here were two minutes left on the penultimate night when Fernando Amorebieta approached the bench one last time. Any news? He would have Authentic Abraham Almonte Womens Jersey heard if there was and deep down he knew what they were going to say, but he had to ask. By the touchline at Ipurua they waited, phones and radios at the ready, and the scene was repeated in the corner of the ground where 300 fans stood. On the pitch, their minds were drawn to San Mamés or El Madrigal, clinging to a hope they couldn’t see. This time, though, there was no miracle, no one riding to their rescue. “Anything?” Nothing. Time was slipping away and so were they. Sporting Gijón were on course for a second successive victory; they were also on course for the second division, their fate finally decided 50km west and 600km south.On this given Sunday, at least. No fate but what you make – and Sporting’s relegation was their own work. Institutional crisis, social divide and financial limitations had brought them here, the “revolution” run aground, revealed as but a brief rebellion against their reality; they had never expected to get up to primera in the first place and had enjoyed two seasons there but now they were heading down again, just when they seemed to have been given the chance to secure a little stability, their very survival no longer in doubt; the club had been saved by the team, their coach insisting: “Let’s see if we can build a bit so we don’t have to suffer again.” Instead, they went down.If the league’s second lowest salary cap limited them, it was the culmination of long mismanagement and they could only blame themselves. More immediately, footballers who might have helped them left for free, their contracts run down, and others who did not help arrived, in great quantity and questionable quality. After two years in which their hands were tied – earnings embargoed because of debts to the taxman and players – Sporting signed 13 players. They picked up seven points from their first three games but the decline was unstoppable. Five defeats took them into the relegation zone and although two draws meant they briefly lifted their head above the water, they then started sinking. They lost seven of eight and never raised their heads again.They changed coach: out went Abelardo, in came Rubi. They Authentic Albert Pujols Youth Jersey changed players: three more arrived in the winter window, including Lacina Traoré. But it didn’t help. Some suffered but others disengaged, unaffected by what was going on around them. Two wins in 19 games in 2017 brought them here. Or, more accurately, left them here. They have been in the relegation zone for 26 weeks.Still, there was hope. As the season came to a conclusion, they thought there might be help, too. For the last two years, Sporting had done it on the final day, aided by outsiders. They came up with a late Lugo goal against Girona, and then stayed up thanks to victory over a Villarreal side whose manager Marcelino, a former Sporting player, manager and fan, had to defend himself against accusations that he had thrown the game, and thanks to Betis beating Getafe. This time, things appeared to have fallen nicely, too: their final three games would be against Las Palmas, Eibar and Betis, all teams with nothing to play for. Meanwhile, although they only needed a point, this weekend Leganés and Deportivo la Coruña had to go away to Athletic and Villarreal, two sides fighting for fifth. Sporting beat Las Palmas and against Eibar they won 1-0, the first time they had won two in a row all season – and most expected a third Sporting win to follow against Betis.But this time was different; they didn’t get to that final day. Having taken themselves to the edge of the abyss, this time Sporting had no one to pull them back. Instead, when the penultimate weekend kicked off, everyone who had anything to play for beginning at the same time, they had two teams waiting to send them tumbling in. All Leganés and Deportivo needed was a draw and it would be definitive but for Sporting the news was initially encouraging. They had been overrun to begin with but were now 1-0 up through Burgui, who scored after half an hour. They knew it was still 0-0 between Villarreal and Deportivo but the home side were on top. And as for Leganés, they were losing at San Mamés, for whom Aritz Aduriz had scored on 15 minutes.
