The Baby Interviewed By FIFA

14 Oct

2194919_FULL-LNDIt’s hard not to be completely charmed by this interview that Varane did with FIFA.com, so why even try? This kid is so down to earth and has his head screwed on straight. I just love him. Continue reading

“Special Ones, GO!”

29 Aug

mouMeant to post this yesterday, but Mou is getting his own Portuguese animated kids show! I read about this being developed awhile ago, but now there is a clip available. Can you imagine rolling out of bed on Saturday morning, dragging your hungover arse to the couch with a bowl of Wheaties and turning on the TV and seeing Mou? Actually, I’m kinda used to doing that because my TV viewing on Saturdays and Sunday is EPL or La Liga, but you know what I mean – animated Mou! The trailer for his new show Mourinho and The Special Ones is after the jump. Continue reading

da42000aebf911e283d722000a1f99fc_7Well now that its heading for 1 AM and I’m in an absolutely foul mood, I’m going to make this a quick post since I have to be up for work in a few hours. This post deals with non-Real players. David Luiz and his goofiness always seem to cheer me up. He’s adorable.  Continue reading

Wednesday Night Bits & Bobs

10 Jul

That awkward moment when you meet the guy you named your dog after.

An eagle-eyed cule (Photo by @barzaboy) spotted Messi & Cesc chatting with Isco in Ibiza and thankfully, snapped a picture. Ha!  I can see it now: Continue reading

Mid-day Update

10 Jul

BO02-MjCQAEGGGwOkay, it’s only mid-day because I never seem to make it to bed until the wee hours. Here’s a couple of things and more later.

Calleti & Marta were snapped in Napoli where he underwent a physical today. I’m sure the pictures of his contract signing, etc. will be out soon. (Via @NapoliSphera) Continue reading

The End….for now

4 Jun


I’ve changed my mind. I take it back. I don’t want this season to be over & done, I’m just not ready. I thought I had made my peace with the fact that Mou would no longer be with us next season, along with a number of our players, but…..come the final match, all my acceptance went right out the window. Seeing Mou in the tunnel, seeing the boys chat in the tunnel, waiting for the beginning of the end, it just did me in and then Pipa goes and drops a bomb the size of his ass, saying he wants to leave?? My life officially became a Cymbalta commercial. No joke. My iTunes library certainly wasn’t helping the matter either, putting together the saddest shuffles known to man. Talk about Ode to Depression. I know at this point, there’s nothing we can do but try and figure out how to deal….it’s not going to be easy, but hopefully launching into NT mode will help. And cake. And lots of ice cream. And lots of sobbing into your ice cream. WAHHHH!

It’s Official: Mou Appointed Chelsea’s New Coach

3 Jun

0,,10268~11984845,00In a move surprising only someone who has been living on a desert island with no contact with the outside world (and even that’s debatable), Mou was officially appointed Chelsea’s coach today. He took Silvino Louro, Rui Faria and Jose Morais with him. Wonder if that means that Karanka will stay?! Continue reading

UPDATED: The Beginning Of The End

31 May

Entrenamiento_Real_Madrid (9) I have The Doors’ ‘The End’ rolling through my brain right now…

“This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end

I’ll never look into your eyes…again

Well, at least that part is pertinent, before it turns into a acid fueled hippie freak out, but you know what I mean.

The end of The Era of Mou is upon us. He helmed his last training session today with his staff. Oh, how I will miss them all. Maybe some will stay? Ever faithful Rui is going with Mou. Rumor is that Karanka wants to go with him, but he is contracted to Real Madrid. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.  Continue reading

The Last Away Match of The Season

29 May

Real Sociedad de Futbol v Real Madrid CF - La Liga

Bum, bum, bum, it’s all about the bum and when that bum scores, it’s even better. Yep, it was Pipa that led the scoring against Sociedad, way to go! In the end, we didn’t get the win, but we did see a lot of goals. The home team equaled us, 3 for 3, with a late winner from Xabi Prieto (damn him!) and we ended our last away match of the season with a draw.
