Trolling, Stretching And Roberto Carlos!

12 Feb

Someone at RealMadrid.com is a big ol’ troll. I woke up and saw the front page and snorted with laughter, our number 10 Mesut was featured in a victory pose. Now, as you all probably know, if we beat Levante today, we’ll be 10 points over Barca in La Liga. The theme continued inside.

My theory on all this? Let’s win the game first, then gloat. As we know, Levante has been able to throw some major curve balls this season. They’ve gone from from barely escaping relegation to fourth in the table and they beat us in September. I am very, very wary of counting my chickens before they are hatched. We can’t afford to get cocky. A lot can happen between now and May. I know, I’m being a total killjoy, but I want to win so bad I’m afraid to jinx it.

The boys went to Valdebebas this morning to do some stretching and the pictures are straight up boring, so I’ll just share this one.

What was exciting about the session was that the legendary Roberto Carlos came by to visit! He was a Blanco from 1996-2007. Of the current team, only Iker, Sergio, Marcelo and Pipita played with him. In the past Marcelo has said that Roberto was his idol, so that must account for the huge grin on his face here.

I love all the big genuine grins from everyone. Real Madrid is fittingly going to honor Roberto today. He’s one of the greats of the game and still going strong, currently in Russia at Anzhi as player/captain/manager.

    I know that we shouldn’t celebrate before we win but the way I see it is that we have such confidence in our team that we know they will win 🙂
