A Big Ol’ Catch Up

10 Sep

Satellite (3)Well, I’m finally coming out  (slowly) of my post-trip sickness, just in time for my surgery on Friday. Yeehah! Since we never post on 9/11, I thought I’d try to catch up on all that that team has been up to since I headed off to England. It’s going to be picture heavy and text lite because I have been pretty much unable to watch anything for the better part of two weeks. Continue reading

UEFA Elite Club Coaches Forum

Sneakers? Really Pep, Luis?

Every September UEFA holds this two-day forum for a select group of managers to come together and discuss a variety of football issues, get shit-faced, and talk smack about the other managers.

RIP Fernando Zunzunegui

1 Sep

1409226790_extras_noticia_foton_7_1Former Real Madrid defender Fernando Zunzunegui passed away from a heart attack last week at the age of 70. Zunzunegui played for Los Blancos from 1965 to 1973, following a successful period at Celta Vigo. During his time, the team won two Copa del Reys (1970 and 1974) and four Liga titles (1967, 1968, 1969, and 1972). He eventually moved to Levante where he retired from the game. Two very nice obituaries are available here and here.

A moment of silence was held in his memory at the Castilla vs Getafe B game this past Saturday. Celta has announced they will observe a moment of silence on September 13 at their game vs Real Sociedad.

Rest in peace, Fernando.
