Kanye dropped his new album Ye recently, it's quite short at only 23 minutes. It feels like Kanye is on the decline, don't get me wrong, I prefer this album to his last two and it is good but that's all it is.

Is it because they got a pasting in Marseille or is it because the Russian authorities won't tolerate any unruly behaviour?

Nobody can argue he's impressed since he became the Belgian coach. Question is will they be able to keep him if they have a successful World Cup. They've already signed him up for the Euros 2020.
