Full time: Real Madrid 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur.


Time for the Audi Cup! As Real Madrid take on Tottenham Hotspur, this is our best chance to see how our European competitors are shaping up at the height of preseason. Zidane especially will be looking for a pick-me-up victory after a less than stellar preseason campaign so far — but don’t expect Gareth Bale to make an appearance.

As for Bayern Munich, well we’re going to be playing against Fenerbahce a few hours later, so stay tuned for that too.

Tips for commenting:

  1. If you’re a new member, feel free to introduce yourself. Don’t feel pressured or anything, we’re mostly very friendly. Also, we’re from all parts of the world so don’t feel shy if you’re from a country that doesn’t seem represented on the blog.
  2. Refresh the page regularly to keep up with the discussion. One refresh every 55-60 seconds is ideal but if that’s too much then just try for one every five minutes and after every goal.
  3. The goal celebrations are for everyone to participate in. Even if you’re lagging behind the others, keep replying to the most recent call of the player’s name. Even if you missed the first call, just start from the second, and so on.
  4. While swearing is allowed within reason, please be polite to your fellow posters and avoid gratuitous obscenities.

Check out our beginners thread if you have any more questions. That’s about it. Auf geht’s!
