The title of the article says it all. La Decima was fantastic. The euphoria that comes with such a title can last for a long time. Somewhere between then and the World Cup, the realities of next season began to hit us. With the rumours for Kroos building up, everything looked to be heading in the right discussion. Almost everything, the signing of Kroos almost meant a complete shift and a total buy-in of the Ancelotti system. A consequence of that of course was – what then happens of Di Maria? This was a consequence Real Madrid was expected to make a decision one way or another, all the way back in June. Yesterday however, something came up totally out of the blue. Xabi Alonso agrees to terms with Bayern Munich. WHAT? Collectively almost all of Madridismo was shocked. There’s a phase after coming to know about a piece of news, and trying to rationalize and process it. It is a dark place, and the news of Xabi, it is safe to say, put a lot of us in that dark place.
Mark, Bassam, Kaushik and Ryan join forces to review the disappointing Supercopa defeat to Atletico Madrid and discuss the Alonso-Kroos-Modric midfield partership, James Rodriguez’s best position and the Angel Di Maria situation.
More importantly, the gang pow-wow over Real Madrid’s reported dragon-watermarked black third kit and which Real Madrid player would likely bake the best cake!
