The Open Thread/Daily Merengue is a place where you can discuss anything and everything related to football. Feel free to discuss the topics presented here, or start your very own discussions! The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods you’d love to do a nightout with: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou (AKA KFZ), Juninho and, of course... yours truly.

Our Opponents to Be in the CWC Final

That’s if we make it through the semis, of course.

A Message Full of Hope

Look, a remontada like this would require two miracles at this point.

Two, Barcelona would have to stop winning games they shouldn’t.


So, we are expected to do something, eh? Remember the good ol’ days, when we knew there would be fireworks in the summer transfer window? Yeah, me too. These days, though, it looks like reinforcements we obviously need are the exception, rather than the rule.
