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, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Valyrian Steel.

Strong finances yet again so where is the spending?
As highlighted in Matt Wiltse’s article, the club is on a solid financial footing with year end income exceeding pre pandemic levels. Stadium income from the new Bernabeu is expected to shoot up in the coming years as well. All this is in no small part thanks to Florentino Perez’s vision and we should be immensely thankful that we have a proper Madridista at the helm. One area that still puzzles me is why the lack of spending especially in key areas of need? Has the stadium renovation been more expensive than anticipated? Having a nice foundation is great but not if it doesn’t translate into silverware. They’ve been rumors that Caro hasn’t got the signings he’s requested but he’s too nice to come out and say so.
