It’s just not going well for Borussia Dortmund at the moment. BVB look almost certainties for an early Champions League exit at the hands of Tottenham and Real Madrid, and the Bundesliga gap to Bayern Munich stands at six points following a 3-1 Der Klassiker defeat on November 4.
Electronic Arts, publisher of the wildly successful FIFA series of video games, has been named the “worst company in America” on more than one occasion in recent years, an impressive feat in this country.

Danel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling played a game in which Sterling was made to guess which of Sturridge's traits was rated higher in FIFA 2018: pace, shooting or dribbling. Sterling narrowed it down to either pace or shooting, before finally guessing pace.

Leave it to video games to try to push forward a change in attitude toward tolerance and acceptance. Football Manager 2018, the latest installment of the preeminent soccer simulator, will feature openly gay players who come out over the course of the game.

In case you’ve been hiding under some sort of large pebble, FIFA 18 was released Friday, otherwise known as FIFA Friday. For many the launch date of EA Sports’ annual FIFA game is a personal holiday that comes before school/work, personal hygiene and familial obligations.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the game’s release.
It’s easy to make plans this weekend when you’ve got the newest FIFA to play. Plenty of you out there are more than willing to take a personal day to stay home to play FIFA on launch day. We salute you all.
