David Silva and his hydrotherapy

David Silva and his hydrotherapy [I wish I could see pictures of this but I'll have to settle for the article instead... for now...]


[I wonder if he's planning on driving or is there someone on the driver's seat?]

David Silva has taken a new step in his recovery for his left ankle. The man from Arguineguín began hydrotherapy treatment at the pool of Ciudad Deportiva de Paterna yesterday.

youtube gold

So lately I’ve been spending a lot of time on youtube when I should be working, and have been sucked into the addicting world of fan videos. Idek. But I’m posting some just for kicks. And also, I’m being impartial and posting ones of players I don’t care for because they are all SO DAMN ENTERTAINING.

And they’re under cuts, but still not dial-up friendly at all because of sheer quantity.

and random, but I noticed that all the videos for the Black players are hyper-intense, and all the videos for the Spanish players are set to bubblegum pop.
BEST EVER

some of your favourite german player's names translated


this photo is totally unrelated to the article but.. who cares, really? :P

We know that names like Klose, Löw, Frings and Ballack offer creative headline writers plenty to work with. We know that Schweinsteiger can be a bitch to pronounce for some non-German speakers. I know that every English article mentioning Schweinsteiger will tell you that his name translates to pig climber or pig mounter. But according to Prof. Dr. Jürgen Udolph that’s not the accurate meaning or translation of Schweinsteiger. Udolph is Germany’s only professor for Onomastics and decrypted a couple of family names of German national team players for n-tv.de.

Bastian Schweinsteiger. A Schweinsteige was actually the Old High German word for pigpen (or Schweinestall in modern German). So it’s not pig climber but Bastian Pigpenner. According to Udolph that means that his family lived in a pigpen when they got their name. Not too flattering, but as we will see with Philipp Lahm’s case, those medieval people were very pragmatic.
