Another Ending For Xabi

18 Apr

He just loves to drive the knife in, doesn’t he?  I’ll always think of him as ours, no matter  how irrational that is. Today ultimately ended up as Xabi’s (and Philipp Lahm’s) last appearance in European competition as they are both hanging up their boots at the end of the season. That game had some very questionable decisions by the referees (in both directions) but I think, in the end, we deserved the win over the two legs.  I’m sorry to see the back of two such wonderful players, but I’m not sorry we advanced.

12 Apr

Our starting line up:

On the bench:

Kiko Casilla, James, Mateo Kovacic, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Morata, Isco and Danilo.

Just caught a glimpse of Xabi and it made me sad. Nevermind though. Let’s get out there and win this! HALA MADRID!

No Rest For Los Blancos

9 Apr

Oof! That game yesterday! I felt sorry for my poor neighbors. They must have been wondering what the hell was going on with all the shrieking coming from my flat. I’m sure they’ll get used to it, what with the matches that are coming up this month. Continue reading
