CF Granada vs Real Sporting de Xixón After the Sarries match our cousins were playing Real Sporting de Xixón (no, me neither). Nine games into the season it was billed as a relegation battle - both teams playing a very defensive 4-4-2 - saying that it was quite a pacy game. A few things really stuck in my mind and a couple of questions for our compañeros: When the team captains met the refs before kick off I though, judging by the size of him, Sporting was being captained by Tyrion Lannister. "Our boy" Uche was quite anonymous. The Granada crowd were very noisy throughout the match - was this normal? The standard of refereeing, especially in the first half, was dire - was this normal? I always thought Granada's kit was very "original" (red & white striped shirt & blue shorts) but I noticed from wiki that Real Sporting de Xixón has a very similar kit as does Atletico Madrid - why is this?
