FC Baku is one of the football teams of the capital city of Azerbaijan. The club just chose the new manager: an unknow guy of 21 years of age. Vugar Guloglan Oglu Huseynzade has never trained a real team before, he was hired for his knowledge of Football Manager, the videogame.

Considering the fact that videogames nature is getting closer and closer to real nature, this makes sense from a next nature point of view, but I have to say this is still a brave decision for a football club. We will follow them in the next games. Go Baku!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
