This week's Game of Thrones: a booze-fest – and the most moving episode yet

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

Once that dust has settled, we might look back on this episode as the last night of the old Game of Thrones and, like Tyrion urging his companions to stay for one last drink, wish we could have made it last a little longer.

Episode two of the final season of Game of Thrones was called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, a grand and unusually courtly title for a drama defined by political opportunism and devious backstabbing.

Is there a single Manchester United player the fans would be sad to lose?

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

There could have been little pleasure for Liverpool fans in watching Manchester United being gubbed by their Everton on Sunday, just a desperate hope that there will be a reaction, that the shame of such a limp performance will somehow inspire them against Manchester City on Wednesday.

Other than Marcus Rashford, although even he has been misfiring recently, is there a single player United fans would really be disappointed to lose?

Juventus's muted title celebrations an acknowledgment of work to be done

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

Since beating Juventus, the Grifone have taken one point from five games – and more worryingly scored just a single goal.

His six combined Serie A titles between Juventus and Milan place him second only now to Giovanni Trapattoni – who claimed seven with Juventus and Inter – yet there has been increasingly vocal dissent towards his leadership from a section of the fanbase. Andrea Agnelli insisted in the aftermath of defeat against Ajax that he was sticking by the manager regardless.

'Empty Spain': government urged to act as towns fade from map

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

Just over an hour’s drive from Madrid, well beyond the industrial estates and retail parks that orbit the Spanish capital and off a main road that climbs and falls with ear-popping regularity, lies a small town that is slowly fading from the map.

After clinging to a hilltop in Castilla-La Mancha for 500 years, Sayatón, like most tiny rural Spanish towns, is suffering the slow, steady ravages of depopulation, a phenomenon that threatens more than half of the country’s surface area.

Brace for unpredictable markets after a decade of ‘extreme and unusual policies’

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

“Today’s market has been shaped by extreme and unusual policies over a decade,” Brink wrote in a recent note co-wrote by AB portfolio manager Walt Czaicki.

In other words, the gaudy returns of the past decade weren’t driven by economic or corporate growth, but by a flood of cheap and easy money. “And with so much money sloshing around the markets, downturns were mild and usually corrected themselves quickly.”

Gold moves up from low of the year, tracking higher oil and weaker stocks

Tuesday 10:50 GMT

Gold prices pushed up from the four-month low reached in recent sessions, in part as oil gains lifted the specter of inflation risk, against which gold can act as a hedge, and as stock futures pointed to a lower start for riskier assets.

Oil prices surged on Monday amid reports the U.S. will announce the end of waivers for countries to import Iranian oil, as part of a bid by the Trump administration to push Iran’s exports to zero.
