First Things First
This great man suffered a heartbreak as his impressive Castilla side were held to a draw against Eldese in their bid to finally achieve promotion. A last-minute failure, yes, but a great effort went to this. Let’s show this legend we support him no matter what!

But We All Remember How This Went Down Last Year
Yeah, I’m posting this, but please understand, I am also VERY cautious of this renewed Mbappe saga. I’ll be frank here; I would have preferred Kane at CF till (and if) Endrick is considered ready by our staff, rather than play Kylian out of position. I mean, he’s a striker too, yes, yet we know his preferred position belong to Vini here. Still, a player of Kylian’s caliber can always find a place here.
