  1. This felt like that game the other season where we dominated for the whole game then Ayew score and Palace took all 3 points. When Benteke came on I assumed that was going to happen again. Shite penalty though. Why Gross was taking it when Maupay, Trossard and MacAllister were on the pitch, I'll never know. Probably had the nerve. Still, not a good result but not terrible.
  2. Derby day! My prediction- Palace to score early and the Maupay or Welbeck gets one back in the 93rd minute which seems to be our standard operating procedure unless we’re playing Brentford this season.
  3. I’m getting to the point where I’m thinking that Bissouma can’t be the guy who was arrested late last year. We would look bad if we let him play and I can’t see how he’d be allowed to go to another country pending a criminal trial. But it’s also possible that I’m underestimating how much money talks. I’m expecting him to go in the Summer probably for less than £50m. Maybe £30m. I don’t think we should let him run out his contract and go on a free.
  4. Digne to Villa is probably good business for everyone but reflects badly on Benitez. There was talk of Bissouma leaving us for Villa particularly as we’ve recalled our Bissouma replacement from his loan early but I guess he’ll be a Summer sale now.
  5. They’re random lengths but the first one is close to an hour. I think they average out at around 40 mins an episode which is still double the length of the original
  6. Discussing this with @X_2_0 who made the astute point that it feels like they’re acting out the anime rather than acting the parts. Good bits - the ships and planets are well realised. Bad bits - Episode 1 in particular takes an hour to tell the same story that episode 1 of the anime did in 20 minutes. Have done 5 episodes now and I’m still not 100% sure what to make of it. I think it has something to keep me coming back but if I were advising someone totally new to it which to watch I’d say the anime. Also cels from the show have predictably sky rocketed in price. Although I appreciate that not many people buy them.
  7. I say this about twice a season but I wish we had Benteke.
  8. I assume this is why Netflix’s ultimate aim is to mostly produce their own programming because whilst distribution has moved on, licensing hasn’t. One of those things keeping piracy alive I guess.
  9. Looking at the lineup, Paramount have NCIS, Rugrats, Beavis and Butthead, Clarissa Explains it All and Daria so if you’re in your late 30s, this 90s nostalgia service is for you! As others have pointed out they also have Lower Decks which could be a huge problem.
  10. Metallica vinyl club 2 is live. It is significantly more expensive than year 1 (about 3 times the price in fact) but might be worth it as an investment. Year one was a disaster in many ways mostly with late or incorrect shipments but I'm going to persist with it for another year at last.
  11. I can't believe we turned around what could have been a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of a very in-form Liverpool only to be upstaged by Palace.
  12. Watched it last night and that was my initial take on it aswell. However, my other half's take was ...
  13. I know the chat is a few days old, but signing up directly to Shudder and signing up to Shudder through Prime are 2 different services so your credentials aren't transferrable. I thought V/H/S 1 was decent in places, the second one was absolute garbage but 94 was actually pretty decent all round. Not a must see but has a load of gruesome practical effects which would have made it a video nasty in the 80s.
  14. More relevant here than the vinyl thread I think, but Nuclear Blast have a bunch of stuff either on sale now or available for pre-order which might be of interest to anyone who likes old Thrash: The first 4 Slayer albums on crazy coloured vinyl "Blind" by Corrosion of Conformity which appears to have been rare and expensive up until this point. "Shovel Headed Kill Machine" (Exodus) - Ditto Usually it's a load of Helloween and not much else but they seem to have a lot more stuff all of a sudden. The 10 Euro shipping fee is steep but a casual glance at the same titles on eBay/Discogs throws up similar (or more expensive) prices and you get tracked relatively quick shipping for that.
