La Decisionazo: Antoine Griezmann's Leaked Personal Diary for the 2018/19 Season
Antoine Griezmann is leaving Atletico Madrid, to go to...somewhere? 
We got an unmarked envelope at 90min Towers on Wednesday morning which appears to contain his innermost thoughts from the last 12 months. Since The Decision. 
We take no pleasure in revealing the envelopes contents. But the people deserve to know. 

14th June 2018
Did The Decision today. Needed something to take my mind off playing with these snail-munchers instead of my pals at the World Cup for the next month – really think FIFA need to have another look at their rules. 
​Ousmane and that Umtiti lad keep giving me funny looks around the camp though. Cant tell if its because I just made an entire documentary to par off their club or if they didnt think my apology for the Globetrotters thing was enough. Guess Ill never know. Refuse to speak French. 
p.s. Still waiting to hear from Uruguay citizenship office. Will chase again tomorrow.

15th July 2018

Won the World Cup today. The frog-gobblers are all loving it, but I just feel empty. It is not the time for posts. I told Juan Mata that. He scribbled it in a notebook. Odd lad. I like his name though, it reminds me of mate, which I bloody love, of course.

6th August 2018
Back with my mate mates today, its been such a long summer. I love drinking small amounts of bitter leaf juice with my Uruguayan kin, its the only reason made The Decision to stay here in the summer. ​Luis Suarez...he doesnt appreciate me in the same way that they do. 
"Hes not Uruguayan, hes French and he scored a goal. He doesnt know what we have to do to succeed in football. He will have his customs and his Uruguayan way of speaking, but we feel differently."
Dickhead.

19th November 2018

Wow, long time no speak! Had to play against the homeland again today, and it was really hard. I put a Uruguayan flag on my boots, but people just laughed at me. Diego and Jose werent even in their squad, I just felt so alone. Sometimes I think they dont even believe Im really one of them. 
Had a chat with Luis after the game though. Cleared the air a bit, turns out we have a lot in common – he says he was called racist for doing something thats accepted in our culture too! Lots to think about.

28th January 2019

This season is going great! Through in the ​Champions League, second in the league and not far behind ​Barça! Ive scored eight in eight! Im getting a little bit worried that Diego (the good one, not the feral one) hasnt signed his new contract yet though. Im going to start leaving pens in his kitbag so hes always ready, I think.

3rd February 2019

Spoke too soon. Lost to Betis. Will go home and genuflect to my single lock of Diego Forlans hair. 

9th February 2019

Lost to Real. Need to step it up. Time to put on my signed and match-worn Álvaro Recoba pants until we win again. 
20th February 2019
Okay, calma. Jose and Diego (the two Gs, or my Gs) scored against Juve, were going to boss the Champions League, Im feeling a lot better about this now. 
Suarez keeps texting me to complain about Philippe Coutinho lately – Ohhh he takes loads of stupid shots so we dont give him the ball now, and then he runs into the middle and gets in my and Leos way – but I told him exactly what I tell people about Filipe. You cant trust people from a country who speak Portuguese when everyone around them speaks Spanish! 
He said Ive given him a lot to think about, but Im not sure he was convinced.

12th March 2019

Ronaldo knocked us out AGAIN? Screw this stupid club. 

27th March 2019

Lucas signed for Bayern today. Absolutely no flair – he let them announce it themselves with some written statement on their website. I bet he doesnt even have a documentary filmmakers phone number. 
He had made things a bit awkward for me now though. Hes off, Juanfrans off, Diegos stopped speaking to me (again, the good one, not the one who only eats raw meat and---wait, thats both of them. I mean not the one who looks like his face was carved out of the side of Cerro Catedral----thats both of them too. The one who doesnt flinch at Antonio Contes name! Thats the one) and hes always with Jose, so I cant talk to him either. 
Im starting to feel a little bit alone here. Im spending most of my time in my room videoing new celebrations to send to my new pal Luis. He says hes really worried about the chance of playing Liverpool in the Champions League because Coutinho is – and I quote – about as constitutionally strong as a wet sheet of tissue. Im sure theyll be fine.

6th April 2019

Fake Spaniard got sent off against Barça today. Hate this place. 
Cant even summon the energy to ring the Uruguay citizenship office. Ill give them a buzz next week. 

14th May 2019
Alright. Its time. Diegos abandoning me, Luis is begging me to come and replace that tiny idiot waste of air, Juanfrans gone, Lucas has gone, Ive had it. Im done. I havent showered in five days and my hair looks like I just came off the island off Castaway (love Tom Hanks), but I cant take it any more.
Apparently everyones at Cannes and too busy. France ruins everything again. Get my tripod. 
Ive made my Decision.
