Diego Godin Runs Down the Pitch Scores Pearler Against Valladolid…(Video)

Uruguayan center-half Diego Godin scored a lovely goal for Atletico Madrid last weekend as he ran the length of the pitch and stuck one in the back of the net. Falcao may get the credit for most of the attacking play, but it seems the talent runs deeper than that at Atletcio. I’d look forward to seeing this fellah score a few more like this during season.

Real Madrid Bus Struggles Continue as Meter Maid Tickets Team Coach Outside Bernebeu…(Video)

Real Madrid haven’t had the best of luck of with buses ever since Sergio Ramos dropped the Copa del Ray off the top of one and it was unceremoniously crushed beneath it. In fact, one might even wonder if they had been cursed by the man who had to hammer the bloody thing back into to something resembling a trophy. At any rate, prior to each match the driver of the Madrid team bus parks it illegally on the street, near the players entrance, so they can leave quickly without too much fuss. Now as some of us who have been to Spain know, the traffic laws are very liberally interpreted, and for my part I got out of a 50 Euro ticket in Sevilla with a kind word and a sandwich. However this particular copper was incorruptible and did her part to pay down the national debt.

Funny enough…seems the same thing happened on their American tour last year…Maybe she’s a Barcelona fan, but I’m sure the bus will be parked their next week, and maybe she’ll be waiting.

Adidas Real Madrid Home Jersey - 2012:13

Adidas Real Madrid Home Jersey Review – 2012/13

Real Madrid are coming off a successful season where they were able to claim the La Liga title in Jose Mourinho’s second season as manager. Fans in Madrid are hoping that they have finally reversed roles with rival Barcelona and can now start collecting trophies again. The one trophy that Real Madrid are hoping to claim next season is the Champions League trophy, and they will be chasing that dream while wearing some great looking new jerseys.

Style

Even though the accent colors change from year, the predominant home color for Real Madrid is white, and this remains the same with the new Adidas Real Madrid home jersey . The all-white design is sleek and looks great. The gold accent on last year’s jersey looked alright, but gold is never my favorite color to see on a jersey. Luckily, this jersey has gone away from gold and instead opted for navy blue for the three stripes down the sleeves and the around the collar and sleeve cuffs. Adidas also have a thin, light blue trim around the collar and sleeve cuffs that looks great. To give added authenticity, the Real Madrid badge is stitched on the left chest with the Adidas logo stitched on the right chest and Bwin pressed on the center of the jersey. One last detail that looks great is the badge on the left sleeve. To mark 110 years as a club, Adidas has put a nice badge on the arm marking 1902-2012 that looks really nice.

Feel

This jersey, like all Adidas jerseys, is extremely comfortable and soft. It is made of 100 percent polyester and features climacool technology. This will help keep you cool and comfortable while you are supporting Madrid. In order to allow your body to breathe, Adidas has put mesh under the arms to allow air movement. This jersey fits true to size and the collar is a V-neck instead of a collar, so you don’t have a irritating collar to worry about.

Overall

If you are a fan of Real Madrid, you should head over to SoccerPro.com today and grab one of these in preparation for the new season. It looks great, is extremely comfortable, and helps commemorate 110 years of Real Madrid being a club. Now that they are back to winning trophies, hopefully they will be able to be crowned champions of Europe once again while wearing these sleek jerseys.
