Girona and Bouncebackability: the ability to recover from a setback or defeat

Bouncebackability: the ability to recover from a setback or defeat. Although there have been many strings to Girona’s impressive bow this season, do they have they quality to address their recent slump and return to winning ways against Deportivo Alavés on Gameweek 33? Amid torrential rain and poor playing conditions last Friday night at Montilivi, Real Betis came out on top in what was billed widely as a six-pointer between the two Europa League chasing sides. At least on paper when looking at both sides’ league results this season you…

What is the best way Girona can bounce back after three defeats?

It’s now no wins in three for Girona at arguably the most important part of the season with the chance of Europa League fading away. Whilst there was nothing to separate Girona and Levante in their last game at Montilivi, the divide in quality on the day at least was clear for everybody to see last Sunday. Real Sociedad, a side with very little to play for other than a respectful end of season mid-table position in La Liga seemingly brushed Girona aside at ease. A rare, incredibly bad day…

La Liga: Real Sociedad vs Girona – Lineups, Preview and Prediction

Keeping their feet on the ground whilst their heads are in the clouds (or at least hopefully not already on the beach) has been the Girona squad’s biggest challenge since guaranteeing another season of top flight football in La Liga and reaching the all-important 40 points after beating Villarreal. 17:30 BST, Sunday 8th April, Anoeta Stadium Yet while Girona demonstrated their true intent to qualify for European football after securing La Liga survival with a convincing victory over Deportivo La Coruna, the club’s most recent game against Levante was in…

Will Pablo Machín leave Girona?

After revealing earlier this week to local media that it would take an exceptional offer to prise him away from Montilivi, perhaps for the first time supporters, including myself, began to wonder how a modern-day Girona would function without Pablo Machín at the helm. A man and a manager that will always be synonymous with improving the club tenfold, ultimately leading to their promotion to the Spanish top flight, Machín embodies the many values that the club pride itself on. In many ways, losing a man like Machín around the…

Girona prepare for another landmark against Real Madrid

At the start of the La Liga season, if you’d have asked Spanish football fans, let alone Girona supporters, about both the stature and significance of an away day to the Santiago Bernabeu, most would have told that at the business end of the season, it may well end up meaning more to the Catalans than Real Madrid. However, fast forward almost eight months and with the visitors home and dry with games to spare, it’s the Los Blancos who will be the slightly more fearful side heading into Sunday’s…

Girona’s unsung players key to their La Liga survival

Ahead of Girona’s inaugural top-flight match in La Liga against Atlético Madrid way back on the 19th August 2017, the club’s supporters labelled themselves as ‘a club, a fanbase and city of Primera’. Less than twelve months later with a staggering 11 games remaining, the Catalan outfit have done what many believed was the unthinkable back in pre-season and secured survival in the first division at least for another season – impressive stuff I am sure you can agree. As speculation developed regarding the involvement of Manchester City in the…

Girona are set to stay in La Liga, thanks to Machín & co

In the words of Bon Jovi, we’re halfway there! At least, that’s what Girona fans will be thinking as they edge ever closer to what looks like probable La Liga survival. How have they managed it? Well it’s been certainly much more than just City’s shared resources which have helped Girona establish themselves as a worthy top-flight team in Spain. Instead, a mixture of both old and new faces all singing from the same hymn sheet coupled with a continuation of the same winning mentality from last season’s promotion from…

Expectations defied as Girona continue to impress in Spain’s top flight

Written off by many at the start of the season, Girona have truly defied expectation and perhaps along with fellow top flight new boys Getafe have been the surprise package of the 2017/18 La Liga season. Whilst many may have thought that this would have been the case due to recent involvement and subsequent loan deals via the City Football Group which has led to the likes of Aleix Garcia, Douglas Luiz and Pablo Maffeo joining the Catalan outfit on loan for the current league campaign, instead Girona’s La Liga…
