Holiday Break

Posted by atleti on December 22, 2008

Jornada 16: Espanyol 2 Atlético de Madrid 3
Two goals by Maxi and one by Kun. That’s four consecutive wins for us and a nine-game streak without a loss.

We find ourselves back in a Champions spot, thankfully:
1 Barcelona 41
2 Sevilla 31
3 Atlético 30
4 Valencia 30
5 Real Madrid 29
6 Villarreal 29

According to AS, 76% of our attempts at goal have come from Forlán, Agüero, Simao y Maxi. 29 of our 38 goals. We are, at the moment, the fifth team with the most goal-scoring: Barcelona (48), Anderletch (43), Hoffenheim (42) & Bayern Munich (39). Good company!

January’s Fixtures
Liga 3: away to Valencia.
Copa 7: home to Barcelona.
Liga 11: home to Athletic.
Copa 14: away to Barcelona.
Liga 18: away to Almeria.
Liga 25: away to Málaga.

Enjoy the holiday off!

    Hey everyone,

    Im really happy with my Atlético.. we’re in 3rd in La Liga, we’re now back to best teams in Europe, being in the Champions League Finals.
    I think that’s the way to keep Kun, Forlán, Simão and Maxi. They need this. We desearve this.

    Atleti, I really like the pictures you choose to the blog entries. They are always the best. Congrats.

    Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas to everyone. Jesus has borned!

    No big loss!!Although it’s a little worrying how lightweight our bench looks.Sinama,Camacho and Miguel need more minutes to find some form.

    both Maniche and Maxi are out, they’ll be replaced by Luis and Raul Garcia.

  14. fernandez said

    pathetic loss 3-1

  15. day1star said

    midfield was terrible. This is the game where Aguirre should have played 4 5 1.

  16. day1star said

    or 4 1 4 1.

  17. peter said

    We have conceded 21 goals away from home and only 5 at home.Time for a change in tactics?

    It’s obvious, I think, we have a dodgy defence. It’s a combination of mediocre players and bad defensive organization.
