    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    50 shades of grey. The only act of sado masochism that occurs here is the process of having to watch the thing. From female sexual expression being watered down to the bite of a lip, turned on, bite lip, said some sexy, bite lip, trying to be seductive, bite lip. To the male protagonists being a millionaire at 26 because ‘money flows to me’. You know you’re in for a shit ride. If you’re not familiar with the twilight fan fiction of a novel then yes it is this bad. An attempt to bring the girl meets prince story to a 21st century narcissist audience with ‘a kinky’ twist. The kink never actually ever occurring as the author is as oblivious to kink as her one dimensional female protagonist is. The fact that it’s so popular is either a damning indictment of modern society or simple that not many people have ever had a proper fuck in their lives. A close second for me is Failure to Launch and 40 days and 40 nights

    At this stage you have to beat the best so I’d definitely want the glamour European tie of a vs Barca. Win or lose it would make for a memorable tie.

    Neo Geo Mini

    What ever happened to that Xmas edition? Looked much better, apart from the colour scheme. Every neogeo game worth playing is on the Pandora 5 but being a console gamer I’d always prefer the option of a pad for the fighters. They definitely need to release this in AES casing with the 8way dpads

    All very odd, we are in a title race, one point behind, one defeat and some very winnable games coming up. Let’s just enjoy the ride rather than get all stressed out

    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    There was a good article in the Times yesterday taking a deeper analysis of the last few games. Basically the conclusion was that Liverpool are not choking it or dropping off in form as the mainstream press like to say but that in fact they’ve been creating more goal scoring opportunities, covering more distance on the pitch ( for example Man U was praised for working hard in that game but Liverpool’s players covered more distance and put a bigger shift in). Stat wise the team has improved since before Xmas. Giving away less chances and creating more. Over thinking the final ball was the conclusion. But if that gets ironed out soon we should expect a huge upturn in results. My take on the game was similar. Assured and controlling the game in the first 20 it looked like we were going to stroll it before the stop start of the injuries threw the players off the rhythm. Strangely enough this benefitted United as the players were all of a sudden up against a different formation and individuals than they were prepared for. They just were not able to adapt to the unusual circumstances. The recent injury crisis hasn’t helped, but other than Gomez we should be back to full-strength (Firmino?) and hopefully can get back in the flow again. Three points tonight is a must, hopefully the crowd gets behind the team instead of spreading the nerves.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Torres had injuries for a couple of seasons prior plus just wasn’t the right fit for a slow ponderous Chelsea side. The best of Torres was seen when Liverpool played fast counter attacking play with Gerrard just behind slipping in balls quick and early from midfield so he can make his darting runs off the last defender. Torres and Chelsea was just a bizarre fit, Lampard isn’t that player and the team wasn’t going to drastically change to accommodate how Torres plays, neither is Torres Drogba 2.0. It stunk of Abramovich playing billionaires championship manager. Everyone thought it was a bad move at the start and it wasn’t long till Torres felt the same, he never looked the same person in a blue shirt. I’d say at least we got £50m for him but we blew most of it on Carroll...

    Narcos - Season 4 on 16 November

    Loved this just like every other series. Felix I thought was almost too nice to be a Cartel boss until his darker side came to the fore in that final act. I did expect

    There’s definitely an anti Liverpool sentiment on this site. It’s rather bizarre reasoning of ‘I don’t like Liverpool to win because they will celebrate’ well no shit! I think it more shows the average age of those here having grown up in the 80’s during Liverpool’s dominance and thus still retaining a bias against them. Having grown up during the late 90s and early 00s I’d feel the same way about United. I’ve had many a year of United fans being smug every time they won the league and I’d be thinking what have you got to be smug about? You literally only support them because they win the league every year. Don’t understand why people are acting like the sky is falling in, it’s February, only one game lost and sitting on top of the league by three points at the beginning of the season everyone here would have snatched at that happily with both hands. Sure there’s a bit of a funk going on but City’s last poor period coincided with them turning a five point lead into a seven point deficit. We just have to hope that the team pull out of what has only been a dip in form in the grand scheme of things.

    I know it’s all very bizarre, we’ve actually increased our lead over City. Defence has been patched up job in the last two games but now we have Matip back who was solid next to VVD before his injury and obviously Klopp feels that Milner is more able than Clyne in the right back slot. Central midfield is now full of options again after a little injury spell there too. Definitely should be too much for West Ham tonight.

    Arsenal

    See I don’t get this. You’re supposed to support your team yet you want them to lose heavily, damage their champions league qualification chances and thus risk their entire progress as a team over the coming years because an irrational hatred towards some northern club. Even if the club in question was Spurs I’d find it bizarre, that just isn’t being a fan.

    What are you on about? Watching United go from bad to worse will never stop being fun. I miss Jose...

    Never seen ‘Beast’ used in a racial sense, always more towards physically imposing and aggressive players. A player who is able to dominate the opposition through pure physical presence and athleticism, I used to call Andy Carroll a beast back in his Liverpool days as when he was on form, such as his FA cup final cameo, he was unplayable for just that reason.

    Why do we separate "retro" from general gaming?

    I find retro based topics get eaten up my modern gaming thought and the throw away nature of modern gaming when they appear in discussion. Take the SNES mini thread rather than a great opportunity to discuss the merits of a wonderfully curated set of classic games it was basically a thread of comparing them to modern games and hacking the thing. Personally I think all retro based topics should be in the retro folder. That includes reissues of classic games etc.

    On a side note had anyone watched that Sunderland documentary series on Netflix? If not do. It’s like they commissioned it to show them bouncing back up from the championship instead it’s a series of unfortunate events starring Sunderland. It’s unintentional comedy gold in parts but must be so painful for the fans to witness.

    That no one has mentioned Manchester United gives away the age of many one here. For any one who was in school during the 90’s to early 00’s they were the team that brought out the irrational hatred. Apart from nearly everyone supporting them their supporters were oh so smug about the success of the team. You could have defined a United fan mainly from smugness when talking about football and an actual lack of knowledge of football. Then there was the period from about ‘04 to ‘06 with the invincibles and Chelsea’s Russian injection in which United became the third best team in the country for a few years. Suddenly the majority of United fans either decided not to take an interest in football anymore or supported Chelsea. For those of my generation the term glory hunter is synonymous with Manchester United fans.
