    Football Thread 2018/19

    Not saying Championship players aren't capable of passing football, merely most of the ones we have aren't. I'm. Still haunted by that time Steven Ward tried an ambitious cross field pass against Croatia in Euro 2012, which was intercepted and kicked off our hammering. Generally when we try to play too much football we find other teams are much better at it. But you can look at the Trappatoni era and the football was dire to watch, but we still had more of a goal scoring edge. And if you look at the team sheet, the players were better, younger or both. We've had flashes of decent football under O'Neill but the post Euro 2016 sense of a renewal has just been strangled. I'm totally depressed over it. Who do you reckon could do a better job that we could realistically get?

    More Premiership players, more players only loaned to the Championship from Premiership, generally younger team, in better form and more confident. The under 21s don't look great either, though the teams below are doing okay. Ita not an excuse, it's a hard fact. People can point to Michael O'Neill managing NI, but their results have taken a fairly big dip lately too. There's only so long you can overachieve. Just don't know what we do about it.

    Players are all Championship level though, and many are out of form. Gravity wins eventually. Can't see a new manager turning it around. Maybe we'd get a temporary boost, but the Euros look very far away.

    At least we weren't tanked again. I know this is a somewhat limited standard to set, but it's a start.

    Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    I mean, does it preclude him turning up in Luke Cage or Daredevil? (Or even a "Heroes for Hire") Or is he done?

    Presumably he can still appear in the other shows?

    Nintendo Switch

    PS4 Pro and Xbox One X have sort of shown there's a market for upgraded versions of consoles. I'm surprised Nintendo don't at least test the waters with a limited edition premium version.
  8. It's a bit meh, but it probably be spun out into something interesting. If he'd basically figured out some Force quasi-Immortality, that could be something to tempt people with, and the waiting 50-60 years for revenge might be fun. It's one of those things if they could execute it right it'd be good, and if they don't it's one of those stupid thing that shrink the universe. No in between. But I just would have liked any story. How did he reform and rebuild the Empire? How did he turn Kylo? How come he didn't strike against Palatine if he's seemingly even more powerful. I care about himess as a character, as a thing that influences other characters I care about.

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    The issues that make up The Kindly Ones are incredible. Lots of fiction across all medium fall to ultimate tie all threads together. Here it's magnificent. My favourite art style of the whole series too.
  10. I like this but really wish they hadn't put Sokka in one of the lead roles. It's immensely distracting.

    BoJack Horseman

  12. We're finding it tougher after rolling over teams in the first games. We seem to be squandering lots of chances too. Slightly worrying with injuries.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    It would have made no difference, since TFA is already a soft remake of the first Star Wars anyway. What's another similarity? The amount of moaning about that remains the same.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    It's the absolute worst bit of the film. The CGI is crap, the banter is awkward, deaden the pace and has basically fuck all impact in the grand scheme of the narrative. If you want to reintroduce Han whole communicating that he's had absolutely no character development decades later, the cantina is the literal best place to do that.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Pretty unnecessary too; had they headed straight to the cantina, Han could have plausibly been there with plenty of opportunity to Han it up. Angry Scottish blokes could have burst in there, if you'd wanted.
