyol needs more speed and aggressive attitude in its contras with more spectacular results than minimum victories to engage the social mass.
Quique Sanchez Flores, with this result compared last season now is +9 points with the same rivals last year with the previous coaches and -13 points under par with Valencia CF 2005-2006 which led to third place and his best Success of Champions.
