Off to Oslo & Catching Up

8 Aug


Following the Audi Cup final the team had a day off before getting back to work on Friday. They play Valarenga in Oslo on Sunday.

The team worked on tactics and positioning as well as conditioning. An intense session ahead of the friendly. (Video)

The mothership published Pepe’s medical report.



A medical examination on the player in the Universitario Sanitas La Moraleja hospital has shown that he has a muscle injury in his right leg. His progress will be closely monitored.

The mothership also confirmed that they’ve reached an agreement with Deportivo Alaves in Segunda B for the transfer of Pacheco. The club retains a buy-back clause on the former Castilla keeper.

Best of luck to you, Fernando!

Social Media Corner:

How about some pretty?! The boys have been going social media happy lately and providing us with some goodness. Cris has been especially generous with the selfies!

Marcelo posted this shot with Bayern’s David Alaba

He also gave us a glance into his taste in music. His “bro” (his words, not mine) Young Money. Oh Marcelo….

Keylor shared this photo with James on the way back to Madrid from Bayern.

I’m bad at holding grudges and I thought this was classy from Xabi. He may not have been in love with Real Madrid when he first came from Liverpool but I think it was apparent he grew to love the club.

Xabi-lite posted this photo of himself and Pacheco to express good luck to his teammate.

Alright… I’m just going to give you some Cristiano pic spam. He’s been having a good time.

I can’t handle him. I get very non-plussed about him and then he goes and does these things. I laugh so hard that I can only declare my undying love for him. And I do freaking love him. It’s actually been amazing to watch him grow. I remember 18-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo well.

Bale also had some fun on social media. When Kroos was substituted against Bayern, Bale reached out for the obligatory high five but ToniLive! left him hangin’.

Luckily, he FINALLY got his high five on the way back to Madrid. Both he and Toni had a good laugh about it on Twitter.

Garebear also did a little golfing because why not? I dunno, golf isn’t my thing but I guess it could be relaxing if you live the life of chaos like these boys do? I’m too competitive for golf to ever be relaxing. I have bent putters while playing putt-putt. And I was 13.

Gareth also had to copy his one and only love, Crispy. Cris had given us a photo of his food saying “eat healthy” here and Bale gave us his shot just a day later.

I love social media, don’t you!

¡Hala Madrid!
