  1. We really shouldn't be loaning Costa. At the end of next season, he'll be into the final year of his contract. Helder needs a move, but it needs to be a permanent one. I'd be amazed if Leeds could afford him. If he does move on permanently I'd expect it to be to someone like Villa or for him to move to a European club. We should be looking to recoup what we paid for him as there's still a cracking player there.
  2. Pleased you said that - I don't think I've read anything by him before.
  3. A Time To Kill by John Grisham is 99p today. Never read it but I have seen the film so thought I'd give it a go.
  4. 12. Daughters of the Dragon by William Andrews Recommended by @Darren and like so many of his Star Wars recommendations, I'm very pleased he posts on this forum because this book is absolutely brilliant. Harrowing, heart wrenching, dramatic, exciting, well paced and full of interesting characters, I found it very hard to put down. As Darren has already spoken about the themes of the book I won't dwell on those but I found it very difficult to read some of the early chapters when the protagonist describes her ordeals at the comfort station - it's unbelievable what those poor women went through and although this is a work of fiction, it's based on historical facts. I don't know enough about the modern history of Korea, the split between North and South and the attitudes towards the women who were forced into slavery so this was a real eye opener for me - the way these events are told through the eyes of Jae-hee is superbly well done and manages to be both informative and dramatic. I couldn't recommend this book highly enough and it's without a doubt the best book I've read so far this year.
  5. Looks like I'm on the lookout for a new crew. My usual lot have stopped inviting me into games as they've found others to sail with which is rather disappointing. It's not been the same since they rushed through the Tall Tales within the first few days of the update using guides without us (I've only done 6 out of 9). They've even stopped responding to messages now so I've been solo sailing which really isn't what made me fall in love with this game.
  6. Decided to get this due to the recommendations. Only a quid and I loved Narcos so worth a pop....
  7. Not sure about that because he's going to need to spend to get anything out of that squad. And I doubt they'll have much to spend. If he's able to sort the squad out, he'll be a good appointment. Big 'if' though... Also looks like Garry Monk is having a spat with the Blues ownership. It'd be a massive blow for them if he walks.
  8. Norwich at Liverpool on a Friday night. Welcome back to the Premier League, Norwich....
  9. I'm guessing that's purely because we're signing Raul Jimenez permanently for £30m? We've yet to sign anyone else since the season ended. In terms of actual outlay, we've not actually been that high up under Fosun. We've definitely got value for money (we'll ignore Adama Traore.....) as although we've obviously spent plenty, they've not been astronomical fees for depreciating assets.
  10. Saw this on daily deals - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Indianapolis-Lynn-Vincent-ebook/dp/B074ZQSQQJ/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=7JT52E45FTG6QDED5367 I snapped it up - no idea how good it is but it seems to have good reviews. The USS Indianapolis is a fascinating story and a crime how it was ignored, and how the captain of the ship was blamed for its demise. (Just please don't watch the monstrosity of a film about it starring Nicholas Cage, because it's utter dreck). I read a book called In Harm's Way by Doug Stanton years ago and it was utterly brilliant. If this is half as good, it'll be £1 very well spent.
  11. Yes - go to the mysterious stranger in any tavern to start the first one. Also, once you've started them, if you go to the menu and choose reputation, under the Tall Tales section, press 'Y' under each tale and it should tell you where to start - assuming you've unlocked them. I think it works thus: Start - you can only access #1 Finish #1 and you can access #1 and #2 Finish #2 and you can access #1 through to #6 Finish the first 6 and you can access #7 Finish #7 to access #8 Finish #8 to access #9 I've just finished the first 6 so I've still got a bit to do. In order to get 100% completion and get the cosmetic rewards, you have to do them all 5 times and find the relevant journals for each tale so there's a lot of replay value.
  12. Awesome. I played last night so should get mine soon. BTW @mechamonkey - I did Tall Tale #3. I was just going to play one of the ones I've already done but I met a random in a galleon and he asked to team up so he could do #3 with me as it was the last one he needed. I let him because he wanted to commandeer my ship afterwards to join his mates - and we know how tricky that can be to sort out!! So he logged out of his game, logged into mine, helped me with the tale and invited his friend after I left. #3 is a very good one btw - I enjoyed the 'Goonies easter egg' (not a spoiler - when you see it, you'll know!) So now I just have 7, 8 and 9 to do.
  13. Because this show is so rich with information, the 2nd viewing is actually better than the 1st. I picked up a LOT more the 2nd time around.
  14. I thought it looked good, but after god knows how many years, Disney putting Star Wars back into cinemas on a regular basis and various USPs releasing quite unreal single player experiences coupled with the fact this is fucking Star Wars, I was hoping for a bit more than 'good'. I liked The Force Unleashed but I really wanted more than what looks like a reboot.
