Llop out, Caruso Lombardi in

Even when the referee's against you, it's hard to keep your job as Racing boss after losing the clásico de Avellaneda, and thus it was that Juan Manuel Llop made way on Monday. It looks like he's going to be replaced by the fans' choice, Ricardo Caruso Lombardi. The approach from the club to the... Continue Reading →

Torneo Clausura 2009

At long last, after a summer of transfer bore-stories and ridiculous friendly matches which are only 70 or 80 minutes long, real league football returns to the Argentine Republic on Friday night. Following the most closely-fought championship in short tournament history, the defending champions are a familiar name, but that's no reason to assume it'll... Continue Reading →

River and Racing draw in Mendoza

Sunday night's Torneo de Verano match took place in the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza, and saw Racing leading in a closely-fought game which only came to something approximating life in the second half. With almost the last attack of the game, though, Néstor Gorosito's men got a deserved equaliser to remain unbeaten after two... Continue Reading →

Racing beat San Lorenzo

Yes, that's right. San Lorenzo entered the summer action in Mar del Plata on Wednesday night against Racing, and they suffered the indignity of actually losing to Juan Manuel Llop's side. In what was essentially a match between reserve sides, there was plenty of poor passing and neither side looked fully interested. The best chance... Continue Reading →

Maxi Mor-Vélez

Well well. We've been told he's staying with Racing, and the pessimistic presumed he'd be on his way back to Russia. On Monday it was revealed that Maximiliano Moralez is avoiding a return flight to Moscow, where he was never really happy in the six months he spent with FC Moscow, by taking a rather...

The Torneo de Verano begins

Independiente and Racing Club played out a pre-season clásico de Avellaneda down by the seaside in Mar del Plata on Saturday night, and the result wasn't an encouraging one for Racing fans hoping their side will be able to keep up appearances in the Clausura and avoid another relegation battle. With goals from Hernán Fredes,... Continue Reading →

Newell’s finish fifth

The total of 25 points that Racing were aiming for in the Apertura hasn't been met, but they weren't far off. They ultimately have to settle for 22, after a disappointing performance in El Coloso Del Parque saw them end their Torneo Apertura with a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Newell's Old Boys. For...

The resurgence continues

God knows where this has come from. Racing have looked a better team so far in the Apertura, but lost last week to Banfield and had a tricky match this weekend against top-of-the-table San Lorenzo in a clásico that surely, none of their fans thought they could win. But win it they did, thanks to... Continue Reading →

Does… not… compute…

Apologies if you're unable to read HEGS for the next few days. The reason is probably that the server has exploded in sheer confusion. On Saturday night, Racing, who hadn't won in 12 matches away from home, hadn't beaten Argentinos away in 12 years, and hadn't even scored in five matches against this weekend's opponents, took...
