Yeah, that’s right. You all get stuck with me writing a Hoddle this morning. This was completely by accident, too. I finished my review of FIFA 17 last night around 10:45 PM ET, just a little over an hour before the embargo lifted. I figured I could at least ask Menno if I could include a direct link to the review for some shameless self-promotion, but it turns out that just about everyone was asleep by 11 PM.

Figuring that I’ve done dumber things on this site, I would just casually add it to the end of the Hoddle and call it a night or at least hit a bar to unwind.

Turns out there was no Hoddle written.

I won’t tell you whether or not you should shame Jake for this, but......

Anyways, this is your Hoddle and it’s impromptu as ever. Here are some links, including my aforementioned self-promotion I talked about earlier!

....please don’t fire me, Menno.

And now the “news”....

Speaking of FIFA, I remember always signing Jack Grealish in FIFA 15 and he would peter out at like 75 overall. Maybe the partying carried over into video games?

Sweet baby Jesus, these draws are great. There’s still going to be rotation, though. I’d love to see our youth head up to Anfield and beat Pool just to show off the depth of the club.

That’s it from me! Enjoy your Thursday.
