Really? No idea. Maybe they're here to help the earthquake rebuilding.:drunk::drunk:

I know Juventus are coming without all the big stars, though.:wallbang:

Anyway I won't be going unless Valencia comes but... that's not likely.

I had hoped Spain could pay more attention to the Olympics...:moan::moan:

I'm all for it, we need a lengthly preseason for all of Vicente, Sunny, Banega, Angulo (if he's staying), Morientes etc. to get match fit. Plus it'll give Pablo and del Horno time to fit in again and also Unai time to know who to keep and who give the finger to.

Our most successful years under Benitez, we used to put a lot of effort in to preseasons with double training sessions etc.

It can back fire though if not done and planned properly. We don't want to be fatigued by December.

The Eufa cup is more tiresome than the CL IMO, mainly due to the places you have to travel, the time you have to play and not to mention that games are played only two days before the League matches start.

3 days I think.

They won't make us play on Thursday then on Saturday.

But you never know with Villar in charge:rolleyes:
He'd probably make Real and Barca play on Sunday (even though they played on Wed/Tue), and us on Saturday:pp

That also depends on if we have an upcoming game on midweek like Tuesdays or Wednesdays in the Liga or Copa.

Oh and leave Villar alone, Madridistas mainly like to use him as an excuse whenever something goes wrong for them :finger: :pp

Yeah so we'll have half our players injured before the season even starts :D

Anyway I think playing English teams are a good way to regain fitness and focus, because of the way they play. They do too much shit, too fast :pp
