Real Madrid Vs. LA Galaxy Line Up

2 Aug

The game kicks off in about 30 minutes. Not sure if I can stay awake that long. We had a major work technology blow up which caused me to be there late and have a mental breakdown of epic proportions. 2 glasses of wine, some Greek food and a piece of cheesecake later, I’m just getting the ability to speak back. Kinda.

So here’s the planned line ups from the Real Madrid website:

Real Madrid’s starting XI in first half: Casillas, Nacho, Albiol, Varane, Coentrão, Xabi Alonso, Lass, Kaká, Di María, Callejón, Higuaín.

Real Madrid’s starting XI in second half: Adán, Arbeloa, Pepe, Ramos, Sahin, Granero, Khedira, Özil, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Morata.

LA Galaxy’s starting XI: L.A Galaxy: Saunders; Lopes González Franklin DeLaGarza; Gaul Héctor Juninho; Robbie Keane Beckham; McAgee

Update On RM’s Vegas Match

21 Jun

According to this report, Real Madrid will be taking on Santos Laguna. Thus far, there’s no ticket price changes or anything else. World Football Challenge STILL doesn’t have anything up on their website about Juve’s cancellation or any change in opponents. WTF? However, UNLV Stadium is showing some info on the website. Seriously, WFC, get your shit together. We shouldn’t be finding this stuff out from the clubs, we should be hearing it from you. But then again, these are the same people who won’t unbundle the tickets for Chelsea/PSG and Madrid vs. Milan, so there you go. Arseholes. (That’s not to say Juve aren’t being dicks by canceling so they can rest up for the Supercoppa in China either).

I’d comment further on this but I just can’t stop laughing. You would think that the World Football challenge could find *someone* who could pronounce ANY of the names of world famous footballers/teams correctly. OMFG. Epic fail!
