  1. Players are PAYE, and that is forming part of their PFA defence that cutting their wages will cost the government millions on lost tax. Great thread here about how the clubs arrived at the 30% figure
  2. I don't think the £125m is a gift, just bringing forward the previously agreed payments (don't they call them solidarity or loyalty, some such guff).
  3. recall watching this a few years back and it being pretty good
  4. amazing talent, by far my favourite soul singer, I love how his songs are stories. oddly the songs he's most famous for, in particular lovely day, aren't representative of his tone or best material. too many to choose a favourite song but as an album closer and shocker of a song ending 'Better Off Dead' can't be beaten.
  5. the egg thing is shit, its totally over the top and swamps the whole game and its appeal I want to go on in the evening to stroll about and catch a few fish as the sun sets, not break rods hauling in eggs to make gaudy shite to impress a Donnie Darko ripoff rabbit.
  6. interesting piece on the Athletic about player contracts and the issues they present in completing the season now
  7. Levy is no mere senior employee, he's the owners man and is himself a percentage owner of the club, the story goes that Joe Lewis originally wanted to flip the club much more quickly (as is his way) but Levy saw the potential for huge upside with TV rights and the stadium situation and has been indulged whilst he's been achieving that. The likes of Levy/Lewis aren't interested in trophies per se, just how much value you can extract from the business when you eventually sell (which is helped by challenging but not necessarily worth the investment that winning would require)
  8. here is a simple guide to channeling your inner Percy Thrower or Charlie Dimmock https://www.vg247.com/2020/03/31/animal-crossing-new-horizons-flower-hybrid-flowers-cross-breeding/
  9. thanks @jonnyalpha I just dived in and out quick, will send you something, didn't want to risk staying or chatting and losing my stash again. the online in this harks back to the days of dial up modems, its dire.
  10. The puzzles in Good Job are already far better crafted than Goose I'd say, goose was funny but it was often trying to discover the one thing that you had to do to make something work, this is more sandbox. Second floor in logistics and I'm controlling a sky crane thing and now let loose on forklifts in a warehouse - its really good. I've been sat for 10-15m trying to see how to do the first forklift level and finally twigged it.
  11. think one of the reviews I linked mentions the number of floors, at 4 levels per floor. The complexity ramps up as you go along so levels should take longer. length/value always subjective, I can't see it being Animal Crossing or Zelda like in how long its around for, my initial thought is that its a nice little game though for quick blasts.
  12. levels get separate score based on time/damage that then get combined into an overall score you can cause utter mayhem for a faster time (which may score ok) or carefully pick thru a level being as clean as possible.
  13. Lock down fever meant I coughed up the £18 for surprise release Good Job yesterday - initial play is positive. Nintendo published but don't know the story behind the game itself, is it in-house or did they assist a 3rd party. It's one of these physics sandbox puzzle type affairs but with a level of Nintendo polish applied which makes it fun and not super fiddly to play (these things are often so fiddly). Control of your character is lovely and 'free' without being sloppy and you can either carefully tread around the office aiming for as little damage as possible to achieve your goals, or just create havoc doing so. Initial floor missions involve rounding up missing workers for a meeting (you can wheel them nicely back in their chairs or setup catapults using power cables and fire them thru walls), rerouting and connecting the internet (this requires a couple of small obstacles to be overcome on the way). It's got a lovely clean aesthetic and could be good. edit Seems it was a 3rd party https://kotaku.com/good-job-turns-office-nepotism-into-something-more-fun-1842515627 https://www.polygon.com/2020/3/26/21196132/good-job-nintendo-switch-impressions-paladin-studios-office-job-physics-work-chaos
  14. Ornstein article on The Athletic today about the feelings toward restarting the Premier League (spoiler for length)
