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 would totally treat to cocktails: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, YoSnail, Ezek Ix or yours truly.


Gentlemen and brethen, as leader of the Militao Militia Movement of the North. I hearby announce to you that today, rather this week, marks the beginning of the Militao Militia Era. Now that Both Varane & Ramos are gone in one fell swoop. Militao’s time is now, that’s if our club don’t decide to sell him too the way we’re letting our CB’s go. From being ridiculously labelled “Not Madrid Quality” despite the limited playing time in the odd matches he was afforded. To now showing the world what he’s capable of late last season. This season could truly be the beginning of another legendary CB in the making. IMO, he’s one of only 3 expensive brazilians in our team that’s worth the 50 Mil we paid for him....Vini and Rodrygo gotta step up big time.


Just as barca are currently offering members of their first team and La Masia players on the unholy alter as a burnt offering for Lionel Messi’s wages. We seem to be doing the same for Mbappe, with the sale of Varane, Ramos exit (I didn’t mind this one) and Odegaard could be next (Carlo & Perez shouldn’t drop the ball on Ode). Unfortunately, we can’t seem to sacrifice Isco, Bale, Marcelo, Modric and Ceballos for some odd reason. Every time we put them on the altar, a lamb appears in the bushes to take their place.


I hope that in our current financial lack, our club will now begin to look inward at our Castilla and begin to utilize the many gems we have there. This will also be financially healthy for our club’s economical output as the castilla players all have cheap salaries. Whilst being able to successfully avoid huge transfer and agent fees for external imports.


Tuesday 27th, July 2021 marked the complete end of our golden trinity of CB’s. From Pepe to Ramos and now Varane. But on the optimistic side, this could also be the start of a new line of CB’s. Maybe not this season judging by the way our club is moving (or not moving) in the transfer window.


Thou sins have been forgiven thee for thine crimes against the community. Ye are free and mustn't be bound anymore. Thou hath seen the wrath of the mods and the mods hath shown thee mercy. But it’s all cool bro!!
