One Step Closer, Albeit in an Unconvincing Manner

After an international break that felt like an eternity of applying icepacks following the trashing in the Bernabeu, Saturday evening saw Los Blancos face Celta, a competent team in their own home turf. The visitors took the three points home, but was the display convincing? Dominant? Heck no. One thing I’ll personally take away (once again) is that we can’t press to save our lives.

Other than the above, get ready Madridistas, cause there’s a burst stream of comments and accusations coming our way regarding the three (yes, THREE) penalties Real were awarded. Look, we haven’t been given plenty of penalties that should have been called in quite a few games recently, but three penalties given in a game in favor of the giant... yeah, it’s bound to raise a few eyebrows. But what do you think? Were those the right calls?

Make sure you have a great day cause tomorrow is Monday (uh...). May the Madridismo be with all of us.
