I'm not sure about this guys. While Magnum was a great success at the Derelicte show, he is still inexperienced at turning left. Which position should we put him in? Can he play backup at LB? :/

Real Madrid C. F. and Valencia C. F. have agreed a loan deal for the player Denis Cheryshev that will last until 30 June 2016.

After the debacle and his lack of playing time this is probs a good thing for his future.

Is anyone watching this?!
This is not what I ment when I said I wanted everything to be different this year.

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been banned from registering players between next month and the summer of 2017.

Both clubs have been punished by FIFA's disciplinary committee for breaching regulations governing the transfer of players under the age of 18.

The bans do not affect the current window, but neither club will be able to bring in new signings in the summer or next January. Atletico have announced they intend to appeal against FIFA's punishment and it is expected Real will follow suit.

According to Sky Sports' Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, both clubs are quietly confident the bans will be delayed in the same way as Barcelona managed to do. [...]


Three questions:
1. When are we gonna send Flo packing?
2. Is this a chance for our team to get some consistency going?
3. Are we going shopping now?

somehow I think we'll be seeing this pic a lot

pr machine is going into overdrive now that Zizou has taken his first day in charge. Desperate or sensible for capitalize on the world stage? My facebook was flooded with their pics and vids this morning. I have picked some to show. Do you think it is awkward that Sergio once played with Zizou?

(I made sure to use the image that didn't show Flo's face. I hope you don't mind his bald spot.)

No news yet on who will be part of his coaching staff (if he will get a new one at all) or who the new coach at Castilla is going to be. First training session as senior team coach tomorrow at 11:00 AM CET, followed by a press conference at 01:30 PM.

Edit: Former RM defender Luis Ramis will take over the Castilla post in Zizou's place.

Zidane will be the first French manager in the club's 114-year history.

the year's barely four days old, and already we've got drama and chaos at the bernabeu. so much for that new years resolution to find our chill.

has rafa been sacked? is zizou officially our new manager? hell if i know, since real madrid isn't saying anything.

post updates, rumors, theories, reactions, etc. here!
Regular Cupcake James Rodriguez has reportedly been involved in what must have been an epic chase with undercover cops going after him for speeding at 200km/h on the motorway. James allegedly did not pull over but managed to escape to Valdebebas while the cops were stopped by security but eventually let in to arrest deal with the delinquent.


P.S.: This is totally because they spent too much time together in Dubai over the holidays, right?!
In lieu of our lack of Copa participation, captain Sergio Ramos organized a Christmas dinner party for the players. Some of the babies were invited including Marcos Llorente and Martin Odegaard. It was a players-only event and none of the coaching staff were invited. This was done most likely to build team cameraderie before heading into their last two matches of 2015 so at very least we can end the year on a high note in the middle of this shambolic season.

put on your fashion police hats, folks....Collapse )

Well it seems our little kitten of war has been officially suspended from the French National Team over the blackmail allegations. Karim has tweeted that he respects the decision. He has been trying to set up some sort of mediation this week to resolve things. Valbuena does not want to chat.

What do you guys think? Does this reflect badly on the team? Should we also suspend Karim until this plays out in the legal field or do we go with innocent until proven guilty? Do you want Karim around in general given his habit of getting arrested for dodgy things?
