Training, A Luncheon, Juan Mata Profile & More

14 May

I’m leaving for the airport in an hour or so if I can peel Max the Cat off me. He’s very sad. I hate leaving him behind but he’s not a beach sort of cat! Maisougio will be your daily Perv Concierge while I’m sunning my rivaling-Iker-Casillas-pallor in Mexico for a couple of days with watishista P. So this will be a drive by. The day has been textbook Lozil thus far. I tripped over my suitcase earlier and nearly knocked myself out. Never fails. I am the world’s biggest klutz. So I’ll be starting the vacation bruised but hopefully I’ve gotten all the drama out of the way. If I owe you an email, please forgive me – I’m totally behind on work, packing, everything. I’ll get on it when I return next week.

The team trained again today and the good news is that Mesut was back with them – hooray! Looks like he’ll be just fine for the final on Friday.

The team had a little get together luncheon after training today. Looks like it was a rainy day in Madrid but Marcelo brought the sunshine with his smile. They also signed and posed for waiting fans, although Cris managed an epic stank face. I can understand though. He must get it all the time no matter where he goes.

The Baby shared a picture on Facebook saying the operation was a success and thanked everyone for all their encouragement. Animo Baby!

BKOML8PCQAAXbtFWatishista Julia tweeted this shot with the comment:“Unclear if Hazard is celebrating Lamps’ record-breaking goal or Fer’s ovary-bursting bum. Quality.” I nearly wept with laughter. Well spotted!

He’s too adorable! I can’t get enough of Juan Mata. I wish they had interviewed Pirata as well. You can bet that’s where he got the Murakami book on his bedside table.

MLS side Portland Timbers have a large and vocal fanbase. The Timbers Army did a fantastic tifo in support of the LGBT community and against homophobia in the game. Thanks to watishista Mandi for sending this link to more pictures.The banner with the two players kissing is wonderful. The whole thing is just fabulous! Hala Timbers Army!

There’s beer in the fridge, I’ve left you a supply of Drools, don’t burn down the blog and mind your Maisougio. I’ll be back late Sunday night but will check in periodically and I’ll be cheering the boys on Friday from a beach bar TBD. HALA MADRID!

– Lozil

    First of all: Have a great holiday in Mexico – enjoy the sun 🙂 Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do 😉

    Nice to see the guys spending some time together before the big final on friday. What Spanish/Portuguese divide??

    Have you all seen THE most hilarious video from saturday’s game against Epanyol – poor Coentrao he was the laughing-stock.

      I’ve seriously checked here five times in the past few days waiting for a post with this video. Too damn funny. You know it’s bad when Benz is losing his shit at something you did!

      Love my Juanin, who’s been getting around with two or three recent magazine features as well. So much bromance in that breakfast interview.

      he looks so confused, I love Cris’ reaction 🙂

    What happens in Mexico, stays in Mexico – Ole’! Have a blast, and I’m sure we can bail you out if need be….

    Don’t get arrested. Don’t forget mygypsyspirit, S and I need you free to bail us out from Liverpool and/or London. Have fun! And yes, SPF is wonderful (they make it up to 85!).

    • mygypsyspirit May 15, 2013 at 8:24 am #

      Yeah… If I see Stevie G, I’ll definitely need to be bailed out of jail. Possibly if I see Juan Mata

    I did get the Go-Go’s reference in the tags! Sweet!

  6. Anna May 15, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    I really wonder what Irina thinks about Cris’ clothes sometimes…
    Have an amazing time in Mexico Lozil!

    Squee! From Company! Here’s to the gentlemen who lunch indeed! I’ll drink to that 😉

      My undying love! Company is my fave! I’m delighted someone else got that! 🙂 xo from Mexico where I have one sunburned arm and I’m sipping cerveza with lime.

    Has anyone else noticed that Sergio, Mesut, Luca and Higuain are all wearing what appears to be the same image of a woman on their T shirts? Does anyone know who she is?
