Day Four: 13 July 2023

Thursday 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, Kung_Fu_Zizou, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Felipejack.

Pre-season training continues...

AS reported that Pintus training sessions will be more intense in the upcoming days.

Jude is back!

Some fans expressed their concerns for not seeing Jude training with the team on Tuesday. He was with physiotherapists to strengthen the muscles around his knee. He has returned and trained with the team yesterday.

Will the diamond work?

There are recent reports stating Carlo will try a 442 diamond formation in the new season. Relevo also reported it:

From previous reports, the #10 role is Jude’s place in the system. This formation would also help Arda Güler. Rodrygo might also be used in the position (even though we have many mids, but fewer forwards...)

Before voting, it’s worth reading Kiyan’s article about Jude in a diamond.
