    TLW Deathpool 2019

    Seems we missed Herman Wouk.... https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/may/17/herman-wouk-obituary @skend04 and @Thoth not paying attention!

    Hmm, I still need to replace Bob Hawke...

    Liverpool make £8m bid for Wickham

    Hehe... My first thought when seeing the thread bumped was to presume I'd said something about us signing Wickham at some point and NV had found it!

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Now there's one you could have got me with! Would have had me bang to rights

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Considering I was takiking the oiss out of myself with the original post, prob not worth it anyway! Hmm, full back... the only one I can remember going balls deep on, other than those from our academy (Robindon and McLaughlin, yikes!), is Rodruiguez. I have no idea how he is doing, but just noticed he's on my telebox!

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Seems I mentioned him as a potential signing once, in April 2012, on a thread called Leftfield Moneyball Transfer Signings. 'Kinell... I'm sure you can find a better example of a bad transfer suggestion from me than a leftfield option who went on to win the league in a better team than we had at that time NV!

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Think he's retired mate, but he won more silverware over in Seatle. Legend.

    How long ago was I talking about Albrighton? That was probably before I was fully enlightened by data...

    Think Premier League winning Albrighton has done ok for himself!

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I've said it before, but Hirving Lozano would be ideal for us. His nickname being Chucky is reason enough. 2 years ago I was touting Robertson, and if the club has listened to me this time last year, de Ligt would have just ended the 1st year of his 2-year loan back to Ajax after signing for us, and we would be lauding the foresight of the transfer committee, so I am a bit disappointed my calls for Lozano haven't gained more traction round here...

    Where are you watching the final?

    Anyone else in Barcelona this evening?

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    Main changes were Daenerys and Catelyn Stark. The original Catelyn was Jennifer Ehle, who I had a bit of a teenage crush on https://gameofthrones.fandom.com/wiki/Pilot_episode

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    Found out today that they reshot the majority of the pilot, with some characters being recast, and it was filmed a year later. But they included some of the first pilot, which had been shot on film instead of digital, which may add to the strangeness (and changing hairstyles!)
  16. Not sure about finishing a sentence with a comma mate.
  17. I'm a bit of a TV addict, so volume would be a key thing for me. So originally had Game of Thrones and the like, but changed them for trash. Neighbours (haven't watched it for years, but there is over 8k episodes!) Eastenders (Again, don't like it anymore, but a big back catalogue!) Countdown (Nearly 7k episodes! Will keep the brain cells working) Big Brother (Inc Celebrity versions and spin off shows, "David is dead" is still possibly my favourite TV moment ever) Simpsons MOTD TOTP Natural World First Dates Gogglebox (If I can't watch other TV programmes, I can at least watch other people enjoying them!)
  18. Now then, now then...! I didn't like Bruno Brookes either...

    And what about Tyrion's boy band hair!?

    You kill Grey Worm and the unsullied would still have killed Jon

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    Jon was being held prisoner, if the they had voted for Jon to be king, I presume Grey Worm would have had him killed

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    I felt like Jon's accent was different in the last series, even from the one before, but haven't watched any old episodes to really compare. What do you reckon?

    Man City - the new bitters?

    They've just signed a kit deal with Puma for £65m a year (That's all the teams in the City Group I think, but City themselves will get most of that) which they will be able to point at and say that commercial deals are in line with the very top end of the market. And I'm not sure that the Premier League has the same rules about inflated commercial income either

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Hmm, there are 2 main Premier League FFP rules. There is a rolling £105m maximum losses combined over previous 3 years. City have made a profit the last 2 years, I don't think there is any chance of them breaching this. And wages can only increase by £7m a year out of the increased Premier League distributions. Increased revenues from other sources can be used to to go above the £7m mark. Maybe there is a chance the breached this, I dunno

    Man City - the new bitters?

    As far as I know, there is no issue of them having broken the Premier League FFP rules, so I don't think there could be any points deduction in the league.
