  1. Did he used to go to games with another bloke called Roger by any chance?
  2. Stratford Town are currently managed by Tim Flowers too. Isaiah Osbourne who we had on loan under Dave Jones or Stuart Gray plays in the same league for Nuneaton, Billy Key plays for Coalville Town in the same league. My hometown Banbury are running away with the Southern Premier Central this season, 20 points clear at the top.
  3. As an Oasis fan i agree, to an extent, I do think the sound developed over their time. Noel at least experimented with his last record, which I was think was pretty decent.
  4. His solo work is very safe, for a guy who likes to bang on about "rock n roll" he loves a mid tempo song that just crawls along going nowhere.
  5. Finished The Book of Boba Fett, its ok. Kind of a mess in places. Episodes 5-6 are very good then 7 comes back down to average. I didn't really get the need for the show when it was announced but more than willing to give it a chance, i'm still not sure why it was needed.
  6. Those two blokes giving Trent Williams the bird and he just points back laughing, hilarious.
  7. A lot of work to be done on this team: Openers x 2 Jake Libby and Crawley? or maybe Tome Haines or Alex Lees A new long term number 3 - Malan is ok as a stop gap but he's 33/34? and he's a slightly above average player at this level. Ollie Pope - Is he the new Ramprakash/Hick? He looks to have everything but doesn't score. I'd give Lawrence a go at 6, would have played him at Hobart. Foakes as the keeper, is he going to average late 30s? probably not but we have been spoilt with Stewart and Prior averaging nearly 40. If he can average thirty at seven then that's fine. Chris Woakes can surely now only be picked in home test matches, I don't have the stats but his away record seems way worse than his home record. Leach is a no from me. If you want to play a spinner then play either of the Parkinson's or Mason Crane. If not Root will do in England. How much longer are Anderson and Broad going on? If Anderson is going to play one more summer and then retire(no idea if he will) then I'd say thanks Jimmy but its best for us to look at others. Wood can't stay for long periods it seems. Who Knows if Archer and Stone will play test cricket again. Craig Overton is nothing more than an emergency back up on tour. Robinson has seemingly be warned about his commitment to his fitness. If his pace is going to carry on dropping like it has towards the end of a day, due to fitness, you can't pick him. I think Silverwood has had a rough deal with covid and the rotation policy but has he shown anything to suggest he should keep his job? No. Some of his selection decisions beggar belief in this series. Root I think the time has come to change captain, although its Stokes or no one, as no one else is established and Ashley Giles can go too.
  8. I think they've definitely made strikers less effective or overpowered whatever you want to call it, in the latest update. Gone from being able to score 2/3 on a consistent basis to struggling to score one from 20 odd shots. Corners have gone from one extreme to the other, used to be to score from them(too often admittedly) to never seeing a goal from a corner. Lesser opposition always seem to score one, from their 2/3 shots in a game, very odd.
  9. Wasn't the best when he first arrived, although I thought he got some unfair stick. I think its fair to say he went onto do well for the club.
  10. Just finished the latest series of Cobra Kai, easy watch. It was already repetitive before this, surely the next series is the last. Also watching Book of Boba Fett - Needs more context before I can say if I like it or not. Hasn't grabbed me like The Mandalorian did.
  11. Got Wednesday to the PL, back to back promotions. Wage budget of 295k a week and a transfer budget of £2.6 million. Norwich and Brentford have the next lowest wage budgets £1.1 million a week....I've got a worse squad in the PL than I did in the Championship. Pretty much anyone wants too much money to join. Safe to say I'm going down this year, 9 points by Boxing Day.
  12. So many bad managers. Jewell, Shreeves(non caretaker) and Yorath were never going to succeed the club was in an absolute state. Turner was woeful, Irvine every bit as bad. Pulis was completely baffling the wrong guy completely when you look at the squad and how he likes to play. Jos...I'd probably say its between Turner and Irvine but its hard to separate any of them.
  13. The way The Puritans are playing this season, that could be a banana skin.
  14. I really like Craig as Bond. This film has its moments i'd give it 3/5. I'm not entirely sure Bond knows what it is these days. Its lost some of the charm, for want of a better word and moved more towards Bourne etc.
  15. Yeah it wasn't as if either QB played badly either, well Ryan should have been picked twice actually. The Falcons best weapon is Paterson, Ridley is a good receiver but whether it was the scheme or what he never seemed to get much separation. The Giants under Garrett as OC (He's not the only problem) love a curl route. Saquon, I never believed he was the right pick for the Giants at number 2 and his Lev Bell dancing behind the line waiting for holes to open routine wears thin, when you know that line isn't going to do anything.
  16. The Giants and Falcons, truly terrible teams. A game full of errors and awful play. A slightly below average team would have dispatched the Falcons with ease, a slightly below average team with have dispatched the Giants with ease. A 14-17 struggle tells you how bad these teams are. two awful Olines, two awful defences, two very poor offences.
  17. The Many Saints of Newark - agree with the above, I enjoyed it. Some questions but on the whole a decent film.
  18. Easily Jones's best game since Pat Shurmur was his coordinator in his first year.
  19. Not that I've found, only started watching it, as I have a free trial which runs out this week, before the end of the second season.
  20. Ted Lasso - Didn't think I'd enjoy it but its pretty good. Nothing heavy, a few of the characters are a bit annoying after an episode.
  21. Is that the one where you could bribe the opposition, as well? If they accepted it they always won anyway. Then you'd get the newspaper saying an unnamed manager has been offering bribes
  22. Shang-Chi - 7/10 Decent film. Shang Chi and his dad are good characters, story is good. Pacing in the second half seemed off to me and the final battle, i'm not sold on.
