    That new £150m might help them resist transfer fees but I'm not sure if that will allow Leicester to compete with the wage structure at top clubs. If I was Kante's agent, I would insist he refuse to sign a new contract if he wants a real significant pay increase. We don't know who will come calling... I'm sure it would be hard for someone like Mahrez to turn down Barcelona, who he has been linked with. This summer window sure will be interesting for Leicester.
  3. Really unusual color schemes (that work)

    Digging... I love this topic. Not sure if I've seen bright green+lighter-than-royal blue anywhere else. This one, simply because pink is strange for a home team, looks sharp with black. I hate to put an iconic look here but there is no other team that uses colours like these, especially separating all the pieces of the kit by colour. It's almost as if Brazil's yellow-green home jersey isn't iconic on its own... it's the combination of it with the blue shorts. I don't think there is any other identity like that in the world, at least I can't think of one. Not sure if this is in here already.

    They will also be lucky to keep Mahrez and Kante, especially the latter with his ~19 million pound release fee. N'Golo was so instrumental to their success, unheralded compared to Jamie and Riyad. Without either of those players, there is no way they could have won the PL this year let alone repeat. And yes, this is very hard to explain to North American sports fans. The situation in which this could happen simply does not exist in NA.
  5. Champions League of Hockey • Group D RESULTS (5/5)

    Just went through all of these. Djurgarden and Praha are my favourites. I would have to agree with @Totems!! on the point about Jokerit's move to black vs navy. Great work!

  8. What Are You Listening To?

    The new EITS album that this is on is fantastic.
  9. Really unusual color schemes (that work)

    Don't think green and yellow is all that unusual, but that specific shade of green definitely is. Also think black and brown work well together, for some odd reason.

  12. . or . : How Many Spaces After a Period?

    There are many other frequent problems which require revision and rewording in most people's writing than the use of an Oxford comma. And, why rely on good editing from subpar writers when a piece of punctuation serves the same purpose? Excessively using the word "of" is one I see all the time. He is a subject of the Queen vs He is the Queen's subject. If any component of your list includes the word "and", and you don't use the Oxford comma, the sentence is incredibly confusing... like musical duos Hall and Oates, Crosby and Nash and Simon and Garfunkel. It is obvious where the real "and" is because you are familiar with the subject of the sentence, but this is often not the case. Writing's ability to be communicative comes way before it's requirement to be technical or aesthetically pleasing.

    One space, Oxford commas. Oxford commas are advocated for in scientific writing and style guides, APA, MLA, Chicago, etc, which is the reason I use them.
