    Football Thread 2018/19

    Weird article as it seems to be based almost entirely on stats, which don't always tell the whole picture. There are definitely other factors at play with the Kepa deal, I don't think Chelsea were planning on selling Courtois but he forced a move (I don't blame him tbh, I'd have done the same if I got a chance to not be estranged from my children) and Bilbao never sell their players cheaply, almost certainly because of their Basque players only policy. They knew Chelsea just got £65m for their keeper and only had a few days to do the deal. Make us an offer we can't refuse.

    Nah. Overseas fans just want to see the big teams thrash whoever they are playing. It will be Barcelona vs sacrificial lambs and Real Madrid vs sacrificial lambs.

    Football Kits 2018/19

    Villa third kit. Rumours are that this was the desigers preference for the home shirt, or certainly one he really liked, which explains why it's not something we would wear when the home shirt does clash. It's a bit 'out there' for me but people seem to really like it.

    Well, there are only three tube stations and Finsbury Park mainline within a short walk of the stadium. Gotta beat those crowds.

    That's about fifteen minutes up the road. Went up a couple of times to the shops but didn't do much with the camera. The upload here is abysmal so I've not posted much but I did get this nice shot of a boat in Ravenglass.

    Anyone else got the urge to Visit Rwanda after watching this games? I hear it's really beautiful these days, they've not had a genocide since the 90s.

    Leeds playing some Bielsa-ball against Derby today. Dunno how long it will last, Bielsa teams are famous for running out of steam but if he's the guy where Guardiola and Pochettino got their ideas from (and they both seem to be happy to identify as disciples of his) then it's going to be fun.

    EFL Championship 2018/19 - All aboard the rollercoaster

    Two wins from two for Villa. Six goals scored and it seems we are going to be sharing them about. So far our goalscorers have been both full backs, both centre backs, an own goal and a defensive midfielder. Not complaining or anything, but I hope this little flurry of unlikely goalscorers isn't papering over the cracks of a broken attack.

    Well, they had to burn all the ones with the Pro Evo badge.

    Clearly you've never been to the north of Warwickshire. Stratford, Leamington & Warwick are all lovely. Rugby & Nuneaton are shitholes.

    I'll say, I saw a bloke in a Wolves shirt in Warwickshire the other day. Normally we don't let you guys east of the Galton Bridge.

    Presently on the Cumbrian Coast, was hoping to see the Milky Way this week but you know all that sun that the rest of Europe has had for the entire summer? The clouds which normally block a bit of that out are currently over Cumbria. All of them. I've not seen an inch of blue sky in 24 hours. Hopefully the wind will blow a clearing before I head back south.

    EFL Championship 2018/19 - All aboard the rollercoaster

    Scattered thoughts on spotty internet as I'm in a relatively remote part of the Lake District, albeit with Sky TV. Decent win for the Villa tonight, felt comfortable if truth be told and nice to see heads not drop after conceding first. Still not sure whether Goebel meant it for Hull's goal or whether he got lucky but I don't think he'll be able to recreate it very often. Loved Hutton's strike, he's just got something about him that I like despite the fact he's a very limited footballer. There's a work ethic there I dig. I know it's only the opening day but the story seems the same as last season where the goals are going to be scored by people who aren't playing up front. There's talk of Tammy Abraham coming in loan from Chelsea which might help I guess. Loving the new shirts btw, great to see Grealish in the starting XI though I'm not sure if his withdrawal from the pitch with ten minutes to play was the "goodbye" which Sky Sports clearly hope it is.

    Splatoon 2 - Octo Expansion AVAILABLE NOW

    Just picked this up having never played a Splatoon game before and I'm kicking myself I didn't get it earlier. Really good fun, I can actually play it with my kids and even as a total newbie I can kinda hold my own. I take it the weapons don't matter that much, or if they do then like in Call of Duty you get good guns early and it's not a case of putting time in means your gear beats new players just because they are new. Anyway, I guess I should do a bit of homework. What's worth knowing? I'm just dicking about on Turf War (regular) at the moment and I've not really got to grips with the gear or weapons system yet. Having fun with the roller and the custom splattershot jr, but are they any good?

    Villa fan checking in. Still not sure what to make of our chances this season, we've had the most turbulent summer I can remember which is saying something as Villa have been a club who have spent a decade specialising in turbulent summers. Given that Tony Xia wrote a load of cheques he couldn't cash and it was looking like we would be entering administration then just getting to the opening weekend with the squad as intact as it is gives me some hope. We've got a new majority owner who seems to be incredibly rich, whether that money makes it onto the pitch remains to be seen but I'm not holding my breath. Still, I think Jack Grealish is the best player in the Championship and James Chester is as good as a central defender as we could hope to have at this point so I've got a glimmer of hope. Difficult to see where the goals will come from, maybe Kodjia is over the injury which basically destroyed his 2017/18 season and we go back to seeing a guy who is good for 20 goals a season. If he can find the back of the net regularly then we have a shot, if not then I'll just have to write this off as the season where we had a really nice kit.
