    Yeah. Bergkamp was a wonderful footballer but Messi is simply on another level and it's not even close. What makes Messi really special is that for a decade he has been both the greatest goal scorer and the greatest creative player in the game. Can't think of another player who has been the best in the world at doing both.

    I think this the most important bit - Sterling was good last season but this season his all round game has gotten even better particularly on the decision making front. That's why the reluctance to include him in the bracket of players previously mentioned is a bit strange. Simply boiling it down to him having top class players around him does him a disservice. Players like Suarez, Kane, Hazard, Salah etc have quality players around them as well. It's as @polishgenius said, for some reason, many people seem reluctant to give Sterling the credit he deserves.

    We were including Sterling in the bracket of players like Salah, Neymar, Hazard, Kane and Suarez but just because these players could be considered to be in the same bracket, doesn't mean that some aren't still better than others. Sterling isn't a whole bracket above Salah (and that isn't what I meant in that post anyway) but I do consider him to be the better player overall.

    I have watched Liverpool. Firmino and Mane have been far more important than Salah. They both have similar numbers but Sterling has the better workrate and contributes more to his team outside of goal scoring so I consider him to be a better player than Salah. Not sure how this is holding Salah to a different standard.

    Because Sterling offers more than Salah outside of goal scoring. And, yes, Salah is having a down year. Both Firmino and Mane have been more integral than him. Replace this season's Salah with Shaqiri and you wouldn't notice a difference.

    I'd have Sterling over Salah tbh. While Salah was great last season, I find him to be a tad overrated. I'd have Sterling in the bracket of Hazard and current Suarez (Suarez in his prime was another level) and above Salah.
  7. The battle at Carleon where he lost his finger and earned his name probably occurred not too long after he joined up with Bethod. Prior to that, he was probably just referred to by his first name.

    Surely with what Sterling has produced (goals+assists) last season and this plus his great workrate, he should be considered to be up there with the likes of Salah/Hazard/Neymar/Suarez. As usual some players just don't get the full credit they deserve. Pretty sure if Sterling was Brazilian there'd be no question that he is currently among the best players in the world.

    Mobile phone advice (is this an entertainment topic?)

    That's not actually true though. Exynos is Samsung's own chipset and I think you will find that more often than not the software has been better optimised on the Exynos variant than it is on the Snapdragon variant. Prior to the Snapdragon 820, the Exynos chipset on Samsung devices were clearly superior. From the 820 onwards the differences in performance and battery life between the two chipsets are minimal. ETA. where Qualcomm does hold the advantage is in GPU performance. Adreno GPU in Qualcomm processors are better than Mali GPU in Exynos.

    I get very good battery life on my Note 8. I also disable apps that I don't use so those services aren't always running in the background. Facebook especially is a battery hog.

    Samsung software has improved massively in last couple of years. Back in the days of Touchwiz, Samsung devices tended to start lagging quite noticeably after a few months. I'm currently using a Note 8 running One UI and the phone is as snappy as ever. OnePlus devices are good value for money. Can't speak for the 6T but I did own a 3T. Oneplus devices are fast - up there with the most responsive android phones. However Oneplus screens, while good enough, aren't up there with the best displays like Samsung and the camera is definitely mid range. I've always been partial to Samsung devices - their hardware really is second to none. I'd probably compare prices of the Note 9 and 6T. Prices of Samsung phones tend to drop quite a bit a few months after release and especially when the new flagships come out. If you can get a Note 9 at a similar price to the 6T then it's a no brainer to choose the Note 9 even if it is a bit more expensive because you get a better display, much better camera, better build quality, much better after sales support, headphone jack, expandable storage, wireless charging, better speakers and a bigger battery.

    Romano reporting that Monchi has agreed to return to Sevilla.

    Sevilla have sacked Pablo Machin. Their form has dropped quite a lot from the first half of the season (8 points from their last 10 league games and now eliminated in the EL). The team looks fatigued - Sevilla don't have a big squad and have played 50 games already this season.
