What comes next after you win a double?

In the beautiful football vs trophies debate, I’ve always maintained that Real Madrid seems to favor the following hierarchy:

  • Trophies with attractive football
  • Trophies with not as much attractive football
  • Zero silverware but team plays attractive football
  • Zero silverware and not much attractive football

Now I think we’re squarely in the second bucket and should start to aim for the first. We are always a forward thinking club, no time for nostalgia. In my estimation our football needs to improve and the Bernabeu expects it as well. It is a theatre at the end of the day. I’d like to see more one-touch fast paced football that Los Blancos teams of yore were known for. But first how many even agree with my assessment?
