  1. Shut down probably 20 years ago and seems to be set on fire at least once a year.
  2. If only we’d have got rid of McCarthy one game sooner, before we played you. If we’d won that, it would be you going down instead of us. All relegated teams will have ifs and buts of course, yet it’s so frustrating that relegation was completely self inflicted with the appointment of the Mickosaurus.
  3. Yep, I remember this too. It was called Lost, which makes it quite hard to Google as it preceded the plane crash island show by a couple of years.
  4. Huge one tonight. Odds still very much stacked against us, but Cardiff winning last night was quite good for us and we need them to repeat the favour against Huddersfield. You’d like to think a win tonight will at least give us a mathematical chance going into the final day, and it’s all we can do. Nearly a sell-out tonight and think Bloomfield Road should be bouncing. An early goal would have everyone believing.
  5. I was trying to figure out exactly how many potential outcomes there are, and in how many of those scenarios we’d be safe, but I can’t get my head around it. 18 year old me studying A-Level maths would have done it in no time.
  6. Are you playing on hard mode? I completed my run of this on casual mode last night, having got through the game without dying. Might give it a crack at some point on a harder difficulty, but it was nice to just explore the world without worrying too much about how hard it was. The phazon core section definitely still a pain, but in the end I used the power bomb strategy every time I got to a point where I wasn’t likely to plummet back down to the bottom and only lost about three quarters of one energy tank.
  7. It’s all the teams playing each other which make it so improbable that we’ll stay up. Even a maximum six points requires a very favourable set of results to go our way. Wigan can actually be our most useful ally in some ways and we need to be rooting for them to win both, because it’s only really six points for us which gives us a chance and they’d still be behind us. Rotherham vs Cardiff really needs to not be a draw, because that takes two teams out of our reach. Maybe a Cardiff win is better and then them getting all three points against Huddersfield helps us too, but after one win Cardiff could be on the beach if they feel it’s mission accomplished. It’s also a shame that Sheffield Utd will also likely be confirmed as promoted before they play Huddersfield, because it increases the chance of a result like Burnley losing to QPR. Mainly we just need to beat Millwall on Friday, and then pray there’s an equation on the final day which would keep us up. Going into the final day with a shot at survival would be an achievement for Dobbie after the mess McCarthy left us in.
  8. We’ve shown signs of a pulse but that’s all it is right now. Mind you, back it up with a win at home to West Brom on Tuesday night and that would really put the cat among the pigeons.
  9. You can what now? Oh dear, the time I’ve spent getting some energy tanks and missile upgrades that needed chaining two jumps with bombs… 😩
  10. Loved this back in the GameCube era but the first hour or so of the Remaster I found a bit disorienting and took a while to get used to the save stations again. Anyway, I’ve just got the Power Bomb and it’s fully got its claws into me now. Just a brilliant game and the remastered visuals are that perfect thing of making it look like it is in my memory. I am also playing on Casual which to be honest has been nice. Combat is much less of a worry as a result, especially in areas where save points are further apart. Loving whizzing across the map back and forth now I have got a bunch of abilities.
  11. No, it’s too late now and it was obvious 2 or 3 games in that he had no idea what he’d taken on and had not a clue how to get the most out of our (admittedly poor) squad. Should have been potted weeks ago. We’re down now and I think Mick just didn’t want to stick around to take even more flak from the fans.
  12. You can forget about losing at Bloomfield Road, or the idea we’ll catch you. The only way those things will happen is if the owner comes to his senses in realising what an almighty fuck up he made in appointing McCarthy, who has to be the worst appointment in my lifetime following the club. Completely unable to get anything out of these players.
  13. Wordle 652 X/6 🟩⬛⬛🟨⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ Wonderful.
  14. I think I watched most of season 1 of this and then gave up. Could I just jump straight into season 3?
  15. Would be truly embarrassing if we managed to get relegated despite 3 or 4 other teams having these types of issues. But there’s no way we are staying up under McCarthy.
  16. I think I did the middle trial and then found it frustrating so just left it. Certainly didn’t have the energy to keep banging my head against a wall with it. It is OK to just move on and not complete it, you know?
  17. Feel pretty confident in saying we’ve had it. Can’t see us getting more than one or two wins under McCarthy. It’s just dire. Burnley this weekend would be a bit of a free-hit normally given how good they are, but games are running out and if other results go against us then a defeat could put us so far behind it’s even more insurmountable. Us and two others for the drop.
  18. As someone who hasn’t played the game, I’ve been really enjoying this so far. That said, episode 5 lost me a little.
  19. I’ve got some serious work travel over the next 4-6 weeks so going to subscribe finally. Normally I just don’t get enough time to listen to podcasts generally when I’m WFH 3 days and only a 10 minute commute on the other days, but with a lot of solo travelling coming up I can finally get stuck in. Due to time constraints I often skip some of the mag-focused episodes with guests but the most recent one was a great listen with all of the ONM stories.
  20. I think you can count us out. If anything we’ve gone backwards under McCarthy. The guy won’t even try to attack when we’ve got the other shit teams at home. We are properly doomed.
  21. Can’t wait to get stuck into this. Remember buying it on the back of a 10 it got in GamesTM. Still remember being wowed by how the snow looked when you get to Phenandra Drifts. Found Echoes a more frustrating experience and hated those areas where you were running between those safe zones to avoid taking damage.
  22. Even on Secret Agent I’m having a bit of a hard time getting past Bunker 2. Definitely a tough level.
  23. I ballsed up Control by killing Boris when he pulled a gun on me. Wasn’t until about 5 mins later that I realised however, when Natalya scolded me for killing her mate and the mission was failed. Had completely forgotten about that. Ooops.
  24. Had a 90 minute session on Xbox last night working my way through on Agent. Got to Streets before I died. I’d forgot how awkward that tank is to control. Loved the rest of it though and my memory of the levels is still pretty strong. Shame the online multiplayer is on Switch only.
