  1. Yeah. Point still stands doesn't it?
  2. I've always rated Rice, but couldn't believe how he was blowing out of his arse after that one run into the corner. Is he still a bit short of fitness? West Ham were good today. Wouldn't have deserved a point but a lot to like about them. If that new Czech they've bought in can live up to the other two I reckon they'll be a shoo in for European football.
  3. Rob is a top fella, and calls it fairly regardless of his support.
  4. No. They were both errors by officials, and the grown-up thing to to do is acknowledge them, and move on.
  5. Geeat win, away to a good side. It's still a patchwork quilt in the middle, but that'll be a great bus home.
  6. You can set your watch by Moyes overcompensating when there's an overload. Great finish from Lingard but that space was always going to be there.
  7. The way that right channel has opened up, you'd think Sancho would get a chance here.
  8. Would've taken Ronnie off and pushed Mason up top, but not the worst subs.
  9. Wouldn't be breaking those two up unless one of them has a problem.
  10. I had the pleasure of his company a good twenty years back. He was lovely and also extremely funny. Nice to see a lot of love for him on his passing.
  11. Good half of football against a well-drilled side. Grew into it, and the own goal was just one of those things. Bruno, Ronnie, Mason all sharp. Fred and Shaw lively too. Keep at it with the same attitude and they should be alright.
  12. If they're both fit and ready. Hopefully McTominay is.
  13. Read this in the week and would recommend it. Different times, for better and for worse, and a story well-told.
  14. Full disclosure: I really don't rate Villeneuve as a storyteller, and he falls into a lot of his worse habits here. Ultimately it's a couple of passes short of being a very decent movie, but the brainwork hasn't been put in with the script and there's no getting around that. It's about twenty minutes longer than it needs to be (which really mattered to me at its runtime), and there are a few bits of plotting and dialogue that'll leave you rolling your eyes long into the next sequence. There's also an aesthetic choice with the Fremen which drove me up the fucking wall with its laziness. Some of the sound design is nice. Surprisingly, it's not a great IMAX experience as you would imagine it could be. You wouldn't be losing a great deal going to see it on a standard screen. All this aside, if you're the kind of person who rates Villeneuve, you'll probably enjoy it. It's captioned Part One at the front end, and for all I didn't enjoy about it I'd like to see the second half. The story as is ends with ... ...and with a lot of that lousy exposition out of the way, maybe the second part would be better.
  15. I can only hope the organ at his service has big rubber keys. Thank you, Sir Clive, for so much.
  16. Phil did most of that kicking. If you can call it so much - got into him twice and he was in his shell until he left the country. Sad story, Reyes. Anyone who has spent time amongst the locals of the region would know a move abroad really isn't a goer. I was raised amongst them so feel OK about saying that.
  17. If you don't go mental after a last minute winner as a big underdog, it's probably time to find another sport.
  18. John Huston is the go-to here. Wise Blood and Fat City are both excellent books, each shaped (particularly the latter) into exceptional movies. Marathon Man and Jaws, also obvious shouts.
  19. The whole situation with ten men really highlighted how making significant changes to a system is one thing, and the players on the pitch buying into it is another. I really thought he'd take Ronnie off at half-time. It was the right decision and would have spared his ego getting the hook in the first half. 4-3-2, split Martial and Greenwood in either channel, and continue to threaten that way. He chose differently with the back three and it also has its merits, but maybe keeping the pitch wide with the wing-backs ran counter to their instincts to prevent the middle being too open. Whatever, the intent from the dugout wasn't mirrored by the personnel, and I'd raise an eyebrow towards the dugout for not being on top of that right away.
