  1. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Bit of an awkward one this year with it being held in Qatar and...quite a few reasons for maybe why it shouldn't be there. Anyone watching this? Probably the biggest shock of all time today with Saudi Arabia beating Argentina. Mouth nearly hit the floor when I checked the score in work. Can't remember a score line like that. It's utterly insane.
  2. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Gutted, Wales. England scored more goals than I think Wales made passes in that one. Get in there, Rashford! Glad to see him at his best.
  3. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    I'm doing my school reports, it's been that shit.
  4. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    This England/Wales match has been shit.
  5. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    I can't tell if the score is slightly harsh or not. Croatia totally deserved that win and really turned it on after the poor start. Canada was more than a little naive defensively...but they were against a quality team today who were up for it. Great for Canada to get the goal and there were many positive moments for them in that match. That third goal really did it for them, it was pretty much over at that point.
  6. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Both games today have had more interesting scorelines than performances. The Japan/Costa Rica game was pretty dire, to be honest.
  7. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Morocco fully deserve this. Great all-round performance. Worked very hard for that.
  8. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Belgium are utter morons for sticking with Martinez for so long. 8 years! They've wasted such a great generation of players on a crap manager and have nothing to show for it. Needs to be ditched after this tournament, 100%.

    It does feel a bit too familiar, for all the wrong reasons. Wouldn't be surprised if the USA nick this late on.
  11. The Woooooorld Cuuuuup

    Had a pretty shit day at work and the Wales score directly in the middle of it didn't help. This England game is pretty bleh, too.
  12. The death of Twitter

    I quite enjoy Twitter, tbh. If you follow a range of accounts, you get a huge variety of stuff and I quite like dipping in and out. I don't live my life on there and see it as more of a casual browsing thing, but it's pretty good at being able to obtain information that you wouldn't always be able to find, or certain issues get highlighted there that are quite an interesting read. It's not a bad thing every now and again to see what exactly is going on in the world, and there are a lot of things that often go unreported or don't get the media attention they deserve. At the same time, Musk really, really fucks me off, and I hope he crashes and burns with this. He's a tyrant.

    Love a late winner! We were shite for most of that, but...'JANDROOOOOO! What a player. Our most exciting forward, to be honest.
  14. Football Season 2022/23

    Hello and welcome to all! New season starts tonight and the transfer window remains open...which United bluddy need to invest in! I've also recreated The Great N-Europe Fantasy Football League for you to join. My team is ready, which I have dubbed "The Slabhead Express". https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/auto-join/29p58w Merry Footballmas.
  15. Living to 100

    That's really sad to hear, and I'm sorry for that. It's a shame that this is actually a lot more common than we think amongst people of that age bracket. Their bodies have broken down, their memory isn't what it used to be, and they've been through heartache with losing their loved ones. My mum has got a form of Parkinson's and we lost our dad 8 years ago. She's deteriorated so much in the last 5 years or so and is just feeling miserable. Old age seems very cruel at times.

    It'll be interesting to see just how long they're willing to give Potter in that job. Chelsea are notorious for moving on managers when things don't go well, but Potter will need quite a lot of time before his ideas can begin to turn into results. He's a manager who has got clear ideas of how he wants his team to play football, so naturally you'd assume that Chelsea would want to give him that time that is needed. I can't help but think though that it's a match that doesn't work for either party. He was on to a really, really good thing with Brighton and I feel that a club such as Spurs or Arsenal would've been more suited to him and what he wants to do. At the same time, he's not going to bring the instant results Chelsea want either, so it doesn't really work for them, too.

    Well deserved and well played. We were shite. Must have been hitting up the clubs late last night.
  18. Football Season 2022/23

    We're getting twatted by Villa after 10 minutes. Eeesh.
  19. Football Season 2022/23

    I'm watching the titans of Leicester City play against the Crystal 'The Crushers' Palace right now. Mainly because...it's on. There's men kicking a ball somewhere, and I have access to it, so I'm watching it. It's like somebody took out all of the joy out of football and televised it. Can't remember a single interesting thing happening all game. When it's a neutral game involving two teams that nobody cares about, the least they could do is make some goals! Boring bastards.

    Be positive, Bawwwwb! There's a good chang that this will be great.

    Arsenal starting very well against Liverpool. This is another one of those fixtures that always seems to deliver.
  22. I thought it would make sense this time around to un-date this thread, so that we could just have a continuation year-on-year. I'm quite conscious that I didn't get as much exercise done last year as I had hoped, usually due to work. I'm trying to make a deal this time around to leave work sooner so that I can come home and get my exercise done and out of the way. I'm also looking to re-join a squash club, partly for the cardio, but also because it was quite fun and I miss playing it. Already got my third workout in of the new year, but my legs took a hammering the day before yesterday and are still quite sore now. I don't think I worked out legs for about 3 weeks, so I was anticipating this. It's a nice feeling to get back into it!
  23. Football Season 2022/23

    Sooner or later Liverpool will step it up a gear and it'll all click. I think. Maybe. I do wonder if that players are thinking the same. We're going through something similar. Some days, I wish we could just turn up and have the 3 points, a 3-course-meal, and an Amazon gift-card. All these bluddy teams expecting us to play football. Bastards!
  24. The Last of Us (TV)

    I'm looking forward to this. I'm ready. It all hinges on the writing and performances of the two leading actors. It's also a little difficult when you've already got god-tier source material, and I'd hate for this to be constantly compared to the that. It should be its own thing.

    On the plus side, we outscored them in the second half. The first half was a car crash. Mentally, we weren't at it and crumbled when their first goal went in. So many bad/terrible performances out there today. Can't quite believe we actually scored 3! One of those games where we should've/could've lost 10-0.
