Matchay 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, Felipejack, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Kung_Fu_Zizou


Courtois also misses out against Girona

2011/2012 Team

Karim has said that the 2011/12 league winners are the best Real Madrid side he’s played in. I disagree with the captain on this one.

The Turning point in our penalty shootout history

Following Neuer’s comments which made fun of Ronaldo and Ramos missing their penalties, he would go on to never win another game against Real Madrid. Ramos and Ronaldo become some of the most clutch penalty-takers in the game and went on to win 4 CL over the next 6 seasons.

The Reality and The Dream

With Kroos probably extending his, stay, it’s quite clear that he and Modric remain the future midfield of Real Madrid. That’s the reality. Next season which will be in the future, the midfield will realistically be Modric and Kroos and a coin toss.
