Real Madrid flagsWas anyone else super nervous about this match? We lost to La Real early in the season and I was terrified of similar results. You know how I get… Anything but a win is unacceptable!

Cena Pirata II

31 Dec

B6GpQFDIcAAB_OMThe luscious and always missed Esteban Granero held his second annual Cena Pirata dinner in San Sebastian  on December 29. 20 children from shelters in the province of Gipuzkoa were invited to attend. Last year’s event was a big hit and this year appears to be just as successful. Continue reading

Match Recap: La Liga – Real Sociedad v Real Madrid

4 Sep

AnoetaDo you know what I love? I love the start of the regular season. Do you know what I love more? Starting the season with a home win, which is exactly what Los Blancos gave us because they love us like we love them. Like The Ramos loves El Niño. Like Stevie loves Xabi (*sigh*). Like Lozil loves Zlatan.

Oh, right… That was LAST week against Cordoba. That was the match I wrote a recap for TWICE then forgot to send to Lozil. FAIL. Continue reading

First Training Of The Week & A Visit From The Eternal Captain

27 Aug

Satellite (11)If the rumors of Xabi leaving for Bayern Munich are true, I’m going to go into a mourning period beyond that of when Mesut took off for Arsenal and I was nearly inconsolable for a month. Xabi, listen, I’m fulfilling a life long dream of seeing Kate Bush live next week. DO. NOT. HARSH. MY. ETHEREAL. KATE. MELLOW. Continue reading

Would that picking one's team was as easy as picking one's shoes

Would that picking one’s team was as easy as picking one’s shoes, eh?

So where will El Pirata end up this coming season? On June 30th,  Real Sociedad posted an official notice thanking three players whose contracts had ended: Esteban, Jose Angel & Javi Ros.  El Pirata’s loan was officially up, so it’s back to QPR now. Or is it? Continue reading

Happy Birthday El Pirata!

2 Jul

1346425310_extras_albumes_0Our gorgeous, glorious hipster pirate turns 27 today. The big question is will he stay at Real Sociedad or return to QPR? I really hope that he stays in San Sebastian. It really seems to suit him there. As ever, there are conflicting reports (but I’m side eyeing that QPR report).  Feliz cumpleaños, Esteban! We miss you. (Even though this is an old picture, I know you’re still too thin. GO EAT SOME CAKE!)
