Bon dia da Lisboa! So, the first time in 7 months I leave town for the weekend, and look what kind of story I miss. I know this has already been talked about in various threads, I just wanted to get a front-page post up on the Robben-Ribery brawl-for-it-all. Apparently, the two wings got into a fist-fight in the locker room - over here, the word is the subject was who´s going to take the free kicks. Not sure if anyone has any deeper information.



Definitely not what we needed ahead of the huge Real Madrid match on Wednesday ... although it´s worth noting that the team has been able to put aside personal differences to score goals and win matches before. I think the bigger issue will come as the season ends, with the Daily Mirror along with other publication indicating that this increases the likelihood that Robben will want out. Does anyone have any better or newer information on the matter? If so, share below - I just wanted to get something up top because it was such a big story. I get back into the States tomorrow, and will have the Real Madrid preview up then. My thanks to Kate, Seth and everyone else who took care of Game Day needs.
