Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging! In the US, this Thursday, there is Thanksgiving Day. Basically, a day to give thanks and eat turkey, potatoes, and pie…good times! My favourite American holiday!
So, what has occurred since my last blog entry?
Copa: Atleti 0 Orihuela 0
Well, we made it to the next round, but the scoreline is just embarassing. We drew 0-0 against Ori-WHO?!
Jornada 11: Atleti 4 Deportivo 1
We bounced back with an emphatic win against a very poor Depor.
Jornada 12: Numancia 1 Atleti 1
One step backward. Dreadful. Earned point for Numancia. 6 points away from a Champions spot. Discouraging, to say the least.
26-Nov, Champions: Atleti v PSV
This one will be played behind closed doors, no thanks to UEFA. A victory would ease us into the next round. Aguirre will only be without Antonio López, who is nursing an injury.
30-Nov, Jornada 13: Atleti v Racing
7-Dec, Jornada 14: Sporting v Atleti
9-Dec, Champions: Marseille v Atleti
14-Dec, Jornada 15: Atleti v Betis
21-Dec, Jornada 16: Espanyol v Atleti.
This is a good set of games to get back on the winning track and make up for recent bad results, yes?
We take our holiday break until 4-January.
What’s been in the news since my last entry?
-Talk of Aguirre, whether he should be sacked or not. And his tactics.
-Talk of the poor quality of our game recently.
-Talk of UEFA’s absurd ruling against us.
-Banega wants to play more.
