A visit to Getafe brings back many fond memories (and something else)

The feature image this week is the monument in Getafe – the Lady of the Angels. Getafe has been considered the geographical center of the Iberian Peninsula. It’s other claim to fame is the football team, Getafe C.F. which was my first football contract.

I’m writing this in bed after a night of aches and pains, and the typical stomach flu symptoms. I won’t bore you or get into the gross details but I was relieved to discover some imodium in my first aid kit. I went to training last night and it started to hit with a vengence, so it looks like I will miss the game this week.

Before getting sick, I was thrilled to go and have a chat to the Getafe International Madrid Academy and answer their questions about studying and playing football. It is so exciting to see kids just a few years younger than me starting out on their journey and I can’t wait to see them out on the field.
