Las Blancas Podcast: Therapy Session

Om Arvind and Grant Little let it out and break down Real Madrid Femenino’s 3-0 loss to Sevilla.

@marisabelrr1

On this Patron-only episode of Las Blancas Podcast, Om Arvind and Grant Little discuss:

  • Why this loss was so soul-sucking in particular
  • Sevilla not being that good
  • Whether anyone in charge of this team actually cares that we’re bad right now
  • Why Caroline Møller Hansen was less effective vs. Sevilla than Breidablik
  • The reasons getting a new manager in the present moment makes sense whichever way you look at it
  • Being unable to define what Real Madrid’s offensive structure is
  • Sympathizing with the fans’ sheer frustration
  • Getting stuff off of our chests
  • The deep block quandary
  • What Las Blancas need in a good coach
  • If David Aznar has ever executed a genuine tactical masterclass
  • Why the true blame lies with the people above Aznar now
  • Starting a dialogue around Claudia Zornoza’s shot selection
  • Lorena Navarro having an off day
  • Our lack of reaction to going down early
  • The bizarre Ivana Andrés and Babett Peter positional swap
  • Why the Møller-Athenea del Castillo duo worked vs. Breidablik and not against Sevilla
  • Why Nahikari García should’ve come on for Athenea and not Møller
  • Everything going to shit after Madrid conceded the second goal
  • Lucía Rodríguez in central midfield
  • The whole incident between Jessica Martínez and Olga Carmona and Madridistas’ response to that
  • Møller’s innocent optimism and the way it’s going to be pummeled to pieces over the course of this season
  • Updates on our press conference chances
  • Damaris Egurrola potentially joining the USWNT over Spain
