The Open Thread/Daily Merengue is a place where you can discuss anything and everything related to football. Feel free to discuss the topics presented here, or start your very own discussions! The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods you’d totally treat to noodles : Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, YoSnail, Ezek Ix or yours truly.

Squad List for the Elche Game

Ho... No Benzema? This probably means that one of Jovic and Mariano will have to step up to the plate...

♫ So step on up to the plaaaate

Meet your fate

Walkin’ straight on into the lion’s lair ♫

(The song is from a legendary videogame - Persona 4)

Do you think that’s the case or maybe Carlo tries something new entirely, like Marco/Hazard False 9. I’m personally hoping to see Jovic, as I believe that the 9’s positioning has been missed in a few games, like the later stages of the Osasuna one.

The Dream Club

If you don’t know who this is, don’t worry, it’s understandable. The youngster plays for the MLS team Dallas, as well as the USMNT. He is considered a prodigy. The following is taken from 90min:

Ricardo Pepi very suddenly became a household name across the United States in 2021.

The 18-year-old Texan starred for the United State’s Men’s National Team this fall, scoring three goals in four World Cup qualifying appearances and quickly rising in ranks.

Now, with 90min reporting that Pepi has submitted a transfer request to FC Dallas, it’s all but certain the young American will join a club in one of the major European leages.

We know it’s happening

Enjoy the weekend and may the Madridismo be with you all.
