Why the beautiful game was amazing this week: Jürgen Klopp, Pokémon trainer edition

It all began with Luis Suarez scoring, conceding a penalty, and biting a Serbian (with love). Ivanovic wasn’t happy, but it was a true barbarian’s hat-trick.

Then, in a WWE “is this staged?” moment, Mike Tyson not only backed Suarez, but started following the Uruguayan on Twitter

image

After that, we imagined Luis and Mike getting matching tattoos.

image

Monday began with Robin van Persie scoring buckets of goals, like this one: 

image

Thanks to RvP’s brilliance, we were also introduced to @rvp, an engineer in India. At first he wasn’t happy about it…

image

but then he came around….

image

Oh, and Man Utd won their 20th Premier League title, but more importantly Patrice Evra somehow got has hands on a fake severed arm, and decided it would be fun to celebrate with it and mock Luis Suarez

image

On Tuesday, we had the Chaaaaaampionsssssssss League. Bayern Munich looked like Lance Armstrong on performance enforcing drugs, otherwise known as Lance Armstrong

image

Lionel Messi wasn’t 100% and as a result the goals came pouring in like Bavarian beer. Naturally, it became Müller time

image

Then Müller time got a little drunk

image

Jordi Alba wasn’t happy about it, and it wasn’t a night to remember for him either

image

Speaking of poorly timed decisions, right before the Champions League began, it was leaked that Bayern already signed Mario Götze. It sucks for Dortmund, but they kept it classy for the most part

image

So we stayed in Germany, traveling to Dortmund…

image

Real Madrid definitely weren’t going to be embarrassed. After all, they have super Cristiano

image

Aaaannnd then the Lewandowski show happened

image

image

image

image

This is pretty much what the last twenty minutes looked like for Madrid

image

Jurgen Klopp was pleased, which made us happy

image

People on Twitter were getting upset at SBNation and us because of Dortmund’s foreign names, which is pretty racist, but we turned them all into Pokémon anyway

image

The Europa League wasn’t too eventful, except David Luiz learned that Basel’s keeper is pretty awful

image

Also, Fenerbahce beat Benfica, but got way too emotional after missing a penalty

image

Oh, and Friday left us taking it all in, though we can’t forget about The Jozy Altidore experience. 30 goals this season, so for all those haters who doubted him and are now excited about Jozy…

image

And here’s Jurgen Klopp celebrating, one more time.
