Moar pictures of fussballers! :D? My awesome friends are running a small Champions League fantasy league, and we all decided to do picspams of our teams. So I'm crossposting here!

You'll notice that I'm low on the Spain contingent - that's because several of the people in my league are Spain fangirls, and each player can only be owned by one person. So I just stayed away from that fray for the most part. :P But I managed to nab some ~Germans~ (really just Müncheners), including THE BEST GERMAN! My team is pretty crazily international though, coming from all kinds of national teams and clubs. Fun times! I think it's got a good chance of getting me reasonable points. I'm really excited for the whole thing to get started! :D

On to the picspam! I present, for your entertainment, my very own...

Now he has shaved his hair and I am sad. :(

Defense

Diego Contento
CLUB: Bayern München
NT: UNDECIDED
because he's a bb (Born 1990 holy shit). Has flirted with both Italy and Germany.

Midfield

BASTIAN "BAMF" SCHWEINSTEIGER
CLUB: Bayern München
NT: DEUTSCHLAND


So I just made an entire picspam dedicated to this beautiful, beautiful man at my journal. Feel free to go take a gander. For now I'll just show you a "few" pictures of him being a Bayern BAMF - I promise you this qualifies as just a few from my Basti collection...

Photobucket
Basti likes to incorporate corner flags into his celebrations. Usually he assaults them, but this time he felt like singing! :D This is after his beautiful goal to make it 4-0 against Werder in the DFB Pokal 2010 final. ♥

Photobucket
GERMANY'S MOM AND DAD. LOLIN'. ♥

Photobucket
Basti has already lifted one trophy this season! He's gonna get more under his belt, just you wait. ;)

Photobucket
...yes please.

Photobucket
AGAIN OBLIG LEDERHOSEN. <333

Photobucket
The ~full package.

Photobucket
A more recent act of heroism - a literal last gasp, 92nd minute goal to put Bayern over Wolfsburg 2-1.

Photobucket
:D



Wesley Sneijder
CLUB: Internazionale Milano
NT: Netherlands


Photobucket
Omfg this face. The little bandage just makes it.

Ji-Sung Park

NT: South Korea

From an article about all his modeling contracts. :D


Strikers

Didier "thats a f***ing disgrace" Drogba
CLUB: Chelsea
NT: Ivory Coast


I became fond of Drogba by reading the amazing blog Dirty Tackle, in which he features in the posts about "Random musings of footballers before they fall asleep...". It's absolutely fucking disgraceful hilarious and I highly recommend the whole blog if you've somehow missed it. Anyway, I am amused by him, but also impressed because he kind of ended a civil war in the Ivory Coast. So - I'm very proud to have this guy on my team. And I think he might score some goals too?

Photobucket
Fuck yeah, Drogba. Fuck yeah.


Dimitar "The Continental" Berbatov
CLUB: Manchester United
NT: Bulgaria


Berba also just makes me lol because of Dirty Tackle, with really no mitigating factors. I just read about how he played "strip football" (foosball, really) with a model for a photoshoot and then had sex with her afterward. Um. Classy. But this persona has been transformed BRILLIANTLY into a column called Dimitar Berbatov is... The Contintental. It's based on a hilarious Christopher Walken SNL skit you can find on Hulu. :D So basically, I've got Berba-baby on my team for the lolz. Uh, and the goalz.

Photobucket
I mean.... lol!

Photobucket


Photobucket
Berba + Rooney = too much gross to handle TBH. I could never be a ManUtd fan for that reason alone. :P

Photobucket
O HAI LITTLE PEA.


Ivica Olić
CLUB: Bayern München
NT: Croatia


Photobucket
Little Ivica is SO cute.

Photobucket
He gets so excited! ♥

AND WE CONCLUDE WITH THE OBLIGATORY LEDERHOSEN.

FC Callisto thanks you for your time. :D

I LOVE IT. And really, you've picked yourself a fantastic FF team with a good spread of players from different teams that all have done well in the CL in past year.

Also, I think your defense will do well. ;) I don't know why, but I find that Carvalho looks better now that he's playing for RM, maybe it's because he's cut his hair since then or maybe it's because I'm largely biased...

AND CONTENTO. I've never noticed him before as I've never exclusively watched Bayern games, but he's cute. :D Dark hair, dark eyes... and he can pull off that lederhosen quite nicely, lmao. Definitely a keeper!

Haha, I meant past *years. (since RM has been doing poorly recently in the CL...)

Contento is taaaasty! An Italian-German, hence all the darkness and angularity and mmmmm, pretty. :D He doesn't smile a whole lot but I really like him on the field and I hope he'll do well for me! ♥ (I would have gone for bb Lahm OF COURSE but another girl in the league reeeally wanted him and I was not about to get into a bidding war for a *defender*, lol.)

Hellooo Ricardo! I do approve of the shorter hair, yes!

Thank you! :D I am quite pleased with how broadly I flung my net - I think it's exciting to be invested in the success of so many teams. Eventually they'll come into conflict with each other but I'm okay with that. Should be a fun time! :D

OT, but re: Marcelo & Robinho. They definitely looked creepily alike when they both played for Real Madrid, but Marcelo > Robinho. Robinho's kind of... an ass, lol. You should read his latest interview on moving from City to AC Milan. But Marcelo is just silly, here's one of your defenders, haha:

Image (http://img529.imageshack.us/i/macarenamarcelo.gif/)

It seems Italian-German is a very, very nice combination... ;D I hope he does well too -- not only because he's on your FF team, but because he's on your favorite team. :) Awww, well obviously everyone wants Lahm! But sometimes the best defense is offense... and you have a strong offense. ;)

LOL did any of your friends pick more than... 4 players from the same team? Because going back on what you said about conflict regarding having a FF team with such a variety of players... it would be pretty amazing if someone managed to pick a FF team with a lot of players from one team and that one team ended up winning the CL. :p

Yeah that's pretty much what I've figured out, and I think it's why no one picked him in my league, haha. Awww that gif is amazing, I love my widdle defender! :D

Contento is kind of who we're relying on to make our left back position nice and solid now that the best left back in the world (LAAAAHM) has moved over to the right! Contento and Ribéry looked really good together in a couple of the early Bayern games, so I'm hoping that they'll make that into a nice productive chemistry down the right side. Er, /Bayern talk. (I'm kind of tipsy right now so apologies for rambling tendencies haha)

My league has a rule that you can only have 4 players from one team and 7 players from one national league (EPL, Bundesliga, etc). So no. :) I like that it makes everything more diverse. It would be silly to have your fantasy team's hopes rise and fall by one team's fortunes - that's not fantasy then! :) Mine doesn't really *rely* on Bayern per se, but it will benefit mightily from Bayern's success - I'm hoping for lots of goals from Olic, and lots of assists (plus goals hopefully!) from mah Bastian. <3

You know I immediately scrolled down to the JI SUUUUUUNG!!!!! :p :p :p

I have some more "WTF" pictures of him from waaaay back when I first fell in love with Team Korea (and all their ridiculous product endorsements) in 2002.



IDEK, ok? VOGUE GIRL????



I think this was from a magazine spread in 2002, when he was a wee 21-year-old newbie in the national team.



With his boyfriend, Kim Nam-Il "The Vacuum Cleaner". I SHIPPED THEM SO HARD, YO.



Ji-Sung finishing up his one month of mandatory military service. (His term was cut down from 2 years as a reward for Team Korea reaching the semifinals in WC2002)



I dunno, maybe he thought he was some sort of BAMF??

Heee, these are FABULOUS! :D He and his boyfriend are so cute ;) I'm very excited to have him on my team! \o/

LEDERHOSEN. :D :D :D Totally off topic: My grandparents are from Munich and I've got cousins who live there, so when we were little kids my grandparents bought legit dirndls for sister and I, and my little brother had lederhosen, and we wore them all the damn time cuz we're cool like that.

Oh my god, that's the most adorable thing I've ever heard. Little dirndles!!! :D
