  1. Last season, Arteta complained about the grass being deliberately left too long at Turf Moor to disrupt the Arsenal passing game. This season, he complained that it was too short...
  2. I hope the devs watch the video - the point about feeling like you properly owned the cars and had to think about which ones fit into your house / lifestyle absolutely nails it. I have over 600 cars in FH4 but I don't care for more than 5 of them. As she says in the video, they were mostly all new / current models, not the same from a few years earlier so it felt more "real".
  3. For me, live performances are about the connection between performers and crowd and I've never felt the two feeding off each other in a virtuous circle quite like at this gig. I know a lot of people hate The Levellers, but screw them, because at their peak they were an amazing live and this was them at the very top of their game. The crowd shots from 3.40 onwards show just how everybody was just so utterly into it. They aren't on YouTube (I have MP3s) but also Terrorvision's first ever last ever gig at Penningtons Bradford is absolutely top notch with an amazing
  4. Might be worth keeping an eye on this Twitter thread.
  5. There are more similarities between their styles of play that most pundits would like to admit.
  6. Nah. He’s a good young keeper. Bit of a strange one to lose there and blowing a lead two weeks in a row is most unlike us. However, it is another sign that having a strong first XI just isn’t enough. No options on the bench again whereas Bruce, for all his many faults, knew that he could make personnel changes.
  7. I'm definitely expecting goals in the lunchtime kickoff today!
  8. You've got a week lads, find out what the Duke is wearing and you can avoid a kit clash.
  9. Not booking Rodrigo for his outrageous playacting was another.
  10. I tried GTA V when it was last on GamePass. If only there was some way to play it without the hateful, hateful characters.
  11. I really enjoyed Deliver Us The Moon.
  12. Amazon have a new one of their behind the scenes documentaries up on Prime - Making Their Mark follows the 2020 AFL (Aussie Rules) season and some of the personalities behind it. I was lucky enough to see an AFL game a couple of years ago and it's a fantastic sport. Fast, tough and end to end. (The AFL usually put 7-10 minutes highlights packages up on Youtube after every match.) I'm only an episode in and they are introducing the players and staff. However, they've already showcased Eddie Betts (an absolute genius who can score from anywhere) and Nic Natanui (6'6" Fijian, stro
  13. Imagine what the result would have been if Germany had had to play the whole of Macedonia.
  14. Aguero to leave Man City after a decade. I don't think that he has been truly appreciated in this country. Probably because you get used to overall excellence, as opposed to out of your seat at a magical moment. He's one of those players who just does the right thing, every time.
  15. Once every few months, I fire up VICE-64 and blast* my way through Impossible Mission. *Well, somersault and search.
  16. Looks like one of the FA Cup semifinals might have 10,000 fans in. Hopefully it will be Leicester/Southampton.
  17. Excellent article from Two Hundred Percent about the mess that the National League have got themselves into by forcing teams to play. https://twohundredpercent.net/national-league-despair-where/
  18. I read a very interesting idea from either Ken Early or one of his friends that said if Jeff Hendrick had been born with exactly the same football talent but was called Jorge Hendriques, then he would right now be a central midfielder in a top 10 La Liga side known mainly for his silky creative skills. Instead he was born in Ireland, dumped into the English system and his undoubted talents subsumed into running and tackling. Having watched him for four years, it's an idea that I have a lot of time for.
  19. Yes. The book on Delaney’s management of the FAI is an eye-opener. Unless you are used to the way Irish politics works. The League of Ireland might be ranked higher by UEFA but the bottom clubs in the top division are generally facing bankruptcy every season.
  20. Luxembourg have invested in their facilities, their players and their league. The FAI... haven't.
  21. I completely disagree. Franchises still fail or succeed on their own terms. What matters is good drafting, good team building and good coaching. Teams can't just go out and buy success by buying the best players. I follow the NHL very closely and my team (Boston) has been a contender for 40 of the last 50 years, winning three championships. They had a ten year down period and got two #1 draft picks, both of which didn't turn out well for them (they've gone on to success with other teams). In comparison, one of the biggest teams in the sport, Toronto has been a failure for arou
