Check this out – in certain light the new kit looks kinda purple or a really deep midnight blue but not grape like the 2010-2011 Champions League kit. Interesting.
Oh Calletti, if you are that skinny and have no hips, you cannot tuck your shirt in. You just can’t. You look like an ironing board (albeit a really hot one).
We may be seeing the new kits sooner than later as Marca is reporting that Real Madrid will begin it’s pre-season campaign v Moroccan champions Atletico Tetuan on July 24.
This picture of a teenaged Mesut with his classmates at the Bergerfeld School in Gelsenkirchen comes via @tosepower. I hope I never become famous because if I do, I’m going to have to collect and burn every high school yearbook photo that I ever appeared in.
Alvaro was enjoying a day off from the national team and he spent it with his wife, Carlota. He tweeted this gorgeous picture of her.
I think she is so gorgeous – naturally beautiful. He also tweeted a picture of a kid’s Spartan play set costume! Ha! Wonder if he’s going to add this to his collection of costumes? He’s got army, pilot, etc. Of course, the mind goes to all sorts of filthy role play scenarios with that particular Spartan (said Albiol).
Sid Lowe has put up his annual Sid Awards – his complete review of the La Liga season. A great read as always.
Lots of new shirts to buy to support your favorite team in the Euros! Didi has these name shirts. Unfortunately the Spain, France and England shirts have players on them that aren’t going to be at the Euros (Soldado, Gourcuff and Lampard). Bummer.
Our beloved watishisto Peter has lots of national team based shirts at his Skreened shop too!
And while these shirts at the Hala Skreened shop aren’t Euros-centric, they’re awesome for the Madridistas among us!
All the shirts from Skreened (Peter & Hala’s) come in a variety of colors and sizes. Go forth and shop!
