  1. Football Season 2023/24

    Probably one of the biggest robberies of recent times, NEVER in a MILLION years was that a penalty for PSG. These sorts of decisions are the reason people call corruption. Absolutely gutted for Newcastle and their supporters and the ref was having a great game until that intervention, I think he was focusing too much on the contact with the arm that he missed the ball coming off the chest first, that's the only explanation. Now Newcastle might be dropping into the Europa or out of Europe entirely.
  2. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Morocco have been really good, they've just made it 2-0.
  3. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    Just waiting on ShopTo to dispatch Scarlet, they started processing it on Tuesday and I almost thought hopefully I'd get it today, but it's still processing.
  4. The new anime and manga thread! [Use Spoiler Tags!]

    I've been discovering a certain classic shounen series this week. I'm sure we all know a certain Anime called Yu Yu Hakusho. Been spending most of my birthday week binge watching, at the Dark Tournament Arc, episode 44 and boy has it been enjoyable, I just love the 90's aesthetic, such a nostalgia trip.
  5. Football Season 2022/23

    Top of the league for a 3rd straight weekend no matter the result at Old Trafford. Would never have believed that at the start of the season. But a 4-point cushion at stake on Sunday, it's a shame we picked up all these midfield injuries, hopefully we have enough to get the result but we shall see.
  6. What Have You Bought?

    Ordered a few recent Steam releases: These games I got in Fanaticals Mystery game bundles that cost £1.79 for 2 games, unfortunately already had one game (The Escapists)
  7. Football Season 2022/23

    That was such a satisfying comeback win. So glad Gabriel got to make amends for his error with the winner. Good to hear him say his teammates lifted him after he gifted Mitrovic the opener. There are sterner tests after this month, but just got to keep up the good work.
  8. Football Season 2022/23

    If Haaland can do that to Palace, he should be right at home in the Premier League
  9. What Have You Bought?

    Phone was due an upgrade, so I swapped from my Sony Xperia 5 II to a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
  10. Football Season 2022/23

    Since Arteta has taken the reigns, and been backed in the transfer market, buying young and exciting younger talents and re-establishing a mentality, an exciting attacking brand of football and reconnecting the fans with the club, I'm filled with a new found sense of optimism with our future prospects, Post Wenger things haven't gone well for us since but it's finally looking like there is light at the end of the tunnel. United post Ferguson feel like they are caught in a vicious cycle that may once in a few seasons result in a distant second place finish. The amount of Money United have pissed away on big name players and managers that just haven't worked out, with a transfer strategy that is all over the place. You can't honestly say you have enjoyed seeing this?
  11. Football Season 2022/23

    I honestly think United need to go the Arsenal route, promote youth and long-term gains for a better future, they've thrown obscene amounts of money at players and most of them have flopped. Most people question why so much money on a 30-year-old. But it's a signal of the desperate situation Manchester United find themselves in. Having to overspend to put a band aid over a severed limb (potentially, he might not flop).
  12. Football Season 2022/23

    And here comes the public apology from a player, this time it's David De Gea. Credit for coming out on TV and apologizing for his own mistake for the first goal. Brentford worked their socks off and even had the quality to hurt United but they certainly didn't help themselves. Let's be real, what top players want to join Manchester United right now after these first few games? I think they have to try and go the Arsenal route and rebuild with youth
  13. Football Season 2022/23

    Looks as though United have a broad agreement in place for Rabiot and expecting to launch an improved bid for Arnautovic. Definitely seem to be panic buying right now. If these were actual targets why wait until now to make them?
  14. Football Season 2021/22

    It's come home! Congrats to the Lionesses!
  15. Football Season 2021/22

    Scrappy goal but no-one cares! 2-1 England!
  16. Formula 1: 2022 Season

    It's crazy how easy this title race is for Max right now, Merc's aren't quite there yet on raw pace, but the Ferrari strategy team needs sacking, it was clear the hard tyre wasn't working yet they put race leader LeClerc on it anyway and we saw how that went. 3 wins clear now with 9 remaining, if it wasn't obvious already, Max is going to be a back to back World Champion (Despite how he won it last season)
  17. What Have You Bought?

    Just bought this, the Game Boy Operator that allows you to play GB, GBC and GBA carts on PC. Figured it would be a great tool for streaming some classic games like some of my old Pokemon Games.
  18. PC Gaming Discussion

    Seems I'm a bit late at this point. But I would Highly recommend Atelier Ryza, it's going to be one of those games where farming ingredients might be a chore, but then games with alchemy and the like normally are. But I do find the combat some of the best in the series yet. The plot as well is pretty solid.
  19. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

    The drip-feed of content should be evidence enough that Single player is not that important compared to the multiplayer aspect.
  20. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

    Each piece only costs 100 coins, I bet you have more than enough to kit out a handful of characters at this point.
  21. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

    My copy arrived yesterday but didn't have time before work. I'll give it a go whilst at my parents. Would love to play some games with (and against) you guys.
  22. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

    Just in case people miss the free kick and want a quick look at it. It was fun when I got a decent team mate, the game at this point had loads of people playing for themselves, but on reflection, maybe some were just getting confused by the hectic gameplay. I can see this game being the best playing solo or with a full team so you get less confused on which player you are controlling. I got enough to keep my pre-order.
  23. Mario Strikers: Battle League Football

    I'm gonna stream my session with the demo tonight, however sounds like it won't be a fun time judging by the posts on here of the earlier slots. Maybe it'll be better tonight, time will tell.
  24. Football Season 2021/22

    It's come out today that the kid he assaulted is autistic too. When it rains it pours. He should offer to replace it regardless but I'd be surprised if he didn't after this fact has come to light.
  25. Formula 1: 2022 Season

    Ferrari and Charles especially, are really pulling out a huge lead this early on in the season. Second DNF for Max is the main reason for that margin though. George Russell being 2nd in the standings just shows how consistent he has been in a car that is clearly 3rd quickest. Guess we just have to hope the short break before the European rounds of races can see some improvements to the teams that may help close the gaps.
