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, Felipejack, Kung_Fu_Zizou, Juninho, NeRObutBlanco and yours truly, Valyrian Steel.

Well that was entertaining.

That Real Madrid DNA shining through once again. The players looked exhausted after all that effort and one can only hope there is no repercussions for the rest of our season because of this. Goals galore by defenders and then Brahim applied the coup de grace. Barcelona or Osasuna await in the final. Read more about the game in the immediate reaction and player ratings articles as well as the Managing Madrid Podcast.

Never change Toni. Masterclass on what to do when you’re constantly boo’d by the crowd.

There really should be no debate.

Something insane happens when Kepa is in goal. Either it's a crazy save or he does something like this. Anyone who watched him at Chelsea could see this from a mile away. Lunin should be the undisputed starter.

You know where else there shouldn’t be a debate?

A certain PSG player is Brahim lite with less passion and a bigger contract. This boy needs to start games now. The big games. 10 min cameos are pointless and downright unfair.

Seats still available on the gluten free express.

No one seems to be missing Hakimi anymore. We should still sign a right back in the summer though.
