La Bestia negra calls for friendly ;)

Bayern Munich will face Real Madrid in a preseason friendly on Aug. 13 honoring Franz Beckenbauer after he stepped down as the German club’s president. The game will offer Louis van Gaal’s team a rematch against Jose Mourinho, the incoming Madrid coach, whose Inter Milan side beat Bayern in the Champions League final. Uli Hoeness replaced Beckenbauer as president of the Bavarian club last season.
Beckenbauer has become the honorary president of Germany’s most consistently successful club.

I hope this hasn't been posted before but this community is FAST. Anyway, the match will take place at 9 pm. I'm not sure if there's a screening on the net. The germans can watch it probably on sky. Or maybe in the public channels i haven't gotten correct information yet.

Hey cules, when is that cup game? nevermind I can see it's on the 14th

So much for being single.


The couple met at the Plaza Serrano pub, and haven't been apart since.

The player and the actress, Soledad Fandiño, would be living a hidden romance. They were seen together at Playa del Carmen, México, spot they would've chosen to avoid the local press. Friends and family around them didn't know either the location that the couple had picked.

Soledad was recently quoted saying: "He is an excellent guy, laid back and very fun. I'm not going to say that right now we're boyfriend and girlfriend or that we're in a serious relationship.", she told a local magazine. "He has an excellent body, he's very fit. And he's a very fun guy." She also cleared up: "I could fall in love with a football player or a plumber."

Márquez expected to start against Chicago

Mexico captain "looks sharp" in workouts with RBNY

New Red Bulls signings Rafa Márquez and Thierry Henry practiced with the team on Thursday, working on fitness and resistance training ahead of the club’s looming showdown with the Chicago Fire on Sunday at Toyota Park.

Head coach Hans Backe said he is pleased with the fitness level of Márquez, adding that the prized Mexican international "has only really been off for three-and-a-half weeks” since leading El Tri at the World in South Africa.

Márquez is expected to be in the starting lineup in the midfield on Sunday against Chicago, said Backe adding that New York's newest designated player "looks sharp."

Absent from Thursday’s practice were Jeremy Hall and Luke Sassano. Hall will be out at least this week but could be available for the Aug. 14 game against Los Angeles after suffering a quadriceps injury. Sassano was scheduled for surgery Thursday on his ankle and will be out for the season.

Backe said he is pleased with the team’s injury status and was happy to see Kevin Goldthwaite on the field for his third training session with the team. While Backe doesn’t think that Goldthwaite will be available for about six months, he thought it was a good sign that the defender is back and participating in training.
Backe confirmed that with the move of Sassano to the season-ending injury list, no roster moves or shakeups need to be made with the addition of Márquez to the roster.

I am starting to see more and more the hotness that is Forlan...

World Cup star Diego Forlan attracts fans in Calcutta

Uruguayan football star Diego Forlan, who was named best player in the 2010 World Cup, has attracted huge crowds in the Indian city of Calcutta.

The 31-year-old, who scored five goals in the tournament in South Africa, is taking part in a football talent hunt.

Many of the participants come from underprivileged backgrounds.

"I've had the opportunity to see them playing, and I'm surprised how organised the young players are. You can see real talent," Forlan said.
'Delighted and honoured'

The capital of the state of West Bengal is one of the few football-crazy cities in India, where the game often plays second-fiddle to cricket in people's affections.

The level of interest in the sport could be seen by the large number of fans who greeted Forlan on his arrival.

"I feel delighted and honoured, it's thrilling that Forlan is here among us," said one supporter.

The player said he was delighted to be in India and he expected Indian football to "grow over the next few years" with players in England, Spain and Italy.

"I hope we can see Indian players playing in great leagues in the future," he told the BBC Asian Network's Bengali show.

While in the city, the Atletico Madrid forward visited the headquarters of Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity.

Forlan is a hero in his home country and won many admirers around the world for his performances in the World Cup.

Two-time World Cup champions Uruguay reached their first semi-final in four decades in South Africa.

When asked about the 2010 World Cup, he said: "My best goal was the one I scored against Germany."

He joins a host of football stars who have visited Calcutta over the last three years including Lothar Matthaus, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Diego Maradona, Branco, Romario, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller, Mark van Bommel and Ze Roberto.

In 2008, German football team Bayern Munich became one of the first major European clubs to play in India at a Calcutta match.

"I am Cristiano Ronaldo and I love cakes!"

Ok so first off, I've been lurking this comm for what seems like forever, perfectly content with creeping and not posting or commenting. HOWEVER, today I was watching MTV and they were airing reruns of The Buried Life and I watched this one and when the whole Cristiano part came about I began loling really hard and I thought I would create an LJ account and share this.

I hope this is ok for posting and whatnot... and now I'm considering becoming an active member of this comm because I truly do adore it.

ANYWAYS now to the real post. I couln't find a decent quality stream anywhere else so the MTV site has to make do. "Cristiano" makes appearances at 5:40-7:00; 11:20; and 16:00-17:40

I hope you guys find this funny and I'm not actually crazy.


who the hell are these putas?

google translation:
Two blondes on Facebook presumed shared photos with the 'Maza' Rodriguez, Carlos Salcido, Ricardo Osorio, Jonathan dos Santos, Andres Guardado and Hector Moreno.

For the tracks that gives one of the girls in their social network profile, it appears that coexistence was somewhere in Pasadena, post-match tour of Tri in the United States to New Zealand, held on 3 March 2010 at the Rose Bowl, where the Europeans were left one more night after the duel.

You can also deduct because players are only present at that game, the only place within a FIFA date and allowing the national coach to summon all those who play in Europe.

In the photos, which reveal nothing more than a fun time of the selected after the game, first in a restaurant, and then apparently in a hotel room (beds and closets are appreciated) you can see the winners.

In the first set of photos, they are sharing a meal with the 'Maza', Moreno, Osorio and Salcido, at a long table where vessels are seen with different drinks. Other characters like Guardado and Osorio are portrayed with the same blonde.

I'm too lazy to properly translate this, google translate always brings the lulz anyways. Also Maza looks mighty fine in these pics

Suarez got a visit of a stork...

... and recieved a baby girl named Delfina!

After the PAOK game (3-3, partly thanks to Suarez) Wednesday evening he rushed to Barcelona in a private jet and arrived in time to witness the delivery of his daughter who was born on Thursday morning. Both the baby and his wife are in good health. :)

Perfect timing since Suarez has been suspended for two matches after the red card in the Johan Cruiff Shield game last Sunday. Now he has the opportunity to fully enjoy his new fatherhood for a few weeks!

Have some pictures of Suarez when he was still pregnant:

With thanks to:

this is my first post here -____- !!!!!
so please tell me if anything's wrong with it, hehe
