Monday In Nicosia

26 Mar

Training time in Cyprus! Everyone seems in good spirits. Man, every time I see those Nike Mercurial boots, I want a Starburst. They just make me hungry! They probably make watishisto Peter want to go jeans shopping! (Sorry, boo, couldn’t resist – I know you love your Ramos colored jeans!)

Iker looks so tiny!

Ooooh! Check out that side eye Mesut is giving Sami!

Cris gets his manties in a twist.

(Additional training shots via GFSPorts) Mou and Sami met the press today and I’ll post more pictures/a translation from that later. First up though, a piccie of  Drool alum and APOEL striker Esteban Solari.

Our fearless leader looks a bit more relaxed and happy, doesn’t he? Maybe a couple of days off from the media (and a hefty win) helps.

Meanwhile, back in Spain the suspended Xabi Alonso took advantage of his time off and upped the hipster cool stakes by posting this photo/tweet.

Sigh. What I wouldn’t give to be lazing around Spain having coffee with Xabi Alonso.

In wonderful news, our beloved Jailbait! is back to training with Valencia. Get well soon, Canales. We miss you so much.

    So when I go to Madrid I need to hang out at Gregory’s Cafeteria. Thanks for the tip Xabi 😉 I hope this starts off a hipster Instagram war. Your move Esteban!

    And I’m so glad for BB Sergio! Don’t rush yourself now!

    Iker: why this ball always come to my right!? To the left…to the left! ;P

    Mesut pay so much attention to what Sami is saying!

    You see what Cristiano is doing? He’s trying to move the Real Madrid bench AWAY from the 4th official so our coaches don’t get expelled.

    Xabi takes good photos. Nice play of light and shadow. Now does he put the ice into his coffee or his coffee into the glass of ice? Or maybe…he just likes to chew ice?
