    Aye the end game is a bit naff. It's all about dexterity, rather than precision or reflexes as in most shooters. I'm terrible at fighting games but this is the closest thing to it in the shooter genre for that kind of skill. H1Z1 isn't much better either though; interactions are really janky and the end-game is just cars doing donuts because they have near unlimited fuel and can soak up a lot of damage.

    Good news, Fortnite is getting a long overdue revamp in game balance: https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/news/counterplay-and-play-styles Building dominance is one of the biggest reasons I don't bother with it, this could tempt me to jump back in once available.

    It's timing isn't it, really off-putting at first, but in reality you can get PI with your eyes closed.

    That white kit looks really nice and adidas are great for kits. Although, that sponsor's logo needs a bit of work. The 'W' looks cool but 'W88' underneath just looks lazily tacked on.

    I said that the other day, I reckon referees have been told to give the benefit of the doubt and that is compounded with the introduction of VAR.

    Jump in for these rounds fella, it's not too late. I had a pityful attempt in round 1 anyway.

    Aye that Henry Winter doesn't paint himself well at all, especially with the Panama comment at the end. Alladyce just comes across as the saltiest bag of sour grapes of any individual I've came across. Funny the comment about Hoddle being more talented than some of the England squad. In Paul Merson's book he says that if his fitness levels would have allowed it, Hoddle could have easily walked into the first XI. Another story he mentions is about Scholes and Beckham practising free kicks against Seaman. Both of them struggling to hit the net after numerous attempts. Hoddle stomps over, puts the ball down and cracks it into the top corner on his first attempt So many ties to Middlesbrough though... • Southgate was Boro manager as we slowly descended towards relegation with a 29% win record but did manage to chalk up an 8-1 win against Sven-Goran Eriksson's Man City • He inherited the job after having appeared for the final time as a player in the 4-0 Europa Cup defeat to Sevilla, under McClaren as Boro manager, when he left for the England job. • Boro had been playing European football which was originally on the back of a League Cup final success against Alladyce's Bolton. • McClaren came in shortly after Bryan Robson was relieved, who had Venables by his side for a short time to stop the rot after the millennium. • And obviously, the greatest manager never to have managed England, Brian Clough, was born and raised in Middlesbrough.

    Apparently Black Ops III is free on PS+. Get on that, about 50GB download though. Best Call of Duty game of this gen.

    I'm not overly convinced on the Boro kit (disclaimer: I never am): The story here is that the last time Hummel were the club's sponsor in '86, we were on the brink of liquidation and fought back against it with a legendary team (Pallister, Mowbray, Pears etc) and that's why Slaven is in shot on the left. Not a big fan of the sponsor being in black, it makes it look like something from Formula 1 - reminds me of the 888.com season. The long sleeve kit looks skin tight too which isn't really in tradition with our kits either. The Away kit though is really growing on me. Again, it's not what you'd come to expect from Boro but the Black/Blue combo is lovely. Hopefully, Gibson and Adama are staying given that they were all over the marketing stuff.

    Lots of good comments in this thread, but this is my favourite. If both teams play like they did against Iran and Morocco, they could be pushing for double figures goal difference.
