I think we’re in trouble…

October 21, 2010

This is how Iker showed up to receive the award for being Madrid’s “most healthy” player last season, following a vote by Madrid fans.  I can’t even begin to imagine what the rest of the outfit (i.e. the shoes) look like.  The matching of non-matching (or even complementary) neutral colors is not new for our Iker though.  Words are failing me at the moment.

This means that things aren’t looking too good for tomorrow’s Príncipe de Asturias awards in the fashion stakes.  Someone send Xabi over to Iker’s closet RIGHT NOW!

Meanwhile, the fichajes, including José Mourinho, all received their Sanitas cards.  Mou didn’t look too happy though.

Mesut Özil had the opportunity to sort of repeat his “C” gesture from the last game (which Mateos and Khedira did) in holding the card for display, but chose to array his hand in another way.

In other Real Madrid web site news: four of the 33 formerly trapped Chilean miners arrived at the Bernabéu for a visit!

And the adorable boys we sent to the Spanish U-19 team posed with a Real Madrid jersey.

In other general news: Rubén de la Red said today that he’s studying whether to accept an offer from Real Madrid to form part of José Mourinho’s coaching staff.  During a presentation of a study made by the Spanish Cardiological Society in Valencia, Rubén said that “I’ve spent 10 years in Real Madrid and I’d like to continue there.”  He wouldn’t say more, preferring to wait until matters are concluded to speak about it.

    Oh, no, Iker. Sweetie. No. (Said in the voice of Angela from “Bones.”)

    This outfit is absolutely atrocious – worse than his plaids and random Eurotrash t-shirts and rolled up jeans… just because there’s two plain colors does NOT mean they go together!

    I really think Mou should make them all attend remedial fashion classes, taught by Xabi. (Álvaro and maybe Sergio Canales can do a workshop on looking good while casual…)

    Speaking of TSO, his face in that last shot is INCREDIBLE. The most perfect encapsulation of “unimpressed” that I’ve ever seen!

    At this point, I think Iker should be allowed to pick up the award in his kit. He just doesn’t look comfortable in anything else. Failing that, naked works too.

    O my God. Words fail me. How can anyone be this bad at dressing themselves?!! He’s a grown man for crying out aloud!!! And his hair… no Iker, comb overs aren’t cool!!

    Yes, you’re amazing and I love you to bits; but if you can’t dress yourself, just stick to a simple suit. You’ll just kill it. Or hire a stylist for the love of God!

    As for the hair, take inspiration from Zizou and just shave the damm thing off if you’re loosing it already. Flattening it down with gel/water/spit isn’t a good look on you!

      PS: What’s a Sanitas card? I googled it, and I can’t tell if it’s a government heath card or a private insurance card. Jus curious here.

      Is it just me or does it seem like he’s losing it pretty fast (the hair I mean)? It wasn’t this bad during the world cup was it? And that was only a couple of months ago!

      As for the clothes… Yeah, I’m not really someone who understands fashion, but even I know that combination doesn’t work. LOL I love it so much more when he’s in his sports wear. : )

    LOL! Mou Mou Mou..He looks like a grown man who’s being forced to wear a silly party hat by his own Mother.
    Now, you mentioned what Ozil’s doing with his hand..but what in the world is Peter Lion doing with his?!

      The one creeping downwards, or the one that looks like he’s trying to sell jewellery on QVC? Because his whole stance is just bizarre!

      HAH. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I think I’ll have to break from popular opinion on this one. Not only do I not hate what Iker is wearing, I actually like it. It’s got that New England WASP thing going on. He wears a buttondown well. His hair is goofy though.

    Oh no Iker! Just don’t dress yourself anymore its too painful. I really would like to understand why Carbonero doesn’t do something about this already, they have been going out for a while now. I am sure her taste in clothes ( not shoes) is MUCH better than Iker’s. I guess because she is the lucky person who gets to see him without clothes…..

    I tried my best not to comment on it but will someone stop him from the green disaster that is his champions league kit. What next? The only thing left is a green armband and green face paint!

    To be honest, I’m more about his hairline than his fashion sence (or lack thereof) at the moment…

    Mou, cheer up babe. ; )

    Xabi needs to give posing lessons as well as fashion classes!!! Soooooo awkward!!

    off topic, but have you all vote for “El Guapo del 2010” or “the most handsome (player or trainer) of 2010.” held by Don Balon?

    i’m sad that Iker isn’t on the list because he had won last year. 😥

    Now, i’m so confused who am i gonna vote for?? But two things are clear he must be a Spanish and from RM!! 🙂

      LOL why is Mou included in the list?! I was pretty darn close to voting for Gourcuff, but fortunately, I know where my loyalty lies 😉 Ramos baby!! Wow, I’m shocked Xabi’s in the lead so far, I expected Pique to surpass all with the sheer number of fangirls he has out there. I’m very proud though!

      • October 22, 2010 10:02

        Of course i’ll be happy if Pique won, he’s gorgeous (his eyes!!! his lips!!) and he’s one of Roja boys.. But i prefer a RM player to win it this year.. So, for anyone haven’t vote yet, please vote for Xabi, or Sergio, or our baby Canales, or even Cris.. 😀

    • October 23, 2010 13:26

      It’s not fair that Iker isn’t on the list. Just because he won it last year doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be able to defend his title as el mas guapo del mundo.

      Regarding his hairline / clothes, I just concentrate on the face.

    iker, you look so…….. grey, i mean if you’re gona dress funny might as well do it in bright colours which would atleast make us laugh….

    I am not “patience” in waiting to see what Iker would wear tonight. Actually, with Xabi not there, I am afraid about everyone there. LOL

    when it comes to questionnaire, my computer shows me only half of the list (I see no Xabi, so it must be broken!). Maybe for good, as I would have a dilemma about who to vote for. Xabi is perfect, not disputable, Sergio’s hot and cute and I cannot deny that PiqueBarcaBoy is just gorgeous, there are clearly too many options! ;-)))
