Today we have Alice_Complex from Twitter (must follow BTW!). If you are watching any football game and can’t find a good stream, then she’s the one to ask (especially during Real Madrid games). Hence my name for her “stream lady” :)
Tanuj : First up, tell us about you.
Alice : I’m a journalist living in Madrid (not a sports journalist, though). I’m very curious: I love films, live music, skating, traveling, getting lost and trying new things each day. I also love football, I played when I was younger and I spend most of my weekends (and week-nights!) watching matches.
T : Since when have you been a Real Madrid fan? (if you happen to remember)
A : I do remember, it wasn’t that long ago. I’m a big Michael Owen fan, and I started watching every RM match after they signed him. Even though Michael didn’t get to play a lot and he ended up going back to England, I kept on watching Real Madrid. Somehow I wasn’t bitter because Michael wasn’t treated better by the club or anything. On the contrary, I loved the club, the players and everything Real Madrid. So I guess I became a fan around that time :)
T : What is your favourite part of Real Madrid football club?
A : Hard one! I think my favourite part of the club is the history. There are a lot of interesting facts about the club! And the people that played for the club are some of my favorite players (which also makes me love the club more, they always sign my fav boys!)
T : Which has been your all time favourite Real Madrid player?
A : It’s hard to choose only one player. I would say Raúl and Zidane are my two favourites. But I also like Guti, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo… so many!
T : A Real Madrid moment you can’t forget?
A : “La liga de Capello” and its celebration. I wanted to be at Cibeles so much! I hope now that I’m in Madrid I can be part of something like that.
T : La Liga or UCL, which one would you love to see us win more?
A : La décima is a dream all madridistas share. I think winning La Liga, UCL, and Copa del Rey would be amazing; but winning UCL would be our biggest achievement.
T : Which has been your favourite signing for this season? (excluding Mourinho)
A : Ozil. He’s amazing, I love seeing him play.
T :Which game did you most enjoy this season?
A : It must be the match against Murcia for Copa del Rey at the Bernabeu. I enjoyed it the most because I was there! It was great to sit there, see everything live, the players up close. It was one of the best nights of my life, and hopefully it won’t be the last!
