  1. I start liking the first couple of them then they start to gunge my teeth up and a nasty after taste comes thru. I quite like those really thick cut crisps called slabs
  2. That was hard work to finish - whole ep didn’t raise a smile. Just a boring mess of people shouting unfunny non zingers at each other that felt like they came from leftover notepads from Veep or Thick Of It, and not a character or story I could care less for. Will give ep2 a go but suspect its not for me as found it awful.
  3. I tried to watch the vid and going to give some honest (personal) feedback - its not for me I'd say. I watch a bit of YouTube stuff for MMA, but not a lot, you obviously can't compete with UFC themselves for access & budget but its just a bit too dull and isn't engaging, even a picture of who you are talking about in the corner or something to break it up a bit - I can't watch 6m of a bloke at a mic just speaking in a fairly monotone way. I'm not saying stick thumping royalty free EDM over the whole thing with every screen effect in iMovie - just I need something to make me want to engage more, why am I listening to your view for so long (as opposed to coming in here and just having a chat like we do). Even a format like 3 good 3 bad where you could put up bullets you then expand on to back up your views. Good luck with it, but not for me.
  4. Brighton are impressive in how many big fees they've paid for people who I don't recall playing much - plus you are one of those clubs who don't receive big fees for any of these players (not alone on that front) Propper €13m, Izquierdo €15m, Locadia €17m, Bernardo €10m, Bissouma €17m, Jahanbakhsh €19m, Trossard €20m, Webster €22m, Maupay €22m
  5. Interesting net spend article - some of these clubs have been spectacular in how badly they've spent money and the sheer scale of the mismanagement going on https://www.football365.com/news/europes-biggest-net-spends-since-2015-liverpool-29th
  6. I know I'm not representative but think I'm at the point that for 'big' games I'm happy with Nintendo putting out a few of their known games, with new twists, every few years. I'm not really into shooters or the big GTA/Ubisoft kitchen sink games so got no interest in that space. New IP is far more interesting to me now in smaller experimental and most importantly cheaper indie style games.
  7. When I see Ole looking haunted on the touch line like some Vietnam vet thousand yard stare I always see this Simpsons classic image
  8. Ngannou KOs most people if he catches them - the hole in his game is what happens when that isn't an option. He gets gassed swinging wildly and lying on his back is the previous idea.
  9. I always thought the question that nailed OGS at Utd was on the Totally Football podcast months ago - they asked how far do you need to go down the league pyramid to find a club that would take OGS as their manager from Utd - it's almost always been the case during his time in charge you drop well into the Championship. Its an interesting question of any manager at a point in time actually. He's got that haunted look about him too now when somebody is way out of their depth - just don't get why they are leaving him sat there like this, its painful. You've got Poch waiting to go if reports are correct and he can bed himself in for a few months this season now its almost a write off.
  10. Not watched the video but I'm with @schmojo Unbeatable and MMA don't really go together well, especially for a fighter who has been beaten so comprehensively in one aspect of the game and has yet to prove he's corrected that. He looked like a ladybug on its back against Stipe and got shown up for being incredibly limited on the ground. 3 super quick 1st round KOs since then don't prove that gap has been filled - its not enough to KO somebody with a ground game quickly to prove you've gained those skills, you have to go to the ground, get back up, or do something positionally. He's still a monster puncher, and that is a good trick if you're gonna be a 1 trick pony, especially at HW.

    its in quite a few papers - I saw mentioned somewhere that when the grind gets too fine and tamped then you get dry spots in the bed that don't get extracted at all I don't think its an issue with a Nespresso.

    i look forward to the inevitable James Hoffman video - people been making espresso all wrong apparently. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/coffee-how-to-make-perfect-cup-formula-brew-espresso-science-a9297086.html
  13. season 2 dated for end of Feb https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/21/altered-carbon-season-2-will-finally-drop-on-netflix-next-month-as-marvel-star-replaces-dc-actor-in-main-role-12098999/ Like many of these streaming shows I'll need a good recap to watch as tend to zoom thru them in a few days then forget them in the wait - but I recall sort of enjoying this I think (goes back to look for posts slagging it off)

    I don't think how we are playing under Arteta is suiting Lacazette, especially with Aubamyang out. He's not somebody who can play up front on his own and hold up play like Drogba. He needs people around him and can't feed off scraps. Pepe is talented but quite erratic so nobody knows what he is going to do, and Martinelli is often tracking back to help Saka out. He looks like quite an introverted moody character and has shown flashes of playing angry with Aubamyang when he's looked great, but more often than not cuts a frustrated looking figure. Think there is an excellent all round striker in there somewhere, he just hasn't been able to show it consistently.

    Nice to come back like that with 10 men so good a bit of fight was rewarded, but a large element of good fortune to it with them fluffing numerous chances and us scoring with our only 2 efforts on target - 1 coming about solely cos Kante fell over (but a great run by Martinelli after that) and a suspect effort from Kepa from Bellerins well directed standing leg swinger. Was more notable at the weekend in person but you can see how in attempting to tighten us up at the back the attacking side of the team is being neutered - but Arteta is probably doing the one thing at a time fix and trying to stop giving up 20+ shots a game. Was very interesting against Sheffield how out of possession Xhaka was slotting in as a 3rd CB, so when we did turn it over we were lighter in midfield to have a base to build from. Then we have 1 or 2 converted wing backs so not really gaining the advantage of a specialist going forward there - Bellerin returning can only help over the rather poor Maitland-Niles. We do need to start getting a couple of wins though as the table just looks ugly, we're behind Southampton now !
