    Blimey. The FAQ on the website and the story on The Verge yesterday implied that they wouldn't work but I'm happy to have been wrong about this.

    If you're playing by Football Manager rules then it'd be Donarumma, Havertz and Sessegnon(s).

    How many of the "big" games has Coutinho missed since returning to the team? The only one I can think of is Everton and he came on as a sub in that match. It's a horribly arrogant way to phrase this but Klopp has rested Coutinho for games the club would have been expected to win without him. In the 50/50 games he was a nailed on starter.

    I think there are two possible explanations. 1.Firmino said something truly unacceptable. 2. Holgate misheard what Firmino said and thought that Firmino said something truly unacceptable. I'm hoping it's option two as the referee was right there so you'd assume he would have taken action if it was option one.

    Any chance they can get Peter Moore/John Henry to co-sign Atletico Madrid's complaint to FIFA? I know practically every club out there is guilty of tapping up but Real Madrid and Barcelona really are shameless. I think he'll go this summer, not in January.

    There was a release clause in his contract.

    This justifies my constant ranting and raving that a team losing by one should always send the keeper up for setpieces near the end of a match.

    I'd be shocked if Everton ever had the 6th highest wage bill during Moyes reign at the club. Villa, Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool, Man Utd and Chelsea would always have outspent them. Newcastle before Ashley arrived weren't shy of spending a few quid and then you have Man City's rise to a super power and various splurges at clubs like Portsmouth and QPR also outspending Everton at times. Looking back at the Guardians football finance round ups over the last few seasons has Everton's highest position in the wages table as ninth and I doubt they were ever much higher. Maybe they were eighth once but only briefly.

    If its based on the Gail Simone set of comics from a few years back it could be ok. I hope they don't include the being raped by a gang of bandits aspect of her backstory though. It doesn't add anything to the character in any of the comics I've read.

    I think Mercedes had the fastest car and they had the fastest driver. Hamilton had a five or six second advantage when Vettel first stopped and he still almost lost the lead because Mercedes kept him out there. By the time Vettel stopped again I think Hamilton was around 12 seconds ahead so they had ample time to pit Hamilton and let him cruise home to victory. I think one stop was a riskier strategy that they didn't need to take. In the case of Bottas I think he was three seconds behind Vettel each time Vettel pitted and was closing the gap each time. He was nowhere near Hamilton's level this weekend and has been very disappointing since the summer break but I think he had a good chance of being on the podium if they had pitted him sooner. He couldn't have finished any lower anyway.

    Mercedes got lucky yesterday. Considering they won the race and the constructors championship and all but wrapped up the drivers championship that obviously sounds like a daft thing to say but I found their strategy decisions yesterday to be utterly baffling. They almost let Vettel back in front after the first stop and then created unnecessary drama for themselves by not pitting Hamilton again when he had a comfortable cushion over Vettel. I think Bottas would have been on the podium if they had pitted him earlier.
  13. It's whatever Ken Levine has been working on. That's my guess. EDIT: Sorry I've gotten the PAXs mixed up and my guess was based on Jeff Gerstmann mentioning he saw a cool unannounced game at the most recent PAX. Based on the fact that PAX was in Seattle I'm changing my guess to this being a new game from Microsoft.

    Because a former champion occasionally doing punditry work is unheard of in sport. I get that you don't like Rosberg much (although you have seemed to have stopped calling him Britney which is progress) but calling him a hanger on because he does some punditry work is a stretch even by your standards. Moving on, that pole lap from Hamilton was just a little bit special.
