    P.S. Love the profile pic, Buena!

    Well it is better then the slanted eye photo shoot so…but Xabi looks adorible.

  3. Y_N_W_A says:

    Nice to see Reina in there, he’s better than Iker, in my opinion.

    Was Nando in makeup still as well??? As for the jerserys….they’re alright, i’m still indecisive about them. Reina’s though is plain and simple!

  6. Rebecca says:

    Like the shirts, the Euro ones were better though. But I wanted to see Iker in makeup :'/

  7. Fer_Lahm says:

    aaaaaaaaah-.- they look like africans in a bad-hollywood movie¬¬ the euro ones look better(:!

  8. La WAG de Spanish Team says:

    D: D: I dont like them…they look kinda cheap…:(: The Euro ones looked SO MUCH BETTER. :(

  9. suzie says:

    I like the shirts and I find the warpaint/whiskers kinda cute.It's a shame iker,nando and sergio didn't join in, that would have been good to see.

  10. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Weird facepaint and no Iker… I’m not a fan.

  11. Berbie's Barbie says:

    I dun like the new shirts and where is Iker?????

  12. Callie says:

    I don’t like the new shirts as much as the ones from Euros but what I really want to comment on is did the paint make Villa lose his bitchface?!?!

  13. lose that girl says:

    I think they need more make-up, not less. lose that girl blog

  14. Erin says:

    ROFL! Are they just the Adidas 3-stripes on their cheeks? Whose brilliant idea was that?? Xabi, Pepe and Arbeloa always look good regardless. (Love Riera, but not hot.) Shirts look fine to me.

  15. FootballerChick43 - "Mrs.Ballack" says:

    Makes me wonder what happened to Iker…

  16. Dunzo says:

    It’s not warpaint, it’s Adidas’ three stripes.  Also explains why Iker and Torres aren’t there, they’re Reebok and Nike guys respectively.

  17. Nilenia says:

    The Uniforms look like STAR TREK UNIFORMS

  18. reggie_br says:

    i'm going for a combination of both probabilities… war paint AND kitty whiskers!!!! they look adorable or it's only me and my tired eyes??? gotta say something else: just LOVED the new jerseys!!!

  19. Me says:

    I like the old shirts better Xavi and santi are such cutties…

  20. ThunderGirl says:

    What a stupid idea for a photo shoot! I'm usually not part of the PC crowd, but I find their "warpaint" slightly offensive. I can only hope that Iker and Nando refused to be part of such inanity!

  21. Buena says:

    Thanks YNWA!!!!…… I want to know what made Villa crack a smile…. the warpaint whiskers works on some of them, like Xabi, Santi, etc. but on others, it looks a bit awkward

  22. Dani.Mrs José says:

    i like the new shirts .. is the goalie shirt actually any different ?

  23. truly_thata says:

    where's Iker?

  24. lissette13 says:

    That Fernando Llorente (left to Pepe) its one hot Dude

  25. FirstTeamCoach says:

    BWAHAHAHA, what a ridiculous look ! Dont like the shirts, but equally don't care either.

  26. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    Ugh, why are all the newer kits coming out all fug, is there a conspiracy I am not aware of? Yuck!

  27. Gina Villamelon says:

    I'm thinking Xabi looks rather good with those whiskers. Santi's just a big goof ball and his smile makes me smile too. It's infectious – even Dahveed Veeyah managed to crack a smile! The shirts look quite good, but I prefer their shirts from the Euros.

  28. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    Oooh….I like the new shirts…..I like them even better because Arby is modelling them!No idea why they have war paint/kitty whiskers on though, although it does look rather cute.

  29. Venice says:

    LOL aw bless! Xabi's all serious business about it haha!

  30. Blair says:

    It must have tacken Xabi ages to get that paint out of his ridiculous ginger beard.

  31. carly says:

    I like the shirts.

  32. Sarah says:

    Haha the warpaint is a little OTT, but I like the shirts.

  33. Cheryl says:

    picture not aproved…. no iker,no cesc……..sadly not even xabi can make up for that…

  34. HiL says:

    Heehee nice!! I liked the jerseys better the way they looked in the Euros..

  35. aristeia says:

    Ahhhh Spain. I lurrrve you. The boys look good! And Villa’s smiling. :)

  36. Becca says:

    Xabi Alonso Sorry MXA but hes gorgeouss!

  37. carly says:

    I like the shirts.

  38. Avenath says:

    Awwww, how cute is Villa?..he looks blissfully happy…whiskers and all…and just where is Torres and Iker?..tsk tsk..oh yeah, the kit…not too thrilled about them…maybe they should make it a requirement for all players to remove them at the end of every match…
