Jose Mourinho was on talksport recently, and one of the topics he discussed was Eden Hazard. And he confirmed what some have always suspected about Hazard’s work ethic in training being poor. Here’s a quote:

Basically saying that Eden is 100% talent and little to no work, and that if he approached training with a better attitude, he’d be even better than he is now. You can say Mourinho may be stirring the pot, but hazard does have a long history of turning up to practice overweight. Reports are already coming out that Hazard wants to leave, despite hazard saying that he wont leave us a failure.


My guess, and i’ve been saying it all season is that he’ll be a PSG player very soon. I could be wrong but my gut instincts lead me to PSG. He’s already reportedly been offered to them per AS. Recently, Ronaldinho tried to get cheeky with Ramos on twitter, but El Capitan showed he’s the comeback king. And aint ronaldinho still in jail? tweeting mad.


I was going to link an article about us and barca’s decline of influence on the spanish national team by The Athletic. But you need to create an account to read it. I wasn’t up for the task, i’ve failed you.


Eder Militao is having a fantastic copa america. He’s now one of brazil’s starting CB’s and rightfully so. I will say it again, The Militao Militia Movement has already begun and it ain’t stopping.


So we have a new richest man in the world. Bernard Arnault, the owner of damn near every designer and luxury brand you know of. He’s now worth $186.3 billion dollars. 300 million more than Jeff Bezos. He’s french by the way, so if France win the euros, maybe they can all ask for some Luis Vuitton, Dior, Fendy & Givenchy accessories for their efforts.


In a pandemic world, people still want to go outside and travel. For those of you that get around nations. Here’s a nice list of some powerful infinity stone passports you might want to acquire in your lifetime. The Japanese passport is the highest on the list, able to access 190 countries, and those guys don’t often go out of the country. And in case you’re wondering how many people there are in the world, here’s your numbers by the age group. Young people make up 33% of the world’s population, these numbers have been counted from the 1950’s till now. That means there’s a lot of old people.
