  1. LM10 : I was having the same feeling about Enganche and Cox although I respect them as bloggers. But when I saw Siddique’s aka Romance king latest comment about Barco and his wife, I understood that Romance king is not going to change.
    I haven’t seen anyone so shameless in my life. I hope he grows some brain and deletes his own account without having Roy to kick him out.

  2. When Messi and DiMaria hang up their boots for the national team, There is little doubt DePaul should be the next Captain followed closely by Dibu. Rodri takes wear his heart on his sleeve and gives everything he has for the shirt, Love this guy!

  3. Can’t imagine this team without dePaul now. Oh well, good opportunity to see other players. I am hoping McAlister impresses this time around. He didn’t do anything for us in his last showing if I remember correctly.

      • my friend leave him alone. i am sure boss watching and if again he will start about the wifes of players or bed staff he will kick him out again as usual.

      • Enganche Cox please go easy on romance king…..Of course you guys can scold him if you have noticed something seriously bad about him……But other than that it looks like you guys keep making hateful comments towards him for no reason…

        • Not so friend, the reason he wants Barco called up is because of his wife. It’s almost never about football with that dude, it’s about his unfulfilled sexual fantasies. This blog should not be about that.

        • i know romance king since 2018. i try so many times to speak to him with good way to keep out his obsesion out of mundo. i supported him years before when EVERYBODY was against him. old friends that unfortunately left here like Ebo and others can sure you my countless attempts to make him act with logic. i waste so much time for him. Even around 10 days before i try 1 last time. Again the same. Anymore i finish with him. He will have the behave he deserves from me.
          in mundo old articles from MAY of 2018 in comments you can find everything. all the evidence you need that i am not lie. you can see who is romance king and why me and some friends we are against him. thank God the written remains.

          • I think he continually comment like that bcz he wants attention either it’s good or bad way & he chosen the 2nd one.. Every time he write something & we discuss about that & he fell happiness bcz we all discuss about him. Every time he change his name and comment like that we instantly recognize that it is him
            So i think we should leave him alone. Don’t read his comment like me.he never comment about Our NT he only comment about Icardi & someone’s wife bla bla. It’s just my thought ok bro, don’t think I’m against you @cox4, i just want to see Argentina NT related (also local league rising stars )comments from all of us so we can know something about our beloved NT.
            Sorry for my English 😁if i mistake something ☺🇮🇳🇦🇷
