    The Boxing Thread

    One of the most bizarre things you'll see for a while. Deontay encouraged to hit a mascot live on TV. Presumably they were expecting a playful jab, he throws a haymaker and breaks the jaw of the fella inside the costume.

    You might say that @ckny but in the very same game he did this:

    Photography Equipment & Software Thread

    Here's a before and after I did in lightroom. Not sure about the crop, but I dicked about with the white balance, shadows and colour saturation too.

    IIRC Steve Staunton did it three times in a season in the early 1990s, twice for Ireland and once for Villa.

    Forza Horizon 4 Photo Thread...

    Superb work. I see they've made the arches big enough to drive through, but beyond that it's a faithful recreation. It's Chesterton windmill btw, does anybody else live near some of the locations depicted in game?

    Forza Horizon 4 Photo Thread...

    Not a screenshot, but I'm pretty sure this is the actual windmill from the game. It's five minutes outside of Leamington Spa, which is where Playground Games are headquartered. Can anybody recreate it in game?

    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    Does Khabib care? I'm more into boxing than MMA but the era of Conor McGregor strikes me as an interesting time in the history of MMA. Is he the catalyst for fighters becoming bigger than promotions? Are the guys coming up now reaching the point where they don't really need the UFC? Boxers have been on independent promotions for decades and as we are now reaching the point where everybody has their own streaming service they don't even really need to be beholden to television networks. KSI and Logan Paul got 800,000 PPV buys for a white collar boxing match on YouTube. Someone's gonna try and put a big MMA card up at some point, right? Stuff like McGregor being immensely popular and Khabib falling out with the management only make that day more likely in my eyes. It might not be those two guys, it might not be in this generation of fighters, but I'd wager the MMA scene looks very different in a decade. Sadly it will probably be bad for the fans as you'll get fighters ducking each other like they do in boxing, but I think it's inevitable.

    The Unofficial Aston Villa thread!

    Well, this thread only seems to get bumped when people die and sadly today our former chairman, inventor of the package holiday and the bicycle kick, one Sir Herbert Douglas Ellis has passed away. Seems kinda apt he died in a week where Villa made a managerial change. RIP Doug.

    I'll take any info about him tbh, I know he was at Liverpool when they were flirting with administration and I chuckled to myself when listening to the Football Weekly podcast and Barry Glendenning was tipping Rafa for the Villa job even though he had a very public falling out with Purslow.

    What's wrong with Purslow? Presumably you support Liverpool where he appears to be a convenient scapegoat for the failing of others. He fell out with Rafa and appointed Hodgson iirc, but wasn't he working under Hicks & Gillett who'd left the club without a pot to piss in? He facilitated the sale of the club to Fenway before doing a fairly decent job at Chelsea. I'm quite happy with the appointment if truth be told.

    Dean Smith in as new Villa manager, John Terry in as assistant. I'm pretty confident that could work, Terry knows a lot of the squad and they all seemed to like him last year while Smith seems to be a good coach who plays nice football. Could be the start of something good and it's the approach I'd have taken over appointing from the usual merry-go-round or someone with zero experience.

    Dean Smith and John Terry in at Villa. My first choice comes in. Lovely stuff.

    Seems Drew's sister lives in London, he's flying over to visit and has decided to have a meet up on October 26th.

    I dunno about that, but then I really like being able to taste the egg in a cake.

    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    A few more from me. Again, pretty much everything I take tends to be stuff I stumble upon while I'm just going about my daily business, I rarely (if ever) go out to shoot photos with something specific in mind. Perhaps I should start doing that a bit more often. Took this while walking to school with my kid this morning, had to use my phone (Galaxy S8) as I'd not picked the camera up. The image is a bit soft but I really liked the shafts of light filtering through the trees. At work in Wembley yesterday, this is the bridge over the railway which leads to the stadium (I've got my back to it here) but this was all about the light and shadows. I'm still somewhat conscious about shooting random passers by as subjects so I think often these can feel like snapshots. Here the guy had his back to me so I felt a bit happier, though I did bring the shadows up on his back so he didn't look like a silhouette. I hope I've not made it look unnatural. I'm slightly more comfortable shooting through windows, though I still don't feel confident enough to compose shots carefully, I'd rather shoot from the hip (so to speak) and figure it out on the computer later. I really like the idea of night time shots with multiple points of lighting like this though. Still not got anything I'm over the moon with but It's getting there. With a longer lens I'm a bit more brazen about things. I do like how longer focal lengths compress backgrounds too.
