No More Words Needed

Barcelona Femeni Shoot Down the White Ladies

Yes, it was the expected result after all, but the girls put up a good fight against a much more experienced and accomplished Barcelona team boasting the Ballon D’Or winner A. Putellas - who scored the winning goal in the 91st (ffs...) minute. We’re still proud of the effort and we’ll get them next time!

Let’s ... Move on to Happier Stuff, Shall We...

Pogba - Yes, Again

So, how often is it we’re discussing this?

I do remember the MM crew discussing a potential Paul Pogba move to Real Madrid a while ago and they mentioned how it’d be the perfect fit for the team. They’re not wrong in terms of playstyle, though I’d want to see more defensive effort from him if he’s to play for us. But that’s just me, however objective I think this viewpoint is. What do YOU think?

(One thing’s for sure though... How many times have we seen these news. Sheesh!)

And the Training Continues

Nero Time: Have you ever used “Esaka Continues” from KoF XIII as workout music? It works like a charm. Highly recommended, as is King of Fighters as a whole.

Oh and here’s another bell the below post rings...
