A new season was played National League Championship recently created. Specifically, We traveled to the campaign 1933-1934.

  1. Uncle, at 34 format still remained descent of the last classified, He was one that descended, not two.
    Eh double check before writing.

  2. Assuming that at that time the league was ten teams, and just down the last, be involved ninth remain in first division, that is, keep the category.
    So, FC Barcelona has never fallen to second. Although the category that year was extended to 12 equipment was expanding promotions, as it has always been done, by the way.
    If you want to make a story about almost descents Barca, leave the season 39-40, where he was saved from burning in the last days, one to 41-42, in which it was almost all downhill and the end was saved promoting permanency playing against Real Murcia.

    1. better report in those years the last two were relegated but by magic no one relegated barcelona was penultimate it should have relegated and did not descend they invented the idea of ​​increasing teams so that barcelona does not descend.

      1. I am a madridista, but I like the truth even if it doesn't suit me. It is true that Barcelona finished penultimate but it is also true that only one team was relegated. You can look at the previous season and you will see that Valencia fell, nobody else. The previous one touched him to the Union of Irun, just a descent. In the years 40 Barsa again flirted with relegation and came to play promotion against Murcia, if I remember correctly. regards.
