Those of you still lost in the whirlwind of Christmas will be glad to know Codemasters Online Gaming has fixed issues with Sensible World of Soccer on Xbox Live.
It actually remedied problems before Santa squeezed his way down our chimneys, but Tom had already toddled off to wrap his presents in mince pies and sing his way to the bottom of a bottle of wine by then.
If you have the old version that helpfully disconnected you from Live after installation, you should delete it from your hard drive and download the new game - this won't incur any extra charges.
Oh, and happy new year from everyone at Eurogamer. Which is to say "Tom and I", because everyone else will stumble in at about 9.30.
