    I quite like Warnock. He used to write a decent weekly article in The Independent where he’d waffle on about great sausage rolls he’d bought, taking the bins out, family days out which his kids definitely hated and endless Yorkshire. Was quite endearing, then you’d get to the last paragraph where he’d declare a fatwa on Lee Mason. Was gloriously unhinged whilst being quite twee. Wouldn’t say he was one of life’s great thinkers.

    Watched Close. Reminded me of The Hotel Manager, in style, location and some elements of the plot. A few decent scenes aside, it doesn’t amount to a whole bunch of anything, really. Naomi Raapace was decent as a bodyguard but the rather hackneyed and hole-filled plot let her down. Not one to seek out unless you like Raapace, Morocco or danger rooms.

    Jota may well have just done us a favour there. Oh well, cracking game; no shame in losing in an entertaining way at least.

    Never doubt Big Wes; I’m ashamed. A draw would be a fair result, both sides have been decent going forward.

    I love Big Wes but he looks like he’s running in treacle and has the turning circle of an aircraft carrier. Good old game but our defence has looked diabolical all game.

    I don’t understand Puel at all. Plays 3 defensive midfielders, at home, against a struggling Southampton. Then uses 2 defensive midfielders, away, against a fairly buoyant Wolves. I don’t want to see the guy sacked, but I can’t figure out why he didn’t even try to get somewhere in the FA Cup when we only needed 2 wins for safety. (Although a Prem reserve team should really have won against Newport).

    Great scenes in disappointing movies

    I read the book before I'd seen the film and preferred it. It's a decent. movie, but wasn't quite the film I thought it would be; there's a fair bit of plot deviation.

    Got to love Puel's commitment to defensive solidity by playing 3 defensive midfielders against Southampton. So glad I missed the game.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    I loved this song when it came out. Loved it even more when Badly Drawn Boy included it on Magic in the Air.

    I remember being utterly flummoxed by this in the cinema.

    Must say, I'm rather partial to this.

    The Fulham penalty decision at the weekend shows that VAR gets it wrong.

    TBF to Hennessey, judging by his performances for Palace he rarely has much control over his arms.

    Things that all games should have

    I liked what they did with Assassin’s Creed:Origins by giving you the discovery tour. I purchased the game just so I could use it with the youngest when they move onto learning about Ancient Egypt. More of that type of thing please.
