  1. Could it really get any worse for Racing?? :-(
    A terrible performance last night, it was the worst of Llop and Mico’s days all over again, clinging on to a slim lead for dear life.
    Rosario Central look as though they’r about to win the whole thing the way they’re going. Look at their next fixtures, 2 homes and Arsenal away! So they’re above us soon.
    I had high hopes for Arsenal to keep getting hammered but they’ve just gone and won AT Tigre. Six points clear of us now.
    And just to make things even more miserable, Atl Tucuman are winning and we’re back in La Promo.
    And GELP will beat Tigre next week, I can’t see us getting anything from the next two games, so by the end of the month Racing will probably be with the hapless Funebreros in direct relegation. :-(
    I don’t mind the defenders, Lluy, Aveldano, Martinez and Cahais are all good player, but we have NO midfield since Zucu left, and worst of all, Ramirez has been the biggest disappointment since he joined from Colon. I expected 10 or 12 goals per championship, he will be lucky to get that many in his whole Racing career. His current rate is one goal every five appearances. I really don’t want him to make 50 appearances… mind you, with his injury record, that isn’t likely.
    Agreed with all the fans whistles last night. Are they still behind C-L? He seems to have brought in a lot of ‘Ascenso’ players I’ve not really heard of before.

    At least both goalkeepers are good though…

  2. Well Rosario Central has the descenso in their minds and doing everything in their power as quickly as they can, and it’s paying off. They aren’t being held back by an irregular Kily or the selfish Equi this year, and the pibes are definately on a hot streak.
