Good morning, everyone! Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Hey, Jobe?

Jude Bellingham has been the signing of the season for Borussia Dortmund. Despite his tender age of 17, his aggression, vision, and calmness are years ahead of many of his older, more experienced teammates. If only there was some way that we could clone Jude, or find some kind of... other version of him that we could also sign. But alas, that boy is our only hope.

No... there is another.

Apparently Bellingham Inc. is in development of their latest model: the Jobe.™ Unlike his brother Jude, the central midfielder, Jobe is a right winger. He’s only 15, so he hasn’t yet appeared against senior players, but he’s apparently been making some noise with the Birmingham City youth academy and the England U15s.

Edin Terzic was asked about Jobe and he gave a pretty non committal answer, but Jude seemed much more enthusiastic when he was asked. In addition to expressing excitement at Jude arriving, he also achieved legendary Borusse status by bantering Schalke:

That would be a dream for me. I hope he continues to improve as a boy and a player. I don’t want to put any pressure on him - but he definitely won’t go to Schalke.

Bodied.

Obviously, Jobe still needs some time to develop before he’s ready to play at the senior level, let alone for Dortmund. What warms my heart is that Jude seems excited at the possibility of him coming to BVB as well, because it means that Jude likes the club and thinks it would be a good environment. Hopefully we’ll be able to see these two in black and yellow on the pitch one day.

Barcelona Win the Women’s Champions League

Congratulations to Barcelona, who have become the first club to win both the Men’s and Women’s Champions League final! Barca have been insanely dominant in La Liga this season, winning every single match and outscoring their opponents 128-5. They put Chelsea to the sword today, scoring four goals in the first half, starting with an own goal in the first minute, to cruise to an easy victory.

A Familiar Face

Here’s a blast from the past. Julian Weigl (who, fun fact, is still the only BVB player whose kit I have) was named Benfica’s player of the year.

The Daily Buzz

Speaking of that Julian Weigl kit, I think it’s getting close to the time that I need to buy another. Which name should I choose for the next shirt I buy?
