    His return is absolutely diabolical for the amount of minutes he's been on the field for us. To replace him you'd just need to find someone who can come in and score a single goal in two full seasons and cough up the ball at the edge of the D every twenty minutes. He can put a shift in when he's annoyed about something, but he's just OK at several things rather than being particularly good anything. Just give some more time to Willock, Maitland-Niles and Smith-Rowe and cash in whilst we can. I don't think this is one we'll regret.
  2. Day 7 - Classic Rock track Was going to try and be clever and pick something obscure, but it wouldn't have been as good as this epic.
  3. I finished the Last Dance too. It's a brilliantly structured documentary, but I felt it got a bit tiresome in the last third, rather than the tension building. The jumps between past and present got increasingly shorter as the seasons went on so that device felt less effective and probably a bit confusing as the contrast became less apparent. The bits that stood out where when you had a lovely bit of background on Steve Kerr for instance, who always seemed like a good dude. That cut through Jordan and a load of other millionaire arseholes being brash like a knife. It's obviously an NBA and Chicago Bulls puff piece, which is fine. With the access they had – which was incredible to see – I wonder what they left out? Jordan is arguably the greatest athlete ever, but his low points were a bit skimmed over to help portray the image he has cultivated of being an unstoppable juggernaut. His baseball stats weren't standout by anyone's standards, yet at the end everyone agrees he would've gone to the Majors? I'm not sure I've ever read anything that suggests that with such certainty. It was impressive he did as well as he did, just leave it there. They go to great lengths to show he was physically nearly done and mentally was exhausted, yet that Bulls team that was being held together by force of will alone wanted a seventh? There's enough evidence to suggest Jordan would prove everyone wrong and do it, but it felt more like myth building that could've been left out. Reading that back it sounds like I didn't like it, but I really, really did. It looks and sounds amazing and it's a great story. I'd be interested to know if Jordan likes the way he comes across in it though. I knew he was ridiculously driven, but I didn't realise what a weapon he was for so much of the time.
  4. Gareth Ainsworth looks like someone that would open up a gentleman’s club in a provincial town despite protests from the local resident’s association.
  5. Lloris offered to drive the coach home.
  6. Thanks again for listening, folks. I've had the day off so popped a few records together again. A scattershot journey through disco, house and techno with some overtly African and jazz vibes and superfluous jungle animal sound effects. All vinyl, all the time.Give it a whirl if you're at a loose end.
  7. That is genuinely incredible, the Mr Spock bit near the end works so well. I think Rick being pitched down makes it unbelievably vapourwave too. You're going to be a mid-2000s mp3 blog superstar!
  8. God, someone stop me. When DJ SS did this he was hailed as a hero of hardcore. https://rave.dj/LUBVu1fx8Ob9xQ
  9. I have to say, I was fearing the worst when it began, but speed garage and Alan Hawkshaw meshes quite well. https://rave.dj/y27zajuvZoCnPg
  10. Day 06 - Classic dance track Cajmere – Percolator There is a fine line between making a row and a work of genius, and that’s never more true than in the world of house music. This is raw like mince and every time I’ve seen it played on a dance floor people will lose their minds. There’s better dance records, but this is as refined as it gets.
  11. Day 5 - classic album 1970 - 1979 Harry Whitaker – Black Renaissance This is probably going to be the most difficult choice, but went for this masterpiece of afrocentric avant-garde jazz. Just two sprawling 20 minute plus tracks of funk, poetry and incredible musicianship. I can't think of any else that sounds like this.
  12. Yeah, it’s not incredible but there’s enough intrigue in each case to make it worth while. I agree with you, the gap seemed eminently jumpable to me. Flip flops are like slippers, if you’re motivated enough then you can get some pace in them.
  13. The new Unsolved Mysteries is a serious vibe for those of us who can’t get enough nicely shot whispery crime. There’s the usual shady doings and a transpirings, then out of nowhere you get a very compelling alien abduction episode. My only criticism is that it doesn’t throw it back to Robert in a bustling control centre or a floodlit airstrip between each story.
  14. Day 04 – The oldest song you love The Jabalaires – Noah The foundations of so much music can been seen here. Still sounds amazing.
  15. Basically any anti-racism hands across the world song from the 70s and 80s would invariably do a quick shopping list of the skin tones they’re not prejudiced against. I think Robert Palmer’s steel drum flecked eternal banger Every Kinda People does this for instance, and he’s beyond reproach. Difficult ones as their hearts are in the right place, but you can’t go around calling people yellow, Bob.
