Is this all we can get? They are wanted men, they are elusive, they are ‘The Unsignables’. Well that seems to be the case where CD Tenerife are concerned. All our preferred January targets have slipped away to other clubs and we are already grubbing around in the bargain basement. First choice Naranjo, who last season netted 16 goals for Gimnastic, has signed for Genk in Belgium, who had the cheek to actually pay money for him. Efforts to sign Chuli from Almeria have fallen on stony ground. Money not being the problem, but other factors were. Our hopes now seem to be resting on Tyronne del Pino from that yellow mob across the water or Quim (no sniggering please) Araujo from Valencia Mescalla in the Tercera. Tyronne is a 25 year old attacking midfielder who has scored goals at Tercera level. He came through their youth system and scored 12 goals in 66 games for the B team. More recently he netted 16 goals in 65 games on loan at Huesca.
This is Tyronne. Tyronne is a Pio.
As always it seems our inward moves depend on players leaving the club. Jairo is close to joining Melilla in the Segunda B. Jouini is a popular choice to go anywhere that will have him, his CV says ‘big’, and it’s about the only positive thing to say about him. Short of getting prospective players drunk and tricking them to sign a contract on a beer mat, I despair at the famine of options facing us.
Quim Araujo (pronounced Kim please) is a 28 year old forward born in Barcelona, who is an attacking midfielder. He’s another player who has basically not played any higher than the So please Mr Serrano, make me look a bigger level our own B team play at and there is a distinct lack of any scoring statistics (19 games, fool than I already am by making a wow signing between me writing this and you reading it. 2 goals. All at third tier. Ed). What does 2017 bring for CD Tenerife? Obviously my calender year General Year. runs from August to June - the football season, so my reflection only counts l E for the next few months. The main thing for me is that despite the fact that we have not been playing I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to the New
breathtaking football we are still in the mix, and a win today could mean we return down the TF 1 in a play-off spot. I would have certainly have settled for that at the start of the campaign. If you are out of the day to day rumblings of the blanquiazules, all I can say is that you are the lucky one! Fans are a bit downbeat after last weeks away draw. It was not a good performance but a point is a point against a Nastic team with a new manager. I heard that it was an epic trip by all accounts for the travelling Armada Sur crew. Some first timers included, who despite the disappointment of the game are now hooked. I told them to get used to it, as everyone knows my record (2 CDT wins out of 34 games in mainland). But results are not everything and the friends made, and the touring I have done will live with me forever. You know the new catchphrase ‘What ever happens on Tour goes straight onto Facebook’ and it was fun keeping up with their antics. The Nastic fans in Tarragona deserve a special mention for treating the Tenerife supporters with great hospitality, laying on pre-match food, drinks and a pitch tour. The way football should be.

You’d have thought after all the time that we have had our kit sponsored by Hummel, that somebody may have mentioned our aversion to the colour yellow for obvious reasons. No it seems. Hummel in their ignorance (or maybe arrogance) have produced a training shirt that is destined for the ‘bargain bucket’, before it has even reached the shelves. Buy and wear it at your peril. Lots of friends made at the Gimnastic game last week, where a contingent of Armada Sur were treated to some pre-match hospitality by the local Nastic supporters. Nice to know football can be enjoyed together by rival fans. And probably more normal than the press would want you to believe. Looking down the transfer list for the January window, most transactions in Spain are being carried out between clubs in the third tier. Our search for a striker and creative midfielder goes on. Pep Marti is quite relaxed about the subject. His belief being that there will be more movement in the last ten days of the month, when more players will decide to look over their options for the next six months.
Round Up After a bit of a shaky month, Levante have picked up the pace again. They beat UCAM 2-0 in the re-scheduled game, which gives them a seven point cushion at the top, and keeps UCAM in the relegation zone alongside Mirandes, Almeria and Gimnastic. No surprise to see Getafe in the top three after a shaky start and change of coach. Cadiz however, under the guidance of Alvaro Cervera, are in great form with five victories from the last six games. Interestingly, the top four have the best form over the last six games and we are fifth best with eleven points out of eighteen. Today’s opponents Zaragoza lost at home to Girona last weekend, and it is hard to see where they are going wrong, given their ability to attract reasonably good players. Our ex-coach Raul Agne has yet to really inspire them into any kind of form, and they only have seven points from the last six games. Having said that, we all know they are difficult opponents, and we have only beaten them once in the last ten encounters. Angel returns again, hopefully with some humility.
First Goal Last Goal Colette at 26 and Daro at 88 were the winners. Kirsty predicted the 2-0 scoreline correctly to win a tenner. Please use Livescore app when checking times. BBQ total: 249.00€

Alberto is December’s player of the month After finding his way back into the starting eleven, Alberto’s form has improved greatly as the season has progressed. It is not long past when he struggled to stay on the pitch for a full game due to his volcanic temperament. It seems that Pep has had a calming influence on his game. And he has only had three yellow cards in ten games, compared to eleven yellow and two red in nineteen games last season. It is good to see a home grown player progressing so well within the club. So well done Alberto, you’ve earned it.
