The Eibar Dream: 3 Years On

Sunday 24th August 2014, the date of Eibar’s first ever game in La Liga and the date of their first ever goal and victory in Spain’s top flight too. Three years on and we take a look back at that day and how the tiny Basque club have done since.

It was a dream for Eibar and its fans playing in La Liga for the first time in their then 74 year history, securing their place in the Primera division by way of a 1-0 victory over Alaves in the May of 2014.

However after that moment it was far from plain sailing as the humble club from the North of Spain were almost out of La Liga before they had even begun.

The Spanish Football Federation threatening Eibar with demotion to the third tier unless they paid €1.7 million into a Sociedad Anonima Deportiva, a special type of public limited company.

So Eibar set up a campaign named Defiende al Eibar (Defend Eibar) allowing football fans from around the globe to buy shares in the club and ultimately help the club get to La Liga and on the 15th of July 2014, the club announced that it had reached its goal.

With the club now assured of a place among Spain’s elite they were able to prepare for their first game in La Liga.

And so to that day, exactly 3 years ago today, when Basque neighbours Real Sociedad were the visitors to the compact Ipurua stadium. What a day it was for Los Armeros as they made their debut in La Liga and to many people around the world. The game may not have been a classic but the only goal of the game certainly was.

With the first half drawing to a close, seemingly goalless, Eibar were awarded a free kick not far from the left hand corner flag. Up stepped Javi Lara who struck a fantastic effort towards goal, watching as it flew past the goalkeeper crashing in off of the far post and sending most of the 6000 crowd into absolute delirium. (You can view the goal below.)

Eibar were here, and they were here with a bang.

That turned out to be the only goal Lara would score for Eibar in his 31 games but it’s one that will live with him forever.

They held out for the win that day but come the end of the season they found themselves at the top of the bottom 3 and heading straight back down to La Segunda. That was until 13th placed Elche were demoted to the third tier as punishment for financial mismanagement with Eibar being reinstated and their dream surged on.

They were of course among the favourites to be relegated next season but after 14th and 10th placed finishes in the next two seasons, Eibar are here for the 2017/18 La Liga season, their fourth in a row and in their history.

Three years on from that goal and the little club are still going strong in Spain’s top tier and who knows, maybe Europe is a possibility.

The fairy-tale continues…

  86. One thing I would like to touch upon is that fat burning plan fast can be achieved by the perfect diet and exercise.

  110. I believe that a property foreclosures can have a major effect on the borrower’s life. Foreclosures can have a 8 to ten years negative relation to a borrower’s credit report. Any borrower who has applied for a mortgage or almost any loans as an example, knows that the particular worse credit rating can be, the more tricky it is to get a decent mortgage. In addition, it could affect any borrower’s power to find a really good place to let or hire, if that gets the alternative houses solution. Great blog post.

  118. I have figured out some new points from your site about desktops. Another thing I’ve always considered is that computer systems have become an item that each home must have for most reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize homes, pay bills, go shopping, study, pay attention to music and also watch tv programs. An innovative way to complete these types of tasks is by using a laptop. These desktops are mobile, small, effective and easily transportable.

  119. Thanks for your writing. I would love to say that a health insurance specialist also works well with the benefit of the actual coordinators of your group insurance cover. The health agent is given a listing of benefits looked for by an individual or a group coordinator. What a broker does is seek out individuals or perhaps coordinators which best match up those desires. Then he provides his ideas and if all sides agree, this broker formulates a binding agreement between the two parties.

  120. I would also like to add that when you do not now have an insurance policy or perhaps you do not remain in any group insurance, you might well benefit from seeking the help of a health insurance broker. Self-employed or people having medical conditions commonly seek the help of the health insurance dealer. Thanks for your writing.

  121. The things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is always that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and so on, that must fit the features of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is fairly current and there are no main system issues, replacing the storage space literally will take under sixty minutes. It’s among the list of easiest laptop or computer upgrade types of procedures one can picture. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  127. One thing is the fact that one of the most prevalent incentives for making use of your card is a cash-back or perhaps rebate offer. Generally, you’ll have access to 1-5 back for various expenditures. Depending on the card, you may get 1 back again on most buying, and 5 again on expenses made from convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores and ‘member merchants’.

  128. A round of applause for your article post.Really thank you! Fantastic.

  130. “I truly appreciate this post. I’ve been looking all over for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thank you again..”

  131. I do believe that a foreclosure can have a important effect on the client’s life. House foreclosures can have a 8 to several years negative impact on a borrower’s credit report. Any borrower having applied for a mortgage or virtually any loans as an example, knows that your worse credit rating is usually, the more challenging it is to obtain a decent financial loan. In addition, it could possibly affect the borrower’s capability to find a quality place to lease or rent, if that gets to be the alternative homes solution. Interesting blog post.

One other thing is when you are promoting your property alone, one of the problems you need to be aware of upfront is just how to deal with household inspection records. As a FSBO retailer, the key about successfully moving your property plus saving money about real estate agent income is know-how. The more you understand, the more stable your sales effort will be.
