  1. It was such a poor bit of goalkeeping I presumed Hennessey had been subbed on.
  2. Was hopeful for our game against Palace. Just seen that Jon Moss is reffing and he always makes abject decisions against us. Concerned.
  3. It was pretty inappropriate on release, the video is a bit lechy and some of the lyrics are a bit much. Definitely not one to listen to in public.
  4. I appreciate the concerns about digital prices but can’t understand why more people don’t gameshare. I’ve shelled out £50 for Cyberpunk and in return my friend paid for TLOU2. Get each game on release, for £25 each. It’s an absolute doddle to set up too.
  5. Mark Haddon's The Porpoise is 99p today only. Been looking forward to this for a while. INVEST.
  6. It's the utter inconsistency of those running VAR that infuriates so much. If it takes more than 30 seconds to decide, with the benefit of multiple camera angles, then it's not a clear and obvious error.
  7. We do look utterly one-dimensional at the moment. The only way I can see us getting anything out of this game is if they have about 4 players sent off.
  8. We have been pretty dreadful since we returned. I'm not sure how taking 2 and a half minutes to decide a penalty can be seen as a clear and obvious error though. Ho hum.
  9. The spices will be fine for 12-18 months. Obviously the fresher it is the better. But if they’re sealed they’ll be fine. The seeds last for 3-4 years, so no issues there. I do a lot of home cooking so I’ll get through those spices easily.
  10. 1Kg peeled white onions (halved) £1 Sliced 1/2 Red Bell pepper 40p 1 chopped Green finger Chile 20p 1/2 sliced carrot 10p 60ml Vegetable oil 10p 1 tin good quality Plum tomato's 80p 50g coconut block (KTC) 40p 125g sweetened condensed Milk £1 50g Garlic (just peeled) £1 50g Ginger £1 2 teaspoons turmeric powder 10p 1 tablespoon tomato puree 20p 2 teaspoons Coriander powder 10p 2 teaspoons Cumin powder 10p 2 teaspoons Paprika 10p 2 teaspoons Tandoori Masala powder 10p 1 teaspoon salt 2p 100g White Cabbage 50p 1/2 small potato (leave skin on) 5p Handful of Red Lentils (~40g) 15p 30g fresh Coriander (leave stems in as well) 50p 1 or 2 teaspoons of Butter Ghee (EAST END) 30p 3 Bay Leaves Free 7 Green Cardamoms 20p 4 cloves 5p 2 teaspoons small Black Mustard seeds 20p 2 teaspoons Fennel seeds 30p 2 teaspoons whole Corriander seeds 20p 2 teaspoons Cumin seeds 10p 1/2 Star Anise 10p Small piece of Cinnamon bark 5p It's less than a tenner for me and I'm been fairly liberal with the costings, so probably a bit lower than that. I buy most of my Indian spices from here. I spent £40 on herbs and spices last month and that will sort me out for 18 months or so. If you can afford the initial outlay, you save lots of money in the long run.
  11. Just a head's up. If you don't mind using cookery books through the Kindle app then it's 99p this month. Here.
  12. Some books. Cheap. 99p Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson Ellis and John Present The Holy Vible by Ellis James and John Robins Dirty Vegan by Matt Pritchard The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis Patter Recognition by William Gibson If Nobody Speaks Of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor RHS: The Little Book of Bonsai I Think You'll Find It's A Bit More Complicated Than That by Ben Goldacre Who Rules The World by Noam Chomsky Caging Skies by Christine Leunens The Science of Discworld by Terry Pratchett The Climb by Chris Froome The Trial by Franz Kafka The Wandering Earth by Cixin Liu Perdido Street Station by China Mieville The Mixer by Michael Cox Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce On Fire by Ben Stokes Black, Listed by Jeffrey Boakye Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly What If? by Randall Munroe Brave by Rose McGowan Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes Planets by Brian Cox The Book of Eli by M. R. Carey Dominicana by Angie Cruz The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak The Girl Who Lived Twice by David Lagerkrantz The Color Purple by Alice Walker £1,19 The Aquariums of Pyongyang by Kang Chol-Hwan £2.49 Lanny by Max Porter £2.59 Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain £3.29 This Is Not Propaganda by Peter Pomerantsev If you like cookery books, then there's some excellent ones at 99p including Persiana, Feasts and Indian Restaurant Curry at Home.
  13. The Iain M. Banks is definitely The Algebraist. The Asimov is Prelude to Foundation. Handmaid's Tale is on there. Aldous Huxley's Brave New World as well. She's got quite a few Sue Townsend 'Adrian Mole' books on there. Jonathon Coe's 'The Rotter's Club' She also has this, which is rather lovely.
  14. That's how I feel about the rest of the season, after the way Leicester have returned.
  15. The risk/reward is it all going wrong and being spotted then swamped by enemies vs conservation of resources. You discern how beautifully planned and executed the kill is by whether their body is discovered whilst you’re still trying to stealthily take down the rest. There are at least 20 occasions where you have the opportunity to make the most of the stealth options. Anyone can take 1/2 enemies out stealthily but it takes really sound planning to wipe all 5/6 of them without alerting anyone. I think what you miss from watching and not playing this, is the fairly relentless tension which ratchets up the importance of stealth and the risks of getting it wrong. That is partly governed by the difficulty level. Let’s all keep things civil in here as well. I’m partly saying this out of self-interest; I was certain I’d give this 10/10, 10+ hours into the game and now I’m not so sure. When I complete it, I’m going to read through those critical reviews and see whether their views resonate with me.
