Oh hey guys, with manager Julian Berllaque signing a new contract and as a result, dismissing rumours that Tim Sherwood had taken the Boca hot-seat, and after a summer of big changes in the Boca camp, the gaffer and his troops got their season underway on the 19th August (blog will follow). There were some big comings and goings throughout the summer, but with one of the most controversial episodes of the summer, more than the Luis Suarez bite, was the raging debate over the fan of the year award. Vishal Kainth refuses to accept he lost and he has since been seen outside BocaHQ with a placard asking for a vote recount, we’re pretty sure that’s not going to happen, but its funny to give him hope that there might be.
The Boca media team caught up with our Club Captain James Alvarez over a coffee and asked him a few quick questions about what the Boca-rones can expect from the upcoming season. He was happy to oblige and we thank him for that!
So what are your expectations for the new season?
I like to take it game by game. It’s a new league with many new teams and with ”segunda” certainly being the most competitive league in the world (in my opinion) it would be disrespectful to blatantly state that I think we are going to win it or get promoted. But we are certainly aiming to fulfill our potential and primarily play good football. Hopefully the results will follow and for the league standings to match the clubs ambitions! The sky is our limit!
How have the new signings adapted to training with their team-mates?
I predict crowd pleasing football with a team that will allow the gaffer to impart his philosophy of passing football, from defense to attack, with a never-say-die attitude. I hope this style of football in conjunction with our performance and effort levels will reward us with a well deserved first trophy! Lifting Boca’s first trophy (more so as captain) would be the proudest moment of my life!
