FT FC Bayern München 2-3 RC Deportivo La Coruña
In two away games, Makaay has scored 5 goals. If he's not Europe's Footballer of the week, nobody is.
In 2000, Deportivo reigned supreme in LaLiga and became European regulars
They were in fact Champions League semi-finalists just four years later
Deportivo had plenty of star-studded names, like Diego Tristan and Albert Luque
But now Deportivo are in danger of dropping into the Spanish fourth-tier
Interesting article. Thanks for the link.
Yeah, I was living overseas and watching La Liga regularly during that period. Deportivo La Coruna had a great squad and the names in that article bring back those memories. Those were the years when the league was NOT always won by Barcelona or Real Madrid.
It is sad to see how far DLC has fallen, but blame goes to those who mis-managed the finances. Money is needed in modern sport and I would like to see FIFA get tougher with financial rules so clubs like Barca and Real Madrid don't get undo advantages playing with large amounts of debt.
