Welcome to the official launch of our new mid-week bonus podcasts, just for our patrons! We’re thrilled to announce our patronage has grown exponentially, and we’re forever grateful for all your support. Putting out an additional podcast in conjunction with our regular Sunday night recordings was long overdue, and something we’re happy to do to show our appreciation for all the support you give us.

If you’re a regular listener, don’t worry — you’ll still get to listen to our weekly Sunday podcasts for free. For those of you looking for extra coverage — including Champions League post-game pods, and just general mid-week analysis — then please don’t miss out, and sign up over at our Patreon page.

On this bonus, patron-only episode of the Managing Madrid Podcast, Gabe Lezra and Kiyan Sobhani discussed:

- The international break

- The criticism directed at Bale and Benzema

- Fitting in Asensio

- Ousmane Dembele's presentation

- Bale's physical / mental issues

- Zidane's scheme on offense

- Potential signings next summer

- Zidane's head / face

- And more!

Hope you enjoyed our first patron-only show -- the first of many!
