The End….for now

4 Jun


I’ve changed my mind. I take it back. I don’t want this season to be over & done, I’m just not ready. I thought I had made my peace with the fact that Mou would no longer be with us next season, along with a number of our players, but…..come the final match, all my acceptance went right out the window. Seeing Mou in the tunnel, seeing the boys chat in the tunnel, waiting for the beginning of the end, it just did me in and then Pipa goes and drops a bomb the size of his ass, saying he wants to leave?? My life officially became a Cymbalta commercial. No joke. My iTunes library certainly wasn’t helping the matter either, putting together the saddest shuffles known to man. Talk about Ode to Depression. I know at this point, there’s nothing we can do but try and figure out how to deal….it’s not going to be easy, but hopefully launching into NT mode will help. And cake. And lots of ice cream. And lots of sobbing into your ice cream. WAHHHH!

Sergio, Iker, & Pepe cameo appearances *sniffle* Boys in tunnel *double sniffle*

Sniffle inducing pictures aside, Cristiano was on hand before the match, to collect his Healthiest Player award. I’m not going to knock his bright blue pants, because I actually like them, but I will knock the fact that either, 1. His shirts are too short, lift when he reaches, & show off his underwear band or 2. He wears his pants too low & don’t cover his underwear band. I know he models underwear and I love me some of those photoshoots, but no, no, no, to having your underwear stick out above your pants. It’s not cute when girls let their G-string/thongs show and it’s not cute when guys do it either…..great, now I’m thinking of Cristiano in a G-string. Man-string?

From accepting his award to kicking back & enjoying the match with Sergio & Sami, I wonder where Iker & Pepe watched from.

16 😦 Mou was courteous enough to give us one last shot of the Mouberries. Bless you, Mou.



Check that time stamp, not even a minute into his last match & there was already drama! To be fair, Mou was indirectly responsible for the media storming the pitch. I love how Mou kept his cool the whole time, I would’ve been tempted to turn around and pretend it was my very own photoshoot! 😉


The Bernabeu was full of Mou related signs on Saturday, some in support of Mou & some not so much.


An easy one – ‘Thank you Mou’


‘Goodbye Mou, thanks for nothing.’


‘See you never Mou’


‘Thanks Mourinho for not being manipulated by the press, you have defended Real Madrid club. Some players didn’t behave. Hala Madrid.’


‘Mourinho, thanks for fighting against all odds.’


Self explanatory – ‘Mout’


‘Alone against all, thank you Mou’

@davidjaca tweeted that someone held a sign reading “Casillas and other traitors, leave the Bernabéu. Mourinho, stay.” What a nice banner, huh? Assholes. Apparently the banner was taken away by security. I know that’s one thing I won’t miss next season, Iker vs Mou drama.

I found it hard to focus on the match, with all the emotions I was feeling, and going almost the whole first half without a goal was helping with my unfocusedness (?), but eventually Captain Pipa opened up the scoring with a one-two kick-POW to the net.

That’s how a big booty mang do it!

It’s just not fair that I may not be able to say these types of things, regularly, next season.

You gorgeous hunk of man meat…don’t my words make you feel loved?

Some three minutes later, we put ourselves two ahead, this time by way of Essien. Daddy’s boy headed the ball in from an Ozi corner.

Essien always seemed like a sweet guy, we’ll miss you!

There was no more goal action to be had in the first half, but that’s not to say there was no more action at all…  Pipita got physical, physical with a mystery Osasuna player. I say mystery, because for starters, his face doesn’t belong to the name of the player I thought he was AND curiously, there is no number 35 on their squad. Maybe Pipita was fighting an impostor, who knows, but the importance of this segment in my game post IS, Di Maria’s face. He don’t put up with that shit, hands off his bebe.

You tell ’em, Dobby.

Osasuna first started to catch up in the 52nd minute, with a goal from Roberto Torres. Ten minutes later, they had equalized with Cejudo’s goal. But it was our final match, at the Bernabeu, in the sunshine, that meant we weren’t done! Ozil was on the assisting end of another fabby fab, this time with Benz on the scoring end. I love big booty goals!

And I love when two big booty bros get together.

With the last minutes of Moudom winding down, Mou decided to debut two more players, adding to his long list. In the 81st minute, Omar came in for Ozil and in the 85th minute, Llorente came in for Arbeloa.

Here’s the list of players that debuted under Mou during his three seasons at RM.


Our last goal came via Callejon! Benz was in a ‘pay it forward’ mood and assisted. There you have it, our last goal of the 12/13 La Liga season!



Our boys :’)




I’d like to thank Mr. Karim Benzema for this shot, just when I was about to get teary, collecting photos for this post, I saw this & cracked up. You gotta love the unintentional goofball! And thank you to Mr. Mou, for three seasons & three trophies. After the final whistle, he gave a simple wave and was gone…



Booty-tooch your exit, Mister!

…well he was gone, until he came back out for the Ultras, who waited 15 minutes after the match for him. They gave Mou a plaque & he posed for pictures with them.


Then he was gone.

Post Match Comments




Ricardo Carvalho started in the last league match at the Santiago Bernabeu, in which he said farewell to Real Madrid: “Every ball I touched, every step I made, I knew it was the last, so it was a bit of a difficult feeling. But I want to thank the fans and hopefully they will remember me as a professional who always wanted to give my best to help everyone. It has been a pleasure to play here.”

The Portuguese took stock of his career at Real Madrid: “Since I signed for Real Madrid, whenever I had the chance, I played. The first year was very good, I played almost every match. But then I had problems, injuries, and I’ve never been at the level that I was at in that first year. This third year has been very difficult, because at centre-back there were Sergio Ramos, Varane and Pepe … But I’m happy because when I was at a good level physically I helped the team a lot.” Finally, he spoke about how pleased he was with the win over Osasuna: “It was a tough match but in the end we won, which is the most important thing.”




Jesus was the starting goalkeeper in Real Madrid’s win against Osasuna and was happy with the hard work done throughout the season: “I’m happy; after working with the first team all season, playing this match is a great reward. I thank the coach, my teammates and the fans, who have helped me in this match.”

About Mourinho’s departure, he said: “He is leaving on good terms with everyone. He has thanked us for what we have done as we have thanked him. It is important to have made my debut this season and I’m very happy about that.”



Omar debuted with the first team against Osasuna and summed up his feelings on this special day for him: “I am very happy, I did not expect this because it was the last day of the season. It has made me feel thrilled, I really wanted it to arrive. Mourinho told me before leaving to enjoy the moment, it is a big field but he told me to live for the moment with my teammates. I felt great with them, they have helped me and they have made it very easy for me. We work every day for this on the reserve team. We hope that it will increase each year.”



Llorente also lived his debut with the first team on the last game of the season. The Real Madrid C defender was very grateful for the opportunity: “Mourinho told me to enjoy, and that is what I have done. It is a very special day for me, so I thank him and the coaching staff for the opportunity. The coach has treated the reserve team very well and he told us to continue fighting, we should listen to him, and I wish him well in his future endeavours. “

The reserve player also talked about his dream of playing on the first team: “You never really imagine your debut, you go out on the field and enjoy. This team, you see it on television and, suddenly, to be on the field with them is just wonderful. “



Alvaro Arbeloa started in the last league match and spoke about the squad’s attitude during the match against Osasuna: “We all wanted to win this match, because that’s what we always want. It’s been a tough season and when objectives are not achieved you are keen to finish things to be able to start the next season with enthusiasm.”

The Real Madrid player was asked about Mourinho’s departure: “We respect his decision, the club’s too, and wish him well. We all know that we have taken a major leap in competitiveness and we knew we could have achieved a lot, but due to small details or bad luck it was not to be. He has had his successes and failures, as we have all had but he gave his all and defended Real Madrid above everything.”


The Pipita Mixed Zone Bomb:

“I’m leaving Real Madrid. It’s been seven years here and the decision was taken calmly. It’s not a hot-headed reaction. I was never given anything on a plate here. I’ve always had to fight to the death. I came for €12 million, and they’ll sell me for more. I’ve achieved a lot here.”

“I want to go somewhere they show they really want me, I know Juventus wants me, but nothing is set in stone.”

“I want to put an end to the matter. I’m leaving behind friends, teammates… It’s not an easy decision, but I want a change of scenery.”


I almost don’t want to end this post! Adios, La Liga, until next time.

    Okay so I’m not the only one who feels like she can’t deal with this. That’s good. But it’s also bad, because I might go crazy. Sigh. Football, eh?

      CLUB football. Been a football fan for years but purposefully avoided club football because of all the drama and politics. Good ol’ international football was enough for me. Little theatrics. The best can play on the national team. No horrid in-fighting and/or transfers. End of. Then along comes Mesut and I can’t get enough of watching him play so I hesitantly start following him (and Sami) at Real and GODDAMNIT it is as I feared. I got sucked in and it’s too late to turn back! I should have taken the blue pill…

        My story too MissLadya, my story too!!

      I’d type out the lyrics to ‘You Are Not Alone’ but it may make me weep again.

    It was an … odd game. I only recently had the chance to download and watch it in its entirety and it was not a comfortable viewing, even despite the goals. Mou was subdued. The Bernabeu was divided between his supporters and critics; there were chants and boos and applause and whistles. We got four great goals but the players’ celebrations were halfhearted. They were playing in the afternoon (which, granted, isn’t so much awkward as it’s … jarring. Am used to the matches being at night). And then it was all over and no one quite knew what to do with themselves before just leaving.

    New season. New start. New players. All of these are fine with me. The only downside, of course, is that the arrival of new players means the departure of current players. I was more stunned midway through the match when one of the commentators casually mentioned that Callejon probably played his last game for Real; that he’s also up for the transfer market, than I was about Pipita leaving. Essien presumably is heading back to Chelsea with Mou. Carvalho’s off to Monaco. Undoubtedly the issue of Kaká will bubble up again as well. To my absolute horror, rumours of Suarez coming to Real are multiplying. (DON’T LIKE HIM. AT ALL. STAY AWAY, YOU CHEAT.) And we don’t even have a coach! Oh, I’m not looking forward to the next couple of months 😦

    I don’t know why Pipita’s announcement post-match didn’t come as a surprise to me. Only then did he confirm it, but I’d been hearing rumours since the start of the year and so had plenty of time to brace and accept it. Of course, now everyone’s playing Guess Who as to who will sign him. First he was allegedly just a signature away from joining Juventus. Now (in the past 24 or so hours) suddenly word of Arsenal’s popped up. I know next to nothing about EPL clubs. From what I’ve heard Arsenal’s an … okay(??) club? Van Persie played there for what seemed like forever. But from a purely bromantic point of view I’m thinking a Podolski/Pipita team-up would be marvelous. Plus, Captain Booty playing for Arsenal: oh, the “arse”-related puns will keep me busy all weekend!

      Arsenal is ok (just made the top 4) but lacking in trophys in recent years. He is young so definitely what they are looking for. Tottenham is also another name I have seen been thrown about.

    Sad day! Wherever Pipita goes, I hope they utilize him to his full potential and that he is happy…cuz the only thing better than a full on Pipita booty shot is his “soy muy feliz” smile. Oh, and I hope Directv carries the games!

  4. Mel June 5, 2013 at 5:42 am #

    NOOOOOOOOOO! I don’t want Pipa to leave. Applebum can’t leave. Losing Mou is hard enough. But I understand him. He’s hated in Spain but loved in England, so that’s a no brainer!
    But Pipa. Argh! I understand, he wants a change in scenery, I’m at that point myself, but I love him, and it hurts so bad to see him go.
    Hopefully, Granero returns! That will make it less painfull!

    Osasuna’s #32 is Unai Garcia, a canterano making his La Liga debut and got booked with his first yellow card. He got CaPipita all hot and bothered and booked, too.

    I am not looking forward to all the changes, but am resigned that this season will bring monumental changes to the core team. Please, CaPipita, go somewhere where we can watch you and keep track of your booty!

    • jellyace June 5, 2013 at 8:52 am #

      And one more thing:

  6. CinematiqueChic June 5, 2013 at 8:52 am #

    So many conflicting emotions about this match. Calleti getting our last goal of the season, and he might be sold. Pipita serving as captain and scoring, and he’ll be off too. I think the Mou exit is the right thing, but it was still hard. Overall, I’m glad to put this season behind us, but I hate the end of club football and not knowing what’s in store for us.

    I’m desperately hoping that Spain, Brazil and Italy make it far in the Confederations Cup so I at least get to see some of my boys for longer.
