  1. If you finish higher you have the advantage of home playoff games and fewer games in the case of teams that finish 2nd and 3rd. So in that respect it's actually better than the old system that the football league use. Playoffs give hope to more teams, but all things considered I'd get rid of them completely. Promote the best in the league. It should also be expanded to three up, but that will always be difficult to get the football league clubs to agree to.
  2. I'll point you in the direction of last seasons thread when I was more in the mood to spend time explaining it.
  3. I've always been impressed with Beautyman when I've seen him. A player every team in the league would love in their squad. It's been mentioned before, but that unpredictability of results will, as they have been with us, be partly due to how close the standard of teams are in the league this season. I've never seen anything like it before.
  4. We have no VAR. I'm quite content with the way our games are officiated. The good thing about having really poor officials is that they more frequently make mistakes which means that bad decisions are more likely to even themselves up over the course of a single game of football. So what we are getting is shit, but pretty fair refereeing. Issues arise in our games when we have someone actually pretty competent who fancies themselves taking charge of a world cup final one day and then they make a single wrong call in a tight game.
  5. Scott Quigley was really good for us when we had him too. Injury prone, but excellent at our level when fit, and Barrow have had a mostly fit one. A gamble signing for them that looks to have paid off massively. Great comeback from you lot though. To be honest, I thought you were on for challenging for the playoffs after your ace late 2019 run of form, but all those draws since have killed off any hopes. A great win for us at Bromley. We were fucking awful away from home in 2019, but now have three 2-0 away victories in four matches this year. Unexpectedly, because they were a bit mixed the first time he was in charge of us, Keates has made some really decent forward signings that gives us a chance in these games now. Coventry loan Ponticelli and Ross County reject Keillor Dunn the difference yesterday with two cracking goals. Another away game at out of form Yeovil at the weekend.
  6. Just posted my top bunch of favorite albums. I struggled loads to rank them so they are presented in alphabetical order. That means it's congratulations to A Tribe Called Quest, worthy winners of anything ever.

  8. A shit result for us against Chesterfield away on Saturday where Wrexham were twice in the lead, but ended up losing 3-2 to the last kick of the game. We are unbeaten against the top 7 in the league, but consistently struggle against the sides fighting relegation. It's fucking weird. If Fylde, who are 3rd from bottom with games in hand, pick themselves up, which I think they could well do, I expect teams to require an unusual amount of points to stay up this season. We really could do with a win against Torquay on Saturday.
  9. Windy as fuck yesterday in North Wales and Wrexham and Dagenham both struggled with it creating very few chances. A scrappy and frustrating one to watch and the only time this season I've misjudged the potential temperature before leaving the house and ended up freezing cold. 0-0
  10. 50 should do it, but possibly only because three will get relegated this season. Fylde will surely pick up a bit at some point though. They've got the money to throw at it.
  11. 2nd in the table Harrogate Town who had won 5 in a row without conceding a goal today hosted the team with the worst away record in the league who hadn't won on an artificial pitch in 11 1/2 years of conference football. Something like a 2-0 Wrexham victory was inevitable.
  12. He took a decent penalty later on in the match too and very nearly got a hat trick. He was really good at the weekend and back to the player we had in the first months of last season before the Christmas period that year nearly destroyed him. 32 isn't mega old, but he does struggle to play well game after game and visibly benefits from time off. Maybe we should only play him in home games from now on.
  13. 5 wins and 3 losses in 8 for Wrexham has the table looking a bit better now than it did when we were rock bottom at the end of November. Notably, Ebbsfleet and Chorley are starting to look a little detached in 23rd and 24th and sides in poorer form than us like Dagenham and Redbridge have been sucked down into the relegation fight. I did witness the worst performance I've ever seen against Aldershot the Saturday before last, but was encouraged by our 3-0 victory against Woking at the weekend. Defensively we had to stay resilient for a couple for key periods and we were pretty lively going forward throughout. New attacking midfield signing from Stoke Jarvis played a big part in this with a great debut. Our away form is dreadful and the away games we have left are mostly against the top sides in the division, so I think we'll probably have to rely quite heavily on more home performances like that to achieve safety. But at this point in time, as long as we keep our key players fit, I'm hopeful that we'll just about do it. The fist goal by Summerfield was alright by the way. We've had a monumentally shit season, but at least 1/3 of our goals scored have been amazing.
  14. It was already an exhilarating rhythm action game featuring stupendous next level waggle and one of VR's finest, but Beat Saber on Quest feels much more than it did on PS4 with untethered freedom and the ease of simply popping the headset on every time I want some quick block slicing action. The recent 360 mode a great evolution. Oculus Quest is a massive step forward for VR gaming and wins platform of the year by a mile. Luigi’s Mansion 3 looks and sounds amazing and is a joy to gently explore and capture alone or with another. Mario Maker 2 is the brilliant Mario Maker, but expanded in small but significant ways. It’s not as suited to Switch though and was too overfamiliar to have the impact the first one had on me. It's the original then that makes my top 10 of the decade. Kine is a really decent puzzle game that tells a lovely story with levels well designed to convey the emotion of relationships and situations the characters find themselves in through gameplay. Untitled Goose Game reminded me that I do actually like sandbox openworld games, it’s just that almost all of them are way too big and bloated and not funny enough. Game of the Year A1. Beat Saber A2. Luigi’s Mansion 3 A3. Super Mario Maker 2 A4. Kine A5. Untitled Goose Game Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. The existence of Mario Kart Tour Z2. Z3. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Luigi’s Mansion 3 S2. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening S3. Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair Visual Design of the Year V1. Luigi’s Mansion 3 V2. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening V3. Untitled Goose Game Writing of the Year W1. Kine W2. W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Oculus Quest Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Nintendo Best Supported Game (released pre 2019) of the Year B1. Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2018 or earlier) X1. Into the Breach Best game character of the year C1. Luigi C2. The Goose C3. And the big one: Game of the Decade D1. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword D2. Super Mario Galaxy 2 D3. Mario Kart 8 D4. Motorstorm Apocalypse D5. New Super Mario Bros U D6. Super Mario Odyssey D7. Beat Saber D8. The Witness D9. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze D10. Super Mario Maker The big three could be in any order. Skyward Sword is Zelda not for everyone, but the stars aligned for me. A game that wouldn't have been made by anyone other than Nintendo at that particular point in time. The motion controls are wonderful, particularly the sword combat, but it's also the linear Zelda template taken to new heights, with amazing dungeons and the best character driven story of the series. Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are the pinnacle of 3D platform gaming and the most magical of roller coaster home console thrill rides. The sequel’s levels even surpass the original. And Mario Kart 8 is the best arcade racing game we’ve seen with incredible all skill levels online competitive multiplayer. 4-10 after that could be in pretty much any order too and could well have included games like Portal 2, Flower, The Last Guardian, Pikmin 3, Splatoon, VVVVVV, Super Mario 3D World, Astro Bot, Nintendo Land and Rocket League.
  15. Yeah, our keeper is ace and I have no doubt that if he had been fit from the start of the season that we would be a fair few points higher up the table. You certainly look like you've got your shit together enough recently to stay up. To be honest, you looked good enough against us earlier in the season. Massive game for us against Chorley on Boxing Day. On paper we should win, but my guess is the players will be nervous as hell, particularly with the bigger crowd.
