    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    What weapons can you take? You get one each of all the heavy and special weapons. The Kabalite blaster is great in 40K because it's good against vehicles and dreadnoughts. I imagine the wych special weapons are likely to be great in killteam.

    The kabalite warrior box comes with one sybarite, and the wyches box with one hekatrix. Could you even have multiple sybarites and hekatrixes? They're the squad leaders.

    Adeptus Titanicus is £175. The Warlord titans look amazing, and are a lot bigger than I expected them to be, but that's too much for me. Especially as I never seem to get to play any of the games I buy.

    Pokemon Go

    I can do them fairly consistently now. This video shows my basic method, which I expect you might be using. I don't know what this thing with a circle glitch is, but if it's anything like what I've just watched on youtube, I'd forget it and just do it the old fashioned way by practicing the diagonal throw and work out the release timing. As others have said, big pokemon make it easier, but I've done excellent curveballs on all kind of tiny little pokemon. Not Weedles though, those bastards are impossible. Changing the subject, has anyone had problems with constantly failing to log in or to authenticate when logging in using the pokemon trainers club? My son's account is set up through it, and we keep having to reinstall the game before he can log in. It's not even just on the one phone - he has an old phone of mine that he uses, and recently I've logged in on his account a bit on my own phone to do raids for him on my lunch break. I can log in myself through google, but logging in to his account on any device is always a nightmare. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a known issue? Is there any kind of solution or workaround out there?

    They could have given India another innings and still won without having to bat again. It was one of the most one-sided matches I've ever seen. Apart from Kholi in the first test, none of the Indian batsmen have shown that they have the technique to cope with English conditions.

    Yeah, absolutely. Hopefully he's fit for the next match.

    Hopefully England will win by an innings to really show how arrogant Kholi's comments after the first test were. He said the result set up the rest of the series nicely, which is something you might say if an underdog wins the first test of a series. Twat.

    A lovely interview with Luke Shaw, that. He looked so happy!

    Squeaky bum finish. I must admit I would have quite enjoyed it if Schmeichal had scored that header right at the end.

    Shaw! At long, long last!

    Fred making interceptions and releasing Rashford to use his pace looks a potent weapon.

    Goal of the season so far, I reckon.

    Not signing anyone else is not the end of the world. You can see why we didn't get anyone in. Macguire wasn't the finished article type of player Mourinho wanted to lead the defence, Boateng has a poor injury record and looked absolutely awful at the World Cup. We'd have been paying a lot of wages for someone who could have been injured or nowhere near good enough. Alderweireld also has a poor injury record, and we'd have held to ransom by Spurs. He's the guy I would have gone for personally, but perhaps there are other factors. Hopefully it's not just that he wasn't glamorous enough for Woodward. Mina isn't particularly good, and paying massive agent fees for him would have been stupid. Godin was never going to happen - apparently he was using us to get a better contract. The squad is slightly stronger than last year. We've lost Carrick and Blind, neither of whome did anything last year, and gained Fred who appears to be a very good player, and Diogo Dalot, who provides cover at full back, although I know absolutely nothing about him. We also seem to have a revitalised Luke Shaw, and Sanchez, who will surely be a lot better this season, plus Pereira, who looks a class act in midfield and could be like a new signing if he's given a chance. The defence is a problem, of course. Smalling, Jones, Rojo, and Lindelof have shown no signs that they are good enough, and Bailly is always injured. We haven't got a lot of cover at full back either, which makes the decision to loan out Forsu-Mensa a strange one. The crap defence puts pressure on the rest of the team to play too defensively, which leads to the kind of over-cautious performances we keep seeing. It's a big season for several players. Sanchez has to step up. Rashford needs to be a first team regular and show what he can do. Pogba needs to be a lot better than he was a lot of the time last season - he needs to be allowed to play, and he needs to improve his attitude as well. Shaw needs to get himself into the team and do enough to stay there. He's got the quality, he needs to show it. And above all, Mourinho needs to either get his shit together or fuck off before he does any more damage. For fucks sake for all the talk of strengthening on the pitch, he's the weak link. We could have done with strengthening there arguably more than at centre back. One problem this window is the struggle between him and Woodward over signings. He wants Mourinho players - strong, efficient, unimaginative killer robots to grind our way up the league. Woodward wants marketable galacticos. I would imagine that Mourinho is frustrated with other people at the club making football decisions. I doubt he ever wanted Macguire, for example. In a way Woodward is undermining the football side of things by the way he's doing things. On the other hand you feel that an ideal Mourinho window would have involved Martial and Pogba leaving, and several 29-year-old Mourinho players coming in to replace them. He can't manage flair players. He wants to stifle them, sacrifice that flair on the alter of better, higher-percentage decisions on the pitch. He might be right - he has a far more successful football brain than any of us. God only knows what's going to happen tonight. We'll probably win 5-0 after all this angst.

    That's very true!
