Final Blog Entry of 2007

Posted by atleti on December 30, 2007

Back to work for Los Colchoneros! The squad–including Maniche— had a light training session today (Sunday) after a week off for the Christmas holiday. 150 supporters showed up to see the team in action.

Leo Franco & Maxi didn’t participate due to injury. Maxi’s knee injury seems minor, he should be fully fit in time for our Sunday game.

Some good news in terms of injuries: Motta & Seitaridis trained in the gym, separately. On the road to recovery…

Tomorrow they’ll train again in preparation for Wednesday’s Copa home clash (2-January) against Granada 74.

Reminder: we won the away leg, 1-2.

Anyway, the transfer window will be open soon enough, but it won’t matter much to Atleti since the club have said over & over again that there won’t be any winter signings. Still, the transfer window is something I look forward to, from a general footballing point of view.

Enough of my rambling, have a safe New Year everyone!

I can’t wait for Liga to resume!

    Happy New Year everyone, may 2008 be a successful and happy year for everyone, and may Athletico end the season in the top 3 and be in the Champions League for the following season, and more importantly i hope that we buy a defender and a defensive midfielder during the January transfer window.
