New, comments

Sorry for the lack of content. As maddi mentioned, we've both been slammed at work. Thanks to our wonderful readers for keeping the site running.

An update on the B team over the past 2 weeks:

In the last hours of the transfer window, the B team made 3 personnel moves. Out went Bruno Renan (to Shakhtar Donetsk for €1.5 million); in came Danish under-21 striker Nicki Bille Nielsen and our old friend Marquitos (on loan from Valladolid).

In Jornada 2, the B team triumphed 1-0 over Albacete. Check out the golazo scored by Airam, last season's pichichi of Segunda B with Tenerife B:

And earlier today, the B team thrashed Ponferradina 1-5 at the modest El Toralín. The goals came from the expected sources: Iago Falqué, Facundo Coria, Nicki Bille Nielsen (2), and Marcos Gullón. Fantastic debut for the young Danish striker.

Now that the B team squad has been reinforced, can we expect another top-half finish this year? All signs point to yes. What do you think?

Stay tuned for a match preview tomorrow. It's been a long 2 weeks.
