And the training goes on

Los Blancos, who are on a 17-game unbeaten streak in the league, completed today’s training session ahead of the final LaLiga Santander match against Villareal. The team are going to need every bit of motivation they have to make the win, while simultanously hoping for an Atletico Madrid Steve-like slip-up.

Ramos not fully ready yet

Marca reports that while Raphael Varane trained with the restof them on Wednesday, the Real Madrid captain trained by himself on the pitches and also indoors.

Toni not feeling too good

After contracting the C-Virus (eh? Got that one?), Kroos admits that he is feeling rather... unwell, acording to Marca. Weak to be precise. We wish Toni a speedy recovery from the virus. He probably isn’t in a big rush, given that his club season is over. Yet, every fan of his will be able to enjoy watching him dictate games in the EUROs this summer.

Ex-Madrid Midfielder Sami Khedira has announced his retirement

Oh by the way, happy (sad) anniversary

*Ahem *


And I miss you

Both at home and away

And I miss you

And I miss you

when we can’t score at games

Lost in paaain

Ohhhh Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnieeeeee! ♫


It came from the heart.
