    Ep. 62 – Real Madrid is Back, Football is Back

    Real Madrid took the field against Barcelona in Las Vegas this past Saturday, July 23rd for a pre-season "friendly" El Clásico. While the 1-0 result in favor of the Blaugrana may be disappointing to some Madridistas, it's really important to remember that this is the first pre-season game for Los Blancos after having won their 14th UCL Champions league and 35th LaLiga title.



    It's also important to remember that the pre-season is used to get players back into competition rhythm before the start of the season and to experiment with lineups, analyze newly arrived players, and in some cases see which players will or should be on the chopping block during the transfer window.



    For many Real Madrid fans and pundits, this 0-1 pre-season loss also served to drive home the point that Real Madrid needs to add depth to their attack because, without Karim Benzema, goals will be more difficult to come by and if the Frenchman gets injured or needs to be rotated, Mariano or Eden Hazard in a false 9 role will not cut it. In addition, a natural RW would also do wonders to give Rodrygo, who is truly better as an LW, some competition, since Marco Asensio's inconsistency leaves Los Blancos lacking depth on the right flank as well.



    But it's not all doom and gloom for Real Madrid, although the self-hating, self-loathing, never-happy-with-anything Madridista types would like to say otherwise. This team is currently UCL and Spanish champions, sure we need to add a bit of depth, but there is plenty to be excited about and the season has yet to start.



    In this episode, we discuss the pre-season game against Barcelona, the debuts of Rüdiger and Tchouameni, possible transfers, some Madridistas obsession with Barcelona's transfer window, and more.



    Real Madrid is back, which means Y Nada Mas is back, and football season is back!



    VAMOSSSSSS!

    Ep. 61 – An Epic Season Discussed feat. Helal Uddin

    The fireworks have stopped, the confetti has been cleaned up, and maybe (just maybe) the hangover has subsided. But Madridistas are still coming to terms with Real Madrid having once again won a Champions League Final. Their 14th-time lifting "La Orejona", the most coveted trophy in European Football.



    In this episode, we are joined by YNM Contributor Helal Uddin and we discuss what was without a doubt an epic season. We discuss the evolution of Vinicius, Benzema's incredible season, Valverde's important role, and Ancelotti's decisions that ultimately lead Real Madrid to their 14th UCL trophy and 35th La Liga title.



    We also take discuss what we are looking forward to in the 2022-2023 season. Possible transfers, Mbappe's filed transfer, and much more.

    Ep. 60 – 14th Time’s The Charm

    Ep. 60 – 14th Time’s The Charm

    They did it. Against all the odds and against all the permutations and analysis of football statisticians, #RealMadrid has taken home its 14th #UEFAChampionsLeague title.



    It's been a rollercoaster of a season for #Madridistas. It's probably been a rollercoaster of a season for Carlo Ancelotti who has been on the receiving end of ire and criticism throughout his now 2nd tenure at Real Madrid.



    Many Madridistas doubted that Casemiro, Toni Kroos, and Luka Modric could continue to deliver the same results they have for the past few seasons. Many wanted Vinicius Jr. to go out on loan. Benzema was also seen as a striker on his way out, and many were wondering how our defense would hold up after the exits of Sergio Ramos and Raphaël Varane.



    If you would have told Madridistas that THIS Real Madrid team was going to lift their 14th #UCL title and 35th La Liga title at the end of the season, they most likely would have told you that you were being way too optimistic.



    Most would have told you that La Liga was possible, maybe the Copa Del Rey, but the UCL was a bit of a longshot for most.



    But in the end, many Madridistas, the pundits, and the stats lovers…were wrong.



    This is a UCL campaign that will go down as legendary. It defied odds and expectations, but in the end, it also cemented the legacy of Real Madrid as a team that absolutely never gives up. That can never be thought of as being finished because just when you think they are defeated…they will snatch victory away from you and leave you wondering, "what just happened?"



    "What just happened?" That was something a lot of us said this season. In this episode, we talk about the UCL final, La Liga, and just the crazy joy that was Real Madrid's 2021-2022 season.

    Quick Take Vol. 1 | A YNM Short Audio Series

    Quick Take Vol. 1 | A YNM Short Audio Series

    This episode of Quick Take is a bit longer than our first one which was available exclusively on our social media channels - we really are trying to keep them short i.e 2 to 5 mins - but still not long enough to be considered a YNM podcast episode. And that’s for good reason…we honestly don’t think this whole Mbappé situation merits more than a quick rant. So here it is…our final thoughts on Mbappé’s decision and the drama surrounding it. From now on our focus is on the UCL final, as it should be!



    If we have a Quick Take episode that runs longer than 10 minutes, we will probably post it as an episode on our podcast feed. But to follow more Quick Takes follow us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook where these short videos will be posted. If they run a little bit longer than usual we will post them as episodes here on our YouTube Channel and our podcast feed.

    Ep. 59 – Thirty-Five

    Ep. 59 – Thirty-Five

    Real Madrid has done it. As we explain in this episode of the Y Nada Mas podcast, Real Madrid's 35th LaLiga title, didn't really come down to if they were going to win the title but when. Sevilla who had been chasing Real Madrid all season began to come apart as the season progressed.



    Barcelona, who was enjoying a good run of form under Xavi and had beaten Real Madrid 4-0 in El Clásico began to lose steam and also lose points. The consistency of Real Madrid after the loss to Barcelona and the loss of form of their direct rivals allowed Real Madrid to claim the LaLiga title with 4 games left in their domestic season.



    However, while Madridistas are no doubt elated by the 35th title win for Los Blancos, the second leg of the Champions League semi-final versus Manchester City looms large.



    The first leg gave football fans a seven-goal thriller that has become an instant classic. Both teams were able to score but both teams made grave mistakes. Manchester City came away with a one-goal advantage winning the game 4-3 at the Etihad but this is a Real Madrid that has been used to having their backs against the wall this season and is also used to the pressure and anxiety of Champions League nights. Manchester City will also now have to face Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu…which is without a doubt a place where Los Blancos seem to conjure up magic even when defeat looks certain.



    Will Real Madrid send the Citizens home? It will be difficult but not impossible. We feel that despite the 1-goal disadvantage…Real Madrid might be the team with the better chances to win. And not because they are necessarily the better football team but because this team seems to snatch wins from the jaws of defeat consistently and as Luka Modric says…"never gives up".

    Ep. 58 – The Comeback Kings & The Road To Fourteen

    Ep. 58 – The Comeback Kings & The Road To Fourteen

    A few weeks ago on Ep. 57 of the podcast, we were so angry at the 0-4 loss to Barcelona during El Clásico that we thought Real Madrid's season was slowly unraveling. We had just been humiliated once again by Barcelona, our most hated rival. It was a tough loss to swallow. It was yet another humiliation at the hands of Barcelona but this loss stung a bit more since it was once again at the Santiago Bernabeu but also because it was against a Barcelona that was and is rebuilding.



    But oh how quickly the tables turn in football. How quickly the narrative shifts. Since Real Madrid's loss to Barcelona Real Madrid has beaten Celta Vigo, Getafe, Sevilla, and Osasuna in La Liga and in the UCL played a masterful game at Stamford Bridge to defeat Chelsea in the 1st leg and then mounted an epic comeback once again in the 2nd leg to defeat Chelsea 5-4 on aggregate after Chelsea went 3-0 up at the Bernabeu.



    In La Lige, Sevilla also went 2-0 up in the Sanchez Pizjuan only for Real Madrid to once again mount a comeback and win the match 3-2. And while Real Madrid was calling its way back from defeat in multiple games, Barcelona and the "Xavineta" began to flounder.



    Xavi & Co. crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt and then lost important matches against Cádiz and Rayo Vallecano that have now left Real Madrid 1-point away from their 35th La Liga title.



    In this episode, we discuss Real Madrid's comebacks, their recent wins in La Liga, the importance of Valverde, the love/hate relationship Madridistas seem to have with Carlo Ancelotti, the upcoming match with Manchester City, transfer rumors, and more.



    We also discuss that unlike Barcelona's narrative about "style" and "DNA"...Real Madrid's "DNA" is less about style and more about winning. That this team's legacy is that its players put the team above everything else and understand that this team is about winning, first and foremost.

Just starting listen and love it!

I only starting following Real Madrid alittle over a year ago because my son wanted to watch soccer and I fell in love with it, the only podcast I’d listen to before this was Managing Madrid, I ran out of episodes so started looking around and I gave this podcast a try, and I really enjoyed the few episodes I listened to. You now have a loyal listener and get a wait to listen to more!
