Déjà vu in the Mediterranean. If a week ago the Almeria fell 0-1 in his field against Las Palmas wasting the puncture of Zaragoza the previous day, yesterday the script was repeated again, this time before the other yellow team of the competition, an Alcorcón who is already the second visitor in the category. Gutiérrez himself admitted last night that even his appearances in the conference room were identical. “All the press wheels I have made are practically the same: they come to us once and score a goal,” he said.

The former Real Madrid player has a problem in the Mediterranean, which has only seen a worse Almería in home condition on matchday 35, the one from two seasons ago, saving himself on the last day in Lugo without depending on himself. That UDA had taken 26 points in the Vega de Acá enclosure with seven days to go before the competition ended, for the current 27. Specific, Sheikh's Almeria have let points slip in nine of their 17 home games, with a baggage of eight wins, three draws and six defeats: 27 units out of 51 possible.

If Pedro Emanuel had four wins, a draw and a loss against his fans, Gutiérrez has 14 points out of 33 possible, spread over four wins, two tied and five losses. On the opposite side, Guti has taken out best numbers out of their fief, with half a dozen wins, three draws and two victories (only Zaragoza surpasses him in that space of time). The total is nine wins, five tied and seven defeats: only Zaragoza and Mirandés have scored more since the torrejonero landed.

The best Almería in the Mediterranean was that of Emery (06-07). In day 35 he had 44 home points -the best in the category-, exceeding Paco Flores in four units, course 05-06. Fran Fernández served 34 in the absence of seven days, for the 32 of exercises 12-13 and 13-14. In 16-17 Almería had a 30 and a season before, the same number as now.
