Gijon must mean 'punching bag'

Sporting GijonDid Sporting Gijon's chairman insult someone's mother? This has been the team's September schedule: @Sevilla (currently 5th), Barcelona (6), @Real Madrid (2), Villareal (1). And guess what? Reverse the home/away and it's their February schedule, too! Not too surprisingly they went 0-4 during this nightmare stretch, mercifully ending earlier today with a 1-0 loss to Villareal despite outshooting them 15-8.

For a visual representation, here is Sporting Gijon before this stretch:

And here is Sporting Gijon after:

Friends don't let friends run the Gauntlet of Spanish soccer.
