La Liga is technically not over, but the number of people giving a damn about the remaining matches can be counted with fingers. Everyone is looking ahead to the next season. Mourinho is out and we will have a piece by Bassam in the coming days to analyse his three years here, but before that here is your go to article for all the transfer rumours surrounding Real Madrid for the upcoming season. Believe me there is no shortage of them.
I over-read discussion in the internet where folks were grading Mourinho’s time at Real Madrid based on several factors. Titles, change he brought in, institutional changes, expectations to delivery etc. It makes for a good poll, so here you have it.
Vote and maybe tell us why you made that choice in the comments section. Hala Moud.. oops Hala Madrid.
[UPDATE]- If you can’t see the poll due to some stupid colouring issue that I can’t fix (check my reply to Labomba’s comment), you can use this direct link to see the poll and vote.
I trust you have read our first preview, that is, the Q&A with Garreth. If you haven’t yet, here’s the link for it. In exchange with that post, I also did a Q&A on their site which you can find here. Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know that the Copa del Rey final is being played on Friday (May 17) between Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu
Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid will lineup against each other in the final of the Copa del Rey. For the first time in a while, the Spanish national anthem will not be booed at because of course, both teams are from Madrid. Its also apt, in a certain way, for the same reason, that these two teams ended up in the final. We will be publishing a standard preview either tonight or tomorrow morning, but until then, to whet your appetite, we decided to collaborate again, with a wonderful Atletico blog. For those who have been with RMFB for a while now, you are probably aware of the constant collaborations we do with Madrid Atleticos, an excellent English Language Atleti blog. Garreth, from their blog, and myself from here, decided to exchange a brief set of questions to have each other answer. In this post, you can find the answers to my questions, given by Gary and on their site, you can find my answers to his questions. Don’t forget to bookmark their website and visit it regularly, it is quality stuff, I assure you. If you’re on twitter, you can also follow their feed here.More >
