The bench is Joel Robles; Javi García, Junior, Kaptoum, Joaquin, Lainez, and Loren.

Note: Yet again (it is amazing how busy I have been the last few weeks) I will be on the road while our match is going on, so will have to rely on everyone to police themselves. Limited swearing, please, unless we’re up by two goals with five minutes to play, we get a player sent off, and the other team comes back to draw from a corner kick we never should have given up. Oh, I forget, that already happened. Well, you get my point. Have fun but be nice, as my grandmother used to say!

Other news: Our Juvenil A team won at Lorca, 3-1, to capture its group championship again; they’ll compete for the overall Juvenil A title and also in the Copa del Rey for that division. And Villarreal B got a goal from Simón Moreno to defeat Espanyol B 1-0, so we are now second in the table again on 55, 4 behind Atletico Baleares. Villarreal C defeated Atzaneta 4-3 and are comfortably mid-table, 13 points ahead of the drop zone and about as many below the playoff positions with six matches remaining in their season.
