    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    I suppose the positive thing for smaller companies like yourself Joe, is kind of what wiper was alluding to earlier - that GW have their own style, which leaves gaps for people to make stuff in different styles, which will appeal to lovers of miniatures. I'm a fan of GW's style, but as a painter, and despite how great they are to paint, I crave different stuff to paint. I also think GW's current hot streak will be bringing new people in, and perhaps more pertinently, bringing people who've drifted away back into the hobby, and surely some of them will look around for different miniatures. The one thing that's a shame is their insurance on keeping the policy of not letting you use 3rd party alternative models in their games.

    And yet the morning session couldn't have gone any better for England really.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Brighton deserved the win, well played to them. What's strange is that we didn't ask them any questions. There was no attempt to get more players forward, or put the Brighton defence under pressure. Think about past United games when we've been losing - we'd be camped around their area. One or two in the box, every other player in a kind of arc around 30 yards from the goal. Here we had none of that, just long punts towards Fellaini (who did okay) and no-one looking for a second ball, never mind running in behind. All match we made two runs in behind Brighton, both Rashford, and both times the pass didn't find him. There seemed to be a 60 yard gap between the attack and midfield. We look a considerable way behind City, Liverpool, Spurs, and even Chelsea.

    We've got a proper old-fashioned Mourinho third season developing here.

    Again, I can see the reasoning behind bringing Fellaini on for Martial but fuck that's a depressing substitution. Fergie would have bought on an attacker for a defender and overwhelmed their defence. Brighton haven't had much trouble containing us so far, but we haven't changed shape at all. It's still 4-3-3 with two deep midfielders, essentially.

    We needed to make substitutions that will get us back in the game. Smalling isn't going to score the goals to do that. Mata had a shocking half by his standards, and Pereira hadn't done anything much at all in an attacking or defensive sense. What we need is for Pogba to stop pissing about (he did Bailly no favours with that crossfield pass to him on the edge of our area a few minutes ago) Fred to stop panicking, Martial to stop sulking and start playing, and probably De Gea to make a few great saves because the defence aren't going to stop them. The worst thing is we've looked dreadful for the first ten minutes of the second half.

    We came back from two down away to City last season, so a comeback is still possible. Jose probably feels like he needs six substitutions though.

    If we'd gone in 2-1 down I'd still be reasonably confident, but that third one is a killer. What the hell are our defence playing at today?

    That was a really classy finish. Lovely touch.

    I did think his comment about royalties was funny. He says he's in it so he should get royalties, but if City send him one of the "we did it on derby day" t-shirts they had made to celebrate winning the title by beating United (they lost 3-2) he'll call it quits. A brief, unexpected return of Funny Mourinho.

    Kenedy failed to complete a single pass in the first half of Cardiff Vs Newcastle. An impressive level of incompetence.
