    Hell of an achievement - well done. Hopefully I won't be too far behind you, but the last few levels seem to take ages. I'm about 10% of the way through level 8. I reckon I'm a good 40 Athena chests away!! (Does that mean 20-odd Ashen Athena chests?)

    I think it shows how far we've come that a lot of Utd fans see this as a very tricky draw for them! 2 years ago we lost 1-0 at home to Wigan in front of less than 18,000 fans, which left us languishing in 18th place in the Championship.

    Wolves v Man Utd at a packed, noisy Molineux to earn a trip to Wembley (albeit a semi final which is a mega peeve of mine but still...) is a fantastic draw. Both teams play decent football - I think it'll be a cracking tie. Without a doubt the 2nd toughest draw we could have had, but we're capable of beating Utd if we play at our best. If we don't get through, it won't be through a lack of effort. You never know.... Bring it on. I'd love to get tickets but somehow I think they'll be bloody tough to get hold of.

    What books did you read in 2019?

    Previous: 4. Old Too Soon, Smart Too Late by Kieron Dyer with Oliver Holt I love a football autobiography, and this is a pretty good read by a player who was no stranger to controversy on and off the pitch. For a start, I didn't realise that he had suffered abuse as a child - this book is a lot more open and honest than a lot of books of this ilk. Dyer doesn't excuse his behaviour when he was a young player, but at the same time the misconceptions people have of him must be incredibly frustrating. And it's easy to believe his side of things - he admits to plenty of bad behaviour, and it was so easy for the media to paint him as more of a villain than he appears in his memoirs. The behind the scenes anecdotes during his time at Newcastle in particular is really interesting - particularly some of the stories about Graeme Souness. Well worth a look if you like reading about footballer's life stories. It's not as Partridge-esque as the quite incredible 'El Diego' (Maradona's autobiography which is the single most incredibly vain piece of non-fiction I have ever read in my life - staggeringly arrogant!) nor as dramatic as Pat van den Hauwe's book but one of the better ones I've read. 3.5/5
  5. Just watched Mountain v Oberyn. It's still fucking revolting - by far the goriest moment of the whole series, surely?

    Nowhere near as bad as Clara, or Yaz for that matter. And miles better than appalling old-Who cardboard cut outs such as Mel, Adric etc etc. I think poor River gets quite bad press. Cry me a.....no, I won't go there.

    The subsequent debate on the GoT thread was far worse than Sheeran's admittedly poor cameo appearance. I remember one poster saying it had ruined the entire series for him. Putting 2 and 2 together, I don't think he's a fan of The Ginger Dylan.

    Yes, it's a great scene. Mainly because the little bastard dies.

    No no no no, I can't be having this. Ron Weasley is the epitome of a best mate and is a perfect friend for Harry right from the moment they meet on the Hogwarts Express in the Philosopher's Stone. Winning entry? Pffft. Wrongest entry. By a mile. #teamron

    Apologies. To make it up, here's a photo of Adric from Dr Who. Who was possibly worse than either.
  12. Season 4 Episode 2 Fuck that is such a satisfying ending. I'd forgotten how much of a cunt they made Joffrey into. Awesome stuff.

    How has it taken this long before anyone mentioned him?

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/02/12/isaac-hayden-struggling-see-wolves-seventh-league/ This sort of shit does my head in. And being uber picky about Newcastle, there have been pretty poor errors from them in all 3 goals we've scored against them. Jota's opener at their place was just shite defending, Kenedy - who had just come on - didn't seem to want to run, allowing Doherty - who had been running his arse off for 93 minutes - to sprint the entire length of the pitch to score the winner at Sid James' Park. Boly's goal on Monday was rank goalkeeping. We could also mention the red card that Rafa the fraud said shouldn't have been a red card in the first game, without realising that Lascelles is never going to reach Jota, and the touch from Yedlin is fucking atrocious in the first place. Clear red card. We had more clear cut chances in both games, we had more of the ball in both games. So cry me a fucking river, Hayden. We didn't play that well in either game but deserved the 4 points we got, albeit with 2 injury time goals. Concentrate on your own short comings, your classless oaf of a manager and your relegation battle. Twat.

    That does not look good.
