My fellow comrades in arms, in 4 days we go to war against the dark, malicious, formidable force that topples the league in horror. Prepare yourselves and know that whatever may come, we must not go down without a fight. February had only 28 days, and they were able to survive it. But we must ruin their start to March. I call on the forces of Asensio the Absorber of chances, Mariano the once in a while god, Isco the Wanderer and Vinicius the Unfinishable. Together they must snap into form and bring down the stronghold that be...Atletico. Led by Warlock Simeone. They must not stand any longer. 3 Points we need.


Mourinho stirs the pot with recent comments on Gareth Bale’s resurgence. Keylor Navas reminisces on his time with us. Real Madrid Femenino bounces back to winning ways vs EDF Logrono with Chioma Ubogagu making a scoring return from injury.


Reports in Italy are that Inter has offered us pizza coupons in place of the 10 MIL cash installment fee they owe us for Hakimi. Going by reports in Italy, they still haven’t paid us the past due installment fee for Hakimi. 2 years back, Perez confirmed that they tried to get Luka Modric on a free (No Payments)...and his contract wasn’t running out.
