Mourinho replacement: How would each candidate fit the Man Utd way?

Jose Mourinho is under pressure. Recent reports suggested his time as Manchester United manager was to end following the team's Premier League clash with Newcastle, though a spectacular comeback from two goals down gave him a crucial 3-2 win and some respite. While the speculation over his future has quietened for the time being, it's difficult to see him rectifying the situation well enough to secure a long-term stay at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are used to winning, and winning in style. Mourinho has, for the most part, delivered the former, but has failed to create a cohesive and attractive identity during his time in charge. And, after over two years at the helm, there is an increasing chance he may never establish a style of play in line with the club's history, stature and supporter's demands.

Super Mario: Absolutely everything on the sequel to Odyssey and Galaxy – Nintendo Switch, Wii U, release date and more

Dream Team FC
Super Mario: Absolutely everything on the sequel to Odyssey and Galaxy – Nintendo Switch, Wii U, release date and more

There has been a lot of talk from Nintendo fans as to when the next 3D Mario adventure will be announced.

We have pulled together all of the known information as well as rumours and speculation on the sequel to both Super Mario Odyssey and Galaxy 2.

We will be updating the page regularly so stay posted!

We could be seeing a Super Mario Odyssey sequel soon

Both of the Nintendo Switch’s biggest titles so far have been hugely successful and have had extremely positive reviews.

By extremely positive we really mean this.

Both the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey have a Metacritic score of 97.

Likewise, both Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 hold a score of 97.

Both Super Mario Galaxy games are amongst the highest rated of all time

This puts all four games within the brackets of the top ten games of all time.

This can mount to a lot of pressure when working on a sequel.

With such a beloved franchise like Mario, mistakes can’t be made.

Fans want to see the return of more OG enemies

Why a sequel is likely

Nintendo has not yet fallen into the triple-A trap of releasing a new game every year.

It was always a concern for fans that Nintendo may go down the route of Call of Duty, Assasins Creed and sports titles like FIFA and NBA2K.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 however, was released three years following the first edition to raving reviews and commercial success.

Since then all we have had is Odyssey.

It is well known that Nintendo will not release a game until they have sufficient good ideas for the title.

Our money is with the majority of Mario fans on their 100% being a sequel in the works.

So many characters!

Some new faces and some old ones

The introduction of Cappy into Odyssey bodes well for the revitalisation of the series, with such a well-loved character it would be a sin not to reprise the spritely hat companion in a sequel to the game.

Likewise, the overall lack of classic Super-Mario enemies in the title made fans of the series almost certain that there would be a sequel with these well-loved baddies that we have got used to.

The new Yoshi game arrives in 2019

Could the next game be a much smaller title?

The last side-scrolling 2D Mario game was released in 2015 for IOS and Android.

Super Mario Run went down pretty well with fans and Nintendo don’t mind milking the successful side-scrolling format that Mario games originated from.

The next title for the Switch could very easily be in this format and not the 3D Mario fans adore.

Also, as Super Mario Odyssey was nor ported for the Wii U we can excpect to see no further sequels being released on the dated platform.

Another instalment of the side-scrolling Mario could disappoint some fans

What other information should we know?

Since Super Mario Odyssey we have only Mario Tennis Ace, however, there is a new side-scrolling Yoshi title that is coming out in 2019.

As Yoshi was not prominently featured in Super Mario Odyssey, we would expect him to have a bigger cameo in a sequel.

If the quirky dinosaur is getting his own stand-alone game in 2019 though, this may ruin that idea.

Fortnite season 7: Everything we know about Season 7 – map updates, weapons, battle pass, skins and much more

Dream Team FC
Fortnite season 7: Everything we know about Season 7 – map updates, weapons, battle pass, skins and much more

Season 6 of Fortnite has just got underway.

With Loot Lake now on the move, it seems as though the Season is going to be full of action

Season 7 may seem a long way off but with it being October, Christmas (and the next season) are just around the corner.

We’ve pulled together everything you need to know about the game – from hints and tips to more general gameplay-related stuff and big announcements.

Treat this as your own personal Fortnite Season 7 ‘hub’ – we’ll be updating it daily, so you’ll always be in the know.

Let’s kick off with the basics.

Image result for fortnite season 6

When is Season 7 landing?

The date for the end of Season 6 is currently set for December 5th 2018, meaning the next season of Fortnite will take place just prior to Christmas.

I think we can all guess what the theme might focus on.

Rumoured themes?

The theme of which, ‘Dark Rising’, is heavily inspired by Halloween and ominous creepy things that jump out of the dark.

This isn’t the first time that EPIC Games have opted to introduce seasonal aspects to Seasons within Fortnite.

Image result for fortnite christmas

This time last year Fortnite introduced the Skull Trooper and Ghoul Trooper skins as part of the seasonal Halloween theme.

They also adapted the RPG in-game to propel pumpkins instead of rockets.

When Christmas came around, they introduced new seasonal skins as well as Christmas trees dotted around the map.

Image result for fortnite halloween skins

What will the theme of Season 7 be?

Although we can’t say for certain, the theme will most likely be X-mas themed with a number of skins, map changes, and maybe even appearance from St. Nick himself…

The Map has, to this date, not been affected by snow.

Image result for fortnite snow mapSave the World mode has previously made use of snow

However, we saw how, at the start of Season 5 a whole new biome could be added to the game, changing up gameplay dramatically.

EPIC games will need to do something big to top Season 6, as it’s already 10x more impressive than Season 5 ever was.

Season 7 of Fortnite will start in the first week of December

If there’s one thing we know about Epic Games, it’s that they LOVE a seasonal event

One thing we can almost guarantee to fans of Fortnite is that EPIC will be running Christmas themed event’s throughout the entirety of Season 7.

We can expect to see snow, skins and potentially the whole theme to be surrounding by X-mas magic.

The return of the snowball launcher

The iconic snowball launcher was a staple in Fortnite last Christmas season.

With the recent introduction of the chiller traps, it would be good to see some more weapons featured that perform ‘cold’ damage.

Rumours have even been circulating that a drastic change to the storm could occur.

Turning the, currently purple, storm blue creating a snowstorm that slows enemies when they got stuck in it.

Gifting system in the Season of giving

A feature which has been eagerly requested for almost a year now is a gifting system.

Players are keen to gift their skins to friends in what could resemble an effective trading system.

It is possible that EPIC games could add this feature during Season 6, but would make more sense for it to be added at Christmas when they would be set to make more money.

We have been waiting for more vehicles since the introduction of trolleys and ATKs into Fortnite.

The introduction of vehicles to the popular battle royale game has been widely seen as a good thing.

First trolleys in Season 4 and then ATK golf buggies in Season 5.

We can expect to see the addition of one or two new vehicles in Season 7 or sooner.

Here are the most likely contenders.

Image result for fortnite season 6

The Hoverboard

A few months back rumours and leaks showed that the hoverboard was 100% coming to Fortnite’s battle royale mode.

However, this turned out to be fake with the unique item being introduced into the ‘save the world’ mode instead.

It wouldn’t be too hard for Epic games to copy the code across and add the hoverboard into Fortnite Season 7.

It would most likely be featured similarly to the in-game jetpack item.

The ability to move fast and jump high would help to get those DUBS

All aboard 

Due to some players looking through the code in future patch notes they uncovered that there may be more water areas coming to the Fortnite map.

This has led players to believe that later in season 7 there could be a great flood taking over portions of the map, especially now that Loot Lake has been corrupted.

The Chomp Sr. outfit with matching pickaxe

This could lead to new vehicles in the form of boats, and the opportunity for some more brilliant skins.

It has also been found that the skins from previous seasons often hint at what is coming next.

There were a load of water-themed skins released throughout Season 5, so it will be interesting to see if the theme continues throughout Season 6 and into Season 7.

Boats could come in all shapes and sizes so it will be interesting to see if this becomes a feature in Season 7.

Santa’s Sleigh

Although technically not a vehicle you will be able to control, the rumoured ‘Christmas’ theme for Season 7 has set tounges wagging about how exactly the map could be affected.

It would be great to see the Battle Bus being pulled along my Santa’s reindeer, or a reskin on the ATKs that will lend an x-massy feel to them.

What is Fortnite?

In September 2017, a new standalone mode called Battle Royale was launched – which brought the game into direct competition with PUBG – another battle royal-style shooter.

Then on March 12th 2018, Epic released the IOS version of Fortnite.

Each game sees 100 players plonked on to a map with no weapons or armour – you need to scavenge and explore to find these.

Similar to PUBG there is a ‘closing in’ mechanic – which sees the game area get smaller and smaller.

Venture outside the safe zone (a ‘storm’ in Fortnite’s case) and you’ll lose health rapidly, before being eliminated.

Fortnite can be played solo or with friends on mobile, Xbox, Switch, PS4 and PC.

Word to the uninitiated – if you’re playing solo, do not try to team up – you’ll get killed.

How much does Fortnite cost?

It’s free – unless you’re mad about cosmetics (which some people clearly are).

Skins can be obtained through the battle pass or you can buy V-bucks and spend them in the store

What games systems is Fortnite currently on?

It’s on Xbox, PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch and IOS.

When is the game coming to Android?

With 1000’s of people already playing Fortnite on IOS, there is a huge demand for the game to come over to Android.

Epic games are currently working to release the game in China where the majority of people use Androids.

The release date is rumoured to be 24th July so keep your eyes peeled.

Season 5 map

The addition of golf kart’s to the map was perhaps the biggest gameplay development this season.

Allowing you to travel faster and race your friends on the new track that rivals Monaco’s.

Portals are also dotted around the map which allow you to re-drop from the sky, giving you more time to loot and still get away from the storm.

There are no other maps (yet), which will frustrate some, but developers Epic continue to add to their existing map with locations such as Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

The map has changed drastically this season with a whole new biome and different attractions scattered around

Where’s the worst place to land on Fortnite?

It all depends on your ability. Tilted Towers can be the best place if you’re experienced or worst place if you’re a noob.

It’s usually teeming with loot and powerful weapons – but most decent players will swarm on it pretty sharpish.

If you’re new to the game, head for Snobby Shores or Lonely Lodge – they’re a bit further out so they’ll be less competition for decent loot.

Best weapons for mobile players?

On Fortnite the colour of the weapon indicates how good it is.

With the new update, the best way for smartphone players to win is to take the sneaky approach.

The silenced SMG has had a big upgrade in terms of damage and accuracy so make sure to rock one of these when sneaking up on people.

Pair the tactical shotgun with the silenced SMG and you have a winner.

If you come across a sniper it may be worth practising as it will give you a real advantage over other players.

The best weapons are found in loot crates – so keep an eye out for these.

Fancy a gold scar? Look out for supply drops

How to build as a mobile player?

Defensively.

It’s always best to build a small fort three stories high in the zone.

This way you can have a clear view of all the battles going on around you and will let you pick off opponents with your assault rifle or sniper.

If you want to get better at building you have to practice.

Hop into a game, head to wailing woods, collect some wood and just build up and down.

Practice switching between weapons and different types of materials, then when you get into a battle you will likely win!

One by ones are the ultimate form of defence

Is Fortnite a good experience on smartphones?

It’s so good that some teachers are complaining they’re ruining lessons – with schoolkids playing the game instead of studying.

Epic’s Fortnite is showing no signs of slowing down – so expect more content and bigger announcements coming down the pipe.

Why bother getting Fortnite on my phone?

It’s easy to pick up and play for an hour or on your lunch break or on the train, anywhere with an internet connection – plus, it’s free.

Fortnite is all about action – and the fun construction element really helps add a new dimension to battles.
