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!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
“And right before the third day, he came back...Jesuninho” - NeRObutBlanco
Apologies if anyone is offended by the term Jesuninho. It was not our intention to offend. Simply a tongue in cheek joke about the timing of this comeback which wasn’t supposed to occur.
“It was one thing when they crowned him as a king but I’m unsure if it’s appropriate to deify a mod...?” - Valyrian Steel
“You’re probably right...but at the same time” - KungFuZizou
“What’s a king to a god??” - felipejack
“Posters on MM, telling me, always in the Daily Threads “Juninho ain’t about this, Juninho ain’t about that” They say “Juninho don’t be putting in no work,” Nah they can’t be serious..ya’ll clearly aint know him, all ya’ll talking sweet like “Juninho is lying about sleep, Juninho got grounded, Juninho aint the Special One, Juninho a fake. Juninho coming back as Mauricio Junittino (won’t lie GFE that was pretty funny). Now we need a new mod“ What are you saying? Ya’ll still don’t know Juninho. But you do know that Juninho got caught on BB fighting the Negreira case like Jon Snow unsheathing his blade in the Battle of the Bastards. Ya’ll know Juninho been on MM since...idk when. Stop playin’ him like that. Jose Juninho was a savage out there rollin with Rodrygo and them...crazy that he’s coming back. Long Live Juninho. From a king to a god. The Boogeyman. The Baba Yaga.” - Florentino Perez while listening to Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa”
“Day 1 of 30 of Juninho Appreciation Day” - Torez
So then I guess today is Day 2?!
*The majority of these quotes are actually real. Particularly the 1st and last.
Stamford Bridge. 90 mins (hopefully). Another FINAL.
Taking a 2-0 lead, our boys are on their way to compete for the a trip to the CL semifinals to face Bayern/City. As always with this Real Madrid team, no lead is sacred and this game is going to be fun. Rumors are that we will field the same team as the 1st leg, but maybe Carlo has a bit of black magic up his sleeves?!

I so so so want this to be true.

Grab Your Popcorn..
If you haven’t been following today’s (well for ya’ll yesterday’s) news, Laporta decided to not provide evidence dismissing Barcelona’s wrongdoing in the Negreira case and instead fueled Cule suspicions of Real Madrid favoritism from Franco and La Liga. I don’t have time to provide a history lesson, but please Google Francoist Spain to understand the seriousness of these allegations. Florentino and the club clearly didn’t like this and had the graphic design team whip up maybe the greatest clap back of all time.

‼️ In the video published by RMTV, they also remind Barça's president that during Franco's regime, Barcelona won 8 league titles, 9 Cups of 'Generalísimo' and during that period it took Real Madrid 15 years to win a league - asking "Who was really Regime's team?" @marca #rmalive pic.twitter.com/gASqFpByKt— Madrid Zone (@theMadridZone) April 17, 2023
It’s probably safe to say that the Super League isn’t happening anytime soon...
Real Madrid will no longer have any regard towards Barça after Laporta’s recent statements. What happened with Atléti will happen to them. @marca— Madrid Xtra (@MadridXtra) April 17, 2023
In the past, many players from Barça’s academy had their agents call Real Madrid to seek a possible transfer but all have been ignored due to the relationship both clubs had. This will now change. @marca— Madrid Xtra (@MadridXtra) April 17, 2023
