The Open thread will be posted every day by one of the mods you’d totally do a cocktail night with: Valyrian Steel, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou (AKA KFZ), Juninho and, of course... yours truly.

That’s One Down, One to Go

Los Blancos took down Al Ahly in the semi final of the Club World Cup. I won’t lie, my heart started recording a few more beats per minute after the made the Egyptian side pulled one back and then Luka missed a penalty, but, ultimately, Madrid finished the game as winners, with a score of 4 to 1. Wanna know the best part? My boy Arribas scored about a minute after coming on!

Our Boy Scored!

Sergio Arribas finally managed to play for a (really short) while and... scored! I can’ even believe I’m saying this. I’m super happy for the youngster and I know I’m not the only one. Here’s to watching you score a lot more for Real Madrid, Segio.
