Karanka did the presser today and everyone was wondering where Mou was. He said that he was fine and just preparing for tomorrow’s match. So there. He wasn’t, say for instance, sleeping off a massive birthday hangover or anything. Not our Mou. He’s nose to the grindstone. Has anyone seen Maisougio yet this morning? She might be “preparing for tomorrow’s game” as well.
One other thing that Karanka said is we’re used to winning, not losing. Fair enough. That’s true.
Someone else had something to say about us and as per usual, it was Xavi. Remember how we all thought he said something nice about us the other day? Yeah, well, not so much. He was caught on video making what he thought were off camera remarks that we were bad losers and animals. Nice. (If any Spanish speaking watishistas want to translate the remarks, we would be most grateful). It takes two teams to tango, sir. In a Clasico, no one behaves impeccably, that’s for sure. So, shut up Xavi (if I had a dime for every time I said that, I wouldn’t have astronomical student loans. Speaking of student-y things, I have a paper that needs writing and work that needs doing, so I must get back to it.
