The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!
Shoutout to the mods who do a fantastic job, Valyrian Steel, KungFuZizou, NeRObutBlanco, Felipejack, and Juninho!
Just not good enough before El Clasico.
Los Blancos have qualified for the knockout rounds but that was a very poor effort against a spirited Shakhtar side. Carlo made changes but the team came out flat and needed Rudiger to come to the rescue to secure a point with a warrior like effort. The game was covered extensively in the immediate reaction, 3 stats, player ratings and 3 answers and 3 questions articles as well as the Managing Madrid Podcast. The team will need to produce a much better showing in El Clasico.

I’m not ringing the alarm bell yet but he needs to break this trend soon.
KB9 just hasn’t looked himself lately. Whether its the recent injury or just a dip in form he needs to buck the trend and get on the scoresheet, preferably in El Clasico and remind the world why he’s about to win the Balon D’or.

And the drama returns!!
I’m only surprised by how fast it’s returned though someone needs to remind Kylian what a golden cage is again.
Kylian Mbappé, not happy with Paris Saint-Germain as current situation is really tense. He wants to leave the club, as soon as possible. #Mbappé— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) October 11, 2022
Paris Saint-Germain feel he’s really putting pressure on the club — they have no intention to sell Mbappé in January. pic.twitter.com/tETVVxB2yy
