Lightning against history: and he dropped from first to second B in the early twenty-first century
May of 2016, Rayo Vallecano returns to the second division after a disastrous season and after several consecutive years of fighting and getting the permanence in First. Vallecas team bid farewell to the top flight by winning 3-1 a Levante who would share category with the vallecanos the next season.
But the road has been opposed both: Levante is on track to break records in the category and its rise seems unquestionable while Ray is immersed and in a very complicated way, in the fight not go down to Second B.
A goal that has caused considerable disappointment in Vallecas, not only come from First but also because together with the other two undescended, Getafe and Levante, It has the highest budget category. But nevertheless, Levante and Getafe undertook a major restructuring of their squads while Rayo Vallecano kept most of their sacred cows.
Los Miku, Javi Guerra, Trashorras, Manucho, Zé Castro, Ebert and Amaya among others, They followed on a template that is doing numbers to repeat what happened between 2003 Y 2005, down from first to second B consecutively. We see what happens.
