At £60mill the price was right for Real Madrid as they signed World Cup golden child James Rodriguez! No news yet whether the grasshopper was part of the deal. And can anyone give me the definitive pronunciation of his first name? Right now am rocking the "HA-mez" and, frankly, I don't think I'll change it even if proven otherwise.
And I do not recall agreeing to either of these moves so WTF, Real?? You don't send off the babies without mama's permission! >:(

The central midfielder will join the Whites after winning the World Cup in Brazil with Germany.

Toni Kroos (Greifswald, Germany, 04-01-1990) is now a Real Madrid player. The 24-year-old central midfielder arrives at the Whites as a World Cup winner having enjoying an outstanding campaign in Brazil, where the German finished at the top of the FIFA rankings as the competition's most complete player. Kroos had an 85% pass accuracy percentage, and was the second highest cross provider (42) and covered the second most ground (82.6km).

Real Madrid are signing a winner. In addition to the World Cup, the player last season got his hands on the Bundesliga, the German Cup, the Club World Cup and the UEFA Supercup. The German contributed two goals and four assists in seven games in Brazil. His contribution in the historic 1-7 win over the host national Brazil also deserves a special mention, as he put on an exhibition in the centre of the pitch, scoring twice, laying on another and winning the man of the match award.

Welcome :D

It kills me to report this but Don Alfredo Di Stefano passed away today at 17:15 in the General Universitario Gregorio Marañón Hospital in Madrid.

I don't want to add anything much to that. We know how much he meant to us. RIP Alfredo. And thank you ♥

Sadly, Don Alfredo has been hospitalised after a heart-attack. He had to be revived by paramedics and is currently in a coma in a Madrid hospital. This is further saddened by the fact that his 88th birthday was only yesterday. This is the latest report from RM.Com, here.

Sad news. He will be in my thoughts. I will finish this with a quote from the Don. :3

I'm Argentinian by origin,
Spanish by choice,
Madrileno by tradition,
and Madridista to the core

- Alfredo Di Stefano - ♥

Are any of you guys interested in going?

UPDATE (7/17/14): Salgado, Pavón, and Fernando Sanz have been added to the lineup for Real Madrid. Ronaldinho is rumored for FC Barcelona.

Woop, so basically there have been some modly changes about the comm. Due to changes in circumstance, there have been some changing in the moderation team. and lorcampo, I think we can agree, did a fantastic job. It was a pleasure to work with them.

However, from here on I will be working with the fabulous yeats so yaaay for that :D I'm very glad to welcome her to the team. This means the Hala tumblrs and twitters are more closely linked so that can only mean good things. For reminders the Hala Madrid tumblr is here and our twitter here. SO, if you have any questions or problems or, let's be realistic, tag requirements we're your people. You haven't seen me around a lot this past season but that is because there hasn't been a need. A few things came up, got dealt with, and we carried on. This is a fabulous wee comm and I'm so proud to be apart of it but I know yeats agrees that if you need us we're here. And don't be shy to make suggestions to us to cause some fun! Friending memes are always welcome and party posts ect.

A kind reminder that Real Madrid are always caught up in every rumour ever so STAY CALM AND THINK OF IKER if you see something :)

Apart from that, are we enjoying the World Cup? Biggest upset? Biggest 'no way!' moment? Biggest disappointment?

Zinedine Zidane will manage Castilla next season. Zizou, who was Carlo Ancelotti’s first squad assistant coach this year, will start a new stage of his career at Real Madrid. Zidane will be joined by youth coach Santiago Sánchez and has already started working on future plans for the reserve team squad.

I wonder whether he'll stay on long enough to coach Enzo? Is anyone else gonna miss all the beautiful cutaways to him on the touchline/bench? the camera loves him maybe he can just show up and pose during matches

Second of all: Stop what you're doing and get your life.

NO REALLY. Get. Your. Life.Collapse )

You're welcome.
