On top of the fact he's potentially a great player he was also homegrown which helps tremendously for EPL and Champions League spots.
Bamford, Brown and Solanke are going to be good players but none of them have Lukaku's physical attributes. ...

I agree, I don't really get it either.
I know he's still a bit raw but he's got a lot of potential and he idolized Drogba. Let him play behind Drogba for a year and then make Didier striker coach and turn the kid into something great.
Costa better damn well come good. I like him and I believ...

I grew up a Tulane fan, Culture 48-Agriculture 7 was pretty great for me and Reggie Regginelli just rolls off the tongue. But once Vegas Vince Gibson took over it seemed to turn into a joke pretty quickly.
Don't get me wrong Tulane was never a power and we got our butts kicked pretty often but i...

I was stuck in the Crown Room (Atlanta Frequent Flyer Lounge) during the Champions League final between Chelsea and Man U.
I didn't know anything about soccer and wound up watching it with a full room of people and the atmosphere was amazing.
I talked to the guy next to me about the teams an...

I don't think they are drawing any kind of line. Instead they are pointing out what's 'wrong' with politics in general. ...

I haven't ben overly impressed by Vox so far but this is an interesting article.

I would wait for at least a couple of patches. The game is never great on release date and each patch released generally bring big changes to the match engine so formations and tactics that worked for you are suddenly nerfed pretty badly.
I usually wait until it drops to half price and pick it u...

What do you think the reason is, then? I love Deuce and the giant head cracks me up every time but realistically he just doesn't fit in very well with the team that Spurs have.
AVB prizes athleticism, and speed, speed, speed. He loves the high line, pressing up the pitch and wants to attack a la...

According to this site, he's coming back to the US not to return to MLS but to hold talks with Everton. I think Everton would be a good fit for Duece; he's just not athletic enough for Spurs.

The idea of subsidizing phone access began under Reagan when AT&T broke up in 1984. The act expanded and formalized in 1996, Clinton. The cell portion was started by Bush in 2008.

This is a tremendous game and has eaten up thousands of my (non) work hours. It's fairly complex and easy to e overwhelmed though.
I'd check out this site and other FM forums, of which there are a lot, for tips/tricks. It should ease the learning curve.
