    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    Bringing this back to photography, I had an hour at Marble Arch earlier during the Extinction Rebellion protests. Lots of interesting characters about, I'm just struggling with how to crop images. What would you do with this guy? Original RAW file is 6000x4000 so there is plenty of scope to get in really tight.

    It's on the corner of Brook Drive and Hayles Street. Maybe a quarter of a mile from the station if you head towards The Imperial War Museum/Lambeth Walk. The shop is still open. About the same distance again up Brook Drove is this place, though this shop has since closed.

    I'm a total railway/tube nerd (in my defence I have a professional interest) and as a passenger I travel on the Bakerloo line more than any other. I just happened to be at Elephant and Castle recently when I was looking for the shop Dexys Midnight Runners performed the video to Come on Eileen in front of. It's literally around the corner from the tube station fwiw.

    @Scratchy Bollock my inner tube nerd tells me that train photo was taken at Elephant and Castle. It's the only Bakerloo line station with a shopping centre above it afaik. Lovely photo btw.

    EFL Championship 2018/19 - All aboard the rollercoaster

    Villa are on their best run of results since 1909/10. I suspect once playoffs are confirmed, which could be Monday, then the last couple of league games (Leeds and Norwich) will be played at a much lower intensity and with a few of the reserves as we wouldn't want injury or suspension going into the semi finals. John McGinn, who is definitely going to be player of the year, is sitting on 13 bookings. 15 would see him get a three game ban and miss all of the playoffs. The Villa midfield has been excellent in this run, there's been a healthy rotation of four players for three spaces. McGinn, Grealish, Conor Hourihane and Glenn Whelan are all playing well and it looks really balanced. It was assembled on a shoestring too, Grealish is from the youth team, Whelan was a free transfer from Stoke, Hourihane cost £1.5m from Barnsley and McGinn was £2.75m from Hibs. I'm not even sure how much the current team cost us, it's mostly made up of loans and makeweights from other deals and it probably comes in at less than what one Ross McCormack cost us a couple of seasons ago.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Is there a better two footed footballer in the world right now? Son's ability to hit it cleanly and accurately with either foot must be a nightmare to try and defend against.

    Re: Birmingham and Barcelona, New Street reminds me of a third rate Las Ramblas. Brum does have its charm though. I managed to get on a rooftop in the Jewellery Quarter last week and saw got some nice shots. I'll put some up when I'm at a PC, but the sun setting over Handsworth is on my phone. Found it really difficult to get the exposure right as the shadows on the ground really were dark.

    What went so badly wrong? Ipswich finished level on points with Norwich and Leeds last season and obviously they've both been amazing this year, Norwich even lost their best player. I still like Lambert though. He definitely needs a better agent as he's taken some dodgy jobs over the years. In theory he plays nice football and surely Ipswich will be looking to walk league one next season.

    EFL Championship 2018/19 - All aboard the rollercoaster

    Well what the hell do I know? 8 wins in a row in a critical part of the season, Blackburn aside I don't think any of them were gimmes. This week has been huge, Wednesday were hugely motivated to beat us, went 1-0 up and had a penalty but we found a way to win. Rotherham were fighting for their lives and in good form themselves, they had a penalty and a red card go for them but we still found a way to win and Bristol City take on a depleted team and somehow we win that too? I'm so used to crushing disappointment as a Villa fan this really does feel weird. Norwich are up. Leeds vs Sheffield United will go to the wire. West Brom have known they are in the playoffs for ages, the final spots are two from four I think. Villa, Bristol City, Derby & Boro all have a good chance. Mathematically I don't think you can rule out anyone down to Swansea in 11th but realistically I think those teams have too much to do. Hull losing to Boro has all but ended their bid. From a Villa point of view I think we can be locked in within two games if we win both. We've got Bolton away and Millwall at home before we face Leeds and Norwich. I think we send Bolton down if we beat them which I'll genuinely feel bad about but it's another must win...

    Mismatch, but Lomachenko is so damn good I'm not sure there's anyone out there who'd give him a fight at the moment.

    Not great team news at all for Villa. Grealish out with illness, Mings suspended, Hause still out with the knock he picked up at Hillsborough and Kodjia not even in the squad. It's definitely a makeshift XI today and Bristol City will probably think we are here for the taking. Could really do will Hull getting a result at Boro.

    Oooh, if we are doing Game of Thrones: Walder Frey is a member of the Stratford upon Avon Villa supporters club.

    He'll definitely go if we don't get promoted but he's gonna stay if we make it.
