Not to confuse anyone with that Real Madrid pumpkin image but it was Halloween yesterday and this pumpkin was carved beautifully by Vanessa so I thought why not show it to all :) Also, Happy Halloween everyone!

I have some fantastic news. Yours truly along with Kaushik and Bassam of Real Madrid Football Blog kicked off a podcast dedicated entirely to Real Madrid. It’s called “Merengue Bites” since Real Madrid are also called Los Merengues (after a sweet dessert).

In the first episode we talked about the Real Sociedad game at Anoeta where we won 1-0 through a Higuain goal and briefly looked ahead to the Champions League clash tomorrow v Lyon in France.

I posed the questions, while battling sleep at 5AM, to the two gentlemen in the know of things Real Madrid and they were pretty much forced to reply.

You can play the podcast from right here by using the player below or click on this link to go to the podcast site:

In the future there would be more people on the podcast and the best part for me personally is that there would be discussion about Castilla as well. Mer from Furia Valkyria Blog would discuss Real Madrid’s youth setup with Bassam in a separate episode real soon so watch this space :)
Ofcourse, you can subscribe to the podcast via RSS and hopefully the podcast would be available on iTunes in some time. Would love to hear your comments on the podcast, what we can discuss, what your questions are and any way we can improve. Cheers!
