Prepping For Sevilla, A Farewell And A Birthday

17 Jan

Well, we’re through to the next round of the CDR, but honestly, the game was a snooze. Literally, for me. I fell asleep for the last 20 minutes. That’s not good. But we’re through and Isco got to play.


We meet Sevilla on Saturday and the team began preparing today. Solari called up Castilla’s Cristo, Jaume and Javi Sánchez. Benz and Thibaut rejoined the group today while Vallejo, Asensio, Kroos, Bale, Mariano and Llorente continued their recoveries. (Video)


Kiko Casilla has left us, signing a 4 1/2 year deal with Leeds United.

The Official Announcement:

Real Madrid C. F. and Leeds United FC have reached a deal for the transfer of Kiko Casilla. The club would like to thank Kiko for his years of dedication and professionalism, as well as his exemplary behaviour throughout his time in the youth academy, which he joined in 2000 before working his way into the first team.

Thank you and best of luck, Kiko! (And now I’m going to be singing “Leeds United” by Amanda Palmer for the rest of the day).

Happy Birthday And Congratulations!

Nacho turns 29 tomorrow! Hard to believe isn’t it? He has something fun to look forward to this coming year – Maria is pregnant again and due in April. Alejandra and Nachito are looking forward to the new addition.

So happy birthday to Nacho and mazel tov to the whole family!

I’m not sure that I’ll catch the match on Saturday as I’m participating in the 3rd annual Women’s March on NYC with shigs, forzasusan, J9 and some other friends. Hopefully, the weather will hold. There is supposed to a big storm this weekend but it’s not supposed to start until the evening. Fingers cross. But either way, we march – the patriarchy ain’t gonna smash itself!
