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, KungFuZizou, NeRObutBlanco, Felipejack, and Juninho!
Although I don’t really trust relovo as a source, it’s a slow news day, so we’re going to latch onto some ‘petty tings’. I am an ardent Rodrygo fan. There is only one goat — Rodrygo, and Juninho is simply his prophet. I am the prophet of La Iglesia de Rodrygo y Latter Day Santos. But simply put: Joselu HAS to start. He’s our only real ST and the only forward who looks comfortable in this 4-4-2. Now if it’s true that Flo is worried about us transitioning to becoming only a cross focused team with Joselu, that’s a massive issue and condemnation of Flo (for not buying a different striker) and Carlo (for not being tactically depth enough to create a non-cross based system with Joselu). I’d much rather see Joselu than Rodrygo as a starter. In a perfect world, I’d much rather see Joselu than the additional midfielder (aka Kroos / Modric / Cama). Again, I don’t fully believe this rumor but it is what it is.

The new WC set up by FIFA is a bit farcical (the 2030 will be hosted in Morocco, Spain, and Portugal, but Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay will open their matches at home to commemorate the WC anniversary). However, it is cool that the final will be at the Santiago Bernabeu. Anyway, we’re 7 years away from this.
