Are You Ready?

30 Jan

Concentraciýn (3)Lots of meetings and racing around today has kept me from an update. Perhaps it’s for the best – gave me less time to stress. The Clasico is upon us!

The boys went to the Sheraton Mirasierra earlier to hang out and cool their jets (or you know, fire ’em up) pre-match.

The following players were called up:

Goalkeepers: Adán, Diego López and Jesús.
Defenders: Arbeloa, Marcelo, Albiol, Varane and Carvalho.
Midfielders: Modric, Alonso, Khedira, Özil, Kaká, Callejón and Essien.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Higuaín and Morata.

The team is, of course, at the Bernabeu now – I wonder if their stomachs are in knots as well?

And the starting line up is…::drumroll::

Diego López,  Essien, Varane, Carvalho, Arbeloa, Xabi Alonso, Khedira, Özil, Callejón, Cristiano & Benzema

Interesting….

The fans are out in full force to cheer on our team. We need the support now more than ever.

Here’s a bonus Sergio shot to keep us busy courtesy of gayforpodolski. Slightly dodgy trousers and another one of his Virgin Mary graphic tops. Tamer than usual.

        My god this match!!! It was sooo much better than what I expected with some brilliant footy. Rafa rocked and Babi blew me away. LOL I think I need to stop if I’m starting to rhyme stuff.

    I decided to take a nap a couple of hours before the match which was at 4am here. I slept right thru the match in my RM jersey and missed Rapha’s brilliant game and goal. Arrrggghhh! But I am happy for our Bebe who is now a man, the Man of the Match no less!
