Holy Sh*t! Villa Takes Walk in Madrid!!!By: Cesar | May 20th, 2009
Stop the presses.
Our worst nightmare has come true.
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
But being the Offside’s Valencia CF blogger, it’s my duty.
Take a seat. Take a deep breath.
Want a cup of tea to sooth your senses?
Comfortable? Breathe in, breathe out …
There now. Ready?
So here’s the news:
David Villa took a walk in Madrid yesterday.
Obviously, this means he’s off to Real Madrid. He’s gone, my friends. Gone …
Oh, whatever will we do without our beloved ‘El Guaje’?
At least we have Curro Torres …
The Spanish press continues to deliver the hard ‘news,’ telling us that Villa was in Madrid shopping with his wife a day after their match against Atletico Madrid. The horror!
This ridiculous piece of non-news even made the front pages of Spanish rags MARCA and AS.
Honestly, can these ‘newspapers’ sink any lower?
I’m not going to go off on another ‘Cesar v. MARCA’ rant. No worries there.
This news story is kind of funny, to be honest.
The one thing that stands out about Villa’s stroll through the posh boutiques of Madrid yesterday are some of the things he said.
Villa told AS: “Next year I will be in the Champions League. There are many rumors, but I ignore them. I will decide what is best for my future. But Valencia fans should not be upset that other clubs want their players. They should be proud.”
I’m proud. But what I’d like to know is how he proposes to play in the Champions League if he’s with us.
Have you checked out the standings, Davey? We need some goals, my brother! We need your help!
Check out Four Four Two’s excellent La Liga Loca blog and what they had to say about this Villa non-news item …
“Valdano negotiates with Villa!” yells Marca. “Villa takes a walk to Madrid!” screams AS. “Over my dead body!” splutters Raúl.
Those were Wednesday’s headlines that greeted the appearance of David Villa in the streets of the Spanish capital the day before – an appearance that had him pestered and probed by stalking hacks and photographers.
The Valencia striker was seen with his wife (face blurred by AS, but not Marca) strolling hand-in-hand through the sunny streets!
The Valencia striker was seen near the Santiago Bernabeu!
The Valencia striker was in town to “buy a suit for my brother-in-law’s wedding,” explained the man himself.
‘Doesn’t matter!’ was the answer from the Madridista press desperately hoping that at least one of their Ribery, Ronaldo, Kaká, Silva, Zlatan, Villa, Wenger, Mourinho, Ancelotti stories comes true over the summer.
Only in Spain, my friends. Only in Spain.
