    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I’ve never seen them so despondent. This has completely crushed them. They’ve been so happy the last couple of weeks. Got the best manager they’ve ever had in the history of their club. Convinced a new stadium is on the way. Anticipating Usmanov is about to pump billions in and have the club competing for the league and champions league. And now all of that has completely gone. They are ruined. Season over in January yet again and all they have to look forward to is watching the likes of Pickford, Sigursson and Walcott flounder and fail for the rest of the season. I’m drinking in their misery and it tastes like nectar. I normally get complete radio silence from them before a derby at Anfield but they were all crawling out of the woodwork for this one. Never seen them so active in the various WhatsApp groups I’m in. Not to mention numerous articles in the press banging on about how Carlo is the only manager to have Klopp’s number this season. They truly believed they were going to win and that’s what has destroyed them. Absolutely no excuses this time for them. They were beat by players who mostly wouldn’t even make our reserve XI. They had the most experienced team on the day. They had the most expensive team on the day. They thought they had a manager who was the equal of Klopp. They thought they’d be knocking us out the cup. They were wrong.

    You’re right, I’m ashamed of myself.

    Didn’t think it was possible but I’ve now got even more reason not to vote for Clive Lewis.

    My Google search isn't working in work, hence the new thread. What do people make of the Clegg apology? Doesn't seem to be getting a favourable response judging by the people I've spoken to/articles I've read on it. Seems to me by issuing the apology he is planning on being leader going into the next election, which is surely electoral suicide? The only slim chance they have of gaining any kind of popularity back is by breaking the coalition and blaming it on the Tories, the longer they leave it, the more chance the Tories will be the ones to end it which will fuck them up even more. It's their party conference this weekend, with a bit of luck he will get loads of stick there. She's obviously biased but Toynbee makes some good points ( and a few bad ones ) here. This was Nick Clegg's chance to save his skin. He failed | Polly Toynbee | Comment is free | The Guardian
  5. I think 8/10 is a pretty good rating? I’d put Boardwalk Empire at a 8.5/10 and this isn’t quite as good so...
  6. I forgot Dave allowed nonces on the forum. Mea culpa.
  7. Things I’ve watched since I last did a review... Succession seasons one and two Believe the hype around this programme. It’s absolutely superb, brilliant drama, terrific acting and funny as fuck which considering it’s wrote by one of the creators of Peep show is no surprise. Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Macfayden and Jeremy Strong deliver top notch performances. I’ve always liked Alan Ruck too going back to Ferris Bueller’s day off and Spin City. Weird fact that Brian Cox who plays his dad in it is only ten years older than him in real life. My advice would be don’t give up after 3/4 episodes as it starts a bit slowly but it draws you in. Season two is also a massive step up in quality on season one. 9/10 overall. The Witcher I enjoyed this, and it’s nowhere near as bad as some are making out on here, but it does start slowly, takes an age to tie the various strands of the plot together and the timeline is all over the place. Saying that, there are some good battle scenes, the filmography is great and it looks set up nicely for a much better second season. 7/10. Mr Inbetween season two Love this show but some of the praise on here is very over the top, for me. It’s not the best show on telly or anywhere near as good as Breaking bad and shows of that ilk. Seen someone say a while ago I think that it pisses all over the show ‘Barry’ and I don’t think that’s true either. Think they’re about the same level with Mr Inbetween being more consistent but Barry having greater highs. The ‘ronny/lily’ episode of Barry is one of the best pieces of TV I’ve ever seen and Mr Inbetween can’t touch those levels. It is, however, very funny, very violent and a very easy watch with each episode coming in at under half an hour. 8/10. Godfather of Harlem Really enjoyed this. Great cast and it’s set in an era I‘ve always been interested in covering the American civil rights movement and the mafia of 60s New York. Not as good as Boardwalk Empire but in a similar vein so if you enjoyed that then this is definitely worth checking out. 8/10. Latest season of Archer. Gone down the sci-fi route for this season and set it in space. There has been a drop in quality in the previous couple of seasons but I thought this was a step in the right direction for getting back on track. Thoroughly enjoyed it and it looks like it’ll be in the normal timeline with the end of the dream sequences from now on. 8/10. Evil Started a bit slow and was unsure whether to carry on but glad I did. Got a bit of an X-Files vibe with a (trainee) exorcist playing the Mulder role of believer and a psychologist playing the Scully role of doubter. Not the best show in the world like and constrained by being on network TV but it’s something I watch with the Mrs and an easy watch while having your tea of a night. Some silly episodes but some genuinely scary bits as well. 7/10. Jack Ryan season two Really like this, it’s nothing you haven’t seen before in movies and TV shows a hundred times but it’s well acted, good plot and looks great. I liked the change of scenery too, moving it to Venezuela. 8/10. The Mandalorian Absolutely fantastic. Much better than the recent films and this is what I want my Star Wars fix to be. Give Favreau the new trilogy. Great action scenes, loads of nostalgia trips and set up well for future episodes. Seems a bit of a waste of Pedro Pascal like since it could be anyone under the mask really but that’s a minor quibble. 9/10. Year of the Rabbit If you like Matt Berry (and who doesn’t?) then you’ll love this. Channel four comedy about a group of detectives in the Victorian era. Funny as fuck and definitely worth a look. The Elephant Man character in it is boss. 8/10. 30 Rock Rewatching these again from the beginning and midway through the fourth season. Fantastic. Jack Donaghy is one of the all time great comedy show characters and season three stars an absolutey in her prime Salma Hayek. 8.5/10. Next up is the BBC version of Dracula and Lost in space season two.

    Don’t think it’s possible she can end up at deputy leader mate. I’m assuming that will be elected at the same time as we elect a new leader and she isn’t running for it. Rayner is a shoo-in for that.

    Agreed, and Starmer does too which is another reason I’m backing him. The likes of Phillips need a unique selling point to differentiate them from the others, seems like she’s picked a mental one though.

    The New Leader of the Labour Party

    Got to remember though everything they say isn’t aimed at the country or even Labour voters in general but only at the membership or people they think they can get to join as members to vote for them. Goes without saying I don’t agree with her and think she’s a piss poor candidate but she’ll be hoping to attract more support from the remainers who make up the majority of the membership and get some of the FBPE type people to sign up to vote for her. Think it’s a doomed strategy personally but she’s trying to pitch to a type of voter the others don’t appeal to is my guess.

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    I’d much prefer Hoever to Williams to be honest. A lot better in the air too which is an area we could struggle.

    Upcoming TV Shows

    New Al Pacino Nazi Hunter show on Amazon confirmed for 21st Feb. Looks good.
  13. Only the first episode is an hour long. The others are between 30-40 minutes except for the last one which is a bit longer.
  14. Good to see Stringy still at it after all this time... thought didn’t Tokyo Joe break a hip recently? Hmmm.

    The Times have done a write up on Phillips that I’m sure will encourage everyone to vote for her...

    It’s Obvious what is going to come as it becomes increasingly clear RLB is a piss poor candidate. He’ll get more shit from his own side than he will from the Tories. Owen Jones is already gearing up for it by saying he should have more scrutiny than the other candidates.
