  1. Alright 😫 Good news is we’ve signed a giant striker from the Danish league as our one and only signing during the window who they appear to be trying to offload. But as we’ve only scored 21 goals in the league all season and 1 since Christmas then he can’t be any worse that what we have!
  2. They seem to have gone full Football Manager with a money cheat on, but they can't buy ANYONE they want so they are just searching for anyone good who is 'interested' then offering all the money regardless if they have any idea where they will play.
  3. Chelsea reported to have bid £105 million for Enzo Fernandez which, alongside the FFP issues, would mean they were paying 10 times as much as what Benfica brought him for at the start of THIS season!
  4. My 10 year old wouldn't leave the house this morning for Breakfast club - this isn't a mis-post to the Things that F*ck you off Thread as its because I booted up the Xbox to download the game - showed him and after briefly questioning the graphics - grabbed the control off me, got sucked in and wouldn't go anywhere until he completed The Dam. So they have a new convert.
  5. What I still don't get with the Super League is why the English clubs would even contemplate getting into bed with Juventus and to a lesser extent Barca and Real. Who was going to remotely regulate this league - and while I'm sure none of the greedy fuckers would be bothered about FPP, etc - how long before it all kicks off because Juve are being dodgy and most of the clubs are having a tantrum because they've realised that you can't all be top of the super league and how come Real are getting the most lucrative kick off times for TV sales and we never agreed to fly to Qatar to play Barcelona on a Monday night, etc, etc.
  6. He was in 3 films in that latest update - but if you mean not enough John Candy is going to be higher up in the list then I agree, but he does appear again later.
  7. Part Five - Films 76 to 50 21 Points (2 Picks) – Films 76 to 74 An excellent three films here. Sam Raimi remakes his first film with a bigger budget and more comedy to go with a lot of horror as Bruce Campbell faces off against the Evil Dead 2 (1987) A live action Paddington (2014) film didn’t sound like a great idea, but Paul King directs Ben Wilshaw, Sally Hawkins and Hugh Bonneville in one of the best, warmest and funniest family films in decades. Matthew Warchus directs Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton in a wonderful true tale of Gay and Lesbian activists from London supporting Welsh Miners during the 80’s in Pride (2014). 21 Points (3 Picks) – Film 73 Stephen Chow co-writes, directs and stars in Chinese action-comedy, Kung Fu Hustle (2004). 22 Points (2 Picks) – Films 72 to 71 Spike Jonze directs John Cusack, Catherine Keener and, erm, John Malkovich in crazy puppeteering, portal comedy, Being John Malkovich (1999).

  8. Got to bring on Troussard surely
  9. I got Milwall’s goal right ☹️
  10. I've got a £1 on us to win 3-1 against Milwall today as my son played down the club's indoor facilities near to the stadium (which were colder than outside) this morning and scored a brace in a 3-1 win so it has to be nailed on..........or not.
  11. @PlisskenI think it was happening anyway, but can’t see how Burnley won’t be back in the Prem next season after that late turnaround against a form team putting even more daylight between you and 3rd.
  12. My son is working his way through U.S Office now and I'm re-watching it on and off. Jim and (to a degree) Pam are no longer portrayed as the nicest of the characters as it moves into the later series.
  13. Inventory though my team was on the wrong end of his magic tonight - not only does he look really good, he also seems really likeable and has a bit of character.
  14. Old manager sacked after we concede in the last minute on Saturday. New caretaker manager concedes in the 1st minute of the next game.
  15. I was going to say his other 1990 film is also pretty good (best film ever), but IMDB tells me that he had a 1/3rd film come out that year called Betsy's Wedding which was written, directed and stars Alan Alda. So now I need to watch it - maybe its better than Home Alone and Goodfellas combined???
  16. Cinema this week The Enforcer Antonio Banderas is a criminal who has a new MMA discount Aaron Paul protégée. Banderas befriends a 15 year old girl who is then TAKEN. This looked shit in the trailers, but I was fine with it being mindless violent shit, but despite it being 90 minutes it skimps on the violence and has far too much plot going on. And had the same cliche occurring twice within 5 minutes of each other. And one of the dafter co-incedences I’ve seen in a film. 2/5 - not 1/5 as there were some nice shots and very, very occasional good Banderas/violence. Dance with Somebody Very good biopic of Whitney Houston. Thought it was going to peter out like a lot of biopics do, but it finished really strongly and Stanley Tucci was really good as her music exec mentor. 4/5 M£gan The trailer gives the whole film away and even if you haven’t seen the trailer you can probably guess what will happen, but it’s well put together, Alison Williams was good as the lead and M£gan was really creepy at times so it’s nothing amazing, but an enjoyable horror toy/robot goes bad flick. 3.5/5
  17. Hudson sacked for us. Not really a surprise after we were terrible against a terrible Wigan side and then threw away the one goal lead we somehow managed to get in the 95th minute after failing to make any attempts to stop Wigan’s injury times attacks. Not really his fault - inexperienced manager inheriting a bit good enough side.
  18. Good job West Ham aren’t very good this season or Chelsea would be struggling for top 6.......of teams in London.
  19. Bale retired from international and club football. Not a great surprise given his lack of games/desire at club level over the last few years and his decline in fitness/performance. I thought he might play a 'goodbye' game for Wales, but I guess it would have been pretty hollow after Wales' disappointing time in Qatar.
  20. That accent/character has meant Craig managed to avoid being typecast as Bond before he’d even finished being Bond. Maybe he will do as many blanc films as Bond films??
  21. A great/crap action hero name for Butler as well - Brodie Torrance.
  22. Its got to shadowdrop today on the last day of Nintendo's Indie showcase hasn't it???

  24. Disney+ is nuts in terms of how quickly films end up on there, I do wonder if having such a quick window from cinema to free streaming is going to bite them, but then I assume most cinema goers either go and see stuff or they don’t rather than deciding to skip Fox/Disney stuff as it will be on Disney+ soon??
