The Daily Drool – Epic Bromance Month – Patrice Evra & Ji-Sung Park

27 Dec

Park-Evra_1784737iThese two started as enemies playing vs. each other in the Champions League in 2005 (with Monaco & PSV respectively) but ended up best friends on and off the pitch at Manchester United. Continue reading

Pirlo In Yet Another Fabulously Absurd Scenario (With Bonus Morata)

6 Nov


The advertising powers that be seem to enjoy putting Pirlo in some wacky situations. Remember this and this? I know I certainly enjoy watching him. Heck, they’re probably all ideas from his very warped brain (read his book, you MUST read his book). Watishista mygypsyspirit sent me the link to this bit of hilarity from Juventus. It’s an ad for their sponsor Goodyear. I won’t spoil the fun but you’ve got to see Morata, Pirlo, Evra and Pereyra in action. Anyone care to translate what Pirlo says at the end? Morata is ridiculously adorable in this.

UPDATED: Sometimes, Swear Words Are The Only Option

largeSo much to say but quite frankly, some things about this whole episode leave me speechless or more accurately, unable to express myself with anything other than a steady stream of swear words. Continue reading

UPDATED Again:Before they face off: Spain & France

20 Jun

It’s always nice to start with the booty shots isn’t it? I think so. Well it’s crunch time for the last eight! Things are going to get tougher, quieter, & more serious as the tournament winds down. Spain will have a closed training tomorrow, BOO, and I don’t know how many other teams will decide to cut us off, because that is what they’re doing! Anywho, Spain & France got to doing their thang today and because the amount of both team’s photos were kind of light, you get a face off training post! Double the yums, ooh’s, aah’s, and woot woot’s.

Updated: Luis Suarez Gets 8 Match Ban/Fine

20 Dec

The FA has finally ruled on the Suarez-Evra case and it has resulted in an 8 match ban and 40,000 pound fine. Suarez and Liverpool have 14 days to appeal the case, but it’s up in the air right now as to whether the club will take that action.  Full statement from the FA here. Liverpool’s statement here. A piece from the Guardian here.

I applaud the FA for taking the situation seriously – something we haven’t always seen other associations – or  FIFA – do in the past. However, one other thing comes to mind – Patrice Evra admitted in his statement that he also insulted Suarez with derogatory terms. I’m wondering if he will also be charged? What are your thoughts on this situation? Whatever they are, I think we can all agree that racism has no place in the game.

Re: Liverpool’s statement – did they really just take the “hey, he has black friends!” route? Holy crap.

UPDATED: The original link to the LFC statement disappeared so I’ve added a new link and just in case it goes bye bye again, I’ve put the text of the statement under the jump. It’s filled with so much wrong and WTF that it’s unbelieveable. Not sure who on their PR team thought that statement was a good idea. Continue reading

While I Was Sleeping…

2 Jun

…y’all were busy! I woke up to a ton of comments. Watishista Mais kindly sent in this video of La Roja on the plane to the US. She got it from Isabella who found it on Twitter (but didn’t send it in to us. Naughty!!!! ;-)) Thanks, Mais, I actually do need to occasionally sleep (it’s rare, but…) so it’s nice to know that people are there are finding and sharing goodies with us. A watish! of the headband to you, young lady! Scandals from this video? Nando sitting with Xabi, (which to be fair, given half a chance I would sit with him too) and Sergio sitting with…Bruno? Hmmm, this lack of bromancing is seriously pissing me off. Think of the fangirls, Sernando! Other goodies that showed up…

Euro 2012 Qualifier: France vs. Luxembourg

26 Mar

Karim, looking grumpy and hot.

By all accounts, not a good or exciting game. The team is restructuring a bit with new coach Laurent Blanc and the return of Patrice Evra and Franck Ribery. It’s going to take a bit of time for everything to settle down after this summer’s national team horrorshow at the World Cup.

Pre-game, the team wore t-shirts in honor of their recuperating teammate Eric Abidal, which was a lovely gesture.
