I’m a Celebrity 2018: How much is former Tottenham, Portsmouth, QPR and West Ham boss Harry Redknapp being paid?

23 Nov

Harry Redknapp claims he didn’t have a clue what he was signing up for when he agreed to take part in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here 2018.

The former Tottenham, Portsmouth, West Ham and QPR manager insists he has never watched the ITV reality show before and is no fan of creepie-crawlies.

But he is proving a popular campmate, having told some hilarious tales, and is among the favourites to win the show.

Harry is becoming a favourite on the show

How much is Harry Redknapp being paid for I’m a Celebrity?

The 71-year-old is one the highest paid contestants. He is understood to be getting £500,000 for his appearance on the show, which will last a maximum of three weeks.

It was a record amount paid to a contestant on the show but has since been topped by Noel Edmonds, a late addition to the camp who is pocketing £600,000.

When is Football Manager 2019 released, how much is it, where can I buy it, when is the demo out and what are the new features?

11 Oct

FOOTBALL MANAGER 2019 is almost here as the 15th edition of the football fan favourite will hit the shelves better than ever.

With the release date closing in fast, find out where you can pick up a copy and what Sports Interactive and Sega have added for this year’s game…

You will be able to take a page out of Jurgen Klopp’s tactical book in the new edition of Football Manager

When is Football Manager 2019 released?

The latest edition will hit the stores on Friday, November 2.

FM19 will be released for Windows and MacOS operating systems.

It will be also available immediately on Nintendo Switch as well – last year’s game took six months before it came out on the small console.

Where can I buy Football Manager 2019 and how much is it?

High-street favourites GAME, Argos and Smyths are taking pre-orders for FM19.

Online retailers like Amazon, Zavvi and Very are also advertising the game ahead of its release next month.

While most shops want £39.99, you can pre-order from Amazon for just £34.99.

When is the FM19 demo out?

Last year, the demo was released on the same day as the full version.

It is expected that this will be the case for the new edition.

What are the new Football Manager features?

One of the first things that regular Football Manager players will notice is the lack of the ‘Manager Man’ on the front cover.

Like countries like Spain and Germany, you will be able to take a mid-season training camp.

Another big change is the introduction of VAR and goal-line technology with referees able to communicate to the fourth official via ear-piece or running over to them.

Tactics is a common theme in FM19, especially with the simulation basis of the game – but now you will be able to implement various tactical styles including Jurgen Klopp’s Gegenpress to the old-fashioned long ball.

The commentary will also be linked to the touchline team talks, whether that is what the manager has said at half-time or during play.

Contracts are also falling more in line with its real world counterparts, with players able to reject offers if they are denied work permits.

And finally, when you take over a new club, you will be wondering how they have gotten on so far in the season and previously you had little to go on.

Now pre-existing scout reports will be available for incoming managers, along with player match-ups ahead of your next fixture.
