Hello Rank Squad!
The domestic season is pretty much all done in Europe, and we’re here to take a look back. Originally this was supposed to be a Ballon d’Or ranking, but Karim Benzema has rendered that a little bit pointless, so we’re mixing it up. We talk about the big man, of course, who powered Real Madrid to a La Liga & Champions League double, but also his contemporaries.
From KDB’s immense second-half season surge to Kylian Mbappé’s remarkable run across this year (and his desire to stay in Paris); to Rafael Leão’s personal mission to take Milan to the Scudetto Crown, and Robert Lewandowski’s stunning goalscoring season, and where he goes next in his career, we’ve covered it all.
There’s also Things We Love, where Sam talks about early transfer business, Dean discusses Nottingham Forest’s return to the Premier League, and Jack talks about Ranks being there as Roma lifted the first ever UEFA Europa Conference League trophy.
There’s a discussion of the ugly scenes at Saint-Étienne after they were relegated in Melon of the Week, and Sam’s Gibberish is focused on spending a week with Jack and the little ruts that entails. It’s Ranks!
