It’s Official: Bye Bye Peter Lion

31 Aug

From RealMadrid.com:

Real Madrid C. F. and Getafe C. F. have reached an agreement by which Pedro Leon will be loaned out to the latter club. Getafe C. F. reserve the right to purchase the player at the end of the present season.

Thanks to watishista! Mari who broke the news via the comments section this morning (I’m so glad some of you wake up way earlier than I do!). I haven’t had time to do any write ups since I’ve been in meetings all day.

Transfer Deadline Ends Tomorrow Night

30 Aug

So, the big day is finally upon us – the transfer deadline is tomorrow at midnight. I can’t wait until it’s over. However, we’ve got a few players whose fates are still up in the air.  It’s rumored that Gago is going to be off to Roma and Peter Lion back to Getafe.  And what of Lass? I’ve heard possibly Arsenal. Drenthe is rumored to be possibly heading to Galatasaray.  Kaka doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, but it may come right down to the wire. Do you think there will be any last minute surprises and we’ll pick up a striker? Our bench is so damn deep as it is. I’m just looking forward to waking up to La Roja/Sernando pictures tomorrow. Perhaps that can take my mind off the last minute transfer deadline craziness.

Squad List for Zaragoza/ Mou Interview

27 Aug

The team practiced today behind closed doors and Mou followed up with an interview. He discussed Sahin’s new injury (!) and the situation with Lass, Drenthe, Gago and Pedro Leon. More on that shortly – here’s the squad list for the match.

The Daily Drool: Pedro Leon

23 Jul

Since I’ll be seeing Real Madrid play today (whooooo!), I thought it would be nice to feature one of our players. Now granted, poor Peter Lion certainly didn’t get much attention when he was on our squad (only 6 appearances this past season), which was a shame. He saved our ass against AC Milan in the Champions League on his only official goal for Los Blancos (pre-season doesn’t count).  I don’t know what he did or how he pissed Mou off (aside from the punch up with Gago) but his future is obviously going to happen elsewhere. He’s a talented kid and I hope wherever he ends up that he gets some playing time. He played for the Spanish U-21 team from 2007-2009. Cool fact: his brother Luis, who races bicycles for UCI ProTeam Rabobank, recently won the Spanish National Time Trial Championships and Stage 9 of the 2011 Tour de France.  They share the same birthday – November 24.

Something We Can Be Proud Of

18 May

In a week that has brought some unhappy moments from/for our team, we can at least be proud of this. Today we played a match vs. Selección de Murcia to benefit the people affected by the Lorca earthquake.

Real Madrid Plays Charity Match To Benefit Murcia & Lorca

15 May

Murcia native Pedro Leon

From Realmadrid.com / Translation by Michael J. O’Donnell

Real Madrid will face a team of players from Murcia captained by Jose Antonio Camacho on 18 May at Nueva Condomina Stadium (20:00 CET) in order to gather proceeds for those affected by the Lorca earthquake.

The Culture and Tourism Council of the Autonomous Government of Murcia has accepted Real Madrid CF’s proposal, by which the club put itself at the disposal of the regional government to help in any way it could.

Before the game kicks-off, Real Madrid players will visit areas affected by the earthquake to get to know the damage first-hand.

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
