Graham Girard ,

I love these guys!

This podcast has taught me how to be civil and discuss the beautiful game with my delusional Barca loving friends in a loving way. You can tell these guys genuinely like each other a lot. Kiyan and Diego never hide their love of their teams and I love it when they go at each other. But there is a genuine respect and appreciation. They do their best to be fair to the opposing side. I feel like I am just hanging out with these guys at a bar when I am listening to it. Very laid back and hilarious too! A highlight of my week!

Find a home in God ,

Inconsistent

They forget to do podcasts before or after classicos. That’s my most anticipated time to tune in, but they still haven’t done one and the Classico was two weeks ago. I like when Diego talks about his beliefs and about God. I believe in Jesus and the gifts of the Holy Spirit and he doesn’t and it’s fun to hear his enlightened thoughts. It’s also funny how he gets on Kiyans nerves! I’m a Real Madrid fan but I think Diego is much more balanced and realistic toward Real Madrid than Kiyan is. Anyway, I really would love to listen to more Diego but I only have two stars because they often don’t do the podcast or just one does a solo and they aren’t as good.

Dragon Pearl 23 ,

In defense of Diego and this great podcast.

Seen some comments and reviews that are fairly critical of Diego.... seriously folks, be real. This is a great podcast in particular because of the biases Kiyan and Diego being to the table. They are lifelong fans of bitter rivals, there will be arguments. It’s like family.

As a Life-long Madridista I appreciate the counter points and views that Diego brings to the table, and the insight this brings to the rivalry and to the game in general.

So yeah the podcast is great, but this isn’t just more Managing Madrid content. You’ll have to listen to some views you don’t agree with. Hopefully you put on your big boy pants or your big girl pants and you can handle a little disagreement - it’s the perfect compliment to the sweetness of the Churros.
