It’s Official: Bye Bye Peter Lion

31 Aug

From RealMadrid.com:

Real Madrid C. F. and Getafe C. F. have reached an agreement by which Pedro Leon will be loaned out to the latter club. Getafe C. F. reserve the right to purchase the player at the end of the present season.

Thanks to watishista! Mari who broke the news via the comments section this morning (I’m so glad some of you wake up way earlier than I do!). I haven’t had time to do any write ups since I’ve been in meetings all day.

    Has anyone else seen the rumors about Fernando Gago going to Roma on loan? It makes me weepy, makes me miss old school Real with our long haired #5! dominating the midfield.

      Yep, looks like it’s a done deal along with Drenthe to Everton. Just waiting for the official announcements.

      Hey, are you the same Aguante Pipita that is in our Fantasy Football League? You haven’t picked any players yet, so you’re in last place. Make sure you pick players before the next game or do you want me to remove your account?

        Yup that’s me, I’m East Coast so Irene was not good to me this weekend. So I’ll be sure to update, don’t want to be in last place. Thanks! 🙂

          Oh no! I hope everything is getting better – I’m in NYC and there’s quite a few other East Coast folks here as well.

            Nothing us NYCers can’t handle….It’s official Fernando Gago has been loaned to Roma for the 2011-2012 season with option to purchase.

    Personally, I’m glad that Gago is gone. He frequently made niggling mistakes that led to turnovers in the middle. He just doesn’t have the forward vision of Guti or Becks and he can’t hold like Xabi. Madrid’s quality has moved well past Gago’s.
    Glad to see Drenthe moving to Everton. They need a guy with his explosive speed, especially now that Xabi’s buddy, M. Arteta, has moved on to Arsenal.
    So, our sweet little Lion cub, Peter has gone back to Getafe. He will play every weekend and score some goals. And he looks oh-so fabulous in Burger King Blue! Can’t wait to see him hugging Migi Torres again.
    Mereiles to Chelski is a major coup, BTW. Arsenal should have made more of an effort to pick him up. Too bad. Chelski is suddenly looking pretty bad ass and the Gunners appear to be going nowhere fast.
