Happy Happy at Inter Land or What, Me Worry?

Happy happy joy joy

Happy happy joy joy

Before we go off to Monaco for the UEFA Super Cup, the team had time for a happy happy training session. Also, Rafa released his call up list.

I dont know what was going on (some maniacal team building exercise or something), but there are a whole bunch of pictures of grinning Inter players posted up on the club's web page today. I picked out a few of my favorites to share:

Sneijder gets funky
Are favorite Dutch boy spent the morning getting down with his bad self.

Speaking of Sneijder, he has posted this little lovely on his facebook page:

"This is an awesome time for me, I'm ready to begin a new season, I'm happy here where I am, and nobody will stop me to stay here. Holland is my home, Madrid has been a transit, Italy is my new home.I will not change my team and I put an end to all magazines rumors of transfers for this summer and this winter. Ciao."

Cool beans! Thanks so much for clarifying, Wes.

Back at La Pinetina, things were still rolling along:

Santon's back to training!
Happy day, Santon is finally back to training and boy, does he look happy. Is there hope?

Sameul's smiley face is scary
Unfortunately, Samuel's smiley face is not so successful. Oh well, maybe it is better if he just glares.

Lucio - not so creepy
Happily, Lucio can still look happy without making everyone run for cover. He is happy and he knows it!

Oh, and Rafa has released his call up list for Friday:

Portieri: Julio Cesar, Castellazzi, Orlandoni;
Difensori: Cordoba, Zanetti, Lucio, Maicon, Materazzi, Samuel, Chivu;
Centrocampisti: Stankovic, Sneijder, Muntari, Mariga, Cambiasso, Obi, Coutinho;
Attaccanti: Eto'o, Milito, Pandev, Biabiany.

No surprises there. With the inclusion of our mystery new signing (which may or may not happen), Thiago Motta, and Santon, I think we have a first team shaping up.

BTW, I will do a real preview for the super cup tomorrow after Rafa's presser. This is just a little frippery to pass the time.

Oh, and as I posted in the comments on the other thread, 13 Inter youth players have been called up to the Italy U17 and U19 squads. The future is bright!

Dont forget to enter my super fabulous contest. You only have until this Sunday to get me your entry!

FORZA INTER

Chivu is going to be sooo jealous!
Deki and Marco - get a room
