Bits & Bobs: Leave Pipita Alone!, First Team Pix & Nando The Supermodel

15 Aug

Our Pipita Applebum got mangled not once, but TWICE in the first half of the match against Germany today. LEAVE PIPITA ALONE! (Was this hit arranged by Sami to keep him from moving in on Mesut?)
Tough old coot that he is, Pipita played on. (Pipita screenshots courtesy of MGEF)

GF Sports had the official 2012-2013 season pictures of the team (except for Jesus, Marcelo & Carvalho). Awesome! It’s just like school picture day! Here they are in no particular order…

They’re all looking mighty fine. Well, Coentrao always looks like he’s been rolled out of a tip while stoned and then forced to grimace. Bless. For a handsome man, he doesn’t photograph very well sometimes, does he?

I’ll tell you who does photograph well: Nando. Here he is getting his supermodel on for Chelsea (via GF Sports)

Niiiice! Works for me when he gives just a tiny bit of superior bitchface action. Not enough to start wearing Chelsea gear, mind, but I certainly enjoy it.

More later!

    The “LEAVE PIPITA ALONE” reminds me of a youtube video from a few years ago that involved a sobbing girl saying “LEAVE TIM TEBOW ALONE!!” i died lauging when i read that

        Oooh, wait until you see some of the pictures that are coming up from Yankees Stadium. His eyes are mesmerizing!

          oh my gosh! I went to that game and I absolutely LOVED it! Ramos’ goal= out of this world! :O It was an amazing game ❤

            It was great fun! I was there too. A bunch of folks are sharing their pix. We’ll have them up once we watermark them.

    Poor coentrao he looks so confused:(

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 15, 2012 at 8:22 pm #

      He does. Like he’s been stunned by a blunt object. I love him though.

      • Olivia August 15, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

        Don’t we all 😉

        • Allison August 15, 2012 at 11:17 pm #

          That reminds me of the Crackovia Coentrao. Sometimes they are so dead on!

  3. Akemi August 15, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    OH GOD MORATA?!?! @.@

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 15, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

      Yeah, bb graduated. 🙂

      • Akemi August 15, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

        No I mean… LOOK AT HIS…. face.

        Urgh. BB needs a shave. 😦

        • headbandsandheartbreak August 15, 2012 at 9:02 pm #

          I think he’s just so proud that he can grow facial hair now. Gotta show it off a bit. 😉

          • Akemi August 15, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

            LOL. Fabs and BB looks like deer caught in headlights in their pics though hahaha.

  4. Allison August 15, 2012 at 8:17 pm #

    I don’t understand why they schedule these friendlies right before the leagues all start. Poor Pipa.

    I hope Sese does something about his hair color when he gets back to Madrid. Its looking a bit orange these days. Is he trying to steal Xabi’s look… a little bit gingy maybe?

  6. Kristine August 15, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    They all look a little sweaty and shiny.

  7. Katie Ann August 15, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    I really want to take those shots and put yearbook superlatives on them. You know- most likely to succeed, class clown, etc… Also, Iker’s either blushing or he caught a bit of sun, and either way I find it adorable. And I want Nando’s hoodie. Just because. Heh.

    Dear Shiggers: You were right. You were always right.

    Kaka’s pic looks like he’s dead in the eyes and proudly posing for a mugshot 😦

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 15, 2012 at 11:00 pm #

      HAHAHA! She’ll appreciate that when she reads it. 🙂 Tyra Banks would not approve of his lack of smizing, that’s for sure!

  9. number1barcachick August 15, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

    fabio .c everytime i see him just looks drunk to me and kaka lol mug shot but nando my my my looking quite sexy and pipa’s applebum never looked better

  10. black widow August 15, 2012 at 11:44 pm #

    dear lord in heaven above, did they not have a mirror present at the photoshoot? or at least a comb? could they not at least have had tissues or a towel available to dampen the shine a bit? did they not get a second take?

    some of those photos are pretty good (xabi, obviously, iker, sergio, mou, nuri, lass, verane, arbeloa), but some of them … oh dear. and much as i love kaka, shiggers has a very valid point in this photo. he looks deranged. mind you, coentrao looks dazed and confused, albiol looks like he’s having a mugshot taken and one half of cristiano’s face doesn’t seem to quite match the other.

    then again, i suppose we should just be grateful that they aren’t all posing with their thumbs up …

    • black widow August 15, 2012 at 11:45 pm #

      oh, and the most important thing: morata!!!!! i take it this means he’s officially called up?! *squees*

  11. Keena August 16, 2012 at 3:09 am #

    How adorable is that Morata boy!

    Also: wtf is going on w/ Kaka’s & Nando’s hait? Ricki should def try and copy that flawless hair of Nuricorn. And speaking of hair – i do like that Fabio is back with the blond, it fits him.

    Now, i can only hope my school picture this year is as good (or that the boys in my school would look like that.)

    Hahaha love it! Since the pictures are large (all the better to stalk with) when I scrolled down to Callejon’s photo the first thing I saw was his hair! Damn that must give him a few extra inches on the top! And Benzies got the fakest smile on. Coentrao looks like he just woke up from being drunkover and realised he’s gotta solve a math problem. And di Maria, he really looks like a young un’ in that photo. Black widow: I agree, Cris has some assymetry going on their along with a very crooked hairline.

    Despite all these crits, these boys are just too gorgeous and I wouldn’t change anything about them, clean them up a bit maybe but not change 🙂 after all, God didn’t make any ugly people, just beauty from different angles 🙂

    Thanks again you hbandhb lovelies for posting 🙂 always a pleasure to read.

    PS. Una isn’t blogging anymore 😦 sadness

    • jellyace August 17, 2012 at 10:40 am #

      Yes, I know. Una has retired her blog. One more happy place gone. *sigh*

  13. Matea August 16, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

    Is that a rosary under Pepe’s shirt? sweet 🙂
    And Pirata is giving us “The Look”.. i don’t know what kind of look it is, but i like it!

  14. Utd Girl August 16, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    Oh my God! Is it just me or does Nando look like Ryan Lochte??

    Mmmm Sergio and Alvaro are looking mighty fine!
