Bits & Bobs: Presser, Squad List, Concentracion, Some Things Never Change And We Finally Get A Look At Omer Sahin!

18 Aug

The boys had their last training today before kicking off the La Liga season tomorrow against Valencia. The mothership gifted us with this pump up video.  Mesut actually says something besides “Soy muy feliz!”

I was going to post excerpts from the interview but the translation on the website had lots of mistakes and weird wording. Besides, what we really want to know is called up for tomorrow.


Goalkeepers: Casillas, Adan and Jesus.

Defenders: Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Coentrao, Albiol, Arbeloa and Varane.

Midfielders: Kaka, Ozil, Xabi Alonso, Granero, Khedira, Lass, and Di María and Callejón.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuain and Morata.

Iker was the source of some unintentional hilarity with this shot that was on the Real Madrid main page today.

Uncle Geeker says “Follow me! This way to total dorkdom!”

It is adorable and goofy. Kinda like Iker himself. He also posted a shot with Marcelo asking everyone if they were ready for the season to begin. To which I answer “HELLS YEAH!”

The boys got themselves to concentratin’ at the Mirasierra Suites, as they have a tendency to do. Video and pictures, ahoy!

Of course while they’re on concentracion, they have a tendency to tweet. Pirata wanted us to know that his hipster taste is intact by sharing Wanda Jackson’s Funnel of Love while Sergio left us with yet another power ballad: 90 Minutos by his friend India Martinez.

Speaking of Sergio, all is right in the world because he was spotted in the mall today. It looks like he’s in Best Buy or something. What does the man buy?! He must have everything in the world due to his daily trips. He’s secretly in a mall walking club, I just know it.

My dear friend watishista P has been in a funk over Robin Van Persie leaving Arsenal for Manchester United. If there’s one thing that she loves more than she loved RVP, it’s Gerard Pique so here he is in Mango’s Winter 2012-2013 collection.

Chin up, boo! Brighter days are ahead. One person who might end up at Arsenal on loan is Nuri Sahin (if Liverpool doesn’t snag him). He tweeted a thank you today to all of his Twitter and Facebook followers. What was extra exciting is that he included a picture of his son Omer! This is the first time I’ve seen a picture of the little woobins and he’s absolutely adorable.

And with that, I must leave you. I’m off to a party at the aforementioned watishista P’s house. Have a wonderful Saturday night everyone!

    Pique is gorgeous, even a denim (!?) blazer.

      The denim blazer made me cringe. But I know Pique didn’t dress himself for the shoot, so it’s not his fault.

    Losing Nuri and gaining Modric is throwing the Team Pretty balance all out of whack. Nuri, don’t leave us!!

      OMG! I sooo agree with you:) Plus, Nuri’s got a baby Pretty in the form of Omer :3 ❤

    Dear Mango,

    I don’t care how you try to glamp it up, that’s a Canadian tuxedo you’ve put on PQ, stop fronting.

    LMAO at Uncle Geeker, that’s one of the best captions I’ve ever read in football fandom.:)

    I’m nowhere near as invested in La Liga as I am in the EPL (OK, I’m not invested at all by comparison, football can ONLY be srs bzns for me in England) but I’m still looking forward to it mostly cause I hate Barcelona, it’s the only OOMPH I have in me as a football fan when it comes to Spain. (Also, lots of Ginger action to torment me and turn me into a hormonal mess).

    I’m a horrible person.

    But at least I’m aware of it.

    Nuri and Omer are so adorable!!! I can’t get over he look Omer is giving in the first picture, and don’t even get me started on the matching tshirts… Just signed up to the HB fantasy football and realised that my knowledge of players outside of Madrid and the EPL is appalling, but I’ll give it a go anyway 🙂 also, Kaka, I love you, but please cut your hair soon!!!!!

    The Terminator theme? Serious lulz

    lol i was so excited to hear mesut say something besides “soy muy feliz” in spanish. but he spoke in german. 😦

    i secretly think he only says a few sentences in spanish to make it seem like he doesn’t understand spanish so that he doesn’t have to deal with interviews.

    • MissLadya August 19, 2012 at 3:13 am #

      ikr?? Here I am thinking, “Yes, Bambi has expanded his Spanish vocabulary?? All well set to the Terminator theme?! Oh, this is gonna be AWESOME!!” … and then he speaks in German. Fucking random! XD

    I have also been in a funk over RvP, but a Barca player just makes me feel worse 😉

    I feel good about Santi though. And I am glad young Jack got the #10. Now he just needs to get fit again! And I could look at the lovely Olivier Giroud all day. At the end of the day, players come and go, I guess. At least we have Arsene.

    That video was so epic.

    I love Marcelo’s Brazil headphones!
