Deportivo la Coruna Needs to Regroup Before 2015 Matches Begin
The 2013 – 2014 season was a good one for Deportivo la Coruna. The football club performed quite well in Spain’s Segunda Division, finishing in second place and earning promotion to the 2014 – 2015 La Liga along with Eibar. But while Eibar has taken full advantage of the new opportunity, soaring into the Primera Division top 10, the wearers of the Deportivo la Coruna soccer jersey have struggled to make any sort of impression on the football league.
Now, with a break in play extending until the first weekend of the New Year, the Turks are going to need to do some regrouping and figure out a play style that will allow them to win games. You can support their efforts by stopping by Soccer Box today and picking up a new Deportivo la Coruna home shirt 2014 – 2015! We also have a 2014 – 2015 third jersey available, as well as a brilliantly blue team t-shirt and a 2012 – 2013 version of the club home shirt.
The Fall 2014 Run
There have been positives and negatives this fall, as Deportivo la Coruna has worked to adjust to the higher level pressures of La Liga. On one hand, they’ve won a few notable victories including a 1-0 win against former Segunda Division rivals, Eibar.
That win, achieved during an away fixture that took place on September 15th, indicated that the Turks might be the stronger of the two soccer squads promoted into Spain’s top football league this year. As the first success of the season, the game told fans in the Deportivo la Coruna soccer jersey that their football team was on the right track.
That wasn’t the only big victory for Coruna, either. On the contrary, their biggest win of the season came on October 19th, when they donned the Deportivo la Coruna home shirt 2014 – 2015 to take on Valencia.
Even with the home field advantage, the Turks weren’t favored to win that particular game. After all, Valencia has consistently remained as one of the top five clubs on the 2014 – 2015 standings table. Just one match before their meeting with Deportivo, Valencia had even beaten reigning league champions, Atletico Madrid.
Still, Valencia was no match for La Coruna the one time the two football teams met this fall. The Turks thoroughly dominated that home game, winning with a score of 3-0.
Unfortunately, for every winning game in the 2014 – 2015 La Liga so far, Deportivo has suffered three losses. In addition to their triumphs over Eibar and Valencia, the team beat Elche—the lowest-ranking football team in the league right now. That makes for three wins total, with their record rounded out by four draws and nine losses.
In other words, the defeats and disappointments have been plentiful for the wearers of the Deportivo la Coruna soccer jersey. Particularly devastating was a 2-8 home loss against Real Madrid in September, but other substantial losses have come in fixtures against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid, and Villarreal.
The 0-3 Villarreal defeat may have actually been the most disappointing for the Turks—even if the Real Madrid loss saw their largest point deficit. For one thing, they scored no points against Villarreal, compared to the two they managed against Real’s Cristiano Ronaldo-led squad.
For another thing, the Villarreal match was the last fixture of 2014 for Deportivo. Played on December 21st, the game took place just before La Liga took a break for Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Year’s.
Their next football match is scheduled for January 3rd, and will be played at home against Athletic Club Bilbao. In other words, when players put on the Deportivo la Coruna home shirt 2014 – 2015 and head out on the field to take on Bilbao, they will have had two weeks to reflect on their loss to Villarreal.
Fans, of course, are hoping the Coruna squad has taken the time to rest, recuperate, and rethink playing strategies. Clearly, what the team has been doing so far in the 2014 – 2015 La Liga hasn’t been working, and a new plan of attack will be needed for things to improve in 2015.
Do you think the club can turn things around? Right now, they are in 17th place on the league standings table—just out of relegation range. Root for them to climb up the ranks by picking up a new Deportivo la Coruna soccer jersey, available at Soccer Box!
