The Open Thread/Daily Merengue is a place where you can discuss anything and everything related to football. Feel free to discuss the topics presented here, or start your very own discussions! The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods you’d love to drink Dunkel beer with: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou (AKA KFZ), Juninho or... yours truly.

Have a great week and may the Madridismo be with ya!
