    Oh by crikey, playing in the Champions League is exhausting. My squad is permanently knackered.

    I’ve managed to get promoted every single season so far but only won one of them (and only just, on goal difference). So I thought I was going to struggle in my first Premier League season as my team had significantly lower stats than everyone else and I was only getting about ten thousand attendance at home games. Won it at a canter by a gap of thirteen points and did the FA cup double. Currently playing through my second season in the top flight and have just annihilated Porto away in my first Champions League game.

    Play players in the correct position and play them regularly. Pick a main formation and stick with it. Only keep players that fit in that formation and rotate them as much as you can. Keep your squad as small as you can so you don’t have loads of grumpy back-up players. I have a main formation that I play 95% of the time and a back-up formation that my players can switch too quite easily if the opposition flood the mid-field and I need to get a grip in the centre. Go into the squad info screen. Tap the drop down box at the top right and tap Concerns. You can then rank the players by a particular concern. Use training cards on the ones that have development concerns and renew contracts on players with less than 20 months left. Selling popular players and sacking members of staff also affects squad moral but you should do it regularly anyway to keep improving.

    I don't think I've ever lost my shit quite so spectacularly as when I saw that corner from Trent zipping towards Origi. Only just managed to calm down.

    Wireframe - a new gaming magazine (yes, on real paper)

    Yes, same here. I didn’t receive any notification that I was going to be billed another £20. And I’m receiving bucket loads of promotional emails. I’ve clicked through to the site and I can’t find any cancel subscription button/section either. Really not happy about it. I’m not claiming it’s anything underhand but it does look incompetent. My debit card runs out before the next sub will be due anyway so I’ll just leave it until the sub fails.

    The “thing” that Overkill and DB do before going on a dangerous mission. Fucking hell.

    Jonathon Wilson’s description of Jordan Henderson in the Guardian is amazing: https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/apr/15/jordan-henderson-liverpool-dogged-captain-centre-stage-title-race
  13. The Good Place (Netflix) Don’t watch/read any spoilers. The Tick (Amazon) Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle (iPlayer) And if you want something completely different, the new She-Ra on Netflix is surprisingly decent if you’re willing to accept that you are definitely not it’s target audience.
