Welcome to the new and improved TLW!

 

Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.

 

If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 

 

Any other problems or questions just let me know.

 

Thanks

Dave

This is a board games collection!

 

I have all sorts in here, from silly games like Fluxx (simple card game with changing rules) and Flick 'Em Up (a Western themed dexterity game where you flick wooden bullets at each other) to serious heavy, worker-placement games like Russian Railroads (building train lines) and Spirit Island (defend your home from invaders).

 

I fucking love games, me.

I dug out my deck of Fantasy Top Trumps which, as any rational person will know, was the zenith of Top Trumps back in the early '90s. You had this deck, you were it.

It's still shit-hot. Though I read that not every deck had the Demon card and if you have the deck with him in it (which mine does) then it's worth about £40-£50. Which is a moot point because I never sell my old stuff.

Yes, I had these. No I did not have the Demon.  That dragon was the fucker to beat iirc.

It's mad because another lad in my school had it and he had the Demon card too. The King is the 2nd best after the Demon, the Dragon can be had on magical power.

Yeah, that's right, I used to be pretty good at working out when someone was rinsing me with it and then I could hit the weakspot and basically clean up from there.

 

edit: actually no, looks like I had the Dragons and Magical Beasts set instead, like what the cool kids had.

 

Reusing art, the cheap bastards.

Season 1 is, yes. It's a brilliant communal experience. Season 2 isn't quite up to the same levels but still very enjoyable.

I'm seriously tempted to buy it, even though it's hard to get someone to play it with. My brother is too goddamn lazy to make the time for board games and it's hard to convince my wife to make the headspace for them in her busy life, so that just leaves my 5-year-old son for now. I can have an absolute blast playing King of Tokyo with him by taking out any card that requires reading text and I can even play X-Wing with him if I strip it back to just moving and rolling. Pandemic Legacy is going to be way too much for him, but he's only going to get older, right? Some day...

    • We won big ears in his first season, not the following season. 
    • No, mate. It was the people that raved about Tiago Ilori.
    • So that explains where the "Becker" comes from. The mystery has been bugging me for a while.

    • James Milner is someone who does not hand out praise lightly, so when he does give a endorsement, you have to sit up and take note.

      The evergreen utility who is in the frame to replace the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back for the next few weeks, believes that goalkeeper Alisson has been the most consistent player for the Reds this season.

      While in the past it may have been a easy choice to pinpoint a specific individual, this season has seen a number of players worthy of high praise.

      Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Gini Wijnaldum and prior to his injury Joe Gomez all make compelling cases, but Milner has a valid reason for choosing the Brazilian.

      Metro reports Milner as saying:

      "It’s hard to pick out one player because everyone in the squad has done so well, not just the 11 who are starting.

      " I think maybe one you could select is Alisson. 

      "Coming to a new league is never easy.   ‘It’s a new lifestyle and you are also getting used to the weather and things like that, but he’s been unbelievable: from how he is around the place, to how good he is on the pitch with his feet and with the saves he makes."  

      Goalkeeping is arguably the most scrutinised position on the pitch.

      A midfielder may consistently turn over possession with loose passes, or a striker may miss a hatful of chances, but one mistake from the man between the sticks and you can bet it will a main point of discussion the next day.

      Knowing the expectation would be placed on him would be high due to the transfer fee paid to Roma in the summer, the 26 year-old has not let him be affected by it in the slightest.

      Even when he has made a error such as against Leicester or Man United, Alisson has completely eradicated it from his mind and moved onto the next passage of play.

      13 clean sheets from 22 league appearances is a superb record, and is also a indication of the overall improvement of the defensive unit as a whole.

       Comparing that with the previous two seasons, the Reds kept just 29 clean sheets during that span (17 in 2017/18 and 12 in 2016/7).

      Milner continued his effusive praise of Alisson.

      "He’s been unbelievable for us this season so far and I believe that he’ll be a massive, massive player for us going forward."

      This topic leads on to a further question. Who do the fans think has been the best player during this campaign.

      Do you agree with James Milner, or is there another player who has caught your eye?
