Looks like Kubo’s winning the fanbase over

According to a poll from Marca, when asked if they want Kubo to stay for the upcoming season, 88% of Real Madrid fans answered that they did. It seems that his recent performances have caught the eye of the crowd.

“Kubo” huh? Remember this one?

Speaking of our japanese prospect, do any of you remember an old anime titled “Aoki Densetsu Shoot!” ? I used to watch that one as a kid. It was pretty fun. There was this character named Kubo Yoshiharu who was a super prodigy or something. He scored a goal-to-goal in an important game and umm... crossed to the other side on the spot right after that. Yeesh! Talk about a children show.

A decrease in members for the “untouchables” class

According to this article, Florentino Perez and his board, decided to not put the “Untouchable” label on as many players as they used to, to the point that even Mendy isn’t considered as such. Looks like the boys might have more to prove this time around and, as fans, we can only hope that this strategy works.

Have a great day and a beautiful August boys and girls. May the madridismo be with you all.
