  1. Probably gonna go get the final nail upgrade. I've got 400 odd essence (just found out that 900 gives you the ability to set fast travel points?) so I can get pale ore there. I'd imagine I've got 25 grubs or so, so getting to 31 is probably a sensible thing to do, it's just trying to remember which one's I've got and which one's I need and then it's to the Colosseum for the second trial.
  2. I've been pulling 60 hour weeks at work for the past month so I've not really played much. Dunno if I'm out of practice or out of talent (and having a 3 year old in the room certainly doesn't help when I'm trying to concentrate on boss fights) but I'm having my ass handed to me on the reg at the moment. Mantis Lords are kicking my ass, the walk from the bench back to their room sucks a lot of my desire to keep trying the fight, apparently I've fucked it on getting the bench near them because one of them has locked a door and it won't be reopened until I beat them so I'm trying the Traitor Lord now. He seems really difficult too:
  3. So they can sell him to West Ham when he turns 30.
  4. Did they lose a bet or something?
  5. Bob Paisley was Bill Shankly’s assistant. I think he did alright when he got the job. More recently Tito Villanova was Pep’s assistant at Barca. Sadly he died of cancer a year after taking the job, but he did very well there. Appointing from within can work, you don’t see many people get the opportunity but it’s not instant disaster.
  6. You're quite right. They've just appointed Andrea Pirlo. Two year contract.
  7. Sarri sacked by the evil empire. Presumably they’ll go for Poch. That’s two clubs in a row where they’ve employed Sarri to bring the sort of football he played at Napoli and binned him off after one season where he won a trophy. Surely if you want a change in style you’ve got to give your man two or three seasons?
  8. Craig Shakespeare in as assistant manager at Villa. Not hugely surprising, he’s a Brummie, he’s a Villa fan, he goes back donkeys years with Dean Smith and he brings much needed Premier League experience. Dunno what this means for John Terry, but put the last time Shakespeare was assistant at a midlands club who’d just avoided relegation they won the league the next season. So put your house on us for the title.
  9. I can’t unsee that now you’ve pointed it out. Looks like something Team GB would wear at the cycling.
  10. Did West Brom ever play Tranmere when they were both sponsored by their local council?
  11. Still optimistic about Villa right now. In three weeks we’ll have sold Jack Grealish to Southampton and we’ll be 19th on Xmas day, but I’m happy at the moment.
  12. The Fairs Cup isn’t even a real competition, you didn’t qualify on merit (it was invite only like a lot of pre season tournaments are) and it wasn’t sanctioned by UEFA who to this day don’t recognise it. It seems to have an elevated status on these shores because they recycled the trophy for the UEFA Cup/Europa League and Newcastle United list it as their most recently won honour.
  13. The team who finished 2018/19 definitely did. There were a lot of comings and going’s over the summer (a team full of loanees and thirty sometimes in the final year of their contract will ensure that happens) but we did make three of the loan signings permanent and it probably would have been four if Manchester Utd hadn’t decided to recall Axel Tuanzebe so he could play 180 minutes of football this season. There still seemed to be a good vibe at the place, the jury is still out on Dean Smith but he got us promoted when we were left needing snookers before his appointment and then kept a hugely inexperienced squad with (apparently) the third lowest wage bill in the league up. He does seem to be capable of instilling a good atmosphere in the place and based on the evidence of the past two seasons that seems to be important. We are at a crossroads this summer though. Again.
  14. I felt the same about Villa about a year ago, then I found out that everybody in the Premier League had much better players than we did.
  15. He’s slowly transitioning into the Heavy from TF2. When he shaves his head and signs for Leeds don’t be surprised if he starts speaking with a Russian accent.
