    Arsenal

    I’m not sure its that good news - he’s always seemed a bit sensitive and in recent seasons I’ve been convinced he just uses Arsenal to get fit for Germany - he doesn’t strike me as the type that will bounce back with an ‘I’ll show them attitude’. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot more sickness absences.

    Richardson sounds like Silva testing the love of the club that had such trouble getting him in - like he's told them he must have him and will build his team around him. If anybody has seen a lot of him in the Prem it will of course be Silva, so maybe he's seen something, after his fast start a few teams were linked with him in Jan. If you look at transfer inflation where top young strikers are now c£150m instead of £80m, then you can inflation adjust Richarlison down to the c£25m from a year or 2 back - still sounds a lot. Everton are getting a big squad now, can't keep all those forwards and wingers happy.

    Its going to be another great stadium I'm sure, but no denying the new spurs ground looks like a bog seat from above.

    Sport Documentaries

    I found it pretty tedious - it was a puff piece - if you like watching Buffon be over earnest and moody in nice clothes though its a good watch. For a good sports doc I'm looking for something really revealing and behind the scenes Reminded me about Trophy Kids which seems to have dropped off UK Netflix - this shows pushy parents behind the future generation of sports stars. The short game is similar but focusses solely on golfing kids - its a sobering story and an uncomfortable watch in places IIRC. https://www.netflix.com/watch/70290567?trackId=13752290&tctx=0%2C1%2C62beb3f98f1ab53c09f75cf16deaca3e522508ef%3Ab5d1b81c6f9f9f7b91b860da4fa8991b346a2f42%2C%2C If people are recommending stuff be useful to say where its available please - thanks.

    Sport Documentaries

    These seem to be growing in popularity in recent years and better suited to this sub forum than the main TV section. Started watching the 3rd series of All or Nothing last night on Netflix, this is an all access behind the scenes doc following a US college football team (which is oddly huge in the US and gets huge crowds and full TV coverage) - The first 2 seasons were brilliant, and the 3rd takes the format but at a different university. The coach in this one seems the most unpleasant individual committed to film in a long time (even compared to Buddy in seasons 1&2). Netflix has a 6 part series following Juve last season, First Team, but its very lightweight and suffers from lack of access, 90% of it is match conferences, press conferences and players talking whilst driving their cars (mostly Buffon). Its a real puff piece Nd totally avoids any insight or controversy, Buffon saying Michael Oliver had a municple trash can for a heart doesn’t warrant a mention. What is odd is how most of Juve’s signage and merch is written in English. Amazon has their rival All or Nothing series - the first 3 seasons of this followed big NFL teams, but there is now a college spin off (really good with a nice coach this time) and an All Blacks rugby one. Coming soon is a Man City version for last season and be intrigued to see if they get the same access the NFL teams gave them, dressing rooms and all. Final shout is to something I'd missed originally - The Four Year Plan, it follows QPR a few back when taken over by Lakshmi Mittal, Flavio Briatore and some other billionaire chums, and its a proper warts and all horror show for most concerned https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Four-Year-Plan-Amit-Bhatia/dp/B0778NJDQK/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1532154905&sr=8-5&keywords=qpr

    this is some good analysis on Alisson - especially like the stats around the xG of chances he faced and how many went in - I wasn't impressed in the WC with him but this scouting report looks very positive. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44875174

    The Rllmuk Metal Thread Part 2

    Don't think there is a dedicated System of a Down or offshoots thread, do they count as metal ? Anyway just spotted that 10y after their debut Scars On Broadway have put put out their second album, Dictator. The first was brilliant, apologies if anybody gonna get offended and say its not metal !
  8. I've still got series 1 unwatched on my sky box !

    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    people are saying Covington may be injured and Till is claiming that Woodley turned the fight against him down. the UFC can't wait for somebody to nab the belt off Woodley - he's not endearing himself to them and doesn't really have a champion attitude of taking on all comers.

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    I'm Brexit Schmexit - all these rules man, its why its happening in the first place.
  11. so watching a trailer for this on youtube it looks like you can fly much lower to the surface and alongside trees and surface objects - I always found the invisible force field keeping you away from the surface massively frustrating on launch on PS4 - I may be tempted to take another look at this.

    so Liverpool's new expensive keeper has a brother called Muriel - what were that family doing with their naming - I know some names are multi purpose but never had Alison or Muriel in that category, their mum must have really wanted girls.
  13. the game does look very promising, I have to think of it though as Infamous in stupid pyjamas as the whole comic thing bores me to tears and I can't watch any of the movies or endless netflix mopey back story shows.

    The Smoking and BBQ thread

    I did read the specs of that £25k bbq - can’t see much if anything it does I can’t do on my Primo. I have a battery powered blower that does temp contol, its super insulated and can hit a high top temp. They look like lovely items, but functionally I’m covered.

    The Staircase (contains verdict spoilers)

    an awful lot of motive detail and forensics - which even allowing for the discredited blood spatter and eyebrows DA lady still seem worthy of mention in a programme with such a generous runtime. much like Making a Murderer its looking a bit one sided to me - good doc and good story, just wish they'd been more balanced in their presentation, would still be gripping stuff. I read that the DA removed permission to film them early on during proceedings (you see them not featured from the inside only an ep or 2 in) and wonder if the film makers just sided with the defence.
