    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    The more you think about it the show is really a catalogue of Stark stupidity, including the stupidity of Theon and Jon who were raised with the Starks, and how that caused the deaths of thousands of people. As well as his well documented naiveity in his dealings with the Lannisters, Ned should have agreed to help bump Dany off at the start. As well as his general fuckwittery at/North of the Wall, Jon should have jumped at the chance to be King and taken out his bitch. Theon, Rob and Cat's stupidity is well documented elsewhere .

    I thought that the first half of that last episode they were trying to make Jon look like Ned when he was in King’s Landing.

    Good call that. Aus way too short at 4/1.

    I'm only 42 - one of the youngest in that game.

    Played for the first time in 9 years last week at what turned out to be a thankfully very low level. Managed to get the ball down the other end off a short run and had to go in at the end - a stirring 2* from about 8 balls. Enjoyed it. Only bowled 3 overs in an evening game and could hardly move for days. God knows how people play a full day into their 50’s.

    Australia have to have a chance in the WC just by virtue of having an attack capable of having the opposition 10-3. Otherwise England and India are head and shoulders above everyone else. As Sir Roger says, one wobble can cost you and England have form (Champions Trophy 2 years ago, CT final v India, WT20 final just from the last 6 years or so) - that makes picking a winner difficult. The format means the 4 strongest teams should go through. I’d expect that to be India, England, Aus and NZ, but it’s such a competitive event that WI, Pakistan, SA all have chances. I’d expect Afghanistan to win at least once. SL look weak and Bangladesh are pretty unpredictable. England will win if they can avoid collapses - they can defend 325 v most sides and should consistently get 350. They can chase anything. The danger is coming up against Aus or SA attack, being 10-3 and having to rebuild to (say) 250. I’m not sure they have the bowlers to knock a good side over bowling 2nd under pressure.

    Excessively Meta with ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ and Tyrion’s speech Pee-emptying the critics on the penultimate episode - all that stuff about ‘we cheered when she killed the slavers’. That speech was also resonant of David Chase’s rebuke to the Sopranos audience after the last episode for cheering Tony on his way as he murders his way through the series only wanting to see him get offed at the end.

    20 minutes of good stuff followed by 45 minutes of cheese. Not what I expected at all.

    A lot depends on when you go. I really like Lunya for lunch bu dinner there is a different, less pleasant experience as the tables are all crammed together and it gets a bit rushed (at least at weekends). I loved Oktopus too although Buyer's Club is uber-hiptser try hard. A couple of decent mid-range old fashioned chinese/curry places wouldn't go amiss - I'm still mourning the loss of the Mandarin although the hygiene standards turned out to be shocking.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Yep. The thread title is not great. They are a bit obsessed but you won’t be bitter if you keep winning stuff

    Where are you watching the final?

    Good luck @Jarvinja Ilnow - sounds like good news. My parents are visiting that weekend so watching it at home with them and my kids.

    Me neither. How did that work then? I did wonder who he was writing to. Assumed it was probably the various maesters
