Yep, it’s time for another bloody (hopefully not literally!) El Clasico. Raise your hand if you’re sick of this nonsense. ::raises both hands::
The boys did a light training session before heading off to the airport. This required much thumbs upping, as usual.
Don’t you just love the massive shadow of Calleti’s thumb on the bus. Very ominous!
Some folks didn’t fall prey to the finger imperative They chose to look hot, moody, cute or some combination of the three.
Los Blancos have already arrived in Barcelona where they were greeted by very enthusiastic fans, even Pepe. I see someone loves their Calleti from the poster in evidence – it shows up again in another shot as well (and Albiol is pointing it out).
They certainly featured Pepe enough, didn’t they? Also, what’s with all the moody darkly lit Sergio pictures lately?! I miss his smile so much.
REAL MADRID SQUAD
Goalkeepers: Casillas, Adan and Jesus.
Defenders: Ramos, Marcelo, Varane, Albiol, Pepe, Coentrão, Arbeloa and Carvalho.
Midfielders: Lass, Xabi Alonso, Ozil, Callejon, Sahin, Granero, Kaka and Altintop.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain and Benzema.
Very happy to see Sahin and Granero along for the ride. Maybe they’ll see some playing time, which would be nice.
I just want (and need) my team to kick out the jams today and make this happen. But no matter what goes down today, HALA MADRID! NOW AND FOREVER!
