â†µNot well. â†µâ†µ
â†µAfter the 21st goal, we thought surely they'd buy Eddie Johnson and put him in just to staunch the bleeding, but apparently not. Villareal: not very nice, actually. â†µ
â†µThe team in question here—not actually my rec team despite appearances—is CF Navata, which immediately brings to mind the following questions: â†µâ†µ
â†µ-- Why are they playing Villareal? â†µâ†µ
â†µ-- Why are they playing Villareal in their home stadium, which appears to hold literally dozens of spectators? â†µâ†µ
â†µI could find no explanations for any of these questions outside of Navata, which The Offside discovered is a club in the ninth tier of Spanish soccer, the "Tercera Territorial de Catalunya". The club doesn't have a Wikipedia page in English, Spanish or Catalan, and may just be some friends having a laugh. Or the winners of a fabulous contest. Second prize was a kick in the nuts. â†µâ†µ
