    Deportivo La Coruņa

    No thread yet for Super Depor (or I missed it)

    time for one then, they look like a serious candidate for the Champions League spot this year. I think it's the most european side in La liga so far, blocking everything with a well organised defense first before thinking about attacking play. Killing the game off with being a goal up seems to go well this season.

    Till now, from what I've seen, they seem quite stable (except Espanyol loss maybe) and have some good players. If they can keep it up, third place is a possibility (depending on Seville). Otherwise fourth should be really doable since Valencia is still going up and down and Villarreal and Atletico only going down.

    I´d like to see them return to their past glory but somehow I see Valencia joining Sevilla later in the season and forming the top 4 with us and Real.

    Valencia have a very good bench to take them through the season , it's a matter of consistency for them

    Really? I liked their games versus Vilarreal and Sevilla + the summaries of the other games seem to have some decent actions/combinations in it.

    Valencia are like Ronaldinho:
    The class is there, they seem to be on the right track again after having one great game and then blow it all the next three games.

    i think it's an issue of mentality (for Valencia ) and lack of solid central defense . otherwise their midfield & forward line can match Barca & Real
    i really like Mathieu (probably the best LB in the liga this season) and Miguel vs Barca but the 2 CB remains a suspect

    Matthieu is a friggin redhead.

    Filipe is also confirming why Barcelona wanted to buy him.

    dealbert is an awesome CB, cant believe that they got him for free. its usually his partners that fuck up but david navarro and alexis do have a lot of promise.

    and to think of it, manuel fernandes is injured for them at midfield.

    Ok I like Guardado he is a good player and Lafita has great potential, still we shall see if his zaragoza move works out.

    Not quite... way too boring game they play. But the results they're getting lately, makes you believe the old Deportivo is coming back.

    One thing for sure, Sevilla won't let down the 3rd place easily, they(depor,valencia,atletico) have to work their ass hard to achieve that.

    guardado is their best player and if he stays healthy their offense should be ok.

    Well that team had a young and fit and hungry Tristan up front along with Makaay and Djalminha. With Mauro Silva as DM and Valeron and Fran conducting things in midfield.

    That quality in such a team or club happens once a decade really, if that.
