Thursday Edition of The Daily Merengue

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, Felipejack, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Kung_Fu_Zizou

Ancelotti’s men perphaps needed to do away with the yoke of being unbeaten. The poor showing against Leipzig seemed to suggest the challenge didn’t appeal to them.

Bad games are part of every season and now we can only hope the players don’t expect to get away with these types of performances. Ancelotti was calm while Courtois said his teammates were not at their expected level of aggression for the game.

Timing is everything

Real Madrid’s policy of paying a premium for young talent has borne dividends in recent years. The trend is likely to continue

Can the boys repeat last season?

And by the way LMAO!!!!!!! Thursday night football is about to be lit!
