Bits & Bobs: Arrival In NY, Transfer News And More

8 Aug

The team arrived last night and is hopefully scurrying somewhere around NYC where we can find them even as we speak.

And I have to ask, why Arbeloa are you sitting by yourself with Albiol behind you (not to mention keeping your aviators on)? Is Pipa teasing both of you by hanging out with Norma up front?  Tangled webs, boys, tangled webs.

Sergio tweeted that NY was a spectacular city and then tweeted a picture of New York New York hotel in Las Vegas. Dork.

Just in case we didn’t get the joke, he explained it and then posted a shot of the real Times Square.

You’ve got to work on your comedian skills, boo. Not exactly a knee slapper, that.

Here’s a longer video of the last training session at UCLA yesterday. Just a bit more footage.

Mou and Iker met with 6 of the top sports journalists at the Adidas store today for interviews (nice of them to let us know this was happening – at least a few fans found out). The journalists got customized shirts and the store was set up like a locker room. Pretty sweet!

It’s been officially announced that Castilla’s Joselu is off Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. However, Real Madrid added a repurchase option to the contract. Thankfully. I’m really sad to see him go.

While we’re at it with the transfer talk, here’s a rather lovely shot of Santi at Arsenal.

And just because I can’t resist… How much do his new girl touching habits please Xavi? Apparently, a lot because look! Mr. Grumpy is all smiles! (As is Villa – WTF?!) Now that he’s turned into an (alleged) stud muffin, he seems to be in a much better mood. How much you want to bet that he always chooses to be green in Parchis?

How Raul feels about the notion of “Xavi Hernandez, Stud”

The Brazilian Olympic team were treated to a little barbecue for reaching the finals. Pictures from Instagram and Captainfabfro.

And here is a fantastic gif of Enzo blowing kisses at his daddy during the match.

And now I must run as work is calling. Much to be done today before I leave early for the match. More later!

PS Lucas Moura has apparently just signed to PSG so that will end all the speculation of him coming to us or going to Manchester United.

    Forget Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte the real star of the olympics is Enzo! (and the women of the Islamic countries too)

    I have noticed that the pics and videos I’ve seen of Xavi since the pre-season started are very smily and happy. Someone got laid! 😀

    Here’s a little story for you all: I wore my Marcelo T-shirt today (cheers Peter!) and went to lunch at In N Out Burger. I looked down later and I had gotten ketchup right under Marcelo’s nose. I’m sorry I gave you a bloody nose, Marcelo! Love you! 🙂

    hahaha, allison, that’s a cute story!

    enzo is the cutest thing ever. can we adopt him collectively as the RM club mascot? can you imagine him in a teeny tiny kit?

    How much you want to bet that he always chooses to be green in Parchis? ahahahaha! love it. probably true, too. 😉 here’s hoping now that he’s getting some that he’ll lighten up with the attitude, too.

    i love that the muppet babies haven’t yet learnt to pose with the ubiquitous thumbs up. how long do you reckon before its brainwashed into them? 😀

    I may be out of the loop due to the Olympics, but who is the red head on the squad? I don’t recall ever seeing him before this!

      That would be Alex Fernandez from Castilla, who is sitting in the plane beside his luscious brother Nacho, also from Castilla.

        Oh, okay. Are they new additions to the team, or young RM babies?
