Celebrating The First Trophy Of The Season

13 Aug

SatelliteWatishista mygypsyspirit is working on a recap of yesterday’s UEFA Super Cup, so I have the honor of pic spamming the hell out of the celebrations.

We lifted the first trophy of the season after a strong showing. Let’s hope we lift five more! (I’m not greedy… Okay, I”m greedy.) We debuted our kits with the La Decima patch on it and I can’t help but think it’s good luck.

And family members were supporting the team both at the stadium and at home. The Bale family in particular were out in force and Martin added another medal to his collection.


Cristiano was named Man of the Match and it was presented to him by Sir Alex. CR7 was delighted to get the UEFA Super Cup because it’s the only trophy he was missing on the club level. Damn.

The Peez and the Mister were quite pleased with the win. As one would expect.

FROM REALMADRID.COM

Florentino Pérez: “We are very excited about this season”

“We have to keep improving and winning titles”, explained the Real Madrid president.

Florentino Pérez spoke to the press after the European Super Cup victory: “We have to thank Sevilla for their fight and behaviour. This is celebration for Spain and we should all be very happy. We didn’t play badly considering how little time we had to prepare and we are very excited about this season”.

“We have to continue improving the team and winning titles, that is Real Madrid’s history, and we have prepared for this season with that in mind”.

“With the reinforcements the standard of the team has improved, both players did well”, explained the Italian coach (advance – will update when full translated interview is available).

Carlo Ancelotti spoke to the press after the game against Sevilla: “We won by playing well, with a good idea of how to play and with a lot of confidence. It wasn’t easy preparing for this match because we didn’t have a lot of time, but the team has done really well. The Champions League win has given the squad more character and confidence”.

“Cristiano is completely recovered and there is nothing to be said about Bale of Benzema because they are both fantastic. Casillas was excellent tonight. What happened during the World Cup is forgotten, this is a new season for him and for us. He has everyone’s trust”.

Kroos and James’s debuts
“The new reinforcements have improved the standard of the team. Both players did very well today. Kroos was perfect, he played very well, was extremely quick and was clear with his ideas. James struggled a bit during the first half, but was great during the second”.

And here’s comments from Gareth, Cris & James:

The party raged on in the locker room and onto the plane.

And the mothership had a little behind the scenes video as the team got on the bus to head to the airport.

I’m so excited about this start to the season and heartened by how the new field players performed after such a short time with the team.

HALA MADRID!

    How appropriate the badge is located with the “Respect” badge. Eye movements either read the items as “La Decima – Respect” or “Respect – “La Decima”. Perfect either way.

    Start as you mean to go on!

    So when I sent the hungry Iker and Sese picture to a friend (who doesn’t follow sports) she said they were the cutest married couple she’d ever seen. I was laughing to hard at the perfection to point out the sad truth. 🙂

    That picture of Cris with his chin on Sese’s shoulder is just pure perfection! An instant favorite!
