Goodbye Real Madrid Football Blog

It is with a very heavy heart, that we at RMFB, would like to bring you the sad news that this site will be no more from 28 March 2015. A lot of factors have contributed to this decision, and we deliberated this a lot, and on prior occasions as well, but we believe that now may be a good time to retire the site. Each one of us contributors have a special story about what this blog means to us, so without further ado, here is a farewell note from all of the writers.


Ep. 26 Merengue Bites — BBC Go Off Air At Athletic Bilbao

Mark, Rahul and Ryan discuss Real Madrid’s toothless performance in a 0-1 reverse at Athletic Bilbao and the implications of the result on the title race. The guys discuss the BBC’s recent ineffectiveness and the impact of playing without Modric and James and look forward to Real Madrid’s Champions League Round of 16 second leg.

On a lighter note, this week’s IsraQM segment has the guys contemplating a doomsday scenario involving Real Madrid players.

Also, as always, listener questions ranging from how important Marcelo is to us to would we trade CR for 3 good young players. Also, Oscar fever has spread to the podcast as well, also Freaky Friday.

Episode 24 – Picking ourselves up after the Derbi debacle

Kaushik and Ryan review the Deportivo win which lifted the spirits of the squad and fans lightly after the derbi debacle. They focus on Bale’s impressive performance, and Illarra’s equally disappointing show. The crew also discusses Lucas Silva’s debut and answers some excellent (as always) listener questions such as – What is the best and worst Real Madrid debut we have seen? What would our squad players be in life if they weren’t footballers.. Yup, what a question! And of course.. CL is back, so some predictions are in the show as well. Enjoy!
