Bits & Bobs: More Training Shots/Presser Announcement, Etc.

15 Jul

Lots more training pictures, some Facebook shots, a Jailbait! cameo and the exciting news that Xabi & El Pirata will be representing the team at today’s press conference. Can’t wait for those pictures!

Iker posted two pictures on Facebook – one of him at practice and the other of him hanging with El Pirata and Sese (Sergio also tweeted the latter pic).

Here’s another shot of Ricardo Carvalho and Fábio Coentrão from their adventures yesterday. They both look very nice!

And last, but never ever least, our dearest Jailbait! practiced today at Valdebebas. He’s going to be playing for the U20 team which is why he isn’t on the pre-season tour. I wonder where he’s going to end up on loan? I’m going to miss him. Here he is in his national team kit.

Also at Valdebebas today: Lass, Drenthe and Pedro Leon. Drenthe has been bitching to anyone that will listen that he doesn’t want to go to Benfica. In my humble opinion? Take the deal, Drenthe. You’re lucky that a club like Benfica wants you.

Anyhow, back at some point later with training pictures and press conference yumminess!

    Such a great collection of amazing legs. Sese’s flexed up psoas muscle is killing me softly.

    Ah – cut the boy some slack!


    He’s had a shitty week with the Hercules captain accusing him of un-professionalism with the actual following statement: “I’m personally owed a year’s wages…” Madrid had no business loaning him out to a club that couldn’t pay him – and with their record I’d be nervous if I were him too!

    And as for that stupid manager – a year without pay!?!? How lame can you get? Drenthe is the only one on that team with any self-respect.

      Do you know the whole story of the situation? Drenthe’s behavior, etc? Drenthe’s history of behavior? Yes, Hercules should pay their players – no doubt about it. However, the financial state of most clubs in La Liga is abysmal. Also, Benfica is not Hercules by any stretch of the imagination. This is a good deal for him. I’m not cutting him any slack.
