  1. *rubs hands together* There's probably a decent book to be written on how to mismanage your top flight opportunity and construct a poisonous dressing room on a budget using us a case study. Siewert was a terrible appointment but he could've been the second coming of Alex Ferguson and it wouldn't have mattered - supposedly seven players were knocking on the chairman's door asking for moves before he'd even taken a training session. Spoilered for length since it's probably not of interest to most: I think that about covers it. Quite therapeutic actually. Having previously had a transfer record of less than £2m when in this division we've had about £50m worth of talent either out on loan or banished for the majority of this season whilst often having to patch the first team up and chuck the kids in at the deep end. Terrifying really, especially since a lot of this wasn't hard to see coming. If we haven't done a Sunderland come the end of the season it'll have to be seen as a big success.
  2. I think this is very wise. I used to work in a record shop.. The arguments we had over genres My records are all on Discogs and arranged alphabetically with compilations at the end but some 12"s that are 'of a kind' (Chain Reaction, Basic Channel, Red Planet, Underground Resistance etc.) are grouped together under the label name. The main thing I worry about with my stuff is insurance since my records are pretty much my savings and I know I'd get fuck all back for them if the house burned down. I've looked into specialist insurance before and always been like 'Eh, can't afford a couple of hundred quid a year on that'. Stupid really.
  3. Yeah I'm sure the loan fee factors in somewhere, but apparently the £5m quoted is 'wrong'. I'd misremembered too, he said we actually made more than we originally paid. If it's £10m or so it's still a great deal considering he's never had any pace so should have a good few years left in him playing at a similar level. His age might actually end up being a weird bonus if he retires from international duty because he was always pretty fucked for us after that. Since we rarely played well when he didn't, our fixtures straight after Australia matches were generally a bit of a write-off. There's an irritating tendency among a lot of our fans to give Wagner all the credit for the good years we had and none of the responsibility for what's happened since but Mooy alone discredits that because Wagner didn't want to sign him and had to be talked into giving him a chance. Incredible really since pretty much everyone in the crowd knew we'd found a cheat code for the Championship within a few minutes of watching him play. There's been a lot of 'thank fuck we've got rid of them' lately but just praise and gratitude all round for this guy.
  4. It's more than £5m (the genuinely 'in the know' guy on our forum says we've recouped the £8-10m we paid for him) but still a bargain. I think it's likely that price as he did right by us signing a new contract so we wouldn't lose him for free in the summer, in return we've probably taken a slight hit on what we would've otherwise asked to get him the move he wants. Slightly surprised he didn't hold out to see if there's interest from elsewhere since he might just end up in the same conundrum again in six months but obviously he's happy down there. If only some of the other absolute cunts we signed in the Premier League had conducted themselves half as well as he has. We'd be in a much better place and they likely would've secured better moves for themselves. A top man and easily one of our best ever players.
  5. After a couple of near misses where I felt much more powerful I got a win with the silent that was weirdly comfortable in the end, even had a nice double strength fairy in the bank which went unused. The watcher seems tricky, is it maybe better to try and do act 4 with the others then go back to that?
  6. Damn. RIP the best fake cheekbones in the business. Edit - re: Sabreman's post, of course.
  7. 11th run and now a victory (?) with the ironclad to go with the defect! It seemed very unlikely at one point, it looked like certain death against the fucking bronze automaton but I had a potion which exhausted every card in the hand, dealing damage to every enemy for each one and I pretty much had a full hand. I figured, 'Well, I'm dead anyway, might as well drop a nuke on the way out' but had totally forgotten the artifact I had that gained me block for each exhausted card. Massive damage to him and just enough block for me to survive the turn and then scrape the win by the skin of my teeth. Not knowing the game very well yet I was a bit wary of taking the runic dome but since just being alive felt like a bonus I decided to give it a spin. Having quite a defensive deck where I was often dealing damage for gaining block it actually wasn't a problem at all until the third floor boss, the time eater who I'd never seen before and had no idea what his deal was. No real choice but to keep trying to play to that deck's strengths and hope it worked, which thankfully it did!
  8. Well played! Really felt like I was going to do this too, I felt mega powerful and the relics were dropping like confetti. I breezed through everything then it turned out what I had wasn't suited to the collector at all. I'm guessing my first real order of business should probably be trying to learn the bosses a bit better and choosing pickups based more what's at the end of the floor I'm on rather than just taking what seems generally useful.
  9. Thanks, I've just had a look and it doesn't seem to quite be what I was after unless I'm missing something? I was meaning more what happens on specific turns. Those times where you're like 'How did I take damage there?' etc.
  10. I bought this a couple of days ago, got my first victory with the defect on the fourth run. I actually felt way more powerful in the previous run I'd done with him and got lucky with two fairy bottles that time around. I'm pretty much shite with the other classes so far, having gone back to them. Superb game. One thing I've wondered on occasion though: is there something like a combat log anywhere? Reasonably often things don't play out quite how I expect them to and it'd be really useful to be able to go back and try to figure out what happened, if I missed an effect or buff/debuff or whatever.
  11. Brutal. You think you have some sort of a concept of just how good the top players actually are but then you see something like this and realise you're probably still way off. Fair play though, SonicFox kept coming back for more. Good example to set.
  12. Not sure if it's a spoiler or not really but the Hollow Knight DLC boss I think I did about all of the other hard stuff in the game but I fuck-thatted out of there after a couple of attempts at him.

    Mildly freaked out at how close those figures are to mine: £19.1k - £31.6k - £52k You don't live in my house when I go out, do you?
  14. Rez, I guess: Dreamcast, PS2, 360, Steam. I'll probably get it on PS4/5 at some point when I finally get around to trying VR.
