Champions League Catch Up: Man City & Ajax

7 Dec

10

The boys went into the Ajax match knowing that their spot in the last 16 was already sealed, so all that was left was to put on a show for the Bernabeu crowd and that they did with four lovely goals. I didn’t get a chance to recap the Man City match, which allowed the team to advance to the next round, so I’m compiling goals & thangs from that match & the Ajax one into one big ol’ post.

Bring on Levante!

10 Nov

Here we are at the end of another week, all game moded (moded?) out. Can you believe we’re already more than a quarter of the way through the season? Yeah, I know it doesn’t seem like much but it’s right about now that time starts to really fly. I can almost smell the trophies, all sweaty & slippery, from Sergio’s future death grip on them. Wait! Wait a minute! I’m getting a little ahead of myself, we gotta win them three points tomorrow first & finish climbing the La Liga table! I hope tomorrow’s match isn’t as tough as I’m thinking it will be, Levante is tough even with a complete & healthy squad. They’re three points behind us on the table, which is why it’s extremely important that we whoop booty tomorrow! Mou spoke to the press today and as always, he was confident in his team & gave us a look at tomorrow’s lineup.

Zaragotchya!

8 Nov

Let’s take a La Liga rewind & catch up on the Zaragoza match, since I’m just now getting around to putting it together! The match was our 6th straight home win & our newbies, Essien & Modric, both scored their first goals with the club. Look at us with big scoring matches, maintaining clean sheets, & maintaining our awesomeness. I like it, I love it, I want some more of it!

Training & Audi Time!

8 Nov

Look who made it back to training today! Coentrao! Coentrao! Shit, he can’t play us.  It ain’t no coincidence that he’s all set for training on the day that the boys are set to pick up their new Audi’s, nuh uh, we see you Fabio! Nothing like a new toy to get your spirits up, boys & their cars. I assume that the Audi day is to blame for all the serious faces at training today, too. Some little boys look on the verge of yelling “Mister, can we go now??”

Reporting for a Champion Sized Duty

5 Nov

You gotta love when you’re in the middle of a post & your computer decides to shutdown on you, once you’ve been through a crash, you always fear random shutdowns. Now that I’ve got this thang back up and running, I get to present y’all with today’s goodies, all the final preparations & happenings on this Champions League Eve. It’s also Election Day Eve, so I’ll quickly say to the US Watishistas, go VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, tomorrow! I’ll be working my precinct tomorrow, which means I’ll be home late, but I hope to have, at least, the post match comments up for you all to read & give y’all a space to dish about the match. I hope it’s a goodie, I’ll need something good to come home to after a crazy day. Ok now, let’s get to it.

Training & a Chat with Sami

4 Nov

Our boys are in Champions League mode but Mother Nature ain’t! Poor bebes had to run & train in the rain, more disappointingly they had to cover up..BOO! Even though I don’t want anyone to be catching any colds, I do not approve of covering up the pretty! Tsk, tsk, Cris that means you, he decided to go with the full on ninja look. To make up for our training thigh-less day, Sami sat down with Bwin.com  to talk about Tuesday’s match & his thoughts on the Champions League.

That’s another three points for us with yesterday’s win and we’re now in third place on the La Liga table.

Mou says the team is in good shape & the boys feel the same way.
