The Booty’s Back And It’s Better Than Ever, An Ikerview, The World’s Ugliest Couch And More

19 Oct

Hello Pipita Applebum!

Damn, that boy’s arse is spectacular! Well, I’m finally home from work and I’m going to sneak in a quick post. The team trained today (one more tomorrow) along with the returning Pipa, his bum, Fideo and bebes Ríos, Álex, Lucas, and Jesé.

Ooof. Karim, that hair has GOT to go. You’re definitely one of those guys that looks better with a shaved head, methinks. Speaking of, erm, bald(ing), Iker spoke about the Copa Del Rey and opponent Alcoyano (among other things) while at a Philips promotional event.


Casillas: “People are very fond of me and respect me; it’s something I’m very proud of”
by Edu Bueno

“Against Alcoyano we have to maintain our track record of the last few years if we are going to reach the final of the Copa del Rey”, the Real Madrid captain added

Iker Casillas spoke about the current situation of the team in white and in particular the draw for the Copa del Rey at a promotional event in Madrid: “You have to give Alcoyano the respect they deserve, but we must maintain our record over the last few years if we are going to reach the final of the Copa del Rey”. When asked how he feels about being an idol for so many fans, he replied: “people are very fond of me and they respect me a lot. It’s something I’m very proud of. I try to do things the best I can so that they enjoy watching Real Madrid and the national team play”.

The draw for the Copa del Rey that took place at noon today means a first encounter with Alcoyano and possibly meeting Barcelona in the semi-finals, something that doesn’t worry the Real Madrid captain right now: “There’s a lot ahead of us and we have to get through two qualifying rounds. Now we must focus on Alcoyano. We’ve had some unpleasant surprises against humble teams and we have to maintain our record over the last few years if we are going to reach the final of the Copa del Rey. You have to give Alcoyano the respect they deserve because they have nothing to lose and everything to play for”.

Real Madrid will play Celta this Saturday with several defenders out due to injury. Nevertheless, Casillas has faith in Madrid’s defence in depth: “We have enough alternatives to plug the gaps left by the FIFA virus. There are players in our reserves who are very capable indeed. I am sure the boss will pick the best people for the game against Celta”. Asked if he knew how to as a left or right-back, the goalkeeper said with a smile: “The things I do, I do them right and if I don’t know how to do them right, then I don’t do them”.

He doesn’t look on himself as an idol. He just does his job as well as he can and he explains it like this: “People are very fond of me and they respect me a lot. It’s something I’m very proud of. I try to do things as well as I can so that they enjoy watching Real Madrid and the national team play”. When it comes to critical voices, Casillas is aware that he has to live with them: “You take them with a sense of humour. You have to respect people’s right to criticize. As long as it’s constructive criticism, it’s a positive thing. When you’ve been at the top and in a club like Real Madrid this long you know that in two or three matches things can change. I’ve been living many years with this. You have to keep going and try to turn those contrary voices around”.

The Madrid goalkeeper was asked about Falcao’s excellent form currently and whether he would fit in at Madrid. Casillas said he would stick with the forwards the team has now: “He’s a really great striker and he has proven it again and again in recent years. I think it’s part of the spectacle and part of football. They are just rumours, that’s all. Falcao can help us very little or not at all this season. For me, the players we have at Real Madrid are what count most, they are what I care about and the ones who have to be at their best to help us”.

Also, the Real goalkeeper sidestepped the controversy about his statements on social networks: “We all have to live with them. I expressed an opinion on my personal Facebook page. I thought it was the right thing to say and I only said it to clear up a few things and nothing more and that is the medium I chose to do it”. Finally, he referred also to the video recording which Barcelona allegedly made about Pepe: “I would be surprised if that type of video had been made. I don’t believe that a player should be recorded on video alone for any reason and I think it would be unworthy of a club like Barcelona”.

Lots of bits and bobs today. GF Sports found the real estate listing for Sergio’s house which is on the market. Oh, boy, is it a doozy. I wonder if Guti is his interior decorator. That couch is foul.

It’s even tackier than I imagined. But yeah, that’s where the magic happens, folks. Oy. If Sergio’s house looks like this, I can’t even imagine what excesses Guti’s holds.

Marcelo & doggies seem to be the favorite subjects of the social media outings this week. Calleti posted a picture of himself with Marcelo from last season’s celebrations saying “Animo Amigo!”

Marcelo is spending his recuperation time hanging out with his brother in law, Caio and puppies Bella & Uly. Of course, much to our delight, he’s posting pictures of it.

Curro Callejon Ponsati also made an appearance rolled up in a blankie in a picture posted by his mama, Marta. Why does no one post pictures of their kittehs? Do they not have any? I know Marcelo has a few but are the entire team dog lovers? On behalf of Max the cat, I’m insulted!

Alas, that’s enough for me tonight. Time to get to bed. Another action packed work day awaits me. I’m excited for some footy action this weekend. It will be good to see the non-mangled boys back in action.

    I dunno..Sergios house isn’t nearly as tacky as I imagined. His bedroom is so boring! Fabulous kitchen though!

  2. kristine October 19, 2012 at 12:17 am #

    Oh, and what blandness of a closet hides the treasures of Sergios wardrobe!

  3. mariko October 19, 2012 at 12:35 am #

    Could someone please inform me on what that big yellow spaceship looking thing is in the bathroom? Is it a spray tan bed?

    • headbandsandheartbreak October 19, 2012 at 12:36 am #

      Yeah, it looks like some sort of a tanning booth. Argh.

      • Miss_F October 19, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

        I thought it was a tanning booth too… It would explain the ‘healthy glow’ 😉

    • Kellybean October 19, 2012 at 12:42 am #

      I had the same question! Definitely looks like some sort of spray tan booth. *smh* The rest of the house is more subdued than I imagined. I really wish the photographer had opened the closet doors so we could get a glimpse of the horrors that are hanging inside.

    • em October 19, 2012 at 7:39 am #

      hyperbaric chamber? but those you usually lie down in… Time machine? He doesn’t seem like the Dr. Who sort… Probably a tanning machine. That guy is so tacky. But that’s not news, is it?

      • Anonymous October 19, 2012 at 9:16 am #

        It does look like a time machine. I wonder where he’d go?

        • maisoun October 19, 2012 at 11:50 am #

          Probably back to 1970 to hang & sing with Camaron de la Isla 😛

      • Charliechaz October 19, 2012 at 11:06 am #

        Someone on another site mentioned it might be a giant Dalek! But I think it’s probably a tanning booth because you can’t get any sun in Spain !

    • Phédre October 19, 2012 at 12:29 pm #

      I’m just going to go in complete denial over this and convince myself it’s a futuristic looking infrared-cabine …

    • Anna October 19, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

      is that what it is?! hahaha, i think i just died, no way, that really shouldn’t surprise me though

  4. Lizzie October 19, 2012 at 12:58 am #

    Sergio selling his house? He must of decided to finally move in with Özil,I mean they share clothes and Sergio likes how Özil cooks. ….excuse me while I imagine them possibly rooming together having dinner and wine, then heading to the bedroom and…trying each others clothes….

  5. black widow October 19, 2012 at 1:02 am #

    huh. it isn’t nearly as bad as i imagined — the outside is horrid, but the inside is (relatively) nice. but, is that an … eagle … on the shelf above his bed? WTF? and that spray tan booth thingie reminds me of a dalek.

    i love iker’s smile lines so much. 🙂 🙂

    • MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 6:10 am #

      Dalek! YES! I thought the exact same thing. For one rather tragically geeky moment I went, “OMG! Sergio’s a fellow Who-vian!” I mean, that SO would have explained his wardrobe! Stick a piece of vegetable in his pocket and we’ve got ourselves the Doctor’s final regeneration! XD

      • black widow October 19, 2012 at 8:51 pm #

        am trying to picture sese with a long stripey scarf and overcoat … nah, can’t do it. 😉

    • headbandsandheartbreak October 19, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

      Yep, that’s an eagle. In this post there’s a picture he tweeted back in 2011 of his bed and plush eagle head. I can’t even…

      • black widow October 19, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

        oh, i remember that now! okay, so now i’m thinking (hoping?) that it’s a sentimental jokey thing — that he lifted it from his hotel room that time as a reminder of the nice thing his teammates did for him for his birthday. if that’s the case, that’s kind of sweet, actually. 🙂

    • Anna October 19, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

      i’m so glad i decided to read all of the comments with this post, i hadn’t noticed most of these observations and the pictures are soooooo much funnier- i jsut nearly cried when i scrolled back up and saw the eagle above his bed. too funny

      • black widow October 19, 2012 at 8:47 pm #

        i mean, really, WTF *IS* that? is it a stuffed animal? is it a sculpture? was it a gift? (god, i hope so, because who on earth would buy it for themselves?) and regardless of how it came into your life, why on earth would you put it above your BED, like some sort of bachelor pad object d’art? then again, this is sergio …

  6. Natalie October 19, 2012 at 1:13 am #

    I honestly could not wait till I saw a post of Sergio’s house listing (I found out about it earlier in the day on another page). I honestly did not expect THAT couch!!!!! Hope he gets a better decorator for his next one and looses eagle heads and tanning booth along the way!!!!

  7. CinematiqueChic October 19, 2012 at 4:40 am #

    You know, while there are some real stand out horrors going on there (eagle head??? zebra print rug!!! HIDEOUS velvet couch) it’s much duller than I’d imagined. Hopefully next time he’ll skip the tanning bed and spring for the decorator.

    And while we’re on the subject of Sergio, I love that photo of him and Modric. Luka’s looking smitten. I mean, that’s basically what I would look like if Sergio ever had his arm around me.

    • MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 6:18 am #

      Sergio, you slut! Mesut hacks his beautiful long hair off in tribute to you, and how do you repay him? By hitting on Luka and his beautiful long hair. Guess you have a headband fetish! 😛

      • CinematiqueChic October 19, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

        I think we all know Sergio can’t control himself around his teammates. And who can blame him? Though if it IS a headband fetish, own several myself. Maybe that’s my in 😛

    • Charliechaz October 19, 2012 at 11:10 am #

      Totally agree as to the truly awful decor…velvet, eagle heads, wood paneled ceiling….I’m like WHAT! Now imagine him picking out his outfits surrounded in that mess. Sitting on that couch in tight green pants! Or doing one last mirror check in the zebra covered foyer. Too much !

      As for Mesut….I keep not noticing him because I still look for the old hair. I’m like who’s the new guy with the cropped hair, new transfer?! …No its just Mesut, whew!

    • shiggers October 19, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

      Thank you for mentioning the zebra print welcome rug.

      • CinematiqueChic October 19, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

        That thing is hall of fame hideous. And exactly the type of thing I always imagined would grace Sergio’s home.

        • black widow October 19, 2012 at 8:53 pm #

          shamefully raises hand …

          i … kind of … like it?

          • CinematiqueChic October 20, 2012 at 4:44 am #

            Respect to you for honesty!

            I like it inasmuch as it is the perfect rug for Sergio.

  8. MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 6:32 am #

    Is it wrong that one of my greatest ambitions in life is to see Pipita in tight yoga pants, preferably bending over … ?

    Also, I initially agreed with most of you here that–the atrocious couch and the stuffed eagle head(??) above the bed aside–Sergio’s house isn’t nearly as tacky as I thought it would be … until then I realized that a crucial element’s missing in these pictures, namely Sergio himself. Photoshop him in one of his usual outfits into the pics and the tacky factor would shave at least half a million euros off the house’s asking price XD

    But he’s moving?? Awwwww! Now he’s no longer neighbours with Bambi!

    • em October 19, 2012 at 7:42 am #

      Pipita – down dog – ayyyyyyyyyy Papi!!!!!!!! who wouldn’t spank that????

      • M October 19, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

        Ok, I’d pay to see this!!

    • headbandsandheartbreak October 19, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

      Well, this is as close as I can help you get to that ambition. And if you want to see how his teammates feel about that badonk, feast your eyes on this.

      • MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

        Thank you! Well, that’s my evening sorted. Was gonna watch a movie, but I think I’ll get more enjoyment out of watching that badonkadonk in motion. I do love the fact that he doesn’t react to the stroking, only jumping when Arbeloa gives it a pinch. Am I to conclude that groping Pipita’s bum is common practice in the team? XD

  9. Dia October 19, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    I think maybe the broker removed all of Sergio’s stuff and “staged” these photos. I expected way worse from Sergio. I’d LOVE to see Guti’s place.

  10. Miss_F October 19, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    Girls you need to take a moment and have a glimpse of the junk in Benzema’s trunk! There were a few shots in the Spain game over the weekend that really accentuated the well rounded-ness! 😉

    • Anonymous October 19, 2012 at 1:27 pm #

      I always have a good glimpse at it

  11. Phédre October 19, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    Oh my, Pipita! Such a sight for sore eyes. I’m having visions of RM playing against Chelsea now, combining Pipita’s, Torres’ and Hazard’s butts… On the other hand, I don’t think I would survive.

    I do like some parts of Sese’s house. Great bathroom (minus the gold whatever-that-is), kitchen, livingroom. Hideous couch, ceiling, hallway. His bedroom is quite dull. You would also think with a mirrored dressing like that, he’s able to see what he’s wearing …
    I guess with the current situation in Spain it’s going to be on the market for some time. I didn’t know real estate was this expensive in Spain. Although Moraleja is a fancy neighbourhood, the price is ridiculous.

  12. Danielle October 19, 2012 at 2:31 pm #

    What a lovely house. I’d be happy to move in with him. Something about this house is reminding me of ‘Footballers Wives’, did anyone used to watch that? I miss it.

    • Allison October 19, 2012 at 10:24 pm #

      Footballers Wives! What was that bitch’s name? Tanya? Ooh, they should totally do a remake!

  13. number1barcachick October 19, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    sergio why are you moving 😦 and did he and mesut live directly beside each other? and secondly sergio i would be a really good decorator fabulous taste cause your house is dull as hell and also pipa’s lovely bum sigh it is also my ambition to see the man in tight pants bending over but man madrid vs chealse that would be a good bum off Phédre you left off mata his bum is looking quite nice 🙂

  14. mel October 19, 2012 at 5:35 pm # Pipita is selling his house too!

    • MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

      Pipita too? Where the fuck are they all moving to?? And can their new locations be traced using Google maps? >:D
      (Meanwhile, in a part of my brain I’ve long quarantined but which I do peek in every now and then for nostalgia’s sake, my inner sixteen-year-old obsessive fanfic writer is plotting a oneshot in which Sergio and Ramos move in with Özil and things take a turn for NC-17 ratings … Thank God I stopped writing fanfiction years ago: as long as it stays in my head and not be released in detail online I have nothing to regret XD)

      • MissLadya October 19, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

        LOL * Sergio and Pipita

        • number1barcachick October 19, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

          hmm write it 🙂

      • Phédre October 20, 2012 at 10:38 am #

        Rumours say Sese has already bought another property in La Finca, a part of Pozuelo de Alcaron. Cristiano, Kaka, Benzema, Mou and some others live there too. It’s a lot more private than Moraleja. Don’t know which one is Sese’s but you can easily find Cristiano’s, it’s right in front of one of the lakes.

  15. Katie Ann October 19, 2012 at 10:22 pm #

    Smiling Iker = me turning into a sappy mushball. I love that man.

    Can’t say much about most of Sergio’s house, but I do have serious closet envy.

    • Allison October 19, 2012 at 10:25 pm #

      Nobody has said anything about Iker. He looks gorgeous in those pics. So, so handsome. ❤

  16. drea October 20, 2012 at 7:10 am #

    All I can say about Sergio’s house is AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… His main living room looks like the set of a 70s porn flick (don’t ask). I just can’t with these crimes against upholstery. Maybe it looks better at night when the lights are strategically lit? Wait, isn’t this the house that was once owned by original Ronaldo? Maybe some of the dated elements are from back then.

    […] today and truth be told it’s nowhere near as bad as Sergio’s (behold the disaster in this post).  Sure, there’s some leopard print and a whole bunch of pictures of himself and his […]
