Dia de impuestos

¡Que dia triste, por favor! ¿Es justo que gobiernos te sacan 50% de lo que ganas?

Pero tampoco el parte peor. Todos los papeles que se obligan. ¡terrible! y tambíen que los impuestos tienen una estructura tan mala, porque tarda el crecimiento económico.

I don't watch the Belgian Jupiler League often...

but I might have to try to check out this afternoon's game for Anderlecht v KV Kortrijk. This 16 year old kid Romelu Lukaku is playing for Anderlecht, and if reports are to be believed, he is like Didier Drogba but with more athleticism and football skill.

Yeah. Crazy. This kid could be the alltime great if he keeps working hard. Pretty tough to do that when you're only 16, but...

Ribery to pick

France winger Franck Ribery has said that will choose his future in the next 10 days: stay at Bayern, or Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona.

I don't think he's going to get Cristiano Ronaldo money. Close maybe, but not equal. So unless Chelsea offers to make him number 1 of all time, I think Chelsea can be struck from the list.

My wholly uninformed guess is something like 70% Real Madrid, 18% Bayern, 12% Barcelona.

Rafa Benitez to Juventus?

Juventus claim to be 90% confident of picking up Rafael Benitez. But the Spaniard is also pretty heavily talked about for the not-yet-vacant tecnico spot at Real Madrid. Everyone assumes that chilean Manuel Pellegrini will get the ax after 250 million euros in spending and no championships, even if it was only a year.

Juventus is historically a big club. The scandal a few years back obviously hurt, but Juve have reportedly offered Benitez 10 days to decide if he wants to join them and their 70 million euro transfer budget.

So Benitez is in a funny place: he might get fired after this season at Liverpool anyway. He could rebuff Juve now and hope for Madrid (or Chelsea or Inter etc). He could hope to stick it out with Liverpool. We'll see. Right now I'm tempted to think that he heads to Juventus...but the relative blahness of Italian football may keep him out.
