On this Patron-only episode of the Managing Madrid Podcast, Kiyan Sobhani and Gabe Lezra discuss:

- The result against Bilbao from all angles

- Standouts for Athletic

- Kepa’s saves, Zidane getting asked about him in the post-match presser, and just discussing that ‘what if’ winter transfer all-around

- Keylor’s place among the top goalkeepers on earth

- Karim Benzema’s deeper role, which lacked production

- The ridiculous crossing stats against Bilbao, and the context needed around them -- and around crossing stats in general

- Why on earth has Gareth Bale dropped down the depth chart?

- What do we do on the day Cristiano Ronaldo stops scoring?

- James Rodriguez fire incoming

- Rotations, tactical flexibility, and how much it correlates with success -- now and historically, Real Madrid or otherwise.
