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, Ezek lx, NeRObutBlanco and YoSnail

“And when you’re out there without care..

Yeah I was out of touch

But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough

I just knew too much..” - Gnarls Barkley

Do you continue?

Real Madrid have never been good at goodbyes.

Real Madrid legend, Marcelo is apparently considering extending his stay at the club beyond this season. Once one of the brightest stars of world football, the Real Madrid captain is now a spent force at the highest level. Does it make sense to renew Marcelo?

Maestro and the grasshopper

Casemiro finally masters the ‘outside of the boot’ technique under the watchful eye of midfield supremo Luka Modric. It is only a matter of time before the Real Madrid number 10s stay is formally extended.


Karim Benzema is one goal away from equalling Raul’s record haul of 323 goals. I wouldn’t bet against him cruising past the record against Levante.

Destruction mode

Vinicius will be back on the war path against Levante after failing to secure a result against Atletico. Vinicius was not at his decisive best against the mattress makers.

Real Madrid boss, Carlo Ancelotti has suggested that the regular starters will take to the field at the Bernabeu in search of a victory. The manager stressed the importance of maintaining a rhythm before the Champions League final. This change in tune comes after a subdued or rather indifferent attitude shown after the derbi defeat to Atletico.

The makings of a GOAT

Tobias marvels at Eduardo Camavinga’s unparalelled passing skills after reading MM comments suggesting the boy wonder’s passing left a lot to be desired.**

Tobias, Gila, Peter, Retuerta and Morante are trained with the first team ahead of the Levante game.

Feels like it’s taking forever

Construction is still going on at the Bernabeu with the project likelyto end in December of 2022.

Number 8 going on 30

The world’s 8th best GK showed his fun side as he celebrated his 30th birthday. For a keeper, 30 years means he’s good for another 10 years especially if his passing keeps improving.

“My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on the limb

And all I remember is thinking I want to be like them

Ever since I was little..”
