08 January 2017

Another great day in Valencia.


Breakfast at 9 and depart at 10:30 for training at Paterna CF, a 3rd division club. Great facility and what a great training session. Best one with this young team.


Weather is nice again and full of sunshine and boys are looking sharp

Also, excited about whats coming later in the day!


Lunch at 2, great food again, nice nap for some while others do laundry and then we leave at 6:30 for Barcelona vs. Villarreal at Villarreal Stadium.  Great atmosphere, great stadium, and great energy.  Just awesome to see Barcelona play whether you are a Barcelona fan or not.  And to top if off, Messi scores a great free kick in the 89th minute!  Boys went nuts and we just had a fabulous time.

Pizza delivered to the hotel and we eat and meet in  my room, late though and we have early game tomorrow so boys off to bed.


Big game tomorrow and boys are flying high so excited to see how we do.

Wish us luck
