    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    hmm, that looks suspiciously like something from Special Delivery Service. Original boxy thing or go home!

    Greendale! Is Postman Pat's van going to be in this?

    Man U are Adidas, FWIW. Maybe they're just as bad, they're the 'big two' I suppose.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I love this world cup concluding article by Jorge Valdano. Always interesting to hear from a non-English point of view and he has a beautiful turn of phrase at times, along with some pretty convincing analysis and predictions. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/jul/16/russia-2018-claustrophobic-football-crowded-tiki-taka-world-cup

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I know we're all clowning and reading your message as badly for you as possible but I just want to go on record (sorry) as laughing at this bit too, '19 goals in 29 appearances' sort of suggests he already is, that's a pretty hot ratio for internationals. Anyway, as you were. I think even in games where he didn't score or have many chances (especially Colombia) he was a key reason England didn't lose, he used possession so well and drew so many fouls. I'm sure there's still room for improvement as he approaches his peak age. He's definitely not as flashy as the kinds of player Real Madrid and Barcelona go after, sure.

    Pretty sure Euro 96 wasn't outside England, @neoELITE These stats'll fit anything with a bit of work.

    Cardiacs - the best/worst band in the world ever

    @catinthehat it's hidden due to I guess [POSTER X WHO STARTED IT] doing the GDPR disappearing act. Though as that goes, now all his posts look like they're written by 'Guest' so it should be able to come back. I don't seem to have the power now I'm committee instead of mod, or maybe there's more to it and we first need to assign the first post to somebody else. Anyway, it's not lost and we can sort it out I'm sure, but maybe not me at least while I'm on this train with intermittent signal. I'll raise it with the tech team.

    My distant but maybe closer-than-most understanding is that they were pretty relaxed about the FA/PL letting them do this but it's a complete no-no with UEFA so they had to be sorted in time for the CL. First round of that is just after the first league game in the new stadium if I remember right (depending on if they're home or away first at least).

    Or the ICC champions trophy, which is already meant to be the tournament for top teams only. It is true that the last world cup dragged on too long like, I just think the format was more to blame.

    That was a lot to do with having too many/too long group stages though, they could've restructured it and cut fewer teams I think.

    I'm sure it's overrun for all sorts of reasons including that - I mean, you must write some of that into your planning for a start, but there were legal issues delaying loads of it for one thing. Once it was late starting they ran all sorts of things concurrently that originally weren't, I'm sure it's impossible to do in 'textbook' fashion.

    Just about any aspect of responsibility there seems mind-bogglingly complex to me. I suppose there must be very robust procedures and delegation. Any site like this is pretty well locked down and requires PPE and all that, but the coordination needed to have work taking place that doesn't get in the way or endanger other things, all the different companies in there doing their stuff. Hats off to whoever does that, when I'm in the green zone and able to remove it that is.

    a no-prize to you sir. Well done. It's quite an impressive place and absolutely thousands of people (well, 3000 by day, 500 by night) working on it, seems crazy busy.

    nah, I don't really go on about it as it's pretty boring (like, I suppose, most jobs when you get into the exact detail of what goes on) - I do lots to do with the animated advertising you see around the pitch.
