It’s still Tuesday!

Posted by atleti on March 25, 2008

It’s been a busy few days for me– that time of year– you know how it is! But here’s a new entry with some of this & some of that.

Firstly, Jornada 29: Sevilla 1 Atleti 2.

Not much to say except that it’s a massive boost for our goal of securing a Champions spot!

Abbiati; Antonio López, Pablo, Perea, Pernía; Camacho (Jurado 90’), Raúl García (Cléber 51’), Maxi, Simão; Forlán & Kun Agüero.

18′ Maxi (good work by Forlán)
57′ Agüero (assist by Antonio López)

You’ve seen it already, but it’s worth posting it up here, as a reminder:

1 Real Madrid 62
2 Barcelona 58
3 Villarreal 56
4 Atlético 50
5 Racing 47
6 Sevilla 45

A 3-point cushion– let’s not lose it, for the love of God! As Raul said, “We’re in the driving seat” now.

Next five fixtures:

-away to Villarreal
-home to Almeria
-away to Real Valladolid
-home to Real Betis
-away to Getafe

Not a bad set of games coming up. In fact, I fancy our chances against all of these teams. The Yellow Submarine and SuperGeta are the toughest of them all, I think.

Meanwhile, DUTY CALLS!

Maxi & Agüero
GREECE: Seitaridis
U-21 SPAIN: Raúl García & Jurado

Key players will be playing for their countries. Here’s hoping everyone returns uninjured.

  1. Hi!
    Fantastic game last saturday. The whole team played with strength and courage. Now we need to beat Villarreal with the same weapons. Greetings!

    Raúl García and Jurado both started for Spain. Interesting to see that Jurado played as a central midfielder next to Raúl. Jurado scored after 6 minutes, Raúl García was subbed off for Javi García.

    I’m watching Argentina vs Egypt now, so far a boring match. Maxi had the best chance, but it was headed off the line

    I agree- I turned off the Egypt v Argentina friendly after the first half. It didn’t hold my attention as long as I expected…then again, it is a friendly and I always lose interest in them after I’ve seen a little bit!!

    You gave up on the Argentina game?
    What’s it worth to keep quiet?
