    And it’s (finally) official, the last remnants of my world have been smashed into a thousand pieces.

      ::hugs:: It’s a rough day for all Madridistas. Iker is a talisman for the club. Reminds me of when Raul left. End of an era.

    Sniff! I never thought I would see this day. No matter what, he will always be a part of Madrid!

    Wow. Ok. Another club legend of ours leaving unceremoniously and bitterly. How ridiculous! So. Flipping. Pissed. I can’t imagine not having Iker in our team and now he won’t even leave on a good note. I really just sometimes cannot handle the BS of this club. Ugh

      Fuckery and drama are our middle names. Why does this club have to be so messy? 😦

      Why can’t Flop learn to say goodbye properly?

    Yeah, this one hurts. He’s my hero. He’s been my hero since I was seventeen. I wish only good things for him going forward, but ow… It does hurt.

      It’s a sad moment, whether or not people like him, they have to admit seeing someone leave a club after 25 years is tough. He’s a potent symbol of Madridismo and it’s going to be a weird adjustment not seeing him in the net, with the team. 😦

    I think it’s such a shame the way Iker has been treated during his last few years at Real Madrid. He is a legend and is always a gentleman, no matter what. I hope he can be happy now.

    It is just so silly of the club to let a famed one-club man go like this. Would Roma do this to Totti? Differences aside, both parties would have benefitted from a big, warm send-off. He is someone who could become an ambassador for the club in a few years.

      Yeah, the era of the one-club man is pretty much over, methinks. Happened to Basti Schweinsteiger as well. Totti is part of a dying breed. 😦

    I really though he would retire at this club. Granted he was not same after his surgery but still, seems unreal. I cannot imagine Champion League games now with Iker not doing the captain thing. 😥
