Posted in: Real Madrid sign Kubo from FC Tokyo See in context

A bad career move.

Real Madrid don’t buy young players with potential, they buy established players with proven quality.

Kubo was bought as a way for Madrid to sell shirts & TV rights to pay for their big stars.

But I’d love to be proven wrong.

when the USA women’s team are winning, they’re over the top with their celebrations, regardless of the opposition.

when they are losing, they are renowned dummy-spitters & cry babies.

Hopefully Somebody will beat them & send them packing.

Posted in: Man City target landmark treble as UEFA probe looms See in context

Let’s not go overboard on the accolades.

Man City are owned by one of the richest men in the world, have spent more on players than any club in the world (except PSG), & have brought in the best manager in the world.

They were Neville Nobodies before Mansour came with his bottomless pit of money.

Once Guardiola leaves, watch for the trophies to dry up.

Source - Forbes magazine.

The Japanese public debt exceeded one quadrillion yen or about US$10.46 trillion in 2013, more than twice the country's annual gross domestic product. By 2015, the figure rose to US$11.06 trillion.

Japan is the most indebted country in the world, carrying a substantial debt roughly 233% of GDP on its shoulders.

The ‘runner-up’ is Greece with 177%, which is still relatively small in comparison
