  1. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12416189/drinking-in-seats-at-football-grounds-could-be-reinstated-as-part-of-a-fan-led-review-into-the-game This sounds like a bad idea and yeah - sure, let people drink pitch side and they will slowly sip their pint throughout the game and not drink even more. The example in the article is looking at a team in non-league, but a packed stadium with people up and down all game to get pints in, getting more and more pissed doesn't seem the way to go especially as the driver seems to be so clubs can make more money. Maybe little betting consoles on each seat as well to ensure its easier to do in play gambling for those in the ground and the club get a cut of every bet?
  2. I guess as long as they don't want to mess with the name, or your colours.......
  3. Reading reported to be getting a points deduction. I feel like Premiership Division 2 is going to raise its ugly head again soon.
  4. I'm watching this now and it's incredible. Sopranos meets Slapshot with a bit of ECW thrown in. Its an amazing story and just really comprehensive it terms of talking heads and footage.
  5. Gunpowder Milkshake (2021) This has dropped on Now TV today and also at cinemas. Karen Gillan and Lena Heady in a very stylised John Wick clone. Good cast and a couple of decentish set pieces, but there is nothing there otherwise. Its 1hr 45, but drags. If they'd chopped a good 20/25 minutes it would have been better. Maybe fast forward to the action bits, but otherwise don't bother. 2/5
  6. I watched this at the start of the week. Its good fun - a 70's style throwback action/thriller/comedy. Doesn't overstay its welcome - nothing you haven't seen before, but its well executed and worth a watch.
  7. I've just brought it - short is right - only 50 pages on my iphone on medium sized font.
  8. Why would a World Cup every two years mean more and more teams get to qualify anyway. They are already ramping up the numbers for 2026 - look forward to 16 (yes 16) groups of 3 teams each. But the Easter Islands aren’t going to qualify if the World Cup is played every other month not just every two years. Wenger’s proposals are So major tournaments every summer and then a month every year of Internationals to qualify for the yearly tournament. Players burn out would be insane and no-one would give a fuck if EVERY summer England were playing in a tournament. It would become like the Champions League in that everyone would Mai my ignore it until the last couple of knockout stages.

    I've finished it today and agree with pretty much all of this. WTF are the Dragon's Lair comparisons in this thread?
  10. I suspect not, but maybe some, a few, one of of the idiots who will be planning to boo their own players on Sunday at Wembley might think twice after those players have been subjected to monkey chants tonight.
  11. It’s going to be fascinating what he does at Man U. The big issue they’ve had under Ole is failing in the big cup games and their game management in them. If Ronaldo is in the pitch and they are one down (or even two down) or drawing in the last ten minutes then he can absolutely turn it around against any opposition on his own. So all Ole has to do is not sub him.
  12. I'm watching this now. Its excellent and the events makes Cantona at Palace look like Gary Lineker giving a very brief, sly smile to the away end after scoring a goal.
  13. I assume Peter's jabbering isn't enough to make Strange mess up a powerful spell as otherwise he wouldn't have him anywhere around while doing so. I reckon he does the spell at the same time the end of Loki is taking place so it appears to be Peter, but its actually events elsewhere. Edit: Didn't notice DeciderVT gave a better explanation.
  14. Dialogue was very ropey and probably falls apart if you think about it for more than ten seconds, but I did enjoy this as the premise was good and it didn't overstay its welcome bar
  15. Really enjoyed this as did my kids. Didn't feel too irresponsible letting my 8 year old see it as the language isn't too bad and, as mentioned earlier, the very few sexual references went over their heads. its good fun and pretty decently paced.

    I played a bit last night and more this morning and I'm enjoying it. Maybe I'll get annoyed with it soon, but at the moment its a thumbs up.
  17. Can't say I'm looking forward to Saturday - Milwall at home in August with a 3pm kick off may not be the best idea given numerous other clubs fans having scuffles in the last couple of weeks so if our idiots and there idiots are feeling nostlagic it could be trouble. Plus Rowett taking shit about taking the knee this week as well. And the club has still not sent out season tickets so everyone had to go digital for the first game meaning ridiculous queues to get in despite the ground being half full and same again for this game (and the next one).
  18. Its got a Pokemon Go type game thing. Its sounds much, much worse than I'd imagine. The perfect mix of IAPs in mobile games to get nothing mixed with the promise of making millions by being some sort of crypto bro mixed with fan loyalty.
  19. Its ridiculous - finally there is a way for fans to make their feelings known as long as they buy some tokens with some crypto and they don't have to be fans of the club and someone might have 500 tokens and can easily influence the result. A poll on the local newspaper's website that could be voted on multiple times and easily hijacked by rival fans is probably about as 'democratic'.
  20. From that Fan token article. I mean fair play - Socios aren't pretending they give the remotest shit about fans raising concerns and good old Arsenal are warning people not to get into debt. What a fucking grubby shitshow.
  21. Just watched this and enjoyed it. Hard to go wrong with time loops. It had some good action and humour. Thought ending was fine. It’s no Palm Springs, but it’s still decent.
  22. I'm taking my 11 and 8 years olds to this - I expect its a 12 closer to a 15 than a PG, but my 8 year old is gaming mad so who cares if he learns a new swear word.
  23. I don't have a photo, and I share the concern about reopening stadiums without restrictions, but it was nice to be back watching Cardif on Saturday. Ground was only half full (if that as they count season ticket holders regardless), but as we sit (stand) in the area that is almost 100% season ticket holders then it felt completly 'back to normal' as bar one of my mates, everyone who sits in front, behind and to the sides of us since we moved from Ninian Park were all there - soe of the teenagers appearing to have aged 10 years in the 17 months we'd been away. There was a sobering two minute silence as pictures of fans who had died flashed up on the screen, a lot of Peter Whittingham chants and the majority of fans got to enjoy mocking the Barnsley fans about the events at Wembley last month. On the pitch, it was a pretty poor game and it was pointed out in the last 11 competitive games (Saturday and 10 before March lockdown 2020) in front of fans in Cardiff - we've drawn 8 of them (9 if you count an FA Cup game which we then lost on penalties) so it really did feel like back to normal. The weirdest moment was Kieffer Moore coming on the pitch as sub as it was the first time anyone had seen him in a Cardiff shirt. League Cup on Tuesday should be a bit more spaced out as I can't see more than a few thousand attending.
