Updates from last night’s prediction contest. Absolutely nobody predicted a Denmark win, so lots of things gone wrong in that match for us folks but Germany Portugal was slightly more predictable. Here is the table then, after two rounds. (Nomz, I vote in every article, so you can cross check xD) We at RMFB don’t believe in cheating you, except if it is of liveblog dollars, in which case I will swindle you until your bottom dollar!

Hola everyone, I hope everyone is ready for to cure their football withdrawals with the Euros. For starters, I created a mini league in the website of UEFA’s fantasy football. If you haven’t already make a team here and add yourself to this league 134886-32229. Apart from this regular reader Nomz suggested a game to keep everyone going during the tournament. And we decided that’s not a bad idea at all. It is different from what he originally suggested, but it is very similar to a game I played when I was active on a then popular Madridista forum. Its quite simple really. Every match day I will post the matches of the day, along with some questions. Everyone who wants to vote can leave their answers on the comments section. And at the end of the match you will get 1 point for each correct prediction you have made. And each day I will calibrate and update the standings and we will try to crown a champion at the end of the tournament. Its a lot of work for me, so I hope I can request for some small co-operation and for responses to be in the exact structure that I More >
We were all struck by the news of the death of one of the nicest and most important figures in Spanish football at the moment. Manolo Preciado was found dead in his hotel room the day after he accepted the job to join Villarreal. I was very happy to see the man with the glorious mustache be back in the game after losing his job with Sporting during the season. I even had a conversation with a couple of fans over how great of an appointment that would have been. This only made the news an even bigger shock when I heard of it. Alas, it is good memories that we should all keep of Preciado. A man with the courage to speak his mind and do so in a special way. He was no doubt a very special coach in specific, and human being in general. Mourinho had a few confrontations with Preciado last year, as Preciado stood up to a couple of comments that Mourinho made in the press. But it was only when Preciado’s Sporting beat Mourinho’s Real Madrid at home (1st time a Mourinho team loses at home in 9 years) did the relationship between him and Preciado More >
