    Mate, how did u translate the text? It sucks.

    Anyway, big lose, but I think that we can still continue trying players, and training to grow as more as possible to 2011. I see that Nico Vergallo is a decent replacement for Pichot.

    Sorry, my english isn´t very good jeje.

    Vergallo is a decent player but it´s quite far of Pichot´s level. I like too much Figuerola, from Casi.
