Will Vengeance be Los Blancos’?
The Copa Del Rey draw for the R32 gave Real Madrid an interesting opponent... That team being none other than Alcoyano. I’m sure you remember the 3rd division team that made Los Blancos taste bitter defeat and humiliation last season. Perhaps it’s time for revenge? I say it’s very probable, since Ancelotti is less likely to rotate as much as Zidane did in the same game last season.

“Get to know ya” Series: Favourite Videogame OST
Not sure how many of you play videogames, but I thought this would be an interesting one to make. Of it isn’t immediately obvious, this is because I discovered some really good tracks the other day. Enjoy and.. you know what? Give your mod something to love! Most of my picks will be from olders games but game soundtracks include plenty of hidden gems! As usual, you’ll get some songs from me in the comment section. As usual, you’ll get my picks in the comment section.
Have a great weekend and may the mods be with you.
