White Stick Awards

Espanyol were not happy with Iglesias Villanueva and his linesman this weekend when they disallowed a perfectly good goal by Osvaldo against Hércules for a non-existent offside. The match ended 0-0 and the Catalans drop out of the European spots as a result. Otherwise there were not too many controversial incidents, although Estrada Fernández had some problems to deal with in the Monday night game between Zaragoza and Getafe, which was already bad tempered before kick-off after Getafe threatened to ask for their opponents to be relegated for non payment of around €1 million as part of the Uche transfer fee. Things turned ugly near the end when, with the locals winning 2-1, play was interrupted several times by balls being thrown on to the pitch from the home team dugout and from the stands. A big fine was expected, but in the end it only worked out at €602. Not bad for ensuring three points, although to be fair to the Maños, coach Javier Aguirre said he was very embarrassed about the incident. (14.04.11)
