Copa: Atlético de Madrid v Granada 74

Posted by atleti on January 2, 2008

First post of 2008! Finally!

Today (Wednesday) the club play the home (and final) leg of this round of Copa. We have a slim lead, 2-1.

STARTING 11: Falcón; Perea; Pernía; Valera; Zé Castro; Miguel; Cléber; Luis García; Jurado; Reyes; Mista.

SUBS: Abbiati, Pablo, Eller, Raúl García, Forlán, Simao.

Rested: Eller, Maxi, Antonio López.

Injured: Leo Franco Motta, Seitaridis.

Suspensed: Agüero

No Maniche! Is it safe to say that Maniche will never play for the club again? I still have mixed feelings on all of this… he has been a key player for us, but his behaviour over the past two years has been unprofessional. (Does anyone know of a similar situation like this? How was it solved? A player that comes to mind is Joey Barton (good player with anger management problems).

Anyway, Aguirre has said this will be a game where the lesser-used players will have an opportunity to start: Falcón, Mista, Miguel, and Valera in other words.

Here’s hoping for a strong victory to kick off 2008.
