in today’s training session…

December 15, 2010

… the guys looked cold but cheerful!

See, no problems in the locker room!  I just wished they expressed it in some way other than with their thumbs…   And back in training was Sami Khedira.  Meanwhile, Cristiano stayed in the gym, along with Diarra and Albiol, who had played last night in the Zidane-Ronaldo charity game.

We can always count on Marcelo and Pepe to bring some cheer/craziness, no?

And MFC was back in training with the big boys, along with his Castilla teammates Álex Fernández, Juanfran and Sarabia, and Fernando Pachecho from Juvenil A.

These two looked the coldest.  Arbeloa almost looks like an old woman like that.

At the press conference after, Lass said, “everything’s good between Iker and Cristiano.  Iker is the captain and Cristiano is one of the leaders.”

    Marcelo’s braces? There was a small shoot last game when he smiled after a foul, he was adorable. And thanks Una for bringing in these pics. You know, RM locker room was in the back of my mind the whole day. I was sad somehow…

    That picture of Pepe, Marcelo and Iker is so precious!! Iker’s just awkwardly smiling and doing the thumbs up there, haha! Their smiles are contagious. I’m grinning like an idiot here. I think I need to print out that photo, it makes me so damn happy. I’m sure it’ll cheer me up everytime I’m feeling down 🙂
    Good to see the younger boys training with them!
    You’re right, Arbeloa does look like an old lady hahahaaha. Mou almost looks like a ninja.

    I love how Sami always looks completely oblivious to the cold. Everyone is in 20 layers and he’s out there in shorts. 😉

      He’s from the wet rainy part of Germany.

      And of course, I like to think he’s somewhat hot-blooded if you know what I mean!

    hey Una, i read the news about “Real Madrid To Offer Gunners Karim Benzema Swap For Gael Clichy”. is it for real? does it confirm yet? cause i remember Karim’s agent said something about Benzema wont leave RM in January and will stay in RM instead but this news keep circling around the media.

    Does anyone heard any news about this?

    i really wish Karim to stay in Real Madrid. He maybe haven’t found his best move and consistency in RM yet but he’s a great player! he should stay with Real Madrid..
    and come on Mourinho you guys are lacking of strikers and still want to swap Benzema?! give the French boy a chance to shine! *speaking like a true Benzema fans lol*

      It’s possible that we could trade Benzema, but it wouldn’t be for a left-back. That would leave us with one striker, and Perez/Valdano/Mourinho et al have all acknowledged that we have a striking shortage. If we traded him, it would be for another striker.
