COMO NO TE VOY A QUERER?
“Ey, a vece quisiera quedarme pela’o pa empazar a josear otra vez, y hacerme millo de nuevo...mira cómo me muevo...yo cambié el juego” - MR. OCTOBER (Track #5)
Another CL night in Madrid and another performance by Mr. October himself, Rodrygo Goes. A scintillating performance with an early assist, “magesterial” chip, a line breaking pass eventually leading to Vini’s goal, and honestly should’ve won a penalty. Of course, we’d be remiss to mention the fantastic game by Brahim “Shadow Realm” Diaz, Vini “I Got Whistled And Silenced The Haters” Jr., and Andriy “My Name Is NOT KEPA” Lunin. Really tho, Lunin doesn’t make that PK save and this game probably goes upside down. And props to Carlo for sticking by the Brazilians.

Rodrygo, vocal a few times this season about his gratitude for Ancelotti's patience with him, says this about the hug: "When we are not in a great moment, we see the real people.

“Llevo cinco año’ en la cima como Tim Duncan” — VUELVE CANDY B (Track #14)
Here are a few interesting quotes from Carlo Ancelotti concerning the game:
“[Brahim] showed great quality and sacrificed defensively too. So, this means he might play more minutes. The thing is, his best position, where he played today, is where Bellingham was playing so well”
“Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid is over? No comment. I won’t answer this.”
“Piqué lives in his world, which isn’t the world of Madridismo. There is no Madridista who will forget the 14th, not one.”
And a few words regarding Pique’s ill-advised comments:
Pique says "no one will remember Real Madrid's last Champions League title". I know, I know, it's a set phrase and all that, but I never really understand why people come up with lines like that. Of course people will remember it. I remember 0-0 draws from 20 years ago, ffs.— Sid Lowe (@sidlowe) November 8, 2023
WHERE SHE/HE/THEY GOES?
“Baby, dime la verdad si te olvidaste de mi” - WHERE SHE GOES (just listen to the album)
Seems like everyone was in Madrid today according to Chiringuito. I refuse to really believe their reports but besides the game analysis (which can be found in MM Podcast + Immediate Reaction), there’s limited news today.
