Friday Edition of The Daily Merengue

“My career with Real Madrid was a failure. I was injured a lot of the time. You wish your body wouldn’t always let you down, but that’s part of life.”- Jonathan Woodgate

Let’s get down to business..

The boys are at home Saturday night against relegation threatened Alaves. It seems it hasn’t sunk in that the 1-0 scoreline was deceiving given the impotent showing on Tuesday night.

Ancelotti and his boys have an opportunity against Alaves to learn or to dig in. Let’s hope they learn. We’ll be hoping to see some changes..after all, “There’s life in the old dog yet”

Real Madrid ran out 4-1 winners over Alaves in the opening game of the season. I twould be nice if they could recapture some of that early season, “freshness”.

This is why we can’t have nice things

Fans just wanna have fun

Lucas Silva? The Carlo curse?
