Real Madrid Training Session

Rubiales : The End of Humpty Dumpty

The controversial boss of Spanish football finally caved into the unrelenting pressure and resigned. Hopefully he will get some help before he finds himself in deeper waters.

He doesn't deserve his mother or his friends.

Who would be a manager?


From treble winner to unfathomably poor with Die Mannschaft. It’s been extraordinary how poor Germany have been under Flick. I caught some heat for not jumping on the bandwagon when he won the treble. Would love to read the 10 000 page thesis apologising for his disappointing showing with the national team.


Young manager making waves with unreasonable expectations from madridistas that he’ll be a hit. Because managing Leverkusen isn’t so different from managing players who have won everything. Can’t wait to see him in the Bernabeu dugout, he’s still green but what do we care.


My favourite. No reason to expect greatness except that he’s a Real Madrid great. He took Castilla to the brink and fell at the last hurdle in spectacular fashion. Recently rejected by Villarreal in what looked like a promising career move.


Talented manager with a decent track record and burst on to the scene with so much hype that Real Madrid wanted him to replace Zidane not so long ago. Now he’s without a club after being unceremoniously dismissed by Die Roten.

Rodrygoals are coming!

The kid is hungry, he’s not a pure scorer yet but it will come. I loathe the international break because it interrupted his momentum.

Food for Thought

Ancelotti and Carvajal have been running PR cover for Real Madrid’s inability to replace Karim. Do you agree with the notion that Bellingham came in to replace Karim? And if so, is it sustainable?

Does the club have to consider moving on from Haaland and Mbappe and stick to the strategy that got us Vinicius and Rodrygo?
