La Liga 2009-2010: A Season Preview (Part One)

Will Getafe be able to rise from a team fighting relegation to the mid-table team of previous seasons?  Similar to Athletic Bilbao, Getafe’s main problem was giving up late goals.  Getafe gave up fourteen goals in the last fifteen minutes of matches, and Getafe had eleven losses by one goal and twelve draws.  Roberto Abbondanzieri started the first half of the season as goalkeeper, but his relatively poor play and his move back to Boca Juniors in January made the goalkeeper job open to Jacobo, who Getafe loaned from Real Valladolid.  Jacobo was not much better, and he was only temporary.  Oscar Ustari suffered a knee injury while with the Spanish national team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and was only able to start five matches.  With a healthy Oscar Ustari, he should be a boost to that struggling Getafe defense.  Another piece of the puzzle added to the defense is the €2.5 million capture of Mané from Almería.  A left back that is equally competent in defense and in the attacking third, he will boost an otherwise leaky defense.  Getafe’s prospects do not look promising, but these improvements in defense should help in avoiding relegation but not enough to be safe from the relegation fight.
