Languid draw between Real Sociedad and Girona | sports


Coaches like to play coaches, which is actually their job, but the footballer, who has a membership card, but not a coach, sometimes does not understand those games that once were on a blackboard or a notebook but now they are usually on a tablet, which almost always handles the second on board, as if using technology for the public, distorts the intellectual functions of the coach. Notebooks still remain, but they are like tourist restaurant menus, with folios stuck in plastic bags, that instead of photographs of paellas, mixed dishes or chuletones, they reproduce plays that the soccer player who is going to go out to the field looks with reluctance.

In basketball, for example, it is very different. The technician, with his impeccable suit, has no shame in moving magnets on a kind of travel basketball court, or staining his fingers when erasing the school blackboard.

Both Garitano and Eusebio played coaches when preparing their teams to play in Anoeta. Both left their jewels in the trunk. La Real played without William José, his top scorer. The Girona coach responded with the same play: he left out Stuani, the most inspired man against the opposing goal. And what happened ?, that both teams were blunt when it came to approaching the opponent's goal. In addition, when Eusebio Sacristán, who knows them all in Anoeta, decided to give the field to the Real, he gave Asier Garitano a fat disgust, because by that time, the people of San Sebastian had decided that the possession is overrated, and they were not going bad with the long balls of Navas to the career of Jon Bautista or Sandro. All the work of Bono in the first part came to him in several plays of just two or three touches, with distant shots, yes.

The Real, to play at home, seemed more forced to give a decent image in attack. The Girona, meanwhile, was limited to closing spaces. Nothing else. The game was declining with the minutes. After Sandro's last shot in the 39th minute, and the mess in which Moya could get in the 44th when trying to get a ball played inside the small area, instead of taking it by hand, there was no more until very advanced the second part. He played football with languor, and even a certain halo of sadness. Players like Oyarzabal, in Real, seem in melancholic phase, a peculiarity of left-handed players, who sometimes get entangled in their own loop. But right-handers also have theirs. Ruben Pardo, whom Garitano is trying to recover for the cause, agreed with Eusebio, who for several seasons considered him an irrelevant footballer. The Real did not give more than itself. Only in the 66th minute, with Juanmi already in the field after serving three games of penalty, hit a whiplash on a double occasion of Sandro and Oyarzabal that Bono broke in two good saves.

Del Girona did not get news beyond those provided by its goalkeeper. Not even when he left the Stuani camp, too late, when his presence seemed residual. Then the Catalan team did not stretch either, very comfortable defending the tie to zero. A shot by Lozano with the hump in the 89th minute, after a corner kick can be considered an occasion, but almost as much as an octopus as a companion animal.
