BALON D’OR KARIM BENZEMA
FINALLY - FINALLY, King Karim Benzema aka Big Benz aka El Gato finally gets the respect he deserves with a Balon D’Or. Also truly fitting that Zinedine Zidane hands the Frenchman this massive trophy. Honestly, congratulations to Benz on a fantastic season and leadership of our squad. This Daily Thread is primarily dedicated to him!

Also Congratulations to Courtois
Although it would have been amazing to see Tbo on the podium, it is still a well-deserved prize for him to be named the best goalkeeper in the world!

Benzema HYYYYPE VIDEO(s)
Outstanding in every single way...
Where Does Benz Rank in Real All-Time Greats?
Earnestly, not trying to start a heated debate, but was curious where MM ranks Benzema as an all-time Real Madrid great? Personally, I think he qualifies for Top 5 legend status considering his statistics and timelessness at the club.
No Poll because we don’t need strangers muddying our input.
He’s definitely the #1 swag/drippy/litty Real Madrid player of all time...
The Streets Belong to King Karim Benz
