FROM A KING TO A GOD: 18 April 2023

The Second Coming Edition of the Daily Merengue

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!



“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?!

A New LB Has Appeared

Rule #1: Don’t Believe Anything You Read on the Internet.

Rule #2: Believe What You Want To Believe on the Internet.

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.

Loose translations:

It’s probably safe to say that the Super League isn’t happening anytime soon...

Any way...who’s excited to hear that CL anthem?!
