The Osasuna effect...

which former Notts player played for Osasuna as well?

Some might be mistaken by Mark Drapers short stay in Spain, where he almost actually signed for a different Spanish club but returned to England due to a better offer.

I'm racking my brain over this question though.

My first thoughts was someone from Ricardo Moniz team, or perhaps Marcel Cas.

If I can think of the answer, I'll either give a clue or add a spoiler to my comment.

No idea...

its before my time too, i think. i dont know, i cant think of anyone who might have played over in spain.

i would also love to see quizzes or and random questions being asked, maybe a community thing? @Piethagoram would be great at this but maybe not pin all the expectations onto one person.

I am somewhat disappointed no one has commented on the context of the article , like "“Our fans are our greatest asset. We don’t have much money or the talent other teams have but we have them. You have to make players see it’s a special place,”"  

yesterday, there was a stony silence for long periods. There was absolutely zilch to get excited about

@Piethagoram I think football fans in England have become more passive in general and all too often wait for the players to excite them instead of driving them forward. Having said that, there does need to be a sense of optimism that something is going to happen on the pitch, a bit of a spark. Meadow Lane is a fearsome place when everyone is behind the team.

The fans are a club's greatest asset when you're in dire straits though. Waldhof Mannheim were in what the Germans would equate to non-league for SIXTEEN YEARS before returning this season. Many clubs who have slipped down the league like that have dwindled away to nothing (their own city rivals and the German champions of 1948, VfR Mannheim, now play before 300 souls at the sixth level). Waldhof came back because their fans kept the faith. Even when the football was poor there was still an atmosphere, it still felt like a football match. And eventually the situation on the pitch righted itself.

As for Osasuna, I do love an underdog. They've also got the euphoria of being newly promoted and holding their own in the new division. They might never compete for major honours, but building a cult around the club is such a lot of fun and can really keep things going during the lean times.
