Training Bras, FutVolley, Keepy Uppy & Other Tales From Marrakech

18 Dec
Jese, excuse me, *Jey M* :ahem: shows off his training bra

Jese, excuse me, *Jey M* (ahem) shows off his training bra.

I’ve got a bit to catch up on. Getting home after 10 PM from work last night didn’t lend itself to posting. It did however feature ordering take out and falling asleep while eating said take out. It was one of those days. Continue reading

Mou Presser/Call Up For Betis/Benz & Cris Are Back

9 Mar

Mou had a really good presser today. The RM website had excerpts but I’m really interested to read a full translation because there were some things that I saw elsewhere that didn’t show up in this. Perhaps Unamadridista will have a full run down tomorrow. Continue reading

Ouch And Hooray!

22 May

That picture kinda says it all, doesn’t it? Ronaldo triumphs and Almeria is deader than a doornail. The “ouch” is for both me and Almeria. I threw out my back this morning and I’m in quite a bit of pain (as I imagine the relegated Almeria is tonight. My condolences). I’m just trying to stay resting quietly until I go to my acupuncturist tomorrow morning.  I hobbled on down to the pub to watch our boys play the last match of the season and Crissy break the La Liga scoring record. I wasn’t disappointed!

Something We Can Be Proud Of

18 May

In a week that has brought some unhappy moments from/for our team, we can at least be proud of this. Today we played a match vs. Selección de Murcia to benefit the people affected by the Lorca earthquake.

Hot Damn!

15 May

Crispy, you beast of a man! Mazel tov on tying the records set by Telmo Zarra and Hugo Sanchez: 38 goals in one season in La Liga.  And there’s still one game left!

What A Day For Cris!

8 May

Cris takes his lucky jump as he enters the pitch. Yep, that worked!

Ah, this will be a quickie. I’m sleepy, I’m watching Saturday Night Live and I have a busy day of school work ahead of me tomorrow. What a match and what a spanking for Sevilla. I was truly surprised at the final score. I expected a more balanced game.

Very, Very Interesting…

16 Apr

Debating the merits of which hair gel to use in the game today

So…Marca is reporting the starting line up as follows and I find it very, very interesting – to say the least:

Goalkeeper: Iker

Defenders: Sergio Ramos, Albiol, Carvalho, Marcelo

Midfield: Pepe, Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira

Attackers: Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Angel Di Maria.

So he’s going with a 4-3-3 and leaving Ozil out of it?  Hmmmm, 3 central defenders and CripsyKarim and Fideo up front. What do you guys think about that? Puyi is back for Barca today as well (Bojan and Abidal are still out).  I’ll be interested to see how this works. In Mou We Trust!

Some other little bits…

Updated: How Crissy Got His Groove Back…

3 Mar

Step off, Malaga! Crispy’s back!

Well, so much for Crissy’s goal “drought” eh?  Real Madrid spanked Malaga for a final score of 7-0. I actually felt bad for Malaga and Pelligrini. It must have been humiliating.  But seriously, they just didn’t play well. Holes all over the defense and they were outclassed at every turn. And we had a lot to prove after Saturday’s tie vs. Deportivo. It was a massacre…

More on the Lyon game…

23 Feb

I found a few more pictures from the Lyon game that tickled my fancy…

I mean, SERIOUSLY, Real Madrid? You thought this was an AWESOME shot to grace your front page this morning?! Mesut looks like the Prince of the Undead about to suck away Karim’s lifeblood! OH WAIT A MINUTE! I’ve figured it out! This is another example of your attempts to position Ozil for the tween market! Yesterday, you were giving him the full on Bieber powder treatment and today, you’re getting all Twilight on his ass! Smart marketing. Color me impressed. But wait! Does that mean that… Continue reading
