I watched a little at work while I worked out. I think it’s still early so I’m not surprised we were a bit unconvincing. But I have to say, I am SO excited about this team. There was a James shot on goal that was sort of amazing and I just started smiling. I LOVE that he’s ours. I’m sad Di Maria is gone. I’m sad that Real Madrid is the kind of team that rewards an amazing season (Di Ma last season) with a transfer just because shiny new toys (James) come along. But I accept it. And who didn’t fall in love with lil Hamez over the summer. I love that he’s ours, that he’s young and that he’ll only get better with age and experience. I love that we signed Kroos. I’m really excited about what he’ll bring. I’m thrilled that Gareth Bale didn’t play in the World Cup and that he seemingly just worked out non stop for 6 weeks and that he had a full pre-season with us. He’s phenomenal. I wish Arbeloa would get sold to a third division team in Russia. I’m still baffled by the goalie situation, that we bought a new one and sold Lopez. I love that Benzema scored today. I love that he renewed his contract and I love how much he loves this team. Basically I think this team could do unbelievable things this season. I think we’re a force to be reckoned with. I can not wait to see what we’re capable of.
Basically I love this team.
