  1. Football Season 2019-20

    Yeah, seems like it's over now. There are 12 points for Villa still to play for and we're 7 points from safety - things are looking pretty bleak and it'll surely be terminal if we don't beat Palace tomorrow.
  2. Football Season 2019-20

    @LazyBoy That's the most baffling thing, you would think that having one of the most decorated centre backs in English football history as your assistant manager would afford us some solid defensive coaching but it's probably the weakest part of our game. Dean Smith was a centre back himself, although he played at a much lower level than Terry, so he should be capable of providing some words of wisdom to the defence but we just seem to be a bit directionless at the back. We've looked more solid since the restart but we're still leaking too many goal and making too many individual errors, lack of defensive cohesion has definitely been the biggest disappointment for me. West Ham look like they've sewn up the 3 points at Norwich already but Newcastle are keeping Watford within sight. It looks like it's only going to be one of Watford, Bournemouth or Villa now that can stay up, best case scenario for Villa is if West Ham pull clear by beating Watford in midweek then we should stay up with wins at Palace (or Everton) and West Ham but it's going to be pretty close to the bone. I'm not sure I'd be able to handle the stress if it was still up in the air going into the final day, last time we got relegated we were so far adrift it was pretty much all done and dusted by Christmas - there was no drama whatsoever, no hope to cling on to. At the moment it feels like we're in limbo just waiting for other results to decide our fate, we need to grab the games by the scruff of the neck and put it in our own hands again.

    I'm still crossing my fingers that we can pull clear but it's hard to stay optimistic given our trouble scoring recently. Being relegated wouldn't be so bad if it didn't mean losing Grealish, McGinn and Mings (and a handful of other promising players) but they will all be on their way to other clubs if we don't stay up. Would absolutely prefer for West Ham and Watford to go down instead of Villa and Bournemouth. It is entirely possible that neither of the London clubs get any points (other than a point a piece when they play each other next week) and that Villa and Bournemouth can sneak past them with two wins but it would take a lot of luck for things to pan out that way. Palace don't seem to have anything to play for now, same goes for Everton - the defeats to Liverpool and United don't really change the outlook much for Villa as long as we can get wins against Palace, Everton and West Ham then it's still in our hands.

    Feeling pretty pessimistic about Villa's chance of survival at the moment. Even taking the harsh penalty decision into account we just look completely dejected. Tonight was always going to be tough, it would be a complete bonus to even get a point, but it doesn't fill me with much hope for the key games we've got to come. If we don't beat Palace on Sunday I can't see us staying up.
  5. General Switch Discussion

    Yeah, the reports simply said it won't be a prominent fixtures in Nintendo's future plans. Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp are still decent earners for them so there is no way they are going to cut off support for those games immediately, it just means that in future Nintendo won't be releasing games that are based around gacha mechanics and microtransactions.
  6. Football Season 2019-20

    Chelsea's defending was fucking appalling. I was hoping they'd do Villa a favour and smash West Ham - never expected them to lose.
  7. General Switch Discussion

    I've never taken advantage of it myself because I prefer to buy physical copies but it's still disappointing news. Apparently Sony have been doing it for a while so there is precedent for it, doesn't make it any less shitty though
  8. Skin Colour, Races and Racism

    If you don't believe institutional or systemic racism exists then you clearly haven't heard of the Windrush scandal, or read up on stop and search statistics. Systemic racism is still very much a problem in the UK.

    Would be great if Klopp could give the kids a run out again against Villa, you can afford to drop a few points and still break City's points record and Villa could do with a win. It really isn't much to ask.
  10. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Phyllis! Of course, I thought I'd got it wrong but Nelly was the only other name I can think of. In a way I think I prefer then rolling out content this way, means there should always be something different to look forward to. They just need to keep them coming regularly, with the game selling the way it is there's no reason why they can't continually invest in its development and let the game grow over time. Nintendo's trend for cutting off updates after a while definitely has me worried though, the way they advertised the final Mario Maker update and the final Splatfast and ARMS party crash leads me to believe they'll do similar with New Horizons. I suppose the lack of microtransactions in those games meant that profitability falls off a cliff after a while but neither of them have been as big of a hit as Animal Crossing so I think it's possible that they support it beyond the first 12 months.
  11. Animal Crossing: New Horizons (March 2020)

    Glad to see swimming return, always thought it was weird that they cut that ability out. I just wish they would give Isabelle and Tom Nook a bit more to do, they should bring Pelly and Nelly back to work in the town hall and give Nook and Isabelle some time off. One dream I've always had for Animal Crossing is for Nook, Blathers et al to be active outdoors more and have their own houses - it would go a long way to making it feel more like a living world.
  12. Star Wars Squadrons

    This EA Play is already much better than any of the E3 conferences I've seen of theirs. Not having a live audience component definitely benefits them but they seem to have finally learned some lessons too. EDIT: EZA seem pretty down on it, I didn't give it my whole attention but it seemed like it was better than usual but the end of the presentation was definitely super weird and underwhelming.

    Apparently Nyland and the post aren't in love, they're just friends. Sky reported that the goal decision system just wasn't working correctly in the first half, VAR should have intervened and given the goal but for some reason they didn't. Very odd.
  14. Football Season 2019-20

    Nyland is a genius, got away with scoring an own goal by hugging the post and fooling the technology Even as a Villa fan I'm appalled that Sheff It's weren't given the lead then.
