Real Madrid Training Session

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, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Kung_Fu_Zizou

Real Madrid CF v CA Osasuna - LaLiga EA Sports

Going back to how we started?

This suggested lineup looks eerily similar to the one used in the first game of the season. In that game Bellingham occasionally helped the left side defensively as well.

If I was a betting man, whoever suggested this lineup did it to spark talk about Kroos and Modric. Kroos will definitely start against Sevilla. He is well rested and ready to go.


These guys cannot take responsibility for anything even after their colleagues have been arrested for corruption. My goodness. Luckily for them, the English media absolutely loves Barcelona.

High Praise

Always good to see veterans showing admiration to younger players. Kroos is known to be a straight-talker who does use superlatives to get his message across. If he and Luka say the kid is the real deal. We better believe it.

Life Is A Rollercoaster

The streets are mumbling again. Well, the source tends to be accurate on inside-info about the club all the way to the dressing room. So.. In the words of the late great DMX, “Here we go again!”
