Wasn’t Expecting THAT, I Tell Ya!

23 Apr

Well, then! I was seriously expecting a tough match as Valencia is currently (well, for now) third in La Liga. The toughness? Not so much. The big news was the most emphatic return of our beloved Pipita to goal scoring form. Whooooo! Continue reading

International Friendlies Round Up: A Good Weekend For Muppet Babies, Sami & Mesut Get Released

27 Mar

Marcelo with a fan and her baby before his injury.

Aw! How adorbs does he look? He said that the baby reminded him of his son, Enzo. It wasn’t all fun and definitely no games for Marcelo this weekend. He was injured in practice on Friday, feeling pain in his back and ribs. He was supposed to start the game today, but instead he was examined on Saturday by the team doctor and sent back home to Madrid. Luckily, it was nothing serious.

Mesut ÖMFG!

6 Mar


Seriously, boo? Seriously?! You brought me to my knees today, Özil. You were an absolute and utter thing of beauty on that pitch! I adore you!  Your assists? Everyone at the pub was like “DAMN” and turned to look at me in my Özil jersey. I just nodded sagely. What could I say? You were utter perfection.  And Jorge Valdano agrees with me. He said “Ozil is going to set the standard for the next decade at Real Madrid. He is the kind of player that Madridismo loves. He even makes his opponents have fun.”

More love within…

The Daily Drool: Unai Casillas

6 Mar

Unai, you little tease!

Okay, I lied, Unai is the oldest Muppet Baby this week. He’s 21 (I believe), but damn, look how adorable he is! And he’s Iker’s brother! And he’s sucking on his finger in that picture (and he looks sooo much like Iker right then. Let’s pretend he’s not wearing what looks like a Members Only jacket, shall we?)  And…oh never mind, he’s hot and we’re featuring him. I’m sure you won’t mind a few more pictures, right?

If you can bear to look at his most hideous visage, read on….

The Daily Drool: Juan Agudelo

5 Mar


USA! USA! USA! Sorry, all. Had to get that out of my system. Colombian born Juan Agudelo (November 23, 1992 – Sagittarius in da house!) came to the US at the age of 8 and grew up in Barnegat, NJ.  He’s currently a forward for the New York Red Bulls.

More USA! USA! USA! Muppetness, ahoy…

The Daily Drool: Neymar

4 Mar

Striker Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior (born February 5, 1992) plays for Santos F.C. and the Brazilian National Team. He is one of the most sought after young players in the world. A number of European clubs have been chasing him including Real Madrid, Manchester United, Internazionale, Chelsea and Juventus. He has been compared to Pele and Robinho, no mean shakes for a kid of 19. However, he maintains that he wants to stay with Santos.

More pretty pictures and info…

The Daily Drool: Alex Fernandez

3 Mar

Alejandro “Alex” Fernández Iglesias was born October 15, 1992 in Madrid.  This Libra midfielder is the younger brother of Real Madrid Castilla center back Nacho (José Ignacio Fernández Iglesias).  Mou chose Alex as one of the five canteranos that he took to the US for the pre-season tour in 2010. I love that he is all redhaired and freckly! Do you know who I think he’s going to look like when he grows up? Former player (US National Team/Padova/MLS) and current commentator (ESPN/NBC) Alexei Lalas. Yum! Hopefully, he won’t go through Alexei’s hideous long hair and beard phase though! Yuck!

Anyhow, more on today’s Muppet Baby…

The Daily Drool: Pablo Sarabia

2 Mar

Today’s Muppet Baby is Pablo Sarabia who plays as an attacking midfielder for Real Madrid Castilla. Born in Madrid on May 11, 1992 (::clutches heart in horror::), our little Taurus made his first team debut in a Champions League game vs. Auxerre in December 2010 (the picture above is from that game). He came on in minute 72 as a sub for none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. And you know how Crispy loves a good Muppet Baby!

The Daily Drool: Alvaro Morata

1 Mar

Álvaro Borja Morata Martín was born in Madrid on October 23, 1992. (A Scorpio like me!) He makes me feel old and filthy just looking at him. This more than qualifies him for day 2 of Muppet Babies Week! Let’s learn a bit more about him, shall we?

The Daily Drool: Sergio Canales

28 Feb
Looking a tad Bieberesque there, Jailbait!

 Welcome to the start of Muppet Babies Week!  All of our Drools for the next seven days will feature hot, young baby ‘ballers, of which there are plenty. This week is guaranteed to make even the youngest among us feel a bit like dirty old ladies/men. Who better to kick it off with than our beloved Jailbait!? He just turned 20 but since his birthday was only 12 days ago, it’s close enough to teenagerdom. He’ll be the oldest of the bunch, though.

Often referred to as a “Real Madrid starlet” in the press…
