  1. Sterling dropped for the England games following an altercation with Gomez. Seems like a sensible bit of management by Southgate and that Stirling has handled it with maturity and grace. Pretty refreshing to see.
  2. That’s not going to be given is it? Football is brilliant, City have had two great chances and a penalty shout and are two down.
  3. We bought Mendy to replace Kanté; Ndidi came in the Jan transfer window. Hoping Vardy will be alright for the next couple of years as his is the only position we don’t have adequate cover in. Iheanacho has been very poor.
  4. Arsenal really are abject. I thought United had become stale but with the exception of the front 3 Arsenal are a mid-table team, they were set up for a draw from the first minute.
  5. The implementation of VAR has been dreadful this season. An utter lack of consistency from game to game. And within games - Soyuncu is pulled back in the area and nothing; 30 minutes later Maddison is pulled back and gets a free-kick.
  6. I don’t really get the complaints. Any game that rewards kill streaks is going to suffer from camping. I get the same frustration with people ignoring objectives in BF as I get in this. Much of my annoyance with the game comes from when I’m playing alone and there is no communication going on.
  7. I even qualified the intention as relating to malicious intention. And said it was foul. And said it was malicious which shows he meant to foul Gomes. Not quite sure how you failed to understand that, it's pretty clear. As for professional's deliberately breaking other people's legs, Keane on Alf-Inge Haland did as good as and ended his career.
  8. It's a foul, the likes of which you see at least 5 times a match. Gomes was extremely unlucky with the way he landed, there was no intention at all - it was cynical rather than malicious. Son deserved a yellow but to accuse him of crocodile tears shows a lack of appreciation and understanding of football.
  9. With every passing game, Soyuncu looks an absolute bargain for us. Cult hero status beckons. Still don't think we'll win this; Palace always do well against us. Especially when I'm at the game.
  10. One of my favourite books of the year Normal People by Sally Rooney is on offer today at £1.29. It’s a novel about a couple’s relationship over the years and how the power dynamic shifts between the two. Really resonated with me and the character development was superb. One of those rare occasions where I can fully appreciate all the plaudits and awards that a book received. Not the kind of book I’d normally buy but was extremely rewarding.
  11. If someone can point me in the right direction, happy to do it. Sounds a bit sad, but the fact that folks get some decent, cheap reading material is why I do it. If I was going to use affiliate links, can it go directly into rllmuk’s coffers? I know that @Mr Tony uses them so maybe he’s the chap to ask.
  12. New monthly deals are up. Here. Full of romantic novels and crime books with names like "Inspector Danger: This Year's Most Riveting Detective Procedural".

Another, if he's your bag, is Way of the Wolf by Jordan Belfort. 99p Who doesn't like a book written by Cuddly Conservatives (me), well here's two whoppers Marches by Rory Stewart. £1.99. And, Kind of Blue by Ken Clarke. 99p
  13. The Dark Forest (The Three-Body Problem Book 2) By Cixin Liu is £1.19 today
  14. In a league with a fair amount of likeable managers, that Espírito Santo stands out ahead of the pack as so eminently likeable is a real achievement. The guy is so huggable. He’s even classy when moaning about referee decisions.
  15. If you go into your room on the ship, there's a large yellow container and you can press Y (on Xbox) to transfer items into it.
