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.

There was a lot of debate at the time. What do we think, it’s 2024 vote for the better player:
