Animo Iker!, Training And More

25 Jan

Iker-Casillas_2846915It’s really hard to concentrate on anything else but the fact that Iker had surgery today and two screws were put in. It’s being reported that the doctor says that ‘recovery in anything less than 12 weeks would be considered a success.’ THREE MONTHS? Argh. Poor woobins. Send some good thoughts his way for a quick recovery.

The team trained today for Sunday’s (extremely early – 6 AM Eastern!) clash with Getafe.

Rumors are swirling that we’ll be recruiting a more veteran keeper while the transfer window is still open. Julio Cesar’s name has been bandied about. I’m guessing Adan probably isn’t feeling too good about this, but god forbid something happens to him – If we don’t have experienced back up, we would be well and truly screwed.

Here’s the latest episode of Real Madrid Life, if they make the link private as they’ve done the last 3 times, I’ll replace this with the new video as soon as it’s up. (Not sure why they keep doing this!)

So the whole ridiculous Marca balagan continues. They’re claiming that they didn’t lie and put a copy of a What’s App conversation on their front cover as “proof” – here’s a shot with translation.

Ugh. Where are cute Enzo and puppy pictures to cleanse the palate when you need them?! We’ll have to make do with Sami’s hilarious reaction when he found out the he had been identified as a Barca player in a magazine.

Sami BarcaAh, Sami! And Shiggers, I suggest that you avert your eyes right now, because this next picture is as horrifying as it is confusing.

5519b222667711e2a45222000a9e06f4_7WHAT?! I’m just not even getting the correlation between the word ‘love’ (in bright red, no less!) and a brick wall. I’m sure Shigs could do a thesis on the level of foreboding this inspires in her. When she stops screaming, that is. This is just…weird.

Anyhoo…here’s a good read on who the deadliest finisher is in Europe. The answer might just surprise you.  And no, Shigs, this has nothing to do with Kaka. Get your mind out of the abattoir.

Some Sergio Ramos being Sergio Ramosy coming up in the next post!

    O well that sucks !!!!! I don’t want them to buy a replacement for Iker , what happens when he comes back ????? He becomes the number 2 ?????

    Wait ….. I’m confused , did I miss something ? What’s wrong with Kaka and Caroline’s photo ? I think it totes adores !!!!!

      They are reportedly looking for a loan till the end of the season to fill in.

      I think the brick wall filter thing is weird. Shigs thinks Kaka is a serial killer, so… I guess it’s just a matter of personal preference.

    argggghhhhhh! 12 weeks is a long time for Iker to be hanging out with Doce. I hope Adan and Jesus are able to make good of this opportunity.

    Marca needs to stop. Seriously.

    I’m so grateful that it’s Friday because I am going to need tonight and tomorrow to recover from these epic Iker-induced sads.

      He still managed a thumbs up – that’s encouraging, right?

      • CinematiqueChic January 25, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

        It’s encouraging, but 3 Iker-less months is s**tty, and I’m not eager to face Barca and United without him. Well, here’s hoping for lots of adorkable Instagram photos to get us through!

    Holy mother of goodness! He can come through walls now?! Nothing is safe! Where’s my pepper spray? AND he has a sidekick wall-walker?! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

    looks like carol just found the software that makes your photos look like billboards…

    the RM boys and their emojis is KILLING ME. nothing like a few little icons to turn them into the 14 year old girls they are at heart. the german press should know the difference between RM and barca, right?

    If it wasn’t for the barca and United games I’d said let adan play, Julio would be a good loan but then qpr would lose him and I can only imagine what the scoreline would be for poor old QPR

    Marca does not lie?!? Hahhahahahahahaha… Sorry, just had to let that out. Did someone from RM forget to send them their Christmas basket or something? The more they try to beat down on Mou, the more it becomes obvious that it’s just personal. And who would they rather have as manager? A Spaniard, ANY Spaniard? Sorry, not trying to stir up sh*t but when Flo himself tells you you’re full of it then it really is time to shut up already.
