  1. Having never heard of it before I gave The Detectorists a go after reading the previous page. Got through the first series in 3 nights and now I'm looking forward to the rest. Wonderfully pleasant viewing.

    The New Cricket Thread

    In the event of a draw the team with the most boundaries across the whole day wins, which was England.

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    After watching for 8 years and at one point being quite invested in the world and its characters, the finale managed to evoke about as much emotion in me as reading the instruction sheet for the toilet seat I fitted on the weekend. Actually, probably less because I had a moment of panic on Sunday when I thought I was missing one of the plastic stoppers, whereas Game of Thrones just had me wondering how long was left and whether or not it was worth opening the packet biscuits in the cupboard (I didn't but the internal debate was more intense than anything happening onscreen).

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    There's a world of difference between adapting existing material for TV (even if it involves adding the odd original scene or changing a few details) and having to create an entire third of the story yourself from scratch. Prior to this the biggest writing gig either of them had ever held was Wolverine Origins, which is widely considered the worst X-Men movie and one of the worst super hero films ever made. That's the level of writing we're getting now. We've gone from an acclaimed novelist to a pair of unacclaimed Hollywood screenwriters and it shows. They can still produce some big budget, visually spectacular action scenes but the writing, world building and character development has gone to complete shit.

    Barcelona (A) Champions League 1/5/19

    Get Wijnaldum on at half time, we're missing his presence in the side.

    New HBO Series: Game of Thrones

    They've got a brilliantly established set of characters and lore, as well as an enormous budget to support them so it's still entertaining but it really is just a lot of mindless, nonsensical action, with the only motivation of anyone in it at this point being "what would make for exciting television?" I've no doubt that if the books had stopped just before Ned got executed, we'd have seen Arya jump up and save him at the last second and then the two of them battle their way to safety, killing dozens of soldiers in the process, with every ad break fading out on their certain death, only to resume with them having miraculously survived and continuing to carve through the enemy.
  7. Shortly after they implemented the rules banning all discussion of a match while it's being played, a few flagrant rule breakers posted in the Dirk Kuyt thread, commenting on a goal he'd just scored. Before the mods had time to delete the posts and lock the thread I tried to restore a bit of order with a comment along the lines of "pack it in lads, what do you think this is, a football forum?" and received the following message next time I tried to log in: Thankfully their permanent solution was to limit all match chat to a locked, stickied thread for the mods to post in and the plebs to read, so my ban hasn't prevented me from enjoying it to the fullest.

    Summer 2018 Transfer Thread

    It's odd until you remember that 99% of transfer rumours are made up bollocks and this one almost certainly falls into that category.

    Mr. Klitschko, Mayor of Kyiv

    Reckon we should host a celebrity boxing match between the mayor of Kiev and the mayor of Liverpool to celebrate the event.

    Someone's having a real laugh - shitcoat to Utd.

    That's some achievement considering he was playing for Ajax at the time!

    Other football - 2017/18 edition.

    Players only sign these long term deals because they know they can get out of them, otherwise they'd all be demanding one year rolling contracts.

    Tottenham at Anfield, February 4th 2018

    https://gfycat.com/pl/gifs/detail/GiftedSnivelingChameleon Watch that at .25 speed. He undeniably kicks him in the calf.
  13. What's the point of bringing Ox and especially Wijnaldum on? Surely Ings and Solanke need minutes considering our lack of attacking options.
  14. I think these might be the worst team I've ever seen us play in a league game.
  15. Am I being harsh if I say Karius looked fucking terrible there?
