- If you're playing catch-up for today's Getafe derby, Pedro scouted out Luis García's men and I previewed the match yesterday.
- Florentino Peréz spoke to the General Assembly today and had some noteworthy things to say besides the usual "President-speak." In regards to the season's objectives:
To win trophies, to win the tenth (European Cup) and to offer spectacular football are the challenges. We have laid the foundations to aspire to everything. There is only one destiny in the minds of Madrid supporters; to win and to challenge for that which seems impossible.
- Peréz praised the new residential area that the players are enjoying at the moment prior to a home match. He also announced a plan to revamp the club's website:
Very soon Realmadrid.com will have a new version, in line with the needs of the members. We are working to provide the greatest possible diffusion for RealmadridTV and so that it is transmitted via the internet
- Today is likely to be Gareth Bale's Bernabéu debut. We'll leave you with a bienvenido video put together over at Bernabéu Digital.
