More Portugal: Actually, A Ton of Cris & Fábio

29 May

More training pictures have surfaced from Portugal and they seem to basically only feature Cristiano and Fábio Coentrão. Apparently, the photogs have a crush. Not that I mind!

Crissy’s thighs are a thing of beauty


Bento: “Do you really like Mou better than me?

The photogs were all up on Fábio’s bidness and I have to admit, I’m very intrigued especially since the talk about him coming to Madrid is getting louder and louder in the press. This article even talks about Albiol leaving (!) which would free up space for him.

Cris and Fábio

The photogs attempt to get artsy

Nice and sweaty

Ooooh, pretty!

What I’m enjoying most about Fábio is his “Nando-ness” He’s got vintage Torres hair going on, tattoos in evidence (and I’m sure he can get more), potential to bromance with Sergio (Famos, anyone? Because then Sergio could shout down the phone at Nando those classic lines from Babies by Pulp: I know you won’t believe it’s true /I only went with her ‘cuz she looks like you/My god!) Let’s look at some evidence…

Concerned with hair: “”I think it needs a bit more gel, Silvio

Looks good in white

Can bring drama like Nando

Pretty decent bitchface potential

Similar fashion sense and wise choice of non-plastic-y  wife

Already experienced in straddling The Ramos

Nice arse. Not as epic as Nando’s but then, what is?

Nando vs. Fábio, World Cup 2010

So there you have it. Nando similarities, ability to be a defender or a midfielder, good cheekbones, friendship with Crissy. He has serious potential for great blog fodder if we scoop him up!

    Fabio is cute and all but… but… I really like Marcelo and don’t want him to be replaced. Especially if Chori will leave to make room for him. Alvaro can play left back if we need him to, and we already have enough midfielders as it is. 😦 Plus that vintage Nando hair doesn’t come cheap…

      As I said in a previous post comment, I don’t want Marcelo to leave either. Far from it. I was really surprised to hear of a mention of a Chori transfer. But since it’s a possibility that Fabio may end up coming our way, I think it’s fun to muse upon his prettiness, don’t you? It’s not meant to be a serious advocacy of the idea, just a bit of humor. We’ll end up with who we end up with. In Mou We Trust!
