Today I’m writing this post from the plane that will be taking us to Belgrade. We’re about to take off on our way to Serbia, where tomorrow we will continue our European campaign. It’s an important game.
I’m returning to the blog today after a few days of rest during the international break. A necessary ‘break’ to see everything from another perspective and to recharge our batteries for everything that we have ahead of us.
Today I am writing this before travelling to the Netherlands, where on Thursday we will pay AZ Alkmaar a visit in the Europa League. It’s a busy week, after Monday’s game against Arsenal and Sunday’s away match coming up versus Newcastle.
Today it’s Wednesday and time for our cup match, so I don’t want to write too much. The truth is that I am still feeling frustrated and disappointed from Sunday. It was a really painful defeat. Let’s hope that the outcome of today’s game will be entirely different, but honestly it is a horrible feeling.
On Thursday we play our first midweek game. A busy run of matches, away trips and flights… that’s what the next three weeks are going to be like. Therefore, we have to be prepared both physically and mentally.
