A very special date

I’m not writing much today. It’s Christmas, a very special day in many places around the world, so I just hope you can spend the day in the company of your beloved ones. I do want to take this opportunity, being Christmas day, to say thanks to a lot of people.

We must follow our own path

As we said a week ago, we didn’t feel like remembering past games. All we wanted to do was to focus on the next challenges. The two wins that we got this week show that the team has the ability and the character to keep walking its path, moving forward instead of moaning when things don’t go the way we wanted.

Champions and derby in a crucial week

Once again I’m writing to you before an immiment match and that’s because the list of fixtures in December is very busy: from here to the end of the year we have eight games scheduled. Last week we had a double visit to London and we ended up with six points out of six. They were two tough wins, two difficult games.

A double trip to London

The week is having a strong start: tomorrow, Tuesday, we face Watford so we have to recover quickly and get ready for the game, there is no time to waste. Actually, this is the main challenge for professional clubs nowadays: finding the right balance between the work after and before two games when you only have three or four days in between.

The character of a comeback

Last Saturday was a happy start of a marathon of fixtures that will take us straight to Christmas, a series of games that will demand the maximum effort from us.
