Copa Del Rey Time & More

18 Dec

627-338-_CA_0680Thumb,8Today has been so busy, I’ll be lucky to get this post finished before kick off!

The boys are in concentracion until kick off time which is not all that long away (about an hour and a half from now).

The following players were called up (I add the video for your viewing pleasure because the dramatic music always gives me giggle fits).

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Diego López, Jesús.
Defenders: Pepe, Marcelo, Carvajal, Arbeloa, Nacho, Derik, Llorente.
Midfielders: Xabi Alonso, Casemiro, Di María, Isco, Illarra.
Forwards: Benzema, Jesé, Morata.

There was an update on Gareth’s condition. He has “an inflamed left calf muscle as a result of the knock he got from a team mate in training yesterday.” How would you like to be the person who mangled our $123 million dollar man? Can you imagine? “Um, DUDE, will you PLEASE be careful of him? We can’t afford a new one.” Or even better “You broke it, you pay for it.” :: gulp::  Anyhow, he’s not been ruled out for Sunday’s match against Valencia so it seems to be minor.

Sergio’s first yellow card from the Osasuna match was appealed by the club and reversed by the Competition Committee: “After admitting the video evidence provided by the club, the Committee determines that “there is no contact capable of causing knockdown” by leaving “disciplinary purposes without first warning and subsequent expulsion after seeing two”. This means Sergio will be available for Sunday.

You may or may not remember my rant in this post about the ladies fashion line in pink that Real Madrid was offering.  I said “If our men were rocking pink, I’d be rocking pink too.” Well, I may have to put my money where my mouth is next season. Footy Headlines is reporting that our away kit next year will be pink.  And not baby pink like PalermoLipstick pink.

Real Madrid 14-15 Away Kit Colors And The Ramos rejoiced! Was this some sort of perk to keep him from transferring? (There have been rumors, none of which I believe). I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

HALA MADRID! Let’s get out there and win today!

        No no… That’s included in the pink. I am going to assume it’ll be along the lines of My Little Pony. I think deep down Sergio is totally a Brony

      Yes, it will! Most of the boys, especially the dark haired ones will rock this pink. Poor Xabi, his gingerness will clash with this pink and he’ll look like Dunkin Donuts! And better this Hello Kitty Pink than that awful Cheeto Orange!

    I will rock the hell out of that pink jersey and so will our team. But mostly me.

    You know what? I don’t mind the pink so much…. there’s so much handsomeness in the team, they’ll probably pull it off

    The orange, though……. I’m still not crazy about it.
