KEYNOTE: This is the new style of update I'm trying to implement, as writing out long paragraphs take time, and I don't have that anymore. Either way, let me know if you like it :)
What a great month man! You're doing extremely well! :)
An incredible run of results you've put together, especially against teams who were recently in the BBVA. And I'm personally very happy to see Sene and Simon performing so well, once a Carbayone, always a Carbayone. Well written update as always :)
A set of fantastic result, good work Pauk :D
Congrats on 10k views!
Great set of results recently :)
@Josh: Thanks man, it's been pleasing to see the results, but the way we're playing is not pleasing my expectations.

@Rab: Thank you for the kind comment(s), Sene has been out of this world for me after joining since Jan!

@Walter: Thanks mate, appreciate it.

@Justice: Thanks, :D

I'd like to thank to all the readers for helping me reach the milestone of 10,000 views.
Caught up at last :) great so far man
@NVDTahir: Thanks for the kind comment

KEYNOTE: This story should resume either via some updates in the coming week, however, if that fails to happens, it will definitely get restarted June 5th, the day after Finals for me. Thanks ~ Pauk.
Can't wait for it to re-start mate, just caught up. Some magic graphics to go along with a magic season so far. Good work!

Raul: We are not title contenders

After an impressive run of form by the Santander side, which only includes a defeat and a draw, there have been reports of a potentially mounting a title challenge. This form, has seen them fire into the top of the table, and Racing's manager, Raul, dismissed the possibility of a title challenge in a press conference earlier today.

Raul said,"No, we are not thinking about winning the Liga Adelante. Our solitary aim is to get back to the Liga BBVA and whether we do that by finishing 1st, 2nd or via play-offs, it doesn't matter. The lads in the dressing room say the same thing I'm about to say.. We take the match game-by-game, and whether we take full points, one or even none, we won't tell ourselves that we will win the league. Last year we had to secure the league with more than 95 points, and it will probably be the same this year. I repeat, we are not title contenders."

Josep Sene

Key: The midfielder has been key in the start of the season so far.

Racing's fan-base disagreed with their manager, with a banner in the C.E. Sabadell's match stated,"Hay que ser ambicioso para ser grande." The banner translates,"You have to be ambitious to become big." The club have yet to respond to such banner in yesterday's away match.
Ooo wise words from Raul! I wonder how the board will respond...
Little bit of mind games from raul ;) I agree with the fans, too :P
