Adi-Oula Sebastian

Sabotaging since 3 Mar 2012

Left-leaning capitalist who moonlights as a writer when time allows it. Born and raised in Germany, he’s actually Indonesian. Adding to the general confusion he prefers to write in English. Splitting his time between Germany and Indonesia, he can also occasionally be found in Barcelona. He even managed to contribute a few lines to a CNN story, and ran the popular SB Nation blog, Barca Blaugranes, as the Editor-in-Chief for a while. Hobbies are rumored to include: watching other people do sports amongst other things. He mainly writes about football with the odd article about politics or economics. Outside of his contributions for The Sabotage Times he regularly writes for www.SoccerLens.com. He has also written for www.TheHardTackle.com, www.ManagingMadrid.com and www.FunGuideToFootballCulture.com among other outlets. On match days he can be found ranting on Twitter: @JubeiKibagame.
