    Managing Madrid Podcast: Is Real Madrid Being Punished?

    in Soccer

    The Managing Madrid podcast is back, and hosts Gabe Lezra, Josh Zeitlin and Lucas Navarrete are here to answer the one question on everyone's minds: is Real Madrid being punished? In all seriousness, the guys break down Madrid's 3-1 win over Málaga, with goals from James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, and horrifying injuries to Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. How can Madrid rebound from their terrible luck and find a way to beat cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid in the return leg of the Champions League quarter-finals? How should coach Carlo Ancelotti line up his team with all the injuries they've suffered? And who is to blame for this horrible luck? Is Real Madrid being punished? 


    All this and more on this week's Managing Madrid podcast.

    Managing Madrid Podcast: Season Recap

    in Soccer

    Gabe Lezra, Josh Zeitlin and Bozz recap Real Madrid's disappointing 2014-2015 campaign, taking a look at each part of the team--from the underwhelming defense, to the sporadically brilliant midfield and forward lines. What went wrong for Real Madrid this year? What went right? Who is to blame? All this and more this week. 


    In addition, the guys take a bunch of listener questions and reflect on the state of the club going forward. Will Rafa Benitez be a good manager for the Whites? And what areas should Madrid target in the next transfer window? 


    And finally, they reflect on the recent FIFA implosion, with some appropriately vitriolic words for (now ex-!!!!) FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

    in Soccer

    The Managing Madrid Podcast is back, as host Gabe Lezra is joined by Josh Zeitlin and Bozz to discuss Real Madrid's recent form after Los Blancos' 0-0 draw against Atlético Madrid in the Champions League. Real Madrid has been on a better run of form since the side lost to Barcelona in the Camp Nou, and with a second leg against Atlético looming on the horizon, Gabe, Josh and Bozz break down los blancos' title chances. Are things really as bleak as they seam? Will Madrid be able to make it out of the round against Atleti, despite their horrendous record against los colchoneros this year? And if not, what will happen? Is Ancelotti on the cutting block? What about Casillas, Coentrao, and others?

    Managing Madrid Podcast: Ramblin' Recaps, Villarreal, and More

    in Soccer

    Hosts Gabe Lezra and Josh Zeitlin are back this week, sadly without the inimitable Lucas Navarrete to break down Real Madrid's 1-1 draw with Villarreal and talk about all things Los Blancos (and quite a few non-Real Madrid things). Gabe is just recovering from a really unplesant illness, and the two are in classic form, rambling qabout everything from luck in soccer to catalan independence to the temperature in Kelvin. Strap in, because it's going to be a weird ride.

    Managing Madrid Podcast: Previewing Real Madrid's Match Against Villarreal

    in Soccer

    Gabe Lezra and Josh Zeitlin sit down with VillarrealUSA's Allen Dodson (the editor-in-chief of SB Nation's Villarreal blog) to chat about Real Madrid's upcoming Liga BBVA tilt against Villarreal. The guys chat about Villarreal more generally, reminiscing about the changes the team has gone through since the last time Allen appeared on the show--back in 2012. Allen walks the guys through Villarreal's institutional and cultural transformation, how the purgatory of Segunda shaped the squad moving forward, and breaks down VIllareal's resurgent form this season. 


    The guys then break down the game: if you were Villarreal, how would you attack this Real Madrid side? Would you look to press forward? Sit back? What formation would you use, and what would you be looking for in the game to indicate thigns are going well?


    Finally, Gabe reads Allen some fan questions, ranging from Villarreal's prospects to possible transfer targets. All this and more on today's #MMPodcast!

    Managing Madrid Podcast: Tough Times

    in Soccer

    Hosts Gabe Lezra and Josh Zeitlin recap Real Madrid's recent tough stretch--going back to chat about Madrid's loss in Bilbao and their nail-biting showing against Schalke in the Bernabéu. Not a happy time for the guys, as Lucas Navarrete is out this week, and Gabe and Josh clearly need some consoling. They recap the Bilbao match, chat about the defensive failures that lead to the Schalke game being so close, and finally make some light of the 2-0 victory at home against Levante. What was making the team click? Is Modric's return exactly the tonic that Gareth Bale needed to find his scoring boots? And what on earth happened to Iker in that Schalke game

  • Did You Know Facts? On the Real Tip with Dluv

    in Fun

    Hey Podcast Land,


    Did you know that there are still a lot of things that you don't know?  Okay, just joking ;) !


    But , I wanna keep it real, there are a lot of known facts that I didn't know about!  I didn't know that the first match to ignite a flame was created by accident!  In the 19th century, John Walker a Pharmacist/Chemist, revolutionized the match by creating a "friction based" chemical that gave off a spark and ignited a fire that spreaded like wildfire!  WOW, just think about life without fire?!  However, the concept of the modern match was founded in the 1700's by alchemist Hennig Brandt.


    How about that car you drive or that camera you take pictures with - can you imagine or wonder how or what your life would be like without these inventions?  Well, I be thanking the LORD and doing the happy dance, cause don't know what we would do without tiolet paper!..Hee,Hee..guys just trying to make a point here...


    Okay, ya'll get my drift.  Tune in to hear some fun and interesting known facts, that you may not have known.


    Take care and talk to you on the air!
