De Gea Drama

1 Sep

david-de-gea_3175501bIt wouldn’t be Real Madrid without some epic drama, now would it? We all watched with bated breath as the transfer window neared closing, only to find the deal with Manchester United scuppered in the most clusterfucky way possible. Let the finger pointing begin!

It’s Official: Chicharito On Loan To Real Madrid

1 Sep

Satellite (1)Well, I finally made it England yesterday after detours to Boston and back to NYC. I went directly to get roast dinner down the pub and watched that shitshow of a match.

Feel free to discuss the day’s inevitable fuckery in the comments section. I’ll update the post throughout the day with any official announcements after the jump. Continue reading

Updated: Preparing For Granada And More
