Major Mesuty News Of The Week!  
Major Mesuty News Of The Week!

There have been two friendlies, and there will be another this week (with Mesut's national team, Germany, against Argentina). Here are some lovely pictures and gifs and a couple of Facebook updates, courtesy of our beloved andriy_7

Mesut first met up with Santos Laguna in spiritual home Las Vegas. Happily, Mourinho didn't allow him off the pitch and saw to it he was in New York to meet AC Milan!

I do want to start the spam (aside from posting Belly!pics to get you shameless hussies interested!) by strongly suggesting that community members check out the posts by suzanne410 and skywonder9 just before this one. They were able to witness Mesut playing while in the United States, and their posts have lovely candid shots of our crinkly-eared hero.

As for our spam: it should be noted that Mesut played a splendid pair of games! He started against AC Milan and was substituted on against Celtic. There are many lovely pictures of him in action, before and during the game because andriy_7 very cleverly found us a number of pictures sourced by AC Milan for the first game.

chanting of his name!


The Game Against Celtic - Pictures & Gifs

Mesut did not start the game against Celtic. The team markedly improved while he was on the pitch however, and he served up a beautiful assist to Karim Benzema.

Pre-match practice.

Getting ready!

Waiting with German-speaker Varane to come on.

Love from Sergio Ramos

And a little from Crispy Ronaldo too!

Back in his Nikes.

The Goal

Mesut, as can be seen in andriy_7's lovely gif-artistry, made a pass over a third of the pitch to get the ball to Benzema.


Facebook Updates & Return To Madrid

Sami has a shadow...as usual...

Mesut With The National Team

As Mesut's latest Facebook entry suggests, he is back with the national team. There is already a post of training pictures from enx123 but here a few extras of Mesut hanging out with the fans and adding fuel to the bromantic element of the "Goetzil" phenomenon - as Bild calls them! (And hanging out with Sami - but that goes without saying!)

Goetze looks pretty admiring to me!

They do everything together!

This post is entirely due to the efforts of andriy_7 - thank you sweetheart!

With respect to your first couple of pictures: I can't.

This is becoming increasingly common on posts in this community (this is a good thing). But is it me or does he seem ever more inclined to take his shirt off?

Mesut loves taking his shirt off.

It's one of God's gifts to the fan community tbh

1. Wait, he was waving at the crowd when taking that corner kick? LOL I thought it was some sort of signal to the team. Well, that makes it all the more adorable.

2. Seeing how Bambi has a gift of shying away in the back when the team's traveling, making it hard to spot him, I just locate Sami first (he's bigger and not so elusive), because, inevitably, Mesut will be right next to him. Works all the time XD

1. He was! They do do that "hey, I'm taking a corner kick" wave, but this was def a "I'll get your number later, baby", wave!

2, lol

I always look for Sami first as well! The other night I dreaamt that the German NT was at an Airport (where I was too), and even in my dream, I knew to look for Sami first because that would lead me to my Turkish delight! :D

Absolutely dead from these pictures. Can't wait to watch him play today!

I love his hair at the match with Argentina! And I will always repeat my wonder at how ridiculously good-looking Mats is.

I'm reading your comments as they come in and they are making me smile!
