Prep For Valladolid Continues

20 Aug

Yes, I still exist! This was the first pre-season I haven’t covered in 8 years – I wanted to but I just couldn’t. I’ve been in the midst of classes, freelance work, job hunting and just getting my life together in general.

So it has been a whirlwind of a summer which has finally resulted in a new job (starting Monday!) which is both terrifying and exciting. Because I knew I wouldn’t be able to take any vacation time for at least 6 months, I went off on a spur of the moment trip to Bermuda.  It was awesome – just got back. Anyhow, I missed the first game and the Lukita red card (which is being appealed). But it was a victory and for that I am grateful. Let’s continue with that, shall we then?

The team continued their prep for Saturday’s match vs. Valladolid.  (Video) Zizou called up Diego Altube, Fran García and Kubo from Castilla for the session. We already have a lot of injuries: Asensio (who had surgery), Brahim Díaz ( a recent casualty), Rodrygo,Ferland Mendy and Hazard all are working on their recoveries. The latter did complete part of the session with the team. Mariano worked indoors.

I am looking forward to watching football again. It has had to take such a back seat to necessary day to day stuff. It will be refreshing to just stress about Real Madrid again. That said, let’s hope they don’t stress us too much!

Here’s to the new season!
