    To be fair, he had been mentally preparing for months before the move.

    The Wire

    S5 feels better on rewatch now, since we get reminded of Bunk's “The bigger the lie, the more they believe” line pretty much everyday now. That plot line is no less plausible than Hamsterdam really and probably is a bit optimistic in thinking that people would care about homelessness because of a 'serial killer'.

    that's quick. Clyne and Solanke both off to Bournemouth. Solanke seems to be a permanent £19million deal. I have no idea what fees are reasonable these days, but that sounds pretty good for all parties.

    Does anyone know if the shorts will ever be shown in the UK or if there's any way to watch them here?

    I guess it’s better to be missing VvD at home rather than away. February feels a long way away though.

    Reading up the history, the only thing that stood out was that Æthelred (the Mercian guy) don't sound like he was as much of a weasel or dickhead as he is in the series. I wish there is a bit more grey to him really, he is a bit cartoonish in how unredeemable he is. I do enjoy this show more than GoT nowadays and I am a bit worried Netflix isn't promoting it enough and haven't said anything about season 4. The show wasn't on my Netflix front page, although that might be because I watched previous seasons on BBC.

    Thats the most likely option, or something might happen in the January window, considering VvD is suspended for the next CL game as well. Other than that, I guess the front three will have to snap back into last season’s form and just outscore the other side.

    Great that Joe Gomez signed a new 5 year deal.

    I guess that part came into play with Lacazette's 'goal' against United last night, De Gea only had one hand on the ball when he headed it out of his hands. Burnley's goal shouldn't have stood either way.

    So the London Series pre-sale tickets are up for sale now and they look pretty pricey to say the least. A fair amount of them are at a premium prices. As a cheap West Ham season ticket holder, I know how far away some of those CAT 4 and 5 seats are for football, so it'll be a bit strange to say the least. Still, its a lot cheaper than to go over to Boston or New York and I know my mrs is getting me a ticket for xmas. Still, I'm not sure if these prices are sustainable if they want to do it year after year and it's not going to be Red Sox v Yankees every time.

    I feel there is a bit more blood and gore on Netflix. I'm hope Netflix is promoting properly. This wasn't even showing on my homepage, which was pushing Narcos. I had to search for it. Maybe that's because I've watch the last two seasons on BBC? I'm ok with this level of budget, if it means they can keep it going for longer. They still stage the battle scenes very well and convey tactics better than most other shows. With the pace the story, I wonder if they will have to recast or age people up to keep going.

    It’s strange how quickly it turned around in Game 4. LA seemed to have raised their game and had it in the bag when they went 4-0 up. But every move and pitching change the Dodgers make seem to backfire quite spectacularly. Only Kimbrel can get me that nervous in the 9th with a 5 run lead though. Boston can wrap it up tonight. Hoping for Betts to show his quality finally in this series. Interesting that they are giving this one to Price, and the Dodgers have loaded up with righties against him. He might get the MVP he pitches well again tonight. Otherwise it’s Steve Pearce with his clutch hitting in these games. Edit: Red Sox! Feel a bit sorry for LA for having to host WS celebrations for someone else’s team twice in two years. This is very good Red Sox team though that just steamrolled through some tough oppositions in postseason. It’s good to see the best team win and there are some good narratives with David Proce turning it around; but it’s all quite straightforward for them. Felt like Dodgers lost it in Game 4 and wish they put up more of a fight. Their only moment seem to be that Munch walkoff HR to end that stupidly long game 3.

    It’s always impossible to call what’s going to happen in postseason baseball but I didn’t expect Red Sox to clinch it against Astros in 5 games, and certain ing not for David Price and the bullpen to come up big as they did. JBJ the obvious MVP with his clutch hits, but the rest of the outfield saved Red Sox in all the massive moments. Betts and Benintendi were fantastic. It was all stacked against David Price, coming in for Sale (hospitalised apparently because of irratituon from a belly bottton ring?!), what a time for him to get his first postseason win. It’s as good as it can be now, with Sale getting the extra rest before Game 1 of the World Series. I can’t call Dodgers/ Brewers decider tonight at all. Obviously a lot of people would want a Dodgers v Red Sox World Series. I’m not sure about Brewers and their bullpen game; them pulling starter Wade Miley after one batter was a crazy move though.

    I against Klopp’s gamble kind of worked. We got 3 points, so you have to take that and move on. Still, it’s a bit of a miracle Liverpool is still joint top despite never being at their best; and lucky a performance like this is against Huddersfield. It doesn’t feel the team would ever cut into City’s goal difference now though if they play like this.

    It was just last year, Red Sox got fined for using Apple Watch to steal signs against the Yankees and the Yankees got fined too. So Astros explanation might make more sense against Boston, but they were doing it in previous series too. I guess MLB would never do anything in the middle of the playoffs. Edit after Astros/Red Sox Game 4: Kimbrel is going to give me a heart attack at some point; keeps trying to give the game away but has the power of luck in closing games. The outfield bailed him out multiple times with some gutsy fielding tonight. That mookie throw and Benintendo catch were magnificent. Also nod to Joe West for making that fan interference call. Price to pitch tomorrow. Sale possibly for game 6.
