Most of the week we train in the morning before having an optional gym session in the afternoon. However there's a slightly inverted schedule on the day before the game. There was an optional breakfast this morning (attended dutifully by Marcus Hahnemann) but our training session isn't until this afternoon. Head coach Bob Bradley and team captain Carlos Bocanegra will attend a press conference at the Tehelné pole this afternoon, meaning they'll head over to the stadium about a half hour before the rest of the team. Once the guys get there it's a short session: one hour. It's a day, as Bob said to the guys at lunch, to work on team stuff, set pieces and get everyone ready for tomorow's game. The late training session today means the guys are taking the opportunity to, you guessed it, nap and rest. Perhaps we will do the same?
