It was a quiet day from a Real Madrid perspective, without much to write about. Everything we’ve wanted to dissect from the Valencia match -- tactics or otherwise — has already been done in podcasts and articles. Even deadline day didn’t provide us with much buzz. Mauro Icardi stirred the pot a bit on social media, but the only significant deals made today in La Liga were Iñigo Martinez (Sociedad -> Bilbao), Aymeric Laporta (Bilbao -> Man City), Marc Bartra (Dortmund -> Betis), and Roque Mesa (Swansea -> Sevilla).
Good opportunity to hop on Facebook / YouTube to do a live video and answer questions from fans. I’ve embedded the video below. Topics addressed:
- Martin Odegaard’s development at Heerenveen, and next steps
- Marcos Llorente, the birthday boy. What kind of player he can develop into?
- Questions about Icardi, Kane, and Odriozola
- Tactical issues this season
- Bale or Isco against PSG, and why?
- And a ton more
In case you also feel like reading a Q&A, I did an AMA thread over on my Twtter today.
