Ancelotti being Awesome

We avoided [Antoine] Griezmann or Joao Felix hitting on the counter, the low block allowed us to control them well. If Simeone says that we defended well in low block I say thank you, it’s a compliment.

Gotta love Don Carlo.

Well at Least there’s a Plan for the New Death Star

So uh... Regarding Potential Suitors for Asensio...

IU’ll just be quick about this:

  • According to Calciomercato, Milan are one team interested in getting Marco for free.
  • According to Mundo Deportivo... - seen it coming yet? - another team interested in Marco are... Barcelona!!! Well I mean, he does tick a few boxes alright. Though not the most explosive, he can play on both wings and even especially through the center...and that left foot... They also see him as a mature player though by no means old, so he ought to have a few years ahead of him.

Have a nice day and may the Madridismo be with you all.
