Well, for reasons no one seems able to fully explain, we have a match today.
Sabadell play in the Segunda and, by any measure, we should be far better than them. But, being far better than our opponent didn’t prevent us from getting knocked out of the Copa last year by Racing Santander. So lets not mess that up again. We have an amazing opportunity to go deep in this tournament, especially given our favorable draw.
Emery is clearly going to have a lot of player rotation. Some is by necessity with Iborra injured and Mbia and Coke unavailable due to sanction. However, he is going above and beyond that by not even choosing Bacca or Krychowiak for the team. I am fully in favor of this.
Anyway, lets win this game handily, with little drama, and hopefully get a chance to see some less featured players and youngsters make a contribution.
