It's always nice to see a canterano like Granero, (who has been in the team since he was 8 years old) wear the captain armband with the team. Granero is certainly not our best player, but his off-the-pitch attitude is always encouraging and passionate.
It's confirmed. Gago leaves the club and joins Valencia. The deal has been closed at aproximately 4M€. Both teams are still negotiating for the rights of Sergio Canales, something that would raise the amount of money to 11.5M€. In that case, Real Madrid would keep a buyout clause just like the team did with Dani Carvajal.
Raúl visited Valdebebas yesterday. Striker Álvaro Morata posted this picture on his Twitter account with the description "With my idol!".
So yeah, there has been some trolling around here recently, and while I tend to allow some measure of funny banter to continue on the site unimpeded, some of this has crossed the line. I'm writing this to remind you all (the awesome MM community) that I have your back. People can come and try to troll us and we can have some fun with that, but as soon as there are insults and hostility--basically, as soon as someone makes this not a fun place to come and hang out by insulting you, our wonderful readers, writers, and community at large--then they're going to be kicked off. No questions. If you ever feel like someone is being obnoxious, or making you feel like this isn't a place you want to come (because that's our ultimate goal), then you let me know immediately. I'll handle it. Cheers, and HALA MADRID!
MARCA has just released photos of Madrid's 2012-2013 home and away kits. What do you think? (The home is above, the away kit is here.)
Fabio Coentrao was caught red handed smoking cigarette during his birthday party. Karanka told press: "That is an internal matter of the club and it will be treated as such,"
