Episode 21 – Ronaldo Sees Red

This week, Mark, Kaushik, Rahul and Ryan address the talking points surrounding Real Madrid’s disappointing performance against Cordoba, including Ronaldo’s poor performance and behaviour and a questionable defensive display. We also look ahead to a tricky series of games and discuss how best to cope in Ronaldo’s absence.

The guys also look into the Merengue Bites crystal ball and ponder what exciting new signings Martin Odegaard and Lucas Silva could bring to the team in coming years, and what their signing means for Asier ‘Batman’ Illarramendi.
