I think this generation has its talents but it’s pretty clear they’re not the generation that was, yeah…I mean they got Castilla back into Segunda. There were SO many special players, it’s a shame we didn’t find use for pretty much anyone but Dani, Nacho & Jese (and the use~ we have for Jese, who is RIDICULOUSLY special, is arguable.)
She is & naaah I’m sure seeing Handsome Uncle Hierro was enough 4 her <333
Eh, no. Medran was amazing in the first half but he won’t get “put” on the first team. A few (Derik, RDT, etc) have had tons of raves from ppl for a while. Marcos Llorente just got a front page in Marca for being genius~ or whatever. Idt we’ll promote anyone to the first team this season, especially as Castilla need all the help they can get to get back into Segunda.
florentino perez is the man that said “if it were up to him” (as if it fucking isn’t) jese would be a first team player and that he’s “magic”. he then, of course, bought a shitton of players that would make his development in the first team pretty much impossible.
If Florentino doesn’t recognize the talent in the younger players and doesn’t give them a chance to play for the first squad, I will physically have to go to Madrid and smack some sense into this man.
okay I want you to watch Isco right now and just acknowledge the fact that we HAVE the future of spanish football and that’s it’s completely on us if we manage to screw that up.
thank uuuu! @ anon who was asking about the NYC peña!!!!
Madridismo is the identity of Real Madrid (or a population of madridistas, depending on how it’s used). Everyone interprets it differently, but it’s generally seen as the values of the club; passion for the shirt~~, determination, remontada, spirit, loyalty, a gentlemanly attitude, and on top of that, being the best club in the world. If I had to sum up what Real Madrid is through a player, it would be Iker, Raul and Alfredo di Stefano.
I could never say any of it as well as this quote, though:
"Real Madrid are words that are in my life. Real Madrid means triumph in victory and triumph in loss. Real Madrid is history, it is the day-to-day and it is what will happen, it is endless longing and endless expectation. It is courage, to overcome the rest and also itself, to overcome loss, to overcome victory. Real Madrid is the “at least” of a bad day and the “but” of a good day. It is suffering, it is loyalty and hope. It is Sunday afternoons and Monday mornings, it is something to talk about, something to converse over, it is something to share with many people. Real Madrid is a global idea, something that is worth all the effort. It is Bernabéu and Di Stefano, it is Chamartín and Cibeles, is it the green of the grass, it is pipes, it is cigars. It is smiles and applause, it is tears and whistles, it is joy and sadness, it is throats and voices. Real Madrid is not the goal scored, it is the next one. It is Madrid, Spain, Europe and the World. It is sport and spectacle. Real Madrid is eleven artists and eleven warriors. It is envy and admiration, it is relevant whether you hate or love it. Real Madrid does not leave one unconcerned. It is values and ideas, compromise and union. It is dreams and reality. There is one Real Madrid and there are many. Real Madrid is every person who makes it a part of their life, those who can see and do not stop watching, those who want to see but cannot watch. It is everyone and no one. It is more than football. It is sometimes an excuse and other times a reason. It was monarchy, republic, dictatorship and never stopped being democracy. It was first and it was second, it is leader without being champion. It is sporting heroes and kids from Madrid. It is front page news, hours of radio and television, it is the eternal debate and the nonexistent conclusion. It is, above all, ambition. It is the grandfather we all wish to have. Real Madrid was yesterday, it is today and it will be tomorrow. Real Madrid are words that I still do not know how to express."
