A hat-trick of Golden Boots for Cristiano Ronaldo! The award given to Europe's maximum goal-scorer of the season. This year Cristiano shares the honour with Luis Suárez (AKA Mr. Bite-a-lot), as both players scored 31 goals for their clubs, Real Madrid and Liverpool respectively.

The first time Ronaldo won the Golden Shoe was in the 2007-08 season when he was playing for Manchester United under the watchful eye of Alex Ferguson. He ended it with 31 goals, winning his club the Champions League along the way.

His next came with Real Madrid in the 2010-11 season - his second year playing in the white shirt. The Portuguese scored 41 goals, beating the 38-goal record left by the great Zarra and Hugo Sánchez.

More pictures and quotes behind the cut! With a cameo appearance by Cristiano Jr. and a select couple of teammates.Collapse )

I'd like to encourage everyone to watch THIS video on Marca's website. It's a compilation of young!Cristiano which moved Dolores to tears during the ceremony. :-)

We have been getting a lot of shifty press recently (what else is new) so I thought I would bring some cheer. Well, to be honest it might bring mass crying but HEY. This is my go to vid for when people start badmouthing my club or Perez does something stupid or something like Raul's retirement happens. Remember who and what we are ♥

MADRID - Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema has signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2019, the European champions said on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old France international joined Real in 2009 from Olympique Lyon and has scored 72 goals in 159 appearances for the La Liga club.

"Real Madrid would like to announce the extension of Karim Benzema's contract with the club until June 30 2019, to include the next five seasons," Real said in a statement on their website.

PARIS - Paris St Germain have ended talks with Real Madrid on buying Angel Di Maria because the Argentina midfielder is too expensive, the president of the Ligue 1 champions was quoted as saying on Thursday.

PSG had discussed a bid for Di Maria, whom Spanish media have reported has a price tag of around 75 million euros ($100.33 million), with European champions Real, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi told reporters at the presentation of new signing David Luiz, according to French media.

"I negotiated with Florentino for Di Maria, but he is very expensive and we have stopped the negotiations."
Putting a player up for sale that has been involved in matches that led to us winning trophies after your flop trophy-drought Galactico era. Gee, thanks Flo... SMH

Looks like Sami found a new German, Iker vs Keylor, etc.Collapse )

This is me saying that Match Posts at the world cup are ok~ Whether our boys are involved or not. We love footie and a summer off sucks right? So, if anyone wants to put up a match post and talk about a certain match that is ok.

Just a summer warning as it were, remember rumors at our club can be ridiculous so stay calm, think of Iker, and scrutinize sources. Transfer rumours are welcome, just be careful on where the info is from. :) I'm not saying if your source is X don't post it or anything. Just, a lot of rumours will fly so be careful. :)

Also, if we DO sign someone, feel free to poke me within posts for tags :) I can struggle to keep up. Like I said, so many rumours.
From Marca:

Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi has apologised to his teammates and the club - who will fine the player according to the code of conduct - for running in front of a bull, dressed as Batman, during the Carnival celebrations in the Basque province of Azpeitia.

If pictures emerge, please post in comments. Thank you.

NB: Not April Fool's Day Post. This Happened.

I'm sorry but LOL. This is like an Onion sketch...

Our very own elf, Angel "Dobby" di Maria, has been forced to apologize by our leaden-footed club for his harmless gesture adjusting his junk as he came off yesterday - thereby turning this harmless reminder that man shares 99.9% of his DNA with monkeys into a major news story because our media department is run by idiots. No one has gifed this yet on tumblr that I've seen (is gifed even a word?) so you'll just have to believe me when I say it was pretty harmless.

And here's a screen-capture of Angel adjusting himself:

When you have an itch, scratch it.

Yeah, the crowd was booing him. But he's said he was just "making [himself] comfortable" and that should have been enough. Publicizing the apology instead of getting a private assurance has made this into an issue when ignoring it would have made it go away. Thanks to the apology, we have 1000+ stories on Google News covering it.

Well done, idiots!

Besides. Our players adjust their junk all the time. It's what they do. It's what tumblr girls gif. It's the stuff we save in a folder on our desktop innocuously marked "tax files."

And here - this was gifed and is in the RM tag today (bless the maker!). And it should be shared because you know...players adjusting junk can be funny - especially when it's three at once -

I am so fucking irritated by this non-story I could spit...Collapse )

Xabi received the medical green-light and is back training with the rest of the team after being injured for almost 5 months.
There was a full squad training today for first time this season. No official match return date yet.

What a lovely sight to wake up to today! Even though I don't think the blonde was the hairpocalypse it was made out to be, I'm so happy that his human color hair has returned. I adore that he's added a faux hawk. Because Sergio gonna Sergio. May this be the hair that scores 100 headers (even if it is more likely the hair that gets 100 cards).

Also, what with it being the start of a new season, would anybody be interested in a Tumblr/Twitter friending post?
