He Was One Of The Best Players In The World. Now He's One Of The Best Executives

Mario Gotze Says He Wants More Attention, Casts Doubt Over Future At Bayern

Mario Gotze has turned into one of the most disappointing players on Bayern Munich’s roster for fans. He has struggled to consistently perform and his attitude on the pitch has suffered accordingly.

Xabi Alonso Starts To Disappear On The Pitch. Literally.

We always suspected something was up with Xabi Alonso. His passing was too good; his vision is too good for a normal human.

And now we see that we were correct in our assumptions, with this Vine as proof: Xabi Alonso is a ghost.

His pinpoint lobs are so precise because other ghosts are carrying them to their destinations. The truth has come out.
