Hooray! Marcelo Is Back!

15 Aug

Oh, how we have missed seeing him wearing the kit of Real Madrid! It’ll be even more fun when the internationals return and everyone is finally reunited.Sky Sports is reporting that Luka Modric will be flying to Madrid tomorrow to finalize his transfer to our club. It remains to be seen whether it’s a done deal as the media is implying or more crap. Speaking of, rumors have been floating around that Xabi Alonso refused to renew his contract to Real Madrid. Just so you know, the rumor was originally printed in a Catalan newspaper and picked up by the media, spreading like wildfire. All I’m saying is consider the source before freaking out. I don’t think he’s going anywhere anytime soon.

And if you need a good giggle, head on over to Dirty Tackle as there is a new installment of Ask Kaka. Even Shiggers enjoys that!

    Can I just say I legit don’t comprehend this batch of friendlies and their timing? Isn’t every European country worthy of the name busy with their supercopas and shields and whatnot this week and the next and the start of the new season AAAAND the Europa League (shut up, some of us have sentimental favorites, not CL behemoths, OK??:p)?

    WTF. And what’s VdB thinking fielding *this* squad. Against Puerto Rico. Roy’s all: “Sure, whatever, Italy, we’ll toss Lampard the captain’s arm band, let him pet it longingly until Stevie comes back when we really need him” and VdB is playing a srs bzns lineup? There might be some PR considerations I’m missing, but still. Weird.

    Also, Germany against Argentina… durrr, your timing is awkward, people, for all of the above reasons and on top of that, Lahm just had a baby.

    Xabi gets to be captain though and be across the ocean from the BS rumor mill so that’s OK, I guess. LOL at ManU fans who were all excited about the club making a move for him though. *snort*

    Oh Marcelo looks so happy to be back. And I am super happy to have him back!! I agree with Caro about the timing of the friendlies. Horrible!! I hope our boys all come through unscath (esp since pipita looks all banged up in the post above this one).
    On a different note, this whole La Liga network in US SUCKS!!!!! Don’t get me wrong, it’s great for DirecTV (which my former landlords wouldn’t let us have though we had had them for years before). So I am stuck in a cable contract and have no access (outside of streaming questionable sites) to my league. REDIC!!!
    And the Liverpool fans excitment over the Xabi rumor had me in stitches (no offense Liverpool fans. I know that y’all loath that you got rid of him. I have never met one fan who was happy about the way that transfer went down).

      no offense Liverpool fans.

      None taken. What can I say, we’re extreme saps (and trust me, a lot of the excitement came with a good dose of self-deprecation about just how sappy and hopeless we are, or at least from what I’ve seen) and it doesn’t help that he LOVES that fucking club as much as we do.

      So we’re the fat, nerdy girl who pines for the quarterback (who is also kind of a massive nerd who GETS us and is nice to us on top of being sculpted by angels), but deep in our hearts we know that he’s not coming back to us.

      Still. For the purpose of this high school AU, ManU is Regina George and we all know how that ended.

    marcelo! welcome home!

    also, curious to see what will happen now that transfer season has started in earnest. and while i’m here, can someone explain why RVP is only worth £23 but RM is shelling out £26 for Modric?

    • kfunk22 August 15, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

      i meant those fees to be designated as millions. sigh.

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

        Hell, I was gonna be like 23 quid for RVP? I would have bought him and given him back to Arsenal for that. 🙂

        • suzanne August 15, 2012 at 8:41 pm #

          hell i’d buy him for my house boy for that, lol 😉

    welcome back, marcelo! 🙂 good to have you back in the fold again. i, too, can’t wait until everyone is reunited.

    i’m glad we won, but yeah, the timing is awkward and hopefully pipa’s injury isn’t serious (because that’s just what we need right before the start of the season, sigh).

    as IF xabi would be going anywhere. as. if.

    still not sure how i feel about luka modric …
