Pipita,we will wait for you…

When one of our players shine and give that extra punch to win us those three points, then the crowd of the Bernabeu rises to break their hands in applause for a performance worthy of our institution. Against Getafe, Benzema continued his great start of the season with a goal and a sensational performance that justifies why we paid an arm and leg for the young French forward. The Bernabeu has fallen for Karim and rightly so. This player is different and has earned himself a spot in the starting eleven. Certainly, the boy is untouchable.

However, despite Karim having complete command of the spotlight against Getafe, for me the true moment came with the entrance of Pipita. Since his arrival to the white house, Pipita has found himself swimming against the currents, but through his hard work and dedication he has always prevailed. He has seen dark days with each management, but when the team has really needed of a killer in the box, they have found the solution in Pipita. The questioning and criticism has only fueled Pipita to prove how wrong all of them have been. He refuses to be relegated to the bench and is determined to earn back what was once his. Through a lovely backheel from Kaka (another player who is looking to find his best form), Pipita found the path to getting his confidence back. It all starts with a goal, and from there Pipita will continue to push forward. And this Madridista along with many others will continue to cheer for our lad and wait for him to reach his top form and be that player that delighted us each and every weekend. We need him as he brings to the table more than just goals. He brings heart and perseverance, and it is these traits that will assist him in challenging Benz for his spot. A task that will be more than difficult seeing how well Benzema is doing. At the end of the day, this will surely be a wonderful predicament for Mou and Madrid. With the high hopes we have for this season, we will need of both players.



Mi corazon was wrong…

Unfortunately for me  and the rest of el madridismo our hearts fooled us into believing that maybe we had a wee bit of chance in winning La Liga. Pero nada de nada… miracles simply just do not exist.  

I know that in terms of records for the league we were outstanding. Ninety six points, 102 goals scored, and a spectacular number of victories is quite a feat! Nonetheless, no one hardly remembers second place and neither can we physically put those records broken into our trophy case, so in all it tends to feel as useless. Bueno ya nada se puede hacer. Especially considering the fact that most likely this so-called project is about to be dismantled by Tito Floren, but more on that tomorrow.

For now  I dwell and think of what could have been, and miserably grieve that la diosa cibeles must sleep alone and cold without her captain and Real Madrid scarf to protect her.

Realist vs. the dreamer

Let’s be realistic for a moment and set aside our team colors, Barca are pretty much hours away from winning their second league title in a row. For them to lose a single point in their turf seems almost crazy and especially considering who their opponent is. Our hopes are in the hands of Clemente and his Malaga to pull off the biggest upset in years and well I simply don’t trust that old fart’s slimy hands in giving us a helping hand. No senor! Unless Barcelona wake up on the wrong side of the bed or Messi gets a bad case of diarrhea minutes prior to the match, I can’t see this Barcelona slipping up. The truth hurts but it seems like it will be another year in blank.

However, forgetting about being a realist and simply thinking with my heart I have to hold on to that miracle that exist. It’s bleak but my corazoncito continues to push for me to believe and hold on with dear life for that miracle. One of the phrases that I detest the most in this sport is that of “in football anything is possible!”, now suddenly becomes my slogan. Sure its almost impossible to win the league, but I’ve seen crazier shit go down before, so why lose faith now? They say it ain’t over until the fat lady sings and until I hear her howl the words to ‘el Cant del Barca’, I won’t be ready to close the chapter to this passionate season of La Liga.


Adios al 14

Although the rumour of Guti’s departure to Galatasaray has not been confirmed, his clapping and waving to the Bernabeu crowd after the 5-1 trouncing of Bilbao seemed like a final farewell to the madridismo.

Hasta siempre, Guti! Esta siempre sera tu casa…
