Jornada 4: Getafe v Atlético de Madrid

Posted by atleti on September 24, 2008

The other Madrid derbi!

On a personal note, I love that there’s a weekday fixture; I hate that I’m at work at the moment! I hope to watch it via Internet while I’m here though…

STARTING 11: Leo Franco, Pernía, Pablo, Ujfalusi, Seitaridis, Luis García, Assunçao, Maniche, Simao, Agüero & Sinama.

SUBS: Coupet, Antonio López, Perea, Raúl García, Maxi, Miguel, Banega, Camacho,

Getafe are playing 4-4-1-1 with Soldado as their main striker.

I don’t care how we win…whether it’s a narrow 0-1, or a 0-4 thrashing, or a crazy 4-3 result. Let’s just win.

Also: Nightmare rumour of the week? As mentioned by a blog commentator in the previous entry, Manchester City’s new owners apparently have their eyes set on KUN.

Speaking of which, special thanks to all blog commentators who share their thoughts, opinions, and news about the club/players! Much appreciated, as always!!!

    Villar are up by 2-0 against Racing and Barcelona are up by 2-0 against Betis, at the moment.

    BAD NEWS. Maniche is injured and was subbed out after only 16 minutes of action. Raúl is on.

  4. Mohammed said

    Yeah, I hope it’s not something serious. He was angry!

  5. atleti said

    More bad news: Sinama looks injured??

    Like I said before, I don’t care how we won as long we won. And we did.

  15. Ram said

    Good win.

  16. Mohammed said

    I didn’t see how they’ve scored their goal but I’m sure it had something to do with one of the three stooges Seitaridis, Pablo and Pernia.

  17. Mohammed said

    Yeah, it was a hard faught win.

    We played crap in the second half, first rule keep the ball, all we did was give the ball back to Getafe every chance we could. Poor passing, we were lucky that they weren’t very good in front of goal.
    Oh, yes, and now that i have vented my anger, what a sublime pass from Aguero to Maxi, that pass definitely deserved a goal.

  19. Mohammed said

    I think the problem is that we can’t pass the ball when under pressure. Remember Valladolid, They pressed from the beginning and kept pressing until they got what they wanted.

  20. Leivinha said

    Maniche’s absence and passing in the 2nd half must have hurt us. Hopefully his injury is not serious. He has been one of our best players in this early part of the season.

  21. Mohammed said

    Maniche is out of the next match against Sevilla (at least) :(
