This is what I look forward to when I eventually move to Spain is to see all these small towns and catch a match while doing so. I’ve had the best experiences just driving around Spain and discovering these hole-in-the-wall places.
@SurreySevilla we actually just last year had a first match in Granada, but agreed that these matches end up requiring us to rack up a lot of unnecessary travel to far flung places. No real sense in it all beyond the political theater of it all. First couple rounds still shouldn’t involve First Division teams, that’s my thinking.
Notice anything wrong with this article from Marca?
Something different about Manu Bueno’s hair this year…
Speaking of the real Manu Bueno, is anyone disappointed that he didn’t get loaned out? I can understand him not being held for the first team this year, but weird to leave him playing in 4th division after playing in a ton of huge matches for us last year.
Yeah, I bet that’s 80% of the squad vs Roma in the final last year. Just need Marcão available as a sub (can you guys believe Marcão played in that match and was only a handful of shots away from having the take a PK for us?)
