    The Man Utd Thread

    Great to see that front 3 back. Missed Lingard's energy in particular against Arsenal.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Not too concerned by that result. Started slowly, but overall it was a very even game of which we actually had the better chances. To hit the post twice, have our in form striker spurn a one on one with their keeper, and concede by a freak goalkeeping error and a very soft penalty award is just unfortunate - can't take much more from it than that. Arsenal actually looked more threatening in the FA Cup game, the difference being we were more clinical that day.

    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    Was at Edgeley Park on Saturday for the first time this season to see Stockport County beat Spennymoor 1-0. Now 1pt off the top with a game in hand on leaders Chorley! Fantastic atmosphere and records broken...

    The 3DS Resurrection thread

    That's lovely. I went for function over form and got the new 3DS XL, but whenever I see those multi-coloured buttons and face plates I question my decision!
  5. I've watched the trailer a few times and the art style is growing on me. Initially it was a jarring transition from the beautiful hand-drawn animation style in the cutscene, but the vibrant toy-like style makes a lot of sense when you consider the calm, dreamy tone of much of the game, and its idiosyncrasies like the inclusion of Mario characters, the prevalence of magic and animals and the side-scrolling sections (I know Zelda II did side-scrolling first, but very different to LA). Really can't wait for this.

    PSG look so much more balanced when they don't have to squeeze Neymar and/or Cavani into the line up. Class above.
  7. Not convinced the disc format was what held back GTA from appearing on the platform. The install base and perceived demographic of the player base probably had more to do with it. I was peeved we still got DVD sized boxes for the games - the dinky Japanese boxes were far more in keeping with the aesthetic.

    Jesse Lingard's article on Players' Tribune is well worth a read: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/jesse-lingard-i-promise-you-never-read-a-story-like-this-mate That Roma photo.

    Should have gone Sane instead of De Bruyne and picked the wrong moment to get on the Digne bandwagon, but otherwise a good week. 79 + whatever Alli returns.

    I've decided to risk my wildcard after getting stuck with no FTs and a couple of injuries. Pretty much settled on a team now but torn between Sane and De Bruyne for my City attacking slot. Sane is in form, but will be under threat from Mendy's imminent return. De Bruyne looked sharp coming on against Wolves and is City's most important player on his day, but it's difficult to know how gently he'll be eased back into the regular starting XI.

    Do people still use DVDs?

    I still have them, but I limit my collection to my all-time favourite films that I know I'll want to return to. In recent weeks I've watched The Hustler, Die Hard and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I doubt I'd have been able to revisit any of those on Netflix. For about a year when I was living on my own I had an unlimited subscription to Cinema Paradiso and would be watching 4 films a week, working my way through all the classics (I miss those days!). There's no way I'd have been able to enjoy so many great films through Netflix or other streaming services alone.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I've said it before but I preferred watching us under LVG. We could actually keep possession, were difficult to score against, had the semblance of an identity tactically, developed young players (who seem to be regressing under Mourinho) and were very competitive in top 4 games. He was also a much more sympathetic and professional manager than Mourinho. Obviously that last season of his was a let down with the CL group stage exit and missing out on the top 4 on goal difference, but we still won the FA Cup (first major trophy post Fergie). There's no way we're getting that close to the top 4 this season, will be lucky to get beyond R16 of the CL, and there's no chance we're winning the FA Cup. All the while we have a manager who is openly undermining the confidence of players and taking the team backwards.
