Monday Training, A Few Bits & Bobs

10 Dec

The boys trained to day – the first session of the week as they prepare for Wednesday’s Copa Del Rey match against Celta.

Looking a bit surly there, Iker!

Recovering birthday boy Pipita posed with the shirt from Iker’s upcoming charity match. Geeker, being the total grandpa that he is, wished Pipa a happy birthday and cautioned him that it goes by fast.

Silva and his brother NandoBenz managed to take post a picture of himself without duckface, but he’s still alone. Baby steps.

      Stop Sign pointed that out to me earlier… Poor guy

      i don’t think it actually is. his pants are designed in such a way that the stitching acts like quilting, making the soft cotton puff up a bit in that certain special area. but it is fun to dream, n’est ce pa?

        They look like sweatpants to me so they won’t have a zipper. I think it’s just the drawstring lying in an unfortunate position.

    Awww, Benz isn’t alone. Well, I mean it’s not a selfie, so someone actually took that of him. And probably told him to drop the duckface. Baby step 2 might be to look after that thing sprouting atop his head. Ok, will now go google baby bro Silva. What a cutie!

    Is it me, or does Nando Jimenez Silva resemble Alexandre Pato with straight hair a bit? Or probably a young Raul Albiol?

    And that Chelsea pic! I saw the Instagram photos that Ramires, Lucas, Oscar and Juanin posted and gawd are they all adorable. Nando seems to be leading the guapo bunch well. XD

      I see it, the Pato resemblance!

      Thank you! That is what I came to post! But he’s good-looking 😉

    estaban’s twitter and instagram are things of joy. 🙂

    i would love to see what david silva’s parents look like — he and his brother look nothing alike to me (but are both adorable)! i’m always fascinated by how genetics reveals itself in offspring.

    I think Silva’s brother is 18. I remember an article years ago where it had their ages and he was 8 years younger than Silva who is now 26 so I’m guessing Nando is 18. That would be legally a man in the UK and Spain. Nothing really happens here when you turn 21.
