    Agreed @Shimmyhill, since he broke his elbow the season Poch got the boot, he’s been in fantastic form.
  2. Plus Boba hasn’t cried six times in every episode.

    Good result that - I was keeping tabs on the game while out with a mate, and saw that we’d been very unlucky/profligate in front with our chances. I said “This is one of those games which is tailor-made for a sucker punch goal” and sure enough we conceded that jammy deflection immediately afterward. Wasn’t expecting the real sucker to come from us
  4. I haven’t really paid much attention to Moon Knight since probably the 70s, but why is he English in this version ?
  5. They’ve already used a lot of the more logical beats that would have worked in Obi Wan for Mando and Fett, which leaves much less logical ones. A New Hope makes several allusions to him not having crossed paths with Vader since their duel on Mustofar, and Tarkin asserts that he thought Kenobi was dead, so as much as it would be cool to see Ewan McGregor planet hopping and tearing stuff up with his Jedi powers, it doesn’t make sense for him to be doing that during a galaxy-wide purge of his order, headed by a bloke with a particular grudge against him, having also been charged with keeping an extremely low profile and a constant eye on a very important character. Regardless, still expecting Obi-Wan to be the Grasshopper/Incredible Hulk/A-Team character, with Qui-Gonn’s force ghost as Master Po, and Vader as McGee/Colonel Decker, always one step behind.
  6. Arsenal let another player go out on loan to Udinese today too. Do they have players back from AFCON ?
  7. Watched this today @Phelan. Excellent !
  8. Just caught up with ep3 of this, and agree, that chase scene is awful. Jerky and slow. They could all have been driving milkfloats it had so little jeopardy. One thing I thought happened on Mandalorian between watching the US and International releases is that they seemed to have touched up some of the worse SFX from S1, but I might have imagined it. Maybe they’ll revisit this, because it’s Scorpion King levels of poor.

    It’s pretty poor from them, considering they knew four of their players would be missing due to AFCON, and then they let two senior players leave on loan. They have one player out due to covid, and four injuries; exactly the same number of both as Spurs do. Still fuming at the injustice of Lasagnegate when Dein took the call asking for a postponement. On the positive side, we should have our first choice back four, plus Son, along with a few more weeks of Conte’s coaching and whatever signings are made this month, available for the rearranged fixture. Quite a strong statement from the club tonight too. https://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/2022/january/club-statement-spurs-v-arsenal/?fbclid=IwAR2Tm0qPK9xpFo6kgSRcGzO3DwseFLxhbghl7KBQvMXWNawmjBKajYX4T6k
  10. Whilst I agree, and still hold a grudge against the PL for forcing Spurs to play with ten players who were sick in Lasagnegate, to the point where some of them were throwing up on the pitch, it does mean that three of Spurs’ first choice back four, and also Heung Min Son, will be available for the rearranged game, plus whichever upgrades Conte can force through this month, and another few weeks of his coaching. I do object to the ‘covid’ hashtag being used against the postponement, when only one of Arsenal’s players is missing through covid (as is one of Tottenham’s).
  11. Looks amazing @Rumspringa. Have you tried the Mach Loop in Wales yet ? I only just thought of it and haven’t even checked if it’s in the game, but I’d be amazed if it isn’t, and I bet it’d be fun with that rig of yours.

    I saw an interview with him the other day where he said the doctors have told him there’s zero chance of it ever happening again. Not sure if that was because it was a freak occurence, or because he now has the defibrillator fitted though. Weird how two really high profile players have had heart problems so soon after leaving English clubs which have had very thorough yearly screenings for these types of issues since Fabrice Muamba’s heart attack, and had never detected any problems in either player, and the same goes with them passing medicals for two very big clubs.

    It started off as a training offer, but there are rumours a few EPL teams, including Spurs, are talking to him about playing.

    The Spurs Thread

    I’m surprised he’s allowed to play in the EPL to be honest, if he’s not allowed in Italy, but if he is, then great As for having him back, I guess it depends which CE23 we’re getting - the one who did virtually nothing in his last 12 months at the club, or the one who was our most creative player.

    Judging by how little the team ran under Nuno vs how much they run under Conte, I’m assuming the less physical style suited him a bit more. Conte won’t stand for someone strolling around the middle though. Reminds me of the Mourinho/Joe Cole situation when they were at Chelsea. Cole was able to adapt, but I don’t think Ndombele wants to.

    The Spurs Thread

    I was one of those who hoped that with a bit of time Ndombele would come good, but I just don’t think he gives a shit. Doherty is awful, Dele another one who seems to have forgotten what he does for a living. I trust Conte to recognise the dead wood, but I’m not sure I trust Hitchen and Levy to clear it and give Conte the backing to finally replace the quality of Dembele, Ericksen, Vertongen, Walker etc. Last four/five years of recruitment have been shocking, and this window and the summer will be a big test for Paratici.

    Not sure whether anyone was expecting anything else from that starting XI. Most of them got battered by Mura the other week. Luckily the cavalry arrived.

    Keystone Kops defending. Amazingly we’re still in the tie !
  19. That arcade on the main strip that had Sprint has gone now. Knocked down for apartments. The other arcade on the side road down to the beach (Pop Inn Amusements) is still there. That always had much newer games when we were younger. Galaxian and Star Wars at the other place, then over the road to Pop Inn for Operation Wolf and Outrun
  20. My first gaming memory is in a 1976 service station on the way to the Lake District, where I played my first game of Pong. From there to Space Invaders at the local Pitch & Putt where my grandad used to take us to try and get my brother and I into golf. My other grandparents lived just inland from Wells-Next-The-Sea in Norfolk, where there were two brilliant arcades, which we spent a lot of time in over the years, seeing stuff like the original Atari Sprint, Midway’s Gun Fight, a side-on WW1 dogfighting thing called Bi-Plane, Galaxian, Asteroids, Battlezone, Gorf, Bezerk, and my favourite, the sit-down Star Wars cabinet.
  21. Agreed man, I remember the cinematic replays on Gran Turismo and Project Gotham/MSR, and these are poor by comparison.
  22. When I first saw that wide shot I thought it looked like they’d expanded the city into that huge bowl/canyon that features in the Phantom Menace pod race.
  23. I’m assuming the stickers are the ones you get for unlocking Horizon outposts, one for each specialist race type (dirt, road, street etc). Complete all the tickbox challenges and then open the incredibly long race for that particular race type. Once you’ve discovered them initially, the barn finds get taken back to your garage automatically and are ‘restored’ by your mechanics. They all take a bit of time to be ready to drive but you get notified when each one is ready. Then you can go to your garage screen, select the car that’s ready in the ‘Barn Find’ section, and add it to your main garage.
  24. Seems to be really rare to find a 4k telly that does 3D anyway.
