Week 3 ~ Granada at Home:
I never intended to make the 'things to know' posts a regular thing but I am really starting to like them even if no one is reading them.Things to know:
The game is Sunday at 19:50 local time. If you need a conversion comment.
Our call ups look like this:
* Casillas, Adán y Pacheco.
* Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Albiol, Pepe, Arbeloa y Varane.
* Özil, Xabi Alonso, Khedira, Essien, Modric, Callejón, Di María y Kaká.
* Cris, Benzema e Higuaín.
Granada's looks like this:
Tono, Roberto, Nyom, Inigo, Mainz, Borja, Siqueira, Angulo, Ortiz, Mikel Rico, Moises, Jaime, Orellana, Brahimi, Torje, Floro, El Arabi, Machis
Sadly Karanka seems to think Essien is important for this season. I hope he is just spewing the RM rhetoric. He usually seems fairly intelligent. He is hoping we can capitalize on our recent win with the Supercopa and really so am I. Our recent la liga showings have left me sad. He also talked a bit about Kaka not leaving. I think he is hiding something. Kaka was supposed to be gone. Karanka talked about how it was and we must look forward and do what is best for the team. Yes, I'm jaded on the subject. Kaka should be gone. Prove me wrong.
Fabio Coentrao is suspended. :(
Granada's Manolo Lucena had a knee knock during training. Pape Diakhate is recovering from an ankle injury. Their midfield is missing Fran Rico (RM Castilla 2008–2011) and Hassan Yebda.
We haven't gone three games without a win since May 2009. I would like to see that stand. Granada is on a four game winless streak in la liga with a carry over from last season. Lets hope we can make it five.
Cris cost more than the entire squad Granada have assembled.
We are 5 points behind Barcelona, not where we want to be. Clearly. If you have a link to watch it , please share in the comments. If you want to talk during the game, comment. I'll be here.1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5
