Someone Broke Gareth, Well Suited, The Circus Visits The Circus & More

918-151-_1AM2887Thumb,8So the mothership isn’t exactly saying  who did the damage but they released this statement “The player Gareth Bale was involved in a collision with a teammate during today’s training session and received a blow to his left calf. Progress is being monitored.” So both Gareth & Cristiano (he’s suspended) will be out of the match tomorrow. It sounds like it was minor, so let’s keep our fingers crossed. Continue reading

That’s The Spirit, Olímpic de Xàtiva!

17 Dec

What an absolutely delightful thing to wake up to! Our opponents in tomorrow’s Copa Del Rey match, Segunda B side Olímpic de Xàtiva, made this adorable commercial for Vodafone. Smiling and dancing around singing “Don’t Worry Be Happy” they couldn’t be more charming. Considering that they held us to a 0-0 draw in the first leg, I’m sure they’re in a relatively decent mood. Let’s hope our “good” team shows up and it’s not our evil twin that seems to fall apart at the drop of a hat. But in the meantime, enjoy the cute boys being cute.  (H/T to 101 Great Goals)

“ONE! Singular sensation, every little step he takes…”

The team got right back to work after yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Olimpic de Xativa. Good to see that Gareth has recovered from his flu like symptoms to practice with Cris for Real Madrid’s production of A Chorus Line Tuesday’s Champion’s League match against Copenhagen. Continue reading

939-49-_HES3994Thumb,8I love the smiles on the faces of our petit croissant and bebe baguette, don’t you? Great shot of them. Training today was a good news/bad news sort of thing. Good news first. Pepe & Cristiano returned to training with the team. Sami took a knock but should be okay to play. Fabio is on the road to recovery. Continue reading
