Big Flow-tastic

26 Mar


Greetings from the Ancestral Land of Xabis where watishista mygypsyspirit and I have managed not to be swept out to sea in the frequent torrential rain/hail storms. The pinxtos are great, the men even better and we’ll let you know about the football tomorrow. What was NOT good is watching RM lose tonight. Seriously bummed us out. But thanks to Jese & Big Flow (with cameos from Derik & Omar), we had something to make us smile (a wee bit) again. You also REALLY need to see the gifs from the video created by watishista pinpanpam because they are epic.

And now, to bed. I’ve got a long awaited lunch date with one of the gods of Basque gastronomy tomorrow and a footy match at night.

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

26 Sep


Sorry for the quick posts lately. It’s busy times all up in Chez Lozil. I just finished watching the Bernabeu Trophy match while I was doing other work. Sheesh! I don’t like such one sided games, but it was really good to see some folks getting playing time and some of the bebes making their debuts. Anyhow, here are the pre-match training shots. In addition to all of the first team,  Pacheco, Fabinho, Derik, Alex, Mosquera, Omar, Denis and Mario Hermoso joined in. Continue reading
