    Rep for getting me to think of Zak Whitbread for the first time in God knows how long.

    I do a lot of reflecting on Gold Cup winner Frankie Simek, so I'm happy to have helped.

    What? Did he ask his teammates what they thought of his thighs?

    Throwback to Lampard explaining that Pulisic wasn't in the squad as he was experiencing an awareness of his hamstring. Or, something like that.

    Huge second-half comeback away at Sevilla in Luca's absence. Down 1-0 until the 72nd, goals from Perez and Larsen give Celta Vigo a 2-1 win.

    That moves them 5 points clear of the bottom 3 with 9 matches left.

    Not fit enough yet:

    Speaking in his pre-match press conference a short time ago, Claudio Giráldez confirmed that all of Luca de la Torre, Carlos Dotor and Renato Tapia have been ruled out against Betis.

    The former pair returned to training alongside the rest of the Celestes’ squad this week, but have not yet been approved for matchday duties.​

    While not great for Luca personally to work his way back into the lineup after his injury, that was a huge and dominating win for Celta today to keep a nice cushion above the last relegation spot.

    Glad he got some time on the field again, at least.

    Playing against Villarreal right now. Up 2-1 around the 60th minute and Luca just put a clean up shot from the top of the box off the post.

    Cadiz get an injury time winner which suddenly puts a lot more pressure on Celta Vigo to get a result today.

    Luca on the bench to start todays La Liga match.

    Luca DNP, but ... Hugo Alvarez has an epic second half, with a goal and an assist in four minutes, to drive a 2-1 comeback win that puts Celta 5 points up on Cadiz with two to play. Huge step toward staying up.

    And Celta win at home, 5 points clear of relegation spot with 2 games to play.
    Away to already-relegated Granada next.

    Wow. What a big result for Vigo. I checked and saw it was 0-1 at halftime and feared the worst. Happy to read they pulled it out.
