    Remember you'd be putting Kane in there as well. Is there anyone else who is injured at the moment but would come in?

    Thanks! I do play a bit of AOS. Not as much as I'd like, but I get the odd game in. It's great. I'd like to play 40K but I never get to play it. My mate who is also cripplingly addicted to plastic crack is into AOS rather than 40K, so I've followed him into it. Regarding the sprue, it's not as bad as you might think, because that sprue covers all three treeman varients. Identifying which elbow is which is the most difficult bit. Thanks as well! I'll try that when I next do a bit of airbrushing. Waiting for stuff to dry might negate the speed benefits of airbrushing though. And thanks @Nicky too. An oil-painted treelord would be interesting. The base wasn't too tricky, and I'm delighted with how it came out.

    This is the last thing I finished painting. It's a Treelord Ancient from my Sylvaneth army. For some reason my four-year-old son has really latched onto this miniature. He occasionally takes an interest in my miniature painting, and has a few favorites - a little cat from Super Dungeon Explore, a Jabba the Hutt from Imperial Assault - and the Treelord is his latest favorite. He's given it a name - Treeman. Okay, it's not a particularly original name. He keeps asking me to get it out of the display cabinet for him, and he likes to sit and hold it. He's fascinated by the water, how it's not wet when he touches it. I always let him look at it and hold it, because I'd quite like to encourage an interest in this sort of thing. He's really, adorably, careful with it, but it still worries me a bit. It's so fragile! You don't want to know how many times I broke it when I was painting it.

    A BIT shit? We were more shit than that I'll have you know. That was a rare level of shitness. You don't see that sort of shit every day. I mean, did you see Pogba's passing? Gourmet shit.

    Well, that's a shame. Far too cautious, possibly a bit fatigued after the emotion and effort of Sunday. A mystifying performance. We lost to a mediocre Seville team because we were apparently frightened of them

    We're paying for our approach over both legs. We should have taken the game to them in the first game, and it's unfathomable that we played so negatively at home. Absolutely no attacking intent. Good goal big Rom, though.

    There it is. Absolutely inevitable.

    Typical Jose team's performance. So cripplingly terrified of conceding an away goal that they forget to do any attacking of their own.

    A couple of months to the World Cup, and England's star striker goes off with a nasty-looking injury. Textbook.

    I can't remember if I posted these. A squad of Kabalite Warriors from my slowly expanding Dark Eldar army. Also, an Oldhammer Blood Bowl ogre.

    Butland and Pickford would be my first two picks as England keeper. Pickford is a slight worry as there are serious flaws in his game, but he's a superb shot-stopper. Heaton would have been my third keeper, but he's lost his place in the Burnley team after getting injured. I'm not convinced by Pope, but that might be down to not paying him much attention. He seems fairly solid, but nothing special. I'd put Forster ahead of him, and possibly Ben Foster as well. Oddly enough, I think Ashley Barnes has an outside chance of making the squad just as a dirty bastard to throw on as a plan B.

    Knockaert's sending off today is one of the maddest challenges I've seen in a long time. The circumstances make it even more bizarre. If you haven't seen it, Baines tried to cross the ball, but it hit Knockaert in the face. Knockaert then seconds later for some reason took revenge on Baines with a two-footed knee-high late tackle. Revenge for accidentally hitting a cross at him! It's the kind of thing you might see from one or two of the more particularly mental 5-a-side teams I've played for, but from a professional? Amazing.

    What a cock Souness is. United "got away with it" today apparently.

    Strange that Klopp is picking out the Fellaini on Mane challenge as a penalty. That's the one of the three penalty shouts that is the least a penalty. The ball was back-heeled, Fellaini moved towards the loose ball, trying to get there ahead of Mane, and Mane ran into him.
