Getafe have had a remarkable three and a half years under José Bordalás. Their coach arrived when they were second bottom of the second division and he led them to the Europa League and to the point where they're now a genuine contender for Champions League qualification. So, how did they do it? That's what we discuss in this midweek podcast.

Paco Polit (@pacopolitENG) sets the scene by explaining how far Getafe had fallen. Matt Clark (@MattClark_08) picks up the story by reflecting on Bordalás' back story and his first few months at the club. Getafe fan Fran Iborra (@FranIborra16) reflects on the change in mentality that came with Bordalás. Román de Arquer (@Aeroslavee) explains how Getafe consolidated their place in the top division and went all the way to Europe. Sam Leveridge (@samleveridge) tells the stories of some of Bordalás' confrontations with the press and other coaches. And host Euan McTear (@emctear) speaks about how Getafe have done so far in the Europa League.

It's all put together along with some commentary clips from Cadena Copa and Bleacher Report, as well as the very catchy Getafe club anthem.
