Juanin has been brilliant last two games, so he has a chance to make the squad if he continues to shine.

he has been doing well lately and I’m very happy for him, but again, I think it goes beyond that. VDB’s never been too enthusiastic about him for one reason or another, and has always favored other england-based spaniards over him. here’s hoping though, it’d be fantastic if he could keep it up and finish the season with a bang (someone has to, anyway).

I agree about atleti. Apart from being Nando's home, they have that system that suits classic forwards well (Liverpool is similar). But i'm not sure they have the resources to buy Nando =(

I agree, atleti’s style would suit him perfectly. as for the resources, negotiations would get tricky I imagine but if both parties are willing to sell or there are other players involved in the deal (see: costa, but recently I read he’s also owned by a third party? mess), they might get somewhere.

I wonder if his gym business will be a factor in his transfer. They’re based in Madrid and Fernando will surely settle there eventually (after he retires at the latest) so I can’t imagine him going to somewhere like Italy, a new culture/language

that possibility hadn’t even crossed my mind omg, but I guess it could definitely play a part, he seems to be taking the whole thing very seriously and as far as I know, has plans of opening more sport centers in different parts of spain. I’ve always had a hard time picturing him in italy anyway (football/culture-wise) so fingers crossed.

What do you think about Juan Mata's chances to go to World Cup?

I don’t see it happening, sadly. while his situation isn’t as bad as fernando’s, it’s not that great either, and he’s never been one of del bosque’s favorites, nowhere near close to it really. and he’s been left out the last what, 4 or 5 call ups now? juanin would have to start working some miracles real soon for VDB to even contemplate him imo.

What Simeone says isn’t that surprising tbh. I’m just wishing their close contact will result in something more. It’s up to Atleti and Chelsea agreeing on financial issues at this point. Surely Fernando would choose Atleti over bloody Inter

fernando should choose atleti over anything tbh. I refuse to see any other scenario coming true. mte, simeone’s quote isn’t surprising or revealing in any way (though still lovely bc awh “kid” and texting), but it’s pm impossible not to wish it evolves into something concrete.


I was gonna freak about this in your inbox too, your anon beat me to it

I just-

idk how I’m supposed to feel anymore. should I be hopeful about the future? getting too optimistic has always resulted in disappointment so idts. but simeone sounded so sincere and genuine omg :c

Liverpool fans in the Torres tag during the game. Their obsession with punishing him (for what?) - as is the media's - is beyond disturbing

blockblockblock. I haven’t seen awful lfc-related posts in his tag in ages (except for the odd one here and there, but it’s not very common) and I intent to keep it that way. life’s much more enjoyable when you block indiscriminately, I promise you.
