Another Jose Juninho Edition of the Daily Merengue

Club America v Real Madrid

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 Long Live Juninho!




“Jose Juninho Out???!

Dont. Believe. Everything. You. Read.

Lol but actually a lot of you owe Soufiane Boufal an apology:

Camavinga + Rodrygo + Vini Play Football Today

Well maybe not Vini...there’s a rumor that he’ll be rested. Honestly, maybe not Camavinga ether cause he may be rested. So I guess Rodrygo plays football today...unless he’s rested. If he’s rested too then just [insert Real Madrid player] plays football today.

Do it Jude...Do it for the culture...

Ya’ll Have Angered Tchouameni

Like honestly, it’s less prevalent here which is a blessing. But this new RM / FT Twitter narrative that Tchouameni suddenly is only bench fodder and can’t ball is outrageous. Mans was kicking it back and forth early season. Mans was running the fields like a certified Top Boy in search of Ps. Tchouameni is a street legend - put respect on his name.

(Disclaimer: Tchouameni has my favorite assist of the year...his lob to Rodrygo against Atleti at the Wanda Metropolitano. Not only was it a great pass / goal, but it meant so much for the Derby and fighting racism in La Liga).

Long Quote for the Day:

“I say to the fans that the fans are the fans and have the right to their opinions and reactions but there is something that I used to call ‘football heritage’. I don’t know if, I try to translate from my Portuguese, which is almost perfect, to my English, which is far from perfect - ‘football heritage’, what a manager inherits...

When I arrived in Real Madrid, do you know how many players had played in the quarter-final of the Champions League? Xabi Alonso with Liverpool, Iker Casillas with Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo with Manchester United. All the others not even a quarter-final. That’s football heritage.
