First Things First

Happy birthday, legend.

Now then... What in Football Heavens was THAT?

Did you catch the last game? First of all, I can understand a 4th division team not having a Santiago Bernabeu-class pitch but that pitch simply didn’t look like it was up-to-standard. As for the game itself, it was one of those games where you say “okay, this can go very wrong...”, but, in the end, a Rodrygo solo golazo saved us the embarassment. Seriously. DID. YOU. SEE. THAT. By all means, a goal worth watching. The tight control, the angle, the aim, the finish... great stuff. A few things things were, of course, pretty much what you’ve come to expect. For example, Hazard didn’t show up again, apart from a few cool flicks.

Fair to Say These two Are Getting Along


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